  1. Sim racing on triple screen setup: why did I wait so long?

      Home built, i7-4790K quad core @4Ghz (liquid cooled), 16 GB RAM, EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, 3 Dell 27in. gaming monitors.  

       

      I've had to do some tweaking with the graphics, since I'm pushing 3 monitors, but it is amazing.  I'll try to get pictures later.

      Been watching a bit of Jimmy Broadbent recently and have been toying with the idea but not sure I have the space. Even bought Assetto Corsa when it was on offer on Steam. But the force feedback on my Thrustmaster TMX isn't great with AC - works brilliantly with Forza 6 on the Xbone but something's not right with the setup on AC.

      Currently I have a stool with some books leveling the left monitor out, I'll end up moving my rig another desk I have.  I've read that Assetto Corsa has great ffb, but it took a while for me to get it to feel right on my G27.   

  2. I'm partial to ASUS or Gigabyte motherboards, Nvidia video, and Corsair cooling. Back in the mid-late 90's when I worked in tech before getting into teaching technology, I preferred Rendition video cards and Aureal A3D sound, since many of the Papyrus racing sims utilized them. I wish someone would find out a way to make a Rendition Verite wrapper, then I can play SODA Off Road in it's best state!
  3. Finally got time to get my old PS2 Logitech GT Force Pro set up with DriveHub, so I've been tinkering with Project CARS, Forza 5 and Forza Horizon 3. I'm thinking about getting Project CARS 2 or Dirt Rally 2.0 or NASCAR Heat 3, since I loved Dirt 2 Daytona and the addition of dirt track racing.
  4. YES! Rick Barnes is staying at Tennessee!

      Good decision.

  5. Only in Tennessee can a coach win Coach of the Year and leave the same day.

  6. Happy Retiremtnt from the announcers' booth to Darrell Waltrip. Was my favorite NASCAR driver growing up.

  7. It's hard being a Tennessee Vol fan sometimes.

      Slimey Pearl sets us back 10 years, then takes Auburn to the Final Four.

      I'd be happy to be rid of Pearl regardless of what Auburn does. Barnes seems like a much better choice.

      I love Rick Barnes. He brought the program back after Pearl, Cuonzo, and Tyndall wrecked it. We got lucky that he fell in our lap when he did.

  8. FIRE HOLLY WARLICK!!!

  9. Rendition Verite 2. Almost every sim racer had one, as most of the Papyrus sims exclusively supported it for 3d graphics. I knew after firing up classics like NASCAR Racing 2 and SODA Off Road that PC gaming would never be the same! Aureal 3D sound. Like the Rendition, Papyrus sims also supported A3D. With a 5:1 speaker system, being able to hear a car on your quarter panel was amazing!
  10. Yep, North American Philips, later Philips Consumer Electronics. Their former headquarters were just outside of Knoxville, off I-40 exit 396 in Strawberry Plains. The old sign still overlooking I-40 East still shows the labelscar from those days.
  11. Finally found an old enough CD-R drive to burn this to. Wow! Beautiful game! and fun too! Great job!
  12. I have a good, working Solaris, and in better condition! the one I swapped was dead, wouldn't work and was in rough shape. The DKJr. cart had also seen better days. Believe me, I would have NEVER swapped a good Solaris. Solaris is my favorite 2600 game! And yes, I do like DKJr. from time to time.
  13. I had a Donkey Kong Junior (red label) with a broken tab, making it near impossible to insert into my composite modified six switcher. I had a Solaris that didn't work, cleaning and other measures couldn't bring it back to life. So I swapped the Solaris board with the DKJr. First time I every took a cart apart, which was hard for me to believe considering the way I like to tinker. Good job rescuing your games, Gorfcadet!
  14. Awesome! Sadly, my Star Wars Arcade cart doesn't work, tried cleaning and all
