    I haven't posted in a while, but I am having trouble myself playing other sims after the feel of AC.

    I played AC only for a few laps until now. But I have problems with feeling the car in AC. I cant really feel when I lose the car like in the GT series. I mean I cant feel it when I lose the grip. So now I turned back to GT6.

    I use a GT2 Fanatec wheel and Clubsport pedals.

    You may have not got your driver settings or your game settings right because I do.

    I had a fanatec CSR that I just sold and got a g27 instead. I will say there is a noticeable difference going from the fanatec to the G27. The fanatec was a little more finicky (actually a lot) when setting it up to feel right (to me at least) compared to Logitech.

    The fanatec felt best to me with the 706 driver as it did in most games.

    If you prefer driving in GT6 rather than in AC, it is your prerogative, all you have to do is enjoy GT6, no problem. Your wheel and pedals have nothing to do with it, AC and GT6 are different, have fun with what you feel is best for you.:)

    I agree, if he likes gt better then he should stick to that and not worry what others say. BUT, for the life of me I can't understand his choice, AC is limited at this point but a fantastic sim!

    I agree, I do not understand either, but it does not make it wrong, from our perspective it is AC, from his perspective it is GT6, at the end we all are SIM addict.
    I would only add that he is most likely to change his mind than us going back to GT6.

    It's likely not so much that you can't feel it, but that you're so used to the GT way of feeling the car that you're not picking up on what AC is telling you.

    The information is there when you're losing grip, but it doesn't feel the same as losing grip in GT. You will find however that most games are different like this. If you can learn a new game, you'll find it even easier with the next one, and eventually you'll have no problems switching between games at all.

    You can just stick with GT if you want. It's a fine game. But there's a whole world of good sims out there, not just AC, and this is a problem that you're going to continue to encounter if you try to play them.

    Thanks for your replys. As I said, I played AC only for a few laps and had no more time to go deeper. Of course this was only a short impression I had with AC after 20-30 mins of playing. I bet and I know it is a great game with better sim physics then GT.

    And when I will have more time I will play AC as well. I only hate to play on PC because of all this installing drivers for this and that, installing game, configuring, set up and this and that. I like to put the disc in and want to start a game :) that's why I am happy that project cars will come on PS4

    Who knows, I have even heard rumors that a version of AC might make it to PS4 as well, as some testing will occur at some time.

    (Just in case) If you haven't install yet the drivers I can understand why you don't like AC...

    I bought a PC, especially to play AC. I had no experience on PC games (only PS2-PS3) so I started playing without installing drivers, just because I didn't knew I have to...:O
    My first conclusion driving AC was "what the f...." this is way worse than gt5, what are they talking about?
    Against all odds I still drove 2-3 more weeks without drivers (Fanatec) because I considered that if so many people talking about how good is AC than it must be something I do wrong.

    After installing the drivers on PC, the experience took off from the first seconds, of course, and later even more - when I made a proper set up for the wheel (and in game settings).:tup:

    Funny to see Kaz on a rig that is not optimized for FOV, why would anybody want to have the screen so far away from the wheel on a rig? Kaz should definitely know better, maybe that is why he has the funny face.

    Screen placement isn't so important if all you use is bumper cam. In all the videos I have seen of him racing that was the view he was using.

    FOV is a relation between how big your the screen is and how far away you are viewing it from. The screen ratio also plays a role. If you field of view is too wide, it will be too wide no matter what camera view you are driving with. If the view from bumper is using a better ( narrower ) FOV in game than cockpit in GT it will be better, but il will not compensate for setting too far on a small screen.
    Field of view in GT is 82, you need a pretty big screen and sit very close to have a field of view of 82.

    its hard to loose all the "bad" habbits of GT because they dont work with AC,you need to get a different more delicate and far more precise way of driving,but for me you cant compare the two in GT you just drive with a heavy wheel and with AC :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    Just changed the settings on my G27 in GT6, changed the steering to simulation and cranked up the FBB from 5/20 to 9/10 and it's a lot stronger. Also turning all the aids off including ABS 0 and skid force recovery OFF, traction control 0. I think it makes a huge difference. You have to turn all that crap off. When you're braking you really have to control the steering as it's easy to lose control. The weight shifting is not the best but it's not bad, the tires do break loose. I'm looking forward to trying AC soon..is it a one time purchase at the steam store? I think it's listed at 39.99.

    When no one is around he hooks up a super pc and goes real sim racing. That's why you gt6 users haven't gotten any features lately.

    I don't blame him if that's true. He already has a lot of money so he obviously won't spend his time developing a game that will take ages to complete and is boring compared to its competitors.

    Yes, look at his real sim cockpit, the super pc should be hidden somewhere.

    Exactly, as I wrote in my post, He should know better. Apparently he does.

    You got me. I forgot he was a mediocre amateur/professional driver. That makes it even worse that gt cars handle the way they do, but that is a topic for one of the many other threads discussing that.

    All those expensive TVs and he has the poor kid sitting in a plastic dining chair using a DFGT. :(

    Speaking of PC sims, I never really could get into them. Too much focus on setups. I could drive the cars OK, but if I tried to make them any faster using setup tricks I'd usually only gain maybe a tenth or two, if that.

    Today I tested and played AC for more than 5 hours and am blown away. Last week I only tested the normal cars like BMW 1M or Fiat 500 abarth. But today I tested the open wheelers and I am in love. That was so freaking funny. The FFB is the bomb! All this years I missed real FFB in games I played (GT and Forza).

    That weak FFB in GT and Forza was so boring. In AC you finally can feel the car, the track, the weight, the bumpers, the physics and everything else through your wheel (I have an Fanatec GT2). The physics of the open wheelers are great and I enjoyed every lap. The Ferrari 312t2 is a beast and is so much fun to drive.

    Will be hard to go back to GT6. Maybe only for the Senna DLC but AC is for sure way more fun.

    I'm still finishing building my PC, still have no dedicated graphics card, and yet I am so amped for AC that I've just bought it on Steam, even though I doubt it will even run until I pick up a graphics card (next month!).

    Ahh well, at least it will be installed ready to go as soon as I install the card and drivers!
