- 3 Vehicles
- 3 Worlds & 6 Tracks
- 3D graphics, sound and stuff
- Burnin' Rubber has been upgraded from a webgame to a full standalone title!
- That's about it ;)
Improvements & Fixes
- We went through hell and back and the game is working. Biggest fix ever!
- Most art & sound assets are uncompressed
- Where possible we're using the highest resolution of textures we have, some have been upscaled for proper use on higher resolutions.
- Implemented bloom.
- Support resolutions up to 4k!
- Experimental gamepad controls
- For consistency reasons we have switched the nitro & handbrake buttons around. Sorry BR purists ;)
- Don't forget Control for looking backwards! Press 1, 2, 3 or 4 to look around your car.
- Proper, elegant Win10 fix! - Credits to TOMYSSHADOW aka Anthony Kleine
The game is very old, running on obsolete technology. However it should work without any major issues, although a random crash might occur.
You can quit in the main menu, pressing Ctrl + Q during game - or old skool by pressing the window close button.
Burnin' Rubbber should run properly even on older machines (5+ years old). This version does use a bit more video memory due to the some higher resolution menu and world textures. Please note performance will degrade more when running the game in a higher resolution and with more of the experimental advanced features turned on as these are not hardware accelerated. We recommend running the game in 1280x960.
Burnin' Rubber is 4:3 and runs in a window. Only experimental fullscreen functionality (Alt+Enter). Best fullscreen result is your native resolution.
Burnin' Rubber was made with Adobe Director, which has become obsolete over the past few years. We are trying to keep this game (and our other games) from being forgotten or lost. The game is fully functional, even on Windows 10.

HELLO XFORM game!!!!!!!!
A beautiful trip to my childhood. No problems here, as far as technicalities go. Pretty perfect soundtrack. Now, what about the second game?
I'll play the third and fourth one, but in terms of racing, I think the second was the best and I'd like to revisit it too. Thanks for everything.
Thank you for your kind message. We still plan on releasing the 2nd one as well.
There are couple of caveats. Beside being pretty busy atm BR2 has some odd 2d menus which are toughto scale and manage. We already did a bit of work though but I cant commit to a date
can you please STOP putting games on zip files?
it is really annoying because i need to pay dor the winzip thing to get this going
If you install and use the itch app you can directly install the games - just like you would with Steam for example. Most Windows can extract zip files without any other programs as well.
WinZip isn't necessarily required to open zip files. Windows explorer already has the ability to open and extract them. A program I'd recommend using is 7Zip, it's free and supports a wide range of archive file types.
Xform, you forgot to remove shockwave ad, just like other standalones did.
Is Burnin' Rubber Shift/Cartapult comming?
When will any of the traffic slam games be released as standalone games?
I can move them up a bit, but we have couple of games in the backlog to do first. We're going as fast as we can...
Like to do them though :D Especially the first. I am most 'scared' for the second one as that is Flash
When will Burnin' Rubber 2 standalone be released?
OLD GAMES NOT SUPPORT 60FPS
Can You All Itch.io Your Games Make For Free Please...
Everyone Will Love It
They are a two person dev team they need money to make more games and to support their family's
Requests for days, Burnin’ Rubber 2 PLEASE?!
RALLY POINT 7 PLEASE!!!
Hi XForm! Are you guys going to make a standalone version of Army Of The Dammed? If so I be glad to buy it.
Wow..the latest update makes the CPU step up its game this time, and the game overall runs a bit smoother. Thank you!
No thanks! I made a small error when implementing some basis gamepad controls which indirectly influenced a bit of the AI behaviour as well :( Sorry
Hey Xform, did you fixed the AI problems we had earlier?
Xform said that they will release BR2 standalone. Be patient.
AI behaviour has been addressed in the latest build
But the cpu should perform well like it did before!
It is the same - there have been no changes to the AI behaviour. Maybe your memory of the game is different than it actually was. It has been a while ;)
Hey xform, do cars flip In this game? Because when I hit computer opponent in Desert Canyon above the bridge, the car flew inside the canyon mountain. then this happened:! The car was upside down when respawned above the bridge, but the it sank under the bridge, & car was straight when sank, but again it flipped & sank, then respawned. Had to take the weird screenshot. Also, when Computer Oppnent’s car at starting on bridge hit me, I flew out of the level, but then respawned. Imean, i flew out really far, I can see the level’s in geoid shape!
Hey Xform, you know the game’s still on shockwave? If you paste this Burnin’ Rubber Shockwave Preloader link In Internet Explorer 11’s Address bar, you can play this as standalone version, because if you played this on any browser, it’ll download on your computer! Then there’s Unity3dgame’s weblink. Highly recommend having Adobe Shockwave already installed & Microsoft Edge’s Internet Explorer mode. Highly recommend having Adobe Shockwave already installed & Microsoft Edge’s Internet Explorer mode, then click on run control if it asks to run “Shockwave ActiveX Control”. This means that they’ve your game files, even though shockwave removed them from their page, but the files of this game’s still there. & I’m pretty sure it’sn’t out of place.
Would’ve prefered without bloom, but thats fine. Thanks for adding controler support, even I used laptop keys for playing.
You can turn off bloom in the advanced section of the starter. It should be off per default though...
I was addicted to Burnin' Rubber as a child!
I tried out the game, and it was awesome! Also, I subscribed in Patreon!
It was awesome exept the fact that opponent ai is broken.
:D Did you played back in those days?
OHHHHHHH, NO WAY!!
“JUST SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!”😤💰
