Setting this game up, and I thought you needed to buy the base game to get it, which is why im doing it now. I read the fine print :)

I'm getting an error saying my graphics car is out of date, when it is up to date.
Windows 8 or 7? Card details?

This is one of the major problems we are facing currently,game is so old now that its starting to have issues with new drivers and machines. You're not the first to have this problem though so might be able to help fix it.
And yea its 100% free other than 1 league on a sunday night which has a members fee to pay for the server. Every other league is free to join and race.

Actually I'm on Windows 10 Preview, and my graphics card is AMD 7970 etc.

I couldnt find any documentation among google, so glad im not the only one with this issue.

EDIT: Perhaps you could suggest to the mod creators to start on Online Bangers 2 and use a newer game for the base, like GTA San Andreas, or something. I also think it would be cool to see some sort of damage to vehicles.

You might be the first to try run it on windows 10 :) Ill have a little dig later and see if i can help you.
There's a bit on here http://www.onlinebangers.co.uk/installation-guide/ about running in compatibility modes,that might help.

We are looking at a few options for the future of the mod.Me with wreckfest,others with the new carmageddon and beamNG. It all depends which suits our needs later on,at the minute non tick all the boxes.There is damage in the mod at the minute.All the models all have pre-staged damage and the engine supports basic vert movement in real time (like wreckfest) aswell. Im looking at ways to increase the distance verts can be move in real time.

The good things about nascar heat are that anyone can run it (old engine,low spec requirements).Has support for big servers hosted locally (35 car final last night with no lag),its a sim engine so everything can be setup realistically (although the mod isn't 100% realistic) and everything is moddable.

You can see some of the damage in a little test video i recorded

I did run in compatibility mode XD and I could try running it on my old laptop, or on another compatibility mode.

Might be easier with the old laptop :) Could be a driver issue,have read that some of the most upto date drivers dont like the game.
You can get old AMD drivers from here http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

Example of the prestaged damage.Vert damage then stacks on top of this.

Instead of bouncing between drivers, I'll give it a go on my laptop later.

Another new track. This time Ringwood UK.
Real life in car footage : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-Uvh38puAg

Probably the most requested track throughout Heat's existence, Ringwood Raceway is now ready for download!
I originally started making Ringwood in February 2013 for a few months but lost interest. In February of this year I planned to continue, but decided to totally remake it instead, and it's paid off. Really pleased with how it's come out - first time doing a night track, and we don't have too many tracks under the lights, so it's really cool to drive round.

As with all tracks I'm involved with, the infield's been blocked off. If you find yourself stuck inside the infield, just head to the grass and you'll get reset. No inner armco ramp since the novelty of a car flying into the pack online will probably wear off after the first time.
Tyre lines indicate the oppo zone.
17.5 is my fastest lap time, though I'm sure quicker will be possible with the right car and setup.

Massive thanks to Lurch296 for getting tonnes of track photos - easily cut a few months off the production time with them. Cheers also to anyone else who supplied photos or gave input, especially about the steps Ryan, Aff etc!
 


Track name ingame is RingwoodRX
Make sure it's installing into your Run folder in the correct Program Files.
Download the RX track here: https://drive.google...FJLbWJyTUh4RkU/
Or download a 3 pack of the R, RX and anticlockwise versions here: https://drive.google...0NZV0tVRmJlWFk/

First meeting:
TNB will be hosting the UK Open here on Thursday 14th.
Book in here : https://www.facebook.com/groups/OnlineBangers/
 

An oldskool post and rope version will certainly be on the cards once I've got some other tracks done.
Enjoy,
Mark

Great work on the cars and tracks in this thread.  :)

That's exactly what I think Wreckfest should be about, just with better graphics and demolition model.
Slower driving speed, shorter tracks, cool car skins and banger looks.

WANT IT.  ;D

Finger crossed one day.We're upto 178 unlimited cars,126 2.0l and under cars,29 miscellaneous (vans,coaches,3 wheelers,Siamese bangers) and 46 tracks with more on the way. Might take a few years to catch up on wreckfest :)

Another new track.

Quote
A new Northampton has been long overdue. The current one is pretty huge and really high banked, though it's delivered it's fair share of good meetings over the years considering it's size.
But it's time there was a new version, so here it is!

As with all tracks I'm involved with, the infield area is largely blocked off.
The kerb situation was a little tricky; leaving it open would have caused issues I think, so inside the kerb area has been made partly inaccessible to prevent lunging, corner cutting and attacking from inside of it, as I don't think that would have been fair.
Tyres indicate the oppo zone and also block off the inner kerb.
16.16 is my fastest lap time so far.

I've also done a Figure of 8 version which is included in the install.

Big thanks to Tytey who got some really useful pictures and videos at Heartbreaker, which sped the track development up a lot.




Track name ingame is NIRRX/NIR8X.
Make sure it's installing into your Run folder in the correct Program Files.
Download the RX and 8X tracks here: https://drive.google...XBvV2ZfaUZVQlk/
Or download a 5 pack of the R, RX, anticlockwise, 8 and 8X versions here: https://drive.google...EFlZEwwTlNiZzA/

First meeting:
