rFactor 2 - FMB Legends revival?

Postby MonteCristo » Thu Apr 22, 2010 10:23 am

rFactor 2 is going to be coming out relatively soon.

To be honest I don't know the ins and outs of the game, and whether previous mods will be transferable, or what series/cars the vanilla version of the game will have.

But would anyone be interested in running in another FMB championship?

I don't have a computer that would be remotely able to run it, so I'm out.

You, me. That's two! We now have a championship :P.

Edit: From early screenshots, it appears that the game will launch with some sort of historic (60s era) openwheel car, so that might be good for a starting point.

I may be getting different things mixed up or just remember everything wrong but I think I heard the car in question was a Matra F1. Also, I think they intend to include the old Spa as well.

In the meantime, we could possibly race GPL on some easy track, in some easy cars..?

I'd be interested on running some GPL races. Gotta do some archeology first though, and dig out my wheel and pedals.

It would be fun to just run some short races at Monza or Miloval. Or does anyone race NR2003 online?

The released screenshots in question definitely show old Spa. I hadn't heard about the Matra; but the car is blue in the shots as well!

I'm two computers past what I had GPL on. I don't think I have any of the files anymore :(.

If I can play using keyboard, my laptop can handle it and it's in the summer then I'm in. Yes, i'll suck too.

I can still play the GPL on my laptop, but since I have no steering wheel here it would be a bit useless.

By my count that's four(?) for a possible rFactor2 series.

Oh noes. I just got bumped off the podium :cry: :lol:.

I would only if we can park at the Masta chicane each race.
People say that it was better back then, before all of the regulations and organization. But when your sliding around a corner or blasting down a straitaway....
....it hasn't changed a bit.

I might join in if I can get a new comp sometime soon. My current one can barely handle LFS.

Anybody here play LFS online?

This screenshot seems to indicate that it'll be a drivable car/series in the game: http://www.simracingworld.com/screensho ... iew/#11067

w00t :mrgreen:

And this screenshot shows a Formula Renault 3.5 car: http://www.simracingworld.com/screensho ... iew/#11707 Would also be a good car to use (high downforce = easy?). But a historic series would be most in line with FMBL's heritage, of course.

no words, but perhaps a workable link that says more than just "hotlinking forbidden" may clear things up a bit

Track announcement “Grand Prix” Promo Video

If you enjoyed the old MGM movie, Grand Prix, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this “movie style” promo video featuring rFactor 2 in work-in-progress beta testing stage.

Grand Prix racing in the 1960′s was a mixture of bravery that bordered on recklessness and, contrary to what many may say, innovative design and technology, far from primitive, which led Formula One to where it is today.

It was an era when the human eye, instead of a computer and a wind tunnel, designed a beautiful car. It was an era where spectators and drivers were only protected by bales of hay, which were often more likely to attribute to a fire than to save you in an impact.

Risks were taken and lives were lost, but the romance of the era still remains been the target of software developers, TV documentaries, and Hollywood movies. Many, including those of us at ISI, consider this space in time to be a golden age in the history of motorsport.

The first in-game/sim screenshot of rFactor 2 released to the public was of a road lined with trees, a house on the right and a truck parked in its driveway. This, barely recognizable to us as the same track now, was the first indication that ISI were trying to do something different.

We have licensed content from the modern era of motorsport for multiple types of racing, but also have licensing deals for real content from the first four decades of Formula One (some in the initial release, some to come later). We’ve done this because this is what we love and this is what we want to bring to the racing game/sim community. We want you to be challenged by our software, to be challenged rain or shine, day or night, old or new, and what better track to challenge you than the streets of Monte-Carlo?

Looks like a worthy GPL successor. That makes me happy.
