Thursday Nights fun racing / Alfa GTA Dick Skin Downloads....
« on: May 16, 2015, 10:07:12 AM »
Alfa GTA Dick Skins...

Have you got a Dick Skin? Well you should!

When I make changes to currently released skins I'll just be uploading the .dss file instead of the whole skin folder to save time and bandwidth. so we will all need to unzip/install these archives in the right order to maintain integrity.... or something like that... But once you have installed the list of skin packs. you will only need to install the latest one when released.... Confused? me too.

Current skin packs:
Note: please unzip in the following order: and overwrite any files when asked

Drop Box Skin Pack 1/

Contains the following:
Skins
Bacchulum
Bird
Dick
Flattop
Guybrush
Krahl
Marty

Drop Box Skin Pack 2/

Contains the following:
Skins:
Gratulin
Grubbet
Joe
Wally
changes:
Bird's rear end more added.
Flattop's license plate fixed and more added.


Practice server is up to date 16-May with the above skins.

Assetto Corsa / Dick's among men.
« on: March 29, 2015, 09:06:07 AM »
Greetings!

 After a some serious down time from gaming I am tentatively returning. The weather is getting cooler so I won't have to sit in a sauna.
I did the computer upgrade a few months ago and it never recognized my G27, (just doesn't even know it's there) Didn't stuff around trouble shooting so I downed tools and went outside..

Now, a few months later I've just bought a new BMW 116i... Totally out of my league in class, style and value. So I thought I better go back inside.
 Speaking of class and style, I have learnt nothing while being away. (hence the bmw) I will be catching up on how AC has changed. I'm sure crash damage is still quite boring? Cause i'll be doing a lot of it...

I hope everyone is well, even Marty? Everyone still here? well hello all! old, really old. and new!

Who is skinning now?

Assetto Corsa / Trento-Bondone
« on: November 08, 2014, 10:18:10 AM »
Today I found out where Trento_Bondone is..
It's in Trento, Northern Italy..



I also finally found it in Assetto Corsa.
It's under the Practice tab. and only the practice tab.... go figure..

Timing isn't really working but I did a 14:25 something. In the Cobra. Hit a few things... You guys should be closer to 12: something for 1st attempts!  :)
Only just touched 3rd gear twice I think. The rest is 1st 2nd gear. Was fun.

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Forget season 3....
« on: October 11, 2014, 01:20:18 AM »
Season 4 is going to be awesome.
I'm sure we will use pit stops to finish off season 3 though?

But I vote for anything other than BMW or Lotus in season 4... Just sayin' lol

And every round at Spa.

Found this collecting dust in my local store...
https://www.ple.com.au/ViewItem.aspx?InventoryItemID=616043&CategoryID=407

Next will be CPU and RAM.

Assetto Corsa / Drag Racing.
« on: August 31, 2014, 10:39:28 AM »
It's how I found AC..
Not sure if anyone enjoys drag racing?
I was searching for a drag racing game cause I like the sport. Not a fanatic or anything. Just like the absolute raw power. Wanted something with lots of settings.
 and AC came up in the search and here I am today. Only just getting to drag race. With track cars..
Still needs work. There is no dialing in a time. The xmas tree lights are one style only. But they work! Can't seem to record times properly, timers still start from when you stage. So you only get the time at the end of a lap to one decimal place..

12.8 is my best time 400m  1.17 reaction time.
BMW DTM.

Assetto Corsa / The Smoke Dick Challenge!
« on: August 29, 2014, 07:57:49 PM »
Something Marty and Guybrush both enjoy doing..

what? I hear you say.

The Smoke dick challenge
Beat my time of 15.12.611
Car BMW M3 E30 DTM

Fastest Smoker to date: Bird 12:30.204

Bird 12:30:204
Marty 12:40.159
Lemmy Caution aka Flattop aka Bruce 14:14:15




Quite simple really.

WARNING The timer doesn't work as you go past the 1st gate. You need to organise your set up then escape 'restart race' then hit the steering wheel icon and plant your foot. might loose a second or two. It records your finish time though.

The track is point to point..
Transfagarasan North. Hill Climb V0.4K
http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/transfagarasan-north-wip-v0-4k.13058/

from the AC link: Drdoomslab:
Hello Everyone. I'm very pleased to let you all know that I have started on this awesome 23.6km road and have been given permission by Goibaka to convert and update this track.

From the Transfagarasan wiki page:

The Transfăgărășan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraș) or DN7C is the second-highest paved road in Romania. Also known as Ceaușescu's Folly,[1] it was built as a strategic military route, that stretches 90 km with twists and turns that run north to south across the tallest sections of the Southern Carpathians, between the highest peaks in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu


There is meant to be a few holes but I didn't find any. I did roll a few times down the mountain and went back to pits so my times is quite conservative even for me. 13 odd minutes is the WR atm on RSR
quite a nice track. Not a drift circuit.

What do you win? The warm fuzzy feeling you get knowing you have smoked Dick!!!  :o

Assetto Corsa / Ok. I'll say it.... Nords for practice server.
« on: July 16, 2014, 06:24:48 PM »
What do you think? Handful of different cars? Snoopys nords?
Is it possible Mr Wally?
If it's a stupid idea I'm cool with that too. i'll say it was Marty's idea.

IF YOU told someone 20 years ago that a car company was turning video gamers into real racing car drivers they would laugh in your face. But for 28 Aussie hopefuls, that’s exactly what they were hoping to happen at the Australian Nissan GT Academy finals over the weekend.

I'm spewing i missed out on signing up!

Assetto Corsa / The: Let's hassle Wally about next season thread..
« on: June 29, 2014, 08:32:53 AM »
Ok not hassling really!  :D
Maybe Wally has got it all planed out, some major touring trophy, with sprints and enduros, and more spread sheets than a Vatican accountant.
Maybe he has no idea and doesn't even care.

A few of us where chatting about it last night, Lack of choice, even though there are lots of cars seems to be a issue and not enough tracks?
I'm happy to race anything. Though I will probably go reserve next season to give someone else a go.

If I was going to vote on something it would be for real life tracks. That part of AC really appeals to me.
Really I'd like to want to know so I can get working on skins!

How about you guys? Any thoughts on next season?
