    Just bought this. It’s excellent. Does anyone know how to turn off the mini map in the hud?

    Will they be reintroducing the Formula Classic at some point??? Was the most apealing car to me………..

    Super slow download atm.

      It’s not gone anywhere and never was.

      • sargentjack86

        Right……so why it’s not included in the list of cars on the GSC website???

        I don’t know, but it is in the 2012 game. Just switch to Formula Reiza in the main menu and pick it where you pick your car.

  • http://twitter.com/stuffbygecko gecko

    i’d like to test this, but it seems I can’t as my 30mins already expired in the original GSC demo….
    gonna buy this one anyway I guess.

    another question: is this sim modable?

    • Ricoo

      Since Alex released 4 addon tracks (Floripa, Jerez, Putnam, Vanport) so I would say yes.

      And the available content is already great. 🙂

  • Ricoo

    Downloading now. Can’t wait to try new content 🙂

    Is there going to be a real download link? This torrent stuff is sooooooo slow I’ll never get the update.

    • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

      Make sure you are using the latest uTorrent (if that’s your client).   I’m getting 490kb/s atm

      • bryan

        Thanks but its no faster..Torrents suck for me..I can d/l this as an exe in a few minutes but for some reason I can’t get torrents to come down fast..
        Thanks Reiza….I guess I won’t get the update. you guys enjoy it!!! I wish i could.

      • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

         If you are using uTorrent, make sure DHT is turn off and that the listening port is open.

      • Chris Allen

         There are now links you can download from, you don’t have to go through a torrent, this was only to get it out there but now there are links.

  • Rob Taylor

    How is the ai on this, was tempted to buy it a while ago, but guessing I probably wouldn’t get online with it quite as much as say rf. So is it recommended to play offline?

    • Richard Hessels

      The AI is really good, they overtake where ever they see a opportunity.

      No trains that stay in line for a whole race.The AI boys give each other a hard time too.Much better than i expected at first.They feel almost like human opponents, but luckily a bit cleaner (no wreckers).

      • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

         Yep, all that.     And I like the way the Camaro SS leans into the corners in the cockpit view.  Nice.

    • Matt Orr

       Probably as good as the AI in this engine will ever get. It’s passable, they still brake early and spaz out when racing side by side though, like any other game on this engine.

      • Rob Taylor

        I tried the trial and have to agree, on starts they clump together and hold there line leaving huge amounts of space which can gain you 10 positions easily when they break to easily and leave a clear space. It does seem better when spaced out but I think will wait and buy it in group buy when/if my league runs it. Graphics look super for that engine I have to say tho.

  • Gabriel Tawiah

     Downloading now 🙂 I’ve been a fan of niel’s stuff for a while.

    Is there a patch from v1.70? didn’t see one on the web-site?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Ford/100001922734704 Steve Ford

    This comes with the formula classic as well.  Not sure why they don’t post pics of that.  

    • Anonymous

      The Classic isnt ported to the GSC 2012 version.
      They maybe do it afterwards because of huge demand but it will be no different then the earlier version.

      • Anonymous

        It’s already in it, switch to formula reiza and you’ll see it above the current f1 style car.

      • Chris Allen

         Why do people that have no idea post something like this, like it is fact, when they are in fact 100% wrong?

    Does this still use the rfactor engine?

    • gt3rsr

      Yep. A classic gMotor 2.

  • Anonymous

    Imagine what these guys would do on a modern engine? the cockpits here are the best on any gmotor2 based title, let alone the physics.

    • Anonymous

      btw, anyone can confirm if the Senna game in development by Reiza will use some sort of proprieratry tech or will be gmotor2?

      • Erick Nagy

        As far as I know, that has not been defined yet.

        The new project will see Reiza going beyond, combining a brand new Game engine with a meticulous research process – passion and technical perfectionism in the best Senna style, to recreate in all its details a magic era in racing, when Ayrton wrote his history.http://www.reizastudios.com/news/en/1/new-game-with-ayrton-senna/

        thanks for the link, pretty much great to read this.

    Anyone else getting GSC.exe and the GSC Dedicated.exe reported as viruses ?   My Norton quarantined them both.  It happened on the original install too if I remember.  
    I risked that they are false positives and restored the files. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Ford/100001922734704 Steve Ford

      Unless they register this with Norton it will always happen.  Norton isn’t a gamer friendly anti virus software.  It’s actually a pain in the arse.  🙂

    • Boss Player

      Norton is the biggest joke on antivirus industry. They sell crap and they even get payed for that.

      • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

         A few years ago I would have completely agreed with you.  In 2009 it was re-written from the ground up and now it’s really good. Right up there with BitDefender and Kaspersky for home AV. 
        But this isn’t an antirivirus pissing contest and I`d rather have one giving me a false positive than not picking one up at all. 
        I’ve been in IT for 30 years and believe me I’ve tried all the major AVs so I did make my decision with a lot of previous research.

        Oh and if you must call something a joke, at least get your spelling right while you do it 🙂

    • http://twitter.com/Trux1 Trux1

      The best AV software is Microsoft Security Essentials… I’ts free and er from Microsoft!
      Norton and any other are just resource hogs and usually expensive to boot. 
      Do yourself a favour and uninstall that shit then go here.

