Is anyone able to overide the 4xFSAA limit with CP in this game? Damn ATI drivers seem to be craptastic as usual and don't do squat for this game.

One of the many reasons why TDU isn't as popular as it could have been.

I don't know on ATI drivers, but you can set the AA to 2x and use the enhance feature on Nvidia drivers. FYI, if you're trying to get rid of the jaggies in the center of the road, nothing will fix that. I've tried turning on 16xMSAA and it still didn't see to fix it. There are just a few things like that I couldn't get to go away.

Yeah, not sure how well this game did on PC but it's no 5.4 million like Undercover I'm sure. I think the biggest part why it didn't sell on PC was cause it was a buggy piece of crap on release.

This pic shows the jaggies. This is with 4xAA on ingame. Yuck!!

What's everyones opinion about Hardcore mode in this game?

I think its fantastic and has a very decent sim feel to it. It's not 100% proper like say LFS or GTR but it's darn good compared to most racers.

I just wanna know who's the idiot that decided that no SP races are to be avail when using Hardcore mode?!!!

I do usually still play mostly in Normal mode due to the fact that I use a gamepad and H mode becomes rather taxing of my attention and abilities in longer rides. Not to mention at speed, H mode is crazy touchy and hard.

I like hardcore mode too but the fact that you can't do challenges in hardcore mode really kills it. You have to keep switching between modes.

The cars don't feel heavy. I'm not sure why. The FFB prevents hardcore mode from feeling more realistic. And the lack of any damage also hurts but lots of driving games have that problem.

Hardcore mode is quite nice with cars that have enough suspension travel. Cars like the S7 behave like they are driving on ice though and due to the quite bumpy roads (or rampy roads) drivablity is rather limited.

Totally agree

My favorite car, the R-34 Skyline is relatively decent to take for spin because of it's AWD. Gots ta love the traction when the cars flying around

Define 'many'. I usually have 1 or 2 max guys in rural areas. In high traffic areas 5 can quickly pop up on the radar. Also obviously depends on time of day you play.

Last night I was doing some racing laps out in the suburbs on my own made up 1 mile street circuit. It's a cool course with tons of blind sharp turns, steep hills, etc.

10 min later I've got 4 other guys following me in their supercars fishtailing and over shooting trying to keep up with my sweet handling Jaguar XKR Stage 0. Noobs thinking HP power is always better.

interesting. the reason i asked was that when i had it installed a few months ago it was rare to see anyone. i like the game. i just wish more people played it like when it first came out ...
