System requirements

Burnin' Rubbber 4 should run properly even on older machines (5+ years old).
This version does use more video memory due to the highres car and menu textures - this can cause issues on older non-dedicated video cards!
Please note performance will degrade more when running the game in a higher resolution and with more of the experimental advanced features turned on.
We recommend running the game in 1280x720 - fullscreen by Alt + Enter ingame.

Important

Burnin' Rubber 4 is 16:9 and runs in a window. Only experimental fullscreen functionality (Alt+Enter).

Burnin' Rubber 4 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.

However, Windows 10 users beware!
Issues can arise when you are on Windows 10 using a NVIDIA graphics card. 
We implemented a workaround to get the game up and running for Windows 10. 

Please mail for help or any issues to support@xformgames.com

how much money do you need to get burnin rubber 6 and if you guys got the game make Burnin rubber 4 free and 3

Ah, Xform.... So many of my great childhood games that stuck to my mind were made by this one company.

I really loved the games i used to play on Shockwave, and one day i felt like playing those again. The first one that came to my mind was Burnin' Rubber 3, so many rages, cries, tears from that game, but that's because we had a garbage computer, but somehow that game stuck in my memory for years over the others.

I'm really happy to see these people try and bring back the Burnin' Rubber series, and I truly hope and wish that they will never become lost like they were about to. Please don't stop!

I'd like to also ask for the reason that so many old and great games of peoples' childhood are just, well, nowhere... It's really sad to see these games disappear without a trace and reason. And it remained that way, it was never explained to us.

Thanks a lot Xform, you were a big part of my childhood, though without me knowing it.

With respect:

-Flippy

(+1)

Thank you for your kind words :) Much appreciated!
We are continously looking into bringing back our old(er) games, but it is proving a bit more difficult than we original hoped for.
Stay tuned though!
-Pieter

Xform, I'd really, really love to buy the game, however I do not own a Paypal account or a credit card since I'm underage. Would you consider listing this game on Steam like you did with BR5 so I can get it using a pre-paid card? I loved playing this game back in the day in Shockwave and I miss it.

They can't publish this game on steam, it does not demand the level of typical steam games.

Hey Xform,

I would like you guys to update some of the old features to Burnin Rubber 4.

The following features used to be in the very first and original version of Burnin Rubber 4:

1. Realistic Explosions - In the very first version of Burnin Rubber 4, the explosions were realistic. Meaning that when an explosion happened near a "physical" object (your own car and opponent's cars included), that object or car was "pushed" away, or at least physically impacted from the explosion. Also, the color of the explosions was also more orange-ish. But after the GOTY edition, the explosions were like they are now. I would like it if you guys put an option before we start the game saying "realistic explosions", which enabled all of the mentioned things. Also, when red barrels or gas tanks explode, their structure gets destroyed. In the original version, their structure remained the same. I would like it if you brought back this minor feature.

2. Car Leaning - In the original version of the game, the car leaned the way you turned. So, if you turned left, the car also leaned left. But after the GOTY edition, it was inverted. I would like it if you put an option before starting the game saying "invert car lean".

3. Bullets - After the GOTY edition, the bullets because a little more "realistic". But I really enjoyed it the way they were in the original version. Maybe add an option before starting the game saying "realistic bullets".

4. Remote Triggers - I believe before the GOTY version, when a remote trigger was activated during races, the HUD would disappear like it was a cutscene. Please bring back this feature.

5. Light in Dark Areas - In the original version, when your car entered a dark area, the lights would automatically turn on. This made it quite realistic and was good attention to detail. Please bring this feature back to if possible.

Those are the main things I want back that were originally in the very first version of Burnin Rubber 4. Also, instead of adding an option for each of them, you guys could instead add an option before starting the game saying "Change to Original Version" in which most of the mechanics that were in the original version (including the ones I have mentioned since they were part of it), plus any additional ones needed are brought back into the game.

