See the ReleaseNotes.txt for some more details.
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.

Yes - I am afraid that is a limitation of the Shockwave engine :(
We are running into similar issues on our machines as well when running the game with all settings on and in a 'high' resolution. Sorry :(
When will you bring Burnin' Rubber 4 and Hydro Storm 2 to Steam?
I'm having issues installing. I unzip the folder and verify everything but I keep getting a cannot create files error message. It's not a storage issue on my end
That is odd - did you try installing it through the Itch App? It is the preferred way as it handles updates easily as well.
Game crashes when i try to switch cars and then click select. Also cant do ticket races as the game force closes by its self when i click select
is there any sort of fix for this issue xformgames?
I am afraid it could be any number of things tbh. I would need some more information. Can you email us your computer specifications? either through info or support @ xformgames.
AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Gigabyte RTX 2060
16GB RAM (2X8GB) = 3000mhz
Running Windows 11
That should be more then enough. Mayb e it is the resolution and/or settings?
Do you have any of the advanced settings on? While your system should be able to have them on maybe there is some sort of conflict? The advanced settings as well as high resolutions aren't very well supported due to engine limitations. So these are a bit experimental.
Xformgames I bought the game but I didn't receive the file to download the game, can you explain this?
the zip version is suoer laggy... why?
Even though I have both 3 and 4, and have beaten 3 I didnt get the Tank, how do I go about doing that
@XformGames Can you publish this game on Steam?
do i need to reinstall this to get the update?
My advice is to use the Itch app as this will manage updates and latest versions much easier. Your save file should be fine.
The original installer is still included with the latest version but does not have the update. We kept that in there for save keeping.
The amount of nostalgia...
Can You Make For Free Please
Boujour j'habite en belgique j'aimerais savoir comme je doit faire pour acheter un jeu sur le site itchio car j'aimerais acheter burnin rubber 4 5 3 2 mais je sais pas comment on fait
I pray that Burnin' Rubber 6 will release one day 🔥
can i have a refund please
This game is a certified hood classic.
Also Burnin' Rubber 6 when? ;)
my pc is good, but this game does not run smoothly at 60fps why? same with BR3, only BR5 HD and Rally Point games runs well
The older Director games are frame limited to 30.
We're sorry but it is/was a technical limitation by design, because of Director.
Burnin'Rubber 5HD and the Rally Points were rebuild in Unity where we could more easily make sure you could reach proper fps.
But Xform, Burnin’ Rubber 3 runs faster in my Laptop. I’ve good specs laptop with 4GB of RAM, but Burnin’ Rubber 5 HD struggles to run on my laptop, but as for Burnin’ Rubber 3, it runs pretty smooth. The laptop is Lenovo Ideapad S145 with AMD Radeon A6.I’ve to use Waterfox Classic just to play Rally Point 6 in peace without any lag, input lag or stutters. ON the other hand, if I play Burnin’ Rubber 3 it runs pretty smooth than Burnin’ Rubber 5 HD.
hey xform, when will traffic slam 3, lose the heat 3, AND downtown drift be ported over to pc???
i know that seems absurd 2 ask but what are the specs of the game?
Anything 5/6 years old should be able to run the game. Do read the part about System Requirements and Important on the main page as it will give you some pointers as wel
Ah, the memories. Great game
I want my childhood back :(
(;-;) Me too! Those good parts of my times of my life were the greatest in my life. Where did those times are gone? ):
problems i have with it are when i shoot alot of rockets at a small window of time the game sends a error that keeps popping up when i try to close it and sometimes flame decals appear big red and white rectangles
will this game work on linux with Wine?
Please add 4k fullscreen 1080p in a window is so hard to see if you want to email me please do email@example.com
Please add controller support.
Would love to - but the game and source code is getting so old that it is too hard to maintain :(
The good times ever since i played this game for the first time. I like the rotation of cars while turning instead of camera turning like in Burnin’ Rubber 5 HD. Burnin’ Rubber 2 was great becuz the cars turned.Not the camera. I finally got to see day & night time in this game.Theres still 1 problem in this game. Every time ur first in the Boat Race it always shows 4 position. I’ll appreciate if this problem got fixed. It’s difficult to get petite xs bcuz of that problem. The fav car in this game is Phaser GTI.
the memories of going to the computer lab in elementary school and playing burning rubber on shockwave are still with me and now that i can buy this i might as well
i had bought this on my last laptop awhile ago but it had died on me. i had recently bought a new laptop how do i get it again without buying it?
theres any way to get secret cars without playing burnin rubber 3?.
But 1 don’t have any Facebook account, neither twitch nor Discord Account!
hae man, can you send by email, or create a free guest discord (dont need email and password), i know i'm being annoying but you are flooding a lil the comment session!.
