    Important!

    Due to the lack of time i have with real word stuff and the lose of interest even with the registration opened again. I have to cancel the rest of the season.

    With the job lose of the gf i am working over time to get bills paid for and due not have the time any longer to hold these for awhile. I sm sorry to all who had a love for this event and dont wish it to be cancelled but i have to do what i have to.

    I am truly sorry and i hope i can start it back up again here soon.

    - Steve

    I would like to re open this. I am asking you guys what would you like to see differently to make this seem more fun and bring back the popularity.

    I will take all critisisim constructively. I want hear your guys feed back. This will include car choices, hp ranges etc.

    Please let me know what you think. If I get enough interest we can start the season back up.

    I for one would like to see this come back! I reckkon the HP margins should be changed to accomodate for the Pro Am's (little bit more power) loved watching the streams back in the day :D

    Im only doing 1 class this time. So we can have top 16. Maybe have off track votes?

    We might have teams in this, but dont do team vs team. Those days are over.

    I want interest too.

    Rather wait for GT6. It will end up like the last 3 times: after around 3 rounds the people are gone.

    Of track votes is so unfair IMO. And top16! Is harsh, going against the whole of gt5 community!

    Agreed it will be better for them and the people that tandem with them. I still got to test out which tires (or combination) will actually slow the 2010 Camaro SS, C6 Corvettes, and the Spirit R down. If my calculations are correct, it should be type C in the front and type V in the rear. Not sure though, I really hate driving those things, so i am not looking forward to testing them.

    I use those views :D It would make voting so much easier ( more eye detail).

    It is one of the many good things about the secret menu.

    Basically it makes it so you can change views like you were actually watching a replay. I haven't used it in a while. I'll go see if it still works.

    Confirmed. You need to have a USB keyboard to use it.
    Normal view with track cameras [​IMG]
    .
    Bumper view
    [​IMG]
    .
    Backwards facing Roof view
    [​IMG]
    (Note. If you use your look back button you see the normal hood view)
    .
    Rear chase camera
    [​IMG]
    (Note if you use the look back button it will look back at the front of the car)

    The keyboard can navigate through all drivers/views except look back. Actually a very easy way of using the views.

    So this might be a way to improve judging.

    Should. I had a wireless keyboard a while back, and it worked. Just try it.

    I think you should save this for GT6 when there will be plenty of interest for it.

    You seem to be prone to life's "trials and tribulations" which has forced you to cancel all but the first VDC. I get that life is more important than a video game (no one is a firmer believer in that than me) but it makes it very difficult for people to become 'passionately involved' with the comp.

    Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work it takes to put on a comp like VDC's and Formula D's. In fact, the first VDC is the only comp that I have participated in and I enjoyed it immensely.

    Hope you don't take offense to my comments. I'm not trying to piss on your parade - just trying to be your "voice of reason."

    If I can get the secret menu to work, I'd be down to livestream with the follow cam.

    Also, I think 3 judges should be in place to judge every run... Not reaching out to find judges the day of. There should be 3 people who know, Saturday they need to be up to judge and sunday they need to be up to judge. If one isn't there... then poop, you got 2 judges, or you step in. Fill in judges ruin most comps.
