    Did the modder also said directly to a kunos dev that they had no idea of what they were doing,  and that the handling of his "elantra" was more realistic in forza than in assetto corsa ?   :#
    It feel like someone is still "salty"...
    No. I did not make sound mods. That was Fonsecker, and he did say they didn't know what they were doing.
    I stated that Forza looks visually better than Assetto Corsa.
    I also stated that there seemed to be a tinge of understeer and very little body roll in all cars as was exampled in my Elantra. Even the big SUV's seem to be too stable.
    Get your facts straight before you start talking smack.
    Sure I think the dev's are assholes, but the product doesn't even stand on it's own for it to be worthwhile. Phil Fish is an asshole, and I still liked Fez and wanted a sequel.

    Yeah that doesn't look to shabby. 

    I must say though, I really can't stand the engine sounds in Assetto Corsa. They sound so generic and digital  :s
    What I think is funny is that they have decent audio recording equipment, they just don't know what to do with it, much less the audio engine.
    Then they tried to ban the guy that made sound mods. :neutral:

    any updates anywhere from Christina yet ?  just curious if you guys have seen any posts on the net 
    Unless you're very, very good at reading in-between the lines of my subconscious, I've not said anything meaty just yet. :)
    103 Characters. 21 Words. 103 divided by 21 is 4.90. 

    I did some quick research, and found found this:

    I also used MS Word to count the characters and words in @ChristinaMc 's  post:


    I know it's not in English bit it says:
          - Words: 20
          - Characters(spaces excluded): 101
          - Characters(spaces included): 120

    If you ignore the full stop at the end you get 100/20 = 5

    These two clues make me believe, codies are going to release DIRT 5, which could mean DIRT Rally was a one-time spinn-off :( 
    Offcourse this is pure speculation and even though @ChristinaMc and @CMMcBabe clearly hint that DIRT 5 is a thing and that it's supposed to come in the (near) future.
    As long as there's no official confirmation this is pure DIRTy gossip  ;) 
    But I think by now it's very clear what @ChristinaMc is going to write about "in the coming weeks"

    Sooo she's talking about a ~30s video (it is actually 34 seconds) and 15 stars collected in said time. She then says 15/3=5 but why /3 and not /30? That's the right number of seconds! Because 15/3 isn't a math calculation, it's a date! 15th March! The announcement date of DiRT 5!

    All this might be due to the fact I have 38.6°C fever. It actually is probably
    This is the brilliantly speculative sort of content I deeply enjoy. Keep looking. ;) 

    It was noted that her post had C and B in caps, I speculated it might be extra RX tracks, perhaps Cataluya, Barcelona?
    Or Canada and Belgium tracks?
    Oh, come on, don't be like that Babe. You'll always be my special lady.

    As much as I'd like additional content for D4, IF it is, I still think some tweaks to car handling is a bit more essential.
    If it is a new RX game, that could be very neat indeed as long it actually has more content than DR and D4.

    The road texture looks better in @dotmartin picture, It looks better than any D4 pic, but I think they arent that dumb to upload a pic of an unannounced game, so it must be D4
    Texture pack confirmed?

    i guess someone was promoting it.just media. one thing that does make me chuckle is all the comments from wheel manufactures and people commenting about Fanatec and Thrustmaster expensive set ups are needed. when all or 90 percent of all the records broken in racing and rally games are done on cheaper logitech wheels :D. i guess you have to sell your product but if you dont know that your product isnt making the records dont say it is. :)
    It's commonly known that if you want to be as fast as possible in racing sims, don't go for an authentic setup of your wheel. Low DOR and low FFB is the way to go. People even turn FFB off completely to be fast.
    Very true, but I don't understand how people get used to "driving" like that. It's absolutely bizarre for me.
    Indeed. I can't drive like that, I find zero pleasure at all. I want it to feel as authentic as possible and if that means I'm a tad slower than I could be that is a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

    That said, I respect other peoples choices as well.
    Negative, how dare they disagree with me! Their opinion is their own, but it's wrong and therefore invalid.
