2. The automatic centering of the bike after making any turning movement on the joystick is completely unnecessary. In fact I may consider this to be the #1 issue, and may be why the cameras feel odd in the first place, but I digress. It feels as though you may have boosted the gyro effect or added some form of stabilizing effect which completely takes proper fine control away from the player.  (I'm guessing not, but something isn't right here). It makes turning feel delayed to your input and hard to correct and judge. The in air controls may be affected by this strange auto centering force as well. I know it's stupid to compare, but the way Mx simulator handles the bike leaning is the way to aim for. You should be the one to bring the bike back up for the most part, not the game.

There's a "Direct lean" option in the input settings, this will avoid the "delay effect" and what you call the "self centering" (which is in fact not a self-centering, but just a slow response to your stick going back to middle).

The leaning will become much more twitchy (you may want to use smooth and play with linearity). After years and years of GPB, i still don't get how people can play without "direct lean" set to ON. Notice however that in GPB the vast majority of the players use Direct lean OFF (unchecked).

Yesssssss. I was waiting for this.

Not waited for too long I'd say :)

Also, do you know of any way to have an icon of some sort pop up on screen when you're sitting? I started to code one and just couldn't get it to work.

As far as I can see, MXB does not pass this info to the plugin, so I can't display it. Same goes for other inputs (like rider lean l/r and f/b, lean).

Could have probably used a air cooler and saved a little money but water looks so much better.

Except you don't look that often inside your PC, especially when playing :)

+1 for air cooling: cheaper, almost same performances (unless you overclock heavily) and much quieter.
Not to mention that if in 3yrs from now an air cooler breaks down it's no big deal, while if a water cooler leaks ...

I'm hearing a range of different answers and suggestions on which way to go about this. Can we all just get along and make 1 good way to do it? :D


Uhmm, no, we can't.

General rules: if it's for gaming only, an i7 is overshoot (except for some rare games that are CPU limited).
Do you plan to overclock ? If no you can save some money on the CPU (getting a non-K one) and maybe on the mobo (but I wouldn't).
I wouldn't go AMD for the CPU, but it's certainly doable for a gaming rig: it's just not worth IMO.

SSD: 128GB is a very minimum if you plan to spend 1000+ $. I'd go 256GB for sure.

Motherboard: avoid the "gaming" stuff, it's only marketing most of the time. Same for RAM: get 8GB (16 if you can) no frills with non-hardcore timings (timings make a very very tiny difference, especially for gaming).

Graphics card: after years of AMD (4850, 6850, 2x6850, now 7950) I can tell you my next one will be an NVidia for sure. AMD tends to have worse support for openGL, which is used by all Piboso's games (but nothing else essentially, game-wise). 760 is sweet-spot right now (MSI seems to have the best ones).

Tom's hardware has some nice recap of CPUs,  GPUs and SSDs (updated monthly or something):

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-recommendation-benchmark,3269.html

Personal advice: investing in a 120/144Hz monitor is something you'll never ever regret. And you'll never ever go back to 60Hz ones, IPS or not.

256GB is a bit much for an SSD. Rely more on the HDD and get like a 128GB SSD, thats plenty. Unless you plan on running like everything from it. Heck, I have a 24GB SSD haha

At today's prices, I'd definitely get a 256GB SSD, even if you have to get a non-top-notch one : the difference between an HDD and an SSD is huge, but the difference between an average SSD and an excellent SSD is little.

Spending 1200+ $ on a PC with no SSD is just unacceptable today.

I would throw an SSD even in a 600$ PC.

Suggestions and wishlist / Re: Wish List for MX Bikes

I'll try this. But you're still using your rear brake on a button which must lock it up right? And MX bikes I'm guessing rider lean has to be controlled by the rider or else how would you whip? That's the most important thing to me if you can't whip and scrub I doubt I'll play the game very long.

Many do this in GPB:

Throttle/Front brake: left/right front triggers
Lean: left stick left/right
Rear brake: right stick down
Clutch: right stick up
Gear up/down: shoulders buttons

All are analog (except gears) and lean is on a "dedicated" stick.
If you need manual rider movements (which 99.9% of gpb players do not use, but it may be more important in MXB) then it gets complicate.
The "logical" setup would be one stick for rider movements (forward/backward, left/right) and lean + clutch and rear brake on the other stick.

But then, you'll have to wait what MXB has in terms of controls, how good are the "auto" options etc.
