Improvements & Fixes

Burnin' Rubber 3 has been upgraded from a webgame to a full standalone title!

System requirements

Burnin' Rubbber 3 should run properly even on older machines (5+ years old).
This version does use more video memory due to the highres car and menu textures - this can cause issues on older non-dedicated video cards!
Please note performance will degrade more when running the game in a higher resolution and with more of the experimental advanced features turned on.
We recommend running the game in 1024x768.


Burnin' Rubber 3 is 4:3 and runs in a window. Only experimental fullscreen functionality (Alt+Enter).

Burnin' Rubber 3 was made with Adobe Director, which has become obsolete over the past few years. We are trying to keep this game (and our other games) from being forgotten or lost. The game is fully functional, even on Windows 10.

However, Windows 10 users beware! Issues can arise when you are on Windows 10 using a NVIDIA graphics card. We implemented a workaround to get the game up and running for Windows 10.

THX XformGames :) Sryy Im Brazilan but im love very you game 


eu vou comprar pq amei esse jogo da primeira vez que joguei mas tenho uma pergunta ele funciona pra windows 8.1?


Could you rephrase that in English? If you asked if it would work on win 8.1 then the answer is yes :) 


I'm Brazilian, can I buy this game with the card?


how to unlock fps limit?

i use 144hz monitor but this game's ingame frs limit is 32.

how to unlock 60 or 144fps?

Unfortunately you cannot unlock the fps - as this is very old tech the framerate had to be capped to make sure it would run fine online. 
During the standalone port we did some test to unlock or either cap it to 60 but that proved too troublesome :(

This game run in Windows 7? 

Yes - there should be no issue!

I was bought, I love this game much, thanks a lot for publishing this game to us!!!!

No thanks needed :) Enjoy the game!

 Hey xfrom please android version on google play #burnin ruber 3 for free beta version please!!!!

you are fucking Retarded?

(1 edit)

Calling someone a "fucking retard" isn't the best thing to say to someone you disagree with.


hey xform I cant seem to run the game, I clicked border using 1440x1080(that isn't not in my available settings since I can only run at 1920x1080.) also the screen tends to glitch and I cant go farther than "create a domination" the next and back buttons on screen are out of reach causing me to get stuck on the menu. would be nice if you added 1920x1080 support 16:9 aspect ratio. I've been dying for this release and its a bummer I can't even play it.


Hey Xform! Love your games, especially BR3! I just wanted to point out that on my computer (using a Nvidia graphics card audio), there is a weird quirk where the sound stops working (the game goes mute) whenever I retry a stage or mission. I know this didn't happen in the web version, and I don't know if I am the only one, but I hope that this is useful.

Thanks for letting us know! We’ll look into it!

You're not the only one, and it haven't been fixed.

Hello, I was wondering about that BR5 "Bloodrun" version, I've seen a video of it and was wondering, is it  going to be released?

Hi Avidia! It's not going to be released unfortunately, although it might be a game mode in BR6!

hello xform games is it possible that mabye if you could add some joypad conrtroler function to the game if possible am just suggesting thanks for now


If I recall correctly we did try out some joypad stuff way, way, way back!
I can check for you - but I dont have a schedule for that since we're a bit busy atm.
Will put it on the list!


Not related at all to Xform, however I'd recommend using a program like JoyToKey (my personal favourite) or Xmapper until they can implement official gamepad support. Cheers!

how to get body kit for cars

You complete races either in Domination or Daily Challenges. While the body kit part unlock will be consistent to the challenge in Domination, it is randomized in Daily Challenges, so be aware.


Hello xform! Burnin rubber 3 seems to have audio lag and the sound of the vehicle's engine and the sound of the terrain it is moving on is quite broken and gets stuck. It happens frequently. Please help.

However, the gameplay doesn't lag as well as the music.

