  1. It's not Nvidia drivers, as I have that exact same issue with my Radeon R9 290X's. The game instantly crashes at boot most times (before any of the intro vids are played) or when I try and get to the race after choosing a car/track. Unlike Nvidia's drivers tho, it seems AMD's one's bring Windows 8 down with it when GRID causes them to stop responding. All my other games work fine, and the system never crashes otherwise. It never used to crash with GRID neither until that last path that added touch support. What a total waste of a game - Bugs after bugs, fix one thing, break several more...
  2. There were a lot of us from our RaceNet team online yesterday, racing with members from GRT. Some great online racing took place, clean (mostly!) with some good driving lines. Take a look: http://www.geekl33tgamer.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=26 There's a YouTube video and the Full HD source file above - Sorry, I tried posting the YouTube video directly but it's blocked in some country's unfortunately. If it is blocked, you'll need to download the MP4 from the link above to watch instead. Thanks to everyone who was online yesterday to capture this. This is my first video like this so please let me know what you think. Finally, for those that keep on asking me when I make videos, the background track used is Republica - Ready To Go. The videos I upload are all captured full-frame at 60Mb/Sec via Nvidia ShadowPlay and edited with various effects, layers and custom transitions in Adobe Premier Professional CS6.

    Crazy lap time bug in GRID Autosport

    It only happens online actually - I'll set interval times (as you can see in the vid) where it will say I'm 1st or 2nd, cross the line and nope, nowhere close to what the game is estimating. Like I said above, it's technically broken. The -29 second split time on lap 3 is a good example.
  4. Watch from lap 2 onwards, where my lap times at intervals when they show up, don't actually have any reflection on where I actually come on the leader board to the top left. At one point on lap 3, I'm apparently 29 seconds up on the leader, but finish 8th overall! http://www.geekl33tgamer.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=25 Anyone else seen this happen? Made it hard to tell if I was winning or loosing (obv the 29 second bit was blatently wrong).

    Nice, thank you. The club rank just broke the top 70 this morning. Lets keep on moving on up... :-D
  6. The video is not supposed to be about my driving skill (which is entirely subjective anyway), it's about the more aggressive nature of the A.I drivers giving you the squeeze if you get a bit aggressive (which you'll need to do sooner or later to actually win). They are a lot more aggressive than the GRID 2 A.I. Cars. I had the difficulty ramped up, and was driving that car as hard as I could. I wasn't perfect, but never claimed to be. I hit most apexes and wasn't crashing into everything. Some people...
  7. I made a video showing how tight the pack of A.I drivers will push and "hold on" to the back of your car on hard difficulty settings. It make's for an intense race as you seemingly can't make a mistake or they will all overtake you. The video also highlights how pretty the game looks. I set everything to Ultra and installed the Texture Pack.

    Hello Codies...!

    Thanks - I've managed to rack up 39 hours since it come out last week and it's a nice racer game overall. It is a lot better to drive than GRID 2 any day. Such a shame multiplayer for it is quiet a lot of the time... :-(

    Hello Codies...!

    Having played games since the TOCA and Race Driver days, I have never actually bothered with the forums for these games, lol. I'm currently burning many hours up in GRID Autosport, and can't understand why it's getting so much stick. I guess everyone expects different things from it. Either way, I'll stick at it and pop by these forums more frequently. Join me online by following the details in my signature, or searching for this Alias on Steam, Origin and Twitter. :-)

  12. Hi all, In the quest to start a mega-group of dedicated racers, I've created an all new club that's free for anyone to use. We've already got a dedicated bunch of gamers pushing up our RaceNet stats, who are online daily. The RaceNet club is here: https://racenet.codemasters.com/grid-autosport/club/1144/1337-gamer - At the very least, joining is worth it for the bonus XP alone. It doesn't end there though. It's backed up with a website community complete with Forums, TeamSpeak 3 support, Events Section, Competitions and more. Take GRID to the next level, and help set the foundations for a new community racer site. Swing on by www.geekl33tgamer.co.uk to register on our forums and watch the site evolve in the coming weeks - See you on the GRID...