I really look forward for this update, and would really appreciate it if it happened sometime. Thank You

1. idk if this is really needed

2. same thing here

3. same thing here again

4. this would be actually cool, i agree

5. cool

i am suspicious if this game is gonna get any updates soon to be honest

(1 edit) (+1)

Hey, thx for your opinion on the ideas.

I only want realistic explosions cuz it makes the races more fun. Cuz right now, (especially when u have unlimited armor) you can just plough through caltrops and shrug it off like they weren't even there. Whereas with realistic explosions, when u drive over them, u will at least slow down, or even flip over, which will make it easier for the opponents to get past you. Also, the realistic explosions and there more orange-ish color is just quite nostalgic for me and that's why I really want it. I hope u understand :)

Also, ur probably right cuz it's unlikely that Xform will update the game again cuz they're working on Burnin Rubber 6 probably.

They're not working on Burnin' Rubber 6. They need a budget first, or just simply explained they need investors who want to help to create the game

Currently, they are developing Police Pursuit.

(1 edit)

But do u agree with the realistic explosions thing?

btw cant wait for police pursuit >:)

police pursuit better be in burnin rubber 6 if possible

Hi Kraken456,

That is a pretty cool list you have written down there :) Thanks for your time and input.
Funnily enough most of your points ring a bell - but I can't recall why we did some of those changes.
BR4 always has been a very performance intensive game and my guess would be that we skipped or simplified much when going to GOTY edition. One of the most important things we needed to do was to scale down the filesize and loading times and get some more performance out of it.

While we tried to get some of the original content and functionality back for the standalone version it took me a lot (LOT) of time, especially getting all the original lighting stuff back in there. There were also some major issues that hadn't been properly addressed back then which took priority.

When doing the standalone version I did notice the lights turning  on/off automatically but it didn't dare expanding (or reverting) on it since it was changed to a button for the GOTY edition and with the additional lighting settings I just couldn't find a proper way to implement both properly (auto and button) on a short notice.

I don't really understand 3? What was different with the bullets?

-Pieter

Hey Xform,

Thx soooo much for replying.

About # 3, or the "bullets", what I mean is that after the GOTY update, it would indicate where a bullet came in contact with an object, with a little "animation". Try shooting bullets yourselves and you'll see what I'm trying to say. Because before the GOTY update, the bullets didn't really indicate where they came in contact with an object, just like it's in Burnin Rubber 3. And I only want this feature because it's quite nostalgic, but not mandatory. In fact, non of my suggestions are mandatory. I just really want them to be added because I liked them.

So yes, I understand that you guys have many other things that require more priority, and it does take a lot of time and effort to add features into the games, and I know you guys can't promise anything, but will you guys add my suggestion to Burnin Rubber 4 someday because I really want them :) But by all means take your time.

Please Xform i love burnin rubber2 please bring it back
it was my childhootd

If You Want To Play Traffic Slam Or Old Games From #XformGames If You Tinen Windows 7 Use Internet Explorer With Pluing Adobe Shockwave Player If You Have Windows 10 Use Mozilla Firefox Or Safari :)

um, make it free plz

No. The game is $5 man, get a job.

Hey Xform I downloaded the game on a different computer and I got a new computer but all off my progress is gone. How do I get my progrees back?

You have to copy the file located in C:\Users\[YOURUSERNAME]\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Director 11\BurninRubber4\Prefs called XBR4GOTYData.txt to the same location on your new computer! This is also the location where you can put your BR3 save file (called XBR3Data.txt). If you have the World DOmination achievement in BR3 - this will unlock the Tank in BR4 ;)

so  Xform is there anyway to download Burnin rubber 2 link file

i have a dell latitude d630

At this moment you cannot play Burnin' Rubber 2 anymore unfortunately. There are no official sites that may host the game, and most browsers do not support the Shockwave plugin anymore :(.

