My only problem with NkPro is probably one that is very easy to sort out but I can't suss it. My clutch pedal needs to be inverted/uninverted because when the clutch pedal is untouched the game thinks it is full on whereas when I put my foot down on the clutch it thinks that it is disengaged. So in order to drive I have to hold my clutch pedal down.
I believe you can simply invert / uninvert the pedals as you wish, using the 'set min' and 'set max' buttons in the calibration screen. Hold your pedal full and hit 'set max'. Let it return to fully open and hit 'set min'
I take all my thanks away from Dustin and hand it over to you.
Anyway lets not get into who helped who! Having great fun with this now, feels really good. Will most likely buy this once 1.03 is released. I am only trying the 1.02 version of course so I am sure 1.03 will feel even better.
I believe so.(well, he's obviously got the foundations for it on the go) I cant see it arriving for a very long time though. Lets hope he's learned his lessons on how to support a sim properly this time round.
The next best hope is for NKPro to at least maintain a stable number of demo players. Get some converts that way. Then there are the fringe simmers who have "just discovered it" but don't know the back story.
IMO there isn't enough content to make it a compelling buy. At one point the "feel" of the game blew me away, but the sim-scape has moved forward and I don't feel that way about 1.02 anymore. I've gotten better at understanding vehicle dynamics, and 1.02 feels so massively flawed to drive, despite being somewhat more immersive. I hope 1.03 is the quantum leap.
For me it was actually the main reason to stop reading it. Maybe I'd read the occasional LFS dev interview, but I'd rather wait for it to be copy'n'pasted to the forum here.
I still think ASS was a main contributor to the huge failure that nKP was at its release. The hype they generated with their usual BS "this is the best thing ever" speech (which they have, or at least back then had for every sim and especially all the countless physics-worthless rFactor mods, of which only now a select few start to shine due to extensive work (Niels )) made everyone think nKP will be a major player in sim racing - that it will be a product able to rival LFS. The outcome we can all still remember. Granted, Kunos who didn't say a thing about nKP's sorry state or who maybe even believed the hype himself is in the end the one to blame, but this example just made it clear how journalistically worthless ASS actually is.
Oh well, at least the magazine contains the directions on where to apply it.
