I came by this SIM racing project from an Italian based dev team, KUNOSSimulazione. Looks very cool IMO.

Looks real nice but I think it will find it hard to compete with Project cars.

like it says on its web site it is more of a company that dose the background work on driving games, and has decided to dip its toe in the water and see if it can go it alone.

Looks alright.

Would pick it up if I had a decent wheel. Anyways, here is some gameplay.

You can try it out with the Lotus Elise on the Italian Magione Track. You will need a netKar PRO activation code to make it work.

This game should be released soon®

I think i'll grab it. Has the looks and realistic physics. Most real driver "sims" have outdated graphics. I like some eye candy as well as good driving.

Beta is still available if you get Netkar Pro for 4$, but i would wait for the release. Can't be far now.

EDIT: Just grabbed it anyway. Good way to support the team :mrgreen:

Just did some testing on PRO level, with stickshift and clutch and i have to say this is one of the best driving sims i have ever driven.
Even with only the Lotus Elise and one track you can feel how this car comes to live on the track.
Also the epic support for my CSW/CSP and DSD are a big factor. Shifting lights, speed on the wheel, very good FFB and the ability to place more information apps on screen than you can imagine. I only used laptimes BTW.
I managed to do 1.30 flat laps a few times in a row with 1.29.7 as an ideal time, based on my best sector times. Kept the car in stock settings.
With no ABS, TC or SC you have to work hard to keep the car on track, like it should be.

Very promising project and i will grab this one for sure once it hits the shelves. 8-)

:character-blues:

PS I will have to find an alternative way to record the gameplay as the same Function buttons are used within the game.

Edit found a way. Nvidia Shadowplay does not work on this gamedemo somehow but Afterburner did the job.

ok, I grabbed it, though the only game I'm really looking forward to is The Crew. Hope I can manage another 6000+ hours on that, like TDU2.

that was a waste of 40 bucks, Didn't play in win8.1, now I'll try in win7, but I'm somewhat skeptical.

The Crew is at least one Year away from release.
This is a total different ballgame off course. A proper driving sim with pleasant visuals made by real pros.

It should support W8.1 according to the specs.
Recommended:
OS: Windows Vista,7,8,8.1
Processor: AMD Six-Core CPU, Intel Quad-Core CPU
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 11 (AMD Radeon HD 7870, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660)
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Hard Drive: 30 GB available space
Sound Card: Integrated
I will drive some Assetto later today. I had no problems running the Technology Demo on W7, so i don't expect too many issues with the Pre-Release Version. :geek:
