Bloody corrupted save games...
On the plus side, AA/AF works now, so it looks a LOT nicer. Ultra LOD and full 8xAA with Vsync runs nice and smooth.
On the 'story mode' the level of difficulty is a bit higher - I can only qualify the Lotus in the region of 9th and finish in 7th, which is a bit different to the single race mode where I can use the same car and stick it on pole by several seconds.
But I still think it's too easy to be quick, even with the random half spins (nearly all of which can be cured just by jumping on the brakes).
Need more play time obviously.
Oh, and I found slicks on a wet track (forced light rain) was impossible. I've heard some people complain that the slicks had the same grip as wets in the wet, but that wasn't the case last night.
Need to get the FOV mods and fixed head mods, but the site was down for me last night. That'll help a lot methinks.
