A Multiplayer mode for RoR is under construction. We made the very first multiplay debug session last night with Thomas. You can see the result in the screenshot section and in this (historic) video he made:

There are still many details to fix, but the first results are very encouraging.

Linux port of RoR 0.31a ready!

The Linux port of the latest version of RoR is now available.
No joystick support yet, but with the probable switch toward Ogre 1.4.0 (Eihort) in the next version of RoR, will come OIS, which I hope will enable a cross-platform joystick support (and save me some DirectInput headaches).
I changed a bit the start sequence: ./RoRconfig then ./RoR (no more ./start).
Note that RoRconfig comes with a new dependency for wxgtk 2.6 (wxWindows for GTK).

New official forum

Rigs of Rods has finally an official forum, it is located at I hope it will become the new meeting and chatting place for the growing RoR community.
I must thank here the volunteers that will operate and moderate it, as I can not do it myself by lack of time, and I hope you will respect their work, by making the forum a convivial and fun place to chat.
