I got Mudrunner for x-mas and started to play it this week. the camera really is funky like everyone says in videos. The handling seems to take forever in trucks for the reaction times are kinda weird also. just did the first 3 challenges so far in the game that's about all so far. going to play more this next week over gta 5 though for something different.?

So who else has the game and is playing online with it?

i have it for XB1, haven't played any online though

there is a new camera if you go into options or settings you can pick center camera or something like that

 

the steering is super slow on some trucks and the lack of "return to center" is weird but not too far off from ow those trucks handle, especially in mud

Now to see how late I stay up tonight.

same here, I was thinking that I could get all drunky and off-road digitally and use the steering wheel but alas the game only supports controller.

haven't played it since - the controls were very clunky

^Is that on PC or console?  I've been eyeing it on steam sales.  It looks silly, in a good way.

The whole 'not returning to center' steering is what makes it annoying.

It's fun and all, and I do like the new map, but everything is so slow. The steering, the top speeds, even shifting gears, just so slow. 

I wish they'd bring mod support to consoles already. This would be a lot more fun with 1000hp spinning 65 inch tractor tires.

For those of you on PC, it looks like Steam Workshop recently added support for user made maps now.

I snagged this for $12 today.

The controls are awful at best.  There is no way that I can tell to play with just the wheel.  You need a mouse/keyboard and/or controller to accompany it because there are so many buttons.  Some simple changes could eliminate the need for a lot of them too (for example who needs a discrete button for all the cameras?  just a button to cycle through them like you know... every racing game ever would be just fine)

 

If anyone plays with a wheel I'd be curious to see how you have it set up.

I play this on Xbox as well and agree that the controls are a bit clunky.

But once you get the hang of it, its a surprisingly engaging game. And it's really as challenging as you want to make it. You can follow the main roads and its not bad, or you can just try to go everywhere in a straight line and then your "shortcut" results in you winching for 3 hours with every vehicle in the map. Great way to waste some time and prove to yourself that the shortcut was "totally worth it".

I played some more last night and it was better.  I had my keyboard, mouse right in front of my wheel so I could use it as well.  I did exactly what you said... got myself stuck and used 3 different trucks to winch/fuel/transfer load.  Made it 1 turn from the lumber mill and rolled the truck lol.  It was pretty amusing, but I could see logging getting really old really quick.

The shifting is really weird.  You can't give it any gas when you are moving the shifter, even if you have the clutch fully depressed, or it will cause damage.  I don't understand this at all.  Unless you are on perfectly dry & straight road with no load, any gear above 2 is pointless.

You are not wrong with your thought that it'll get old. It's not a game that gets a ton of play, but "amusing" is a good way to describe it. The only other game I have is Dirt Rally, so if I want to just have a mellow night in and not watch my blood pressure go up playing that, I'll pop in Mud Runner and fart around in the woods for a bit.