Hey XformsGames i found a small bug at burning ruber 4 because i saw a object is float in the air i cunt Climb into it can you please fix the small bug floating issue please .  :)

please bring it back burnin rubber 2

this game has really many bug.

dissapointed with this problem..

ui turned to white when i go other world or go in to garage

game stop

game shutdown..etc

The game is much more stable and without errors than the web version ever was.
What kind of machine do you have? Are you running the game with too many 'advanced settings' on?

-Pieter

hey xform, do you ever think of releasing br and br2 as standalone games?

Maybe one day, who knows! There are some other projects that require our attention first!

WORST HELICOPTER CONTROL GAME

Hi! It is limited to the keyboard and thus you would need a little time to get used to. What do you think could be changed?

haha my mistake. sorry. i don't know to how to brake

Dear Xform,

Please fix the One Way Ticket and Back to Mount Doom script errors and the bug the docks, that the car fall the water.

(+1)

When are you experiencing these errors? before the challenge or during the challenge?
If you want it might be easier to mail us at support @ xformgames.com

When pick up the flame burst, or drop caltrops the end, script error. If I click No button, the game has exit. It shows the bug when it during the challenge.

(+1)

Strange, we haven't heard of any errors there before. Can you give us some more information on when exactly these errors occur, what are you doing at that moment? Is it right at the beginning of a mission?

Beginning of the mission right. These errors they will occur, if pick up a flame burst. And it displays that Script error. Continue? If clicking No button, the game was crash.

(+1)

Thanks - I
will give it a spin and see what happens...

i have got the problem that if i switch too much between challenges, vehicles and maps sometimws the challengea dont work correctly and i get script errors while racing once some ai starts shooting or anything else. I had this problem especially in the challenge "Outbreak"

I love this game. I complete 36 tickets, but i can't complete the Big Rock special missions. Why?

(+1)

Can you give us a bit more information? What is going on exactly?
If you want it might be easier to mail us at support @ xformgames.com

My job is to destroy 3 tanks. But I just managed to do it. I can not do the job! How to get the free camera?

(+1)

this is my child game.i played that game in 2011-2013.i played all the burnin rubber and its good.i want burnin rubber 4 pls

;c

(-1)

I've loved Super Man Or Monster and your Traffic Slam online games, what about them? Why is there only Burnin' Rubber? Why? Why you don't want to make anything about them? I really would like them to return. Sorry if i am too rude.

(+1)

Hi! You're not rude ;)
We would love to have the older games available again as well - but it takes a lot of work (thus time) to do so. 
And we're pretty busy - we are considering some things though :)

to be honest, traffic slam 3 is much more appreciated than the Rally Point Series. I think that ts3 would be a success too.

Is this playable on Mac?

No - but I was thinking about this the other day and it might just be possible.
No promises though - but I might give this a shot...

Cool i got this beast bought 1 week ago and i can say this brings aloot of memories.... Damn the fullscreen is VCool.

Cant wait for BRubber 6 :D

Thx Xform Luv ya and the BRubber community <33

Burnin' Rubber 6 is coming 2019.

oh the joys of playing this as a young child on my grandads slow as pc. was like 15 frames per second but I loved this game so much that didn't stop me. thanks for re realising this for purchase. plan to buy it soon and support the development of burnin rubber 6    :D

(1 edit)

Money? For a freeware game? You can not  be kidding right? Really? Why would you charge money for a freeware game? God dammit!

(+1)(-2)

We've grown enough to have our own credit card to buy these re-releases and Xform needs the money to make Burnin' Rubber 6.

But what if a country doesn't have credit cards? Hmm? HMM?

time to move countries then

Don't be ridiculous. If you have a pc and internet connection available to you, there is a really high chance that you have access to credit cards in your country.

Is there a demo so I can make a video?

