  1. Ready to race DLC plus V 1.14 patch

    Looks like Zandovoort to me, not sure if I spelled it correctly though.
  2. Ready to race DLC plus V 1.14 patch

    Bought last night, no chance to try it yet, this is the only game I have where I auto buy the dlc, always quality. It will be interesting to see how the wind effects work. Do we get gusts or is wind at a preset direction and speed?
  3. Noone is suggesting you shouldn't participate Archii, it certainly won't help the community if people don't take part in events. I had to miss the last race series entirely due to work and study commitments, when I logged back in a couple of weeks ago I found that the series had been cancelled. Participation is everything that holds communities together.
  4. Had a little bimble about this morning. A bit daunting to see Archii already at the top, I would be happy to get a sub 1.50. I wonder how the tyre model changes would affect lap times compared too back then. Are they faster or slower or just different?
  5. Update 1.12 - includes timed races

    I think that you are correct that it would really only make a difference for endurance racing, and muliticlass racing, there are a few guys around here that are very interested in that, but the lack of timed races and driver swaps made that impossible. Now that timed races are in that removes one of the obstacles. With regard to the sprint races it wouldn't make any meaningful difference to the race itself, but it would be an opportunity to see how it works in a live situation. I did some ten minute timed races around the Highland short yesterday on a public server, its the first time I was able to finish a race in AC and avoid the fade to black as I cross the line, very nice it was too.
  6. How Approachable is AC?

    It is not the 'gamiest' of games single player is not the best, but for the feeling of driving and being connected to the road and machine it is excellent. Bought it in early access when you only had hotlap style challenges. Jumped in a lotus 49 and was instantly addicted. There is a lot of depth to the simulation of the car and the setups you can choose, however the stock setups are generally good and you can just get in and drive. None of the crazy learning curve of DCS, the learning curve is there but in a good way.
  7. Proposed: UK Cup Series 2

    Won't be able to do all these races due to my work shift pattern, but if it is ok to race when I can then I am in.
  8. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    Yep it seems I have a lot of learning still to do around here but the track/car combo was great imo, lets keep it up and organise some more races soon.
  9. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    OK chaps, pls make sure you are on v1.1 of the track as per the link in OP. I tried to get on and found I had the 1.0 version and got the error 'Checksum Failed'.
  10. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    Er, stuck at work can't check. @Darren_Blythe will need to confirm, but I'm guessing he is guts deep in his rig trying to sort out a gfx card at the moment. Can anyone else find the server?
  11. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    Click the padlock and try again.
  12. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    It is password protected, have you got the option selected to exclude password protected servers?
  13. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    That's some bad luck, is it under warranty?
