Cool, this game looks amazing... well... it did...

Look at the screenshots. The ones from May are almost photo realistic. The recent one from July 13th looks like a game from 1998 though. Whoever took that shot should be slapped for making the game look so bad :|

Nice way to kick off the weekend. Screens look pretty damn good. I'll check the trailer in a little bit.

anyone know if they still plan on doing those "live" ingame ads?

as in the billboards on the track,are updated regularly over the internet..

I have mixed feelings about it.

I'm still probably going ot get it, since I really liked GTR..

Hey, what we should do sometime is setup a Nvnews sprint race.. Like a relatively short 10-15-20 lap race.. (15 mins to practice, 15 mins to qualify, 20-30 mins to race) That would be fun.

Who's down for that?

I wish I would have really drank to much last night so I couldn't go to work today. But here I sit with a hang-over :barf: headache, in my cube, void of GTR2.

How’s it handle? Does the crash debris look good? Has anyone tested it with the TrackIR yet?, I think read somewhere that it supports the TrackIR out of the box. OOOooo man I wish this headache would go away. Mmmmm maybe I should go home but I've called in allot lately.

Handling is easier than in GTR1 and I definitly had less spins. Itīs not that easy to drive really fast laptimes, because even after 20 laps I didnīt get into 1:39s on the Lambo. I didnīt notice much crash debris, yet. Yes it supports TrackIR out of the box but I donīt have TrackIR so I couldnīt test it out, however mouse-look works nicely so Iīm sure TrackIR will work nicely as well.

As other ISI2-engine games, AF needs to be forced in the control panel and I noticed some strange AA behavoir. When I set AA (level4 = 4AA??) with the GTR2-config program and leave it at application-controlled in the CP, it looks quite blury ingame, however if I force it in the CP (and disable it in the config proggie), the blur is gone. :confused:

I hope it's not dumbed down but just better more correct and realistic handling. Does it still have Arcade, Semi-Pro and professional. I would race in Semi but have fun time trials in professional.
I know with GTR1 I would always run 2048x1536 4xaa 16xaf forced in the CP W/gamma & transparentAA. I'm hoping to run a min of 1920x1440 with the same settings, it makes all the fences and lines so much smoother.
I've already got this guy downloaded from the T3 at work, burned it, now I just need to go home for some lunch time racing.

Agent kay. Does this game have the le mans track in the full version? It should do. If they have Imola they should have le mans.

Iīm not sure about LeMans because these screencaps are taken from the full (beta) version and it is not included:

People over at rscnet have screenshots of Bathurst, which wasnīt in the digitaldisplacement list so who knows, the retail version might have LeMans as well.

Why would they put starforce on a demo? I'm pretty sure they're not worried about someone pirating it. :p

As far as the demo goes, I'm not impressed. Maybe I'm just too spoiled with Project Gotham 3.

Most games that use starforce have it on the demos as well. Probably so it "infiltrates" your computer early and your system is all prepared for the game when you buy it.

real reason is so pirates can't compare demo exe to retail and find any weaknesses. it helps them to crack it

Yes it still has the 3 modes. I wouldnīt say they dumbed it down but the cars do have a lot of grip and apparently people already broke the 1:35 (Barcelona) time while the RL record in that year was 1:40 something. I still think the cars handle very realistic and they are definitly not easy to drive at the limit.

The demo is actually smoother than GTR1 ever was on my computer but visually it's not the biggest step forward. I still like the visuals but people who expect fancy effects like motion blur, normal maps, true-DX9 flames or particle effects, etc, will be disappointed. The car models are the best that I saw in any game so far (both outside and inside).

nekrosoft13, yes many indicators point towards a Starforce-free version of GTR2. GTL still had Starforce and so did its demo version but thats not the case with this demo. :)

Thats a shame because they are no track where you can really stretch the cars out for top speed. Belting down the mulsanne straight at 200mph would have been awesome.
