    Default WTF?

    Anyone tried connecting at this moment? It's 12:11am here and I don't have any intentions of sleeping. I want to play TD:U but then this crap happens!

    You unlock it when you get to Champion and access by the main menu. It make the driving physics more realistic, although gravity is almost non-existent. I likes it though, as do a lot of people. Much better than n00b/arcade/standard mode.

    Except all hardcore mode manages to do is make every car understeer ridiculously... I'm sure most 600 HP cars in real life with traction & stability control off, would be much harder to control, with less understeer and more chassis movement.

    I didn't say it was perfect, did I? Better than n00b mode anyhows where you can go round hairpins at stupidly fast speeds

    Yeah I always say that HCm is more realistic in the weight and power delivery of the car making oversteer fairly controllable however it has chronic understeer, bad brakes and seems to think you're on Mars gravity wise.
    I'm a bit mental.

    I wonder.. I always play in HC and without aids, I wonder what it would feel like going to n00b mode and turning all the aids back on

    Horrible. I do it occasionly to try and do some more missions. But then I crash, get angry, scream at my PC lots and go back to Hardcore mode. Then get even agrier 'cause I've gone screaming into a corner three times the speed I should be

    Hehe. I never knew the servers went down at that time but i have never been on TDU at that time in a long time so i wouldn't really have picked up on it. Thanks for the mention though. What time would that be in GMT?

    I play mostly in HC mode. Went back to regular (even with all assists off) and I felt like a superstar driver. Certainly makes it much easier.

    Hardcore mode was very simple to create for Atari. I am pretty sure they only reduced gravity and nothing else. That forces you to enter in corners at lower speed, starting braking at a much longer distance of the corner. One other thing, you can almost fly when going at +300km/h on a road with bumps.

    What is very cool, is Hardcore Mode on the track, with no electronical assistance (I find it better, even if I play with keyboard hehe^^).
