TORCS Version 1.3.1-test1 Released

There is a new test release available for download. The source package compiles on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows (vc++ 6.0). There are various files available:

You find the installation instructions for the source package in the README file, a common mistake is to forget "make datainstall". This version does not yet include updated documentation, I will bring it up to date while you are testing this release and include it into the final package. For a detailed changelog hit the Read More link below. Bye, have fun,


If your build fails and you use GCC 4.3 (gcc --version), you need to adopt some include directives in the files which cause an error:

  • Replace #include <new.h> with #include <new>
  • Replace #include <string.h> with #include <string>
