I had a boring, hot race :P
Finished 4th, but I think half of the drivers retired way before the race ended - I'll try practicing a bit for Silverstone, but with the current weather here it's too hot to be gripping a steering wheel longer than an hour
I just realized since I'm having so much fun I went on and bought all the missing 13th week stuff and all missing road racing stuff... Did I say bought? I meant rented... Now, where do I get the radical setupd ???
Right now I'm having another problem. I go on TEST, then chose the car and track and then there's no way to start the test? Theres only a red button saying Updates Required. I click on that and it says beside the list of updates that they are already downloaded. I click on update again just in case and it says download complete in less then half a second . Any idea's on what's up?
Yep tried FireFox 3 but still doesn't work. I explained it a bit more.
Here's what I posted just now :
I just tried with Firefox 3 and it still doesn't work. It downloads and there's the automaticly install checked and then once it's done downloading the DONE button goes on but the installation bar at the top of the website is still at 50%. Then i click done and it says installation aborted. That's after the download bar goes to 100% :S
I used my dad's credit card and sent a message to support to change my name but it wasn't done yet so I don't think that is the problem? It's still under my dad's name. The one which is shown on his credit card. :S
I just got firefox 3 so there's no addons. I dissabled the security things and all but still nothing. It says there's 2 updates. 1 that's 0 Mb and one that's 22 mb. :S I'm scared that the one that says 0 is actually supposed to have more then that.
0 Patcher Software and Data v2008.07.23.02 downloaded
22 System Software and Data v2008.07.23.02 downloaded
That's what it says when I click on the update required button. Is there a way to manually install updates which were downloaded?
I've found it best to check club forums for setups and try to find a person who's driving style and setup fits you best. I've had much success with Ross McGregor's road setups and Huttu's oval sets (his road setups are rather oversteery but usually softening rear-ARB does the trick)
Found quite cool example of how far they've gone with all the little details, on Silverstone T1 "Copse" runoff area there's these little rows of water drain holes textured into tarmac which you can actually hear when you drive over them. (Yes, I have sometimes trouble staying away from those runoff zones)
Edit: Still have to add that I've never felt such an excitement in racing sim that what I've had racing Radicals with big grid. First lap in middle of 20 car pack is scary as hell, especially the section from T1 to T6. There's cars everywhere and you need 100% focus, fast reflexes and truckload of good luck. On last start I went dropped to ~12th on first corner but was already 3rd in middle of "Maggots". No idea how it happened, tho
