Virtual Grand Prix 2 Patched to v1.06
9:49 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Virtual Programming has released a patch that updates Virtual Grand Prix 2 to version 1.06. The patch addresses several problems, including sky detail and force feedback.
Here's a breakdown from their site:
a) SKY PROBLEMSVGP2, specifically created for the Mac, is a racing simulator that utilizes realistic driving mechanics in its gameplay. More information on this title can be found at VP's site.
This 1.06 version fixes a problem that may happen with some graphics card/drivers that prevents the sky from being displayed correctly. Unfortunately, the new sky-drawing method may be slower on older graphics cards, thus reducing the framerate (especially on old iMacs).
b) FORCE FEEDBACK
Because of the latency of many force feedback devices a tradeoff must be found between realism vs stability. This 1.06 version has a slightly improved filter that should reduce "resonance" and oscillations on the steering wheel. However, they will not be completely eliminated, because filtering these frequencies more will result in poorer realism in the simulation of forces applied to the steering wheel.
