a cable'd connection will always operate more reliably than wi-fi.  you are losing packets of info due to interference and loading a web-page you wouldn't notice it.  but in a game those lost packets can cause havoc as the game tries to figure out where on the track you're supposed to be and whose right next to you and decide whether a collision should occur.

if you can't relocate the wireless gateway to plug into it, get a really long cable Smiley Wink


Lol... I hear that, before I relocated 10 feet away I used to have 100ft  cable ran to the basement......much much better than Wi-Fi.

Re: Average Age of GT5 players?

I was just goofing off in the 24 hours of Le Mans endurance race.  I had a few minutes to kill, and didn't plan on saving any of it.  So it was mostly race cars, not all of them LMP's though.  Interestingly enough, I left the downforce at the default.  I have found that this car gets really difficult to handle when you increase it very much.  I like a nice sticky, oversteery car, but even in the rain the Bull is tough to ride when the downforce is set high.

If its a video game and doesn't require a steering wheel, is it worth my time?

Hmmm, this thread has completely gone off topic.  How did it happen?  Ok ok...don't answer since it will go even more off topic.

I've been playing Gran Turismo since the first installment. After being a part of this game for all these years, Nothing feels quite like this game. Still 28 and goin strong, but still definately only 12 on the inside.
