    You crack me up blackwiggle, good lad.

    That sign looks sick. No pun intended.

    Yeah it's a cool sign.

    I originally asked for a banner that said.

    Blackwiggles AG Pilots Retirement Homes.
    We keep the AG in AGED CARE.

    They did a few versions, but the writing ended up being so small it seemed rather pointless if you couldn't read it, plus I sort of thought after seeing them that it might seem rather morbid, so asked for the Bar & Grill sign instead.

    Without giving out specific details, I'll think you'll all be surprised by just how many MUSIC tracks are available in PACER.

    Well that's if the same amount that are available on my development build I'm seeing in the menus is the same [80+ tracks], there is so much it has me thinking some might be released later as DLC.

    It's something you'll going to want to spend a fair bit of time going through to see what suits you, something I haven't really done thoroughly myself just because of the sheer amount of tracks available, as PACER can seem to lack atmosphere until you sort the music out.

    When I come to think about it, maybe a lot the tracks in the development build might be tracks submitted in the competition they had [years back ?] for people to have their music included in the game, seems quite a bit of it is simplistic beats and the like that to me sound similar to each other, there are a LOT of different artists listed.

    If these tracks are included in the final release is unknown, you would have thought R8 would have contacted the artists that submitted their tracks that they had made it into the game....TBH I'm sort of expecting a bit of a cull of the track list in the final build

    Yeah, seems unlikely that all those will make it to the final game.

    What about the game itself. What do you think to it?

    I'm waiting to see if the a new sever is activated for the full review codes they are sending out get activated so I can test online, as I think that's where people will be diving in ASAP and where people will be scoring the game the most.

    Campaign has been expanded, as you would expect with more tracks [The last track, which is a new one - LAIKA ] is a real speed demons course, sort of reminds me of the hidden track [once opened the whole game up] that I think it was WO3SE, which was a remake of a track that previously only appeared on the Japanese version of WO3 or XL/2097.

    I think his track might end up being played online a lot, the sheer speed of it will be the attraction, especially in the highest speed class with a maxed out craft build.

    This track will probably end up the ultimate 'Bragging Rights' track, holding the lap or TT record on, it should be fun to see what can be achieved.......actually I haven't yet tried this track in NIGHT mode, with the craft headlights on, it should give a different experience considering the atmosphere and setting of the track.

    Seems to be quite a few updates going on with the development build.
    I turned it on this morning and there was a 6.5 GB update, then shut down for a hour and there was another smaller update.

    I wanted to see what I could MAX my PC's settings at just for a laugh.
    I got it working at 3840 X 2160 with Fullscreen and all settings set at Very High, but only at around 35 FPS with my Nvidia GTX970 i7 490 32GB RAM SSD's etc, which was smooth enough, but to be honest there wasn't a great deal of action going on in the game due to the control issue below, IE no weapons use by me........I'll try dropping from Very High to lower settings to see what FPS I get, as if I remember correctly I was getting around 75 FPS at EPIC settings with FF, and FF never had Auto Detect where PACER does.

    It might be with all the constant changes in the development build that optimized settings aren't coming into play as yet, where they will in the final product, especially the console versions [guessing here if you can't tell ]

    When I emailed R8 last week about my graphics stuff up,they did say that 4K playback will be capped at 60FPS MAX.

    I don't want to goof around with the graphic settings to much after the last debacle of me screwing them up.

    My biggest problem ATM is I unable to change the default control layout to PS4 controller configuration, they won't move from Xbox configuration no matter how I try to change them, either in the game [Worked on FF] or via controller input on the STEAM options, [I'll email R8 shortly to find out what the problem might be ] which is a PITA because ATM the only controls I can seem to get to work when racing are the sticks, view change and airbrakes, which TBH is pretty much useless unless in SL or TT mode

    R8 must have at least started up the online server to test on, as before it used to say no server available, but now it searches for matchmaking etc, but I gather there are few people with the actual game to play against because it didn't find anybody [My timezone difference might have a fair bit to do with not being able to find anybody else online yet ]....I'll keep trying.

    When I did the first bigger update I was immediately show some special new content on screen that I think you will need to unlock in game to use, as I couldn't access it yet....TIP- do the Training Course first to start unlocking special skins/craft mods ETC and I suppose Trophies given that two popped up after doing the first training race.
    It's a little extra R8 have added to the game just for a laugh [No spoilers]........If this will be available on the console versions I don't know, I can't see why it wouldn't end up as a small DLC update almost immediately.

    OK, guess I'll go back to trying to figure out WTF is going on with these controller settings

    That's why I like consoles rather than PC gaming, less stuffing about with settings that can counteract each other leaving you with a WTF is going on now situation.
