BD rips by [QTS]:
Remember when Fukuda was good?
small technical difficulties on the webms.
quick cig break while i try to fix them.
get hype for British GP at Silverstone I woke up late so I have to watch the DVR recording instead of live.
aw yeah, CF thread.
Why was this allowed?
I kinda miss the more fantastical elements that were in the TV series like rally courses and things like that race and the German one.
technically it's not breaking "track limits" since Hayato usually stays in bounds but uses the air.
If the Race Director was Charlie Whiting and the FIA, they would definitely ban it. especially this year they were really strict at the A1 Ring and Silverstone. They were totally deleting people's laps for the smallest infraction.

>mfw I totally suck at it
This ain't no Gran Turismo boy.
I had to take time to do some serious training and practice.
I'm supposed to be watching Dorvack, and I had just unlocked the Big Zam boss fight Arcade route in Full Boost, but I had to keep practicing.
woah, I'm currently watching the TV series (for the first time) and really enjoying it. I'm up to episode 32. Are these the same subs only for the newest raws? Cause if that's the case I might download the whole thing again.
Also is there ANY chance that someone adds the subs for the ovas? I know they're originally chinese and quite bad, but at least I'd put up with it if that meant better raw quality. The rips that are available at bakabt are insanely bad.
it's the same subs from the old release just renamed and re-timed to fit the [QTS} BD files. so put them in the same folder as the raws and it should work. but the last two OVAs have the same wonky subs but these work with the better raws. so it's better than nothing.
the download link works for me, but I'm the one that uploaded it. if it's not working then I'll try again.
>trying to play F1 racing games after watching GPX
I did the same thing and I know exactly how you feel. I just can't take those tight turns half the time without spinning out...
made these awhile ago, never got the chance to post them. i could probably go back and make them again but whatever.
Everyone knows that if you want to make real-life mecha possible, the best talent-pool of people to choose from would be: Aeronautical engineers, NASA, and F1 engineers.
And the best talent-pool for test pilot candidates would be: fighter pilots and F1 drivers. Because they have the experience of coping with heavy G-forces and fast reaction times. And also astronauts/shuttle operators if those even exist anymore. (Because NASA keeps losing funding). That's why F1 drivers are even called 'pilots' sometimes. I've heard broadcasters do it.
It would be great if we could get all the F1 Teams, NASA, and the rest of the world's top engineers to focus on building mechs.
the German track was crazy.
it kinda sucks that they didn't go back and do another episode of it in the OVA.
I liked how the TV series tried to show the different types of racing like rally and endurance racing. but it's cool to see Hayato become a professional bad-ass over time and get an actual pit crew. So the computer guy isn't forced to change tires anymore.
There's a connection between elite MotoGP riders and F1 drivers because they both understand throttle control. They both need to know how to handle torque and avoid wheel spin. So that's why the show starts with Hayato riding motorcycles. He always had the natural instincts and ability for racing.
I think the problem of "real mech" is more in the software and pilot interface required for dynamic balance and unstable maneuver than the technology.
We already have the power source and the material for a reasonable mech smaller than 8m.
However the DARPA and many other US military contractor are still working on "AI" capable of walking outside a cleaned out flat lab.

The best F1 games are the recent Codemasters entries for PC/PS3; or F1 '97 for PSX. F1 2013 has an expansion pack with a 'Classic Mode'. So you can race old cars and tracks like Jerez and Donington Park.
The 2013 Codemasters game is fucking awesome at capturing the feel of F1. It's completely modern with the regulations: DRS and KERS, no refueling, Parc fermé, dynamic weather conditions so be prepared to drive in rain, cutting corners gets your lap time deleted and Black Flag during the race, etc. (2014 version of the game hasn't been released yet, with the new rule changes).
The game is controller friendly, you don't need a fancy wheel to play it. It's got customizable settings. So you can go full fun easy-modo with ABS and traction control, or full simulation-realism (100% race length, good if you have a wheel).
In Career mode the minimum race length you can do is 25%. So that's 25% of the actual race distance in miles. So a short track like Monaco would be 20 laps, and a longer track like Monza is about 13. And the game scales the tire wear to the race length so you still have to make pit stops. And your engineer talks to you over the radio and actually gives you useful information.
The physics of the game is good. If it's raining, you can't put on slick tires with Marussia and lap the field. In Q3 the tires you use to set your qualifying time, are the same tires you use at the start of the race. So if you do a lot of extra laps trying to get pole, you'll waste the tires and have worn tires for the start of the race.
