Our progress so far. Cockpit assembled, needs fine tuning once the wheel arrives. Moved my projector screen to a different wall. This was definitely a two man job. My sound bar that if had for years fit perfectly on the pedal supports. Along with a 400w powered subwoofer an inch from my back. Still getting it all situated. Thanks for helping picking out what to buy for my first setup. That being said, I bought really good golf clubs and still play like **** lol. Thanks for all of yalls View attachment 1333986View attachment 1333987View attachment 1333988 View attachment 1333989
sweeeet... about the projector, as fine as it can be in terms of size, i wonder about response time and frame rate. A good response time is around 1 to 5ms. And the minimun FR is 60hz. Do you know those numbers on your projector?

It's not an expensive one. It will do 1080i/p at 60hz. I am going to use a 4k TV we have at another location eventually. I love my projector but the good ones are $$$. Knowing that VR is where I'm going, I just need to upgrade a few more things and I'm good. And it's a lot clearer and brighter when it's not 120 inches lol.

72 hours of assembly, updates and a few minor injuries. I present my setup. This combo is crazy.

Hey guys, couldn't get into the lobby tonight or any lobby. Whats weird is I can do the daily online races so I'm doing some research to try and solve my issues. I have already determined that I am on Nat 2 which is what I'm reading I should be set at but if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.

Thanks

Did you mean to say 1961 Jag for race 1?
 
Something came up and I won't be able to host on Wednesday night.

Can somebody take over.

Sorry
I’ll give it a go, I set the rooms up yesterday. Someone might need to do the chat on it that’s the only thing I’m not sure of but I’ll try doing the chat as well
 
Lately, my PS4 has struggled to boot and reboot. Dealing with this recent OS was a real problem. It also is getting worse and I have been using the hand controller to turn the console on.

If the problem gets worse, I may have to stay off-line until it gets repaired.

Fingers crossed.

Ray, in addition to the Fanatec wheel settings posted by Luiz (thanks Luiz), check out the settings video from Rory Alexander. Don’t forget, you need to set the wheel itself AND the in-game settings.
