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.
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.

Hello Xform! Today I bought your game because its's nostalgia for me.
I was very happy, because the game was postponed almost unchanged. BUT, unfortunately, the optimization of the game also remained the same. And sometimes FPS drops to about 10 frames per second. Although I have a relatively powerful hardware: 1050 ti and amd processor. I believe that the problem is that the game cannot allocate the proper amount of RAM for itself. Can you help me with this problem? my operating system is windows 7.
Hi! Sorry to hear that it isnt performing well.
Can you mail us your computer specifications? We'll try to take it from there!
[EDIT:] Saw your email just now
I just bought BR4, and i am so happy with it, it gives me a lot of memories, my favourite game, i will buy BR3 soon to unlock tank and bring back memories from BR3 too :D
Btw, i have a bug, if i am playing BR4 i cant hide my taskbar, even tho i press alt+enter
xforms can you please make all of the old racing car games from shockwave? like i need those games like Drift 'n' Burn 365, Rumble Town Racing 2, metal mayhem, etc..
There is any chance to make the Bburnin' Rubber 3 and 4 on mobile device's?
Thank you for your message. Unfortunately, both BR3 and BR4 were made in an engine that does not port to mobile devices. So the answer is no :(. We won't rule out that there will BR games on mobile in the future though. Who knows.
Thank you for putting this up, this game was my childhood!
Can i run it?
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4300 @2 2.10 GHZ 2.10 GHZ
4,00 GB RAM
Windows 10 Pro
Are there anyways we can mod this after we download it to make it more fun?
Hi! Please join our Discord channel. There is no 'official' mod support but there are ways around that. There are plenty of people who can help you with that . All vehicles textures are external as well so those can changed in a jiffy.
Le question: Why Crash n'Burn is gone from app strore?
We have got no message that it has been removed - I can also still see it live.
Do you have any more information?
[EDIT] It seems the app needs to be updated to run on iOS 11 as well, Sorry for the inconvenience.
We're currently in the progress of updating older apps - so we shall tackle this one as soon as possible as well.
I'm really sorry, I was about to buy Burnin' Rubber 5 HD on Steam, but I have found a way to play original on web browser, so I used my money on Burnin' Rubber 4 and waiting for my dad to buy Burnin' Rubber 3 with my money again... (My dad buys it but I pay him)
By the way thanks for making my life better (:
Burnin' Rubber was my favourite when I was like 7 yrs but had no pc so I had to just..... Ask my brother... If he said no, I would just cry and ask more...
I was so sad, that Shockwave decided to shutdown it, when I had a laptop ):
If you somehow delete Burnin' Rubber 5 on web browser, I will think about buying Burnin' Rubber 5 HD, but I can't always buy a game after I bought a game like 1 month ago...
I have a question, can i pay with paysafecard? pls reply
Itch.io determines the payment methods for your region. Normally that would mean Paypal or Stripe.
I wanted to play this cool and wonderful game...remember how I used to play...and then the game paid!please make the game a free price you will not!I wanted to play and here such a annoyance...pay need to...what the hell is this world?do you want to play and here is...
I remember playing this game back in the time. I really like that theres free roaming now! Keep it up Xformgames!
so i was hoping if someone can give me a save file with the almighty petite xs
in tje boat race there's a bug no matter which position i am it will still display that i'm 4th
thanks in advance
What version are you running? We did fix the position issue for the boats - if you are on the latest version there might be something else going on?
I have already bought the game, how can I download on another computer?
Just log in with your account and download the file again - you can also use the Itch app!
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.
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!
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.
same goes for me ;c i really want to pay with paysafecard but idk if that works cuz i cant find the pay methods and i searched at steam for the game and i was so sad when i saw that only the part 5 is available :(
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
i am suspicious if this game is gonna get any updates soon to be honest
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.
But do u agree with the realistic explosions thing?
btw cant wait for police pursuit >:)
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?
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

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
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 :(.
this game has really many bug.
dissapointed with this problem..
ui turned to white when i go other world or go in to garage
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?
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?
Please fix the One Way Ticket and Back to Mount Doom script errors and the bug the docks, that the car fall the water.
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.
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.
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?
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
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
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.
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 :)
Is this playable on Mac?
