A six-day private Atlas Indy500 would be nice for a change.

I fancy driving an Arrows....how about a game of F1'97?


I have the game ready to pop into the PS3.

The best was winning from the back of the grid on expert at hungaroring in the prost in a 20 lap race.

And now I'm starting a public Sevens game. :stoned: The perfect antidote to the cherry-picker-paradise F1 sets, hopefully...

maybe not - having a teammate that can login several times a day is a must (due to how qualifying works) so if you are learning then a one car team maybe an advantage. HINT: read the Series Info VERY VERY carefully

I had gotten away from playing for awhile, but I went back for a second round and now have donated/bought kool tools from them so that I could play in multiple games. I like all the older F1 car sets, although I never get in, in time to get a team from the sharp end of the grid. :rotfl: I filled up my 4 public games real quickly with car sets from F1 in 2002, 2005 and 2009, plus a endurance series with an LMP1 Pescarolo Courage Judd. When and if someone needs a player to fill up a private game with car sets from the 80's and early 90's, I will be glad to help fill out the grid :wave:

Knowing BATracer, that's a sure sign that the game's got an awful season planned for you, lol.;) Ten straight retirements from now on, it'll be. **Prays he hasn't actually jinxed GhostR's season...**

Honestly, my F1 1986 season is really frustrating right now... it's just mad. Sometimes so far, I'll dominate and win, on other occasions I'll get overtaken really quickly and easily and tumble down the field to finish 11th or something, for no apparent season. How am I supposed to plan a strategy when that happens... The tactics/strategy remain the same. There's no blatant difference between different circuits that seems to explain these wild contrasts. I just don't get this game at times. Maybe that's just F1 1986 for you, rather than BATracer per se, though.

I was fifth in my first Sevens race, though. :eek: So far, so simple, so here comes the pain...

Nah, the jinx will come from having actually had the best three fastest qualifying laps!!!

My 2009 Toyota is definitely jinxed. Had a good run from the back going in my previous race, despite wing damage on the first lap, on the right strategy ... pace car comes out 9 laps before due to pit for one and only stop, and my teammate pits from 2 places in front of me so I get delayed. Gah!

Scored a point in a Force India in another series though, happy with that one.

Blimey, so no fluke circumstances or anything? We had a Lola 1-2 in qualifying in Monaco in our '97 game... in the wet, though. I think.

I managed third in the points in a Toyota in an '09 private game recently actually, and yes, something similar happened to me in Malaysia - the weather changed, my team-mate up ahead decided to switch tyres on just the same lap where I'd been scheduled to make my first stop. I had to wait and finished ninth; she won. A completely unavoidable coincidence whereby I 'took one for the team'. I pipped her in the standings on the final round, though, despite my chancy approach to the last few rounds whereby I was searching for wins rather than simply points... but couldn't quite get one. Gah. I was even dominating in Singapore, only to make a driver error really late on, but still prove quick enough to work my way back up to sixth in the approximately three laps that remained. :(

Fun season, though. I wonder whether they're going to downgrade the Toyota and upgrade the Ferrari, given recent changes of form in real life. :eek:

No fluke. Think some of the others played things a bit safe and got caught out :). Finished tenth in the end, lost places at the start and my race strat didn't work out either. Elected to go a bit too conservative on that side I think, after blitzing to the pole.

I won my first try in a RBR.

Ironically, the battle came down to the Brawns versus the RBR cars...

Im not really good at F1 so it was a pleasant and hard fought win. Strategy was king. My team mate and the Brawns would qualify light, id go long, and it worked often enough to win me the title.

Oooh, now that would be fun. As would F1 1967, if that'll ever see the light of day... it would make '86 look like a pony trial though, wouldn't it...

Did I mention in this thread yet that I really really really really really really really REALLY want a WRC one? :D Even simply a Generic series could be unspeakably brilliant on BATracer IMO, if they could get a format for it somehow that doesn't make each game too long or too awkward - you could have big fields, several categories, all the obvious WRC models (in their most up-to-date iteration) since '97 to choose from, F1 '86 style unpredictability... I hope it's not just an unworkable dream to get one that's usable and popular.

Maybe making a DTM game the next "official" Atlas one may be the best idea. Or I'd be prepared to start one anyway, if anybody's still interested.;)

BTW, just a message to anyone interested that there's an F1 1997 game I'm involved in that's still looking for entrants. Only seven cars taken so far. http://batracer.com/...om/-cj?&D

It's now been posted on the Forum. Any dogs of the cousin of the elder step-brother of the cat of the Happy Meal of the mother of the distant millionaire relative of any remaining interested members of this board, feel free to hop in while there are still seats.

With the new Clan Ranking rules Atlasholics is as of Today 22th Clan overall!

And we don't even have 10 players doing public games, some are doing just privates. And McFly is on a sabbatical!

If you like to play play some public as well, perhaps we could be top 10 for a day or 2! :D

That's bizzare. I wonder what criteria Jules is basing that on?

'Roland McFly' is retired. If I choose to return it'll be under a different KT and name. But I'm enjoying life outside the box for now. :)

12nd as of Today, Zippel. :D

The new criteria is explained in the home page -- and detailed in the BB -- but to make it short recent success values more than the members' carved in stone WR points. If you log-in you'll as well find a new 'Clan Statistics' page and you'll see how we are doing. Hope if -- or should I say when? -- you come back you join us like your alter-ego McFly did!  ;)

P.S. I would even guess the WR itself will change to reflect the same recent performance eventually, btw.

I wonder if there are any more on the horizon ... I know F1 '67, F1 '79, SuperGT, MotoGP and NASCAR are all near completion (though Jules claims the '67 carset has tons of new features that while he thinks are really cool, will take forever to code; then again, he has been known to lie through his lying little teeth before), and a Pre-War Grand Prix set will be entering the builder shortly.
