There hasn't been much new on the scene, there's been some new cars and tracks but overall it's slowed down a bit. School is back for most of us. Urnemanden has been busy working with 512 textures to make Re-Volt have a bit more eye-candy. And.... R3-256 goes from 12MB to now under 9.9MB! That's something that even us 56k modem users can handle in an hour.

Not too much new scene wise... It's a shame there's no Xfire in-game for Re-Volt though. If you're like us and feel it needs to be added, please vote in this topic.

- Here you have the Most rare pic in all whole Re-volt History.
- Look carefully. Yes, it is the Ghost Car !!!. Now it is visible again on the full versions of re-volt !!
- In fact, this was one of my dreams, to get the ghost car again visible in the game. I remember from the year 2000 I was talking with another power user on the scene called Antimorph a so good friend o'mine !. He always told me, "the programmers are so lazy, and they must have of only disabled the car...."
- I am sure he was a long time trying to enable it, and making this he discovered how to make custom cameras also called Morph's copterTMMCC... Since these old times, my most intense dream about the game was to get this ghost car visible again. Now, years later, thnx to the power of my little program and called Phoenix R3, we can play with it on the time trail mode !. And is the power !!!!
