Just finally bit the bullet and bought into the game. Started off as a Junior for now, but if I like the gameplay, I'll upgrade to a Full Member (probably incrementally; upgrade to a Team Member first, then to a Full Member later on). :)

Been thinking about buying myself into the weekly builds. Always enjoyed realistic driving and this seems to be the game I've been looking for, everything I've seen so far has just been eye candy. What really sold it for me was these excellent screens of the game, they're just marvelous!
Seeing as I have no wheel for the PC, does anyone know how it plays with an 360 controller? Because I'm not really a big fan of driving with my keyboard.

...well, after playing it for a little while, all I have to say is god, it's hard to control! I had to repeatedly calibrate my DFGT, reducing the wheel range each time (it seems to ignore the Logitech Profiler's settings) until I hit a usable spot. The only car I've been able to remotely control to some degree so far is the Formula A. Can't get to grips with the Ariel Atom V8, and just had a quick go on the Superkart 250cc before the game crashed.

Does anyone know any good settings for the Driving Force GT? Oh, also, something weird: every new game (on first boot; not just PCARS) I try to play with the DFGT, I have to remap the throttle and brake; it's always reversed.

It plays well but you gotta tweak it to your liking, i use a DualShock3 and i configure it as a Custom wheel ingame because it gives me a more sensitive version of the controller but some people dont enjoy my settings. :p
The game by default brings a setup done for the xbox 360.

Thanks for the info, I've been convinced to buy acces to the weekly builds. Can't wait to begin fiddling around with the graphics and hitting the road.

Haven't been able to fiddle around much, mostly been trying to find the perfect settings for my controller, when I've had time to play the game. Besides that I'm currently using an old 1440x900 monitor while waiting for my new one to arrive. Should be a few days before I get it, but then I should be able to produce some delicious screenshots :-) But today it's all about Armored Kill (BF3)!

A quick update - My screen is killing the game, bland colours, a few jaggies even with 2xMSAA+FXAA set at high. I shall burn it once my new one arrive!

LoL, bland colours can be fixed probably if you use digital vibrance option in your gfx card control panel

OK, I just tried out the DFGT suggestions I got in that thread, and unfortunately, it hasn't made any difference. The cars are still unstable as hell, even with stability control turned on. I also have to turn the wheel quite a lot, which is weird, especially as the game doesn't even seem to be using 900-degree steering (even though it's recognised in the calibration).

Oh, and the game's crashing a hell of a lot too; I keep getting these messages...
