      ISRTV Amazon Store   11/29/16

      Hi All, We created an Amazon store that's pretty basic and currently only for U.S. shoppers. If you purchase something from it and then other items through Amazon, we make a small commission. It won't cost anymore than Amazon normally does but will help support our show and website and would be greatly appreciated ! You can get to it by going here : http://www.isrtv.com/isrtv-amazon-store/ Thank for your support !

  2. At SimXperience, we're constantly at work evolving our Sim Commander software. Last week we came out with an update ( that added some experimental Simvibe effects. Two of them are specific to our chassis mode and one is available in both chassis and extensions. We'd love for you to check them out and provide feedback. To download the latest version of Sim Commander, you'll need to be logged into Sim Commander with your owners club account. In case you're not sure how to do that, I wrote a tutorial on it here. http://simxperience.com/Community/SimXperienceDevelopersBlog/TabId/783/ArtMID/1674/ArticleID/30/How-and-Why-to-Update-Sim-Commander-4.aspx We would appreciate your feedback on these new effects so that we can improve and finalize them. I set up three different threads here to discuss each effect: http://simxperience.com/Default.aspx?tabid=742&g=topics&f=4&name=SimVibe Tuning Also, here's a video on how to add the new effects.
  3. What's up ISRTV?

    Few things have been going on. 1) John lost his mother to cancer last month 2) John got married and is now in Italy on his honeymoon and will be back at the end of the month 3) You are correct, I work for SimXperience now and most of my day is consumed with it. I will be coming out with a Renovatio dash review soon. I also may do a video of me racing on GT Sport. The channel should be back to normal in June. We'll also be racing in the 24 Hours of LeMans together.

  7. AccuForce Pro europe shippment

    If you go to Simxperience.com and put the AccuForce into your shopping cart and create an account, you can advance through the order process to see what the shipping cost will be to your location. Regarding VAT and import taxes, you should probably check with your local shipping agency. SimX ships through UPS.

  9. Presenting Beyond the Gloves Episode 2. In this episode, Billy and John discuss ALL the information that spilled out on Project CARS 2 this week, and speculate on the little information we have on SimBin's GTR 3.
  10. Presenting our first episode of Beyond the Gloves...only one day late...technology man... This week, Billy kicks off the show with a discussion about what we expect from DiRT 4 and whether or not the info that's been released so far supports his and John's ideal rally title or not. As for John's topic, he discusses how sim racing has lead him to really caring about other forms of racing he usually wouldn't blink an eye at. Hope you enjoy this new angle at long-form sim racing discussion. And if you don't, we're sure you'll let us know in the comments...

  14. Which 1080 card?

    Not sure you will find a card or multiples that will be able to run a 7680x1440 resolution with all the eye candy enabled. That's some serious resolution to push. 1080 is going to be a huge jump in performance over the 295 though for sure. I know iRacing now can handle multiple GPUs, so maybe you're in luck. Have you asked for help in the iRacing forums ? Maybe somewhere there is running something like that in SLI.
  15. Sam did sell his OSW and bought another AccuForce during the Black Friday sale. He's not the only person that's done that either. Needless to say I'm going to be biased towards the AccuForce but I know first hand what goes on behind the scenes to continually improve Sim Commander not only for the AccuForce, but for motion and SimVibe as well. I'm sure the OSW is a great wheel. But does any version of it have a company behind it that's been in business for more than 10 years now, continually updates the software in house for every major title on the market and sells it as a complete turn key solution? The OSW camp has to rely on community updates, firmware that can't be sold with the wheel due to it being illegal and parts from various vendors for it to run. Do any of these OSW builders / sellers work directly with developers like SimXperience does? SimXperience has sent wheels to iRacing, ISI, Codemasters, Microsoft and Sector 3 to develop native support. We've reached out to Reiza, Kunos and Slightly Mad as well. The AccuForce also works with just about every out of production sim racing title too. The AccuForce also comes with a free version of SimVibe, in game on screen gauges that you can tweak and tailor as well as a tool that allows you to examine telemetry for every lap you turn with it. Does the OSW come with all of those extras and a warranty from a reputable company? What if one of these builders just decides to hang it up and close up shop? Berney has contemplated making Sim Commander compatible with the OSW but there's so many different versions out there, I don't personally think it will happen unless there's a standard set. Stepping off my SimXperience soap box now.. Wont be back to debate it either.
