    Button Box

    Thanks Lakrits. I will have a closer look at this against the cost of a programmable button box as my original idea has crashed and burned. When I went to download HID Macros I found that it has been replaced by a newer programme called Lua Macros. The problem for me is that HID Macros had a simple GUI for programming the buttons where with Lua you have to type everything in in code which, to a simple soul like me, seems a backward step.

    Button Box

    Hi Zampa. Great idea. I set about looking for a programmable numerical keypad (as I couldn't find one with a 'space bar' key) and this is where I ran into trouble. They seem to be quite rare beasts unless you are looking to spend a lot of money. I finally came up what seems to be a solution - a free programme called 'HID Macros' which allows you to re-programme keypad buttons. I need to do a little more research but - thanks to you - it looks like a £10 wireless keypad plus free programming software might do the trick!

    Button Box

    Hi all. Just some advice please. I am thinking of getting a button box and wondered if anyone could recommend one? It would only be for use in racing sims and wouldn't need to be overly complicated - maybe 16 or so functions.
  4. Just before 11am (UK time) I checked the qualifying times for this weekend's Classic GP Event (to see how near the bottom I am ) and I noticed that the next two races were in 2 and 3 hours time (1 and 2pm UK). I am guessing that these are the start of the races in Europe so as there were already 64 results on the leaderboard it just made me wonder at what time the first race is run and where?

    Stacked pit stop

    So I am competing in this weekend's multiplayer event and after the usual mayhem at the first corner at Bahrain I am catching the guy in front. I have the gap down to 1 second and we both pit on the same lap. He pulls into his pit.......and I am stacked behind him!!! WT*!!! I end up losing over 12 seconds to him which I could only get down to 6 over the rest of the race. Since when have we had 'team mates' in weekend events and had to 'share' a pit box?
  6. Just gone back and tried again. Game loaded as it should. I didn't do anything other than run the game again so whatever has been done seems to have done the trick.
  7. Hi all, I've been stuck on this message for the past 3 hours now. Anyone else having this issue? No problems yesterday and I have re-booted my router, given up on F1 and played Star Wars Squadrons via Oculus for an hour without any issues, gone back to F1 just to hang on the same message.
  8. Same here. Seeing as it is happening to (at least) two of us I guess it is an issue with the servers.....not at our end.
  9. OK, so I entered my best Mercedes Austria Time Trial lap (1:05.937 - using a Tom97 setup) and this gives me a difficulty of 84. When I go to race, however, I will be in my Season 1 car which obviously is near the bottom of the development chart. Won't being in my own team car (as opposed to being in an all singing all dancing Mercedes) have an effect on my level of competitiveness? On the other hand, I have spent time building up data at Barcelona (driving as Perez) and 65 is the level which puts me close to Stroll. Adding the Austria 'offset' of +6 therefore suggests an AI level of 71.
  10. HI krz9. As someone who has never used an AI calculator before can you just confirm I am reading it correctly. If I go to your site and select Austria it shows an average difficulty of 96 and an average lap time of 1m 08.6564s. Does this mean that if my PB is 1m 08.6xx I should be setting the AI difficulty to 96? But what if my PB is 1m 09.6xx or 1m 07.6xx? How do I calculate what the AI needs to be set at? Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.
  11. Watching the video and not seeing any hand/steering wheel movement is weird!!!
  12. I have to agree. I selected the McLaren MP4 13 for this weekend's event and the first time I drove it I couldn't put 3 corners together. As it is now, after more than 70 laps practicing, I think I am still losing up to a second a lap because I have to be sooooo gentle putting on the power after a corner. I have no doubt if I was a Jedi Master in the black art of creating setups I might get somewhere but I don't have that skill and have exhausted the usual options of anti-roll bar/diff power lock/rear springs.
