    When you install the update, you are still on 32 Bit by default if oyu launch it via your old link on desktop. 64 Bit you get when manually launching the exe in Steam\steamapps\common\raceroom racing experience\Game\x64

    Well, last night I finally have the chance to test the AI again with a proper input device, a WHEEL (Although, I had lots of fun with gamepad as well).

    Race Description
    Paul Ricard (1A) - GT3 - Full grid (44 cars) - AI 115% - Race 1hr with a mandatory 60sec Pit Stop.

    Small Race Recap
    Starting from the back, I went with the Audi LMS default set up 95 lts, and believe me, this is the right level to do an AI Overtake Challenge, which enormously I failed by finishing in 23rd with a gap of 50 secs from 1st place, due to the lack of speed in the straights of the Audi and some AI crashes, plus, some driver mistakes:rolleyes:.

    Ohh boy, one hour of fun, stress and sweat!

    But as expected from Raceroom, great tweaks in the AI, I never have this much fun in a single player racing game, I'll try to do a highlights video.

    Funny bit!
    When your brain locks up instead of your brakes :D

    Jesus Christ the Review section is horrible. I thought i could never find more dumb people in one place than on Youtube comment sections but boy was i mistaken. Even some of the longer written reviews are so wrong and incredibly dumb, i feel a strong urge to comment on them lol

    The Steam review section as a whole is an unmitigated disaster.

    Steam review is a disaster. It is either full of memes or full of misleading reviews that rarely gives a good summary on how's the game.

    Jan Seyffarth, former Mercedes GT3 Pilot has tested some Assetto Corsa / Project Cars2 and yesterday the Raceroom Mercedes GT3 on Nürburgring Nordschleife and was very impressed. His statement: As Assetto gets one thumb up, Raceroom will get two thumbs up.
    Unfortunately he tries Assetto and PC2 on console cause of lack of hardware and tries Raceroom on his small PC.
    He is working on a new PC setup so I think, he will try again.

    Heres the Video:


    As of his small PC Hardware I can totally see his point. I really have now super fun with Raceroom and I cannot see any distance to the other sims in a negative way. R3E now is a really good package.

    - Graphic is (with the right Nvidia Inspector settings) very good
    - Trackdesign is awesome. Never had an Racer hier with so much immersion from the track
    - Cardesign is absolutely great (Now with the full reflections on it)
    - Sound is very impressive
    - Force Feedback is good (ok, there are sims out there with better FFB... But it's a high niveau)
    - Physics are great, but lacks of some more details
    - Game runs very stable here
    - Multiplayer races are mostly fun (if you find a server with some oppenents)
    - AI Races are now great, too. Never saw an AI Race with Opponents going three wide on Kemmel straight. Try this to find on Assetto or PC.2....)

    Yeah, for me, it's an 9 of 10 Points game now. Hoping to see now some Porsche (Cup), GT4 and TCR Cars soon.

    Indeed,
    but as I understand, he has packed R3E on his PC, plugged in the wheel, start and drives first.
    He didn't made some settings to the wheel, the car or anything. He told only that he did something, that the graphics are not as bad as in his last video and matched the steering wheel.
    I think in this case it's hard to drive faster.
    But he will dive deeper into the whole thing. Probably it's a thing where S3 could interact somehow to earn some publicity. I like this idea :)

    Seyffahrt has a very relaxed approach on sim racing, and in one of the two videos I saw by him recently he said that he is relatively new to sim racing, admitting that he does not know much about it so far. I like the way he tries to keep his audience entertained. Somewhere he says in this or the AC video that he sees both games on same quality level, a statement that all in all I would share. I do not agree on all details he marks, but all in all: yes, same league.

    What do you expect from an unmoderated agony column full of frustrated, over-saturated videogame-junkies high on potato chips and Redbull ? ?

    Sometimes it's nice to get an opinion from someone fresh to the genre. They don't have ingrained preconceptions and biases toward particular titles.

    Even better if that somebody has what most of us have not: experience with the real tracks and the real cars.

    Should start in 64-bit by default if you have 64-bit system.

    He set the gfx settings to ultra low, that's why there are black dots. He has a potatoe currently.

    He basically says the Nordschleife in R3E is super realistic and even every corner has the correct characteristics which you actually feel in the car. He's very impressed overall how accurate it is (his car, shifting points are like 95% correct, the track overall, the compression in the steering and suspension in the Fuchsröhre...). He's sometimes commenting like "the car should now start to oversteer mid-corner here and oooh there it is"

    He didn't like the car and track in AC this much. Either the AC Nordschleife is too bumpy or the standard setup in AC is wrong.

    I guess he's sold on R3E atm :-D
