    Any FANs of Simulation Racing games like Colin McRae 04, 05 ; Formula 1 series, NFS Porsche, lets discuss/share some Tuning / Setup & Strategy tips here.
    & also some great moments in Games.


    Tuning & Car Set-up Tips:

    :arrow: NFS Porsche Unleashed.
    Any car that you buy in "modern era" can be tuned for better handling, max speed...
    for example: Porsche 911 Turbo (2000)
    In "car setup" Increase the Downforce for Front ==>97/100, for Rear ==>93/95.
    Install the Performance Upgrades(as usual).

    If any one interested on setting "Gear Ratios" for race Class cars, then ask.


    :arrow: Colin McRae 04/05

    Before starting a 'Race' in Championship or Career mode,
    ==>take a good look on the "Stage INFO" of the two stages, (it shows the road surface type->light gravel, pea gravel., wet tarmac..)
    ==> & then Selcet a Appropriate Tyre.
    ==>Adjust the "Ride Height" acoording to the Track.
    e.g. high ground clearence in Australian Stages will give better result + less under-body damage.

    ....more on request

    :arrow: F1 Challenge '99-'02

    Useful Only for those, who play this game with foll. settings ==> Drivers AI- more than 98%, AI Drivers Agression-> more than 40%; race length ->more than 35%

    ==>In Championship Races, Plan the Pit-Stops, Start-Fuel, Tyre Selection.

    ==>Always see the Info on Track condition before heading for Race.

    ==>In "Advanced Settings" you'll find lot of Tuning Settings.
    e.g you can set the Engine+Gear box to give Quick(high) Accleration + Decent Top Speed, which is really needed in Monaco Circuit.

    .....more on request.

    Hi s18000rpm nice to know that u to are interested in racing games I have played all the games u have mentioned except Colin McRae 05 I have played only the 04 version.

    But the game i play the most these days is F1 99-02 2006 MOD.Although the MOD is spanish i manage to configure it using google translator.
    Right now i'm playing Suzuka with both aggresion and AI skill set @100% whic i can i win. U need to manage laptimes of 1.33.00 to keep in touch with AI Laptimes . I have a personal best lap @ 1.32.075.

    I would love to play against u someday and BTW do u know where i can i download the 2006 MOD(English version).

    Re: Colin McRae 04,05 + F1 Games Discussion

    FINALLY a Simulation Racing FAN, YES!!![​IMG]

    i'm so happy:D:D:D[​IMG]

    i too bought the F1 2006 Mod, i tried it on my cousins laptop, the gfx. was bad in it, so thats why i' havent tried it.

    but i'll try it 2night.:)

    all those modders did was, changed some audio (that too partially, which is real pain in butt:x), btw, is there any change in "Texts"?

    btw for mods you can have a look @ CTPD 2005 , Black Hole Motorsports & BoomTown. (though boomtown servers are really slow)

    i couldnt find 2006 mod, sorry:(

    btw try to get the Colin McRae 2005, its a fantastic game, you'll surely love it.

    much better gfx. & loads of tracks, like Germany, & each Country has 8 stages:shock: + 1 Super Special Stage.(not all country have SS)

    In Colin McRae 04 (CMR04), which type of Gear box you use.?

    & for F1, do you use Steering Wheel.? i'm using GamePad, with that itself i'm beaten badly if AI skill & Agression set over 85%.:x:D

    the thing is that the steering input is not too smooth. (thru gamepad joystick).


    when will you be free next week. i'll set up Hamachi server & then we can play online(LAN).

    CMR 04 doesnt run this PC (runs fine on my cousins), the gfx. is corrupted, i tried updating..etc.etc.. nothing worked.

    i guess i asked you too many Questions at a time.:D

    I :-x at your being pissed off by killing and gory games(as they are great):D.I rarely have played a racing game,so this is not for me.
     
  16. Re: Colin McRae 04,05 + F1 Games Discussion

    In hitman. It is not necessary to kill. You can use stealth and you need loads of patience and time consuming.

    Re: Colin McRae 04,05 + F1 Games Discussion

    i love killing in the games :twisted:, but there's a limit to it man, wtf mp 2 & Hitman, FEAR... all these games got so much AI to kill:x, it just gets boring sometime.

    but take racing, (not NFS) like GTR, GTR2, CMR, in that you've to Set Lap Times, which helps in Strategy of your Race:D... its just THRILLING:D

    try to get CMR05 or GTR2 & play it for sometime, then you'll know What i'm talkin:)
    Shear Speed, Performance, Thrill...
