This is a great game but definitely challenging due to the length of the stages which can take up to 20 minutes – much longer than what I’m used to in similar games. And in contrast to other racing games there are hardly any passages where you can relax since even the straights have little bends and bumps the whole time so you need to keep your concentration at 100% the whole time. It’s not easy but all the more rewarding when you manage to finish first.
Anyway, I had some trouble running this game properly but I did find solutions for all my problems so I decided to share them here:
1. The Audio gets massively out of sync - even stops completely at times - when you run RAL.EXE on a System with multiple CPU-cores. Of course you can set the affinity in the Task Manager, but you’d have to do this every time. One of the possible permanent solutions is to:
download this freeware tool https://www.activeplus.com/products/runfirst
make a shortcut on your desktop
Right Click - Properties - Shortcut
and in the “Target” Field you add the Path to your game Executable
In my case for example it looks like this: "C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\My Documents\Downloads\Games\RunFirst\RunFirst.exe" "C:\rc\rally championship\RAL.EXE"
Now you can start the game using the runfirst shortcut on your desktop and the sound should be fine.
2. It is possible to use the Trigger axes of your Controller (i.e. Xbox 360 Controller for Windows) for accelerating and braking, but there are a few things you have to do:
Install Patch 5.3 (aka Patch 6)
In the Game go to: Options - Player Details - Player 1 Details - Setup Controller
Set “Axis Mode” to “2 Axis Wheel+Pedal”
in the “Program Controller” menu, set up “accelerate” as left stick up and “brake” as left stick down
Now exit the game and go into your game installation folder, open the folder “VAR” and create a new text document (Right Click – New - Text Doxument).
Open it and add the line: alt2axcode=0x0002
Close the document and rename it to RAL.CFG (IMPORTANT!: not to RAL.CFG.TXT)
Ignore the Warning ;)
Now the controls should be the way you’re accustomed to from other games (meaning right trigger to accelerate and left trigger to brake)
fyi: You can also find documentation on this in UPDATE.TXT which came with the patch. There’s also a document called PHYSICS.TXT which gives you other lines of code you can add to RAL.CFG to mess around with the Physics of the game (gravity etc.), it’s great fun, try it out!
3. In the Arcade Mode, Arcade 2 Stage 2 the game keeps crashing. In this Youtube Video:
user “Milan Lemi23” fixed the problem by limiting the framerate to 30fps. For this he used the tool RivaTunerStatiscisServer which comes as a companion software with the installation of “MSI Afterburner”, which I suppose most of you are familiar with. Worked for me too. I’m sure there are plenty of other programs that can accomplish the same task.
I hope this guide is of help to some of you. Enjoy the game!

Physics weren't very good in this game, very arcade-ish. But the stages were AMAZING!!! They were narrow, beautiful, fun, and LONG! It had good pace notes. It had night stages. It was awesome!
