    That split screen thing is a bit weird. I like the principle, as you don't need that much screen space vertically, but it's a bit distracting. Is that on by default?
    Haha no, that's something Team VVV add to their videos. And pretty much everything I've read disagrees with Y2Rich so I wouldn't pay much attention.

    It's fine, I'm sure they've done a lot of tweaking for the console release but the AI I ran against a couple of weeks ago on the PC version were no better than the AI in pCars at release.

    Well I mean the a.i in pcars could be pretty frustrating and dirty, but at least they were interesting and challenging to drive against.

    It could have done with improvement but it wasn't exactly what I'd call bad racing a.i.

    Anyway, what's the online play on this like?

    If we have enough ps4 players maybe we could get some eurogamer weekly racing going on like we had with project cars?

    Supposed to be decent now. Doesn't seem like there's much interest on here though.

    :D I did edit my post when I realised my blunder

    It was certainly playable on private servers, avoided the public ones like the plague though.

    Very rarely do I get hit by the AI in Assetto Corsa when I haven't done anything to deserve it. I think the general consensus is that the AI is good and has come on in leaps and bounds. It's certainly far from a car crash.

    I've had some decent battles with the AI in Assetto lately. They'll certainly happily run side by side through corners and back off when needed now without t-boning you into the weeds like they used to.

    Really looking forward to trying it with the wheel. Is it relatively plug and play or is there a lot of fucking about with feedback settings?
  • Deleted user 18 August 2016 18:06:32
    For me the feedback is the best it there, better than rFactor 2. I haven't had to manipulate anything.

    Googling will reveal that it's a giant pain in the ass to setup, until you realise that some people are just weirdly obsessive about force feedback settings and like getting lost in spreadsheets.

    Mostly it's a case of setting the overall strength to something around 70-85% and the centre spring to 0 in the control panel and then letting whatever game do the rest. A lot depends on your actual wheel but there's usually a forum post on Steam or Racedepartment with settings people have agreed seem quite good.

    Yeah I've had the wheel a while some I'm aware of those lunatics. Just wanted to know if you had to endlessly fuck on with sop settings and stuff like project cars.
  • Deleted user 18 August 2016 18:21:35
    What wheel do you have? The t300 just works for me, miles better than the Logitechs I've had before.

    Yeah T300 as well. Had a few problems with reliability but it's an amazing bit of kit.

    Aye, T300 here too. Like Aaron says, Assetto works perfectly with it out of the box. I bought it as I got sick of fighting the weird Logitech Win 10 update issues of my faithful old Driving Force GT. It really is a night and day improvement.

    Level of track detail looks decent. I'm quite looking forward to it now.

    I think in terms of track detail assetto corsa is the best, don't they lazer scan (or whatever it's called) every track in the game?

    Are they doing any marketing at all for this game? I know it's already on pc but releasing now on console is a big deal, it's out in 6 days and I haven't seen a single ad. Any other racing game's thread would be starting to get a bit more active due to people anticipating the game by now, what's going on?

    Hopefully it'll arrive on Thursday on my day off. Originally had Friday off but shit happens.

    I'm hoping it feels great with a wheel. Hopefully it'll work well for pad users unlike Project Cars where most people probably spent more time adjusting settings than actually racing... Myself included.

    @Nitrous I just used the default on PJC, worked fine for me. I never really understood the massive amount of adjustments people were moaning over. Then again, everyone handles the cars differently I suppose.

    @Globalmeltdown

    PS4 as that's the system I have a wheel for :)
    See you on Forza horizon 3 no doubt but I'm away for the 1st week it's released.

    Really looking forward to this. A EG league would be pretty sweet. I'm sure plenty of PCARS, DiRT Rally fans etc will be making a purchase

    Just in case anyone wasn't aware, this doesn't have private lobbies, so setting up races might be tricky.

    Judging by the tweet made by Assetto Corsa, it's probably going to be implemented at a later date. Still, a little disappointing

    Yeah that's pretty poor. Mine has totes been dispatched though.
