  1. Gradius 6. Now !! That'd be something. Was playing Gradius V on my old PS2 on Saturday. It's still amazing...
  2. So Rally clubs were added to the game today - I guess like the old leagues we used to run here. Anyone fancy having a go ? I'm absolutely terrible at the game mind - lacking even the rudimentary control I had in Rally 1....
  3. Anyone tried the new feedback patch released today ?
  4. It's en route - I'll do a mini review here once I get it installed and tested.
  5. Jubilee clips !
  6. Hope this works. Ebay links are mind boggling. This is the one I ordered - just took a punt on it - so if you want to wait till I've tried it, I'll post up some impressions from DR 2.0...
  7. I cracked and bought a handbrake (analogue, natch) from fleabay - I couldn't keep the button version within reach during sharp turns. Looking forward to trying DR2 with a proper control set...
  8. Sid - check you've configured the rotation for your wheel - you can compare the in-car wheel to yours for rotation. They should match. If not then your inputs often are massively over or under what feels natural. I also use gears for 'engine braking' when approaching corners, so downshift early. It's a little cheaty I guess, but hey.... Learn the stages a bit will help - 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears are your friends - any more and you're really motoring. Also its all about not 100% throttle, often using the throttle to 'gun' out of corners is effective, although in a RWD, it may not have the intended consequences Use the mini - it's a little more forgiving since the FWD can pull it out or round most things. Don't go 100%. After a few stages it will hopefully all start to 'click'...
  9. I hated the graphics to start with and also had flickering headlights (dust in the lights view?) I found turning off the TAA in graphics settings made things way WAY better for me, at the cost of a bit of distance shimmer. Quite happy with it now graphically - much more like DR1. I thought codemasters showed videos of stage recordings for the calls? I have noted volume shifts though - perhaps editing changes?
  10. Ah... same here. That'll be what I get for buying a cheap key.
  11. @Sharky - I bought the deluxe version at CDkeys. Cheaper by far, although my damn key hasn't dropped yet...
  12. So I've also bought it on Steam. Don't let me down, Codies ! Gotta say from the youtube reviews yesterday - Jimmy Broadbent's - it looks great fun. Just hoping for a old skool league like we used to do or similar. That was awesome fun....
  13. I was going to pass until they announced VR support.. Kinda looking forward to it now - I'll probably pick it up now even though the initial content sounded a little light until they add further countries and stages ? Sounds good though Joe...
  14. Some great pics there, Thor. This game engine blows my brain box - it just keeps cranking out wondrously different scenes as you travel. I'm doing the 40 jumps to my next DW2 waypoint now.... It's a bit of a grind - and I know I could likely reduce it with Spanx neutron jumps but I like the chillax of the jump routine...
  15. Some great shots here - I was having a look at those DW2 notable phenomenon last night. In VR this game really is on a different level. My trusty Cobra III took a bit of a dent when I overshot into the rings and it had to 'emergency drop out' - must pay more attention. Some kindly soul at the Abandoned settlement patched me up. I could hear those repair drones moving *AROUND* my ship in VR. Quite unsettling but still amazingly, gobsmackingly brilliant. I'm new to E:D - just started playing at Xmas after finally getting a HOTAS, and affixing it to my race rig. My jump range is only 35ly so DW2 is likely to be a bit of a grind, but well, I couldn't miss it, could I ? See you out in the black....
