Also I just understand why you said that. For the record, as much as I have flipped the car due to lack of skill, I did that purposely in celebration of finally getting a decent lap in :P

I'm at about 1.24-1.25 with the Formula B at Imola, really starting to feel the game a bit better.

Record a video :) I want to see how you attack it!

I lose a whole bunch of time on the last few corners. If I attack them I spin or run wide.

I'll try and record something tonight, first have to go to college!

There really isn't a big margin for error though, it's quite easy to get it wrong. Never really raced on Imola before either.

A likely story.

I wonder how quickly the game will progress as we watch. As soon as the game gets online play, I'm going to be all over it.

1:27.5xx and I was so close to flipping on several corners, heh.

I kinda like that although there's not much content at the moment we can still have a competitive element like this.

I think my time is around 1,30 at Imola with the FB. But I've spent most time tweaking the setup for my DFGT until it felt better. I had problems with my pedals too and that I have solved. Then I've been racing some laps at Con Hill and trying the different cars. So once I did that lap, I haven't spent any more time with the FB at Imola. I think I can do quite better. Let's see if today's build fixes the lag input.

I like both circuits. They are totally different. My highlight so far is the first few corners at Con Hill at full throttle with the FB.

As for my favourite cars so far I'd go with the FB and the Lotus77. Both are awesome.

The game looks gorgeous, but it has the same problem all other PC sims have. I'm just not interested in driving those cars and I'd love to have some regular production cars in it. I know I'm aone with this opinion here, but damn, just look at it and imagine to drive the Maserati Gran Turismo in cockpit view with those graphics.

So amazing, so freaking amazing, I want to buy a PC after 10 years I scraped the damn PC out of my house thinking it is forever - and start to play this.

What is the ETA for this? Is there any concrete track list being thrown around? Is it online-only game? Are there going to be any road cars with stock values and no-racing tires? I want answers while I browsing for hardware-parts, I am amazed in levels of 2007.

Thank in advance GAF!

Other questions already answered, leaves ETA: 16/18 months.

No, it means you will have it for free on release. Plus you can earn money depending on the profits and how much you invested (your tool pack). For more information I recommend reading the terms and conditions here: http://forum.wmdportal.com/toolpacks.php

Aha. So you need to pay at least 25 to become a Team Member, then you'll get the game for free. But what if you just pay 10 to be a Junior? You're just paying for a demo?

I'm not sure, but ten euros for a monthly demo isn't too bad of a deal, to be honest.

Installing new build now!

You have some input and you will be able to play all content before release. And you can upgrade to Team Member anytime paying the extra 15

Dunno if its because I got around to install the G25 software or because of the new build. But driving feels so much better for me now (probably didnt test the last build enough).

Has anyone played the testrack ? It seems shifting doesnt work there?

It's quite funny, when the wheels of open wheelers touch a bit too hard the cars get launched in the air like you'd expect in real life, but it's a bit exaggerated.

They just don't drive on their line like in the GT games, but it needs a lot of tweaking. Sometimes they don't know you're there and they crash quite a lot.

-edit-

Uploading an AI video right now, it'll be done in about an hour.

It's sort of like minecraft. You test the game out, provide feedback, comment on what you want in the game and if enough people want it then it will be put in.

The minimum toolpack is 10 euros.

http://www.wmdportal.com/projectnews...-and-fees-101/

You get the final game for free too. (I think, it could also be the last build before retail release)
You will be paid back your 10,25 or whatever euros you have put in when the game goes on sale and if it sell more than 250k, you'll get some profit too!
