I did roll it in the Tooele turn on the next lap... :X

Yeah, I was running a bunch of 2:04's the other night at Chuck's house. Too bad hitting certain curbing in that game pretty much results in an instant spin.

Is that iRacing? I've got the rFactor version - I need to start doing laps...

Computer... We got it through Steam, but I think you can get it independently too.

Hmmmm...I've got Steam. Does it support steering wheels?

Weston

Yup. It works really well with my Logitech Gran Turismo PS2 wheel, and other guys are using Xbox wheels or whatever else they can get to work on a PC.

Great! I've got the Logitech G25 which I'm very happy with. Has anyone compared this to rFactor?

PC or console? Downloaded it to PC this morning - can we play over interwebs?

svochuck
08-21-2009, 05:44 PM
"interwebs" is that like a spider thing or more like an intercooler ? we do play on line and then talk over skype...

Weston and Chris are on some sort of "vision quest" so when they figure out what they're doing the rest of us can make plans...

Cool. I can jump online after the Rockies game tonight, and perhaps tomorrow evening as well.

I'd be interested in joining you guys online if you could post your connection settings. I don't have Skype or a microphone, so I'd have to keep my trash-talk to myself.

svochuck

we will make a good plan for next weekend to do some MAJOR race 07 !

jgray
08-23-2009, 07:45 PM
Sounds good to me. I'm new to Race 07, so what tracks do you guys drive the most (which should I practice on)? Also, I fond a lot of additional tracks here (http://www.nogripracing.com/files.php?subcat=61) for those of you who don't have Miller and others (requires registration). Where are the rest of you finding tracks?

Weston

To bypass the registration issue, I put a Miller and a couple others here: http://www.rm944.com/games/

What car was this in? I've got some work to do - in day 1 I was able to get to 2:18 in a Mini...

That was in the wtcc bmw which is what we drive during the sim racing. They have fwd cars in wtcc as well for you "weenie" types. :P

2-oh-what? Oh look, there's no other cars on track. Chris is playing with himself again.

Beer Fest down in the Springs this Saturday Afternoon... so I should be good to go for Race 07 Saturday Night. ;)

I've heard that were doing race07 this Friday night. Oh yes, it is on!

Wow, I guess it's about time I figure out how to get Race07 working on my machine! Not sure I'll be able to hook up on Friday, but I'll try.

If I can make it at all, I'll have to connect remotely; so if it's not obvious, can someone post the host name and password (if applicable) to this thread once y'all get going? Thanks!

Bottoz

Friday is good. I'll have the Skype Ready.

Gary... I play remotely too. Do you have Skype? If not, give one of us a call around game time and we'll get you the info on how to join the game.

Unfortunately, MMP still isn't live on iRacing yet. They've scanned the track (I've attached a couple of small images of their point cloud that have been published), but they've held off on building it out because they've supposedly been told by track management that some layout changes may be coming, and don't want to spend the time texturing and building a 4.5 mile track if it's planned to change soon thereafter.

Thanks CJ. No, I'm not on Skype (at least not yet); I'll call Chuck's cell if/when I'm able to hook up. Any idea what time this is starting up on Friday? I probably wouldn't be able to join until sometime around 10, so depending on what time this gets going I might end up having to wait until next time.

Gary, it may be worth getting Skype so that we can actually talk with one another instead of dealing with everyone. I'm sure there will be others playing remotely.

svochuck

Skype is free and seems to work well . We will probally just have one machine here on skype but a live mic and speakers so we can all here it. I would put the start time after we eat but plan on a run to Taco Bell around 10ish . Then we game till the fridge goes dry !

Friday night ! Right Chris ?

Yeah, I figure it's about time I get Skype set up and working - I'll try to make that happen before Friday and figure out how to call in on that.

Put me down for playing remotely. I've got Race07 and the Miller track up and running. Is Skype better utilized with a mic and ear-piece, or should I use a web cam and external speakers? Any thoughts?

Joel,

I use a headset when I'm playing online. I've gamed online with others that have speakers and mic and that works, but for everyone else, we hear the sound from your game.

Weston
08-26-2009, 11:45 AM
Headsets are the way to go, and less than $20 if you shop around. The only downside is that it's easier to get distracted by the Skype conversation. Party lines and race cars don't mix very well.

I just went out to get a headset and came back empty handed. I couldn't decide if I needed one with 2 earphones or just one. Does the game sound come through the headphones as well as the chat? IF so then I want the dual earphone config, right?

Yeah, you want the stereo setup... you'll be replacing your computer speakers with the headphones. Once you get one, you'll want to test the game and Skype to get the volume levels right... don't want the game noise to overpower us teasing you over Skype. :D

I think its possible to get a 2:00 flat

Weston
08-26-2009, 11:24 PM
Yeah, I think there are a few seconds left to shave off. I've run plenty of laps in this game where I definitely screwed something up, but still pulled off a 2:04, which is what I consistently run.

Like all computer racing games, the lack of feel makes it harder to find those last little bits of time... it's just trial & error, and there's still a good amount of unexplored territory for that.

Bottoz
08-28-2009, 03:46 PM
What time are we getting started tonight?

svochuck
08-28-2009, 04:54 PM
How about we start starting at 6ish then get the first race up and running around 6:30ish ... ish means within 30 minutes of that time .

So really we will be taking a green flag before 7.

sound good ?
