    Gaming Myths

    Never used a joystick ever on the old 48k just didn't feel right. QAOP and M most times although I did prefer 67890 for certain games though, on reflection, I've no idea why. Do remember having a screwdriver and constantly mucking about with the tape head.

    Gaming Myths

    Someone opening your bedroom door whilst a game was loading causing an R Tape loading error, 0:1 You spend ages getting the volume control just right, sitting deadly still and silent allowing sufficient tape loading karma to build up in the room ... then someone opens your door
  4. One of the articles posted suggests that the game is a prequel. I would be happy with that. More HL1.5 than HL3.

    I could see the quest being a huge Xmas hit next year. Just the thing needed whilst we are in the middle of a console cycle. Rec room, windland 2, superhot etc. There is quite a lot there for little Johnny (or little Jane) to pick and play on Xmas day. It looks like a solid way to build up a critical mass for vr.
  6. Good idea @SharkyOB totally up for that tomorrow. Took me a while to figure out the teamspeak stuff but its all installed, registered and sync'ed to my new revolution sim racing forum account. I think it all starts at 7:30 with everyone joining 10 mins before so I'll catch you both then. Now I'm off to play with my settings for headlights ... its a good idea they have to see who is on a fast lap and who isn't. @ColinMac CrewChief is really good. I especially like the "enable swearing" setting.
  7. Sorry man, can't do tonight. Definitely up for some racing next time though.
  8. Really enjoyed the pCars earlier in the week - the steam voice chat worked well. The only problem was the volume of car parts I may have inadvertently left scattered along the race track though ... all good fun! We should organise another race night whenever suits people best. Count me in.
  9. I'm up for some racing. After 7 works for me. Never raced those Clio's but hear they are good and totally up for giving them a go. Happy with formula ford too. I've used discord when racing with my mate. We had to turn down music and other volume stuff in game so we could hear each other ... Which mostly consisted of swearing when we made mistakes. The new Steam voice chat is supposed to be hugely improved too. Never tried it properly yet.

    F1 2018

    So disappointed to hear that again. Only visit this thread when it bumps on the off chance is a VR announcement.
  11. I'm up for some racing for sure. I'll also be in VR. I am happy enough in most of the standard tracks and open to race just about anything (I usually race the GT cars and also like any of the formula cars). Done a fair bit of online racing in pCars2 but for all the time I have spent racing I'm still pretty shit at it though usually finishing 15th out of 20 on average. That said, I don't really care too much being good as I just enjoy the racing nonetheless. My steam ID is simondoc feel free to add me.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Glad that Danny got driver of the day. In a counter-intuitive statement I would also like to have voted for both max and Brendon for completely turning this race on its head.

    What classic games should be remade in VR?

    Tie fighter Vs x-wing Magic carpet Any god game / sim city (would be cool to see a minature world below you) Mass effect 1, 2 or 3 Just cause 2 Far cry 3 or 4

    Oculus Rift (VR Headset)

    @Cool Ben Yes, put about 10-15 hours in since I bought it at New year. On mobile at work and being lazy so can't type too much ... But here is my comments to a mate when I emailed him about this very thing last night ... it's genius and just what I wanted it to be, but it is also famously a bit shit for the first 2-3 hours until you get to grips with the controls. Add into the mix that there isn't any official support of Oculus Rift or its controllers so there is a stupid faff to get it working. However, after 2 or 3 games, and 2 or 3 hours, it all becomes second nature and when it finally does click - OMG! It's really really good.

    This is a good article on usb https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-balancing-bandwidth-on-usb/ And the follow up is good too https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-identifying-host-controllers/ These explain what is important when it comes to usb ... It's about the host controllers rather than ports.
