Fritz.............look.....it's pretty simple. Just follow the instructions at the site. I recently joined myself and fell in love with the game. If i remember correctly , I downloaded the free game with the two free tracks after i registerd with VRC. I then ran the game for only about 5 minutes because i couldn't get my MS controllers to work or the "Realrace 2" radio to work right either. So i ordered up the "VRC USB Aadapter" , paid for it Via Paypal , and it arrived from HONG KONG In 4 friggin' days!! AMAZING !!!
Ok..........After i received the USB adapter , i follwed the simple instructions by plugging a reciever into it , and then plugging it into my USB on my computer. I then started the game......and WAAALLAA!!..........It worked flawlessly!!
I do hear allot of people on numerous websites and at the VRC site as well complaining about certain things , and about 95% of the complaints are from people not taking the time to read the instructions or the REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COMPUTER.
This game is a NEW game , which posess problems with computers running like Win 98' and lower. There are a TON of games that are out now days that won't run at all on anything older than windows 2000 , and they prefer windows XP. i myself run a high end gaming rig that i built myself which plays games like Doom 3 , far cry , Half life 2 and many other flawlessly.........so when it came to this game.......it had no problem at all. allot of the RC enthuseists don't realize certain things about computers.........they just expect that if they download something , it "should" work , because they WANT IT TOO...............it doesn't always work that way.
Anyways...........I hope this helps , and don't give up on the game , it really is a blast for sure!! Myself........If i would of had to upgrade my video card or some other hardware to run this game , I would have!! It's worth it to me. Have fun with it man!!
