    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The photo scenery is undoubtedly at its best from more than a couple of thousand feet up and doesn't look like much from low level, but I tend to use it for sightseeing so that's fine with me. I'm...
  15. If you are into sightseeing (and, I guess,...

    If you are into sightseeing (and, I guess, British) the Horizon VFR Scenery Generation X is fantastic. I've gradually purchased all of it over the years (whenever a sale is on, basically) and have...

    For me, the biggest disappointment was Frontier, Elite 2. Many, many people thought it was the best thing ever but after nearly ruining my degree studies over Elite on the Spectrum, the introduction...

    Project Cars drives really well. I'm not a racing driver so I can't say how realistic is actually is but the completed cars (quite a few are still at an early stage) drive like cars and stupid...

    I wouldn't claim it was tactical. Once spotted, the AI would just run directly at you. Get some height and they'd pretty much mill around underneath like ants. Still a game I enjoyed immensely at the...

    CvH doesn't fit into the Commanche series at all. It's the second part of the Enemy Engaged series and well worth playing. The flight model is good without being punishing, it has a fantastic set of...

    Adding KeeperFX (http://keeper.lubiki.pl/html/dk_keeperfx_dwnld.php) makes DK1 much nicer looking and does away with DOSBox without changing the game itself.

    It's funny how quickly threads wander off-topic, isn't it?

    I don't think Windows 7 has any native Bluray burning facilities but there are a number of apps to do the job. I don't use Bluray but my...

    Everyone is too busy ranting over on the Ego forums. Can't help you I'm afraid - I've just started AP for the first time.
