  1. WOW , never seen such a cool vid, might even make me buy the game,,,,, again,, :classic_blink:


    Seriously tho, I refunded (ultimate) after 10 mins of play back in October-ish.

    I have now successfully set up dual boot 10 (***'n hate it) on my home rig but having not played AS for 6 months and started again (win 7), ,, its a blast :classic_cool:  and busy every night.

    Not sure to get 2019 again, seems kinda... deadish .... Illwait for whatever next it is, pcars-codies or summat?.

    Wow dude nice to see you here what you been upto? Pre-ordered myself but I think you should take a look at the graphics discussion thread.

    Theres a LOT of concerns being displayed and very few answers, just fnboys saying "have some faith" or "Stop bashing the devs!"..... sigh...

    Hope to see you on track but it might be short lived for me but 2 hours will be enough to find out if it's still got cardboard cutouts in the deep background that utterly ruin the immersion...

    Personally I'm looking forward to finding out if I'll be chasing a refund or not. Hopefully NOT but given Codies decisions over recent years I'm 60-40 in favour of that refund atm given the "quality" seen so far....

    Was GAS for a long time but got a little tired and into COD ww2 atm. Truth be I always turn down the graphics myself to the smoothest overall ingame experience. The crowd always gets turned off anyways, I cant stand the distraction. As long as its not a Grid 2  drift fest Ill probably like it ... ... ... when I get round to dualing win 10 on my main rig :classic_wacko:.

  3. I've got to dual install win10 (still on Win7) or build a new rig to actually play this though I preordered soon after announcement. :classic_laugh:

    Hope you guys hype me into gettin my ass in gear after release and get me doing something LOL.

    It does look good though :classic_smile:

  4. One thing I've noticed with a few of these preview videos is whiteout track glare. I consider it dangerous to drive in these circumstances without a decent set of polaroid :classic_cool: sunglasses, will these be available as a dlc or can we equip with :classic_cool: them from the off ? :classic_cool:


    Seriously though I hope there is some graphic settings to reduce the saturation glare levels.


    Decent polaroids would have that track as black as the day it was laid.

  5. Its always a new game that forced me to use a new OS, Id still be on Win2k if the games worked on it. That said I'm very late to an OS and dont get full value cos they get dropped by MS a few years after I join.

    Win2k,  XP,  7.............suppose I have to put 10 on my main rig.

    I put 10 on my work rig a couple of months ago and it can be made to look and behave like 7 (majorgeeks), and  I've always used classic windows theme, never any XP or 10 look.


    Here is classic shell on Win 10, looks like win2k 🙂

  6. It may sound a bit bizarre but I would like the option in a custom setup race to include no disqualification for stopping or driving backwards, an "Anything Goes" "Stats Off" lobby, why? because in the original grid I liked to join games with known crashers (as they become known) and really enjoy outwitting them. It was a great way to unwind and have a non serious time racing.

    They liked crashing and I liked beating them :)

    And all tracks all cars would be welcome too.

  7. Ive never used the game settings for any of my wheels and pedals, I have always set them through the custom section.
    I find it a more reliable way of getting them set. I did try the in game setting for my current  Fanatec V2 but the game just spazzed out with constant scrolling which was quite difficult to get back from.

  8. Most of all it should be supported and patched better than GAS was e.g. upgrades STILL do nothing to car performance no matter WHAT the stats claim. We were promised a fix was coming but Noooooo. 

    Are you sure upgrades do nothing to any cars?. Ive started again online with all stock loan cars and there definately seem to be some cars that are just faster than mine which I cant catch even with a good tow so I have to settle back and take a position.
    It is more the touring class that I can see as the other standard cars are very good at holding a position.
    Do you need upgrades for the tuning unlocks to work? or do the unlocks enable tuning?.
    I am only using loan cars.

    Yea the problem seems to be that the forces are reversed for the entire right side, so when turning left the forces are correct. Really weird problem, I hope they fix it quick, as it's unplayable until then. :(
    Wouldn't say unplayable, just unset ffb and increase centering on the wheel, takes a bit of getting used to but you can play, though the steering does feel a bit loose and wandery, just like a Cortina Mk1 steering box lol.

  10. As far as I can see the whole MP system is buggered as all I get is 2 sessions (if  I'm lucky).

    Even when selecting different disciplines all I get at most is 2 sessions, more often than not one of these sessions is a "Dead session" i,e, it no longer exists, this has been happening more and more frequently!

    So are Codies EVER gonna get this game to work properly?

    Highly unlikely imo...... Especially when it seems as though every patch screws up some other function!

    I get the same thing usually after the disconnect-'you are not connected to steam' cr4p, but now I get only 2 sessions showing when I start steam fresh and start the game through steam. It is not good...........
