There's no way it won't work on PC, but what about the separate G27 shifter in the NFS studio photo?


Are they repackaging the G27 with no shifter like the G29 or is it for bending over current G27 owners who want a security chip equipped shifter for PS4 compatibility?

Are they just basing that on the fact that it is made for the PS4, or did Logitech whisper something in their ears.
I suppose it could launch like the DFP, which was PS2 only but with semi-official drivers for PC from 'wingmanteam', before becoming part of the main Logitech Gaming Software package.

I don't think wingmanteam is a thing these days... but they'd be mad not to make PC drivers anyway.

Love that track with the GT cars.

I always tend to accelerate the ToD and have several weather slots, though.

No rain, mind.

The time progression was perfect for this. Sun was just on the horizon, behind the trees coming over the hill into the last corner. By about 15 minutes in, the sun was starting to peek over the trees, blinding me a bit, but looking beautiful. Track was shaded but the billboards overhead had that first morning light on them.

I don't usually care too much about day/night cycles and weather and all but this was a downright heavenly drive.

And yes, fuck rain.

The variable ToD and different atmospherics is a brilliant feature. It really helps to make racing the same tracks feel fresh and different, much much more than I ever thought it would. It really should be compulsory in all driving games from now on.

Try thick fog at dawn, clearing slowly to clear blue skies - it looks utterly awesome.

Rain should be banned though.

The 15.5 drivers transformed the performance of the game for. Was getting 20-30fps at the default settings in clear weather with no other cars on Monaco. Now the framerate is the same but with a full grid of 36 and in thunderstorm weather. Can tweak things downwards a bit from here and actually start to play the game.

i like rain in the F1 games. Shakes things up and racing through the spray behind cars and struggling to see turns on a track you know well is tense and fun in it's own way.

It just doesnt really fit in this game if the AI isnt being affected by it. Just fucks the player.

When I realized what was going on with the AI cars in my first career-mode heavy rain race, I was pretty mad.

That's the last time I'm going to post that particular leaderboard. I'll continue to update it of course, so keep posting times for as long as you'd like. 37 entries, that's outstanding, gents!

I'll be posting a brand new challenge either tonight, or tomorrow morning.

GT5 Ginetta G40 UK Challenge - Round 2, Race 2 (5 lap)

Not sure how starting position is decided in the full race after the sprint. Is it reverse qualification time? I had to do some bobbing and weaving, which is honestly more interesting since the AI doesn't know how to start, but just curious.
This is 80% AI, for reference.

Hotlap Challenge #3


Alpine A450 @ Sonoma (short)



Time Trial mode, Run it however you'd like. All platforms/skill levels/aids/controllers are welcome. An accompanying screenshot or video would be great, but it's not mandatory. If you've got a really competitive time, it gets a little more so though ;-)

Have fun!

---------------

This is a nice and efficient challenge. Really short lap time, glued car. I'm predicting a very tight field!

Apparently I suck at OBSing. I never manage to turn it on properly. The cockpit replay is a poor substitute for the realtime recording, so all I can offer is another TV cam of my lap. It's better than nothing as it's important to know where I've been naughty or nice :)

Morning chaps. Given how much i love DC with its social aspects with many other GAF dudes, i'm interested in getting into aswell. I'm on PS4 of course so what do i need to do to get these TT events? I've only been playing career mode so i'm wet behind the ears with everything else.

Just set it up using the stated car/track combo and post your best time. Couldn't be simpler..!

After spending yesterday tweaking my wheel ffb settings, just had a session in career with the kart and damn was it a workout, but now when it all clicks it's just sublime love the helmet cam. Can't wait to get lapped by you lot. B-)

Does anyone else have this effect with bright objects like the sun and street lights? They leave a trail on the screen, some of them fade but others stay there. I'm on PC. Anyone know what effect it is so that I can turn it the hell off?

Ok so there's no function as such in the game itself, some sort of online event etc etc? SO do the above and post a photoshopped image? ;)
There are official hotlap 'events' posted by the devs, which are essentially time trials on a countdown, but Big Takeover is picking his own combos - I don't think there is a way to create your own hotlap event. The time trial is a separate function in the menus - if you pick the car and track through this function, it'll be on the right settings, i.e. no tyre wear, fuel locked to 5 litres, and a fixed time of day. Your times will then appear on the leaderboards page.

Is the DS4 any good for this game yet? I really want to pick it up but lost interest when everyone was complaining early about horrible pad controls. I would love a wheel but I don't have $600 to burn.

Sonoma short? Come on!
:D

I wanted a really short lap for the challenge, plus I quite like the NASCAR layout for hotlapping. Sue me! I enjoy traversing that huge exit curb at the bottom of the hill as if I were hoping the wake on water skis.

At 43 seconds you were miles off the track, is that legal?
I've probably gone half a car width too wide, but yeah, that's the real life line used for that corner, if you can believe it. Of course it's legal. I'm not going to post some DQ'd lap!

Nice lap!

First clean lap a 1:09, then dropped down to 1:07s consistently, finally broke into 1:06 territory. Think I can still trim a bit.

Pretty darn happy with it. Video is a cockpit replay (same view I drive in) featuring the ghost of Big Takeover. Don't like losing frames when trying to trim fractions of a second off.
I think the only part of this course that a wheel helps is the early turns where the track isn't level, you can't quite tell if you're slipping and when it's totally safe to throttle it hard. Might be wrong, but that's from my previous experience of using a wheel and no longer having one.

You just had to be 0:00:156 faster didn't you? Well, now I feel like rediong it all over :)

edit: You are right about the early parts with a wheel, I totally had you in the 1/3 of the track and you absolutely made it back after that.

Yea, I cant really drive this car/track combo. I'm crashing or spinning all the time. I can probably get down to a low-mid 1:04, but putting a lap together is proving too frustrating.

Dealing with the car as it goes light over hills or gets bumpy coming out of corners, or trying to finesse the throttle out of the last corner.....I just cant manage it all to do a real good lap. Those with excellent reactions and good car control should do well, but this just isn't my forte. 1:05.353 is best complete lap I did in about an hour of trying and it wasn't a very good lap.

Nah, didn't like this one, car a bit twitchy, track doesn't really flow for me, turn 3 is a nightmare, not very enjoyable, could go faster, made a lot of mistakes in this lap, just not fun enough to try!!
Ha ha..! Nope, I'm not even GOING to try. As soon as I saw the car/track combo I had flashbacks to that hateful Forza 3 career race with LMPs on the narrow Amalfi village cobbles. It's the moment I started falling out of love with that franchise.

Yeah, I'm a fucking pussy. What of it?
