♥♥♥♥ of a classic
This is dicgusting IMO, they release the classic sim as if it's new!
Not only that but they make 0 changes, not even a compatability update or graphics touch up.
SimBin is a pathetic company and this ♥♥♥♥ hasn't gone un noticed.
BTW race 07 avb for 3$ >.>

Get of your high horse. Some games are better left untouched. They could've chosen not to release this. Instead, they did this as a fan service for those who want to keep this great game in their library forever. Because installing the original at the moment is complete hell, due to Starforce-DRM not being compatible with Windows 7. They released a digital download at their own website a few years ago, but due to a limited amount of payment methods, people like me couldn't buy it.

I wouldn't want this game to be upgraded with HD-textures. It would only make it look silly. This is the best racing sim ever made, and if you don't enjoy it, don't play it.

And by the way, how can it be '♥♥♥♥ OF A CLASSIC' if they didn't change anything?

I think steam is selling this game for too much, I was reading other forums and now I know, it's a bit expensive, I have the 2003 and 2004 season on my one and that was a lot cheaper. It was made a while ago and it sells for under 5 USD at a retail, pre-owned, but with a full installation so that you don't suffer someone else's poor skills at preserving a disc. since I got it pre-owned

They could have done a patch to improve SLI compatibility. Yes I got it to work but at game launch you can still see a problem exists and maybe not one that is too hard to fix IMO. It's a dump job is it still worth it very much yes but agree Simbin could have put a little more effoert into the rerelease of this thing. Oh and I agree in game graphics are fine and should be left untouched but still the game should load smoothly.

I'm glad SimBin released GTR via on Steam. I have an original game CD and box, but I've long since removed it from my computer because of StarForce. My primary problem with this release is price, $14.99. I think $9.99 is the sweet spot and $5.99 = fan service + instant buy.

Now, the real question is where is GTR 2 and GT Legends?

I could realistically see Sim Bin trying to get $19.99 for GTR 2 and $14.99 for GT Legends.

i think he's right actually i was just about to buy this thinkin it was a finally gettin updated and s*** but no...it was just the first one..even though it says the 2003 year it still isnt enought to dictate whether r not it was a NEW game or Not.....very misleading and dissapointing....guess i gotta buy injection bundle pack THEN buy gtr2 expansion

OVER Priced Period !!!
I would like to know if they will release gtr2 on steam.
I have both & unless they release both gtr 1 & 2 & don't see why i would want just the 1st 1 as a digital backup.
for those complaining bout Starforce-DRM, there are ways to by pass it.
I think they should have released GT legends & gtr2 @ the same time..

Too those of you crying about the cost and no updates, then leave it alone and go play some arcade game then and leave the racing to sim racers.

I'm glad to see this released as is GTL now too. StarForce was and is a pain in the ♥♥♥♥ for me and I'm glad to see these titles on STEAM as they at least should end the problems of that compatability.

Also GTR has been off the market for some years now. Thus the 2012 release date. And as far as the series dates go, well those are correct. This is the 2003 season of the FIA GT Championship which ran as part of the LG Super Race Weekends. If you were really GT racing fans you would know what has happened this past season with SRO and the FIA GT1 World Championship. Then you would not be complaining about something that is a true classic of a title and is at least back in the market again. If your wanting to race online with this then get a website up and running to promote a league or do it here on steam and get a league going so people will race online.

As far as SimBin being a poor company well I feel that they were totally mismanaged, and that's starting with Henrik Roos and going down the ladder. SimBin only exists now in name only since RaceRoom now owns SimBin and they are the ones that are putting these old titles on Steam. I'm not too sure about how RaceRoom is going to operate, kinda reminds me of Ron Dennis and McLaren, but at least these two titles are back.

Now for me to dig into my sim racing archieves, stored on CD's thank you very much, and start to add in some content to a real classic of a racing sim.

I wish these entitled kids would get banned. I dugup my retail copy of GTR, activated the key on steam and found my old receipt for GTR1 £29.99 :O

Good for u mate, that what i paid back then, still, i have a bad memory & i swear i ran this in a higher res then 1280/720...or something like that cause i was using a 23" monitor or a 27...anyhow, my ONLY gripe is that the res is stuck in low....
balil 27 déc 2012 à 1h21 
Yeah config.exe is outdated now but you can play in higher res by manually changing "VIDEOMODE=xx"value in Config.ini. I don't know what res you're playing but for me it was "VIDEOMODE=67" at 1680x1050. This value seems to be slightly different from one graphic card to another so it's a bit of hit or miss but if you happened to have GTR2 simply copying the value from it should do the trick. If you don't then try 85 or 118 for 1920X1080 which seems to be a common res for most people with a single monitor setup:)
