  • Shoutout to simulation racing unthusiasts - SimRaceway

    Hey guys! I've been playing SimRaceway for probably over around 2-3 weeks now, and its great fun, with one problem- the community is pretty empty in aussie time (around midday is 40people :\)
    So this is a shoutout to give it a go!

    1-SimRaceway is pretty easy to run, i was playing simraceway WITHOUT a graphics card for a good amount of time without much trouble at all, its very easy to run. so "propper rig" isnt that hard to have :P
    2-For controllers, its a pretty flexible game, you can use mouse steering or keyboard steering, with keyboard throttle,brake clutch ect, OR you can plug in a xbox controller (for you forza people), for ps3 controllers you need motioninjoy drivers
    3-Its great if you have a wheel, i recently got a g27 and im absolutely hooked on it! make sure to follow the setup guide for you wheel, eg logitech wheel setup guide
    4-Part of the controller set up, is simraceway developed their own ffb system that elimates the deadzone found on logitech ffb wheels, and gives a great feel for the wheel.
    5-Yes, its free to play, and yes you can purchase cars with real money, but that doesnt mean that you HAVE TO buy the cars with real money, you earn credits from doing races, and you can buy cars with these credits. on average i receive 20 or so credits a race (around 5-10mins) and cars can be purchased from as low as 60 credits (go cart) to 200 credit mr2, to 400 credit supra, to 800 credit audi.
    6-Give it a go! sign up on their website - its pretty easy (if you have trouble with your birthday, just play around with it until it works) download the client, and get racing!

    Playlist of videos i've uploaded from simraceway - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...cjKlbMMHR7D3c3
    the newer videos have better volume management, and im much better driver in new ones :P

    I have also created a team for australian racers, if you're aussie and in simraceway, please do join the straya crew!

    Always loved a good racing game, been looking for one that's online multiplayer as well. Thankfully already have a race wheel connected so I'll give it a whirl shortly.

              I prefer iracing I've been playing for a few months, using a g27 it's amazing to play a real sim and not fames like granturismo or forza, (while they are great racing games not as sim as I like)

                simraceway uses the same ihi engine i believe. the cars are tested by professional drivers to be as close to reality as possible. they test it on track, then ingame, tweak and go again, until its perfect.
                they get the lap times withing about .2 of a second usually.
