    I've just started dipping my toes into iRacing,...

    I've just started dipping my toes into iRacing, after glancing at it suspiciously for years. GPL is probably my most-played game ever (it's the only one I religiously move across to new PCs) so I've...

    I think we (are at least me) are using Rivaili rather than RSR for this one.

    I may give the three month iRacing trial a go once my life settles down a bit in September. The starting cars and tracks aren't particularly appealing to a non-US citizen though. How does it perform...

  7. The only way I can hope to string a reasonable...

    The only way I can hope to string a reasonable time together is by sticking really, really tight to the inside of every corner to make the track as short as possible. The Elise is more like a go-kart...

    I'm not sure my laptimes ever recovered from retiring my old Microsoft FF wheel when the G25 arrived. It was back in the GPL days and I was immediately 3-5 seconds slower.
  9. I agree that the G27 is a little better than the...

    I agree that the G27 is a little better than the G25 in lots of ways but I'm afraid the lack of the sequential shifter is a big loss for me. So much of my racing is done in cars that have sequential...

    That would be a bit of a stretch, given how cagey teams are about the designs of their cars right up until a few weeks before the first race.

    Mittens has punished me appropriately for daring to claim to be the fastest in S1. I am suitably chastened.
  12. Only 3rd for now but I take comfort from the fact...

    Only 3rd for now but I take comfort from the fact that I (currently) have the fastest first sector! Even though that throws the rest of the lap into an even more pitiful light!

    I'm not really a hotlapper. I prefer to race against other people where being slower doesn't matter if you're dicing with someone equally slow.
  14. Think I'll sit this one out. Monza and I have...

    Think I'll sit this one out. Monza and I have never got on. I was becoming competitive after about 5 years in GPL but I've never come to grips with the modern layout in any game. I can sometimes hit...

    Given that (probably?) most of the announced content for PCars hasn't even been started yet and it's slated for release in a few months, the DLC will be an ongoing thing.

    Other games haven't exactly been free of DLC though, have they? I've lost count of the number of Race07 addins I purchased and doesn't iRacing require you to buy cars and tracks individually? Does...

    That seems to be the plan. The base game will come with a broad selection but if your interest is Touring cars you'll be able to buy a pack for that. Same for Nascar etc.

    The game isn't released...

    I think the trouble with Project Cars as it stands at the moment (remaining technical issues aside) is that a lot of the content that won't actually be there for the release is currently in the...

    Ooh, I didn't know that. Maybe I'll be harassing you yet.
  20. I think I'm done with a low-ish 1:04. Once again,...

    I think I'm done with a low-ish 1:04. Once again, and as is par for the course, I honed my setup to a fine edge then didn't save it on exit.
  21. You're probably using the same car setup...

    You're probably using the same car setup methodology as me. Change stuff, several different things at once, don't save intermediate setups and immediately forget what you did.
  22. See that big "Start Engine" button at the...

    See that big "Start Engine" button at the top-right? That's what did it for me. Took me a minute or two of clicking other things though - it's not obvious. I prefer Rivali too - split times are nice...

    Port scanning goes on all the time. There are all sorts of nasties out there on the internet that probe random IP addresses for weaknesses to exploit. If your firewall is blocking them, it's doing...

    Doom was an extremely simple, repetitive game, but a pioneer of its time. A modern equivalent might be graphically lovely but wouldn't hold the attention and if you crowbar in all the aspects...

    Last time I checked, my FSX folder was over 200Gb. I might as well live in it.
