Don't normally get into Forum trollguments and all the moaners coming in and saying this game and that game are rubbish and we want the cars to be red or this game is good on pc because it's been modded, but here's my ten pence worth.
@CV65, Richard burns rally was a total waste of space. I had it on release and it was just a carbon copy of Colin McRae games, yes it probably would have changed and advanced but we all know what happened, so with respect to a Top rally driver and great guy i'll say no more. It was only made any good from what I can gather by being hacked/modded and made so called better like that, back in the day if something was hacked/modded then people like you came in forums and complained that games were being hacked. yes it can be a pain in the a## when things aint right but you have a set of rules,settings and the equipment to use it on so find out what you got to do and come and show us your metal. Or maybe go buy a mountain bike simulator then you can compare the realism to what you are used to in real life :).
COLIN McCrae 2 was and still is probably the best rally game ever !!! FACT > on the basis of pure release content and game play, just a pity it was when graphics were new, so picture quality was poor, (just a quick dig at codemasters here, the latest games do come across as a bit of a rip off, due to lack of content and paying to get even half the content and cars that came with a game namely cm2 which you released nearly 20 years or more ago, where has your company pride gone) oh yeah F1 I forgot.
As for the people who are moaning about the ffb. I myself personally don't understand the issue, think most people expect to turn on and go without doing any work to make things work, or have found some fantasy settings that have worked in the past and because they don't work on a more modern game there not happy because mummy can't help them get it right, tech moves on and so do your settings. check out a certain video site youthingy lots of people post settings and car setups, if you look enough you may notice that all are rather different, now aint that strange, maybe setting up a car and a wheel could be down to personal preference, every setting will alter so many things and other settings need to be adjusted to make it all come together. if you think you go to a car manufacturer and bolt all the race gear onto the car and just go your very mistaken, tweek your game settings, FFB settings and most definitely your Car settings. one affects the other and no two people will be the same.
Simulator/Arcade thing is so old news as said above, if you want to get any of the racing games/simulators to work you can with the right knowledge and know how or maybe you should stick to the ones where you are in Auto, 3rd person view and can put fancy body kits on them and bounce off buildings to be fast, it's also about time someone grew some and made a game without any aids at all and made one fits all if it's on the race car in real life then we all got it, if it's an early car with nothing then we all got nothing, I suppose that would then be classed as a simulator, as it is simulating real life, I'm sure arcade is pacman other arcade games are in my thought's and available 🙂 sorry mr copyright man just plucked the 1st random one out my head 🙂
And just before any silly little boys come screaming at me about this post, I DON'T CARE, I've done 15 years of various real motorsports and over 2o so years of simulated racing and regularly show on leaderboards on my favoured format PS4 , Even though i'm knocking on a bit now and maybe not quite as sharp as I was a few years back, admittedly I do think a little more effort could be put into the games and not just be blasted out for a quick cash in, but unfortunately money rules the world, have posted a topic listing for the CLUB MODE to come back as I think it is missed for friend interaction other than having to all be live at same time, take a look and add signature, it would be appreciated.
Me and my trusty T500 will leave it at that now, I think you get the jist of what i'm saying
