    Losing interest in this game now. The rubber banding in career mode kills it for me.

    Between this, DiRT3 (still not had GFWL patched out of it) and GRID2 (a functional but utterly shit game) I think I'm done with CM.

    If you're playing on PC you can disable the rubber-banding. It disables saving, but they completely change the races (most of them become easier although some Touring Cars tracks are still bloody difficult to win on).

    I know, it was me who told you how to do that. ;)

    The lack of saving is a big problem. A single race just doesn't interest me as much as a championship.

    I just complete them normally on Noob difficulty then replay them with rubberbanding off (and AI on Very Hard) later on. The AI suck with rubber-banding off anyway :-/

    I didn't test it much but it seemed like only Ravenwest (who normally get some sort of speed boost in addition to the regular rubber banding) were adversely affected. Like I said before, it was harder to get from 16th to 3rd but easier to get from 3rd to 1st.

    Anyway, playing every race twice seems like an awful hassle. What I might do is make a second Windows User Account and have a GAS session in there that never closes. Hopefully when I switch from that account to my normal account GAS will be suspended abd not eat up CPU in the background, though I've not tested this yet. I would have to leave my PC on all the time, maybe enable hybernation or something.

  3. I thought your team mates, drove at the same standard as yourself.  

    Nope.

    On topic: depending on the event and situation, yes they can help, sometimes. A useless teammate starting in pole (reversed grid race) can be told to DEFEND and will slow down the pack for you. A competent teammate sitting in third can slow down the leaders if told to ATTACK. He may even overtake them, at which point he can be told to DEFEND and slow them down. To be honest though, these events are rare; mostly the teammates are just another car to pass.

  4. What I like:

    It's not robotic. It follows the line like a human, rather than like a machine. It blocks, it jostles for room, it makes tiny, tiny mistakes all the time and occasionally makes big mistakes too. Even Ravenwest sometimes spin out without any other cars near them, and the spin-outs look like organic mistakes rather than the canned animation mistakes of GRID1.

    What I don't like:

    The pit manoeuvre. It doesn't belong in an "authentic" racing game. It's completely illegal in real racing. I also don't like the rubber banding or the rather wide gap in performance between Ravenwest and everyone else (if you evened up the competition you wouldn't need the rubber banding). When you get close to Ravenwest they get a magical speed boost. Please ditch that.

  5. HDR audio simulates a greater range of volume than your speakers normally produce by making normal sounds go quiet when a very loud sound is played. Similar to the way games simulate bright lights by making everything else on the screen go dark (HDR graphics). Useful for people who use headphones and people who don't want to damage their ears, but if you have large speakers cranked up to ear-damaging volume levels then I suppose you might as well turn it off.

    Are we talking about virtual mirrors, or an actual in car rear view mirror? Serious question, because I was under the impression that it was going to be the latter. 

    It's going to be a virtual mirror i.e. a rectangle at the top of the screen. I checked with @Loore already. Also the mirror is actually in the game right now and can be enabled with a tweak, but it's currently buggy.

    I agree EnsiFerrum, this notion that mirrors would affect fps is a joke. My guess is the time required to do things right would cut into what little profits this title has generated.

    Are you serious? You actually think mirrors can be rendered for free? Does the PS360 have a dedicated mirror rendering card I didn't know about?

    no amount of patches will save this game..especially on the pc platform ,most people have left the game...and as i am the only one who has responded to this just shows that people don't really care anymore...

    Thanks for the insight! We'll stop patching then and move on to the next project then shall we? The rest of the Community that keep asking for patches would perhaps think otherwise :)

    There's still people playing the game, still new players coming into the game. I rarely have trouble finding a lobby, RaceNet challenge is full of times each week etc. 

    loore no disrespect but the last time you played this game was the 18th july according to your steam profile..so i would suggest you try again online and see if you get full lobbies,i disbanded my team of 22 players only last week and none of us play the game anymore due to the online problems the pc has...times change fast

    Oh zing! LMAO