You can even change fuel mixtures and brake bias on the fly from the cockpit just like the pros.
It has the Option and Prime tire choices for every race weekend. So being familiar with the sport helps so you know when to use the right compound. The Option is always the softer compound so more grip less durability. The Prime is the harder so less grip but more durability.
It's all the little things. The track will get faster towards the end of the session as more rubber gets put on the racing line. So you can actually feel the difference in grip between the early parts of practice and towards the end. That's why in qualifying you always see the best times come at the end. You want to be the last car on the track so you get the track in the best condition and so no one can beat your time.
Just like Randoll did in one of his first races. He waited perfectly until the very end of the session so he was the last car on track and finished his pole lap with no time left in the session. That was the textbook perfect example of how to do it. That's why it was so impressive and pissed everyone off.
I just began to watch this series, seems pretty cool
the other day I got the OST from bakabt and holy cow, it is GLORIOUS
what is the order to watch it? series and then which of the OVAS?
The soundtrack is really fucking good. the best songs are never on youtube.
go in production order.
D1 Devastator was almost a racing anime. The protag started out doing a test drive on the track before he got warped to another dimension.
It's not impossible, you just gotta keep practicing. It takes time to learn the track and the racing line. F1 2013 has hot lap videos with commentary that shows you how to take corners and learn the track.
The main thing at first is just getting the stamina and focus to concentrate so you can do consistent laps without crashing. The difficulty doesn't really come from the computer A.I.
You have to use the Practice session to tweak the set up and compare lap times. Lots of restarting and "exit without saving".
The higher learning curve makes it more rewarding when you finally get it right. You gotta keep practicing then it won't seem so hard anymore. The rookie season is always the hardest because it's the first time seeing the tracks. You gotta put some effort into it. That's what it takes to win. Then you won't have to do stock car racing. If you keep failing then the team will fire you and you'll have to go back to doing Clio Cups in GT4.
Do what I did; I've been on a racing binge for the past couple of weeks. Non-stop racing and in-between F1 training you watch some WRC, DTM, SuperGT while eating dinner to stay hype. Delay all community-college responsibilities until the very last minute.
that's why FICCY > FIA because they allow cool stuff like the lifting turn. the FIA bans everything.
The 2014 F1 season has been pretty good. I like the new regulations now. They just need to ban those dildo noses and then everything will be fine. I remember being against no-refueling when that first happened and now that rule is normal. It feels weird when I watch races that allow refueling.
This new hybrid technology is going to be the new performance standard for the future. They aren't even called engines anymore. The official term for it is "power unit". Its a V6 turbo charged engine combined with electric motors. Excess heat from the engine/turbo charger is collected and reused to charge the electric motor. And the kinetic energy from braking is also collected and stored as an electric charge. (instead of just being wasted as heat). Any kind of turbo-lag is negated by the electric motors that can apply torque/HP instantly. They use software to run different engine mappings in how the two work together. so the electric motor can "fill in" anytime there's a delay or lag in the petrol engine. They made the sport more eco-friendly without sacrificing power because the power units are so efficient now. not a drop of fuel is wasted.
Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) was used from 09-13. It only recovered energy from braking not the engine and stored it as an electric charge. It gave 80hp of boost for 6.6 seconds a lap. This new ERS in 2014(Energy Recovery System) gives 160hp of boost for 33 seconds a lap. So it's a huge difference.
24 Hour Le Mans was really good this year too. Three big manufacturers Audi, Porsche, and Toyota going against each other. The LMP1 cars use extremely similar hybrid technology as the new F1 cars. it's almost the same thing. They look good and are really fast. I also like watching the GTE and LMP2 classes.
They changed the barrier where Allan Simonsen died in his Aston Martin last year.
Now it's Mercedes that's winning everything instead of Red Bull. They clearly have the best power unit. I want to see how the other teams are going to develop their cars to try and compete. Marussia actually improved and managed to score their first points ever this year. There's usually no hope for the small teams.
I try to watch other racing series too from all over the world and stay well rounded. I like watching series with different manufacturers. WRC has Volkswagon dominating now after Loeb left. It was more interesting in the older days when they would allow the powerful 4WD models. These new compact front wheel drive cars are fast but they can't compare to some of the past models like the Lancia. Mini Cooper had a team for half a season then pulled out. Hyundai are a new team with a big budget & resources but they are getting their asses kicked by VW. and Citronen basically took all their funding out of the sport to enter the FIA WTCC Touring Car Championship. BMW made DTM more interesting by having 3 manufacturers involved. They use DRS now too. Apparently the new Super GT regulations in Japan match the monocoque for DTM cars. So if a team wanted to, someone could purchase a DTM car and with little modification legally be allowed to run it in Super GT in Japan. I'm still waiting for an english rip of this year's 24 Hour of Nurburgring.
