Default Re: FlatOut Demo (RIP NFSU2)

Yeah this is good fun, definitely a more promising demo than NFSU2's. Looks and runs great too.

The high jump is a cool feature. I probably need more practice but I'm finding the races pretty difficult though, especially that first track - trying to take the corners and fighting to keep the car straight on the dirt road while the AI cars race off into the distance, leaving me well behind...

It's not quite Burnout 3, but it's maybe the closest us PC owners will get. Nice demo

I think the AI cars should have difficulty settings because I dont think I've gotten past last place yet. Im sure its easy for some other people, but Id prefer some competition, rather than driving around the track alone

I was talking about during the race, not when getting ejected. It surges.

Shocky, fix your PC. Don't blame Nvidia. I'm running 61.77 and have no lockups, or crashing (of the game, my car is almost always crashed).

Ok I found a weird problem. I was playing with my keyboard first to see how I liked it. Had fun so I decided to hook up my force feedback wheel. Well it cut my fps in half or worse. The game became completely unplayable. Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas?

Using my gamepad, I have found a few games that chug with it installed, Thief 3 and Flatout come to mind. I uninstall the gamepad, everything works and is happy. Not sure what it is about my pad.

I have no overclock, and I tried changing to 68.81, no different, even did my first ever driver cleaning

Oh well, I'll give the real game a shot, if it crashes, I'll be pissed
