  1. Listen, I've driven round that corner at least ten times now and there's no way it's wider than one car. Fake image! (I more just wanted to amuse myself remembering the helicopter view of Valver's slapstick start to last race, it really was mad how many cars managed to give him a bash around the first corner)
  2. I'm really curious to see (if I ever work it out) what the difference is between the leading pack and the chasers. There's two distinct groups usually within tenths of each other internally but miles apart as a whole. I haven't had much time to learn this track and haven't driven Monza since, god I dunno, Geoff Crammond's GP probably. Hoping I get chance to try a bit more, it's a fun change from everything else I've tried in the game. How the bollocks are we supposed to get through that first chicane together on lap 1? If @Valver cops the same 'everyone anywhere near somehow contr

    Desperados, nice. That, Donut and Control are all perfect GP fodder for me, I wanted to play them but never quite enough to part with money. So what was that one that "Melissa" was jokingly tweeting about a while ago that everybody thought would be GTA5 or RDR2? I don't really understand all that injokey stuff at all.

    My thought process whenever Australia lose at cricket always becomes "bugger, this will let them identify and sort all their problems just in time for the next Ashes"

    That's an incredible result for the match and series. Wish I was in a position to be watching these overnight games!
  6. If you can, a steering wheel is very good for VR. Expensive too, I know. VR seems very much at the sim side of driving games for whatever reason. I found Project Cars 2 a bit better with the pad, for what its worth. There's a few lo-fi arcade ones on Sidequest as well, V-speedway maybe the best, worth a look.
  7. I'm not sure those features are in the iPad version in question. Fresco has the lock transparency if that's any help!
  8. I guess there was also that he was often a disappointment at the big international tournaments where he’d been hyped up as the guy who would change England’s fortunes. Probably to the degree where nobody could meet the lofty expectations but even then. Responsible for some AAA tweets over the years too.
  9. Had a fun little duel with @mrben09 for a few laps early on. I learned a couple of races ago that my fuel consumption always seems to be higher in the race than practice, haven't worked out why yet! So far I'm carrying too much around with me and overcompensating. Then a fairly long lonely stint, which I honestly don't mind right now at least while I'm learning the ropes. Then a TITANIC STRUGGLE with @Valver for the last ten minutes I think it was, I was the faster car at that stage but the one time I made it past cleanly I immediately messed up the next corner and lost the place a
  10. Yeah, feels like I could go double-or-quits on the PartAlert FE meryy-go-round! But I've no spare GFX card to use as a stop-gap while I gamble, I think I'll just try to forget all about this nonsense.
  11. Alright, that's helped a lot. I had to up the TC from the aggressive default to the "someone let a toddler behind the wheel" values I'm used to, but then I could get some laps together and sort my tyres out to a place where I'm almost happy (still struggling slightly to get the fronts to balance between too cold and way too hot). On my own local attempt at duplicating the Hungary race conditions I'm at around 1'27" dead and feeling like I could find more time if I could hook up my line through the lap a little better, so that's a big improvement. Thanks again!
  12. Thanks that's really helpful. Though my experience of trying to do 3 or so laps with the aggressive setup rather than safe one has been comical in the past, I am due another shot at it now.
  13. more noob questions: Setup! I am dabbling in trying to make the car drive better by adjusting things. There are rather a lot of things that can be adjusted, and some of the adjustments can make the car incredibly rubbish to drive, so this is good fun. I've read a few guides and summary sheets that enable me to do some basic stuff without getting too tangled. Good. One thing I've noticed in the last couple of tracks is that my front left tyre pressure ends up quite a lot higher than the others. I gather that we're always aiming to have all four tires in the sweet spot, s
  14. I agree but how much of that £16m pot is from what the broadcasters pay The FA for the rights? If it's none, then fair enough, I genuinely don't know. I do know the FA has taken a financial beating in the past year though and while they're hardly on the same scale as the small clubs they've made redundancies and cuts themselves. Maybe they couldn't afford to give out that money without the tournament.
  15. haha, I had a weird feeling I was confused. Apologies to both!
