I think a DirectX10.0 patch was sort of released over the weekend?
It's a racing sim.
I guess the driver or something is included in DirectX or something.
Can't judge physics with a keyboard. Unless you drive real cars with a keyboard.
There are skins and colours. Setups limited to what is vaguely possible on the actual cars. Track configs will be included later.
Turn it off in an .ini file.
Electronic stability control??
Pretty damn brilliantly.
I'm sure the numbers in the setup area will be refined. At the moment, I'm more concerned that some settings are measurements (degrees, millimeters etc) and others are just arbitrary scales (4 out of 6).
Really? Not tried running it in DOS mode.
Oh no, you can't speed in the pitlane. Destroy the game. But I agree that ABS=off should equal ABS=off, even if the real car has it.
Erm... Slip the clutch some more.
I'm sure it'll be fixed soon enough, but I think most people can drift without needing the clutch.
Well... Too early to be sure exactly, but rFactor is awful. Always has been. Always will be. Unless you're referring to rF2, but I haven't tried that.
It's a beta version really. People who use beta versions are often quite happy fiddling with ini files to find what works without the user interface needing to be designed for every adjustment.
The clutch dynamics are gay. So finite to actually get a h-shifter car into gear without waiting around in neutral for days to get it into the gear you want. Seems like you have to lift sufficiently even if the clutch is fully depressed. Seen that problem many time with other sims though.
I find the whole clutch thing strange tbh
Even if you put on every assist there is (for testing, and when I tried out how it felt on keyboard bla bla), you have to keep in trottle and clutch at same time to even get the car moving.
Ofc I know that is how a clutch work lol, but it just feels.. it feels strange somehow how the whole clutch mechanism / start mechanism feels.
(it actually tok me solid two mins before I even managed to get car moving since I did not understand I had to push the two pedals at same time ^^).
Lol, I am serious with you on this, and this is what happend :
I set up the controller for wheel, tok me some mins to figure out why it whent full trottle / brake. Had to push that silly "V" thing in the meny... WHY btw?
Secondly, everything was fine, loaded up and pedals showed signal of not going complete batshit the second the game loaded. I started up and only saw the wheels spinning. Did not quite understand what to do so tapped the clutch. It spiked - nothing happend afterwards. To actually launch the formula car I have to hold the clutch full down with trottle for some SECONDS, and then it start to slowly get up to speed and I can release it.
Isn't the car so powerfull, that even from a stop if you floor it and release the clutch, it should go forward (uncontrollable of course)?
I know I'm on thin ice, but it just did not give new players a good hint of what to do to get the car moving. And more confusing that there is an animation that shows clearly the wheels are spinning if you push down the pedals, but the car is still on it's place. I belived that I had some sort of handbrake on or something but well...
I'm sorry, our language differences make it so that I canot understand if you either telling me I'm an idiot or if the game is wrong somehow
I, well, haha, ofc. using a clutch is pretty straight forward, it's just the way it's presented to new players. Also the way the option meny are set up. It gives no hints or text what so ever, and you're stucked on the place clueless - unless you're not an idiot like me or if you have internet where you can find the answer ;P
Like I said it did not work turning it off and adjusting the ini files.
The steering helpers should be removed for all controllers, when I switch them off then they should be off 100% not that I find later when racing that it still tries to help me which actually has the opposite effect. So instead of sliding the rear and steering in it kills the throttle so I don't spin oh my, it saved my life... really? Remove the artificial helpers. If one wants full throttle it should be full throttle that moment no matter what.
Patch here patch there, it still won't run on anything below DX10. I'm happy with simple graphics, one can see more easily instead of the gloom bloom HDR that I turned off anyway.
It's a racing sim is to be seen, LFS is and it has mouse steering and it works well, unless I drive leagues I have no need for a wheel, happy with mouse and keys.
I dont get what you are on about when you talk about artificial helpers?
If you turn the aids off (pro mode) there are no assists apart from ABS, EDF and TC on the cars that have them in real life. (and they can still be turned off if you want to once in car) CTR+T for TC CTR+A for ABS
There is absolutely no throttle,brake or steering assists in pro mode unless you're driving with keys, and who would be silly enough to do that in a sim?
