  1. rFactor 2: roadmap update Luglio 2017

    Il team Studio 397 ci aggiorna con il roadmap update di luglio sullo sviluppo in corso riguardo il suo rFactor 2. Come prima cosa, ci ricorda l'avvio del torneo Worlds Fastest Gamer in collaborazione con la McLaren, con gli eventi sul circuito di Silverstone, quindi viene confermata la nuova McLaren 650S GT3 con licenza ufficiale ed un corposo aggiornamento per il circuito di Zandvoort, non mancano migliorie alla grafica DirectX 11 ed alla UI, oltre che al modello fisico dei pneumatici. Il tutto condito da qualche screens inedito. As we’re counting down to the start of the McLaren World’s Fastest Gamer rFactor 2 competition, it is time for another roadmap update! We have so much underway at the moment in many areas, however, we are not quite ready to show it all. Competition As we previously announced, McLaren’s World’s Fastest Gamer starts soon, and we are really excited that rFactor 2 was chosen as the flagship qualifying platform. This competition aligns with the overall competition structure that we are currently building, allowing tournament style events that extend all the way to a license progression system. Our competition platform will be unique in many ways: we will have our own structured competition and, in addition, support the community. We actively believe in the strength of our community to run outstanding events, both online and onsite. Specifically, APIs will be made available to allow sanctioned leagues/competitions to integrate with our overall structure, providing visibility and consistency. We are also developing our license structure based on an overall percentage rating and a system that penalizes drivers for off-track or bad driving by giving time penalties instead of relying on an independent safety rating. Content We have some even more exciting news: it’s no secret that we are releasing a McLaren GT car. And now, we are pleased to announce that it will be….drum roll please… the awesome McLaren 650s GT3! This McLaren will be used in the World’s Fastest Gamer competition and will be available for you all as a paid item in our upcoming item store at the start of August. We’re really excited to launch with this car, which was developed in close cooperation with McLaren. But that’s not all! This car will also be part of a soon-to-be-released wider pack, reaffirming our ambition to align our content! What a tease! Many of you saw our rendition of Zandvoort at the Max Verstappen days. Since then, we have optimised and further enhanced the track. Like the McLaren above, Zandvoort will be used in the World’s Fastest Gamer competition and will be released as a free addition. Check out some screens below! Additionally, we are working on some new significant track projects and will share more in the next couple of months. DX11 Ever since the beginning of the year, we’ve showed you the evolution of our DX11 graphics engine. Right now, we’re close to the point where we are happy enough with the visuals and performance of this engine to soon switch it to become the default. We will keep the DX9 engine around as an option for a little while longer, at least until we’ve rolled out the new overlays (see below). This also does not mean we are done developing the engine. We still have many bigger and smaller improvements to make it look better, and we will keep pushing those out in the upcoming months. At this point, we would also like to thank everybody who actively participated in our open beta. Your input was very helpful and allowed us to improve the whole engine, and VR mode, a lot quicker and better. UI Not only are we putting the final touches on our in-game user interface, as you have read above, we are also about to roll out the first parts of the new competition infrastructure, which will fit right in with the new UI. To show you some of the last details we are currently working on, we’ve captured two details of the UI, starting with the calibration screen for your wheel and pedals. As you know, you could always calibrate axes visually, but when specifying the ranges of motion and the deadzones, you had to physically move your wheel or pedal in the right position to set such a limit. Now we’ve included not only the exact numbers, but you can also directly edit them to fine tune them exactly the way you want without having to mess around with text files. A second detail we’d like to show is what we’ve done with the garage setup screens. There was already a way to compare, and we made that a bit smarter, but we also added a quick way for you to see what changes you made to the current setup compared with the one you saved last. In the shot, you see two gear ratios that have an orange font. Those are ratios you’ve changed. That way you can quickly get an overview. It’s little things like this we are still tweaking. We know it’s taking a bit longer than you, and we, anticipated, but the wait is almost over! Physics One of the things we have been working on over the last few months is our tyre model. You may have noticed some changes in the latest version of the Radical, and you will also see them in the upcoming McLaren. These updates reflect our work on improving accurate tyre fidelity. We have a number of tyre updates underway, making one of the best tyre models in consumer racing simulation even better. Overlays We have been working hard to create a solution for overlays. As you know, we aren’t great fans of rendering over rFactor 2 screens as this can cause issues that become hard for us to resolve. We have built a solution using HTML. Shortly, we will be allowing 3rd parties to develop their own overlays, not just for broadcast, but for in-game HUDS through an API. Misc For those of you who don’t know, this year’s Sim Expo will be held on the 16/17th September at Nurburgring – another great chance for all of sim racing to come together. We will be there, of course, showcasing some cool future features and content, so make sure you pop by!

SIMCO WTCC 2016-2017 current version: 1.31 release date: 20 july 2017 1.31 changelog - lower tire grip - edited damage model - more turbo sounds - updated textures (Gleason, Ehrlacher, Nagy) - new cars (Fernandes, Szabo)
  4. Scopriamo il simulatore Chevrolet

