    Guess the "patch" just deleted all the alpha files (20gb of them) and slapped the beta files on top of it then, cause that was the exact download size for me and I had it installed.

    Anyway, I think I'm going to wait and see if they optimize it more/I get a better PC, the first 10 mins on a level are complete framedrop rape, and I can't do sharp turns or it starts struggling. Can't really fault it for not running well on my pc though , I'm way below the minimum requirements, I don't even have a directx 11 card. Still got to electro bastard the kwandeggers so I'm satisfied. :love:

    Had a go, mostly what Astral Rag said. This feels like the old Carmageddon, but needs optimization.

    I met a cop car, damn thing wrecked my car twice. I was throwing mortar and anvils at him and he barely noticed. Then I met one of the CU-NT cars and wrecked it with a ACME Damage Magnifier.

    And plowing through the stadium was just as fun as it was all those years ago. Am I mistaken, or does the stadium now have floors?

    Oh, and "Groovin' Peds" has to be heard to be believed.

    I know, and I did.

    I also found a Napalm power-up that just sets peds (one ped?) on fire once you're close enough, before it would launch a slow-moving seeking fireball at the peds.

    There's also a Solid Granite Car power-up near Checkpoint 4, I wish I had that when the cops were trying to bust my chops.

    Some of the new powerups are pretty neat. Expect the one that turns you into glass ._.

    I used the Hawk for the death races mostly.

    The last screenshot is form a beautiful place full of points.. if you have the electro ray or ped repulsificator to score a monstrous combo.

    Also - what car is on display on the second to last screenshot (top left corner)? Doesn't look like any I've seen in my game.

    Yeah I'm surprised it's so soon, game seemed like it still has some ways to go not that long ago.

    I don't think this will end well. A shame because it could easily become a great Carma game but I don't think they will be able to bring it up to snuff in just over a month.

    25 cars and 9 tracks don't sound so bad, how much content original carma had at launch?

    What i don't get is why they are not using morphing for damage and instead they choose asset based damage. I am not part of beta or backer (to late) but from what i see this looks like TDR damage model which was lacking especially compared to Carma 2 galore in which you can essentially make pancakes from cars, rip them apart as you want horizontaly, vertically.

    It was always fun to watch car that got hit by something heavy in middle and that now looks like letter U with wheels at the ends

    That damage model was 50% of game for me. Nothing felt like taking on your enemy on your bumber and driving him into cornet just to watch him split apart.

    The problem isn't lack of content the problem is that the game is -still- very unpolished, very buggy and totally unoptimized. Multiplayer is basically broken.

    Stainless also fails to even acknowledge these performance issues.

    If they release the game in this state it will flop hard.
