Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

That's why I was so happy to find this community early on. I know Don joined and has run a couple of the hot lap challenges, but we have so many things going on...."Hump Day DTM" races with the German cars. Multi-class GTE/GT3/GT4 on a different track each week. Of course I drive in almost all the E...

Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

WTF? Bizarre. No thank you. I am so deeply engrossed in iRacing now, that it seems like nothing else matters. The Discord community I help manage is up over 1,000 members, with multiple community races every week. It's about all I have time for. It's getting so big that Tony Kanaan joined our little...

Not gonna lie...that was the closest I've come to throwing a controller in years, Sudz. No trick or gimmick, just gotta get lucky with not running into tables or walls.

Re: The Last of Us 2

Finished it up yesterday. I could definitely see why guys lost their minds and posted such bad reviews, but what I imagine to be their big problem didn't bother me as much. At first I was a little "wtf?", but I got over it pretty quickly. Naughty Dog told the story they wanted to tell. I'm not going...

Don't know, I've never needed to do that. But I guess you could just save the profiles in Fanalab and load them as necessary.

Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

Not unless it's a new game. I literally have one profile I use for all cars in iRacing, and I just adjust strength in-sim based on whether it's dirt, oval, road, or a car strength difference. Then save controls for that car and it's like that moving forward. In other sims, sometimes I have multiple ...

Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

After reading your post I decided to go with the trial version once more. I'm glad I did... there's not a lot you can do with the force feedback and steering wheel response. Even though what it defaults to is closer to a good setting for my tastes than I would have imagined, not being able to get t...

You should join the Discord community: https://discord.gg/vVGXhw So many guys there, and so much helpful info. We're running community races constantly, too.

I am spending most of my time with Sampsoid Racing now (David Sampson on Youtube). Fantastic community. Discord of over 400 members, weekly racing all the time.

Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

Same with the sim gear eyeballing! This is my home now: No VR? Graphics take a dive in resolution, but the immersion factor is unreal. I can't do a serious sim in 2D anymore. I've got an Oculus Rift, and an Oculus Rift S. The clarity is the biggest drawback--as is comfort over long sessions. Barely...

Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

Can't dispute that at all. The console should be treated as such, and the default native controller as the primary development method. Anything else should be secondary.

Yeah, for sure. I joined it in June of 2008, and it's only grown exponentially since then. I've only recently really started getting into it heavily, though. A few leagues I'm in have live broadcasts with commentators and everything, which has been my first experience with the "big league" presentat...

Re: Dirt Rally 2.0 coming 26 February 2019

Still running the crap out of this. Been using the "Up to 2000cc" I think it's called, and those things are an absolute BLAST to drive. I got some new gear (wheel rim, pedals, cockpit, seat) which have transformed pretty much every bit of racing I do nowadays...but if this league is coming, I'm stil...

There's been a simracing exposure explosion in the past week. It's all over the news in simracing circles. Pretty unprecedented level of exposure across all disciplines.

Re: Racing Sim Thread, Part II

No force feedback in the game at all on PC, which is surprising--considering they have an option for "steering wheel". I set my wheel to 210 degrees of rotation so it's a quick snap back and forth, but there's just nothing there for center spring or anything. Seems controller-or-bust for this one.

Re: Oculus Rift

Mirror wasn't giving me an accurate counter--it was just showing me what my Rift was displaying for me, so I could watch it outside of the headset once recorded. And it was definitely NOT 80FPS. It was stuttering and dipping (didn't need a FPS counter to see it), and that happened to coincide with w...

Re: Oculus Rift

Only time I ran into anything even remotely close to that, Don, it's because the framerate wasn't where it was supposed to be. One of the updates screwed up performance, so while it SAID my S was running at 79/80FPS, I used Oculus Mirror and captured it...it wasn't. It was dipping all over the place...

AI was fantastic. Incredible AI, awesome to race. New experience racing AI, and I haven't seen any other NASCAR game that felt as realistic. The AI took multiple lines, honored your position on track, and could actually be raced naturally. I could let some by and save tires early on, and "save my st...

Kept refreshing Twitter last night until I saw the status, but forgot to post it here (I'm sure anybody paying attention has seen already, anyway). But Newman is in serious condition...injuries are not life-threatening, though. Amazing to hear that after what I saw last night.

As long as you don't mind the cars handling like boats. My initial impressions that I posted at OS after the game unlocked on the 13th: 1) Played on an XBox One X with a controller (no way I'm moving my sim rig or my XBox to play this lol). 2) Out of the box, I jumped into a TQ race and the cars fel...
