Live for Speed S2 Alpha Patch W Released

The Live for Speed devs have released Patch W for their impressive racing sim. After taking it for a spin, the first thing I noticed was the much improved sound. The audio is like night and day compared to the previous version and it's a welcome change in my opinion. There's also plenty of other changes and improvements included with the patch such as being able to set up different views for specific cars, improved 2D graphics, interface enhancements and more. Check out this thread at the LFS forum for a complete list. If you are currently running Patch V, just fire up LFS and go to the "Display Games List" and you will be given the option to receive the auto-update. It's a quick download and only took about 30 second on a broadband connection. The full version of the sim is also available in the Live for Speed downloads section. If it's been a while since you've checked out LFS, now would be a good time to give it another go. The devs are continuously improving this already excellent sim and their efforts are worth supporting.
