I used to play Nurburgring (in an Escort Cosworth) using one of these:

It was one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had, I bought it off a workmate for 100 quid. Unfortunately, it broke a couple of days after and I never played it since. :(

I've got it on PC too, never been able to get a game online though. We should ;)

Completed the game on the 360 a couple of weeks after getting in, Brilliant game. just like the other TOCA's, one of my favourites of all time. Currently going through the PC version, think I'm about 50%

I've updated, as far as I know, with the only patch available. Whenever I go online there never seems to be anyone else on. At all. I just presumed the online community was dead :?

Ummmmmmmm - there are always plenty playing when I go online. How strange!

There is 1.1 patch and 1.2 patch available - so worth checking to see if you did 1.2

Since playing this for the first time on my bro's 360 last week, got it on the PC and absolutely loving it. This is the way to do things, a huge step up from TOCA Race Driver type storylines. :D :D

No haven't updated yet. Can I go straight to 1.2 or do I need 1.1 first? I've got the 1.1 patch, but having problems installing it. Is there much of an advantage? I know how to sort the patch problem but just didn't know if it was worth it or not.

Also not 100% that my 'copy' will go online. :roll:

You can only see players with the same patch you have - so we could never race unless you went to 1.2.


As for your 'version' not going online - I have a few mates with similar 'versions' of the game and they have no problem going online :D :wink:

I should really be bothered to break out the wheel and play this again.

Finally remembered to update my game to 1.2 (had been on 1.1...hence why no games!), so am up for some online, er, gridding!
