Are you using a wheel or 360 controller?

I'm using the 360 controller. It set up very easily in Race 07 and since I'm used to racing with it in Forza I'm happy with it in this game.

One of the nice touches of this game is that after a session it evaluates how well the game ran (frame rates) and suggests adjustments in the graphics settings. Cool.
1405  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC] Race 07 - nice price for a racing game on: October 07, 2012, 05:39:51 AM
Having burned out on Borderlands 2 and awaiting XCOM Enemy Unknown, I was skimming through Steam when I saw Race 07. I vaguely remembered this when it came out but was busy with other things. I hadn't been investigating racing games for the PC because while I do have a nice processor (i7-2600S), my video card (Radeon HD6570) is pretty borderline for gaming anything new. However it's fine with five year old games which weren't really all that graphically cutting edge back then. And hey, it's only $2.99 USD icon_biggrin

And for three bucks, there's a lot to it. As a big Forza fan I will admit that the physics in Race 07 aren't going to set the world on fire, but it's a sim and not an arcade racer and with all assists off it does feel right, which is what's important to me. And there's a nice variety of tracks, including reverse Monza which is weird but fun. And a nice selection of cars from fun to throw around Minis to very fast and stuck to the ground F3000 machines. And the game doesn't make you grind through any kind of pyramid or campaign, everything is unlocked from the start. Cars are broken down into series like the WTCC, F3000, Radicals, etc and all cars can race on all tracks. And the icing on the cake is that you can create custom races and even series where you can not only select the tracks, but you can select which types of cars from which series can be raced by you and the AI. So you can go spec racing against up to 24 AI cars in just one car type, or mix in cars classes from all over the performance map. I made a race with all the different cars (I gave myself a fast F3000 slywink) and soon I was weaving through Minis and racing sedans while hunting down Radicals and insanely fast Caterhams.

And for three bucks, it's priced just right. Of course now I'm feeling myself drawn in to get the $52 worth of DLC too Roll Eyes

Since I've read that the game I've been waiting for (for years... ) will not support Windows XP, I don't really know what the best course of action would be. Should I wait for Windows 8? I've read that you can cheaply upgrade XP to 8? But the general buzz isn't very good (don't know why), so maybe buy Windows 7? Is there a general consensus about this? I can't be the only person in this forum who's still (happily) using WinXP smile

There is a demo available on steam, so you can see if it'll run on your system or not. 

I would say upgrade to windows 7.  I was very hesitant to move from XP too, but once you go 7, you won't go back.... slywink

I was happy with XP,  but my old rig was on it's last legs so when I got a new one I went from XP to 7 and am just as happy. Even more importantly, my wife went from XP to 7 on her office computer and hasn't complained at all about the interface.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Well, now that I'm knee deep in Golden Keys (I picked up my third and fourth ones today) I decided to burn a second key at level 27, I had already used one at level 18. This time I got a rocket launcher which wouldn't be all that special, except it scores damage of 10,465, which is about ten times more than the one I previously had eek. So although I've been reluctant to use a space for a launcher, I guess I'll keep this one.

Microsoft has announced that a demo for the open world spinoff of Turn 10's premiere Xbox 360 racer, Forza Horizon, will be arriving on Xbox Live Marketplace on the 9th October.

The demo will allow players to experience the Colorado area of the game with a tidy selection of car models. They'll be able to experience various Festival events including a street race over the fictional Finley Dam. The demo will also allow players to enjoy the Rivals Mode after completing the events, where they try to outdo each other's time. Players will be allowed to explore the entire game map as well.

Finally, if gamers play the demo, they'll unlock a special custom 2013 SRT Viper GTS in the full game.

"Players will be allowed to explore the entire game map as well". Well, that's nice icon_biggrin.

Yeah, an extra $50 on top of base price is a hard sell on a game I'm not sure is going to have more staying power than Most Wanted.

Yeah, I've just watched another developer video and it all "this is great and that incredible", yada yada yada. I'm getting the Limited Collector's Edition just because I'm a bit of a Forza-whore, but since pretty much every car they've previewed on their Facebook feed is something I already have in Forza 4, I don't see the need to spend a lot of bucks for more of the same. And I'd have to hear more about this "major expansion pack" before I buy into that.

Oh, and since I don't listen to music while I race, all those songs included in the music festival is a waste for me.

