  • Re: RaceNet down?

    It'd be nice if we could cancel the "Uploading Results" screen, or have an option to turn it off for career mode. I hate how it tries to connect and makes me wait for about 30 seconds after EVERY stage if there's a connection problem.

    Wait, so you ragequit when you hit a spectator and get reset, but you'd be OK with getting instantly disqualified instead? wat

    Seriously though, the stage generator is probably going to place spectators randomly, so hopefully it'll be less likely to place them outside corners. The reset is annoying, but what's a better option? Disqualification might be more realistic, but then you might feel cheated if you go off and hit someone that was placed weirdly. Personally I would like it better if there was a fade to black for a couple of seconds, that way I could at least pretend something is happening behind-the-scenes instead of just watching the car magically reappear in the middle of the road. Who knows, it's a weird problem to solve.

    Ultimately it doesn't matter much if you focus on staying on the road. Since all of D4's stages will be unique, it might matter even less, because you're not dealing with the same spectator placement every time. Sometimes the generator might put somebody in a bad place, but that's only one spectator placement in one corner in one stage. The chances of getting bad placements should be pretty low compared to DR where they never move at all.
    I really, really hate resetting o.o It immediately removes me from any 'immersion' I previously had. 

    In fact, just make them fly off like team rocket, give me my 15 second penalty and let me continue on. I don't even care that much about the penalty, but the reset drives me insane.

    Also, I wish you all would quit saying "learn to stay on the road" really makes you sound like douche bags when you say that lol. When a guy is standing a foot off the edge of the track on a blind corner exit, it's not going to matter how good you are, you'll eventually hit him.


    Sorry, don't mean to be rude, but really, they are not *in* the road, they're only a problem when you go off. We want to help you improve your driving so that you don't go off, that way you'll be cleaner and faster AND you won't have to deal with resets. Win-win, right? That guy standing close to the road doesn't matter if you keep a good line and don't go off. Yeah, mistakes happen, but they are mistakes, you can learn from them.

    The only reason DirectX isn't backwards compatible is so Microsoft can leverage people into upgrading their OS. Hopefully Vulkan starts getting widespread use so we don't have to deal with that crap anymore.

    Ok, no more ranting about exclusivity, I promise this time!
