    Dirt Rally 2.0

    Good to hear you’re enjoying it, they’re taking their time with any patch though which is a sad state of affairs considering it’s so important for a rally game imo. Makes you wonder wether they can fix it or it’s an inherent/insurmountable problem in the game engine which is incompatible with the surface changing stuff.

    6/10 half arsed effort when you compare to Dirt Rally and especially Wipeout. A bit grainy, a bit low res but maybe it’ll be better on the Pro. Driving the Ring in VR was worth it alone but VR is not something I go back to much in GT Sport, which is a shame. It’s a real shame they didn’t improve this mode.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione

    Do you mean versus AC as they haven’t changed in ACC? They never bothered me much in AC as I generally went into multi-player but SIM rather than menu design is definitely KUNOS’ strong point. I can navigate them with my wheel though so that’s a plus and it’s very straightforward to setup a single player session so I don’t think they’re too bad. The multiplayer menu is basic though, not too keen on that at the moment, could do with a favourite list, sort order etc.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione

    @MattyP might be worth researching a bit, it can be quite taxing with the lighting, dynamic weather and also how many AI you run in single player. Sounds as though you’re above min spec depending on your cpu: i5-4460 or AMD FX-8120, 4 GB RAM, GeForce GTX 460 2GB, Radeon HD 7770.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione

    Assetto Corsa Competizione, the official game of the Blancpain GT Series is due to leave early access on 29 May 2019. Official Game of Blancpain GT3 Series Launch Trailer I’ve been playing this since the start of the Early Access and it’s developing into an awesome sim, which is no surprise given KUNOS Simulazioni’s history and support of the original Assetto Corsa. Currently at v0.7.2 which contains: Tracks Hungaroring Misano Monza Nurburgring GP Paul Ricard Zolder GT3 Cars Lamborghini Huracan Bentley Continental BMW M6 Ferrari 488 Emil Frey Jaguar Nissan Nismo GT-R On release the game should include all officially licensed 2018 teams, cars and tracks with a free update in the summer of the 2019 season content. Roadmap One of my favourite aspects of the game is the rating system, created by Minolin of MR rating fame in Assetto Corsa. Basically there are several ratings to work your way through in order: Track Knowledge (3 medals per track) Consistency Car Control Pace (based on leaderboard rankings e.g. Hot Lap, Hot Stint etc.) Safety Racecraft Competition Safety will be a key rating in terms of multiplayer so that server admins can keep out the wreckers. Car Control is probably my favourite, it provides real-time feedback on each corner (very slow, fine, ok, perfect, overly aggressive etc) and I’ve knocked about 1.5secs off my best Monza lap in the Lambo and improved my consistency by focusing on improving the CC rating. The recommended spec is i5-8600K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, 16 GB RAM and a GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB or Radeon RX 580 8GB. I have similar with an i7 and manage around 80fps @ 1080p, mostly epic settings apart from mirrors. Hopefully they’ll bring It to consoles at some point although no announcement yet, would be great to race this with the GT Sport crowd .

    F1 2019

    F2 probably didn’t takes much effort, a few parameter tweaks to the F1 engine and some car models/liveries. If it’s built into the career as a feeder into F1 then would be really good. If it’s completely separate then meh. Someone should grab the BTCC licence.

    Yep the in-app purchase stuff (probably why we can’t gift/sell cars or why they’ve never increased the sport mode payout) leaves a bit of a bad taste, can’t complain about the amount of free content but many of the cars I’ll never get to drive as they’re 10M+ often 20M credits.

    Great lap, you carry so much speed through the mid section.

    How about coming over to PC for Assetto Corsa Competizione, the future of GT3 racing .

    It’s a shame they’ve never built in Friends leaderboards or something to support multiplayer leagues/championships. Perhaps they feel it would hit their FIA stuff etc.

    Was interesting racing in the dailies, TT Cup seemed to be car of choice, I was in WRX. TT was faster on straights but I was better on brakes and faster through corners/esses. Made for a fun race as all my overtakes had to be under braking or round the outside . No fuel or tyre wear though and only 4 laps. Lambos are also fast but looked trickier to control or people were running without TC. Generally my race pace was much better than quali position suggested, keep it on the track and you generally move up a few places by default without having to overtake anyone.

    I’m up for giving GR3 Interlagos a go this week.

    Had about 5 or 6 quality daily races round Suzuka in Gr 4, amazing bumper to bumper action, pretty clean. Stay on the road and pick them off is my motto . Of course I knocked 6 tenths off my quali pace to get a 2.10.2 and thought, yes I’ll start in top 3 or 4 so good chance of a race win, nope 14th out of 16 in next race, bloody GTS. Got my DR going in the right direction again at least. Maybe we should give Gr 4 a go in the next championship, they’re very driveable so should make for some good close racing.
