Grand Theft Auto V

Post  MJDixon on Wed Apr 22, 2015 11:31 pm

Thought I'd post this just incase you're interested in robbery and such. Razz

Finally got GTA V to work on my PC by unplugging my Saitek Throttle (obviously), turns out it's actually a very good game on the PC!

What's more, there's an Online mode, where you can create your own character and play like normal GTA, and team up and pull off big jobs, and the like (I think you need 4 to do one of those) - which seems pretty fancy!

I've currently got a 1970s Private Investigator thing going on for some reason (was either that or 'down with it youth'):



I've also set up a 'crew' called CI19 (as in CI5 from The Professionals, it was going to be CI6, but it has to be four characters and I liked the sound of 19 for some reason Laughing ) together with a fellow I used to play Star Wars the Old Republic with.

So let me know if you want to join the not very Professionals. Razz

And here's a film from 1969 featuring Michael Caine to get you in the mood, because clearly all the best films are films from 1969 featuring Michael Caine:

Good show!

Managed to get my Joystick to work using an Xbox controller emulator called x360ce - apart from Yaw, which seemingly isn't an axis in the GTA controller settings, so just have to have an on/off control for rudder on - and got my TrackIR to sort of work using a program called FreePIE (pies sold seperately), other than that it doesn't recentre properly some times due to a mouse acceleration issue in GTA V:



But suffice to say it's a major improvement over their craptastic keyboard and mouse helicopter controls, that require you to have at least 3 arms - and make you fly like a drunk. Laughing

The Joystick also works very well for controlling motorbikes.

I may have a bit of an 80's thing going on at the moment. Cool

White suit nice. Not being a car buff myself, what car is that? I think the white suited Miami Vice used drive a white Ferrari, so you may have to go and rob one to complete the look. Cool

That's a legally different Lamborghini Miura, Speedy (like the one that has an 'accident' at the start of The Italian Job Razz )

Unfortunately there aren't many good 80's sports cars in GTAV, though I do have a red Ferrari convertible  for those Magnum P.I moments, but that's a 1960s one as well.

Hinkel is saving up for a legally different Aston Martin DB5 in the classic James Bond style - I'd get one but unfortunately it has tacky fake machine guns on the bonnet. Wink

I also have a legally different Stearman PT-17.

Hopefully you should recognise my car now, Speedy.  Razz

Only if it's a series of me ripping off various film scenes. Razz
