    PiBoSo nothing can stop these guys!
    Personally I don’t think I will need more race sim game at the moment. Good luck, I hope WRS will evolve into something good in the future.

    Tonight is the night.
    I’ve just bought the game.
    We have to support guys like this.

      Agree, it is a shame people didn’t have that attitude, back in the days when there was more sim racing developers and sim racing engines other than the ISI motor Engine, I wonder what the sim racing market would be like today if people supported company’s like:

      Cruden Racer http://www.racer.nl/ cruden.com
      And X Motor Racing http://www.xmotorracing.com/
      If these developers had the support of the wider with funds, maybe the simracing technology would be more diverse than what it is today.

        Don’t forget Live For Speed and ORC: http://onlineracingchampionship.com

        Anything as long as it is not ISI based.

        Maybe its up to developers to make a game the market wants ?

        Pibosos obviously enjoy working on general physics and the overall challenge of coding certain things , but from a pure business and work load perspective I think they/he could put together a killer mod supported rally game that could do really well in sales with the rally space also really lacking when it comes to competition I think its probably the best place for an indy team to attack and establish.

    Well I had a quick run in VR. Surprised to see Victoria (Philip island) as a default track.
    Some nice little touches that I didn’t know about.
    Multiple hand gestures, fully moving pedals and feet, wet weather with visor spray, visor tear offs, proper mirrors like LFS.
    Haven’t touched dirt yet or my free copy of the bikes game which comes with the purchase.

  • bonecrusherer

    Annnnnnnd purchased!

    pibosos other games gp bikes, mx bikes and krp have same issues like multiplayer crashes and lags. why not finish one product and then go to another one?

  • pcarsphyxexpert

    Too expensive for such a small and basic game.
