  1. Wow, I feel like I'm ragging the Ferrari senseless - and yet my times are nowhere near any of yours!
  2. Reddit are tearing strips off this. The feedback I'm reading there is not good at all. The comment that has made me chuckle the most so far is "Battlefield 2042 feels like a Chinese clone of the Battlefield series" along with this: vmnxcy8utrr71.mp4
  3. I feel bad that no one has responded to you on this simple question - but I suspect the crowd here mostly dont know as we're all PC ACC racers...
  4. Just looking at the video of the last sprint race we had there - most of us were putting in laps around 1.59. @SANtoOos did a 1.53 though...
  5. I've really enjoyed those one make races we've done. A Porsche Cup or a Super Trofeo Lambo season would get a thumbs up from me.
  6. I think it was your fault - but you clearly had the faster corner entry and were gaining ground into the turn. @Erik turns in for the apex and you just clip him and spin both of you 45 degrees. Unfortunate, and not malicious, and he went on to win - so don't feel too bad
  7. Oh god, dont let your credit card watch these videos! So much lovely (aka expensive!) sim racing gear coming and
  8. Well, I'm not sure how to feel about tonight's race. Looking at the replay it looks brilliant - loads of overtakes and so much action throughout the field. The rather unfortunate incident between @milko and @Erik at the first turn gifted me second place. I held on to that, but actually had a fairly lonely race as I maintained a gap to whoever was in third (it changed a few times). At about the half way point I had to pit for fuel. I came out in 4th and assumed the guys now ahead of me would also have to pit. I drove on alone for another 20 minutes or so convinced I'd head past the pits and see the places gifted back to me. But I was very wrong. They'd already pitted (because of the accident and damage early on maybe?) and they had both caught and overtaken me. Arse. I was genuinely gutted. I could practically taste the champagne Then in the dying minutes of the race I got caught, and had an excellent multi-lap battle with @Count Buffalos. I was staying ahead *just*, thanks to carrying more speed each lap through the chicane after the hairpin, but eventually he got a decent run on me after the sector 1 left hander, and I dropped to 5th. Which is where I finished. I somehow feel disappointed, despite that being a decent result. Congrats to @Erik for having that spin, then going from last to first and winning! Here's the replay - Youtube is currently processing the HD version - so be patient if it still looks low rez. And look what tonight's race does for the championship standings! Wow, so close over the top 5!
  9. I made some setup changes, practiced a bit - and knocked almost a second off my qually pace.
  10. I haven't read the books - so Ive come in totally cold to this story - and I've watched the first two episodes and have bloody loved it! The casting worked well, the effects were top notch and the whole thing felt grounded and polished. Lee Pace was great, even if he was just recycling his Ronan the Accuser character. I am really looking forward to the next episodes.
  11. That's not what that means according to Urban Dictionary!! https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=windmilling
  12. My guesses include: 1. That is a 3000Watt doorbell chime 2. Vigorous horizontal jogging in the bedroom directly above this 3. unintended consequences of a cheap baked beans super-sale at the local supermarket Any of those close? edit: nice spoon collection
  13. Can you tell it's Friday? #workinghard
  14. @milkoYes, I commented last night that they really need to implement in car model head turning at the very least - so we can see when we are looking at each other. As it is the other car's driver just constantly stares ahead all the time and it freaks me out. It's almost passive aggression The Quest could easily add in its bare-hand tracking tech too. Matching your exact hand movements on the wheel and shifter and waving to fellow drivers would be brilliant. I have to try and tune out when the in car model is shifting with their right hand while my gear stick is mounted on the left. If I focus on it it makes my brain do a weird. In summary I *love* VR for driving - but its still possible for it to be even better:
  15. I loved that. Some of those old cars are just I enjoyed the "race" at the end too. I thought the bit with me ramming whoever it was who'd done an Austin powers and got themselves wedged in between the Amubulance and the Fire Engine was a highlight
  16. What time shall we try to all show up on the island then? 8pm UK??
  17. Also had a quick go and found the frame-rate (on a 3080 on PC) to be horrible. Even with G-Sync enabled it was very off putting. I cant tell if its the animation rate, or the actual FPS, but I found it unbearable. I also got stuck in a menus twice in 15 minutes, unable to quit out (XboxOne pad button and the backspace key both failed to do their jobs!) Too many games to play right now - so uninstalled it.
  18. The roads are narrow and quite slippery. There are quite a lot of areas up the side of the mountain that have large drop offs and no guard rail. I'll be picking something other than the Cobra or the Viper I think. Looking forward to exploring and just chatting. edit @Meers That rim looks the nuts. Very envious!
  19. I assume you've loaded up all the car packs too I dont think you can join without them, even if you dont actually choose to drive one of the modded cars
  20. I went to Race Department and used the following link to install the X-Bow https://cdn.esport-simracing.com/content/cars/ks_ktm_xbow_gt4.zip Whatever we both did - its fixed I can join now, using that car. Previously the X-bow mod I had was 74Megs, vs this one at 82 Megs
  21. @davejm I get a checksum failed error and get kicked if I pick the KTM X-bow. That's an addon car too, and I can see from Race Department that a few versions have been released... Could you add the one the server is using to the folder. Ta!
  22. Done!
  23. It was a sarcastic hated it. I bloody loved it!
  24. So I hot-wired a Cobra, did a big smokey powerslide out of the car park, turned right and headed up the twisty mountain roads, and then down to the lighthouse. Hated it How old is this game - and yet it can still look lush At times it felt like I was playing Forza Horizon - except with decent car physics and VR. edit: @davejm - server works fine, sir. Good work!
