Theres always Mono and from what I see is a pretty good port of .NET to other OS's. Though from what I understand Mono isn't a perfect port just yet.

If you run a Intel based Mac though then you can just use BootCamp and run Windows. Free (yes you must buy a version of Windows though) and VERY easy to use.

I see the USB adapter on their website, but don't see how you actually purchase it.

I wondered the same thing when I wanted to pull the trigger on this simulator a few months ago (wayyy worth it!!). When I signed up for the full game I believe I got a free month for ordering the usb with my purchase. It got to me in the US in 1 week. Keep in mind that they ship on Friday only, I of course ordered on a Saturday so I had to wait another week for it to ship lol. So order on or before Friday and you can get it in about a week.

Will an Intel graphics card work. If not, can you post a link or publish the video cards that do work.

Which intel graphics card? They have a few different models!

Min system requirements
- Windows XP SP2
- .Net framework 2.0
- Hyperthreaded Intel CPU, AMD Athlon 64 CPU
- 256 MB Pixel Shader 2.0 graphics adapter
- 2 GB system RAM
- 2 GB free hard disk space
- Soundblaster compatible soundcard
- DSL internet connection (512kbit/s)
- VRC USB adapter or controller (optional)

If you can play Half-Life 2, you can run VRC Pro. You may have to turn down some settings, but it should be OK.



I'm trying to get 3dMark06 onto the computer that I run the game on....I'll let you know what kind of scores I get, and that should be a decent starting point. Then you can install it on your computer too and see how it compares before shelling out for a better video card.

Heh, I tested and helped with design suggestions. The Physics were very good, the graphics were fairly basic, but that was a tradeoff for the 4 Wheel physics model, so the coders kept saying anyway

I just downloaded the onroad version and can't get it to work right. It doesn't respond well and seems as if my computer its at its limit? What are the optimal requirements for this program?
