    Actually no, there will be a public demo later.

    Tech demo is a kind of bonus for those who supported Kunos in the past bought NkP. It's also a way to decrease number of people who will download that tech demo. AC is greatly anticipated and having plenty of people download tech demo and report the same bugs would be inconvenient for Kunos.

    But of course if someone wants to get hist hands on AC tech demo, he can buy NkP even now. It's everyone's personal choice - depending on how badly someone wants to get that tech demo. I will probably wait.

    I like to try the full NK Pro for 5 euro's as well. I remember once trying the demo, it probably is a bit outdated now, but I always like to play multiple sims.

    "How the heck do I drive away?", almost as the frustration in (not) taking off with a Boeiing in flight simulator 98 when i was a little kid.

    I hope Asseto Corsa will be very good, because then rFactor will become even better then it is now. Competition is good for us simmers :D

    I bought NK Pro when it was released, and sadly there was no improvement in the netcode which is horrible. If AC have the same netcode....then its a no buy for me.

    So the multiplayer experience is below-par and no AI in netkar pro.

    These are 2 of the weak-spots AC promises to improve on. Graphics are also better, content as well.
    However I'm most curious about physics, most important.

    This is Marco, talking about tech demo.
    He explained that tech demo will not be the same as actual demo and indicated that actual free demo will be released after full version.

    The tech review would be a sort of Beta! they will release it, because they need the ffb from the community!

    Never got into nkpro really but looking forward to the tech demo this week, certainly a massive amount of hype generated by the fans of nkpro...Hope it doesn't let them down lol.

    as we already know - the techpreview of AC will be released this week, and almost the whole simracingcommunity
    is on pins and needles!
    to counteract that probably unfounded hype - i would suggest the "marussia-release"!!

    :)

    nkpro net code was improved with 1.3 release..
    wiht nks2 openwheel there was a persisten problem with collision related to speed of car and net code that was old conception
    therefore phisics and ffb is at same level of rfactor 2, but nkpro was released in late 2008...
    think on it...
    @GTClub_wajdi
    please test NKpro car if u can .....
    please
    thanks

    "nkpro net code was improved with 1.3 release.."

    Yep, I will give it a run after the endurace event with my IsR league!
    Si, lo provero dopo la gara endurace di sabato prossimo!

    However, I think that we need this competition between rF2 and AC! AC will force ISI to improve more and more rF2 and viceversa!:)

    it's hard to define a hit...
    remember that software came from one man programmer...i think it is just a great result ...
    but everyone can decide by it's self

    netkar like rf2 i won't say that!
    how do you say that..just before driving an unreal fiat 500?!
    mhhh..

    i really don' t understand kunos ...

    the made netkar till the 1.3 and was still ---- incomplete ------ few cars... full of bugs...with a miserable netcode...
    then they made fva...and was unbeleveable ----- incomplete ----- such a mod of the incomplete netkar...

    now they are making this ac and people will wait for a very long time in order to receive a full release without bugs....

    ac graphics is great..no doubt !..

    but ac has not weather and dynamic weather condition...
    no real road
    no sofisticated tire model
    kunos has no experience with a.i. intelligence
    and a very bad experience with netcode

    i'd say before starting a new project kunos try to finish the old one!!

    It' s a point of view...
    For kunos nkpro is closed ...car have no bug in physics or in ffb...
    Tyre model is not sophistcated ..true.. but have a natural behaviour...(see aim telemetry)
    Few cars...but good car thats all
    Fva was a partnership with Ferrari... Complete for the project purpose ...
    But at the end of story Everyone do what They want
