Racing general / T500RS
« on: September 07, 2016, 04:11:46 PM »
So I sold all my camera gear, spent 800 of that money on Lego (hobby I picked up during my AC break), and have just about enough left that could afford a T500RS.

Anyone have one? Any good? Any other recommendations?

Currently running a G27. Probably won't bother with a shifter as I can't really use the clutch. That said I don't like the idea of not being able to use one should I decide to try, so I may pick one up in the future.

I know there are a few photographers here, so, I'm selling all my stuff as I don't really use it enough.

Selling body, lens and flash separately.

Canon 500D body $200
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II USM Lens $1200
Canon Speedlite 430ex II Flash $180

Can post, or anyone in Sydney can pickup from Northern Beaches or CBD.

Still have boxes for them all. Pictures on gumtree:

I'm still lurking on here but I've had accept the fact that the baby is forcing me to take a little break from AC. Planning on joining in, then not being able to was happening too often so now I'm not even trying to save the disappointment. I haven't even fired up AC on my new gaming rig!

Once he's sleeping regularly in the evenings I'll be back for sure! On this plus side it's given me time for other games and I've been able to finish Witcher 3 and am having a lot of fun with The Division.

See y'all soon

Anyone playing this? I got it last night after hearing a few recommendations and it's awesome. I didn't expect it to be that good, but I was hooked pretty quickly! It's on sale on steam at the moment.


Hardware & Reviews / Got me some new hardware

Finally entered the realms of real PC gaming, no more of this gaming laptop nonsense. Hadn't build a gaming machine in about 15 years; graphics cards got really fucking big!

Hardware & Reviews / New 'work' Laptop and selling old
« on: January 13, 2016, 11:55:00 AM »
Just ordered my new 'work' laptop; Alienware 15 R2 with a GTX980M 8gb GPU. Looks like it's just slightly better performance than a desktop GTX 960, so should be able to push my settings in AC up a little. http://www.dell.com/au/p/alienware-15-r2/pd?oc=y5185a4au&model_id=alienware-15-r2

If anyone is interested once it comes I'll be selling my current gaming laptop which is a MSI GS60 Ghost 2PC (http://www.msi.com/product/notebook/GS60-2PC-GHOST)

It cost $2300 + $100 for additional 8GB of RAM last January. I'd be happy to let it go for enough to allow me to build an okay gaming desktop, so somewhere around $1500. It's still quite a beast of a laptop, yet super slim and light.

Apps / Logitech G19 Live Data
« on: November 23, 2015, 10:35:02 PM »
I was in the market for a new gaming keyboard and Dick Smith had the Logitech G19s priced totally wrong at $70 when at most places it's around $250.

It has a little LCD screen on it, so being the nerd I am I downloaded the SDK and wrote an app to display live info from AC. In the video I'm holding the camera with one hand and driving one handed with an xbox controller hence the wrong gear changes and crashing before I get to third!

Unsure if anyone else has this keyboard, but if you do and want the app let me know.

Assetto Corsa / Feel free to use my server
« on: October 01, 2015, 10:29:58 PM »
I set up my server just to test the web server manager app I wrote and it doesn't get much actual use.

I thought I'd open it up as an XGN custom server, so anyone on the forum can have access to the web server manager and configure a track/car combo they feel like. Maybe check if anyone is on the server before going changing setting though  ;D Seems like it's also a good way to further test the web server manager, and gather some feedback for further enhancements to it.

The server is currently called XGN Joe's Server

To manage the server go to: http://ac.yeahyou.com:3000
Username: xgn
Password: the usual xgn password
Admin Password: the usual xgn password

The interface is pretty straight forward, you can change any of the settings you like, then go to the Server Status tab, stop the server, then start it again. It also scales down nicely on mobile to manage it from a phone.

I know people have been blaming stracker for warping, but if it's running, the stats are on http://ac.yeahyou.com

If you want any custom tracks/cars installed on the server ping me and I'll add them.

Assetto Corsa / Getting a good start
« on: July 29, 2015, 11:13:42 AM »
Any tips on a good start?

People always seem to shoot past me so I must be doing something wrong. I've played around with low revs, high revs, trying not to wheel spin, changing up sooner etc but still usually get overtaken by several people at every start. I'm assuming using h-shifter for cars that have it is quicker off the line?

General Discussion / Budget TV Advice
« on: July 17, 2015, 01:17:06 PM »
Any had any experiences with the cheaper TV brands? Soniq, JVC, DSE etc

I've always had Samsung TV's, and currently want to upgrade but can't really justify ~900 bucks for a 42" Samsung.

Assetto Corsa / GTEye springs
« on: June 13, 2015, 01:04:51 PM »
I remember a while ago somebody recommending the brake spring but has anybody tried the clutch and accelerator springs?

Can't decide whether to just get the brake or all 3.

Assetto Corsa / G27 FFB Settings
« on: June 09, 2015, 03:47:07 PM »
Anyone have any recommended FFB settings? I've been using the default since I started playing, but I did some reading yesterday and found quite a few different sources suggesting different settings.
