Taking ages to install test drive unlimited, as it's bloody 8 gb!

Just downloaded it from a 3.7 gb .zip file, which when unpacked is 8gb.

I want to play this game now! I was so jealous when reading about Xbox360 owners playing it! Wonder if the PC version will differ in any way? like more people viewable online.

doesn't take long to load now it's installed.

However, I think my PC needs an upgrade. It struggles a bit.

It's ok at slow speed but when you doing over 100 mph it gets a bit choppy, and that's with detail turned down

Gay. My computers a bit shit tho.

Also doesn't work brilliantly with my Force Feedback Wheel... A slight delay in response of the wheel in game, causes it hard to correct slides etc.

Do you guys have the option to turn all driving aids off on Xbox360?

looking at the screen shots of the PC version other people have shown on the atari forum, my Graphics card definately needs a upgrade.

Was good fun tho... me, a dodgy viper and a ferrari 430 speeding together at over 140 mph, weaving in and out of the traffic.

loads in 30 seconds and that includes starting the console and getting into the game, the PC needs starting up which takes about 30 seconds, then installing which can take up to 20 mins, then 15 seconds to load
