You do not need any more RAM for sure. The bottle neck has to be the video card and the HDD will only slow the game loading not the FPS once you're playing.
Maybe get something as far up this list as your budget allows -

For example this will be an distinct improvement on your 460

Hopefully your PSU is man enough...

The lag you see is the game physics as Max said, it feels absolutely fine while playing. I think the lag looks worse because you can see exactly were i'm steering while playing unlike with say an Xbox 360 controller. I have direct lean on but have not tried DS yet, but with only steer and no lean I don't think i'll like it. The controller is working perfectly when tested in the mxb menu or windows and btw i'm using hall effect sensors all round, no gearing used although you could if needed, they're very easy to calibrate and hopefully will not wear out eva  :) I did'nt try to get the sensitivity the same on each axis as there doesn't seem to be the need, 200+ points seems fine and the steering has the most at about 1000.

Improve and upgrade as you find out what doesn't last  :)

Just had another look at your video and thought you were using DST as you turn the bars opposite to direction, but looking closer you're holding the lean, does that feel intuitive? It looks like you're having no problem getting around the track but i've not considered this configuration while looking at cannibalising my G25 wheel to do something similar to what you have. How does the FFB feel?

Well it's not finished, but it's in use and so much damn fun that further improvements will be tricky lol




A video of my mate riding around Assen, sorry about the crap footage.

Managed to tear myself away for a little while and add some basic buttons.

I re-loaded win7 with the recovery disk included in the package when I bought the pc

You will have Acer stuff running then. I would try the msconfig tool to get the cleanest boot you can to test GPB with, it very easy to do and undo. In the msconfig tool (hit the start button and type "msconfig") click the "startup" tab and hit "disable all", then on the "services" tab check "Hide all Microsoft services" and then "disable all", then OK and reboot. If it makes no difference just reverse the above to get back to as you were.
If that still gives no joy I'd also be trying a full scan disk - in an elevated command prompt type "chkdsk c: /r" and answer yes to "do you want this to run after a reboot as the drive is locked" question, this will take some time to complete. It's possible your GPB 6c install is using different parts of the disk than earlier versions.
Have you tried any other Open GL based games?
You're running an i5 chip, have you loaded the latest chipset drivers?
Is your DirectX fully updated? I'm not sure but this might still be used for controller input?
Have you tested your memory?

OK ta, I will test centering with bungees when it's up and running, which should be this weekend hopefully.

So when will we see the rig in your videos in the shops then DD?  :)

Most impressive to hear that you could DD.

So how's your rig holding up davidboda?

I feel for you ghostchild these problems are soul destroying  :-\ the only good point is that your crashes are consistent which can actually make fault finding easier.
When you re-loaded windows, was it from an MS disk or do you use a manufacturers disk/recovery partition with bloatware to load it? Have you tried msconfig to disable all unnecessary start-up items and services? I would also disable your AV but only test offline before re-enabling it.
As the problem exists before and after an OS reload it points to either a hardware problem or the same software interfering which you've now re-loaded during the restore.
Also do you have any problems showing in your device manager or does the event log show any other issues along side the core.exe crashes?

Would be great to see a rig that can do this to you when you do a virtual high-side, within a padded room of course lol

looking at that.. its screaming out "back ache" lol

Fair comment BOB, I had originally gone for an exact dimension match of my GSXR but then realized it would be like riding in slow traffic all the time!  :-\ So I've gone for more of a Bandit type of riding position. Also those dimensions are no good for using this rig in front of your average desk and monitor setup so I've shrunk it's height all round and made the steering adjustable so you could use it on your knees and also standing upright. With that and the seat to handle bar adjustment it should allow anyone of any size to set it up as they wish.

@DD - Did you find the steering center spring was necessary? I was thinking of maybe just putting on an adjustable steering damper for some resistance.

My mate has finished the steering base, just got to make and fit the control mechanics then wire it up. It's a blatant copy of DDs rig and I thank him for saving me a load of time working out how best to mount the handle bars to the pivot.

The seat section has been thoroughly tested and has stood up well. Just got to work out what might be best to use for foam, rubber or other pliable stuff to give the rear brake a hydraulic brake feel, I'll be using the same thing for the front brake too.

A few questions I have is ---
Can I play this game multiplier but have two separate displays ( run it off one computer and have two separate screens ?
CAn I play a local area network game?

I've not seen an in-game option for multi screens myself, bring on the oculus  :)
GPB works fine on a LAN, mixed with online is ok too. Need a license for each LAN PC mind.

Also good luck if you go for the Manx TT arcade build, would be sweet and very do-able although you may need to swap out the sensors if they're not compatible. If sensors are needed consider hall effect ones as they're non contact and wont wear out like pots.

With some old parts from my SRAD 750 I've made this and it seems to work pretty well after some tweaking. Got a mate sorting me some bearings and a mount for the steering assembly but for now I use this with my MS Sidewinder 2 joystick. I just need to make the pegs a bit more comfy for feet in socks.