In F1 and racing in general they have to figure out the politics to help keep more manufacturers in motorsports and how to deal with cutting costs. There's so many good young drivers that come up through GP2 but there's not enough F1 teams.
In one of the recent episodes of Top Gear Clarkson got to take the McLaren P1 around Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) in the rain. The P1 has the same hybrid technology as the new F1 regulations. Diffusers are not allowed anymore in F1 so McLaren put one on their P1 supercar instead.
and since McLaren can't have a team of engineers around you all the time to make sure that the P1 is always ideally tuned and set up for any occasion; the P1 has a smart computer system that can make adjustments to the car and react to the environment. A lot of cars come with 'Sport modes', but the P1 can adapt and make changes as you are driving it. So when you're out on track it's interpreting your driving habits and the road surface and making adjustments to the suspension, ride height etc. It's basically just like Ogre in SIN. It's computer is always thinking about going faster and what adjustments to make. Only a professional driver would be able to put any stress on that car, and even then no matter how fast you go; you can never outsmart/MAX-out the CPU system. the car can always calculate a way to go faster and make adjustments. It's up to the driver to be able to react quickly enough to execute, and match his ability with the performance of the car.
Clarkson was in Spa in the rain and didn't crash because of the McLaren computer system. It was constantly making adjustments to help keep the car on the track and make up for his lack of skill. He couldn't even keep it flat out through Eau Rouge.
and then Hammond got to take the Porsche 918 Hybrid around Yas Marina Circuit under the lights. The 918 is like a legal road version of Porsche's LMP1 919 that they ran in this year's Le Mans. It's also got the electric motors. and incorporates the racing technology. i wish webms had sound because you need to hear the exhaust.
Have we any idea when they're going to go head to head? Want to know if Clarkson will have to endure Hammond and May's mocking about the bet with his name or if he'll be able to rub it in to Hammond instead.
WHATS THE PASSWORD
The CF games are still pretty good. It has all the characters from the show and seeing the cyber system every time you boost is the best part.
They have their own plot lines and radio dramas I think and original characters. I burned a copy of Road to Infinity 4, but I haven't tried the other ones yet. I'm not even sure if 4 is the best one. Each of the later games seems to have more stuff from the OVAs. They need to make a new CF game that's really extreme like F-Zero & Wipeout. that would be awesome. The CF games were pretty popular in Japan back at that time so they sold well I think.
For PS3, the F1 2012 version is dirt cheap and it is pretty much the same game as 2013. The PS3 release of 2013 got screwed up and is digital only, no physical copy. PSN still has it at full price and it's not worth it for a year old game. If there was a physical release then at least you could buy a used copy.
I WARNED YOU ABOUT THE REALM
So did you finish watching all of it yet?
Remember when they had to save Ryohei and used Asurada as a boat?
why does 4chan hate certain sizes/dimensions for webms. Moot needs to fix that shit.
yeah, the subs would work, but that torrent is just for the TV series. get the batch that has the TV + OVAs all together. and then download it in parts or one episode at a time. It's well seeded.
The old [Ayu] release was hard-subbed, then a russian site had soft subs for the whole series but the timing was off in the second half of all the episodes. So I just popped them in Aegisub and adjusted the times. Then renamed them to go with the [QTS] rips so you can leave it in the same folder and the subs would work. I'm not a professional sub group or timer or anything like that.
Someone should put the BD rips on mega or some DDL to make things easier.
>change fuel mixtures and brake bias on the fly from the cockpit
but sometimes it's better not to change the brake bias.
holy shit just realized I had the wrong link in the post. This one is the batch that has the TV + OVAs all together. Sorry about that. It's 45 gigs.
Those corners man I would have taken out the entire grid.
best BR ever.
BRs need some love right now.

Shit, that takes me back. Used to watch F1 all the time as a kid with my dad, but haven't watched it in years. I remember reading an interview in a paper with him where it detailed how he got in to racing commentary, including a tidbit about his days as a soldier in WW2 where he came across a pile of thousands of corpses in a burnt out village which left a large impression on you. Not that that kind of thing wouldn't leave a large impression on anyone really. Always stood out in my head for some reason. He has such a great voice though.
