    rFactor 2 - Beta v982

    Quote from Petros Mak of Mak-Corp
    (Full Interview Here)

    "Simulation wise I’d say rFactor 2 is by far the greatest simulation game the racing/sim-racing genre has ever seen. The advancement in physics ISI made were tremendous and if understood and used right by modders, vehicles in rF2 come scarily close to their real life counterparts. ISI have developed what I feel is the most accurate and best simulation physics the gaming world has seen to date."

    New Super GT content coming soon from ISI, Nissan's GT-R GT500

    rFactor 2

    "rFactor 2 is the eagerly anticipated follow up to popular simulated racing simulator, rFactor.

    Image Space Incorporated (ISI) is known for their sophisticated simulation engines used for commercial and military purposes and rFactor 2 is expected to improve on the already advanced technical features of rFactor, including modeling, aerodynamics, weather effects and physics engine.

    In addition to the technical improvements, early releases show promising improvements to the game. Early screenshots show a new design and significantly streamlined user experience. And an exciting new development is the training resources, including a "bestlap" guide to help you follow your best time.

    With a loyal, active and eager fan base, rFactor 2 is poised to become one of the most popular sim racing releases of all time.
    "

    Cheers!

    I remember posting a quote from ISI in the rFactor (1) thread where they say that it's very unlikely to be released before 2011. Should still be released in the first half of 2011 though :)

    Really looking forward to rF2, I've wasted so much spare time in rF1 :D

    rFactor has been on it's way for quite some time now. No release date, has been in development for a long time.

    Maybe I got prematurely excited, but they are accepting pre-orders now at rfactorcentral.com

    They've accepted pre-orders for GT5 for the last century, that doesn't necessarily mean it's imminent.

    I play rF alot so I'm really to the weather on 2, just as long as they hurry up and convert CSGT's WSC 1970 and the Targa Florio to it when it releases.

    I don't know if it's me but I can get used to the controls in the game. The steering just doesn't feel right when using my G27. I guess I still have to play around with it more, but that rain demo video is amazing! I hope someone can make virtual bug splatter an option!

    The latest videos on Bruce's YouTube channel (as in Bruce's Helmet Cam add-on) for rFactor 2 are amazing, especially in the rain.

    That's rFactor 1, not 2.

    Why are people not calling names to Image Space Incorporated?
    I do not see any complaints about missing features in rFactor 2 yet?
    Nobody proving that Forza 3 is better then rFactor 2?

    I hear indeed there are Q4 2010 rumors for rFactor 2, but they do not seem to hold any credibility.
    Believe I'll get GT5 before this one. :)

    I think rF2 is rumored for beginning of next year now. Somewhere I read that Gjon Camal said that they couldn't meet the end of 2010 deadline for release.

    ISI posted a track progress update on their forum:
    Source: http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/83-rFactor-2-Track-Progress?p=4030&viewfull=1#post4030

    Gotta say, I'm excited about the weather system!

    ISI have released the system requirements :)

    MINIMUM:

    CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 or 2.4 GHz AMD Athlon x2
    Memory: 2 GB
    Video Card: nVidia 8600 GT or ATI/AMD 3850
    Video Memory: 256MB
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
    DirectX: 9.0c
    Storage: 4 GB

    RECOMMENDED:

    CPU: 3.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or 3.0 GHz AMD Athlon II x2 or better
    Memory: 4 GB+
    Video Card: nVidia 250 GTS or ATI/AMD 4870 or better
    Video Memory: 512MB+
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista 64bit, Windows 7 64bit
    Storage: 4 GB+

    64-bit OS is recommended because the game will use as much system memory as it can, and on x64 you don't have the ~3.8GB addressing limit. Glad I upgraded from 4GB to 8GB the other week :D

    At least I have an idea as to what to have in my own simracing PC and hopefully not blow my budget. :)

    Hopefully rFactor 2 fixes the "bug" where if you load more cars than the track has garage stalls for it dumps them all in the same garage which makes the game lag horrribly. With 8GB RAM I could run 150+ AI, but because there's no track with enough garage spots the aforementioned "feature" means there's no point trying because the game will lag out :(

    Looks fantastic. If that trailer is (visually) representative of the final product then it shouldn't be too far off :D

    I'm sure it is based on the cameras and the comments. The full potential of rF2 won't come till after it releases and gets further patches. I can't wait!

    Can't wait to see what will be available 12 months after the game is released! Hope the Enduracers team get their hands on this!!
