Recently, there have been scheduled race events hosted by the community. To check the schedule, vist online.re-volt.io. If you're going to take part in the scheduled races, make sure to install the car- and track packs listed on that page.

If you don't have Re-Volt installed yet, you can download the full game at re-volt.io/downloads. It will always be the most recent version of RVGL.

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

You can always ask for the host's IP on the Discord server.
When you got the IP address, copy it (CTRL C) and start up RVGL.
Then select Start Race and Multi-Player. Select Join Game. You will be prompted for the Host Computer. Now insert 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.

Why does RV House prompt me that Re-Volt can not be found?
RV House was designed for older versions of Re-Volt. It only got support for RVGL fairly recently.