I'm really enjoying it as well. Although I don't like parts of the 3D interface of the backpack menu, the new "favorite" and "trash" attribute flags are a real time-saver. I'm very geeky about upgrading my weapons, so whenever either in the field or back in Sanctuary I'll be moving weapons around in the slots and using the Compare function to determine which I prefer. I've maxed out my backpack which is rather inconvenient since I'm trying to have a plain version plus one of each of the Elementals for each weapon type. Plus shields, grenade mods, class mods and relics. Yeah, not enough room icon_frown.

I haven't experimented enough with the slag weapons to see if these are a better solution. The Borderlands wiki has this to say:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Slag is a new elemental effect in Borderlands 2. Enemies damaged by a slag weapon will be coated in slag and weakened. Enemies coated in slag will take additional damage from all subsequent attacks, except other slag weapons, which will have a damage penalty.

Now if I understand that correctly, once I slag an enemy, I need to swap to another (non-slag) weapon if I want the bonus. Tricky...

Hey, apparently there's a reset game bug in BL2. Yikes! Here's from Kotaku:

Quote
There is a rather nasty reset bug out there that seems to be hitting certain players of Borderlands 2.

In Borderlands 2, players earn badass tokens for completing certain challenges. Tokens can also be spent on skins and upgrades. As reproduced above by YouTube user RyogaWanderer, players affected by the bug are finding their badass totals reset, while the challenges they have completed remain marked completed—meaning that the players whose totals have dropped can't re-earn those lost tokens. Items and upgrades purchased with badass tokens are also vanishing, without returning the tokens to the players' totals.

Players on the game's forums are reporting that this has happened on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game.

Gearbox community manager Chris Faylor wrote on the forums that Gearbox is looking into a fix. In the meantime, players have suggested a variety of tips for avoiding the bug, which seems to relate to profile save corruption, on 360 and on PS3.

We've asked Gearbox for comment and will update if we hear back.

Here's the link to the Gearbox forum discussion.

Here's a solution mentioned for X360 owners.
Quote
Since it's come down to this being a "profile" save corruption, here are some steps I'd recommend for Xbox 360 users to hopefully help prevent the corruption from happening:

-When quitting from playing, press the start button and select "Quit", then yes.
-Let it sit at the main menu for 30 seconds, then hit the red button (B).
-Let it sit at this menu (the one that asks you to press start) for another 30 seconds, then hit your Xbox button to bring up the dashboard and exit to the dashboard.
-Now you can safely turn off your console.

The reason I say to go through these steps is because I believe the console is being shut down while it's saving "profile" data. Perhaps something is going on at the main menu screen when you exit, but it's not evident. This could explain why SHiFT is involved in some cases, as it's updating SHiFT information at the time. I'd safely assume nothing is being written to the "profile save" at the start menu.

NOTE: This is all theory, and you could go through the same steps on PS3 (just using the PS3 lingo / buttons). I can not guarantee this will save your profile without issues, but it's the steps I'm taking each and every time I quit now. In *theory*, you could shut down the console at the "push start" screen, but I believe exiting to the dashboard may be safer.

In terms of performance, I can play on high at 1080p with my HD4850 and Q6600 without any noticeable drops in performance.

I'm running it at 1680x1050 (or was it 1650x1080?) full screen on my HD 6570 and i7-2600S (2.8GHz). The mouse is a little draggy, but otherwise it looks great at the default settings. I didn't get to finish the demo but got most of the way through the free-form mission.

I'm definitely going to need to look at some data tables once I get the full game to figure out what the heck I'm doing. I'm thinking that those values are accessible in the full game.

I am all for a challenge,but at least let me choose the challenging missions...i expect the missions listed with my level next to them are impossible to do(which enemies with skulls next to their name are apparently so,this time around)

Monkey:-I posted pretty much the same problem yesterday and JZ answered,they are going to release SHIFT codes every now and then.

Randy Pitchford released 1 each for each platform on his twitter account yesterday,but only worked for the first 100 entries

so i have been following him hoping he may release some more,he hasn't yet,and no doubt by the time he does release them i will be too late

Yeah, I'm getting my ass kicked on Normal in some areas as well, especially... (don't look unless you're about level twenty or so, since I don't think you'd have reached it before then) ((even if you haven't, I'll only mention the name))

Btw, if you haven't done much gambling with the slot machine, I recommend it once in a while. You can often get stacks of eridium from it. Makes the ammo shortage easier to bear. 

You also can win weapons too. The ones I got weren't too bad. And I see what you mean about the stacks of Eridium, I got eight at one time. Now I wonder if it will give me the same random chance again or remember that I won it once and so I'll never win it again.
