    Which OSes are each machine running, and what hardware are they running on? I'm on Windows 7 64-bit, i5 2500K (stock clock), a GTX 680 (factory overclock), 8GB RAM and on a Z68 motherboard. Running the game off the D drive, too.

    Has anyone else got this running on an Nvidia graphics card?

    Got it working just now, I have a triple monitor setup which was giving it problems. I followed the following instructions and now it runs perfectly:

    The game runs smoothly for me, but I really can't tell that much about the game from it. The assists feel like they're completely masking the physics so I can't really tell what's physics and what's an assist. I did only do a single lap, though. I also didn't hear ANY tyre squeal which felt really odd but as I say I didn't really give myself a chance to really get a feel for it.

    I am a little late to the party but...

    Thank you neema for mentioning that bezel correction fix. That was driving me crazy...

    Updated Fanatec driver 140 FW 150b; set a bunch of personal preference parameters in the RR ffb menu; and wow.

    I love this game's ffb and the all the options they gave you. Win, win. Of course it could be better, but over all I am impressed.

    Take note every other developer... This is how you support ffb.

    The driving line that is based off of your fastest lap... genius. I love it. Don't know if that has made it into another title before... but man is that information helpful.

    Hard to analyze the physics because it is set on amateur handling if I am not mistaken? At the very least there is some ABS and traction control going on there.

    Looking forward to release. Too many good racing games coming out...

    Looks and sounds good but someone is losing access to the beta in 3...2....

    I guess I didn't get accepted, have to wait for the release I guess.

    So what do we have there? I'm sure other forums already have it worked out but I'll have a go.

    Orange car looks like a Ginetta G50/5.
    Bottom right is an Ascari A10.
    Ferris Wheel is surely Suzuka.
    CTS-V on the right under the ?.
    Blue headlight is one of those Grand-AM cars, don't know the name.

    Track looks like the Ascari resort track that was featured in an episode of Top Gear.

    I think I see a Gumpert Apollo and the R8 LMS in there, but I'd have to have a proper look using something other than my phone...

    And so am I, but I haven't applied for one so I can't complain.

    Heh that Silverstone picture is clever, I thought that was an angular part of a car body.

    So psyched for the G55 GT3 and B6 GT3. Gotta love the underdogs!

    Hope they include the R8 LMS Ultra 2012 and/or R8 LMS Ultra 2013 updates as the original R8 LMS is old and irrelevant. But I am glad that the Z4 GT3 is 2012 spec, FM4 & SRW are stuck in time with the 2010 spec cars.

    Guess I need to re-install this. I have had access to the beta for while... but never re-installed it after I secure erased my drives several weeks ago.

    Maybe I can actually use my Fanatec now... I won't keep my hopes up though.

    Quite surprised I just got accepted onto the beta today, going to give it a try later. Can't post anything about it of course though.

    Please be like Simraceway, so I can enjoy it without spending a single cent.

    Same here! Just got the e-mail! Gotta read up on the agreement terms to see what can and can't be publicly talked about.

    Just remembered about this thread so I've signed up for the beta. Here's hoping they want people with weird monitor configurations (triple 1680x1050 monitors is unusual, right?)!

    I've been accepted for the Beta as well! I got the e-mail this morning.

    I haven't done anything about it yet though.

    I'm looking forward to it though.

    New trailer info and pricing details for content:
    http://insider.simbin.com/r3e-new-video-and-pricing-details/

    Very reasonable prices, bit of a bummer that the Get Real package is extra (free version comes with what are described as simple driving physics, basically aids. Open beta releases next week with 5 cars and 2 tracks with 6 layouts. RaceRoom Raceway and the hill climb are the tracks.

    Looking forward to that next week now then.

    I've been playing for quite a while now and it's pretty awesome. The problem is that I dont agree for this kind of game (I mean the one where you dont buy anything but have to spend money and money again each time you want something new). I would rather pay 100-150 usd and be sure to have all content the game will offer.

    I don't mind microtransactions becuse it keeps the game alive for me.

    What i'm not a fan of is this "get real" package being one of those things you can buy optionally.

    I'm really not sure about it, it's always going to cost more and be less value for money than a full retail package. People and Simbin will say the advantage is that you only pay for what you want but generally speaking most sim fans are going to be interested in a lot of the content, if not all of it.

    Average of €2.75 per car means just 50 cars will cost approximately 137.50 Euros.

    Even just 10 tracks at an average of €4.50 is another €45, so that's around €183 for just 50 cars and 10 tracks. It doesn't scream value for money, does it?

    I'm enjoying the beta while everything is free but I can't see me getting on board with this, the same I haven't with SimRaceWay.

    Same here, I only have interest for 1 pay for content sim and that's iRacing only because of what they offer which is still unique on the market and looks like it'll be that way for some years to come!
