    It also offers the same 3.5″ disk ‘upgrade’ for $5. Seems to be a thing Accolade offers more often?

    in reply to: What's wrong with the Williams engine? #274

    I just did 5 laps on Italy in the Williams and the engine was fine. Weird!

    I have trouble getting it above 10k revs in 6th gear. When it’s in 5th and approaching the red zone at about 12k, I shift up and it falls back to about 9k RPM. Then it climbs up super slowly to about 10k and then I’m at a corner where I lose speed.

    in reply to: Little CSS suggestion #273

    This is a very good suggestion.

    rnlf, if you’re working on the CSS, would you mind adding this line as well to the body section?

    “-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;”

    This makes the font less blurry on Webkit browsers on the Mac 🙂

    Haha, yeah the McLaren has the best straight-line speed, so it works well for high speed circuits such as Italy and Germany. But for more bendy circuits such as Monaco or Detroit, the Ferrari performs much better because it can maintain a higher speed around the corners.

    I’ve just set the best time for Canada in a Williams, but I don’t know if that time can’t be beaten in a McLaren. I’m not very impressed by the Williams so far 😛

    I’ll do that! I’ll use the Williams and post my best times regardless 🙂

    I’ll have to try the Williams more to say something sensible about it. I never pick it because for each track, I’m trying to guess if I need straight line speed or cornering ability. And in my mind, the Williams offers neither really 😀

    in reply to: Tim's Critique #253

    Yeah, compared to modern standards, GPC isn’t very impressive of course.

    But given all the limitations, I think it’s a surprisingly fun game! That’s what it is though, a game. Not a racing simulator.

    I don’t remember this ever happening to me. But to be honest, I almost never pick the Williams anyway 😀

    in reply to: Italy+McLaren #251

    It’s pretty realistic though. Ok, 7 seconds is a lot, but in real F1 there are huge differences on tracks like Monza, because some cars are tuned for straight line speed and others for cornering. It’s hard to achieve both when designing a racing car, because they sort of oppose each other.

    I don’t think Italy is the only track where McLaren has a clear advantage. Germany and Canada come to mind, they’re also both high-speed circuits just like Italy.

    To win the championship, you don’t have to win each race. You don’t even have to win a single race 🙂

    in reply to: Scoreboard! #230

    Ok, turns out keeping a scoreboard on a forum doesn’t really work.

    So I’ve made a thing. Lo and behold: the official DOS Game Club Grand Prix Circuit Scoreboard!

    It’s at: https://www.dosgameclub.com/grandprixcircuit.php

    I’ve posted my 2 best times for Brazil & Monaco (I have screenshots as proof). I’ll post more times as I get them. I hope you guys will too!

    This is a great suggestion! I think I’ve heard of it, but never actually played it. Can’t wait to check it out 😀

    Great suggestion! I’ve never really played these games. I remember other kids being really into them, but I never really understood the appeal. All the more reason to revisit it now!
