Gaming

The earliest games I remember playing were on the Commodore Vic-20, they were text-based or 'write your own'. I never really used consoles probably due to the time experienced 'programming' on the Vic-20.

After the Vic-20, I was given a C-64 then Amiga by my parents, and this was when I really got into sim racing for the first time. The first major simulation being Geoff Crammond's F1GP, and eventually this led me to move through most simulations, and end up working for simulation developers myself.

Apart from racing simulations, space games like Elite, Wing Commander and the X series from Egosoft have been a solid focus. I use them to 'escape' from work.

 

iGP League of Rooks Season 4 Race 2 – Malaysia

Well if only I could run this race again. I got my first ever DNF (did not finish), and my second – both in the same race. Both drivers ran out of fuel when (according to the info panel) they should have been able to make it back.

This isn’t the first time I have seen this, it happened to Team Spamsac last season, and now I guess it was my turn. I knew I was cutting it fine, but I didn’t think it would be that close.

Everything was going so well, too. I was doing 1 less stop than those I was racing with for 9th and 10th places, and I was pretty close behind them. Again, I think my mistake cost my team points. It’s getting a bit frustrating that it’s so consistently my mistakes that are keeping me out of the points.

On a positive note, I will qualify for KERS after the next race. But unfortunately, because of my DNFs this week, I won’t be able to afford it. Sigh.
