  1. Not really mainstream here...but a good sitting in a doctor's office, or waiting for a wife to finish shopping, or on the ^#%*ter... lol... game... "GRID Autosport is primed to arrive on iOS this spring. The complete experience of the desktop game is coming to both iPhone and iPad."
  2. Some of you may remember that I mentioned long ago of a plan to buy a RV and tour the complete IMSA circuit after I retired... well I retired last year, was looking into an RV, and even with a 30k down payment, financing the rest would of been 500 bucks a month for 15 years... we could afford that but after much thought didn't want to waste that money... so... fast forward to today... researching motorcycle cross country cruising... I could pay cash for a 30k cruising motorcycle like the Honda Goldwing... and the thought is to go to each race, sleeping under the stars or in cheap hotel rooms across America... anyone have a cruising MC, or ever done anything similar... just researching now... pros and cons? thank in advance.
  3. Project Cars is free via the game for gold section of the Xbox One store... a great game, probably the best, most sim like racer on Xbox One that works well... pick it up if you haven't.
  4. If your a console racer, I started a club via live called "Gamepad Racing", (you don't have to use a gamepad, just got to realize 90% of console gamers do, so give room.) We have a IMSA season, a WEC season, (LMP1 and GT3 cars), using both FM6 and Project Cars. We will also be having a F1 season using F1 2016. Points and all. Clean racing rules. Also have "Club Events" like the upcoming Daytona 50, the Indy 50, Le Mans 4 hour... etc etc... So, if interested... by the way points and prizes for the IMSA and WEC season... add me on live, Magnum9846 and/or join the club "Gamepad Racing.
  5. end of race, so much more open to moves... and just FYI, the whole race in 3 blocks is on you tube now.
  6. the finish comes on at 1 Eastern on Fox Sports 1. just fyi
  7. Part of the free games for xbox live gold members, Project Cars digital edition will be free 2/16/17 on the XBL store.
  8. I really want to like this game, but it's conversion for console is terrible... wondering if anyone has some suggestions to make this more playable with a gamepad... and no get a wheel is not a answer. First image is their defaults which are terrible, the second is what I've been working with, and the third is another option page which I haven't changed, wondering if any settings there would help. Then a clip of the driving, which gives me a headache... nothing like the smooth pCARS or FM6 gamepad play.
  9. Excuse my ignorance... but how do you host a race both public or private in Assetto Corsa ... I can't find it anywhere on the MP screen... talking about the console, Xbox One version... anyone know? thx
  10. Just FYI... a premium version was released today... 3 DLC's for 16 bucks... 1 new track, the other are cars... needs a lot more tracks for me to pay for any of this, IMO. (since I already have it on XB1.)
  11. Looking good, guess it's coming for the Sports Car series in 2017... http://sportscarchampionship.imsa.com/press-releases/112016/ford-performance-reveals-all-new-global-mustang-gt4-turnkey-race-car-2016-sema
  12. analog, and the new XB1 controllers really have some nice features, IE: force feedback in the throttle and brake etc etc... I of course have the expensive but awesome elite controller. What I hate about it and all games lately... giving you crap, and having to unlock everything with race sessions.
  13. I use a controller... but IMO, no current form of input really meets the sim requirement to make it even close to realistic. Would need a MC handlebar controller... and maybe something like KINETC for XB1 to use for leaning left and right. And yes, it's a racing game... was just doing time trials.
