    God, came back here after a very long absence to see if there's any news about the Pacer release, and was very sad to read about your condition Blackwiggle. I remember you very well from back in the Wipeout World Cup back in 2009. Never realised you were older than me, I'm 54 now & thought that I was pushing it a bit for a Wipeout pilot!
    Anyway, just logged in to wish you all the best. Whatever else happens you'll always be a Wipeout legend! legend of Wipeout, that's for sure!

    Cheers guys. just had my second radiotheraphy session today, which are painless and easy to do, as you just basically lie there till it's done.
    Getting around though has become a real PITA, which I wasn't expecting to happen so quick, hopefully improve over the weekend as I don't need to leave the house.

    I got a email from R8 asking about me which was nice.
    They offered to put a banner in the game for me, which is pretty cool of them.....even though I have no idea what to choose......some suggestions would help.

    Also was told it's Sony holding things up again, mainly due to slackness on their part, R8 are hoping for good news next week, and said release will be before Xmas 2020

    They are also going to be sending out reviewers keys quickly, they have 5 days to do that before a embargo comes into play, which is usually two days before the release if I read the info correctly.

    It's nice to see all the heartfelt comments from the wipeout community, still one of the best ones!

    Cheers guys, thank for the heartfelt good wishes, they are much appreciated.

    Progress report is that I've finished Radiotherapy, which wasn't so bad at first, but after the last three sessions did leave me feeling like crap for a few days, no energy basically and feeling mentally scattered, which TBH I think was caused just as much by having to go to and returning from getting the treatment, as the treatment itself [the Radiotherapy machine where I first visited broke down on 3 of the 5 days I was booked in for treatment, so I had to visit a different clinic for the rest of it, typical ]

    As for the still to be endured Chemo therapy.
    Well the initial plan of attack was to be treated with both a heavy and a light dose of two different Chemo drugs, which I was warned would really knock me about, but since then a new trial for some hopefully wonder treatment has become available, which I'm waiting to find out if I've made the cut to be apart of.[ Sequential 177 LU-PSMA617 and Docetaxel versus Docetaxel in Metastatic Hormone - Naive Prostate Cancer, is the trial name]
    Getting on this trial will mean I won't be getting the Heavy chemo drugs, which is great news.
    Apparently it's a new treatment for those with advanced cancer that they give two treatments of before light chemo begins, it helps really target the effected areas apparently.....my sister said she saw it on a news report the other night, it's that new.
    So here is hoping.

    R8 sent me a screen grab of the banner they are going to put in the game for me, they didn't say where it was going to be placed, so the hunt will be on.

    Also I might as well tell you R8 did send me a code for the full game, and I have had a brief 30 minutes looking through the menus, and a very brief play of it......before I stuffed up and tried changing the settings to get it to playing in 4K....bad move when you are not feeling the best and haven't got your wits about you enough to sort it out again.

    I'm feeling well enough to tackle the resolution problem today, so hopefully I'll be able get to get more into it.

    I've promised R8 I wouldn't revel anything about the final build, which is fair enough, so don't expect anything, especially since my stuff up I have barely had a chance to play it as yet myself, you'll all be playing it soon enough anyway.

    Also I got a pleasant surprise, a good friend suddenly appeared at my place with a Vaporizer and some home made medicinal oil of a certain type the other day.
    I tried it for the first time last night.
    OMG ! One puff and I was Zonked out of my brains for hours, I haven't 'Smoked' for nearly a decade, sure was a much more pleasurable improvement over the Endone tablets....think I'll definitely be getting more of this stuff, although with the supply given, and the small amount needed, I figure I've already got a months worth, Christ it's STRONG, but not in a nodding off or getting overly high way, a good balance, reminds me of the Thai buddha sticks you used to be able to get in Aus in the 80's

    Not sure what it will do for my lap times though, maybe OK for ZONE MODE on Omega
