Has anyone else tried it out? I joined one game but the other players were just racing through the checkpoints. I came in last place because I was trying to smash and have fun.

It did seem to work pretty well, the first time I joined the game crashed, but I restarted and got in the second time without any problems.

I didn't spend much time poking around with the latest build. I'm hoping there's some arena maps for proper crash and burn fun.

Yes! See if you can join some of us noobs, CC - the weekend evenings always good :) We had a few cracking games this weekend, even Nobby turned up for a punt with us, and invariably won :)

It's true to the beta label, it's flakey as hell with connection drop outs, frozen players and power-ups stuck on.. but dodgy Carmageddon MP is better than no MP, and it's 20 years in the making. Stampede is fast and furious, very tight, active gameplay.

It amused me to see that The Plow was available when the vehicle allocation was set to random, initially this seemed unfair, but after actually playing it it's balanced well because every other vehicle is so much more nimble. On race mode, if you get the Plow you'll spend most of the game feeling lonely, chasing shadows.

I did have to drop my settings lower than satans ballsack on a hot day at the office though, and that was windowed mode @ 720p. Worth every minute. And every penny of the ridiculous Goody Ball Bag KS backing I did now IMO (it made more sense when the alternative was the game not getting funded) ;)

Matt, you a noob? :lol:

Actually, I'm a MP noob, usually do SP mode, sad I know. I guess I ought to get a headset like a proper MP gamer uses, I saw the little speaker icons flashing on the other players cars while waiting for the game to begin but didn't hear the conversations.

None of us are using mics (that I know of,) we just mute everyone automatically as soon as we get into a lobby, communicating via IRC is far easier.
