That is not really a good idea, as you are wasting pedal travel, which reduces the precision on braking, nor is it a solution as it just messes up with the Axis settings and you will actually reach 100% brake force at 80% pedal movement, which will be even worse. Not to mention load-cell pedals, which goes mad when touching those. Easier way is learning some pedal control and practice until getting it right. It comes handy in every simulator.
Boot your system up with Hiren's boot CD, load into the diagnostics and run all of Samsung's tests and that will give a good idea on what to do. It does take a few hours to complete, but it's well worth the wait.
I learnt JAVA without a proper GUI, only a compiler installed and using Geany, which is kinda like Notepad++. You can easily learn to code, with no help or syntax clues, the compiler is kinda communicative anyway. C# on the other hand is really all about Visual Studio.
I don't agree with the PHP thing. That language is garbage and moreover, you have to install a php server on your PC to test your stuff, cause it just won't run by itself. Python is a weird one. Has weird syntax to begin with. I'd rather recommend something C related at least. Our university starts with C++ even for beginners, which I have no idea why, but it's not that bad of a choice.
C# is probably one of the best you can start off with, and JAVA is also a good option. I was learning those 2 when I got into programming, and they teach you the basics quite well, and as Bose said, the learning curve is brilliant.
Although, I also suggest that you should learning PROGRAMMING first and then start coding. You will be a one legged horse, if you jump into coding without learning the basic thinking behind programs, and the basic algorhythms that most tasks can be reversed to.
About sublime text:
I personally have astigmatism and have no freaking way to read light text on dark background for more than 5 minutes, which is certainly not a plus for coding.
I'll be visiting Cyprus for 4 days in the end of January. Maybe anyone living there or someone who has been there already could recommend a few nice places to visit around the country? I'll rent a car after taking off with the plane throughout the whole holiday, so I don't think travelling around is really a barrier.
What he said above.. Also, I can even drift the RUF Cup around every turn of any track, so it's strange that you can't make a circle on a skidpad... Not to mention the difference between steering locks in iRacing and Assetto Corsa. There is a huge difference.
That's as silly of a comparision as it can get, actually both of the above. Compare it with other hobbies and be surprised it's actually not that expensive to begin with. It has a pretty affordable price tag.
Lol, a 911 for a 19 year old. Imo that Lancer is a bit overkill already, but if you have a well-paid job, then why not. Maybe that's quite a cultural gap between the US and EU. Meanwhile I'm just sitting here and planning to get an NB MX5. You wouldn't even call that quarter-decent.
This world is so screwed up. Being offended on that level over history... If somebody came up with a wrong joke about treaty of trianon, I wouldn't give a damn crap about it, and same goes for any other whining over the history.
Media is generating so much bullcrap over Top Gear lately that my brain just wants to melt and flow through my ears whenever I read these articles.
That is a good point there. I remember suffering with Sebring on GT3s with random snappy slides, because of hitting the bumps in a wrong angle, especially in T1. Can be a pain in the ass sometimes, but it adds to the feeling that you are planted on the road and not just floating above it. I quite like it.
I think FFB feels awesome in iRacing, it helps you in every way to save any slips, and you really can save them (given that you have the ability coming from years of simracing, which makes you see the slide before it even happened). I gotta agree with Isaac though. LFS favours sliding too much, and the drivers are a whole tier better in iRacing. After all, giving the feeling of "professionality" is attracting to good drivers. Can't describe the brakes better than Isaac. In LFS you can solve every turns with a binary brake pedal usage (0% or 100%) with a little bit of throttle control, while in iR you can rarely ever flat the brakes out. Not even with ABS.
Yeah. They just started Nordschleife all so recently compared to the other tracks. I think they promised Spa for early summer, and here we are with the same tracks that were released in the first few weeks of development. I think 2015 Sept is a more realistic deadline.
Wow, I just skipped through a few of the driving parts, but god those players suck. These people are supposed to represent the best of their region and they are missing nearly every braking point and can't find a grip. It wasn't even a random car.
