    With this new improved multiplayer nKPRO can become one of the best sim for online races and that for only 14.9 €!

  • F1Racer

    Im getting some probs with this version.  Sometimes on add-on tracks I cant get the cars out of the pits.  They sorta half-heartedly rev up, pop it into gear and the car goes nowhere.

    Also Ive had error messages popping up on a couple of occasions.

    Anyone know if the horrible clipping using Eyefinity etc via 3 screens has been fixed yet ( particularly in the demo single seater)  ? . Will buy if so ..

  • spacekiller

    New Vintage Replica just rocks!! :)  This game is really worth its price, infact it is really bargain. 

    Btw. No problems with new build so far.

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    I had similar problems so I just downloaded the full install again from the NKP site and installed to a new folder. Havent had any issues after copying the addon tracks over to the new folder.

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    Vintage is awesome although I do wish the gear ratios were adjustable, they’re unneccesarily long.
    Still, the handling is sweet and it sounds the biz too so I’m knit-picking.
