Everything you need to know about DD&F8
« Thread started on: Nov 10th, 2011, 1:15pm »

Demolition Derby and Figure 8 Racing is a PC game released in 2001. It works on your home computer in singles play against computer cars and it can work online and u play against others who have the game.

The reason we can play online today is the result of 3 months of hardwork and troubleshooting that started in January of 2010 by a bunch of guys with no technical or computer experience.

I want to thank those who helped get this thing going again and put up with night after night and month after month of testing.... "anything happening on your end? nope nothing, its not working"

You can play this game online today because of these people 572BB, CaddyCrasher, Showstopper, Lexcorp, DerbyFun, Strassman, Cheater22x and finally THE BOSS , who actually put the information I gathered together and made the first connection between him and another friend. Now today, we have the resources to help people connect, more people to help others to connect. More information on Firewalls and Routers. And more users of Vista and Windows 7.

No one had been able to connect online for over 3 years. In some cases many many more years then that because Microsoft had locked out there own program that the game relied upon. This game was DEAD in the water. Its old, its flakey, and it didn't work online. But it is also a HELL OF ALOT OF FUN to play and is the BEST derby game out there and anyone who thinks different can kiss my ass. No other game is 10 years old and still played like this one is. Bugs and all. And there is a revival happening and while it can be played online, remember, there are MANY pitfalls and crashes to put up with. But we do because when this game works, its a pile of fun.
