I think next month I may donate so I can gain access to the game's current phase of development. Only question is, can I play it without a steering wheel? I only have a 360 pad, other than a KB/mouse obviously.

Yeah I figured as much, since it's supposed to be a console game as well at some point. I was just to lazy to open the Steam browser and look while shooting (not Nazi) Zombies :D Thanks though sir :p

I thought they closed donations for new members, and allowed existing members to purchase upgrades?

The funding is closed, there will be no new members allowed from now on. Unless they open some sort of contest or giveaway some accounts but it may take a while until that happens.

Oh well, guess they don't want my money anymore. Seems like an odd choice, but hey it's their game after all.

That's such bologna that Jonz takes televised races like that and tries to pass them off as in game footage that he makes into trailers. I mean come on, how stupid does he think we are?!

Hi there everyone,

Been a while since my last post and alot have happened in the meanwhile, but before heading into the good news heres a bad one, the Project CARS - 2 day opening that has been spoken to allow new members has been delayed for a while due to external circumstances.
As soon as theres some updates on this matter be sure that i will come here and tell you guys, so be sure to subscribe this thread!

So lets head to the good news!

- [B]The STIG[/B] is back from his adventures and along with[B] Nicolas Hamilton[/B] have been helping the developers improve the physics on many cars, it is still far from finished but showing a huge progress already!
- A new track has been added to the current available list - [B][I]Emirates Raceway[/I] - Dubai Autodrome[/B]
- The [B]Ford GT40 MkIV[/B] has been added recently to the list
- Wet effects added to many tracks
- The Community liveries from the Z4 Contest have been added ingame and are now available to select
- The M1 Procar livery contest had alot of submissions from the Community and the voting currently is underway, be sure to vote in your favorite livery!
- Soft-stop and other steering wheel improvements have been checked in
[U][B]And much more !![/B][/U] [I](wouldnt fit in here)[/I]

Oh and as you know, the best is usually left for last... so heres a bombshell still hot (announced just now) that any racing fan will enjoy:

[B][SIZE=4][FONT=century gothic]Solitude Rennstrecke - [SIZE=4]Pre[SIZE=4]-alpha [SIZE=4]export[/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]!

[/FONT][/SIZE][/B]That's right guys, the first export just came out a few minutes ago and it will be available soon to every Project CARS members!

How does the handling compare with SimBin racers, i.e. GTR2, Race 07? Is the support for G27 good? Any release date yet?

Gosh if the physics are good (i.e. rather like GTR2 than Shift) I am absolutely getting this. It'll justify my massive computer upgrade when Haswell comes out. :p

Support for the G27 is pretty good, theres alot of info and other players currently using that wheel. You also have a default profile set ingame for the G27 and different pedals combos.

Physics are more alike GTR2 than Shift or Shift2, the concept of this game is to be a racing simulator and not a simcade or something alike. The road is still long until the perfect physics can be achieved but we have alot of help from the community, Ben Collins aka The STIG and Nicolas Hamilton.

The update is up, but i suggest you [b][url="http://forum.wmdportal.com/showthread.php?12736-Build-402-%288-2-13-Team-Member-%29"]read the forums first [/url][/b]before trying as it requires some FFB files to improve the FFB overall feeling. Dont forget to delete your profile when installing the new patch.
Then go and try some of the cars like the Focus RS, Pirault Mega RS, Caterham R500, Formula B (has 3 tire models for testing you can read @ the link above).
