Old thread, but I'm new here, and trying to do some catch up with the forums, news, and history of XMR.
I've seen a few comments about renaming the game, and I tend to agree as well.
First, for anyone having used Linux, X often refers to an X application of any kind. So my first thought when I heard about it, oh a linux racer? But it haves nothing to do with it.
For someone new like me, I can't figure exactly what the X stands for. It's not clear.
As for the suggestions given, I don't want to offend anyone, but hmmm, most might be even worse
I don't claim I'm better either tho.
Motor Racing is already better imo. But it needs something more catchy. Motor Racing would actually be good if the game still supported the modes it seems to have let go over time. The offroad, etc...
Motor Racing would suggest racing with anything that has a motor? Or something like this. So if it had karts, dirt cars, nascar, f1, different formulas, and so on...
Live for Speed was actually really good, and had a good acronym as well, but it's long taken
But I believe losing the X would be a good thing, it would sound better, and pronounced a lot faster. And imo, the logo, as seen in the banner above in the forum, would look a lot better without it. The Motor Racing logo itself isnt bad at all. The X in front... not too sure.
I will suggest a few things in the coming days after giving it some more time. I already got a few things, some already suggested as well.
This thing got a lot of potential, Eugene
