    So online huh...

    okaaaay, you obviously dont want to, or cant answer my question so ill not ask it anymore. but i think its YOU who are not reading what im writing. I know its risk and reward duh. however, the risks seem to have accumulated to such a high degree, in such a short space of time it renders owning a car more difficult than it praps should be. in the link you offered up, one part reads 'One of the important things we set out to achieve with the multiplayer side of GRID Autosport was to articulate a sense of bond between a driver and their vehicle.' How can i bond with my vehicle, if it becomes too expensive to run after 3 days of racing? Car in q has less than 2000 miles on, yet the loaners have 8000 miles. this should give an indication of how long a car will last....i should have at least another 6k miles to go shouldnt i? anyhoo, if i sell my car [level 55] and buy another new one, it'll be level 0 and require all unlocks to be made again. i also read in another thread, that loore is bringing this point up with cm guys of some sort soon, so there must be some validity here. /thread if you ask me

    Im sorry but that tells us nothing we dont already know. This is why im asking you for your quantified experience above....for comparison with the numbers ive spat out. Now that would be information worthy of posting. [not flaming, just sayin]

    So online huh...

    cheaper cars a no hand holds or hypercars here, yet its still financially unviable for me to run my own chevy cruze in clean races at a profit. How can that not be a game flaw? Perhaps you could quantify your own 'profitable experience' a little more so we can see where we are going wrong? for example, my cruze has all upgrades applied. It also has all the tuning options unlocked to level 3. Im white impact rating. the cruze is level 55 i think. im level 25 in touring discipline [i think it is] when i say clean race, i mean very clean, a private server with friends on teamspeak....who incidentally, suffer the exact same cash flow woes. so could you please provide the same detail level, so that we can see how your costs are being covered? it may uncover a wee nugget of info eh. Thanks in advance 8D

    I have tried bashing random keys on the kb to find # 6, # 17, etc but no luck so far, enter and back does enough to play the game but it would be good to see deeper through some menu's.I'm at work atm so cant try but later Ill try every key on kb to see if there is some function. Same here, cant find some button equivalents on the keyboard. can someone from codemasters tell us what are all the keyboard equivalent keymappings are [even if theyre not re-mappable] @Britpoint mebbbe?
  5. no front runner as i can tell yet....im using the cruze meself, seems ok. its deffo not tail happy likethe beemer is a little

    re the drivers in loaners having no penalty, thats not exactly true, well on pc anyway, as they still have to foot repair costs [you see it in the deductions / winnings screen. but the repair costs are A LOT smaller...but i think the winnings are smaller too. i guess their rating color thing would also be affected.
  7. noticed this on the pc also for the mount panorama challenge. thought id hit the top time, only to be presented with more faster times that were previously not beeing shown.

    lil bit more feedback.....not necessarily negative, but needs a tweak for sure i would say. damage repair costs...they are far too high....they keep you skint and unable to repair your car fully. well, thats the way ive seen it.....to the point, where im now using a loaner car to earn some more serious cash and build a wee buffer so i can fix my own car and go racing tip-top. by the way, the repair charges remain astronomical even for a clean race....no wall hits, no trading paint....so maybe just an over-rev or two....and maybe some brake disc and suspension wear. just now i ran a session with some buds, started with a 100% car [touring cruze] ran 1 race of 3 laps at somewhere like algarve....the car is now down to 78% on all three categories, yet i just had a clean race. The earnings im making from the game and races does not cover a race worth of this minor [but over priced] repair work imo. from memory i think the damage repairwork cost something like 50k, and race earnings were 28k ish anyone else see this kinda thing?

    Ive mentioned this elsewhere but want to mention it again now that im a little further in to playing this game. My main two points of feedback that are negative are 1] The engine sound of the car you are driving is often drowned out by exhaust sounds of cars a wee way away. Plenty of times i loose sight of my engine revs and end up in the wrong gear, bogged down or over revving like hell 2] on about 5 occasions ive been in a server that has ai backfilling yet some of the ai never start the race, they just sit on the grid for the duration. Every time ive seen this the server cannot progress past the end of race results screen. The results screen shows dashes in place of the non-starting ai for their laptime etc. The only way out of this, is to quit. On a more positive note, the grafix are cool. the touring cars are cool, the physics seems great and the online lobby system is.....ok well it aint that great but its passable.

    on two occasions, i have been in an online server, touring class c and after the race has finished, the results screen becomes a permanent feature with no way out, apart from 'quit' On both occasions, static ai cars were seen on the starting grid...like afk'ers.

    I have another small issue relating to key binding. so i use a g27 wheel along with the pedals, but i dont use the shifter...its up in the  loft the useless pos that it is. anywa, i tell GAS that im using g27, i customise certain actions and go racing, go through some menus yaddayadda. Now some menu selections are mapped to g27 buttons that i dont have....theyre on the absent shifter. I want to re-map these keys to my keyboard....did it in grid....grid2 and other games. either i havent found the right place in GAS options to do this re-mapping...or its missing from the game. lil help? ps...hope yall havin fun 8D

    Anyone else thinkin the audio levels are kinda skewed? to be more specific, i  would like to hear my own engine much louder than i can seem to set it. so i have engine level on 100, and all other levels at 50 [which seems to be min for all except speech] Yet im still struggling to hear my own revs over the exhaust of the guy 5 car lengths infront! Ive played with dynamic range and system eq, but neither help the issue. apart from that, its been pretty painless so far.
