Remember LFS turning into a completely new experience as I bought my G25 (after using a crappy TM). Can't believe my G25 still rocks after 8 years of track battles . Credits to Logitech and Scavier! Not to mention all the miles spent on RBR stages.
Even after years in (beta) AC and pCARS, I return to LFS.
LFS is timeless. It is always fun because it feels real. No bling needed. Good people, good racing.
Never forget all these legendary moments with DSR-Racing !! Hi Gil, good to see you`re around
Summary true for me, except the eight, me change that into "doing Hotlaps all night long , collecting WR`s
just to loose them within 24 hours (for sure), then doing Hotlaps all day long, collecting WR`s just to loose them within ..."
I'm a bit late, but still lurking too. I did go to dSRC web page yesterday out of curiosity. Home page is still up.
I still race occasionally on a local server with my bro (mr_spoon), but I haven't really bothered to try and race on busier servers, normally because the racing combo's don't take my fancy.
I don't have a good enough connection to host races, but I'd be keen to race now and again with the 'old skool' brigade. As long as we are all slow together it's more fun Eza is still an alien no-doubt, but I'm sure Bladerunner, Griv and I can provide the entertaining banger racing at the back!
I started back in 2003 with S1. S2 fixed up S1's quirky physics, mostly due to switch from viscous differential to limited slip differential. I occasionally browse the forum to see what is going on, but haven't played LFS in quite a while. I recall being called a pessimist for posting that I thought S3 wouldn't be released until 2009 or later (based on S1 2003, S2 2006)
So for me LFS is almost 12 years old, and few games remain popular for that long. As mentioned in an earlier post, probably 1 to 3 or 4 years is the typical amount of time a player spends on a particular game.
Oh hey... look, I remember my password and username. Doubt anyone remembers me and doubt I remember anyone lol....
Started back in the day when it was demo only, then S1, S2, retired from playing eventually, as I realized I had to get a life and job, ha!
Every once in a while, I'll play LFS and lurk the forums real quick and see what updates. Really waiting for S3 and that VW. Kind of glad to see I didn't stick around waiting for S3 to be released, as it seems that train is slow moving. But I loved the community back then and how serious the races can be (clean racing).
Best of luck to LFS and it's community.
I cheated on LFS last year and tried iRacing. Have to admit, it was a bit amazing, but the monthly membership is a real turn off. For an occasional sim racer
I dunno... since I started playing again, I like this x box controller better than the wheel (did I type that too loud?) Yeah, the wheel sucks.
Calibration issues are a thing of the past with this x box controller.
I mean the wheel is nice and all, especially a G25. But at that price, you can almost buy a real car. I made the mistake once of spending too much money on a video game controller. If I just have to use a wheel, I 'll hack my account and play it on my son's computer. He has the G25.
LOL because of his job, I doubt he likes video games much anymore. but I do know that he uses LFS as a benchmark when judging/testing other titles.
I don't even bother with online anymore. It's like Salt Lake City on a Tuesday night....Dead.
Plus, after a 60 mile work commute in gridlock with a bunch of morons, if I want to play LFS at all, I DON"T want to play nice.