        Glad to help. Glad you took my advice. Have a great day. 

      • http://twitter.com/Uff182 Andrea Candini

         Antiviruses are not resource hogs nor expensive to boot from years. 😉
        I’m not using Norton anymore as it really was bad 10 years ago, but it improved too. Nowadays with a SSD and a quad core (but a dual core is more than enough) you won’t even notice that you have an antivirus turned on. 🙂

    • Richard Hessels

      I had the same.. My Avira told me it contained a virus.

      • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

         Avira was what I was using when I installed GSC originally which would explain why I remembered it reporting a virus back then too.   Something in the code of the .exe’s is triggering it I`d imagine.

      • Jochen Schächtele

        If you put the GSC folder into the exclude-list, you wont get any virus-notices anymore.
        After I habe done that, everything worked fine.

    • Chris Allen

       Yep my Norton grabbed mine too, there is no virus and I submitted a false report to Norton, but they have yet to add it as safe.

  • Alejandro Gorgal

    Ahh yes, looks like I know what Im doing today 🙂

  • Matt Orr

    Ya know… I knew this was as good as Gm2 would get, but I never bothered as well, Brazilian stock cars are not something I know anything about and I’ve had enough Gm2 to last three lifetimes.

    That said, I’m a moron, slap me now, take my money, good day sir.

    man this lack of info is sub-par! I’ve purchased GSC 2011 so how am I supposed to play 2012? Do I download the full game and uninstall the 2011 and use the code provided for my GSC 2011 version into the 2012 version? Or am I supposed to buy the whole thing again? Or do I just over write the GSC 2011 folder with the 2012 version? Or am I missing something else???

    • Anonymous

      It’s said before, it’s a new install, free for all who have GSC2011, you can use the same activation.

      Check the FAQ on the official GSC forums:

        thanks guys downloading the thing now :). Rob should had added their forums link to the article.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Renato-Simioni/1556380242 Renato Simioni

        I think Rob picked up on the news when we had just “pre-released” the torrent on our facebook page. The official website http://www.game-stockcar.com.br has since been updated and has all the info one needs, whether you´re updating or just getting into GSC.

        Also make sure to check our GSC 2012 promo video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=FutyLaGx4FI

      Its a complete new game. So it gets a new folder. Just download the GSC 2012 update
      You can just keep the old install also. So you can drive the 2010 Stock Cars and if you keep that install you dont have to activate GSC 2012 anymore with a key as the game detects you have GSC 2010 already installed. For the rest go to racedepartment. Their support forum is there as mentioned a couple of times.

    How’s the online community in this game? Is it active?

      There are leagues running this game, public servers are quite at times.

    • Anonymous

      Your best bet is to head over to http://www.racedepartment.com they have supported GSC since its launch and not just set up a server or league because the game is the new and they want members off the back of the publicity.

      Still basically dead. I thought there would be more people online after the release of 2012 but there has been only a handful of people over a few servers everytime I have checked since release. Real shame.

    I decided to try this out for the first time, and unfortunately it feels exactly like RF1. I know it uses the same engine, but I was hoping for a more realistic feel in terms of physics and FFB.

    Maybe it’s my settings? IDK. But, I either get no FFB at all – the wheel just feels dead and not connected to anything. Or, I can turn the FFB up and get some responsive, but a very unrealistic feel. For instance, I can sit idle and the wheel will completely turn in one direction. Even if the FFB is too high, there’s nothing acting upon the wheel to force it to turn on its own at idle like that. Something is wrong.

    Then in turns, even at low speed, there’s no actual feel to what’s going on, the wheel just pulls extremely hard in whatever direction I’m turning. Again, turn the FFB down and it just lessens the feel till there’s nothing at all.

    To me the FFB in the original RF engine has just always felt broken to me, it doesn’t feel in any sort of connection with the physics engine at all.

    Can anyone comment on possible settings, or is this just the way it is with this engine? Also, I’m using a DFGT. thanks

    • http://twitter.com/Trux1 Trux1

      -100 ffb

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/JQ22BC4RZTPRPQDRGYVMN22R4E Stuart

       Ouch, I am sure the guys at Reiza are loving a comment that says their years of work feels just like rf1 lol. Personally, for me the physics and FFB are superb, the cars react quickly and are a handful to drive with all assists off and the FFB at full strength plus ramping it up to 150% in the windows controller makes it pretty aggressive. Your FFB is definitely set the the wrong end of the spectrum though if the wheel is behaving like that, Trux1 is spot on, change it to the other end i.e. -100 and you will see a massive difference.

      • Jay Adams

        I’m not trying to be rude, but the issue and feel I’m experiencing is the same from rf. But, it sounds like it’s my setup, which is what I thought and was hoping. So -100 ffb, this is something I need to change within a config file?

      • Mike Cimuchowski

        Whew, I’m glad you got that sorted out. It would have been a shame for a bad wheel setting to ruin this AMAZING sim for you.

    Please. Where can we find the Mini Cooper S race car ?

    Can someone knows how to activate 900° rotation for the Camaro ?

    I had it set to 900 in Logitech G27 Controller parameters, but in-game, the wheel rotation is not shown properly as there a huge lag

    For 270 ° rotation (which is default) no problem

    Thanks
