    Maybe waypoints is outdated method nowadays with more storage? Is there any problem in iRacing with big replay size?

    Replays are learning tools too at least for beginners like me.

    I'm confused by this thread. rF2 replays are top notch. You can see everything physics-wise (suspension travel, chassis flex, tire deformation, etc). Especially in slo-mo.

    I'm assuming everyone has their replays on "Full" and not just "High".

    Either you are not serious or you didnt get the point.:cool:
    The way of "recording" the replays in NR2003/iRacing and all the gMotor game derivatives is two completely different worlds.
    You cannot get a simple waypoint saving system to save a "video"ish replay that is later able to display the behaviour of the car as it was when the replay was recorded.

    Just like you cannot reconstruct a holiday journey in Venice by replaying the GPS record of the waypoints you have been walking.
    Even if the GPS have 4TB of storage:D

    EDIT: Changed "to Venice" to "in Venice":rolleyes:

    Hmm, maybe you are right but final result is somehow off and looks arcadish, while on other hand iRacing and LFS look lifelike.
    Can't pinpoint what exactly looks wrong. Sometimes I have a feeling as if watching smaller RC cars.
    Maybe what Nielsen said is the reason.

    I would have gone for this thread as "are exterior cameras important", rather than replays. Because thats where the fun really starts at watching cars. I always felt fine with onboards here.
