    What you want to see from GRID

    GRID Autosport confirmed cars/tracks/features

    Especially Lamborghini, as the Murci is such a big deal in GRID (2008).  Can't buy a Porsche in GRID, but it is available in some of the Driver Offers driving for other teams.  That leaves Ferrari.  I don't miss them, but would like to see the other two in GRID A if it's at all feasible.

    Flashbacks......AGAIN

    It's 54/64. I don't use Flashbacks; would rather use Restart.  But this is pretty sloppy.  "84% of online players in the forum think it best not to have Flashbacks online."  - Doesn't compute.  The per cent is correct as far as poll respondents go, but it's a very large and unwarranted leap to apply the results to all online players in the forum.  May be a fair representation, or not, but this poll doesn't warrant the conclusion here.  The total number of online players in the forum hasn't even been established. Are you tired, Purp? :-S Frank PC/keyboard, offline single player/

    I think he's defending the BoG.  He and Rastus do it so well and with such vigor that the rest of us can just sit back.  Thanks guys. On another note, wouldn't it be "race over" for anyone who pits in a 40 minute race?  DNF avoided, I guess. Frank

    Autosport Corner Cutting

    How about penalties for the online game, but the GRID consequences in lieu of penalties in the career game? Frank

    GRID Autosport confirmed cars/tracks/features

    Whenever I try to drift in GRID the thought hovers uncalled in the middle of my head that I'm trying to control chaos.  Doesn't usually work, but I love having unmet challenges in a game. Frank

    Could there be oval tracks?

    A little oval racing isn't bad.  It worked as a decent change of pace in NFS ProStreet.  But as a major part of the career game - not for me, thanks.  Plenty of other places to go for that. Frank

    Autosport Corner Cutting

    Yep.  Sounds like a big improvement, but I still very much prefer the original GRID penalties:  no official penalties, just natural consequences to cutting, like loss of traction in grass, dirt, gravel, kitty litter - or rocks, holes, various obstructions, etc. Nice feedback/feedback, though.  Thanks. Frank (the new guy)

    "Other Frank?"  Hey, you're still The Frank; I'm still the new guy. Fingers crossed on GRID: Autosport.  Probably won't be as long lived for me as GRID, but nothing else is either, and it could be even better than I expect.  Good enough for me, for now anyway.

    Cockpit Mod

    At GRID: Autosport release the cockpit view will be the latest, don't know about the greatest. Gotcha. Frank

    Why no dedicated Formula D / D1GP game, Codies?

    Probably a pretty small market for an all Drift game I would think; a niche within a niche? Frank

    New Forums - Feedback thread

    @ couger1981: My 17 May post referred only to Codies racing forums online since the 2008 GRID release, not the entire Codies forums history.  Thanks for the vBulletin info.  I couldn't recall it, just a mental image of that black background and yellow or white text in the GRID forum.  Never cared much for that color theme, but the forum itself was very active for a long time, helpful, informative, full of ideas for a GRID sequel.

    What you want to see from GRID

    @ Cap Jack: ". . . then you also have detected some merit" Sure have, enough that I want to play the game and that I believe from the evidence at hand that it will be worth the freight.  But there's still room for reservations, criticism and disappointment.  Won't be the perfect GRID sequel of course.  Even GRID has never been perfect, but it is my yardstick.  I'm pretty sure I'll still have criticism of GRID A even while I'm enjoying it, and I'll post the good along with the bad right here (or on the next Codies forum).  For me as a single player the true test is how long I will be playing it.  I have a lot of games, good and bad, that I don't play any more.  Still playing GRID after almost six years.  It will be interesting to see if I continue once I've put some time into GRID A. I believe GRID: Autosport is going to be at least a pretty good game, and maybe a lot better than that - for single players. Frank PC/keyboard, offline single player.

    New Forums - Feedback thread

    This is the third Codies racing games forum since the first GRID release.  The first and second forums were closed not belong before release of the next GRID game.  No provision was made to save, relocate or archive either one. Frank

    Time attack mode in Grid Autosport

    I agree with Workhorse.  That's Time Trial.  In Time Attack you compete against other cars on the track at the same time from a staggered start, rolling or standing.  You race for a specified number of laps and the shortest lap time wins. And Tuners, yes!  It's great fun beating Vipers in a Skyline R34 in GRID. Frank
  17. In the formula one games races can go for 50+ laps, even endurance races in this game are nowhere near that length. Well in grid 1 they had LeMans type race, if that's present in this one it would make since to have pit stops. If they only have short race like WTCC or touring in general I guess yeah you don't really need pit stops. If they offer anything higher than 35 laps, you would definitely need pit stops and if not than I understand. To be honest I am more concern about the cockpit, may be weird for some, but I like quality cockpit, for me this will determine if I make a purchase or not. It's very odd, because the F3 cockpit looks detailed and next to that they show the audi cockpit with zero detail. I wish they made some clarifications. Regarding GRID (2008) and pitstops, there are none that I've ever seen.  The 24 Hours of LeMans in the career is scaled to only 24 minutes long.  You can create longer time scaled endurance races in race day, but as far as I have seen even in the real time 24 Hours there are no pitstops.  Frank PC/keyboard, offline single player (still).

    What you want to see from GRID

    I've got my order in, Cap.  But I'm paying Codies for their product, not their effort or good intentions.  I believe that's how free markets are supposed to work.  Pardon me if I've misunderstood you. Frank

    Cockpit Mod

    Codemasters.

    Autosport Black Edition

    Hey, that looks like a cockpit view even I could use: no dash, nothing but glass.  More to it than that I reckon. Frank, 95%er.

    As long as we're in wild speculation mode, COTA in GRID A would be just dandy, sweet, excellent - and truly mighty fine. Frank

    Austin/COTA?
  23. When I watch a SimBin replay I always spend some time with the camera on the next car behind.  But truthfully, the replays I watch the most are GRID replays - still. Frank PC/keyboard, offline single player.

    I'm getting dizzy from these escalating effects.  Help!
  25. It would be great to have replay saves and camera settings like GTL and other SimBin games with an ability to toggle between that and the highly entertaining GRID replays that I associate with the game.  Not being able to save them has always been a bummer.  Too ambitious to be expected in the new Codies games I guess.
