game doesn't start - nik600 - 10-22-2006


i've installed vdrift on a slackware 11.0 with glx and 3d acceleration support.

The game works, i can start it, select the car, the track, set controls, ecc ecc

When i start a new game the engine goes to full power but the car doesn't start, even if the automatic clutch is selected.

Where am i wrong?

this is the output:

nik600@hostt:~/.vdrift$ vdrift

To get the car to start moving, you need to 1) shift into gear and 2) re-engage the clutch, even with autoclutch on. This means that in the "Assign Controls" screen you need to bind whatever button you set to "Shift Up" to "Engage Clutch" also (same for "Shift Down"). Does this help?
