    Here's a list compiled from questions we see a lot. There may be more on the wiki page: http://wiki.beamng.com/BeamNG_FAQ

    Will the techdemo be updated?


    The techdemo will not be updated for the immediate future. If you want to get the latest updates, [https://sites.fastspring.com/beamng/instant/alpha please consider buying into the alpha here to receive updates.


    What about MAC support?


    Currently we only focus on the PC platform and we cannot say if or when we will support MAC


    What button do I press to do 'x'?


    Press F1 in the game.


    Otherwise, a full list of controls can be found on the Wiki: http://wiki.beamng.com/Playing


    How do I repair my car? How do I respawn my car? How do I change my car?


    A full list of controls can be found on the Wiki: http://wiki.beamng.com/Playing


    My game is slow and laggy


    If your graphics card is not powerful enough to run the game you can try the following to improve your frame rate.
    * Disable SSAO (ambient occlusion) ~50% FPS gain
    * Lower lighting quality (shadows) up to ~25% FPS gain
    * Last resort - "lowest" lighting quality (shadows) up to ~100% FPS gain
    For more information visit this thread: http://www.beamng.com/threads/1546-Graphical-Performance-tweaks


    My Graphics settings won't save.


    Make sure that you exit the game properly. Settings won't save correctly if the game is forced to close by a crash. Open the game and set your graphics settings then exit the game manually and they should save.


    How do I spawn an AI driver?


    AI drivers are not implemented yet. Purchase Alpha access to get free updates.


    How do I change the color of my vehicles?


    There is a thread explaining a hack/mod to do this but there is no official option for that yet.
    http://www.beamng.com/threads/1205-...hicle-Colors-yet?p=18732&viewfull=1#post18732 Is it Possible To Change Vehicle Colors yet?


    How do I enable force feedback for 'x' racing wheel?


    Force Feedback has not been implemented yet but It is planned.


    I have Nvidia Optimus and BeamNG shows the Intel graphics?


    The Intel graphics are shown in the options menu but the game is actually using the Nvidia graphics. To check go to the Nvidia control panel and press desktop, then press "Display GPU Activity Icon in Notification Area", now check the icon in your tray and it should show that BeamNG is using the Nvidia graphics. If not make sure you have set up BeamNG to use the Nvidia graphics in the control panel.


    How do I spawn another vehicle that I can crash into?


    A tutorial on how to accomplish this can be found on the wiki: http://wiki.beamng.com/Spawning_Vehicles


    How to delete the added car?


    Open Editor (F11), in the "Scene Tree" enable "Scene" tab, find the desired car, press right mouse button and choose "Delete".


    BeamNG is running slowly even though I have set it to the lowest settings?


    Be sure to disable SSAO in the Post FX settings.


    How do I change the time of day?


    There is a tutorial for this on the wiki: http://wiki.beamng.com/Changing_Time_of_Day


    I've edited a game file and I'd like to revert it back?


    Run the BeamNG DRIVE Update (Force update) and it will reset any modified files.


    The email I used to purchase BeamNG is different than the email on my forum account. How do I upgrade?


    Please refer to the following thread on how to resolve this issue and get your forum account upgraded: http://www.beamng.com/threads/1471-Email-change-Problems-on-Account-upgrade Email change Problems on Account upgrade


    How do I install content I've downloaded from the forum?


    Please refer to the following wiki page to learn how to install this content: http://wiki.beamng.com/Installing_Content


    How do I change the keyboard mapping?


    The keyboard input map is located along with the other input maps at C:\Users\'''YOURUSERNAME'''\AppData\Local\BeamNG\BeamNG-DRIVE-0.3\scripts\client\inputmaps\keyboard.inputmap


    Open that file in notepad and edit it to your choosing.


    'x' Textures are broken, what do I do?


    You can try restarting the game. If that doesn't work, run the BeamNG DRIVE Updater, usually that will fix any texture issues, especially with tread-mark texture issues. Broken textures will be fixed eventually. Expect it from an Alpha Version.


    Be sure to check the wiki page: http://wiki.beamng.com/BeamNG_FAQ for more info. if you cant find the question here feel free to ask.

    You should add a FAQ for people with Nvidia Optimus as well :)

    I don't have a laptop and have no experience with Optimus but if you do you could absolutely make one.

    I've never done anything beyond adding some text to an existing wiki post but I'll tinker around with it and see what I come up with.

    To add on to the spawning vehicles question - when creating a vehicle in the editor, can you place it with some initial velocity, or do you have to switch between two cars to get them both moving?

    I added the Q/A from this thread on there. But the formatting kinda does weird stuff with the first question. Can you look into it?

    I was working on doing that but since you've already done it I guess I'll stop.

    I am not t-dev but I'll give it a go. If DRIVE gets fairly popular I believe that they will attempt for it, but there are complications. Torque 3D doesn't support Mac, and that is their source engine. I believe they can and will overcome that, but it might take a while.

    Can I register my key on multiple computers? If so, are there any restrictions? What happens if it's found out I shared my key?

    Yes I know the answer to the last one, (key is suspended or banned) but asking it here for the sake of a complete FAQ entry.
