    I found the version 1.0.1 very nice. Not VR, just triple screen. The FFB feels amazing. I tried the AMG on light rain at Spa. BEAUTIFUL handling. Not very slippery curbs, nice feeling of puddles. Their solution for triple screen isn't very good but with bezel correction from nVidia drivers it is playable.
    I really enjoyed the driving. I like it.
    I'm afraid the UE it is not the best engine for simracing, still I have full trust KUNOS will deliver a good sim.

    I cant stop driving it :p.. its like a drug :confused::cool::D..Finally a game whos FFB is on par with rf2 but this is beyond rf2 now ! it's what I was hoping AC would be when it launched ...but it failed ( for me ) . ;)
    Even with the not so great for race sim UE engine its still stunning & has its moments . I think its just the aliasing that's got ppl upset , in 4k it's no problemo :rolleyes:..
    Car psx are superb , the cars feel amazing (to me) .
    It's got some bugs but over all game play has been spot on for me , and we have some more features coming along with bug fix's ..
    There is going to be some good racing with this sim !

    Eau Rouge wants to kill me, help, please, I am desperate. I have been running for one hour and I probably got it "okay" only once.

    Well, I agree with Rob on the driving. But sometimes it's hard to accept that nowadays games can't really be played from day 1. Always some bugs, unfinished issues… keep calling it beta if some important issues aren't still there (fully playable MP, developed career mode…)

    Also other cons are the medal requirements. It's a great feature for open and high competitive servers, but for a community league, which can deal with bad drivers in a different way, they should have the option to remove requirements completely and still have the full grid available. Even if it doesn't compute for driving points.

    It has a great deal of small details: Proper initials and led positions, pro/am and numberplates adjusted for each driver depending on the game rankings... but I'm not sure how that would fit with custom liveries, as some spots are taken but that kind of things. I've read somewhere that maybe a custom designer à-la-iRacing could be added? It should spice things a bit to allow us to have our own skins, being a screenshot taker like I am, it always feels better to see different liveries for each car

    But as said: the driving… well, to me it just fits. Easy to drive, hard to drive on the edge if you want to go for the last tenth, but they promise to be a great experience for endurance racing (2-3 hours or more, with night and variable weather)

    Also, ACC has made something I thought it was completely imposible since my GTR2 days: me driving a front-engined, right-handed car... and loving it!!! That Bentley just feels awesome to me. I just hope it doesn't become the car-to-go for most people so I have to drive another just to add some variety :p

    And for the 1st time with ACC: (not super happy with the result, still have to adjust things in ACC and I also moved from Photoshop to Gimp so I have to relearn a bunch of things to get the pics as I want)

    Ya you ran away and we never saw you ! Lol. That thing was hauling ass ! Lol
    Thx everyone who took part & sorry I still had the requirements on , there off now and that does not reduce the grid it opens It up to 30 slots ! Its when you put low requirements that it restricts grid slots , The idea is if there not that good of drivers yet it only lets a few in so you don’t get massive pile up’s . Then when you set a safety rating over 70 you also get all the grid spots back .

    Nice pic’s ! Is that 1080 or 4k ? :D

    Alberto you won so you get to pick next weeks track !
    I will put it up as soon as you let me know!

    Joined the server late after practicing for the Porsche GT4 series in AC.
    I only joined to see if the multiplayer had improved since I last had a go a month or so ago and was impressed.
    Didn't realise I had joined in the dying seconds of quali and decided to try the NSX which I have never driven, amongst other cars so far!
    Didn't know that the rolling start was "just round the corner" so was surprised to see the green flag so soon which obviously everyone else anticipated and shot off.
    Wasn't too bothered because I just wanted to run around and get used to the car.
    Am I impressed? You bet your ass I am!!
    Just because I was running on my own 40 to 50 seconds back didn't deter me to try and push the car (a little too much in some instances but never mind)
    Would have joined in the chat after the race but didn't know how to do it. By the time I had googled it you had all gone lol
    Not sure if my best time was competitive or not to be honest it doesn't matter that much to me as long as I enjoy driving and in some cases actually racing someone
    Will try and get on the server more now :)

    wow, nice, thanks! :D:D

    We did Spa, and Monza last week, fast wide tracks… let's go to a twisty and narrow one then: Brands Hatch (just wondering if the race could be set to start late so we can have an 'into the night', or a full night race? :rolleyes:)

    Ok server is up @ Brands Hatch ! Settings : Race start | 6:00 pm In Game | weather randomness bumped up from 1 to 2 this round . Time excel to X10 for race session .
    I moved the in game start time to 6pm with x10 time this will simulate 300 min or around 5 hrs . This puts us finishing around midnight in game time ! we should see the sunset & lights come on ..map your headlights ! you also might make sure your wipers work ;-) . The way kunos did the weather for tracks is to put real world weather data in for that tracks region during the time of the real BP series , so its not like pcars 2 where you can have snow at Bahrain lol , it keeps it somewhat real … You can over ride the weather to make some craziness happen but its still within the actual weather possibility's for the region ..

    Some things to look out for when playing ACC :

    Rev Limiter < If your going to be on the ball and do it your self , map the lim button and switch it in the game settings to MANUAL . (ACC is like pc2 where the limiter is off when you enter so if you forget to turn it on and bomb out of the pits at speed you instantly get a DQ) .. Now to turn it on the car must be stopped or slowly rolling & in first gear , if you change gears it turns it off so you need to stay in 1st until your across the pit out line then you can either shift or hit the button , It is important when pitting to slow the car enough at pit in to apply the rev limiter .. On race starts the rev lim is always auto .
    If you don't want to mess with all that simply put the rev limiter to AUTOMATIC in the game settings .... however I had issues with it not coming on when pitting so Im using manual now , but that was with 1.0.0 ..

    I also noticed my sets don't save correctly … not sure whats going on there ..

    Also To Chat in game Yo use the ENTER key , sadly this only works when your in the car /not in the lobby where it would be most effective ..so to chat first you hit DRIVE then ENTER & the chat box comes up .. also once you send your chat you then need to hit ENTER again to chat again, it dos not stay up ..

    Hi rob can you race with a pitstop?
     
  19. Rob Milliken

    Rob Milliken Administrator Staff Member SRO Team Member

    As soon as we get all the server cfg commands we will be able to add a mandatory pit stops with pit windows , driver swaps, etc.
    For now we only have a basic cfg so we cant set or force anything ..
