  1. Okey-dokey folks! I been seeing you lot in the GT Sport topic having fun on it and am thinking I might want in on some of this action. I've been playing a little GT on the controller doing okay'ish, but thinking perhaps I'm needing a wheel to get the most enjoyment out of it. Plus some Dirt Rally etc with it no doubt. So I ask of your experienced wisdom to help guide and advise me please for what I should be considering? I'm only a relatively inexperienced rookie racer and I got a big list of Lego sets I need to buy, so don't want to be dropping mega money on some super high end setup, but equally I don't want something crappy. From some looking around myself it seems Logitech G29 and Thrustmaster T300 RS seem to be solid mid-range options. Looks like maybe the T300 is the bit better wheel, but pedals not so much unless I get the GT edition with some T3PA pedals, which is up around £300+. Are the standard pedals OK, or junk? I know I've seen it cheaper before on black friday etc, but £200 at box.co.uk for a G29 with the extra shifter and bundled with F1 2019 what I could sell/trade for make it a little cheaper. This looks decent enough and the price definitely a bit more friendly. Especially if I get addicted and decide I need a proper upgrade in the future. I will also need something to mount it on so I'm leaning toward the G29 again there so I don't make myself completely skint. Then moving on to mounting it...space is a consideration so no bid massive full bucket seat frame things. Is a Wheel Stand Pro still the default best choice? The GT Omega looks quite decent and solid and not too huge.
  2. Balls to those miserable bastards who thought this wasn't going to be awesome https://xboxclips.com/meatball46/62a6f335-b6b0-432e-85af-9c833d9e72ca
  3. If the promotion goes back the other way and they release some FH4 themed Speed Champions Lego set I might just get a little excited
  4. Should've unlocked at 6pm. Though perhaps not instantly for everyone at the same time they said on the stream. There was already a 5.4gb Speed Champions file in there when I checked yesterday, but when I just tried to launch the game it is now downloading another 8.2gb update
  5. Launch day stream live now...

    Black Gold That is one rather tough track to get a platinum on... https://xboxclips.com/meatball46/390bf69f-f2a2-412a-ade9-67018bce001b Still been playing this pretty regular here. It's bugged for me and stopped giving me crates for levelling up a while back, but otherwise is actually playing fine and good with no slowdown etc on my X. Now I've just unlocked the Ninja tracks, but no way I'm trying them tonight! Think I should go through and try to find some squirrels next maybe.
  7. I'm kind of the opposite, I didn't have any interest in Hot Wheels so thought I'd be a bit meh for the DLC expansion but I ended up loving it. Now I love Lego and Speed Champions so I'm positively tumescent here for this one
  8. Why thank you, very kind of you to say We do have a couple of other Trials nuisances around here too though. Think that's about as good as I'm getting for today there... https://xboxclips.com/meatball46/ed314f94-1847-4e86-9192-8a0cb293216f
  9. Hoping I'm not on monkeydog's friend list Aye, I seem to have quite a few of our Netherlands contingent on mine like Meerman. I didn't appear to have you on there though @Kryptonian so just added you. See if I can get somewhere near that Sewage Plant time as well.
  10. Hmm...I used to think I'd been rather nifty at this, but playing through again now I been taking some pretty big time off my previous best efforts on some of these tracks from back then, like... https://xboxclips.com/meatball46/04ae988f-1eb2-4848-bb8c-e42499e16dc6
  11. Doesn't appear to be available on the store to buy currently I don't think. But Amazon and Game have downloadable redeem codes for it for sale. Base game, no DLC though. Can you not log in with your old account, set the XB1 as your home console for that account, then get it onto the XB1 with that account and then other profiles on the console can play it? Yeah, I've been sticking with slowly progressing through Rising and it plays amazing and with some wicked tracks. I've even enjoyed the challenge for doing some of the contracts, but you need to grind through so bloody many of them and the UI... "You want icons? We got you sorted, here's a shit load"
  12. 69!!! That's how many times I've got on my XBL friends my leaderboards to go against on this. I'd forgotten how popular this was back in its peak back then. It's nice and fun to be back on it now on XB1 with it being added to the backwards compatible games. Hard to believe I'm sure, but I think my skills have improved since back when it was current. I been getting myself up higher on some of those leaderboards https://gamerdvr.com/gamer/meatball46/video/74051817 Unfortunately my save progress doesn't appear to have carried over, so I'm needing to unlock all the tracks again. It's a little rough and basic looking, but still plays good. Looking forwards to seeing how I can manage on getting through Inferno now.
  13. Thats what I assumed it’d be wrong. So I dug out and hooked up my 360 to copy them to online clouds and I went into the console settings storage menu for the game, there was three big files for the game and its two DLC’s then a bunch of small save files that looked like for some user created tracks, but nothing I could see as a main game save file. I loaded the game up to try and it was exactly the same as on XB1, times on leaderboards ok but no bikes/tracks unlocked and progress stats all at zero
  14. Weird...I have rankings showing on the online leaderboards, and my best ghost is showing to race against in the tracks but I don't seem to have anything tracks/progress unlocked on it Going to need to have to play through it all again by the look of it. And set new better faster times

    Forgot to reply earlier sorry. But yeah, should obviously goes without saying that I’m in for this. Got a couple days off work now, looking forward to stick a bit more time into this and try open up some more tracks.
