F1 World Grand Prix Hints: ------ As is the case in any racing game, nothing will hurt you like a sluggish frame rate. Even if the delay is barely perceptible, you'll lose the tiny fragments of visual information that are necessary to keep your car where you want it to be. Fortunately, F1 World Grand Prix has enough graphic detail and resolution adjustments to get the game running quickly on most machines. Remember that by making your adjustments while on the racetrack (paying particular attention to the Clipping control), you'll not only have a visual demonstration of the effect you're having on picture quality but will also gain access to the game's nifty frame rate counter. If you opt to contest F1's Simulation mode, brake lockups and the off-track horrors they produce will quickly become your most prominent foe. Sadly, the game's numerous driver's aids do not include a Traction Assist. And the Braking Assist function kicks in far too early, thus adding several seconds to each lap time. The only way to effectively combat all that unwanted skidding is learn exactly where that fine line between braking and skidding is. Once you have a general idea, you must never, ever exceed it. F1 World Grand Prix is a very "sudden" affair, requiring lots of quick, darting movements and instant acceleration or deceleration. Probably for this very reason, a joystick offers far better response than a wheel.
