Re: WWW - Videos

If you don't mind that the nature of this is promotional (I guess a certain drinks company was involved), and you'd find the contrast of having a modern race car let loose on an ancient track interesting, you might want to take a look at this.

Re: F1 season 2012

Very interesting to get at least some glimpses of how the car's internal components are distributed. One thing that still intrigues me is how much of an effect the height of the monocoque has on the way the driver is positioned, with that odd, upwards-reaching positioning of the legs. It always look...

Re: Missing topic: What are you listening right now?

For someone who likes the bleak and heavy music, it would be almost out of character, but right now it's Anathema with 'Lightning Song'.

Re: F1 season 2012

So... the first Williams car winning a Grand Prix since 2004, congratulations! Interesting to see how well Maldonado coped under the pressure from Alonso. Compare that to his team-mate who dropped out of qualifying and got rear-ended out of the race in the early part of the race and it seems to have...

Re: A new track ?

Another factor is also that we have more detailed tracks than when the game came out. Especially the modern GP circuits with pit buildings and main grandstands of titanic proportions. If all else fails, one way to deal with it could be to use VGA resolution - less pixels to draw, higher framerate. G...

Re: F1 season 2012

It's not much of a coincidence that my attention on the last race was a bit lean. But hey, greener pastures await, right now, the teams are enjoying spring in Tuscany and like the trees, new bits and pieces are sprouting from the cars... a lot of the midfield teams adopting the Sauber/McLaren-style ...

Re: F1 season 2012

I'm pleased that Sauber and Williams are doing relatively well so far this season, because I think it's important to have these kinds of "classic" racing teams around, who can operate independently from a manufacturer. Given that they most likely don't remotely have the amounts of money at their han...

Re: F1 season 2012

Awesome to have a Sauber driver on the podium once again; if you look past the BMW ownership period, the last time they achieved that should have been Frentzen's final GP podium visit at Indianapolis in 2003. It's interesting to see how much getting all the tyre compounds to work on your car and cho...

Re: F1 season 2012

Yeah, as usual, no big news for a couple of days, while basically everyone involved in the sport has to travel halfway around the world... I thought this was a fine first race weekend, though. I was impressed by the pace of some of the mid-field cars. And it's good to see that the "It's an unusual t...

Re: F1 season 2012

Well, at least there are interviews out there now that suggest the teams are realising this is a compromise that pleases no one, and that the argument of teams that might want to reuse their 2011 monocoque at the "old" height with a new nose lowered because of the crash safety concerns, won't be a h...

Re: Not enough memory when using GP2Lap and GP2Video

I'm sorry you're still having problems. Finding the "right" amount of cycles for a given game involves some tinkering and, frankly, guesswork, as it depends on how fast your hardware is, so unfortunately, no one can just give you a reference number that will work for you. The "divide by zero" error ...

Re: Not enough memory when using GP2Lap and GP2Video

This is actually an old piece of fun with MS-DOS era programs. To give you a brief background, DOS divided the system's memory into a "conventional memory", which went up to 640 KB, and an "extended memory", which could hold 16 MB or much, much more. If nothing else is specified, .exe files are load...

Re: Mid.exe missing from GP2Wet

According to the readme file for GP2Wet32, there shouldn't be a separate .exe file for mid. In fact, it states explicitly that you should select wet.exe for the humid scenario, as well: the configuration dialog ------------------------ first time you run gp2wet32 it requests to you to configure some...

Re: F1 season 2012

Good to see there are still design alternatives to these bulge-step-platypus-whatever designs. I thought Peter Windsor and Craig "scarbsf1" Scarborough did a nice analysis of what they could see of the car yesterday, on Windsor's Flying Lap webcast show. One of the details on the McLaren that I find...

Re: F1 season 2012

These showcars where parts are from differently old cars are an entire nerd discipline by themselves. :)
