Private Racetracks on TypeRacer
We’re happy to announce that within the next 24 hours you will be able to invite your friends to race you live in a private chat room on TypeRacer! Many of you have been asking for this capability and we’re thrilled to be releasing it!
You’ll know that private racetracks have become available when you see these two new options on the main menu:
Select “Race your friends” to host a new racetrack. Once you are in the racetrack, you’ll see a URL that you can give to your friends (in an email or instant message). This full URL is for everyone who doesn’t use TypeRacer from the social sites. For those friends who use TypeRacer from Okrut, Hi5, or MySpace, you’d use just the numeric code, which they will be able to enter from the main menu (by clicking on “Join a private race”) after logging into TypeRacer from their social site.
We’re looking forward to hearing what you think about this new feature after you’ve had a chance to try it!
