    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.

    Still an angry elf. Bingo. I didn't think saying "No" would be so hard to understand. Oh, well isn't that a nice way of asking like a petulant, entitled, selfish child. This is the question I ask my brother to get me another charge cable he lost. He gave it to me as a Christmas present 6 months later. I full-heartily disagree. He said "Unless I'm mistaken, the beta guys have access." I said he was mistaken. The logical thought process should lead you to think "Oh, they don't have access since I was mistaken." Then he asked if I could say anything else about it and I answered truthfully. "No." There's also the possibility that even if I did know anything, I wouldn't be able to say anything anyways. Either way, somehow SkyRex understood it completely. Considering we signed legal documents of standard affair NDA's, yeah. Just for future reference, we Beta testers haven't really had any news or special builds since release. We got a heads up on things like the Steelbook version, some of the DLC plans, a very particular bugfix... nothing major, but it was also said to be kept quiet about. Unfortunately, no. We haven't been given anything good in months. We got a hint that season 3 would probably be coming, but not any of the details. Though figuring out that they were going to port/remake all the DR1 tracks wasn't that big a leap in logic. Scratch that, let's pretend like there is something hidden there. Might spark some fun.

    You're an angry elf.

    I'm a beta tester, and no I can't tell you anything about it. But thanks for assuming me a troll.

    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.

    I find it pretty quick, and it's not clunky at all, but whatever. Different opinions I suppose. Everyone who's tried my Fanatec shifter has really liked it. Also it seems more representative of what's actually used instead of a teeny little thing.

    Wait, you don't like the Fanatec shifter and told Fanatec, or CM? I think the Fanatec shifter is the best out of the "cheaper" options. It's a seamless transition from h-pattern to sequential. And it's not muscle breaking if you loosen it up, which is also very easy. I have mine feeling about the same as my actual car. The only thing I don't like is the SQ has a lot more tension than the h-pattern, which again you could adjust on the fly, but when all you're really doing is pushing forwards and pulling back it's not a big deal. The Heusinkveld is more expensive and does less being only a SQ, but it is smaller and probably a lot lighter. Reading their webpage it seems to boast about using a ball spring detent for "authentic" feel complete with a useless little graph. That's not particularly impressive. I'm basically just very unsure why exactly it costs so much. Why does everyone think that with 900 you use the full lock to lock all the time? Minus hairpins if you go for a sick drift you never really go much more than 180 degrees in either direction, and that's if you're taking a hairpin normally. Are you guys on low rotation just slamming the hell out of lock to lock all the time? Games feel way more natural and comparable when you use a rotation that matches actuality.

    The solution is simple. Buy a shifter. Flappy paddles suck anyways. He's got a full rig. Going to suck playing anything else with an F1 wheel though. Especially if he ever wants to try drifting.

    Just out of sheer curiosity, is Dirt Rally being delisted from sale? Every previous CM game went free just before being pulled from stores, and DR has now gone free on Humble and Steam.

    Huge difference = small number What is this? Math?

    I already had it on PC. I voted to send it to tbstetst and a couple people followed suit, so they sent him one too. So HA! I AM INDEED BETTER THAN YOU! Oh man, now I feel like everyone's just going to downvote all my posts now. I came in right at the tail end of Lee so never really interfaced with him, and I kept off the gossip thread for the first month or two. Feel like I've missed out, but I did find out I've been on this thread since at least something like page 250. Ehh, pretend it's like real life and your co-driver just missed that call. A sock full of batteries will be waiting for him after the race.

    Probably. Happens in real life too. Also, when I do look at whoever downvotes me, 90% of the time it's someone with only a few posts. Haha, there's a podcast called "Please Stop Talking" where the guys just get drunk and tell stories. One of them is French-Canadian and every story just ends up being how terrible he or the other French Canadians are as human beings. Edit* Holy ****, I've been here for a long time. I forgot that back in 2016 I was the first to vote for getting @tbtstt a free PS4 copy of Dirt Rally, since he was drooling all over us PC guys during the EA. You're still welcome Steve. They sent out an extra free copy just for you. And wow, Chu-chu was around too. Guess he's just not very active.

    I don't think anything really carried over from the old forums, especially considering there's new "flags" now. I have no idea how member reputation works, or why mine is so low, but whatever. Haha, I have 3,500 posts, chu-chu has 500, pretty sure he talks a lot of ****, and has the same member rep as me. I'll take that with pride. Biggest, most disliked member.

    And I prove my point by chukonoku disliking my post. Nice. Reminds me when I worked at a restaurant and there was like 5 Chris's and 2 of them had the same last name. "You know where Chris is?" "Which one?" "The Waiter." "...which one?"

    Pretty sure I'm still the one with the most downvotes per posts, so I got that going for me. In fact, at least 4 people didn't like the fact that I don't love the new BMW. And now that I just looked at it, you can no longer go through and see what posts have been flagged by others like you could on the old forum. You can see all your recent notifications, but that won't even take you to the comment. Cool. I like literally nothing about the new forum, but at least they fixed the loading times.

    Well you can always do the custom championships n stuff. It's not like The Crew, which is always online requirements for literally anything, so whenever Ubi decides to shut down the servers, unless they remove that requirement, that game is dead and gone forever.

    Yeah, isn't it great when single player content is behind server side issues?

    Real nice. I'm questioning if I've posted anything of a similar length. I mean, not including a bunch of quotes, or Porkhammers slightly amusing Bruce Willis picture. Not my fault he can't take a joke. Besides, that co-driver deserved it. Also, I don't think I've 100% anything, not in terms of "achievements" because they don't do anything in-game.

    I'm a tester. Mine was 9gb. I complained about it.
