Reminded to come back to this thread due to @nathanolder's signature - ref ACC
I have recently bought it and found myself CPU bound which is very irritating..I really must get onto upgrading! (I have used Asetto and Netkar previously and they are excellent)
So, in a fit of pique, I went old school and put Grand Prix Legends (GPL) back on.
I first raced GPL, as a demo, in 1998 and my first PC was built to race with it. A Pentium 2 with a 4mb ATI Rage card!
I joined a league, was a regular on RaceSimCentral and generally was addicted to GPL and was able to get a -11 rank in the end. If you know what that means, you can see it's not amazing, but decent.
Last night I setup the G25 and shifter into a 540 degrees rotation and did a short race at Kyalami. Wow. it was excellent. Maybe the rose tinted racing goggles helped but it was superb.
I thought I had done a few good laps and looked at my best in the game - last updated 2005!! Holy moly. I then had a look for some that I knew I had to beat - usually using the BRM as that is a pig and found I was over 2s away from the 'negative' time for that car at Kyalami.
Another hour later and I have improved and updated my rank in that car by 2 tenths of a second - a update to the scores that only took 16 years to deliver. I am fairly chuffed with that and am now going to aim for my negative 'monster rank' - which is the combined target times for all original tracks in each cars.
nice one. I had a brief go on GPL years ago but never really got in to it as at the time I didnt have a decent wheel etc.
I have just had 3 months out as Iv'e been busy but just got back in on wednesday for my first go back on ACC. It's just so adictive. I still race more on the PS5 as more of my friends are on there, but do use PC now an again.
There really should be enough of us here to get a group together on one platform or another for some F1Technical Sim Racing. With the level and realism of the current sim equipment, anyone who enjoys racing should definitely get in to it!