Oh im gonna make a series on 3 and 4, bought both :)... so worth it

So... You Thought You Could Hide This? I Copied The Save File To My Desktop, Pressed New Game And BOOM... SCRIPT ERRORS FOR DAYS, After Loading I SawThe Whole Map On My Screen From The Corner Of The Map, Here It Is LOL: https://imgur.com/XWnl9wz

Edit: Time To Try The Other Maps XD

...I Remember.. I Was Like 5... Playing This Game... When I Got To The Jungle Map I Was The Happiest Ever

Thanks for these kind words. It was an awesome experience to make such an incredible webgame :)

(3 edits)

Thank YOU For Making This Game... Spent Like 2 Years Playing This Awesome Game

I Also Remember The Music While Playing  Was Always A Short Clip, Has Been Fixed

I Remember Asking My Mom How To Use The Guns.. AND THE STRUGGLE OF FINDING OUT HOW TO GET TO THE OTHER MAPS (I Couldnt Speak English Back Then)

Is There A Story To This Game? I Mean Police Cars With Machine Guns, S.W.A.T Vans With Miniguns And A Turret That Attacks On Sight? 

Please Make The Next Game A Free Roam Game Too (Make Sure I Can Run It On Integrated Graphics XD)

(+1)(-1)

Same...

I can unlock all maps, except the city and the docks. I found a easter egg. When i travel the Jungle, I stop the rocks with a secret, and I see people at the cliff who are standing. I complete the final boss mission. I figured out how to get an endless turbo. And sometimes random exploding cars. And when I launch, I'll take a full screen.

$4 USD for this and BR3 is a good sale

Burnin Rubber 2 Itch.io?

(+3)

There isn't really a point since you can still play it on websites

Where? I couldn't find any website where this game is available. Tell me if you know one, I really want to play it. :)

Im getting a weird audio bug in both br 3 and 4 where the audio for the guns and engines sometimes doesnt play or keeps echoing/looping after i stop shooting

Hello xform,

I just want to tell you thanks you to put it back publicly because I played it very much when I was little boy and I just loved this game so much. It was my birthday recently so maybe I will buy it ! :)

Add payment by phone, please

(+1)

is the tank in this version?

(+1)

If you have Burnin' Rubber 3 Standalone and gained the World Domination trophy you can unlock the tank by putting your BR3 savegame in the BR4 save folder. You can find your BR3 save game at C:\Users[YOURUSERNAME]\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Director 11\BurninRubber3\Prefs\XBR3Data.txt Copy and paste it to C:\Users[YOURUSERNAME]\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Director 11\BurninRubber4\Prefs Unfortunately we cannot automate this process. Start the game and claim your tank!

(1 edit)

Hello do you know were are the saves files stored? so I can transfer the saves from my laptop .

yes :)

It depends a bit on which Windows version you are but you should look into
C:\Users\[YOURUSERNAME]\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Director 11\BurninRubber4\Prefs
there is a file there called XBR4GOTY.txt

Thats your save file :)

-Pieter

Thank youu :)  this will help

HELLO! I can only pay by card ! pay pal I can't create me just 11 years ! I don't have a document number or a passport! how to pay? there are no scheta as in steam !

ЗДРАВСТВУЙТЕ! Я могу заплатить только карточкой! платный приятель, я не могу создать меня всего 11 лет! У меня нет номера документа или паспорта! как платить? нет scheta , как в паре!


(+1)

Somehow I never realised this before...

Were the Burnin Rubber games designed to be played with a 'qwerty' keyboard?

Because as a user of a 'qwertz' keyboard I only now noticed that all controlls (exept driving) are neatly placed in one row of keys... exept the primary weapon, which is still bound to z (between t and u).

At the same time y (next to x) is not being used for anything.

I never noticed this back years ago when I didn't care about drifting or looking back, but some wicked finger twisting is required to use all of the controlls with 'qwertz'.

Is there a workaround to bind my guns to'y' or if not, could you implement such a thing easily? (something like a setting "primary fire y/z" in the launcher)

The only other thing I could think of is changing the keyboard input settings to my entire PC everytime I play.

This is almost just a cosmetic thing, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

You're the Professor, aren't you?

I'm sure you can figure out how to fix it.
