F1 2010 homemade videos

F1 2010 homemade videos

F1 2010 being released today, we are now free to show you a few exclusive videos of Codemasters' latest racer. In the first video, we went to Belgium to show you a sunny practice lap, a cloudy qualification lap and finally an extract of the race itself. The second video is simply the replay of the second lap of the race in Spa. The last video will take you to Monaco and show you what a race can be like when being first on the starting line, and what can also happen when you get too confident.

The footage was captured with all driving aids deactivated, with tyre and gas simulation on and with the Fanatec driving wheel. The AI level was set to intermediate but there was still some interesting challenge for my early attempts.

360 because that's the version we were sent. We don't do PC.

Afraid of driving with the cockpit view, Driftwood? ;o)

I'm playing the PC version, and it doesn't look much better than this maxed out. By that I mean: xbox360 version seems on par with the PC version.

Afraid no. But I wanted to make sure I could show something interesting. I did not have much time to capture the footage. :p

Yeah, I'm playing the PC version too; pretty badly ported in my opinion. Dirt 2 looks AND runs better on my laptop.

Wow, Monaco in the rain was sublime! Great race and what an ending lol

Thank you for the videos

looks pretty good I think. If at any point soon I get a replacement wheel for my gt4 wheel that broke, I might be intriqued enough to actually getting this. nice!

Monaco video reminds me so much of playing F1 on the ps1 for hours at a time. I can't wait to get this in my own 360 and see how great it looks first hand, away from streamed footage. That rains very impressive

What's with the driving line? Is this like a mandatory feature now in supposed simulators? I don't think it's teaching anyone how to drive better, just follow a line.

Its more for learning the course than actually driving better so it is actually quite useful in terms of how hard to brake at hairpins etc. It SHOULD be a mandatory feature as it is helpful to beginners.

Of course you can always switch it off.

Braking/coming off the power way too early - not getting enough pressure/heat into his boots.

The thing with Dirt is that it uses a crap load of Bumb Mapping which can look good at times but obviously lacks detail when looked closer while it improves performances.

Codemasters has taken a different approach here. They've gone for realism and had to trade bumb mapping for a higher polygon count and more realistic look. The result is a much prettier game (on PC) at times but it seems that they didn't want to skyrocket the specs for this game so they focused on car models, realistic color pallette and tracks but the didn't put that much effort in environments and lightining.

The result is very satisfying to me, it actually looks astonishing at moments but they could've definitely improved the environments to make it a real pleasure to look at.

Surely the PC visuals are as tweakable as Grid and Dirt2, right?
I mean, under the cover.

Question for le pilote automobile: What kind of driving assists were you using (except for the obvious driving line assist)? Also, at the risk of sounding like a complete 'know-it-all' douche: I think you need to change gears a little earlier! :P

Sure! You can tweak the visuals as much as you want!

...Just not upwards... ;)

Download the videos instead of simply streaming them. The visuals really aren't that different from the PC version, which I also did see in action.
