Thanks for the series Wally, unfortunately I still find many aspects of this game frustrating when compared to RF2. I will keep an eye out for one off events as I'm keen to see how they develop it especially alongside what I can only assume will be a doomed console release, but I'm not going to be buying any more content from Kunos.

Quite funny you had to throw in the rf2 comment, also a doomed console release whats the point of saying that lol.

Because it's the truth. I do find a lot of little frustrating things that add up to make a big difference to me. I also think that releasing the game on console is pointless and a waste of resources on behalf of Kunos and I don't plan on funding it any more.

Whats funny about it? I think they have misread the console landscape if they think people will drop Forza or Project Cars to play AC on their Xbone or PS4. I would never have purchased AC if I thought they were going to spend time and resources developing it for consoles when they haven't even finished the PC version of the game.

It's also important to note that I am not leaving the league due to anything other than me not liking the title. I think it's ran really well and from that stand point I would race here again in the future if AC gets better or if we were racing another title.

Answer your question did I marty? Lol

No worries, Chris, thanks for racing with us, and have a good birthday.

The console release makes sense from a business point of view. It will make them lots of money, and maybe fund AC2, who knows. I would prefer that they polish up some of the race elements on the PC first, but what I want won't necessarily be the same as their business goals.

KS have said that there are some improvements and optimisations that will find their way into the PC release.

Apparently we might be getting MP time progression in 1.5, which would be nice for a little more immersion, to drive on a track where the lighting conditions are changing.

I obviously don't share your optimism, but as an owner of the AC I hope you are right.

That's the kind of thing I want to hear! Hopefully the track temps will change too.

read this thread, Simone:
https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/4a0asv/warning_windows_7_computers_are_being_reported_as/

You can revert back to win7/8, luckily.  But yeah, this is nasty what microsoft is doing lately.

It's strongly recommended to switch off the recommended updates, and only allow the critical ones - and only manually. Also; running one of the win10 switch-off scripts maybe a prudent step (although too late for you at this point, Simone)

Best of luck in any case!

p.s. if you have a legit windows, call them and pour out your heart to them.  They need to hear about it.  The way they push this garbage on people is not funny.  There must be something utterly nefarious about win10 - more than the already documented spying.  They really-really want everyone on it...

Keep reading.  They've actually put some of the anon back-reporting stuff into win7 updates.   The actual list to disable to get rid of all of it is quite long.  Attached is a bat file which disables all updates that are not welcome.  Look into it how long it is.

But first, reject the win10 update or revert it.

There are programs around that may go even deeper wrt removing the garbage. (one recommendation is in the reddit thread's op I've given you earlier)

Hi Guys
Is the practice server an accurate gauge of fuel use and tyre wear? Not sure where to look to find that info.
Thanks
Ben

I've just checked the practice server. It had the wrong fuel rate, 1.5x. It should be 2.5x, which I've fixed now.

If you've done any fuel calcs based on the prac server, multiply your fuel by 1.7. E.g. if you thought a stint needed 80l, make it 80 * 1.7 = 136.

Tyre rate was too low as well.
