Bummed about that. I would have thought that restricting players to manual IP entry, to find the room, would be a perfectly reasonable option. It is awkward in itself and with the loss of the auto updates etc there's incentive for most to pay. I can see that I'll have to just deal with it. At least $13 is not too pricey for a year. I just like you bunch too much to stop racing.

Nice bit of on board footage at Monaco, this time without the artsy effects that some people took as evidence of inferior graphics for rF2. All I want for Xmas is...... :rolleyes: :D

Oh so close, some more morsels for us and I will have my bib on from now on. Predictably it looks like 1rst quarter for full release ( all going well with beta testing of course) :lol:

Some more information today. The recap is beta release early January, open beta to last about 6 months before RF2 is released. So there now we know.

Full story. http://www.virtualr.net/rfactor-2-more-open-beta-infos

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
BUT Torque is how far you take the wall with you!!

Oh Shit - I did Apex

OK, so we don't need real feel anymore

we need to learn 'gentle' slip angles on turn in and 'better 60's type' throttle management in order to complete a lap

sounds horrific to me - full out drift driving won't exist - oh well, I'm done, not to mention the wear and tear I'm going to the tires even if I do learn..... not happy nor excited anymore :(

JAMMER, did you read the part about all his spins being for a legitimate reason ? Never did he say to himself, now that's not realistic. If you can drive a real car I am sure you can adapt to marbles off the racing line and changing conditions. :D

downloading the torrents now. doesn't seem like they are seeded very well anymore. Hopefully more will come up and it won't take too long. Most of them are showing about 2 hours download time. I'll probably pay and start playing tonight. :drive:

Update:
FYI - Their commerce servers must be getting hammered. It's not working for me. Seems like account creation isn't going through.

Yup being hit hard, I'll wait for this to settle out a little. I want it but not needing it right away anyways. :D
