    I have just been playing around with some settings and it turns out that the game runs and even looks better on my screen in 720p rather than 1080p. Less tearing and less of the jumpy skipping shadows. Also someone on another forum mentioned that 720p uses 4xAA compared to 2xAA with 720p (I cant confirm this with hard facts). On another note, i just love it when a car you REALLY want comes up in the used car lot when you just spent all your money on something else :nutkick: lol

    I can understand that you two are fairly new, or don't frequent TPU often. Oftentimes we like to keep a positive atmosphere. I know everyone who has posted so far....except you two. That being said, welcome to TPU, and I hope you both become very active in the future.

    We do have a term called "trashing a thread". Before you write your post, if you have to have a disclaimer saying you know you are going to get flamed for it, best keep it to yourself. This is a clubhouse. Do you know why we call it a clubhouse? because we carry big heavy clubs for trolls and such.

    BTW look on your front lawn. I took a huge dump there for you, to let you know how I felt. The next one will be in the living room :laugh:

    EDIT: I am going to start adding people tonight. PSN is TheBuziness, don't delete me!

    Yay, I got my car already. I just need some damn black paint. '03 Mazda Alteza (Mazda 6 in the US), though mine is an '06. I've tuned it with a bunch of parts and am beating the computer by quite a bit. Looking forward to racing some of you other FF'ers.

    *Oh, as a moderator.. Enough with the drama from all of you.

    Just go and buy a cheapo car (or a car you actually want) that's black, then you get 1 black paint item...

    I think i've figured it out...

    To make a private game
    You go to the community tab in GT mode (not the open lounge), make sure your profile is selected then click on the coffee cup 'My Lounge' icon.
    Click 'Join' and it will create a new Lounge (which i think is a private one)

    To join the private game
    Go to community, choose whoever opened the room, then click on thier coffee cup icon and join thier lounge.

    There is a electronic manual in game. And if you want the full printed manual, that is what that Apex magazine is.
