I have updated, can't find out where to do this PSN ID stuff. Will continue to look later.

That's no fun at all if you can do that in a back of the pack car.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
i ended up finishing p2. i still have a lot of work to do in using gradual throttle input on exit. way too many spins and a constantly overheating engine.

but you're right, it'll get boring really fast once i start moving up to better cars, so i'm going to restart my career on hard difficulty.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
I got it this morning, took bleeding ages to set up and more time just to find out how to have a quick run around Silverstone.

The hand controller is rubbish, steering is impossible, it's like a switch, I will investigate sensitivity settings.

Silverstone is pretty realistic though. I'd like to try it in a road car on this simulator. The kerbs through Becketts and Maggots are odd though.

Get yourself a wheel and pedals, it takes a little bit of adjustment compared to a controller, but it's much better when you are used to it.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
yaaay, you need to investigate the sensitivity settings of your left thumb. if you don't want full lock, don't push the stick all the way to the right.

you might be better off with a wheel and pedals. i know my lap times suffer greatly when i switch to the wheel, but some people swear by it.

and when are you going to confirm my friend add, so we can have a race?

RE: ign article on f1 2010
I found I was all over the place with the wheel to start with, but after about half an hour I was faster. Being able to pick you line more precisely is really helpful and I find it easier to pick the right throttle and brake amounts with my feet. I must admit that it's harder to bat the dogs away when they decide to come and say hello mid lap though Smile

RE: ign article on f1 2010
Probably 20% movement on the controller is full lock. Slightest move is probably 50% wheel movement.

Where is this friend add? On the PS3?

I need to find out how to work this thing first.

I've just bought it for my PS3. I haven't yet installed it, I'll probably do that tomorrow.
My PSN ID is "PzKpfwVI"

Is that your banking login too?

it's in the xmb, which is the main user interface with the ps3. assuming you still have the default setting of auto-running game when the disc is inserted, you can access it by pressing the button in the middle of the controller with the playstation logo on it. then go to the far right menu, "friends," and there should be a pending message from me. select it, and confirm the add.

so far, i've been very satisfied with the race engineer's work. i think it would take an extremely good player for setup tweaks to show through the inconsistencies of the driver.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
I've just installed it and went out on the track at Spa for a quick lap in a STR, using the hand controller. Not good, but I discovered I had expert setting on. I'll try again later once I've connected up my steering wheel.
I've just preordered this, GT5 Signature Edition but there's no guarantee that I'll actually get it on Nov 5.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
I worked Silverstone for about an hour and this hand controller is impossible as the small steering movements are too high. There doesn't seem to be a way to alter the steering rate. If I got a wheel can you adjust the sensitivity and rate with that?

RE: ign article on f1 2010
I have a 160GB PS3, F1 2010 installed and I've still got about 102 GB free, but you could probably get a deal like this
PS3 Bundle
Admittedly this is a pre-order, but you can never have enough GB's free for games.

I'm going to try the game with a steering wheel now. I'll give a report on the experience in a short while.

typically, the steering wheel setup is much more complex and customizable, yes.

what's that saying about a workman and his tools?

if that's all you're going to play, i would wager that any ps3 will be plenty.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
yaaay, try tracing the left stick around the upper perimeter of its range instead of just moving left and right. i've seen several people find more subtlety in their steering using that technique.

RE: ign article on f1 2010
After a couple of minutes with the game before qualifying today, I can report that playing with a steering wheel makes the game so much better. Placing the car is more precise and the paddle shift is so much better that the manual gear change with the hand controller. Throttle control is more progressive, braking is still a bit hit and miss for me so far.

I'm off to Costco tomorrow straight after the race. See if they have a wheel.

Frank, you mean use the stick with it pushed forward?

be careful when buying a wheel. you don't want to have to do that twice.
