    Thank you to Inside Sim Racing for helping with the launching of this promo video yesterday.

    We have now provided the video on our own Youtube channel and the original WMV, which may give you some extra detail - being 1st generation media.

    From the news post:

    Whoever chosen the music deserves a nice bonus. It just works. The whole atmosphere about the video makes me want to ignore the static crowd and various other visual imperfections.

    Much cleaner motion without those ghost-frames ain't it.
    I'm making the engine noise myself in the meantime. *vrooommm*

    This old geezer can't wait to try a 1957 Maserati or a D-type Jaguar. It doesn't get any better than no wings and narrow tires with tread on them. You will make lots of us old GPL fans very happy.

    poor poor video...I mean at 44seconds you can see the same bloke....either that or the one hiding behind the lamp post is a twin...sort it out Scott ;)



    /joke mode off. Great video chaps, love the effects and the marshalls/bloke turning his head! cant wait for the beta.

    just one Question, was this against AI or all human drivers?

    I think this is a very good move by ISI.

    Some of the most successful mods in rFactor depict classic racing. GT legends was a great title for Simbin as was GPL for Papyrus.
    Historic sims/games tend to earn themselves good reps and I'm sure most F1 fans have, at some point or another, glanced back at the history of the sport via books and video's etc.

    This is a great vid and reminds me of the film Grand Prix which I think I might just watch again soon.

    No doubt we'll get a plethora of modern day content either officially or via mods but it's thumbs up to historic racing from me.


    Edit: Just read first post... Seems vid was based on that movie lol... I should read before I post.

    I'm waiting to find out for sure on that one, because the AI is very good in rF2 so I need to check to give a truthful answer. :)

    Ghosting is gone Tim, confirmed.
    It was the reencoding of ISR. Now you can pause the video and everything's sharp. :)

    Now blow us all away with the next trailer, hehe!
    rFactor 2 - A work (of art) in progress!

    ¿Is there a long time between the start of open beta and release of the official game?
    ¿The beta will be released in 2011 and the official game in 2012?

    I saw the Facebook video and did some tweaking to colors and contrast and such. Comparison Between the Two

    Now that the actual file is released I will judge against that.

    ** Edit. Original isn't bad just too low a bitrate and WMV codec can bend over and suck my ______.

    Was a little upset that this was still going on.

    Damn you rims and tires and spoiler through the ground! Why can't you collide properly...

    I can see the heat distortion at the start of the video but didn't see any or even exhaust smoke coming from the tailpipes at any point while they were driving in the video. Those are the little touches that patches can bring about. Just make sure they are mentioned.
