  1. True...Last Indycar game was 2003 by Codemasters... Actually, the last IndyCar game by Codemasters was called "IndyCar Series 2005" according to the box it was released in 2004! This PS2 game was stunning and I loved it but it was let down by the fact that there where no road tracks in the series such as the famous "IndyCar" tracks Watkins Glen, and Laguna Seca! Also strangely for Codemasters when that question was raised by many people (shortly after its release) they actually made a statement to the effect that the "IndyCar series" did not in fact run on road circuits! Odd that they re
  2. A funny thing has happened.  I just noticed that for the last 1-2 mos the only racing games I have been playing are the ones made by CM.  Dirt 3, F1 2013 & GAS.  I recently reread carefully the posts by Santarini about the AI and am giving them even more room to see if they act like gentleman during the races.  I'll get back to you all.  Currently on season 64 in the career mode.
  3. I know this comment was intended as a tongue in cheek type of thing.  I have lost count the number of times I've tried to run a lobby only to literally wait for the cows to come home.  Then to jump into a room and watch the race timer count the seconds for a race to end while picking my butt (always after I've finished picking my nose though).  It was nice to race with you finally last week.  In this great big world of how many billions (of only 5 or so still play GAS) of people you'd think I could find someone to race with without having to build up my FL first for races
  4. CM along with other game developers build in replay obsolescence into their games.  For example:  When trying to run a multiplayer public lobby you have to wait for a 2nd player to enter otherwise you could sit there for literally hours if not forever for a race to start.  And that means no in game credits to buy additional cars, etc.  After most racing games of 3-6 mos. , the lobbies with multiple drivers are few and far between.  Just in time for the developers etc. to come out with another game for us to spend our hard earned money on. One of the n
  5. Too often we complain about what is wrong with a game.  I am no different.  My criticism of Grid Autosport is well documented in these threads.  But I would like to take the time to praise CM for their two other games I have purchased within the last 1 ½ years. First was Dirt 2 and then Dirt 3 about 6 mos. ago.  Both satisfy my off road yearnings that were developed during my Gran Turismo 1,2,3,4 days.  Surprisingly the AI does not in any way act like the drunken morons they do in GAS.  I suspect my opinions would not change even if I paid full price fo

  8. I don't think we know what you are talking about.  What is "dustup"?
  9. My experience in a lobby last week. https://youtu.be/Sh8JODtAMhc 
  10. Unfortunately, there will be no new Codemasters game in my future.  Being burned by fire (GAS) has forced me to think very hard at throwing good money after bad.  Glitches aside, I consider myself a clean racer and yet I have to disable the damage portion of the career structure in order to run a race series.  Include damage in a game and not enable pit stops!!!!  What were the programmers smoking or drinking when they decided this.  The AI (and I've driven in 54 seasons) act like BCM's (bumper car monkeys).  I recently bought and am playing Race Pro.  A
  11. Lvl 10 across the board in all disciplines.  Season 58.  About 570 + races.  Mostly on Medium diff.
  12. But be aware you could wait until you are my age before somebody jumps in to run a race with you.  Depending on the time of day, it could be a very long time indeed.
  13. Ahhh.  The dreaded T1 carnage strikes again.
