    Why is old Spa not in the game?!!

    If it wasn't for the hud, the game looks just like Grand Prix Legends.

    I think it's a alpha-build track that was never polished for full release. I'd say you're going to pay for it in a DLC.

    Did you back the game early on? They've started paying dividends, I just received 110Euro :D

    It's part of being an early backer you receive a payment of 110% of your initial investment. Then you'll receive quarterly profit sharing.

    I'm glad as when i signed up as a manager our $ was better against the Euro so I made some gains just on that.

    They aren't doing it for pCars2 though. They claim some sort of legality. More like they didn't realise just how much they'd have to pay out.

    Thanks to the exchange rate changes, it's a nice injection to the new GPU fund. :thumbup:

    Anyone still playing this? I fired it up yesterday and it was fantastic running on a projector screen with my G25. Such immersion! :D

    Have all the expansions, the AI is still garbage so not putting any time in to the game

    PTR is an entertaining read http://pretendracecars.net/

    Project Cars with the Oculus Rift and G920.

    A quick tip, make sure you asign a VR re-center button via the control options menu.

    Yes, I'm thoroughly enjoying Pcars/DK2/g29.. definitely the best way to play it.. and when you're driving all those open cockpit cars.. wowee!!

    Also, Dirt Rally is just as good :)

    I bought at 60% the other day. 28USD.

    Hell I love this game, I was enjoying iracing as a Sim, and I do think the physics in iracing are better, need to do some more laps in both to confirm, but overall pcars is just.... more fun?

    Played a solid 6 hours on it last night

    Does anyone know of any benchmarks that I could look into for Project cars on a specific setup I have?

    i7 2600k
    16GB RAM
    2 x HD6970 in Crossfire
    7680x1440p res (3 x Samsung S27D850's)

    Getting 7FPS (using FRAPS) and borderline playable. I did 20 laps at 7FPS :Paranoid:. Just wanted to know if nVidia GTX970 or 1060/1070 would increase the FPS significantly or if the CPU is also limiting the performance?

    And for some stupid reason the game was windowed in 1080p res. Couldn't change that in the game!
