Kart Racing Pro Beta 12 Released

4

Kart Racing Pro is a unique sim racing titles, with a one-man development team. PiBoSo has been hard at work, not only on this title but others as well, including MX Bikes, GP Bikes, and World Racing Series. He has now released another update for Kart Racing Pro, which marks the 12th beta release for the karting sim.

Last month, PiBoSo released a test video, showing off the Oculus Rift DK2 in the sim. This latest release features support for the VR headset, so now you can get behind the wheel of a kart via the Rift!

A wide variety of updates have also found its way into the sim. One notable addition is the FL 2015 Bodywork for the karts. Another welcome improvement is in the updates of the steering wheels, as well as improved shaders. For the full list of updates, check out this changelog below:

    Not tried KRP, but ive tried all his other sims and I own the full MXB.

    They are unique, and great in their own ways. But VERY light on content, and all in a perpetual state of beta’ness. The only one i can speak about with any real knowledge is MXB and i love it but its to early in development for most people to get the most enjoyment from it.

    The bike is VERY hard to control, much harder than MX sim imho as you control every aspect of the bike and the riders weight distribution. Which tbh nearly made me rage quite after the first hour lol.

    It took me maybe a week doing at least an hour a day until i could turn a slow clean lap lol, And even now after a couple of months (granted i dont play much anymore, maybe 2 hours a week) i often dont get clean laps.

    The bike is near impossible to control at slow speeds, its not really possible to throw the back end out in a tight corner to aid turning, this usually results in a fall. There are a handful of people who can ride pretty well, but i know for a fact they practice for multiple hours a day, multiple days a week.

    Its got huge potential. It could be THE mx simulator in the future IF Piboso can figure out the faults that i think are holding it back. And i truly hope he does because it could be amazing 🙂

      IIRC there is a free demo of Kart Racing Pro. 🙂

      • Yes there is, I’ve tested it, and it is quite fun! 😀

        Hey Miroslav. Yes there is a demo, but ive never really been that into Karting. I never really use the ones in GSCE or RF2 🙂
