    Glad to hear you enjoy some of the older titles. There's also some really good open-wheel racing going on in rFactor
    Please see the FAQ section for solutions to common issues

    So glad you started this post. Years ago I played F1C99-02. I loved everything about it except I could never get the steering to be precise and tight. The steering always felt mushy like an arcade game. I know this problem was me not finding the right settings combination. Since I could create precise steering with other sims, I uninstalled F1C 99-02.

    Last week I installed it again after many years just for fun and to try it with my Logi Driving Force Pro Wheel.
    Again the steering was 'mushy'. Like I said I loved this sim for many reasons (especially all the great mods) but precise steering is always the #1 most important thing in any sim for me.

    Driver N1, can you possibly give me whatever in game wheel settings and also any other wheel/steering settings that would give me good precise steering?

    Just the possibility that I might be able to still enjoy this sim after all these years is
    great.

    Thanks very much,
    Velo

    you are right. Of course, rfactor has great open-wheels mods, but rfactor is very good only for online-racing. But I like to play offline with AI, and it's unplayable and awful F1-mods racing against AI in rfactor. AI in rfactor is terrible, especially you can see this stupidity and blinding AI in high-speed modern formulas and cars it's really sad. I don't know and don't understand why you couldn't make rfactor's AI like f1challenge's AI, because f1challenge's AI is really very good! They are intelligent and not blind, so it's why I like to race f1challenge very much.
    And I hope that you are going to do AI in rfactor2 as good as it's in f1challenge

    I have my disc and this thread got me to install, but I have a couple questions:

    1) Since EA doesn't host the site anymore, was there a patch for the game? Where can I download that patch if there is one? I can't find ANY information on this.
    2) Is there a way to manually set/add more screen resolutions? I'd like to run 1920x1080, or even stretch it out for 5760x1080 to see if that works at all.

    Thanks!

    F1C is like RBR it is simple to stretch in widescreen but looks terrible compared to CRT.
    F1-2001 was 2048 resolution and was awesome on 21"
    Then F1-2002 dropped to 1600x1200 ( fail)

    When I moved to widescreen I dropped all these titles for compability.

    If you want a old title runs excellent in 1920 and W7 try Grand Prix Legends.


    edit:
    BTW F1 Challenge 99-02 has no patches.
    There is a NOCD

    Hmmm. I will get my disk out and install / drive it sometime today. I haven't done anything with it since installing rFactor shortly after its release.

    DurgeDriven, Thanks for the added edit.

    If you not too concerned how it looks stretched for sure give it a go.

    For mine it looked best in a window I forget what I used on 1920 ...probably 1280x960
    But it had low frame rate compared to XP and early video card
    and some bugs then even with forced AA/AF it just did not look
    as it used to.
