Even if they improved nothing in RF2 for league admining it would be better then what we have in GT5. :angry:

Very cool, I was just gonna make sure everyone over here knew about this. I just took my soaking wet and chocolate stained bib off... :lol: Looks great even before the HDR effects are added. Now that Summer is over I am really looking forward to some league racing when rF2 arrives.

Great looking teaser but it's hard to get my hopes up with only a beta release date of "soon". :lol:

Being drip fed info is better than hearing nothing but that is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Sorry it wasn't exactly earth shattering breaking news, I just thought it would be interesting for some of our resident computer techs. Anyway, this is an interesting read, an interview with Tim dated Oct 31rst......

**Alright I tryed to fix this one but this site does not want to be linked. So you need to type www.issuu.com then in there search bar at the top type in rfactornews, then you'll see two issues. One is the full magazine not in english and the other is the interview, well worth the effort.** Admin

LOL I am one of our resident techies. Admittedly it is fairly cool seeing how much info you can squeeze through a network at a decent rate it's not exactly a hot issue. That's all I meant by my comment. It's nice to know it's still coming.

Oh and thanks for the interview link.

That interview was great. Go read the full interview guys but here is a couple of biggies I got from it and have not heard these before.

1: They will not have the same license system as before( Trymedia)

2: This is the biggie; when you buy the game you get access to there server matchmaker for 12 months after that there will be a small charge for another 12 months. They will be controlling the online part is what gathered from it. <_<

That issuu site is also interesting too, online magazines, some about sim racing. It is also free to make one yourself.......hmmmmm. :P

Looks like &#036;43 for game and 12 months online. Another 12 months will be &#036;12.99. Pretty cheap, but I'm not sure I'm keen on having to depend on them for the connection. As it is now, if the matchmaker is down we can still input the IP address for the server and keep going.

I hope the features make it worth it. I'm mostly interested in league running stuff like auto mod delivery and publishable results.

Just so this is clear everyone won't be racing off there servers like Sony and GT5. This is just access to the match maker server that shows all the server listings to join in the online area.

Thanks for the extra info Gator :thumbsup:
