  1. At short notice or in three weeks, room for one more (maybe)? I'm in the same camp as Meers with PC hardware (several generations older CPU; similar, albeit desktop GPU and a lower res) with added physical restrictions. But I managed to turn a lap for the first time in a long time... a long time after I paid a rare visit to Discussion and noticed this thread and the race and wheel ones the other day! I'm trying to remember and find ready-made control alternatives or think up adaptations with wheels and hand controls (which will need a new/good used wheel... if I can tu
  2. Not that it matters in the grand scheme but that quoted text isn't from Jeff. As the gilesgoat tag suggests and the style of writing backs up, it's from his partner, Giles. In addition to the wording, anyone that's seen his posts on YakYak will quickly recognise the way quotation marks reflect how Giles puts emphasis in his forum posts. I'm glad to see things confirmed anyway. I had no idea what stage Tempest 4000 had reached on any platform and had a 'Wait a minute...' moment when I watched the video last night. It seemed an odd appearance after all of the linking to e
  3. Yeah, all true — except for the first reply in the thread by @Blu3Flame, which says: I think that final Ecco sequence took me months to beat and just to make it worse, that one time I did was so easy!
  4. Surely the launch for the announcement of a series of social media posts that get the World ready for AMAZING news of a future release of the video (after it's been uploaded from a phone had the 'Hollywood touch' and been ground into small parts that ultimately show nothing everything at its finest)?! [Date to be delayed confirmed.]
  5. That's given me cheer. Thank you.
  6. Right down — up?! — to the height, you could be me, Nathan! Are the special moves anything like the Street Fighter type of combo or very simplistic? That's always given me pause for thought as I can't really do much beyond the odd button press or two. The simpler, the better really. I don't need to be good at the game and I'd be happy enough if I could still have a laugh from simple moves and proximity-based variants or specials. Anything Sensi-style would be fine with me!
  7. Do you know if the supply is okay, King? For a while, I thought my 360 wheel was broken or that its 'bodge' at feedback wasn't anything like old reviews had said. The PSU from my earlier PC wheel fixed all that despite the numbers on the third-party unit looking correct and it did a reasonable, if noisy job of suggesting what a car was doing. Just to eliminate another possibility, as odd as it may seem, I've also found USB 2.0 to be more compatible with my wheel. Depending on the game, it was iffy with a 360 pad at times too. Though it could be a quirk of my system,
  8. The Logitech supply for an older wheel of mine has the second set of figures on it. I don't know the output on a junk PSU that came with a similar wheel for the 360 but only the 24V/0.75A Logitech one results in feedback.
  9. That was going to be my question! I don't have a modern console and have seen no more than race footage on YouTube as a result. I've loved catching up in the thread for the pics as much as the opinions. However you've produced them, U-1, they're wonderful.
  10. Just posted that in Bargains... and then came to the thread! D'oh! Anyway, I'm in now too. I'll be back to moan at y'all if it's not up to scratch!
  11. I can't comment on how it's been with the consoles but what's frustrated me is that for the longest time during development it just worked! Though I've not bothered for months, it felt like I had to start fixing the controls again whenever returning to it following time with other sims. Even after using 'just right' settings that caused me to be positive here about CARS ahead of its release! A lot of that depended on the car too but I'd find myself floundering with the steering even desperately trying modern cars with traction control or whatever. Whether new or ver
  12. I wish it was all of the time from everyone at the moment but I was going to ask if you had anything planned. I'll PM you. [Edit] Mods, could Lorf's post with the video be copied at least to a new thread in Discussion so that it can be seen more?
  13. Do it, kiro. Back to 2015, I've been watching F1 less and less since early in the last decade and care sadly little for most of the circus in this era. There's a better world for me in bikes, Endurance, GT, V8s, DTM and the tech, sights, sounds, racing personalities and attitudes in some of those but I've always looked forward to your round-ups, Bob. Typos 'n' all, they've been fantastically entertaining year after year. Wouldn't have changed a thing! It's not often I get a chance, so I just wanted to jump in and say... thank you. Enjoy the racing!
