TORCS in VL6.0
« on: March 04, 2009, 01:57:44 am »

Hi all,

I have installed VL6.0 Standard Gold and I'm liking it a lot. Very pretty theme.

However, there is one game missing from the repo's that I loved in VL5.9 and that is TORCS!
Anyone have a idea when it will appear in the repo's?  Pretty please!  ;D

If you want one of the volunteer packages to package TORCS for VL6.0 it's best to place a request in the package request part of the forum here:

sparkyhall, thanks for your reply. I will remember for future reference.

Dave, you are a diamond geezer as we say here in the UK! I will download and install TORCS and give some feedback on its performance.

Cheers,

Tim.

Torcs was moved to the Testing Repository last night.  You should be able to install it today.
Let us know how it works for you.

Enjoy,
Dave

Dave,

Downloaded and installed a couple of days ago. I commented in the Packages and Updates forum about it.

Absolutely no problems at all, installed and runs very well.

Thank you for taking the trouble to do this, much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Tim.
