This guide is now located at http://learn.re-volt.io/playing-the-game/online.

There are two main options for joining these and other races.

Many races are being announced on the Discord server in the #racing channel. If someone announced a race, copy their IP (CTRL C) and start up the game.

If the host didn't post any IP, you can always ask for it.

Then select Start Race and Multi-Player. Select Join Game. You will be prompted for the Host Computer. Now paste the IP addres (CTRL V) and press enter.

You will then join the lobby.

Note: RV House is prone to crashing fairly often. It's often easier to visit our Discord server and ask for the host's IP.

  1. First, you will have to create an account on revoltzone.net/register.
  2. Then install RV House from rv12.revoltzone.net (the download links are below the left sidebar) and log in with your new account. Note: There will be a message saying that Re-Volt could not be found. Ignore this message and dismiss it (Why?).
  3. Then click on Edit -> Settings and then the Advanced tab. Under RVGL, put the path to your RVGL installation (the folder, not the .exe, e.g. C:\Users\TomAtoe\RVGL). Confirm by clicking on OK.

You will then be able to join any rooms hosted in RV house. Click the refresh button from time to time to see if there are new rooms available.
