Well done Dave on your first win. If you can do that with only a little practice I'm sure it will be the first of many.

Yeah AJ, was good clean fun.
I only made 2 real mistakes and you pounced on both of them lol. I can do the odd good lap but lack consistency. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

Well done Bruce. Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks??

Did you check your AC video resolution?
Thanks for the suggestion Wally, but I had checked that also. Usually that one kicks you back to the Menu screen. Mine just hangs on the black "Loading track " screen.

Sorry Guys, haven't been able to play AC since Tuesday night. No idea what has happened but AC just can't get past the "loading track" screen. I have verified the files through Steam and tried off and on-line, different cars, different tracks (all default content) but no go. And tonight I couldn't even connect to Team Speak. I don't know what's going on, but it probably isn't good. lol
Hopefully I will be back sooner rather than later.
Good racing all.

Yep I think Dave G. is right Bruce. From memory it was just an in-between Season Fun Run, so we thought that a more familiar track was the way to go.
And don't ever choose a track based on my pc capability, just choose the tracks that you think suit our Fun Nights, I'll be at the back anyway. I do it on purpose, the FPS is better back there.

I say another few fun runs. Even the Season is a "fun run" compared to Tuesday, lets keep everybody included.
Like Roo, I have an old G25 and have had no problems with this track. I believe that there are a couple of versions of this track, make sure you have the one linked at the top of the Thread or maybe download again just to make sure. Hope you get it fixed mate.

What part was it you liked Phil? The "Will I be on the pace Thursday night? Probably not" part??
Yes Dennis, its been quite a while since I've had that feeling.

Just did a few laps of Mid Ohio in the Porsche.
As usual my single monitor was cluttered with Apps giving me all sorts of technical information to help me go faster, but the driving sensation was so real with this car/track combination I decided to turn everything off and just have a clean screen.
And there it was. Sim driving nirvana. Just the car, the track, and an H shifter. I didn't care about the lap times, I was lost in the apexes and the brake markers and the gear changes. For once I could control the tailie rear end, my gear changes were sweet, I could heel-and-toe, and I listened to the engine and watched the tacho. No red numbers and sliding bars to tell me when to change gear.
And then to watch to the replay. The track is visually stunning. I know its too bumpy, but to watch the replay again and critique my driving and just enjoy the vision. What joy.
Did I do a good time or a PB?? Don't know, don't care!!
Will I be on pace on Thursday night? Probably not. Don't know, don't care.
Sorry to waffle on guys, but it really was that good.
