Friday Night Derby Report. I don't usually try to host on a Friday, but .. It was worth it. 10 Quick heats banged off with ManBearPig making his first heat appearances and successfully getting onto the Grid since winning the DerbyKing Tournament May23rd. ManBearPit Showed up in Heat #7 with a re enforced compact to take on my Hearse and it was nimbleness ability and skill defeating Slow, Big and Heavy. Obviously getting ready for the real deal. Back in the Wagon ManBeaRPIG took a loss to madmax as madmax used Sandbagging as an attempt to cruise to victory while ManBeaRPig took the MADDOG route and destroyed the field and nearly got madmax with a last 2nd rush. Clinton arrived first with 4 dominant wins, while Car maker Strassman made his first online Derby appearance since... 2004!!! No wins on the night, His 5 heats were all aggressive and with smaller 2dr stock gamecars. A fast and entertaining derby that creates a fun style of play for everyone. Custom Derbies were run with some Strassman cars and his UFC creation defeated his SPARTAN300 Newport. A few computer crashes soon followed and it was time to move on. Later, Derby111 got in a last minute heat and took the win.

An Great Night of Derbies. Fast and Fun.

NOtes for Playing Demolition Derby and F8 Online
Computer Crash Prevention!!!

The game will crash even if everything is done right. But you can limit the amount of downtime with some preventative measures.
Listen to the host!

1) THE GAME ALWAYS CRASHES MORE WHEN A NEW INEXPERIENCED PLAYER ARRIVES.... because most have not read this.

A) Make sure you have background programs turned off, open windows closed, MSN messenger, yahoo etc, facebook anything including music downloading software turned off. A CLEAN SYSTEM WITH JUST THE GAME Running is the safest. There will be fewer crashes and players will not drift off the screen when someone tries to MSN them or a program searches there computer for music etc. GOOGLE CHROME WILL CRASH THIS GAME!!!

A1) Make certain Virus protection programs are turned OFF or set to GAMING MODE. AGV, MacFee and Norton all interefere with this game and make cars float off the screen or freeze them.

B) End all texting before starting a race. We love to chatter. The host needs to clear the screen and make sure no incoming texts interfere with the start. When you see a countdown 30, 20, 15, 10 stop texting.

C) If a player connects and it FREEZES your computer, don't panic. That player has a partial connection and it will drop automatically. THe player needs to exit the game and reload it. Sometimes they have to turn off background programs or reboot. If the player has logged back in and you see TWO of them. One is FAKE, notify the host you see TWO of the same player .

D) DO NOT Enter the PReGrid and then leave if avoidable. Do not jump in and out of the pregrid as this tricks the host computer and it will crash. If a player leaves, the host will clear the screen by Backing out and returning and ALL players will have to relog back into the pregrid.


E) IF ANY PLAYER sees -1 on their screen beside another players name, then the player who sees the -1 WILL CRASH! The Player you see a -1 beside MUST change their car, or the Game will Crash.

EVERYONE PLAYING WITH CUSTOM CARS MUST HAVE THE SAME CARS IN THEIR SELECTION WINDOWS and THEY MUST WORK. If a player has 63 Ford and it crashes in singles mode, the moment someone grabs a 63 Ford in Multiplayer that player will crash. Players who make/modify their own Cars will cause the game to Crash. YOu car must be accepted by the Host and distributed to all players.



H) Countdown!!! IF the countdown hits 70 or (WAITING FOR HOST lasts longer then 1 minute... I can guarrantee the connection isn't going to recover. Hit ESCAPE or exit and restart. If the countdown won't stop and you hit escape and it restarts the count... YOUR TOAST!!! A restart/computer reboot is in the works. This is worse then a computer crash to the desktop because it often requires a total reboot.



I) When you know and trust other players and the host, thing go smoothly. You will notice that the game will A) Crash, B)Freeze, more often whenever new players are involved.

J) Make time to train new players to your system. Once they know your routine things go smoothly.


K) Respectful players let the host know when its their last derby. That helps if there is a computer crash and you reboot and they don't come back.

L) If there is a problem when a derby is running players can signal by ... A) Leaving the game. If more then one leaves, you probably have a problem. If you are out of the derby and there is a problem, the drivers tend to park or bump the host car . Don't hit the pause button. Don't jump to conclusions if someone is hitting the PAUSE button. The pause key is near the Cheat to restart keys and is often hit by mistake.


M) Remember, Players Can't connect when a Derby is in session.

N) Let the host know you are trying to connect to a derby.

O) If you contact the host, expect a reply in 10 minutes, about the length of time it takes to run a derby. Hosts will hold open the grid if they know you are trying to connect.

P) If you have never connected online before, its best to try to connect whenever a host is offering testing vs during a busy derby session with lots of players.

Q) SELF MODDED CARS!!! While it shouldn't be the case, it has proven VERY problematic that those who take a Custom Car and change the Paint or Bodyshape, cause a crash to other players or self online. Now with the number of players modding their cars, I suggest you rename them and keep them for personal use. Do not try to use these modded cars during multiplayer derbies, and have your cars tested with the HOST before you make a bad guess. The same goes for those who are changing stock game cars. DO NOT DO THIS!!! The host wants to host Derbies not Computer Crashes. LEAVE THE STOCK GAME CARS ALONE if you are playing online. You are not funny, cute, smart or cheating when you surprise people with your modded Stock Game car. You are simply causing another variable for a computer crash that we don't need.
Leave Class files alone unless you have DIRECT permission from your host. Leave Custom Cars and Custom Class files Alone unlessyou have DIRECT permisson from your host.

These are ONLINE gaming tips. This is not about what you do with your cars for your single player derbies.

WIth the number of people who are playing this game online growing very rapidly and more cool modders and car builders coming back or learning, it is important that the players understand that ALL CARS must be available and the same for this game to work properly. The more you mod... it crashes.. and if that continues. No one will want to play.




Finally, If you want to kill the fun of playing this game. Cheat, Lie or create unbeatable car like the DentEn4cer. Modify stock game cars and upset the balance of play.

This game works. Its Fun. I have found that the game is incredibly fun, but only as fun as the players involved. I have hosted over 1000 Derbies (HURRAY) and I want to host 10000 more.

A player who Keeps up the nonsense will not only not be wanted around, the Host will pack it in if things aren't fun and the vibe isn't good.

Most of what the host is doing is trying NOT to have the Game Crash, and trying TO make sure everyone has a great time.

Its Been A blast so far.

I will add to this work in progress....Hope this helps for now.
