TORCS Some News
I'm happy to see that the TORCS page view statistics on sourceforge has turned 1,000,000
I'd like to thanks all the contributors and all the supporters, they really make the project alive.
You've certainly noted that the site is not updated very often, but the torcs-users mailing list is much more active.

The latest projects news:
  • Bernhard has started to organize a robot championship and proposed a draft for the rules (use the Read More... button to see a copy of the rules)
  • Christos is actively working on 3D simulation, graphics (cars dammage) and sound (very nice). All that is in the CVS tree.

Have Fun !

TORCS Some news
Some news about the project:

I'm preparing a 1.2.2 version with nice features like in-game map (by Berniw), head and brake lights, shadows on cars and beter 3D objects structure for performance (by Christophe), split-screen, mirrors, windows transparency on the Patwo's rally cars and new car packs from K/Cendra (see the link in the side block).

I also went last week-end to an event where the LUG of Savoie (www.alpinux.net) was showing a coupling between a Peugeot 406 board and a Linux-PC. TORCS was used to demonstrate the coupling. click on "read more..." to see the pictures.

TORCS Berniw's Robot Tutorial is Now Completed
The robot tutorial written by Bernhard Wymann is now completed.
It covers everything you need to write a real good robot for TORCS.

The topics cover all the robot development from the base file creation, the compilation process, the car control with steering, throttle and brake, how to compute a good path, playing with car setup, car painting, collision avoiding and overtaking, and pit stops. To be short: all you need is here.

The tutorial is available on Berniw's home page.

I hope that this will motivate you to write your own robot, and enter future competition.

Note for the future (and current) robot authors: please release your robot, even if it does't go very fast, even if most of the code is derived from another robot or from the tutorial.

Thank you very much Bernhard for all your efforts, help and enthusiasm.
