Well I downloaded 1.0.3 yesterday, installed it just now, copied my license/drivers folders across and started reading this thread, but now after reading this thread I don't know if I can be bothered to get my wheels out of the loft to give it a try.
I think I've remembered how disappointing it was last time.
it gets worse
the ffb and driving position/fov settings are part of the setups now so that every time you get a setup from someone else you have to spend a minute to set everything back to your preferences again (which of course also requires you to remember what setting you happen to like)
and if that wasnt bad enough he somehow got it into his head that what iracing does is a good idea and we should all have to run a completely unrelated application (browser) to play netkar (which btw doesnt like alt tabbing at all so i have no idea how thats supposed to work out)
he admitted that hes pretty bad at designing guis but i kind of get the impression that he doesnt think his ideas through to the end
you might want to spend the time saved by not fetching your wheel on producing an heir to your nkp licence
roffle moment of the day. Try the fastest car in nk, take all arb off from front and put something like 20 arb on the rear. Exit pits, accelerate and turn and check out how much suspension travel the bloody thing has on front. At least 30cm! I almost roffled to death myself
(other than that, I somewhat like the new fastest car although the driving model is still extremely "metallic" or "hard")
I just set it all in nHancer and turn it off in nKPro. Works fine.
@Kev. Ignore the crap written in here and try it. The response at the hate filled hellhole that is RSC has been overwhelmingly positive. That says a lot.
I know a load of LFS drivers that are now driving it and loving it.
Its not perfect by any means, but it's 10x better than it was.
1.04 is being worked on as i speak. Kunos is working on the issues that have arisen in this release. ( none of them show stopping by any means)
The only bad thing about this release is the crappy standard of driving by the noobs. Lastplace are running some servers that have been great today. Good drivers, great racing.
New science: the front arb controls the roll of front axle. No front arb: makxsimum roll (and rofl):
(jokes aside, there is something sick wrong with the front suspension in nk in the fastest single seater? It's like the front suspensions, or springs are connected together but not to the car which makes the front suspension act like the frot axle ones used on tractors. The springs should counter that movement but they don't which makes the front suspension sick wrong imho)
All I changed was front arb to 0. I didn't even use brakes, I just put that text o the screenie to make it more roffle. The suspension did not break orwas broken to start with either.
