    DTM Experience 2014 Launch Trailer
    by Sector 3 Studios

    The latest DTM Experience has been released, adding the 2014 cars, tracks, and regulations. This comes as part of a massive update to RaceRoom Racing Experience which also means the content from DTM Experience 2013 can now be used with content from RaceRoom Racing Experience.

    Now we can open up the DRS and go all the way around the Nurburgring GP, rather than just the sprint layout, or any of your favourite tracks for that matter. Be sure to check out this update, along with all its other features for DTM Experience 2014 and RaceRoom Racing Experience.

    If you log in your should have DTM 2014 unlocked for free. There is no separate update apart from the big patch which you automatically get via Steam.
  4. So I basically downloaded 5GB of stuff I can't use?

    Nope - the updated tracks were included which work in R3E and DTM. :rolleyes:

  6. Ah, that's neat :D
  7. What are the costs involved for R3E? I have a very slow internet connection, and 8GB is a huge download just to check out the in-game prices. Can anyone fill me in?

    I see that DTM is €25, but are there more things to buy within the game? What would it cost to purchase all the content?

    I'm a sucker for having to have all the cars and tracks, even if I don't want them :mad:

    I appear to have had a small accident and now own DTM 2014 and the WTCC pack. Anyone got the M1 Procar pack and know if it's worth it?

    procar is great fun , basically its one car and loads of liveries .;;;l its still one of my favourite cars

    • Agree Agree x 3
  14. Store is accessible but how would one know how vRP relates to real currency without an account?
    Note, I am a member so my question is out of curiosity and based on this thread - not everyone wants to create an account to estimate the cost to play.

    Edit: Sorry re-read your post and realised you already are a member, but hopefully this helps others. No idea why they use vRP except to hide the real costs, or make people spend more money (as they have to purchase a minimum 500 points even if they only want to spend 299, for example).

    Also, you get discounts off other packs you buy if the content is duplicated.

    For example, I own ADAC and WTCC and EU Tracks packs, so the store (logged in) shows I will get 83% discount on DTM2014, if I was to buy it.

    you can now buy exactly what you need cost wise (still steam has an minimum you can put in wallet) but prices ingame can now be paid in vrps/most currencies

  18. Great! Can we save between sessions, now? I made the mistake of buying DTM2013 taking that feature for granted (you know, 21st century... we have even landed on a comet...). I just don't want to make the same mistake with DTM2014. Thanks!

    @Sonat Ozturk @others aswell:cool:

    Got a couple of questions.

    Will it be possible to choose from different setups in the future, and save your own different setups?

    In the garage, car setup some settings, like roll bar, suspensions etc are limited.

    Also with my triple screen setup, only the Bmw has the mirrors in my left and right screen, which is very good. Mercerdes and audi mirrors are cut in 2. Mirrors start on the side of the center screen going to left and right screen with bezel of the monitors in the way. Is there a way to correct that?

    Default settings for steering, fbb are good for me [T500 wheel]:thumbsup:
