Assetto Corsa / F1 2017 Server
« on: April 07, 2017, 09:16:49 PM »
As Marty is hosting the practice server again I thought I'd turn my server into an F1 server and run the tracks along with the season. You'll find it searching XGN.

stracker is found at http://ac.yeahyou.com

The cars are the two kunos Ferraris along with three from VRC Modding Team:

(1988) McLaren Honda MP4/4 (http://www.vrc-modding-team.net/download/9)
(2009) Williams FW31 (http://www.vrc-modding-team.net/download/7)
(2015) Williams FW37 (http://www.vrc-modding-team.net/download/12)

It's currently up running Shanghai International from here: http://assettocorsa.club/mods/tracks/shanghai-international-circuit.html

General Discussion / Foxtel Play free month
« on: April 06, 2017, 05:55:12 PM »
Just found this code on ozbargain to get a month of free Foxtel Play, so that will get you a couple of F1 races!

https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/296422

Make sure you click on the go to deal button to go to the page where you enter the code to get a month rather than the regular two weeks. I initially just went to the Foxtel play website and signed up directly expecting the discount code to be at the end  :o

As soon as you sign in you can deactivate the account so you don't have to remember to do it at the end of the free month; it will stay active until for the month.

Mod Tracks / Assetto Flight Simulator
« on: March 11, 2017, 01:25:13 PM »
I found out about this as a dude on facebook posted a video on him flying above Paul Ricard, but basically this guy wanted to test if the AC physics were capable of having a flying airplane, and yes, they were  ;D

General Discussion / Babyproof rig?
« on: February 27, 2017, 07:02:54 PM »
Nothing is babyproof, but I wonder how long this will keep him off. On the right side one gate is cable tied to the keyboard stand so it can still fold out. I was blocking it off with his travel cot but he's strong enough to move that around now.

Hardware & Reviews / CSW V2 vs CSL Elite vs TS-PC Racer
« on: February 08, 2017, 04:36:51 PM »
This is the review I really wanted before I spent all my money but couldn't wait that long.



Basically comes down to the CSL and TS-PC being pretty much the same, but IMO the fanatec rim is heaps nicer. CSW V2 clearly better than the other two, which you'd hope with the higher price. CSW V2 has also just had a $100 price drop.

Interestingly the dude was around 1 sec quicker with the CSW V2 than the other two bases so I guess that explains how Phil is so fast  ;D

Hardware & Reviews / G27 for sale
« on: January 13, 2017, 09:54:13 AM »
Selling my G27. Approx 2 years old (with an 8 months in that period not used). Pedals have the GTEye spring mod.

Ebay tells me the trending price is $250, so $200 for the any XGN members. Sydney pick up or could get a quote to post.


Cheers

Hardware & Reviews / Happy Birthday to meeee!
« on: January 12, 2017, 09:32:03 AM »
This delivery just arrived!!!

Unfortunately the deal I made with my wife for ordering it before I technically had enough money was that the kids could wrap them and give them to me on my birthday, which isn't until the 31st, so this is going to kill me.

General Discussion / Windows 10 breaks triple screen gaming
« on: January 12, 2017, 09:28:22 AM »
http://www.tweaktown.com/news/55821/latest-windows-10-update-broken-multi-screen-gaming/index.html

I literally just re-enabled updates as windows forced me to update before I could buy a game from the store. It did an auto update last night, so assume I'll have the issue described here :(

Hardware & Reviews / Fanatec V2 Pedal Damper Mod
« on: January 11, 2017, 06:30:15 PM »
So with thanks for Humper, Phil, some dude called Nick Moxley and a file, I've now replaced the stock fanatec damper with a mugen one.

I originally found out about the mod via the Inside Sim Racing forums where Nick has detailed how he did the mod. I then found he was a member of the same Sim Racers facebook group as me so I was able to message him and get further details.

I remember Phil had these pedals and had mentioned modding them; he had the mugen damper which were bought in a pair and when he sold his pedals to Humper he also sent the spare damper.

Humper still had the spare and was happy to sell it to me. Don't you love it when a plan comes together! Looking forward to trying it out later.
