General Discussion / What if?
October 22, 2018, 03:32:24 PM
This question is more for PiBoSo, but please chime in if you know anything about it or have any comments.

What is the continuity plan in the event of sickness, disability, death, or any circumstance in which you are no longer able to continue to develop the platform?

Appreciate your time in advance, I know you have a tight schedule.

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to correctly set sag/preload? How are you suspension tuners doing it? :)

Thanks!

Mods / Let's Stop Thanking - Let's Start Supporting!
October 07, 2017, 07:40:41 PM
I know I'm going to get some gripe from some people on this one. But if you truly love GPB I know you will understand where I'm coming from here...

I am a relatively new user of GPB, but I've fallen deeply in love with the platform. I really would love for GPB to keep reaching new heights.  It takes time, and effort to continue its development and that means money and moders and developers can't go to the supermarket and buy some groceries with a half of a "thank you" or a "Great job".

I know we paid for the actual beta, but for the love of the platform, lets put that aside, and if you are able to, SUPPORT the people who do the work you like.

Think about it, you don't just Pay for Netflix and you get to enjoy it for the rest of your life, new content comes out, and for you to watch it, you need to continue paying for it. You just don't pay for an Xbox title now a days, you pay for 3-4 expansions/downloadable content/etc. 

Now I understand not everybody has the means to continue throwing money at a game. But do you enjoy a cup of coffee at Starbucks at least 3-4 times a month (replace with your favorite consumable), I bet we also enjoy the hours of entertainment this game affords us, that shinny new bike or track some one put out. That means HOURS upon Hours of work, and you really have to love doing this stuff when you do it for free pretty much. 

So guys, in conclusion, in one way or another, we need to continue supporting the development of this game/sim/community.

I welcome the use of this thread to generate some ideas about ways we can support and keep pushing this forward.

I have a question for all of you racers and track day riders that have truly pushed your machines to the limits. How well is tire behavior represented on GPB? My question specifically pertains to trail braking...

I'm an enthusiast track day rider in the intermediate mid pace group. Coming to GPB has made me wonder how much more do I still have to reach the limits of trail braking. It may seem ridiculous, but GBP has made me a lot more confident on my bike on trail braking. I'm still wondering how much more can I push trail braking at the track and I know that the way to find out is to actually go over the limits, and inevitably that day will come. While I'm not interested in racing (yet), I'm looking to get a little faster each day.

So my question for you guys is, how does GPB compare to real life traction on the trail braking side of things?   ;D thx!

Racing / Where to ride with other GPbikers???
September 17, 2017, 10:35:39 PM
Guys,

Any time I try to get online the servers are empty. what am I doing wrong? where do I need to go to just ride with other people? I don't want to race yet. I just want to ride around other users and polish my skills. Sort of like a track day.

Thanks,

Support / Game settings gone every time I restart
July 01, 2017, 06:49:48 PM
Guys,

I don't know what's happening but all of a sudden all my game settings (Controls, Simulation, Graphics, Rider and Riding style, etc.) are reverting to default every time I restart the game.

Any idea what could be happening? I'm running the game from a USB3 drive. Had no issues before.

Thanks!

General Discussion / Online informal play?
May 14, 2017, 01:52:43 AM
Does anyone ever get online to just lap around a circuit with other people (track day) informally?  do people go online only to race?  I am looking to just fool around a track with other people, not skilled enough to be racing yet. It's getting boring to lap around alone.  :o

Thanks!

General Discussion / Where is GP Bikes headed?
April 25, 2017, 08:50:26 PM
Hi everyone, been playing the game for over a month now and this has turned into my fix when off the track.   :)

I'm very curious to know what is Piboso's vision for this game, does he want to keep it small and community oriented or any desire in taking it to a bigger scale op? In this day and age with what's been done so far, I can totally visualize a successful crowd source funding project.   

I see so much potential with this game. It is an amazing piece as it is, quite remarkable in fact when you consider this was the work of a single individual. But I'm sure we'd all agree that what we've seen could turn out to be just the base of a great simulator. (As far as I know, the game itself was developed by Piboso, although content has been expanded by the community, please correct me if wrong) I've noticed it's been In development for years, which brings me to ask if it will ever be a finished product. 

Also, Anyone knows what is the current user base? I've tried going online and the servers always show empty.

General Discussion / Underdampened Steering
April 20, 2017, 01:18:45 AM
So I've been playing GP bikes for around a month already. Regular gamer, also a half dedicated track rider, I I'd like to think I have a good idea of how riding/racing should feel like. Understanding that GP bikes is a serious simulator and that the difficulty level and realism is elevated compared to anything else out there (love this by the way).

So on to my point: What the hell am I doing wrong? I always feel like the front end is overly wobbly, transitioning from one side to the other has to be done pussy footing around because it just feels weird, jumpy, not smooth, wants to tank slap. I'm not sure what it is but  it almost feels like the steering comes from the middle of the bike and not from the front. The front end feels reactive more so than a driving factor in making the bike steer (if that makes sense?).

In real life you cure a lot of the steering lightness and tankslapping tendencies by ways of a steering dampener, maybe it would be a good idea to introduce something similar into the game?


Also what is up with the bike sort of freezing when you accelerate hard on a straight while leaning from say left to right? you have to really let off the gas to be able to fully pick up the bike and swing it to the other side.  I can understand the gyro effect will definitely make the bike heavier to lean, but it actually is a smooth experience, not a freeze and snap? 

Having a lot of fun with the game, but it would be a lot more rewarding if this could be sorted. I'm bringing this up not to bash the game, but to understand why it does that and to help make it better.

General Discussion / New player - Hardware questions
March 22, 2017, 03:37:52 PM
Hello everyone,

Avid fan of the MotoGP and Ride series. Eager and excited to get my hands on the game and be part of the community.

My question is, how demanding is the game in terms of hardware? I currently own a 2015 macbook pro  with the following specs:

i7 2.8Ghz/16GB DDR3/AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2GB and SSD. not an ideal gaming setup, but do you think this would be enough to run it at a decent quality/frame rate?

Are any of you run it on a mac? I haven't played games in computers in more than 8 years, so I have little to gauge from. The reason for my question is that I would have to move a lot of things around to be able to install windows, so want to have a good idea before I decide to go through all the pain.

Thanks in advance! looking forward to racing with all of you!  ;D
