Support / FAQ

Q: What if I experience problems with the game?
A: Make sure you have the latest version which is available from the download button here on our site. If you still have problems running the game you can send an email to our support email address. The news section will list when new versions of Driving Speed Pro have been released.

Q: How can I improve the frame rate?
A: If you experience a slow frame rate you can try these things. Use a lower resolution when starting the game. You can also go to the Options -> Graphics and disable some features such as Post Effects and 3D Crowds. You can also set the Shader Quality to Low if there are still performance issues.

Q: Will there be new cars, tracks and features added to this game?
A: Yes we are committed to adding new content and features over time and releasing them here. All existing customers are able to upgrade to any new versions that are released. While we do our best to add new content to this game we make no solid promises of how much and how often we will be adding new content. It also depends on customer support of this product. Without legitimate customers we will not be able to support the development costs of new content.

Q: How can I update to the latest version?
A: If you already have the game installed you can upgrade to the latest version by installing the new version over the top of the existing install location. You can also uninstall before re-installing but you will lose your save games, game progress, and if you have the full version installed you will need to re-activate the new version with your license key. If you require more license key activations then send an email to the support email address.

Q: What if I lose my license key?
A: If you purchased the game then send an email to the support email address, include the email address you used to purchase or your full name and we will re-send your license key. Please dont pretend you lost your key if you didn't purchase the game, no license keys will be given out to sales we cannot verify.

Q: What if I need to reinstall or upgrade and run out of license key activations?
A: Send an email to the support email address and we will make sure you are accommodated with new activations.

Q: I get the error "HttpSendRequest failed" when trying to register the game?
A: Open the Control Panel in Windows, select Internet Options or Network and Internet -> Internet Options on Windows 7. Click the Advanced tab and go down to Security, make sure "Check for server certificate revocation" is unchecked then re-try registering the game, you can re-enable the setting again once the game is registered.

Q: How do I play online?
A: Versions older than 1.5 had no support for joining WAN games which has recently been fixed. Although online play is not fully tested or supported. We have no online matchmaking service with this game. If you wish to have friends join a game you are hosting you will need to know what your IP address is so that others can join. You will also need to setup port forwarding on your modem / router to allow connections to be forwarded to your computer. Your modem / router manual should have information on how to do this. The port number you host the game with will need to be setup with your modem software.

Q: Does this game support mods?
A: Unfortunately at this stage we don't support user mods to this game and have no short term plans to enable such a feature as it will be a very time consuming and costly feature to implement. This does not mean that it will be out of the question to add some support for this some time in the future.

Q: How do I enable Antialiasing in the graphics?
A: Antialiasing is supported in version 1.5 and later and can be enabled by switching it on in your graphics card driver settings.

Q: Are you looking for artists, musicians or programmers to help with developing new content and features?
A: We are not looking for new collaborators at this time.


Extras / Tools

Skin File Tool

You can use this tool if you are creating custom skins for the cars and wish to create the needed skin.txt.enc file with skin information such as a unique skin name and color. Note that if you are on Vista or Windows 7 you may not be able to save files under Program Files directly, this is due to the security on those operating systems. If needed save the file elsewhere on your hard drive and copy manually using explorer.

Click Here to download the tool. (file size 244kb) (comes without installer)


To create a new skin for a car you create a new folder under the car's directory in data\cars\carfolder. Any texture .dds files that you place in this folder will override the ones in the car's base folder. Use a picture editing program such as Photoshop with the NVIDIA dds plugin to edit the textures. Use the skin tool above to create a new skin.txt.enc file to place in the folder.
