Hello everyone,

 

Now the full F1 2012 game has been released, we thought we'd build on RenegadeXtreme's demo hot lap challenge and transfer it to the full game.

 

It's quite simple, every two weeks the track will be set and you have to try and set the fastest lap. To enter, please post a picture of the lap time and we'll add you onto the leaderboard.

 

 

This week:

 

Yeongam – South Korea

 

You have until Thursday the 25th to get your lap times in - you can have as many go's as you like :smileyhappy:  

 

Get those engines revving, check your KERS & DRS are working and GO GO GO !!

 

 

 

Latest Leaderboard: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqQlILJdIFfIdGFKYzE4b09YcS1qRjd5WTI3dGh5YlE

 

 

 

Oh and Congrats to DJ91rocks who won the Australia Hot Lap Challenge with a time of 1:22.795. :Winner:

LABELS:

No worthy challenge from me on this one. With a combination of the handling of my wheel completely messed up, even with the recommended tweaking from Codies. And the fact that I suck at this track. I can only manage a 1:30.239. I'm not even gonna give it the satisfaction of taking a pic :P

Congratz to the winner :Winner:

 

Woohoo! Spa! We all love Spa. But until I can find a good set-up for my wheel, or Codies get rid of the 900 degrees steering. Then im gonna be way off the times again. Unless I go oldschool. And try with a controller. Which will be weird :P

I can tell you now, I will be quicker with the DS3. Simply coz the last F1 2012 patch changed the wheel lock from 180 to 900. So im hating the game at the moment with my wheel. It's either epic understeer. Or silly oversteer. Can't find the happy medium I used to have.

Well I won the last challenge :Cool:

 

Ok, I was the only one that entered but I'll take a win anyway I can get it :P

 

I'll stick one more challenge up to see if there's anyone still interested in this.

 

Brazil is the next track.  Entries open until 8th Dec.

Oops! I forgot to post my time. Not been playing it much coz of the wheel issues. But there was a new patch yesterday. No idea what it did. So here's hoping.

 

Did you win? You don't even have the game :P Omg! Go buy it! :D

I'll have a go with this, if I can get the frikkin' wheel settings sorted

 

@Renegade Try using 50% steering saturation (Options>Driving Controls>Advanced Wheel Settings). Feels pretty similar to F1 2011 to me :)

I've actually played around with the saturation settings. And everything else. But one is still not happy. On the average track, im 2 seconds down on my best times.

 

See another issue I have, is I play quite a few different racing games using the wheel. And it will take me a few days to get used to them. I know they all handle differently. But I try to set each of them up, so that when I do move from one to another. It limits the learning curve.

 

I guess if I want to get right back into F1 game. I'm just gonna have to go at it for a few days. Without playing any other game like GT5 or DiRT3.
