  1. 18 laps at Brazil. Host must have had TC assist switched off as I was spinning off the track for the first 6 laps or so until I realised that I had to be more gentle/smoother on the throttle. I was lapped about 4 times and still had 4 laps to go when winner took the chequered flag. Really enjoyed it though. Looks like I'll be checking the online side of the game that I've hardly used on F1 2019 or F1 2020.
  2. Wish I had a bike like this when I was a kid.
  3. Looks good. Riding physics look good in first person view.......I need to check out how it looks in third person view as I believe this view can show how good (or bad) riding physics can be in a game. The gameplay on video looks really solid though. How do you weight shift into/out of corners? Right stick I presume? Are the controls remappable too? I like gear shifting on certain buttons.
  4. What's it like to play? I've got my eye on this too. I still enjoy playing Valentino Rossi game but feel that I'd like to get one of the newer bike games for my XBox One.......as any future releases will be for the next gen consoles.
  5. It does indeed look like a decent crack at a motorbike game. The on track riding physics are difficult to nail in these games. I'm thinking of going for the 'Ride' series of games. Maybe 3 rather than the newer 4 as it has more and different type of bikes......road and race bikes.
  6. I'm thinking of taking a punt and getting it.

    Invisible hands!

    Have the invisible hands returned yet peanutt2000? It might be OK when you run the game again. I have a visual 'glitch' where the 3 drivers on the podium after the race have no bodies.....just their 3 heads!! I'm hoping it resolves itself when I next play the game. Could be worse I suppose......invisible cars might cause a problem. 😗

    What tires do I get for the race?

    I thought that I understood the tyre allocation......now I'm just confused. All I know for definite is that I always start a (25%) race on red tyres and can change to either yellow or white tyres after around 6 laps.
  9. ..........not finishing last anymore ( very occasionally get a podium place). I might have to increase the AI difficulty to 20. 😊

    trolls

    I wont use the word trolls in reference to playing F1 but as for spoilers/saboteurs......yes there are some online drivers who spoil the gaming/driving experience for other drivers. I've taken the decision not to play online because of this. I would rather pit my driving skills against offline AI generated drivers. On the few occasions that I've participated in an online race I've been forced off the track by aggressive drivers. It's not for me. It's not for Codemasters to 'fix' but rather online drivers to have a conscience.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT 5

    Hey.....I'm as old school as you can get. I like forums.....never heard of Discord until today. What is it?........ and do I (as a feller in his sixties) need or even want it?

    Understeer in 'slow' corners.

    I think that you've just sorted/refocused my steering technique DRT-Apophis. I wasn't getting 90 degree thumb movement into tighter corners....and I was probably going a bit too fast into these corners than I should have been too. Need to be going into corner at right speed (probably right gear also) for that corner.....start to make the turning input on the thumbstick a little earlier as I was running wide purely by not clipping the apex. So....what I'm trying to do for say a tight right hand bend (using clock face as reference for thumbstick movement is :- 1 Get as far as possible to the outside line. 2 Correct speed and gear for the particular corner. 3 Input turn slightly earlier than I usually do. 4 3 o'clock stick position into apex....slight adjustment if I'm cutting corner. 5 As I go through corner, push the thumbstick through to 2 o'clock against the thumbstick rim and 'roll' the thumbstick towards 1 o'clock then noon as car straightens. I've always ran with low steering linearity/ increased steering saturation as I thought that it was needed for tight cornering......only for the steering to be too twitchy on the straights. But now maybe I can set steering settings for a smoother and less twitchy drive.

    Tyre choice/strategy

    Thanks for this. Yeah.....I think Jeff offered me a change of strategy but I didn't know what to do or how to accept it. So I do this via the MFD. I've got it now.

    Tyre choice/strategy

    Solo career running 25% races. I started race on softs and boxed once to change to mediums. Rain came after the tyre change and I tried to finish race on the mediums but controlling the car was difficult. All the other AI drivers ran a one stop race. So did they change to wet tyres and could I have done a second unscheduled pit to get wet tyres? I'm presuming that, if rain comes during a race, that any further pit stops would mean that wet tyres will be fitted by the pit crew.

    Thanks for the reply and suggestions. Will give them a try.
