Assetto Corsa

The latest news:

Time to make some clarification about the rumours related to pre-orders. We confirm we worked on this matter in the last two months. When we supposed that the entire process was almost ready to be started, our lead programmer unofficially confirmed on his personal twitter account that pre-orders would start very soon. This was supposed to be true. Sadly, in our Country the laws related to e-commerce are very complicated and inadequate for the digital distribution. At the last minute, just a couple of days before to launch the pre-order, we have been informed about some additional documentation and rules that don't allow us to start the pre-order phase already set. This has nothing to do with Steam nor with the development of the game, it's just burocracy. We understand you can be disappointed about it, but well, you can figure how much we are too. Anyway, if we made any mistake or lack in communication, we apologise for it. Everyone can make mistakes, we are not better than any other.

Now we are working on a different strategy, with the aim to meet -as soon as possible - your wishes and our needs. As soon as we are able to give you more information, we'll update you with more details, through our official channels. Meanwhile, thank you for your kind patience and support.

Fair enough.

True... They seem to have learned a bit though.

From what I've heard of the Italian legal system, it all sounds perfectly reasonable.
It's good news though as far as I'm concerned, it shows they're ready for pre-sales as far as the sim goes. ;D

Interesting tweet by Kunos: he said that "uploading Imola and one car is bigger than the NKP installer." Now why would he be uploading Imola and 1 car?

This might be the answer about Imola and one car.

I read about it... It's a limited beta. No AI, no multiplayer. 11 vehicles.

I've only tried the '49@Monza so far, but LOVIN' IT!!! ;D ;D
Wish I could move the seat and the garage had S.I. units instead of whole numbers, but hopefully that will come.
Love the graph that's available in the pits, my brake application is exactly the same time as my throttle lift. ;D ;D 8) 8)
