xracer is a 3D arcade game in the style of the Psygnosis game WipeOut.
You have to fly around the track without crashing, shooting opposing
craft where necessary, and arriving in first place.
xracer requires a supported 3D hardware accelerator card and OpenGL or
a compatible library such as Brian Paul’s Mesa.

This option puts the game into full screen mode. In this mode,
the game takes over the screen and keyboard.

The fullscreen option is currently broken on 3Dfx Voodoo Graphics and
Voodoo2 accelerator cards. Set the MESA_FX_GLX environment to get
fullscreen on those boards.
