  1. Myself (and twin brother Shaky Burn on here) will be 50 on Saturday, we have been into video games all our lives…. It started when we first visited an arcade at Pontins in like 1976/77 and then got an Atari 2600, the rest is history. We play co-op games mainly, FPS, Fifa, and racing sims, but tend to pick up most of the recent releases. 

    I have spent more money on gaming than anything else in my life (beer might be a close second) and don’t regret a single penny and other than watching sport not sure what else I would have done with all those hours ???


    I Think we are both happy enough

    Well up for a bit of Daytona. Can you still buy it?

    You can still buy it, not via your Xbox tho as it shows as unavailable. You have to search the 360 Xbox live marketplace and can get it from there. I bought it last month for £6.99, it’s a fantastic port!




    it works with racing wheels as well but not full force feedback.


    edit: I am playing it on series X and it’s very smooth, no frame hitches at all

  3. The haptic triggers work great with Ride 4 and MXGP 2020, when braking you get a bite point half way through the trigger pull, which is just before you lock up. It works really well and I presume will be implemented on many driving games going forward.


  4. Microsoft store just took the money for my series X, ordered when they first became available. Just in case you have been concerned, as I have, that the order has just been in pending status :-)

  5. Morning all


    If somebody could  answer the following it would be much appreciated :-


    forza 6, I tried to set up a private match but it kept returning an error ‘unable to allocate server’? Is the online still available? 

    Also the reason I wanted to set up a private match is so that my brother and I can race the ai together (online), is this possible as I was disappointed to see they dropped the feature in Forza 7?


    thanks in advance

    Just tried searching for it and it’s not coming up :/ 


    I’ve set up one called Motherllmukers if anyone wants to join, or I’ll decamp and join another one if anyone sets a different one up.

    Sorry mate, due to a lack of interest I joined another clan so had to disband the original, will amend my original post.


    Ignore below :- clan disbanded 




    I have an Xbox clan going its :-

    Trok Burns


    Just me and my brother (Shaky Burn)at the moment.... feel free to join and I will approve you and add you so you can invite your friends. 


    Your welcome to play with us but if you just want to play on your own or with your own friends that’s fine. I believe we all benefit from the shared spoils?


    An added benefit of being in a clan is that the text above a clan member is in yellow so stands out if you are playing coop with a friend.

    Is this game better with a wheel is it more arcadey like, say Need For Speed?


    Already have an awesome stand and wheel for the PS4 but would buy a wheel for the Xbox if it compliments FH4.


    To allow you to use your playstation wheel on xbox....obviously check yours is supported, most are i believe!


    I bought a drivehub last month, it works fine with the xbox on forza 7 and other games, not all the buttons work on a Thrustmaster T150 but enough to get by. Currently playing f1 2018 on xbox x on the wheel and it plays great.


    buy it from here https://collectiveminds.ca/shop/allconsoles/drivehub/

    its sent from within the UK so no import tax. Use code GTPLANET10 at checkout to bring it down to £80, i got it 3 days after ordering.

    Career is a bit overrated anyway really...


    Then proceed to do 200 races with faster and faster cars and more and more laps.


    The info that you get in a typical career is mostly kept in the museum but yeah...they could have tied it in better - then you might actually read that info whilst the track was loading rather then just not bothering.




    Hello Dimahoo


    I dont have the game in front of me but i am sure i have saved arcade races and career test/races. If the save replay option is not in the top left area then click exit once and you should now have the replay option (on the screen where you can restart, move onto the next challenge etc), start replay and hit the red record button in there. 


    I think thats right. Have a look at my profile I have uploaded arcade and test races i think.

  10. In the settings you can configure the dpad (or any buttons) to adjust the in car view, so you can go nearer/further to the dash and up and down, also side to side if you want......


    These buttons are not set as default, so just have a look at your controls and it is listed as unassigned VR head up, down etc...


    Been playing pretty much all day, no sickness, but not yet had any VR sickness and i have played most VR games, just lucky. 


    This is the standout game for me tho. With a wheel and Playseat it is just an amazing experience, bravo Codies, thanks very much.

  11. Using a T150 and Playseat.


    Its great fun in VR, graphics are good (enough), a little blurry like all VR but an improvement on DC, i'm on the PS4 Pro. Just took a Escort Cosworth through the forests of wales, amazing fun, it was lashing down as well. Yep, no backs to the cars that you can see, not like you have time to look backwards anyway. I did sideswipe a gate with the backend of my car and there was impact so it is 'there'.


    Also, done some rally cross and was competitive, so once you are settled in VR you can be on the pace with others who i presume may not be in VR?


    Verdict = stunning

    same telly as me.

    it's a 2015 model. Samsung UE40JU6000 or something. It is a 4K UHD screen. I can't help but feel I need some serious tweaking with my picture. I don't suppose anyone is clued up with the Samsung 6000 series picture settings? 


    I have a Samsung, have you enabled UHD from the tv menu?


    on your tv, goto


    menu>picture>picture options>hdmi uhd colour. Then switch on the hdmi port that your ps4 is attached to, you then need to turn the tv on then off. Hopefully, that should solve it. Assuming you have not already enabled uhd on that hdmi port before!


    as for Hdr, as mentioned previous, the PSVR passthrough box is not HDR compatible. I would suggest you plug the Ps4 hdmi straight to the tv for now and remove psvr from the loop. You should then get 4k and hdr. 


    Hope this helps.


    Also, some helpful info at the bottom of this link in the Q&A on this paticular tv JU6000 it seems UHD is only available on hdmi 1



  13. As my first VR experience I am blown away. Just done the shark dive and the head pong games and its just amazing, the scale of everything is what blows you away. Got my wife to try the shark dive and she screamed near the end and could not complete it. She has no interest in games at all, quite the opposite but she had to admit it was pretty impressive which is high praise indeed. The kids are just trying the VR playroom and loving it.


    I have got loads of games to get stuck into eve, dc, rez, battlezone, cant wait....  No buyers remorse here.

    Been a bit in an out of the thread but did you get a steering wheel in the end? if so what did you think?
