Just saw this, Twitch. Thanks for the welcome. I ended up buying the license (finally) a few days ago. After a long hiatus, I came back with the release of Beta 10 and I'm enjoying it so far. Looks like the community is getting a little stronger as well. I hope I can learn the whole track creation piece and add some value here.
I realize I'm resurrecting an old suggestion, but since I'm new I'd like to chime in. This would be a great feature. Its not the most important thing, so I wouldn't want PiBoSo to stop work on more critical elements of further development, but this should exist somewhere on the "things to do" list for future refinement.
In an hour of off and on practice with the Redshift 250, my lap times at Club have gone from 1:30s to 1:20s. Easily 10 secs per lap faster. I'll be sub 1:20 by end of today. And its not just track memory, because when I jump back to a KTM, lap times go back to 1:30s. I honestly think its the throttle response. So much more manageable and predictable. If you are new to this SIM and want to improve faster and with less frustration, I highly recommend trying the Alta bikes.
TFC, i wanted to personally thank you for the Alta bikes. Im new to this Sim and am having the usual learning curve issues. Today I downloaded the OEM bikes pack and tried the Alta 250 and MAN.... its awesome. In fact, after 3 laps at Club MX, I improved my lap times. The bike just feels to handle better stock and the throttle response is amazing with linearity set to 80% and my xbox controller. I'll send you some beer money shortly.
Thanks for the follow up Asdrael. After downloading and installing the OEM pack in this thread, it appears I have all of the bikes now. BTW, since I'm still new to this, I tried the Alta 250 and within 3 laps, improved my lap times at Club MX. This bike is awesome!
Probably a silly question, but I downloaded the beta 10 demo yesterday and after making sure it worked on my laptop, purchased a license last night. It looks like the license opened up more tracks for me, but I dont see any new bikes. Did it work correctly?
Edit... I am now downloading the zip file from Mega. I am assuming this is the necessary step to get more bikes, but I thought the OP said something about them being included in Beta 10. Fingers crossed.
Just wanted to say hello. I'll be on the forums as I get up to speed with this game, so I didn't want to be a stranger. I've only downloaded the demo so far, as I didn't know what to expect. I tried MXS prior and found it to be too difficult to have fun with and not spend 100's of hours on it. I don't have that kind of time, but arcade mx games have no appeal to me either, unless I'm just goofing around with the kids. I've got @ 5 hrs in so far and I already like this better than MXS due to the easier progression I've made so far. I can actually make it around both demo tracks without wrecking (usually). I even did my first whip over the finish line jump on the MX track, but it was uuuuugly. How I landed that thing is a miracle of game physics. I'm assuming I cant download other tracks or skins without buying the game first, and that's ok. I'm gonna spend more time figuring this out before I purchase. Anyway, just wanted to say to PiBoSo (if you read this stuff) that Ive been watching the YouTube progression of this for some time now and finally decided to download the demo. I appreciate the effort you've put into this and its looking good so far. I hope there is continued energy and focus by you and the community to make this what it is intended to be. If I stick around, I'll help out wherever I can.
This is good info. I speculated that the linearity setting had something to do with this, but hadn't really changed anything as of yet. Now I'm gonna try the 75% setting to see if it reduces my throttle and braking issues. No matter how delicate I try to be, its tough to gauge what is "enough" vs too much... until I hit the ground of course.
