Bad habits

Post by iceman1 » 21 Feb 2010, 19:49

During studying, my break periods seem to be much longer than the studying period :p

What's yours ?

Here are some of mine:
  • I'm usually late for my uni courses.
  • I'm lazy and take many breaks when studying
  • I'm lazy to post on forums :lol:
  • I'm getting quite desperate when I take a few days break from racing games
  • I'm swearing at my PC when it crashes (it happens everyday)
  • I sometimes sleep all day long if I am very tired.
  • I'm not very optimistic.

I suppose you wanted to quote the point about racing games ? I don't play Test Drive Unlimited, but I like racing games that I can play with a mouse (GTR 2 and GTR Evolution) until I get a job and buy a wheel. I can't play those online as I haven't exactly bought the game :zz: but I know they can be played with a program called Tyka or maybe with Hamachi. I've also tried rFactor but it's difficult to play it with a keyboard.

Yes, wrong line :blush:
I am bought TDU both me and my son. I have also one free wheel, but I guess that it's too expensive to post it from Finland.

Yeah, you're right it would cost more than the wheel itself :lol: Thanks for your kindness, but I'm getting a job next year so I'll buy one. However, I found that I became better by playing a lot with keyboard and later with a mouse. For example at Monza in Race07 I'm only 1.65 seconds off the best lap from my class posted at NoGripRacing in the following link http://www.nogripracing.com/hotlaps/rac ... ss=2&dif=3]

Actually it's much easier than with the keyboard, and there are enough people doing like me. Turning left-right is done with the mouse so you have perfect control over it. More annoying is with the gas and brakes, since you use the buttons of the mouse for those, and you have to adjust their sensitivity depending on the car, weather, track, etc. It only takes a few days to adjust but to get as good as you can ever be it might take a month or so. But even the transition from keyboard to wheel takes at least a week, so it's not so much difference between the 2 situations.
