I just spent some more time on PC2. My braking issue was resolved by changing the load cell sensitivity and re-configuring in game. Graphics wise I played with the settings and got it averaging 60fps and still looking pretty good.

While my initial test of the Porsche GT3 RS around Spa seemed pretty comparable to AC that's not as much the case across the board. While Spa and Brands Hatch looked great, visually better than AC due to better textures, Donnington Park in PC2 looks shite and feels bad to drive too. The AC version is a mod track but looks and feels so much nicer.

I gave some more cars a go and the different cars feel different on the road with good FFB which is good. That said they feel too forgiving making it almost feel closer to arcade than sim. I took the Lotus 98T around Bathurst and I could pretty much floor it out of corners and throw it around and if I lost control I could catch it and carry on. I tried driving it like that in AC and couldn't get around T1. While of course I have no idea what this car would be like to really drive I imagine it's a handful just like in AC. In PC2 a few times I went off track into grass of gravel and it didn't seem to upset the car at all and I could easily drive back on track with little effort and continue. In PC2 this car is 5 speed, in AC it's 6 speed and Wikipedia tells me it should be 6.

I tried the Escort RS1600 and it wasn't as nice to drive as the AC version with the engine sound not as good. I also seem to miss every upshift in PC2; it doesn't allow me to shift anywhere near as fast as I do in AC. Also tried the KTM Crossbow and engine sound of that made to stop pretty quickly.

Still a lot more tracks and cars I can try, but it's just not as good as AC. It's not completely terrible, but I can't see me paying full price for it, and even if I bought it on sale I can't see at this stage why I'd load it up over AC.

Oh maaaaan, that world movement setting definitely needs to be 100, try a v8sc around Bathurst with it at 0....vomit lol
I think I'm close to maxed graphics settings and 100fps locked with 1080ti @ 3440x1440p. Latest driver released pc2.
Spent most of the last hr or so tuning game and graphics settings in Ford Escort race spec @ nurb sprint. More details later

100? I've set it to 0 based on the description saying the higher the value the more movement. I still noticing a heap of movement going up and down hill which is annoying the shit out of me.

Edit: you're right 100 fixed it. The description is wrong.

Hmm found a video on youtube of a guy with the same graphics card as me getting 100+ fps.. maybe I need to update my driver.

is there a brake gain setting like in ac for load cell brakes ?

good little review Joe :)

There is just a brake sensitivity setting. It says if ypu set it to 50% it will be 1 to 1 whats coming through the pedals but wasny able to brake half as hard as i do in AC without locking

I got myself a copy to trial it (arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr)

I tried the Porsche GT3 RS at Spa. Did some laps in PC2, then did the same in AC, then back to PC2 for a bit.

Overall from a quick run it's not that bad. I never tried PC1 as a comparison, but it feels okay to me.

Visually Spa looked better on PC2 than it did on AC, but I was only getting ~40fps with all settings on medium whereas in AC I'm pretty much maxed out getting 60+fps. I turned the rain on and I had my FPS dropping into the mid 30s which sucks. I have a GTX 970 which is overclocked.

I set up my triple monitors in the settings, but that didn't automatically set the FOV which AC does. I used an online calculator and set what it told me and it looked about right. There is no good way to set the driver eye position. While you can change it with WASD keys it doesn't save and it did seem to move around. I would line my wheel up with the wheel on screen then as I was driving it would have moved. I guess this could be a setting to change somewhere.

I was also locking up my brakes very easily in PC2 compared to AC. That could just be some settings to change or to fiddle with the load cell sensitivity on my pedals to get it to how I like it.

There was some texture pop-up at spa, specifically some buildings on the left when heading to eau rouge. The tyre screeching sounds also are a bit annoying.

It doesn't feel quite as good as AC, but it doesn't seem bad. I only had about an hour on one track with one car, and I haven't changed many settings, but I think I'll play around with it some more.
I think in one of the reviews they said set world movement to 100? Might stop the driver seat thing you're experiencing
Edit, just looking at the settings now I think that should be 0

Thanks. I think that was the inside sim racing review. I knew he said something about it. I was gonna go back and check. He also said to set brake sensitivity to 50% which seems to be default now but still too sensitive for me.

Steam reviews are a mixed bag. Lots of comments about not being able to feel what the car is doing and that the graphics are actually hit and miss.

The F2004 does sound great. Found the 49 equivalent very easy to drive. Expected it to be a bit of a death trap but was easy to catch a slide and control.

Well done to the couple of guys that managed to get out of my way at the first hairpin when I missed my brake marker, being on the inside of the track, and barreled up the inside all locked up and smoking.

Haha so that was you! I don't run the virtual mirror but luckily I saw you coming fast on Helicorsa and pulled over to the left  ;D
