    If I ever have to reinstall FSX and its installed addons from scratch, I'll be looking at over 240GB. Not going to happen.

    Only ever played it as pure stealth and loved it for that. It's one of very few games I've ever played to completion without any sort of cheating. Maybe treating it as a standard FPS didn't work so...

    Jackasses exist in all online racing games. They are a fact of life. The difference is that iRacing gives you the opportunity to leave them behind if you are not a jackass yourself. It took me three...

    Your views on SR are well known and regularly vehemently put but my experience is different. Yes there have been unfair occasions (although I seem to get 0x penalties when hit from the rear) but it's...

    I reckon the system in iRacing is the closest we have to real-life racing progression at the moment. Think about any real entry-level series (say the Clio Cup in the UK) and the newbies will...

    No but it's the one that best suits me. It's well organised, reliable and I've yet to have a race that felt in any way unfair. I've always been matched against others of a similar skill to me, never...

    If you treat iRacing like a career more than a game, you'll get a lot more out of it. Hoon around like an idiot as most people do on the public servers for other games and you won't get anywhere. As...

    I've put a lot of time into Race07. Never got on too well with GTRE (seriously - GT racing without Ferrari or Porsche?) but the WTCC cars and Minis have used up an awful lot of spare hours.

    Didn't Tiff Needell have something to do with voiceovers in TOCA2? I remember seeing him enthuse about the game on TV before I got it and realised he was in it too.

    Not sure if we are talking about the artificial floating racing line or indicative road texturing but the first time I met the latter was in GPL. It added greatly to the immersion.

    I remember the original TOCA being about the hardest AI I had or have ever raced against, a view almost entirely set by the experience of trying to pass them down the back "straight" at Thruxton. You...

    I reckon I could at least get an A-10 started and onto the runway if I had to. DCS is brutally and fantastically anal.

    No Corvettes that I've seen. There are a couple of Mustangs planned at some point (probably not release) and a couple of Caper stock cars but that's about it for Yank Tanks.

    I haven't played PCars for a while. My racing time is extremely limited right now so I'm concentrating on iRacing. However, I can say a lot of effort is being up into the physics and tyre models if...

    I don't have any TCs, just lots of tracks and cars. It's hard to find anyone to race them against nowadays though.

    I've had GPL installed continuously since 1998. Every time I've had a new computer I've just copied the entire game folder across and fixed any glitches a new OS might introduce but it's the same...

    My only F1 game is GPL, but I guess this is a thread for "modern" F1, right?

    No wait, I played the original Geoff Crammond F1GP to death. Does that count?

    Or is it just that if you manage to roll one you are almost certainly going to be hideously injured and the explosives will just make sure you aren't a burden to anyone? It's a very German approach.

    I just took 0.99 seconds off my best time and moved precisely no places up the table. That's the difference between the top three and the rest of us!
