  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.
  14. Yes, Forza's clean lap rule has allowed me many times to finish higher on the leaderboards than the lazy, dirty speedsters.
  15. Forza also has the ability to put in a race title.  I often do this by doing a "RL Clean Sim" title.  Then people know what they are getting.  Unfortunately with GAS this option is not avail that I know of.
  16. Could you explain.  I'm currently into season 52 and a level 9-10 across the disciplines.  What is Platinum? Platinum, as in the trophy for PSN. Gotcha.  I'm on the 360.  So I'll check out my side.  Thanks
  17.  Have you discovered "Custom Cup"   You can make your own lobby, and play by your own rules,  if anyone joins who you dont like, or dont want in your lobby, you can simply kick them out.  Happy days.   We had a problem with a guy whose GT started with Milk a while back.  We just put in damage, championship standings reversed and took out the flashbacks.  The guy left soon after to troll somewhere else.  lol.

  19. You are a better person than me.  Restarts ruin the flow of a game for me.
  20. GT on Xbox 360 is the same as here.  I'll run slow and clean with you all night.
  21. After trying to grind out the challenges about 2 months ago I decided to do what I do best.  Sit back and just enjoy the game for itself.  I've always enjoyed the sim part of games, ie. damage and living with the consequences of those actions.  So I have been just driving and trying the challenges with no more than 1-3 tries per challenge and not trying to fit my car into a space between two cars the size of a breadbox (unless that said car was the size of a loaf of bread).  Some times I gold, silver etc.  Once in a blue moon I even grab a platinum.  On the party
  22. Pick up PGR4 for the Xbox 360.  It's dirt cheap.  Not DIRT.  lol.  In the States you can find it for less than 2 dollars.  Has all the Ring tracks (forward & backward and you can throw in the weather elements too.  Just played it again last nite.
  23. Because you really suck.  Just kidding.  I felt that way at first too.  It is probably just as the second post in this thread explained.  I just forgot about it and enjoyed the game.  I'm into season 50 or so.
