Our F1 2011 PC videos

Our F1 2011 PC videos

It is with some delay we offer videos of the PC version of F1 2011. All captured in 1920*1080 and 60 frames per second with Fraps, which explains a few slowdowns (without Fraps game is very stable). Each video is played with the G27 without any driving assist, tires and damage simulation on, in custom Grand Prix mode, AI on Professional. In the video of Monaco the Safety Car can be seen after a head to tail, causing a general pile-up. In the Budapest's practice one, the track dries over the laps.

only thing that looks off visualy are the wet/dry race "skidmarks" that are pixelated for no real techy reason to why it had to be ugly that way.

Budapest practise was absolutely fantastic! But among all the quality graphics and effects, tire prints were look like they've been copied from Minecraft textures. :D I'll watch Monaco ne.....WTF!!! 1,72 GB?!?! Is that 40 Mbps or something? uuuhhmm hell, I'm gonna download it anyway.

Still, this game looks great. It's a shame I don't have a proper wheel set yet. Do you guys have any suggestions about wheel? Not just for this game.

F1 series has a huge modding community for graphics in the games, any graphical issues in the pc release are most likely carry overs from the console versions.

Try the WMV version, it's the original one and it's 1.1GB, the MP4 one is a recompressed version made automatically from of the WMV.
Anyway in Monaco I was tired of more than two hours of video recording so I drove badly, and it brought the safety car :D

In these videos I had no mods, yesterday I downloaded some that add more detailled textures to cars, but the wet/dry skidmarks are still pixelated, don't know if it can be modded, it looks like it's a shader.

The quality is not very good in streaming though. This game has nice weather effects

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (2 Hours ago)
