so who preordered grid 2? - Page 11

post #101 of 165
I would love to try it but I cant load steam because my net is down for the first time in 10months. Some dns thing. Im using my phone filling in time on ocn.

Lol earlier I was playing black ops2 and went on a mad killing streak. people thought I was hacking because I was to quick. I guess having a consistent 5ms - 20ms ping then vg248qe monitors at less tham 5ms at 144fps will do that lol.

Jodiuh and/or Chris13002: Could either of you possibly do a FRAPs frametime benchmark and post the .csv (zipped of course)? In SLI and VSYNC off, obviously.

The FRAPs demo has the benchmarking feature fully functional, so you don't need a full paid version. biggrin.gif

This bit here:


Just get racing, hit F7, counter will go green then disappear for however long you set it to record.

Hey guys, so is there any serious Customization? Or did they try to go Arcade with this one?

Why can't a Company make a Forza like game on PC. It's all Arcade, constantly.
Really liked the First, but with all the time they took and still no real customization, looks like a pass.

Just been released here in the UK, had it on pre order for weeks, so far i'm dissapointed. With a Logitech G25 wheel all you have to do for each corner is tap the brakes, you go sideways, counter steer the same amount each time, every corner feels the same frown.gif

Also the menu's, text and logos seem quite low res even on ultra.

Will play some more to see if things improve.

Its VERY Arcady, anyone expecting a simulation or something in between will be gutted.

Liking the game so far if I'm honest, it's very good. Runs perfect 100+ FPS maximum settings including 16xCSAA (I think it's that?) on 670 SLI.

Haven't played online yet, wait til I get a pad but I think it'll be good smile.gif

Yeah it runs fine on ultra settings (i have 670 SLI too), i just cant help but think it looks a bit like a game that should have been released a few years back graphics wise and it really is very arcady. You drift around every corner. I switch to my xbox controller and strangely handling is a little better, it was obviously meant for console players! Either than or the default steering wheel settings are way off.

Career has been somewhat boring so far, 1 lap races against one other car setting fastest laps and AI is easily overtaken instantly from the start and never seems to catch up.

As i said i will give it another chance over the weekend, perhapse i am too used to really good sims like Project CARs and RaceRoom Experience.

I know GRID never was a sim, i just need to adapt and try and enjoy it

Yeah I was a bit gutted but it is fun for me at the moment.

The graphics in menus and on the decals of the car look like they are 240p at best but the rest of the car looks good with good reflections.

I thought there was a good sim coming out this year that was realistic. I don't know why gran truisms or forza are not on pc. They need to be!
