Warning: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/project-web/torcs/htdocs/includes/cmsinit.inc on line 61

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>
