Old school F1 style racing
On top of that, the game can feel quite repetitive, what with fielding similar enquiries, budgets and decisions after every race. What should really pull you in is the obssessive attention to detail, as you pursue the perfect setup at every circuit - but there's rarely enough time to do this, with practice sessions and races often too short to achieve a full picture. It's unforgiving, too, though that's probably a reflection of reality more than a criticism.
Simulators should be tricky, and there should be no apology for that. Casual players might be baffled by the complexity, while those keen to endlessly tweak will find the time constraints restrictive.
There's no question, though, that this is a mighty fine simulator - and it's only going to get better. One easy fix would be to make race weekends generally longer. In the meantime, there's plenty here to keep you occupied. Apps and Games. Game reviews. Motorsport Manager. PC games.

Stuff says Motorsport Manager review An immersive, addictive F1 management sim with a slick interface and plenty of complexity.
F1 2013 Now Available on Mac
Perhaps this was unsupported by the game and not due to macOS or the Logitech G Once the main components were in place, I needed an external display because internal display eGPU acceleration would severely compromise graphics performance and gameplay enjoyment. After everything was up and running, I felt the excitement of a kid waking up Christmas morning.
Force Feedback worked great on this G27 racing wheel as evidenced by the violent arm movements seen in the photo below. The steering feel has a nice weight to it during gameplay. The last time I played racing games with this G27 was a long while ago, so I decided not to upload video of my repeat, high-speed wreckage. Speaking of crashing, F1 crashed a couple of times during the almost three hours of gameplay. It might simply be a compatibility issue with While I was at it, I ran this eGPU pairing through some benchmarks to show the improvement on gaming performance.
Here are the numbers.
Another benefit of using an external GPU enclosure for gaming on a Mac is its expandability and upgradability. The decision to go with the Sonnet Breakaway Box was to present a best-case scenario in terms of external graphics performance. Nevertheless the ability to transform a laptop such as the MacBook Pro into a good gaming computer in macOS is a dream come true. The ultimate takeaway from this experiment is that gaming on a Mac will improve in the very near future. Now that Apple is officially onboard to provide more capable hardware, game developers have a real motivation to get after the underserved Mac gamers.
We are more than ready to pay and play. Great write up, be nice to see some other games tested too. After mocking them up with paper, There seems to be a certain size that is indeed too small, too. I think manufacturers are trying to find this balance right now. As I understand it, there was an issue with many Thunderbolt 3 enclosures where they would artificially cap PCIe enclosures at 22 Gbps.
That has for the most part been resolved, and as a result 32 Gbps of the maximum 40 Gbps is available for the PCIe data. Does that help? If you want the best eGPU performance then go for a two cable solution. But Indianapolis got me into Sim racing. Also, I am not sure if I am thinking of the same game, but it was Ferrari: Formula 1. I do not remember a lot about the game feel itself now, but I do remember somewhat liking the game. I am the only dev on the game at the moment.
Any modifications or content is created by me and as you can expect, things can be a bit slow. It is hard to find people to help on a game which does not make a lot of money and is for the Mac. Why doesn't anyone want to work for no money and no fame anymore! Just kidding. As far as a "kext" goes, think of it as a driver for OSX. For some reason Apple left it out of Lion and Mountain Lion. It does not seem to conflict with anything in OSX so I am not sure why it was omitted.
But I have not tried every program in OSX though and I am sure it could conflict with something I do not think Apple is very interested in getting sim racers all the same benefits as their Windows counterparts. But is sure would be nice to maybe get some better hardware and customizable software that can be "fully" utilized on the Mac. I see you know about Ambrosia Software.
You can always try their racing game also. It works on intel Macs and does also use FFB. Also, there are a ton of mods for the game available. But it is getting up there in the years and it shows quite a bit. My mistake -- the Mac wasn't my first computer: before the Mac I had an Amiga , and the Ferrari title was for that and the then-trying-to-compete-against-Apple Atari personal computer.
I do not think Apple is very interested in getting sim racers all the same benefits as their Windows counterparts.
This is just my opinion, because I don't know anything, but if anyone has any technically plausible idea why Apple dropped KEXTs and KEXT support in Lion and Mountain Lion, please cure me of my ignorance, because the only thing that makes sense to me is this: I believe with even more conviction now that Apple is consciously and aggressively trying to hamper third-party app and utility development, unless those apps and utilities are to be sold through the Mac App Store.
The sandboxing and privileges required of applications to access various parts of the system have caused some significant strain on the functionality of the products, and for that we are sorry. Please know that our developers are extremely talented individuals and have been diligently working on ways to fix the products that are effected. We sincerely hope that WireTap Studio will one day be as grand and elegant as it was when we originally conceived it.
A simple program that allowed you to effortlessly record specific audio sources, one that would allow you to edit and trim, and share the files you created. Haven't tried Ambrosia's racing game. I paid for my WTS long ago, back when it worked the way it was designed to work, but I think prospective buyers should know before buying that if they've messed around with a friend's Mac with an older OS and WireTap Studio on it, the one Ambrosia's selling now is seriously crippled, with no fix in sight.
