DCS A-10 sim launched this same way
When you preordered your game you get beta version of the game.
Devs get very good(and bad) feedback from fanboys and when game lauched it was really good shape, i mean it's very complicated simulator.
What i see game launched this way, it worked very well on A-10.
That is good to know Jani.....we all may bicker over things on this forum but one thing is for sure, we all love R Factor and want number 2 to be the best it possibly can be. I personally will be honoured to be involved in the beta even in a small way.
That's really good to hear, thanks for sharing this
But what is good to remember too, beta quality is not what the final sim will be, there was very much problems with A-10 beta, freezing, low fps even monster pc and so on. When the game come out it was cured and wonderful sim, mostly because feedback, there is so many possibilities to different PC assebly's, that's why i like open beta idea.
I have Ati 5970 crossfire card and my first test is how it handles crossfire scaling, if not well, i'm sure it will be fixed before release

I hope there will be other guys also compiling different wheel settings into a definitive list of what works best. I have a T500-RS and so far have not been able to find one post anywhere in this regard for ANY sim. I believe I have my games working well with my wheel, but of course would like other opinions and ideas to look at. After all as the saying goes, two heads are better than one.
This is just one way in which guys can be involved with this beta testing phase.

T500 was a test wheel we used. Be sure to make sure your driver for it is up-to-date upon release as their original driver used 100% CPU eventually due to the FFB and had to receive less updates than other wheels, or it took the sim out of realtime. This is not an issue with their newer driver (which I assume they released by now).

I am definitely blessed. Not a single moment have I thought I made a wrong choice. One thing though, Leo'sFFB feels wrong with this wheel, but Realfeel is very good, even on the original RF1 default content.
My previous wheel, DFP was terrible with those same cars with realfeel. Can't explain it.
@ Tim I check the driver every time I plug the wheel in (and the firmware monthly)

John: Out of interest, do you know if they released an update to them during the Holidays?
Thrustmaster has released an update for the T500 RS.
