AC has potential to look great and equal/better to GT6, but only if the HDR system will be given some love so it's less performance hungry and its brightness settings are tweaked. Now it's sometimes way too dark and sometimes blindingly bright with HDR/motion blur on.

The reflections also beg for some supersampling, otherwise there's always some horrific aliasing going on.

I literally couldn't stop driving the F40. I didn't even try another new cars yet......
I just tried (/bought) it. 26 Euro's is a nice price.

Now waiting on the announcement they going to give on the 24th
Little help guys, my wheel shakes pretty annoyingly while standing still, like i'm going through gravel.. I've did the setup wizard, fine tuned the controls and all that.. And throttle/brake seem to be inverted, or they don't react at all sometimes..
Quote from CardsetCrazy :Of course it wasn't surprise that GT6 (and GT5) has amazing graphics.

LOL wut? Have you played GT6? The graphics are ass. They're worse than GT5. Aliasing everywhere, tearing everywhere, and constant frame drops during cockpit view. They're putrid.
Hey guys, just got AC a few days ago and really struggling with FPS stutter. It's fine for about a minute then just goes doolally and totally unplayable. I know it's not PC temperature or CPU/GPU overloading. Any ideas chaps?

The HDR tweaking and general art touch are great on GT5/6.

Aliasing, tearing and frame drops are performance bounded issues. Since we are comparing something running on ancient hardware with a new PC game, comparing performance-related issues isn't really fair.
I felt the stock f40 to be undriveable. No brakes, no grip, no turn in, oversteer on exit no matter what you do. f40 step 3 was a better experience. 599 feels awesome. Z4 feels ok, but quite numb
Also 458 S3 version was nice
Quote :- Fixed triple screen change gear animations going too fast

Why does triple screen have any effect on shift animation rate?!
That's pretty much accurate for the standard F40. Not a good car (and like most terrible supercars, devilishly desirible)
Drove X-Bow a bit, once it goes into a slight slide, no way to get it back? Or i've become that bad.. Played a bit with the controls, wheel still slightly vibrates while standing still but not a deal breaker.
Don't know if I should mess with the wheel rotation (900) on this type of cars?
The F40 is sex, spent couple of hours with it. I just wish my CS V2 pedals would arrive already, I think the car would really benefit from a load-cell.

TIL hardware performance issues = bad graphics. illepall

It can take a long time to set wheel configuration well. And graphics settings are equally fiddly.
Xbow is one of the most controllable and forgiving cars, if you're struggling in such a way with that one I'd bet you have some settings wrong, giving crap ffb or worse: input lag.
Turn off vsync and aim to get 100 FPS, it does wonders to the controls.
am i the only one whos having issues with the cars refusing to step back in line after a slide? it feels somwhat like the physics switch to a slide mode and the back will just keep swining back and forth until youve slowed down a lot sometimes
maybe its just my wheel setup but a friend tried the sim today and he was complaining about the same thing within a couple of minutes

also whats the timing and tyre app you guys are using?

I got this but not with every cars. Mostly the F458 and it felt weird.

You don't have the silly slide effect and the likes on, and what wheel do you use?
I have no reference as i've never drifted or driven a car on the limit IRL, but plain 90% ffb (100 windows) feels just fine.
I too had that problem mainly with the Lotus 49, over correcting it all the time. It's not as bad any more with more practice but I still tend to do it every now and then. Can't say I had any trouble with the road cars yet, they feel pretty natural to catch on my end.

Can't say anything about recent builds though, my gpu is on it's rma world tour didn't fire up AC since 10 days.

Quote from Matrixi :The F40 is sex...

Same here, first car I tested, stock F40, stock setup, 90 tires @ Imola
lowered and moved forward the seat a bit (AC default dude must be tall one, hi sits so high, that I can't see the upper par of the dash)

Damn! KS totally nailed the F40, it's better then I expected , weak brakes, no abs, masive turbo lag, heaps of power, poping and banging twinturbo v8, long gear ratios, go kart like handling, and it's totally driftable with 490 degrees of rotation, but be aware of that powerband and working pop up headlights:lovies:

F40 s3, is the same thing but turned up to

Harder suspension, semislick or full slick tires, and 610hp+/700nm Italian madness
Interesting F40 story
ive been banned from the forum for apparent use of dodgy language until the 26th december.. ! :|

Quote from Bean0 :Maybe try this...
