    Who exactly are you trying to appease? We're all friends in the Mr. Block hate club. Edit* while I have your attention, does DR2 still show up as practically nothing in your control panel? Mine still has no icon, name, publisher info, size, or version number, despite the multiple updates in Steam. I can't believe it's already been coming up to 2 years now.

    PCSX2 isn't a perfect emulator, and there's a lot of reasons why, primarily PS2 hardware limitations. The PS2 actually kind of sucks, but for whatever reason people made emulators for that instead of the Xbox. A big thing is that everything it does is interlaced, so it's all real fuzzy. Gran Turismo 4 is one of the very few games that supports 480p (As opposed to the norm on Xbox, with The Matrix even actually hitting 1080p) but it resets itself to 480i every time it boots, and in PCSX2 setting it to 480p makes the menus all blurry. Als, when you lose framerate, it doesn't just drop frames, the entire process slows down, so's there a sort of constant speedup and slowdown, especially if your PC isn't current. Midnight Club 3 also has a weird headlight glitch that freezes images. No, he insults the locals, wrecks his cars, murders competitors, and steals theirs.

    Oh, you for sure hate him. Almost as much as me. You just wish when he took that line into a rock it was he who burst into flames so his co-driver could watch HIM burn. Unfortunately the Fates are cruel mistresses and cut down the wrong person instead. Life isn't fair, why do the good die so young, and the incompetent fools with reckless abandon and evil souls continue to live? Holy **** he also hated McRae and his crowning achievement is causing him to crash. Joe Coggings: What is the best moment of your career? That’s a really tough one but one of the most amazing moments of my racing career was racing against Colin McRae and pressuring him in to crashing. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/motorsport/ken-block-answers-your-questions

    On a completely random topic, I've gotten PCSX2 up and running and was playing some old games like Burnout 3, Midnight Club 3, GT4, and Enthusia, and decided to try out my wheel. Enthusia is surprisingly phenomenal. It requires some sort of spring force, which thankfully my wheel has, but after getting the FFB dialed in, it's shockingly good. A real shame it never got a sequel.

    How can I love a man so arrogantly hell-bent on wanton destruction of classic rally cars and his co-drivers?

    Did you just use Mr. The Block as a positive example? No, no no, this simply will not stand. To the gulag with you!

    Welcome to the new GRID

    So did Dirt Showdown.

    Welcome to the new GRID

    I absolutely hate this asinine reason to dislike something because of an optional feature. Don't use it. Problem solved. Next you'll tell me that you can't enjoy the game because someone else played it on an easier difficulty. As to liveries, me personally, I couldn't really care less. So when the forum is full of pages of posts about liveries I just moan and scroll past them. That being said, a lot of the default liveries are quite boring and/or ugly. A lot of them I end up just going for plain white/black/red.

    Oh yeah? Well tell me how ***** isn't family friendly? Not to mention sometimes the censor just breaks. Haha, amazing example. Edit* the censor started to work. **** Please PJ, keep your Fulvia between you and your doctor. *Imagine John Lithgow and Jane Curtin here* Dr. Mary Albright: For future reference: I have a red Volvo. Dr. **** Solomon: Please, Dr. Albright, we barely know each other.

    That's disappointing. I thought maybe I would learn a new word today.

    I don't know what 3 letter word the forum would censor that makes any sense in that context. I understand 4 of those translated words. In completely unrelated topic, @PJTierney could you bother someone on the Grid crew to fix the 21:9 HUD? It's basically just what seems to be regular 16:9, but set to the left. Which is all sorts of wrong.

    Well tell them they did it wrong.

    What bothers me more than the Tesla sized panel gaps is the manufacturer logos that are too big and seem to just barely squeeze in.

    Yeah, you can just add a subsurf to the road, boom, done. Ship the game.

    At least you know what gear you're in.
  16. Your methodology is flawed. There's 2 things at play in these scenarios, 1 is the direct reflection of materials, and another is the Fresnel effect. The Fresnel effect will often give this highly reflective/whiteout appearance. It's not made any better when it's a real time game, so there's lots of little cheats and hacks going on instead of a full path or ray traced render. The PBR is clearly noticeable, so... I'm questioning if you really know what PBR is and how it works.

    Dirt 4 and DR2 use a PBR pipeline, unless the ground has emission shaders in it, it's a mix of being slightly too reflective with exposure issues. Maybe toss bloom in there too. Is it damaged?

    This game doesn't have heat haze. Yes, and no. No and yes. But this game doesn't have it either way. It seems more like an exposure problem than a material problem, though the materials do seem a bit over reflective. 2 weeks of work. But after 3 games, it probably should've been fixed by now.

    So PJ, with your new position, maybe you could ask around and answer my question of exactly who and why they though an echoey moan was a good thing for a racing games main title screen, instead of say... a 1970's porno.

    This week Mr. The block travels to Poland for Arcade Popcorn. He talks **** about Poland and it's car culture, and then goes for the "smoke and syle" contest because he's too **** to do anything better. Speaking of, will GRID have GRID?

    One too many days on the old Fast and Furious arcade machines methinks. Don't you know if you brute slam the shifter you gain .0003 seconds?

    Do you drive an actual car? Outside of moving around around occupied parking lots, how much do you turn the wheel? I mean, even when I race down twisty mountain roads in my actual shitbox I don't go more than 180 in either direction. Guy above me is right, most of it's in the +/-90 range. The only time in game I really go wider than that is drifting in Assetto Corsa, and you just do that by feel more than anything. You shouldn't have to slam lock to lock.
