The developer of KartKraft has added more features to their early-access product. A long-term favourite of the sim racing community, triple-screens, will add what would be considered an essential component for racing game fans.
For those that are single-screen players, triple-screens for many people help with the feeling of speed in a simulation whilst also giving you some peripheral vision about the cars or karts around you. Virtual Reality (VR) is already supported in the game and offers maximum immersion to those that can comfortably enjoy it. To configure triple-screens, you’ll need to head to the camera menu in game.
Along with the triple screen support, KartKraft has also bought the following additionals updates:
- New input system – a calibration wizard will help you set up your wheel/pedals
- Test drive – a menu item added in preparation of an “upcoming track modding tool”
- HUD – elements can now be moved around the screen using your mouse (not available in VR)
- FreeTrack support – open-source head tracking (configured in the “camera” settings menu
- Audio – slider added to change your opponent’s sound
- FFB default strength – increased to match real-life and help users catch slides on non-direct-drive steering wheels
- Timing fixes
- Crash fixes
- Dynamic sky optimisation
