Heh, when is it supposed to arrive?

Here are a few screenshots. It seems a lot like GTR. Also, for those trying to keep their systems starforce free, I think the demo uses starforce just like GTR.

Did you try the other SLI modes and find that AFR2 is the best? I think I'm currently using SFR but I didn't try any of the other modes.

ascully

Yeah I tried them all AFR2 gives the biggest performance increase for sure

The demo has no Starforce plus Starforce is a joke anyway.

Anyway, its a fun game, I just raced the Vette on the GP track and on the stock setup and at highest difficulty (managed a 1.36) and damn it the AI are fast! I managed to get on P2 by the first lap, while beating the heavy Vette into the corners the AI cars (who lap 1.33 unless I block them) were right on my ass! By the 4th lap one AI decided he had enough of me and hit me in the rear side while exitting corner #4! I was pretty pissed that he shoot me off like that, but it was still fun. Very challanging game, the only downside is that you canīt get into max realism (physics) mode unless you pick the highest difficulty (Professional).

The graphics are nice, a good improvement from GTR, but you can see that it is based on the same engine which was nicely improved and finally uses DX9. I know Iīm nitpicking here, but the flame exhaust effects could be a lot better, especially in DX9.

Iīll definitly buy it in October!

Edit: Actually its no surprise why the Vette was so heavy, the stock setup fills it up with gas for 20 laps, but the race is only 5 laps long... duh, thats why the AI cars cornered so fast and I was having a hard time. lol So after I took out all the unnecessary gas (no other changes to the setup), I was able to win the race at highest difficulty (Professional). So the AI is nicely balanced, beatable but challenging. :)

The demo has no Starforce...

Yes it does have Starforce. I installed the demo and when I double clicked on the game icon Kerio firewall asked if I want to give permission to allow Starforce to access some components.

By the way, the demo did not work with my comp. When I try to run the game it cold boots the PC, no warnings.

For me anyway, it had the Starforce dialog at the end of the install where it says driver installed, reboot the PC. Also, the game directory has the "sfp" file that says Starforce Copy Protection GUI Application and there is a sfp.dll protection library there as well.

Well I thought it had no Starforce because I knew my PC had no Starforce drivers installed and it didnīt ask me to reboot my PC, I just started the demo, thats it. However, I just checked and strangely the drivers are installed now. My bad.

i haven't downloaded this demo, so dunno if it actually includes simulation physics..

but Simbin made GTR, which is one of the most realistic simulators out now.. Its got some faults, but its pretty damn good.. Once you get hooked on these sims, its hard to go back to stuff lke NFS.

Looks like they are just tweaking this same ISI engine, thats been out for like.. what almost 10 years now? But if its going to be as good as GTR, the simulation aspect overrides all.

In real play, this game is CPU limited anyways... esepcially when you play online with a full grid.

Actually it's a new game engine, Gmotor 2, thats being used to make Rfactor

oh really? maybe I should take a closer look at this..

I'm pretty sure that was made by some of the original developers of the ISI engine too!

Thats true ISI are making rFactor, but they are not going through EA Sports, it will be like Live For Speed, you download the game, and pay by credit card, and get an unlock code. Hopefully it will be released by next weekend, they were ready to release it this week, but decided to do a few more tweaks before release.

I like it. Basically, if you like GTR, you'll probably like this one.
