  1. https://ar12gaming.com/articles/forza-7-competitive Multiple usb support sounds interesting and the cockpit optimizations for wheel users
  2. May I ask for a setup. I am no threat I don't believe
  3. Still haven´t found a rally car that drives without gods hands. I will just run the career some then be done with it. Anybody figured the my team stuff out? I have some C-license guys but they have lower specs then some E-license engineers, pr agents etc? Is there a multiplier thing going on so a C-license but lower specs engineer still performs better? So far only at one time I got so much damage I got close to penalty time so not sure they are worth the cut anyway. I will not spend anymore in adding more engineers.
  4. I am sure there was a good race. Impossible to know following Eurosport. Commercials every 10 minute and they refuse to focus on battles on track. I had no clue at all what was going on following that. Rather then following the GTE Pro battle at the end it´s better following a limping #8 Coyota or find some guy in the pit lane or audience or whatever instead of booring cars that is actually racing. I just don´t get it? To bad the P2 didn´t win . Hybrid systems is getting to complex for the P1s it seems.
  5. That´s quick
  6. X 1080 ti installed up and running again I found the my team menu. Not sure its really worth investing anything in that? So far I have never been anywhere close a penalty for repairing the car and never have to buy any cars it seems. I could afford to before spending it all on upgrades though. Pit crew etc cost money but not sure they will do anything good for me
  7. Yes my X 1080 just died. Shouldn´t blame it on Dirt 4 though
  8. And it crashed my PC. I had a pink screen of death after a session of Dirt 4 yesterday but that I could recover from. Worse today light blue screen of death after some hour of racing during the loading of windows 10 and a complete reinstallation will see how that goes.
  9. Unlocked some more cars and there is fun to be had so there is nothing spectacular. Just nice with a change. Nice speed sensation in the class A cars the extra grip do help reduce the amount of frustration and there is just about enough power to loose traction particularly if you shorten the gears. Best way is probably to run with long gearboxes though. Big disappointment to see that Höljes and the other rallycross tracks from Dirt Rally make a comeback. Particularly Höljes is just awful.
  10. Dunno but it would surprise me if it couldn´t in these coop oriented times. I only run these arcade titles in single player for fun. Tried the sand buggies but I would not want to race these online I would get so pissed lol. It´s essentially all about survival and if you don´t take the start you go blind due to all the smoke effects and you just have to floor it if you are lucky you ram whatever is ahead in a good way or if you don´t you crash but step off the throttle and you are being rammed yourself and there is no way through. There is no gentlemen racing in these cars the way they jump around and everything Physics felt good and the tracks while short was much better then the awful real rallycross tracks in Dirt Rally. I would never want to race them irl they felt that bad to race. The cross carts had snap oversteer whenever I dabbed the brakes. Not sure if it can be fixed with setups? Doing some more rally on tarmac so much grip really hard to make the rear brake loose my f1 2016 driving style do work quite well but the settings is quite realistic. No widened roads and quite long stages reminds a bit of rally 2000. But Still to find myself in a rally car I like but I have not bought any yet just driven what is given to me. Wonder what I would aim for in the classified section. There was some old lancia but maybe better to go for a newer lancer.
  11. Yes often you are best mimicing the gamepad in Codemaster titles. I never run 900 degrees in any rally sim need to get lock to lock in a reasonable amount of time Need to access new cars but provoking oversteer is really really hard due to that invisible steering aid to keep everything in line. I can see how that really helps with stability on a gamepad though I guess I have to try that as well. I am gonna let it mature though. They have not optimized the stage times at all. On tough you win some races with 30 seconds while on other it´s not possible to get top ten positions. And they haven´t totally excluded VR support. I was about to boot up Dirt 3 again but then they made some progress. Dirt 3 only allow one controller in Dirt 4 I can at least use separate usb pedals. There is ways to fix it though with some software I believe.
  12. Picked it up yesterday. It´s the sequel to Dirt 3 simple as that. Long time since I touched Dirt 3 though but in that it did feel I had full control over the wheel. I disabled all aids but during the first tune in run I didn´t have my controllers configured and I didn´t unlock the highest AI difficulty so I don´t know if I am stuck on an amateur driving model or something. If I have the wheel and driver enabled it´s clear to see it´s not 1:1 with my wheel movements though essentially he just go left and right like crazy where my driving style is more calm. And while driving it feels like there is some magnet that tries everything to pull me back on the road or keep on it. Maybe it´s just the starting car but it really feels like a hidden steering aid. I have triple checked the options and all driving assists is off. Anyway the physics may have been all that but it can´t match Dirt Rally just due to VR and the immersion and feel for the environment it gives. It feels rather underwhelming tbh may try Dirt 3 again.
  13. Got it on some sale at humble bundle for 19 euro. Campaign is still going I believe. Started a career with Sauber. Put AI on medium actually my self esteem is so low I contemplated low but on this I outqualified marcus ericsson with over 3 seconds and put that Sauber 6th on the grid. Used the race strategy they suggested after my testing in practise one and it worked quite well start on super soft then pit be well behind everybody before pitting for next stop. I wanted to reverse it but the x button to reverse strategy did nothing? AI didn´t seem to gain pace until the last stint I lost some positions sleeping behind the wheel and trying to monitor the fuel load at the end of the race. Maybe some rubber band effect adapting to my pace? Just wish they wouldn´t simulate need for fuel savings. Where is the fun? Gonna focus on upgrades that bring better fuel efficiency Going to lean mixtures is really noticable on lap times. Game thing I am doing awesome on the tire saving part at least. Ended up at 7th though a bit annoying see my fastest lap was actually competitive for higher positions. But to many laps required on lean and some time lost managing the buttons and opponents getting a free pass while cruising. Cost two places at least. Without aids it´s actually pretty damn challenging be close to the limit. You lock brakes in no time and it really destroys the balance of the car. I lowered the brake pressure a ton figuring you would pretty much always want 100 % brake pressure as in Dirt titles.
  14. I would jump the DK 2. I doubt you would feel the resolution would be enough for serious racing so either it will make you feel VR is not mature enough or you spend money on both the DK 2 and a CV1. CV1 is good enough for me for racing. It´s quite demanding on your hardware though. Supersampling does help to produce sharper images and compensate a bit for the low resolution. In Assetto Corsa I felt my i7 4700K at 3,9 ghz and X 1080 was bare minimum to get close to smooth framerates. I want at least 75 hertz in VR but preferrable all 90 hz. Really hope my I7 7700K will give a healthy boost here. Something like Live for speed is a lot easier to drive though and it´s clean graphics is good for VR.
  15. Sandfloorp seems about right. Try joystick perhaps arthur :).
