RSRBR 2012 section: We dearly wish someone would figure out how to fix the still prevailing 4:3 aspect ratio of the in-screen rendering, to better fit our 16:9 monitors fullscreen though.

i have a 16x10 1680x1050 monitor.

by setting the Full Screen RBR 3D Ratio to 16x10, in the RS Center/File/Settings menu, and editing the RichardBurnsRally.ini to change the X and Y Res values i get a full screen in both the game menus and the 3D world.

wouldn't a similar adjustment using 16x9 values work also?





thanks Darren and Jens for writing this article!

Really great article, although I must admit I never heard of the Corsa sim. Project C.A.R.S had my attention ever since I saw the Lotus49B, especially since I was a huge fan of GPL.I've been running iRacing since it came out and have just started using Rfactor 2 as well. Granted I don't have a FFB wheel, just my trusty TSW2.
I really want to try C.A.R.S, although with iracing and Rfactor, i'm a bit on the fence, Also want to look more into Corsa, although I can find very little about it at the moment.
Rfactor 2 is good, but it still has a few issues, especially with the sound, graphics are good, although I have to see C.A.R.S now to see how it compares. Steering is still not quite right, theres a transition going on that just happens too fast. Feeling for iRacing is much better, but Rfactor is only in Beta, steering seems better in newer cars than the feel for the 60's machines.
So should I try C.A.R.S and Corsa, or is Corsa even out yet, or where can I find more info on it?

Thanks!

I will test your tip for RBR kramer!

And Bruce; Assetto Corsa isn't out yet so you can try out Project CARS while checking in on Corsa's web-site regularly: http://www.assettocorsa.net/?lang=en

The "Release Dates" link (to the left of "SimHQ TV") could use an update with these new games and dates.

Thank you for the review (Preview). I did not know about the GT Legends Update. Now where's that camera to take a pic of the disk so I can start downloading...
