Welcome to BEWARE demo v.000
here's some useful information to get you started:
I would recommend first setting the resolution to 1280x720 and if you get good enough fps, set it higher. You can display an fps counter by holding the "L" key.
"Reset" in the start menu will reset your progress back to the beginning.
The game has stealth elements, you can avoid being detected. There is also one "mission" for you to discover. Use logical thinking and intuition, just as you would do in real life - there is no hand-holding in this game.
While in-game, you can access a pause menu by pressing the "esc" key. It will only work if your car is stopped. The pause menu offers these settings:
1) "Front lock": higher numbers mean stronger steering assistance. You may want to start with the value 43 and reduce that number once you get comfortable with the driving.
2) "Rear stiffness" is the strength of the rear anti-roll bar. The higher the number the more the car will tend to over-steer. Default is 10000 and will make the car's handling more balanced. Still, consider you will be driving a rear-engined RWD car with 59% of the weight on the rear wheels.
3) "Shadow Distance": 0: no real-time shadows. 1: shadow distance 70m. 2: shadow distance 150m.Setting shadows to 0 considerably improves performance.
4) "VSync" off/on
5) "Music volume" ...because the music will get annoying sooner or later. More tracks and possibly an adaptive modular system will follow in later updates.
6) "Quit toStart Menu"
There is a known physics bug: when you hit a steep slope of the terrain with one of the front wheels, it can happen thet the car will respond by flipping/bouncing off unrealistically.
Finally, if you get stuck in mud, try gently tapping the accelerator to keep rpm close to 2000, this will help getting back traction without the wheels spinning.
Have a nice trip :)
