Download Turbo Sliders v2.5.3

PostMon Nov 24, 2014 6:06 am

New version of Turbosliders (v2.5.3) is officially released! We're celebrating 10 years of this marvelous game!

Download (Windows)
Download (Linux)
Download (OS X) - This version is packed by TS community, not by TS's developer. But it should work well for Mac users. (Thanks to velmu!)

These are some of the most important new features and changes that you'll enjoy in v2.5.3:
- Tyres wearing – now you'll be able not just to refuel and repair the car damage in the pit, but also to change car tyres.
- Drafting (slipstream) – if enabled, it gives you a certain extra acceleration when driving close behind of another car.
- Maximum track size is changed from 2000x2000 to 4000x4000.
- Cars movement is smoother than ever and enhanced by some new handling parameters.
- Free camera added. You can use it when spectating, watching recordings, or when you're wrecked.
- Many libraries have been updated and the game has been compiled with a new version of Visual Studio. So, it should work well on newer systems.
- Purchasing a license isn’t fixed to 19.95 $ anymore. You'll have more options now, and some of them are much lower values (LINK).

To see the list of all changes, open "versions.txt" file inside of "doc" game folder.
You can read more datails about drafting and tyre wearing inside of "README-drafting.txt" and "README-tyres.txt" files.


Here are some useful download links:
Download (F1 track pack)

Why do I have to read forum for all of you.

And it's explained in "cardef.car" file inside of "cars" folder. Default cars are the same as before, of course (64 images).

Thanks!
I just think that this is exactly one of the things that should be had in mind when releasing a new version of this game. Not everyone knows how it works and in my opinnion all new features should be already activated, or set. No need to go to a file editing stuff. Most of the users dont even know how to do that.
So, there shouldnt be the need of looking on the forum trying to see how to do it. But you´re right, I should have looked a bit cause I knew it was around somewhere but, when you just want to play something, you loose quickly the interest if its too complicated to put it working. :?

Sorry, im just being honest here, and trying to see things from the prespective of a newcomer!

Maybe you just needed to rejoin the server after car files were downloaded?

Try my F1-NG car. Then we'll know if it's something fixable by increasing 256 images to 360.
