It may have suffered the same ill-effects as the on-road version. Your view is either too far away, making the car too small to judge speed, angle, distance, etc... OR, you were too close and couldn't see far enough ahead on the track. I imagine it would be exaggerated by off road, since you need to be able to "Fly" the car over jumps and make corrections in the air. Also, the company that produced it made it almost impossible to resell, or buy a used copy. So once you bought it, you were stuck with it, and that can KILL any game-like software's staying power.

If it does finally come out, then you'll need a 60 inch or larger display to play it. A 32 inch LCD tv is too small. :lol:

Supposedly the new version is comming out in late 1Q of '09. I did some searching for it about a month ago and that's what I found.

I just got the onroad version about 4 days ago and i love it. It is so much different with the radio then with the keyboard.

I was disappointed with Virtual RC. Granted, it probably doesn't have the budget that Real Flight G4 does, but I thought that Virtual RC could have been better in other places, such as sounds, the sounds really let me down :(

I will be checking out the new version though.

The on road version was Frustrating. I bet the off road version was worse! You'd need a 60 inch monitor to play it. Anything smaller, and you either can't see the track, or you can't see the car well enough. You can zoom back and forth, driving yourself crazy, but it'll never work unless its HUGE.

I'd love to have an off road sim, but I want one with dynamic zoom. I need to look ahead to see the corner coming. If you zoom out enough to see the corner, you can hardly tell what the car is doing, its a pixilated mess. Then, if you zoom in enough to see what the car is doing, you CANNOT see the corners coming. I raced on road for several years, and that sim never even came CLOSE to reality. You'd need to zoom out, and have an ENORMOUS monitor.
