    Yes, only had it installed for the LMS mod but I really can't drive it anymore with the lack of grip and the crappy FFB in rF

    Omg that's a massacre! Game courts will have you :)

    I think you should have deleted LFS too! No hope at that game :(

    GTR2 & GT Legends RIP. Why mate, whyyyyy?!
    I have an awesome time with GTR2 and Suzuki Swift mod, almost like an online league. After installing AI Mod 1.0 I must say that AI in GTR2 is simply the best in all racing sims.

    GT Legends will stay because of the awesome RD Historic league. :)

    GTR2 was nice but is obsolete compared to other sims. At least that is my personal opinion :)

    Everyone goes on about the FFB in iRacing being brilliant. I personally find it the worst!

    And anyway, don't complain - rF is old :p

    Bram you got rid of a lot of good games. You even turfed Race :frown:. Just curious how space did all your games take up on your HDD?

    netKar should have stayed, best physics and FFB I've tried on the commercial market.
    LFS is being updated constantly, there was an update just recently, also they have been working on laser scans of Rockingham circuit :D When the new tyre model and the Scirocco get released, I'm predicting the community to come back to life on that game.
    As mentioned, rFactor has plugins and tweaks you can do to make the FFB feel better, you can even get it close to an LFS standard, but the real benefit is the amount of mods and club+league events available on it :)

    Loving the fact PR is staying though :D

    Stopped playing it already months ago. It served me well for four years but I really can't stand it anymore.

    Party agree. Love the FFB in GSC as well. However netkar also has the worst netcode I have ever experienced. As long as they do not improve that part I won't even consider re-installing it.

    You deleted RBR, rFactor, GPL, Race 07... And you run a simracing community.




    Is there something wrong with you?

    Not at all, but after years of playing those game they bore me to death. RACE because of the recycled content and rFactor because of the lack of grip in de Endurance mod.

    I am currently pretty happy with the games I have installed and really hope that SimBin and ISI are hurry up with their games as I would love to try something new and innovative (I know, lets keep on hoping)
