Did I say I was impressed by the demo. Great of Rally sim fans I think. Sounds great, graphics great the foilage move as if moved by wind etc. Dunno how much DX9 went into this but i suspect teh foilage is DX9 somewhere as the foilage was in Tiger Woods 2004.

The graphics might be sweet when moving, but it aint exactly a screen-shot game is it. Not knocking it or anything, but all those screen-shots look mostly the same, and theres not much happening, except dull rally track n trees..

Ya you are SS don't do it any justice!

Great sense of speed in it though.

Dull trees in SS but the bracnhes and stuff move and it gives somewhat of a feeling you are actually going thru a forrest etc unlike before when they were cr@ppy 2D things ie CMR2

What do you use to take the screen shot? I just use "Print Screen" Works fine for me then copy and paste to MS Paint. Cheap way but hey, it works.

its kewl for drifting but its too damn easy...

whats the point of having records when you are coming in 20-30 seconds ahead of the curve

graphics are pretty decent for a game of this genre and the driving is fun but if onyl the game were more challenging

sound effects are kewl too btw...

Well, car models are nice, the environment could use some lessons from Rallysport Challenge. Also I couldn't seem to spot any DX9 features... except maybe some PS 2.0 on the track in Japan. The physics needs alot of work though, like driving a boat

Look how leet of a driver I am:

well.. turn off vsync, and see if your fps goes higher. The fps might not be able to hit your refresh rate... 90 refresh rate? so its getting halved.

Also, this game supposly has DX9 features, so that might explain the low fps on the NV side
