Ok, I definatly advise you get 4x4 EVO. Since that game is online forever. And is a fully featured online racing game which has chat rooms and palyerspy integration and can download new maps as well. Also get F355 Challenge it is a SUPERB racing game. The best racing sim on the DC. People play from all over the world quite regularly in online time trial matches.

MSR and other games that support ghost race swapping can be done via email. This really works well if you have 1 or 2 people you are constantly swapping back and forth with, however down the road it is my goal to develop a ranking system. This won't be for a while thought since it will require a lot of coding and research on my part. However it is something I eventually plan on doing. But using a free ISP to swap the files usually doesn't work because you need to use the ISP's SMTP server to send out the file which in most free isp situations, an accessable smtp server isn't available.

Ghost Race activity on the site will eventually get more active, just down the road. It's going to take some time to effectivly integrate it into the community in a proper way.

Well are you using a dialup account provided by your cable provider to go online?

Yes it is daylight savings time, your gmt right now is gmt-5, and in winter months it will change to gmt-6. I just checked your profile. And your all set. Your timezones are set correctly. (btw: be sure to set the timezone at the very bottom to affect the boards time, so set that to gmt-5 as well).

I just got 4x4 evo yesterday and all I can say is that it looks really sweet. I can't wait to test it online, but I'm on the other side of the world! (Philippines to be exact) I will try to connect this weekend and see what's so great about the online functions of this game.
