Regarding the playseat challenge, I have it and find it very good, if space is an issue it's definitely worth considering.

Maybe it's possible to get some half decent office chair without armrests and wheels? Something tells me I won't be comfortable for long in kitchen chair...
Pick up a bucket seat or a swanky leather front seat from a scrap yard maybe?
I got one from a WRX sti for €30. A simple wooden frame was all it needed.

I think omega gt on their website selling railings for stand, you can even connected them if you want. Then get that bucket seat thing. Could be an option.

Last pressie before Christmas, not the colour I ordered but happy with them anyway.



Watched the last half of an AMS race last night on Twitch - was just having a look on that Race Department website and noticed the link to it - F3 around Montreal. It was surpringly good fun actually, commentary and camera work.

A no brainer at that price.

Dirt Rally down to €19.99 if anyone doesn't have it already.

F1 2016 is €21.59 on cdkeys.com (€29.99 on Steam).

For anyone that buys AMS, as i mentioned on the AMS thread and incase anyone missed it, these few tips will ensure your playing AMS as intended.



Make sure you set your graphics up as suggested here

http://www.racedepartment.com/thread...4#post-2320081


Also make sure you have your new wheel setup to the devs recommended settings,not sure what they are for your wheel but for my G27 there are few changes most notably degrees of rotation down to 260 degrees.
These settings totally transform ffb.

Also check out this thread.

http://forum.reizastudios.com/thread...w-about-it.45/

Its an awesome sim with the best force feedback of them all,combined with the amazing physics you feel everything the car is doing which in a sim is pretty amazing, other sims come close but AMS has nailed it.
Loads of cars and tracks plus an infinite amount of modded content, look out for tracks from Patrick Giranthon in particular.

Finally grab the CART EXTREME mod too.

None of those links are working for me (think maybe you just copied and pasted the message text from the AMS post?).

Here's your links from the other post anyway.

Too busy or not allowed?

Not sure how much I'll get to play it Sunday but have two weeks off after today so going to get some proper time in.

Defo fire up AMS when you're able - had such a grin on my face last night playing that. Downloaded the track Megapack mod and gave Spa a whirl in the V12.

All I'm doing at the minute is lapping a few circuits trying to learn them, have to go back and read the manual to figure out what half the settings do.

Think I saw you can also download folks car setups from Racedepartment? Haven't tried that yet either.

FYI: Not sure if it's the same for all tracks you download, but the Megapack ones appear at the top of the track list under 'Add-on tracks' I think its called. Didn't see them under Time Trial mode though for some reason.

That megapack is from Patrick Giranthian,same guy who made the cart extreme mod, does so much great work with AMS.

Went back to AMS myself this morning after Assetto Corsa takign up most of my sim time, every time i do so im blown away by the physics and force feedback in AMS, so so good.

Im only using a G27 but i hear the T300 etc are superb with it.

Reiza`s physics genius Niels shows us his personal rig after countless requests.
Not state of the art stuff but that wheel would be one hell of a workout

Saw that alright and thought it was a bit ghetto for him (compared to the top notch hardware his company makes), obviously works fine though.