Hello xform is this game safe to download in itch.io and is the game really 2.99 USD that seems a little cheap I only have 200 PHP (3.81 USD) I use to have 1,000 PHP but my sister still owes me 900 PHP (i have 100 PHP that i still have there in my wallet) I can only afford this game not BR4  or BR5 and I'll ask my parents if they can buy me this game you could take your time. I play BR2, BR3 (was my favorite until BR5 came out) BR4, BR5 but now I am 11 years old i remeber playing BR3 first then the others then I became addicted to BR5 hope fully you could answer my question as fast as possible. EDIT: I live in the Philippines so am broke

Hi GamerJens, 

Yes the game is 2.99 - and still as fun as the original one ;)


Burnin' Rubber 3 Standalone v1.4 / Game v2.4? Xform

yes - it is internal/external version so we can differ more easily between de standalones and the old ones. Nothing to get worried about ;)

Hello XForm ! I never dared to buy your game on this questionable site ! why does the site ask for 3 numbers by which the site can gain control of the card? if it is not necessary to enter these numbers please record a video how to get around it! or convert the game to steam!

Hi Ugalek,

It is pretty normal to enter those numbers. If you don't feel comfortable using a credit card you can use Paypal as well. Unfortunately we won't be porting this version to Steam.


When I enable motion blur in the launcher the game starts to lag really bad, independent of any other settings as far as my experience goes.

Also, things close to the camera become slightly transparent by the combination of motion blur and nitrous!

Could this be hardware dependent? I am using the appearently dangerous combination of Windows 10 and NVIDIA, but the rest of the game works just fine for me.

Hi Coolkopf,

The motion blur is a pretty performance intensive effect. Especially since we use a rather brute force approach as Director doesn't support shaders or even a basic form of image effects. My advice would be to turn it off.
Windows 10 and NVIDIA has nothing to do with it.


Dear XForm,

Can you please add that you can pay with iDeal, and also add that you can buy the game with every currency (USD, Euros, Pounds ect.) So that I also am able to play the game

Hi! I bought the game and I played it but I have 2 questions.

1. Why can't I save my data? I mean, when I create a new domination, play for a bit, then exit the game and when I come back, the domination is gone. There should be a "Continue Domination" button, I'm pretty sure. I have to create new dominations and play over and over every time I enter the game, which is stupid.

2. Is it possible to play in higher fps, because when I play it feels like I'm playing on... idk, maybe 30 fps? If it's not possible, no problem I can keep like that. Just to mention, I'm using a 144hz monitor but I don't think this matters a lot but just in case.


As far as we can tell there should be no issue with data saving.
Are you logged in? Are there restrictions to you as a Window user? The save game should be located in
C:\Users\[YOURUSERNAME]\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Director 11\BurninRubber3\Prefs

About your second question. Unfortunately the game is limited at around 30 fps.
While technically Director (the software used to build BR3) can run at higher fps we never could squeeze the performance out of it with the stuff we wanted to do... 


(1 edit)

I tried to disable any windows user restrictions. I re-installed the game and did many other things but it still doesn't save my data. I hope you have any ideas how can I fix that.


Is there anything in the folder I mentioned earlier? is there a file?

(1 edit)

That's weird... There was something in this folder but after I re-installed the game it's gone. There isn't anything in the folder right now. 

EDIT: There was a folder with name Adobe. Now it's gone.

that is odd - since that folder is not managed by the installer 
it is created when the game runs - and as far as I know won't be removed

are you running any virus or malware software which might disable the files to be saved there?

Actually, Director does support 60FPS too and I did play Metal Mayhem World Tour in 60 FPS and it is really smooth. I do know if you mod BR3 to run in 60fps, it messes up the timing. This is also a problem with BR4, but both games support 60FPS fine. Maybe you can fix the timing issue so enemies don't get to shoot faster and you slower. 

However, I actually like 60FPS for BR4 as it makes it a bit harder and everything is smoother. If Xform has time, a proper 60FPS would be nice, but look, they just released an awesome update which fixes a lot of the real problems. 60 FPS is a minor thing.

please release the burning rubber 3 and 4 on steam

No,they will release on itch.io.

it says adobe projector has stopped working help please??


Please send a mail with details to support(at)xformgames.com. Please include as many detail as possible! 

Can You Make The Burnin Rubber 4 Standalone Because I Really Wanna Play It And Even Though Its Not On Shockwave.com Can You Make The Standalone Version And When Will You Start To Make It :)!


yes - working on it :)

Awesome! I am glad that the games return as standalone downloads  :D

The only two things left to make it perfect in my mind are resolution options with 16:9 and gamepad driving input. But even without... 

Hours of fun, here I come!