Hey Xform, If you can’t all new contents to the old games, at least can you add old contents to the New Game?
Just like you’ve added some cars in Burnin’ Rubber 5 HD which were from Previous Versions of Burnin’ Rubber Like Lightning GTR, Myoko Giant, Vulcan M6,Phaser GTI, GTBLAZE and DX Turbo?
Thanks for your ideas, but it's kind of filling up the comments section ;) Please gather them all up and send them through mail or Facebook. Thanks!
I Loved Your Games I’m from India BTW! I always played your games when I was 4-8 years but whenever I played Traffic Slam 2, It lags too much!
I hope you’ll reach $10000 goal so you’ll be able to hire some new workers! 🥰
Thanks for creating such awesome games “I’ve never played Super Man OR Monster”
but I’ve played some of your games like: “Burnin’ Rubber, Traffic Slam 1 and 3, Downtown Drift, and Rally Point Series!”
Thanks for Creating Such Awesome games I’ve bought Burnin’ Rubber 3 on My Desktop and Burnin’ Rubber 5 HD on My Laptop. I have to download Burnin’ Rubber 5 HD on My AMD A6 Laptop because My Desktop had 32-bit Windows 7 with Intel Core 2 Duo. It needed 64-bit.
I had 64-bit Windows 7 but my Windows got corrupted and when I checked my newly installed Windows 7, it had 32-bit!
I hope you’ll create such games again!
Sorry for too many comments.
Because I don’t have a Discord Server Account! So I can’t share my ideas with you there! One day I will have my own Discord Server Account. And I will share my ideas with you!
Hi! We won't be adding any new content to the old games. It's almost impossible to do even if we'd want to. Sorry!
Hey Xform, can you add some more cars in this game?
Hey Xform, can you add Downtown Drift to itch io for free? every time I start it in IE or Chrome, it always says “Unity Web Player, Install Now” since I already have it. And Also add cars like Giant, Myoko Giant, Lightning GTR, Vulcan, Vulcan ZB, Vulcan M6, and Phaser GTI!
I am afraid that you can’t-
If you’re reading this I will appreciate it.
Hi! Downtown Drift: I don't think so. Sorry. Please join our Discord instead of posting here ;)
Hey Xform, can you please add more camera view like in Trailer? I would appreciate it if you Update Burnin’ Rubber 4!
Hey Xform, can you please update game Burnin’ Rubber 1 Like car Textures for Burnin’ Rubber 5 as it doesn’t look good for me!
Hey Xform, can you create Burnin' Rubber 6 with Same Car Textures as in Burnin' Rubber 1?
I Also Want Cars and Their Paintjobs from:
Burnin' Rubber 1, Burnin' Rubber 2, Burnin Rubber 3, Burnin' Rubber 4, Burnin' Rubber Crash n' Burn, Burnin' Rubber 5-5 HD Burnin' Rubber Shift,
Redline Rumble Revolution,
Downtown Drift ,Rally Point 1-6!
Here's the video of Burnin' Rubber:
And Please, Create Car Textures from This Game Only.
Add Multiplayer Support Too!
I am asking because i loved Burnin' Rubber 1 and Now' its Discontinued!🙁
And i Also loved about how cars were reflecting.
Thanks for your ideas! When we start developing BR6, we'll definitely make sure to include old paintjobs as well :)
hey xform, ı can't understand but when ı use petite or a vehicle like that and go to garage after playing sometime this approaches:
''properety not found '
ı say yes but it come s whenever ı press yes and no? it just closes the game
and when ı finish a race game says object instead of properety....
pls help cause it's ur game
ı used to play this on my childhood but it needed windows 7
so when ı saw my dad didn't got windows 7 ı freaked out and sometime later made the pc crash
and he used to format it
and now thank you for publising it again
ı wasn't looking at hockwave games for years than ı got a message
'' shockwave is dead''
then ı remembered my childhood and ı cried a lot
and in 2018 u made downloadable version
now ım so happy thank you xform
Sorry to hear that you're experiencing this crash. I don't think it's possible for us to come up with a solution with the information you're providing. It's always wise to uninstall the game and install it again properly and hope the issue resolves itself. You might also want to try locating your savegame and deleting (moving it temporarily) and see if this helps. Maybe it was corrupted. And of course make sure your computer / operating system meets the system requirements too. Unfortunately, it's a pretty old game and these sorts of problems are likely to appear on a game port like this.
ı tried to copy paste savegame's numbers (ı opened it with notepad) to another new savegame and it worked now my game works properely to get sure ı played but ı was suspicious about something and then ı installed shockwave's unknown pc version (not web) and it worked so properely now ı can play without errors! ^_^
