  1. W10 spring 2019 update? Press windows key, type setting name, click. Easiest & fastest W o/s yet. (W8 was total junk!)

    Welcome to the new GRID

    I sincerely hope that lag issues such as the horizontal phantom car suddenly appearing in front of you is a distant memory! Have Codies planned how to adjust their servers this time around to reduce the impact of high ping players still using dial-up internet to play and ruin the experience for the rest of us?

    FINALLY, GRID 2019!

    I can hear my gpu groaning already 😁
  4. If mod positions are to be limited numbers, I humbly suggest a shortlist of applicants is drawn up and that the rest of us forumsters are allowed to vote in a community poll as to who we'd like to moderate our forums.

    Goodbye :)

    See ya Ben, and good luck with your next posting.  Try and keep up the good fight where ever you end up!
  6. Any chance next update of an "off " toggle in the pre-race menu assist options to disable the "limited throttle input" assist for staging please? "In GRID Autosport, we’ve limited the throttle input during this phase to make positioning the vehicle easier."  Granted, however... "...you can actually set off before the green light even comes on, and therefore have a rolling start by the time it actually does!" I'm finding shallow staging near impossible on gamepad analogue trigger due to the sudden transition of "limited throttle input" to normal throttle.  If I wish to creep a little further forwards and adjust to a deep stage, or go for a 'reaction rolling start' I frequently can't as the "limited throttle input" will have randomly disengaged and it's warp speed ahead for a DQ.  I have managed a few holeshot wins, but it's near impossible due to this throttle assist on/off transition.  Appreciated.
  7.  I'll dust off my blonde wig, spotty frock, fishnets and stillettos in anticipation of the Steam update. ;) edit: arrrgh, just read to end of the blog; When does it Release? Tuesday 14th October – North America :\ Wednesday 15th October – Europe :'(

    Drag Pack speculations.

    Any day now and the Beasts are here!  (Potentially with rear view mirrors too!)

    Haha, thank you.  I hope you didn't think i'd bother to read any further than this?  I can't believe you wrote so much again.  I hope it gets an audience this time.  :D

    Scottish Independence Referendum

    I lost a bet and now owe a Glaswegian gadgie a battered mars bar next time i'm up that way!  Stunned the Nay's had it frankly.  I was looking forward to going back to saying I lived in Great Britain rather than the UK, it just sounds more upbeat.  Same as all my Jock friends were looking fwd to residing in Scotland rather than the prissy "United Kingdom" too.

    We had 73 miles of Hadrian's Wall built post wars as a lasting testament.

    Matchmaking Still Not Fixed?

    Disappointed to hear that.  Coincidentally i've raced with more US & Japan players this last week than at any other time previously, i'd hoped it was better.  :\

    AI drivers

    So to paraphrase uec397 "Oh no - aggressive AI !!  I can't win each and every single race I enter, sniff.  Whereas if it were a sim i'd fully expect to be able to overtake with ease, and win every single time, sniff, this is a bad, bad, arcade game, boo hoo, sniff.  Beaten by a racing arcade game that lasts a bit longer than a few hours to win everything, the shame... sniff.  Every other game game I ever played had 100% perfect AI, I... I... I... I just don't get it, sniff." :'( Funniest mewling rant i've read in ages, and i've read loads on steam.  Well written, thanks for brightening my day, have this tissue. ps - you don't state what AI difficulty you're ranting about?  particular disciplines, vehicles?  whether you try and overtake in braking zones, outside / inside bends, long straights whilst slipstreaming etc not a lot to provoke constructive comments frankly.  'Issues with everything' is just a tad too vague matey.
  15. Anyway... Well done guys for winning something!   :D   Nice to see some of the shiny loot going to known forum members here.   (- even it isn't quite what you wanted/expected!?)
