Internet multiplayer support for GTR is a confusing mess. Let me know if rFactor is any better.

Well it's finally out. Anyone else picked it up yet?


EDIT: I managed to put in a few hours this afternoon and am really enjoying it! The graphics look much better than in the demo, and the city circuit they put together is really nice.

Err... you posted this today? rFactor's been out since Wednesday. Personally it's an amazing platform, I haven't had much seat time(racing GTR still) with it but it's very promising. I can't get into the fake cars, although the open wheel cars are very cool. And I've never been into open wheelers.


I don't know what part of GTR ileff thought was a mess (maybe the login part?) but rFactor's menu system is pretty unorganized. You really have remember where everything is.

I was trying to join an Internet race from Arcade mode. I guess that is not supported because the lobby was always empty.


I had a little better luck from Simulation but it seemed the login servers weren't working correctly.


I finally threw my hands up because I was wasting too much time. I have no problem playing Colin McRae 05 on the internet.


I'm looking forward to trying 360 on Live.

You're right about the lobby. Simbin's "lobby" execution is probably the worst I've ever seen. The other day the lobby was down for 12hrs! And even if you want to connect by direct ip, you HAVE to authenticate against their servers. And the worst part, you have to have a persistent connection to the lobby while you're racing!

Simbin? Arcade mode?


Are you talking about GTR/GT Legends or rFactor?


I don't think simbin has anything to do with rFactor, although GT Legends does use the same gmotor 2.0 engine...


/me confused...

I've been playing this (r-factor) for a little over a week and I must say that it is terrific. At first I was very underwhelmed until I really started poking around and discovering settings. Then I downloaded the F3 mod and a new texture pack for the mills course and all I can say is wow. When it is run at full details at high resolution with upgraded textures it looks just as good as anything I have seen from PGR 3 and almost certainly plays better.


This game is designed from the ground up to be a base for mod work and MANY incredible mods are already on the way.

Check it out.

I've been thinking the same thing mking. I'm going to try and put a replay video together on the street course and see how it stacks up to the pgr3 footage I have. :D And in this game I can use force feedback, and a clutch! There's nothing like screaming into a corner, braking at the last second, dropping two gears, and feathering the gas before reengaging the clutch to keep the car balanced coming out of the turn.


Now if someone could just get hold of bizarre's city models, we'd have one hell of an rfactor mod :p


And if you haven't poked around in the .plr file yet, then you should check that out. I was able to turn on a few special effects that weren't showing up even when the in game settings were maxed out.

Thanks I'll try that.

I do think that the city course does need some new textures before it will stand up to PRG 3, but that's the great thing about rfator, you can add all sorts of new stuff!

On second thought, could you please post a few details? I'm not really sure what I am poking around for. :eek:

Do you have a link to some sites with these mods? I bought rFactor but haven't played it to much yet. Hope to get some time this weekend.


Thanks,


Jim