    Grazie ad un articolo pubblicato dal mensile Racer, scopriamo il simulatore professionale della Chevrolet, situato a Huntersville, in North Carolina (USA), utilizzato per la simulazione delle vetture Nascar. The simulator itself is the cockpit of a race car. Drivers climb in like they would a car, strap in with the same seat belts, look at the same digital dash, and use a standard steering wheel. The shifting mechanism even came from Hendrick Motorsports. Once inside, the top comes down completing the car look with the roof, windshield cut out, and driver's side window complete with window net.
  5. Se state pensando di acquistare (fra i vari modelli disponibili) o di realizzarvi da soli (allora correte in questo topic) un bel volante direct drive, troverete sicuramente molto interessanti questi due video che ci raccontano dell'utilizzo di un volante direct drive con Assetto Corsa e con rFactor 2. Quali sono le differenze? Scopriamolo...
  6. Dopo la recente Radical SR3, il team Studio 397 ha rilasciato in nottata tramite Steam un nuovo aggiornamento per il suo rFactor 2, sempre relativo alla release DirectX . La nuova build, oltre ai consueti bugfix, implementa anche i profili per i volanti Fanatec ed il supporto, molto importante, per le multi GPU e multi monitor. Update time! - Fixed artifacts on old real road shader. - Fixed screen capture in TTool. - Fixed multiple controller profiles so JOY1 is default controller mapping. - Added controller profiles for Fanatec wheels: Fanatec CSW v2.5, Fanatec CSW v2, Fanatec CSR Elite, Fanatec CSL XBOX, Fanatec CSL PS4. - Added support for mulit-gpus and multi-monitor selection, available via drop downs in Laucher config. - VR Added re-center view now assignable to a key (default is Backspace). - VR Fixed Track loading screen Da segnalare inoltre, agli appassionati di karting ed rFactor 2, il rilascio dello spettacolare kartodromo di Genk, che vedete nel trailer qui sotto.
  7. Available on Steam: CLICK HERE Located in Belgium, Karting Genk is Europe's largest outdoor karting circuit and belongs to the top in the world! CIK-FIA Layout: The 1.4 km long competition circuit is CIK-FIA homologated, which means it meets the strictest safety standards. It is designed so that any pilot and any kart can go above the limit. Technical and yet fast-paced. Alonso Rental Layout: The 550m Alonso circuit is great for those who want to taste karting for the first time. Ideal for some fun with friends. fonte Studio 397

  12. rFactor 2: F1 2017 Mod by ACFL - Apex

    Dopo il rilascio dell'update 1.4 per Assetto Corsa, il team ACFL, in collaborazione con Apex Modding, ha rilasciato anche per rFactor 2 la prima versione beta del F1 2017 Season Mod. Il download richiede una donazione di 3 euro per questa release beta, che diventeranno 5 euro per la versione definitiva. Tutti i dettagli a questo link del forum.
  13. Studio 397 ci aggiorna sullo sviluppo del suo rFactor 2 con il nuovo roadmap update del mese di giugno. Fra le tante novità e migliorie dell'aggiornamento troviamo vari upgrades per la Formula 2, una divertente paint competition dedicata alla Radical e scopriamo anche il prossimo arrivo di una nuovissima McLaren GT che sarà utilizzata nell'imminente torneo Worlds Fastest Gamer della McLaren. Roadmap Update June 2017 Welcome back to another monthly update. I’m sure many of you have watched the 24 hours of Le Mans over the weekend. What an exciting race that was, and good news for us as, although they did set a new fastest lap time in qualification, they did not break the record for the most number of laps driven in the race, so we can continue as Studio 397 for another year! We are heavy in development currently in all areas and look forward to bringing you several updates over the next few months and beyond. Starting on August 1st we will open registration for the rFactor 2 round of the World’s Fastest Gamer competition by McLaren. The winner of that competition will be offered one of the best jobs in esports: that of an official simulator driver in the Formula 1 team. In four rounds people will battle to set the fastest time on different configurations of Silverstone and Zandvoort and compete head to head in weekly races for championship points. These races will all be done in a soon-to-be-announced McLaren GT car. UI We have been getting a lot of questions on our new UI lately, which is taking us a bit longer than we anticipated. We’ve already shown you various new screenshots, so we thought this month might be a good time to explain a little bit more about its technical background. For some of you all these terms might be a bit too technical. They are all modern web technologies that allow us to create an interface that is flexible and accessible from all kinds of locations. A few months ago we already explained the UI is built with HTML. We have chosen to embed a modern browser to render it, and the actual connection with the local game is done via a REST based interface. This interface allows you to control all aspects of the game, and because this technology will both be added to the client and dedicated server, it means we have vastly extended the ways in which you can write all kinds of tools on top of that. Just as an example, this enables you to create live timing pages that can be used as an overlay for broadcasting. You might have seen this a couple of weeks ago when VEC broadcast their 24h race in DX11. There are many other possible applications though, such as remotely connecting to the garage of a team mate and making improvements to his setup while he is still driving. Content We have converted most of our content to DX11 by now, but there are still a few items left. Alongside this roadmap update, we will release two updated pieces of content tomorrow. The São Paulo track, which has seen various texture updates and the Formula 2, which had both texture and physics updates, details of which can be found in the changelog below. In terms of new content, we mentioned the McLaren GT car earlier and cannot wait to show you more updates on it, content which is aligned is important to us, and over the next couple of months we hope you will be pleasantly surprised! Additionally, we are working hard on bringing Zandvoort to you in all its glory and of course are close to releasing a fantastic car for racing the Radical SR3. Radical Paint Competition It’s paint time! That’s right, get your team’s or personal livery in the official release of the Radical SR3. We will add the top 20 designs into the game as part of the release of the Radical SR3. We have created a special “paint version” of the car, which is available in the workshop. If you subscribe to it, it will automatically be downloaded and installed. Included with the car is a template, which can be found in the “Templates” folder of your rFactor 2 install. You can use any paint program that can load PSD (Photoshop) files. We advise you to first make a copy of the file before you start painting. When you have created your paint, save it as a DDS file. The folder you should use for that can be seen in the showroom if you’ve loaded the car there. You might need to hit “CREATE DIR” to create the folder the first time, and if you’ve updated the paint while the game was still loaded, hit “RELOAD” to refresh the folder. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask in our forum or on Discord! For the record, you cannot yet drive the car, you can only look at it in the showroom (click on “TUNING” on the car screen). Talking about which, we spared no expense and built you a brand new showroom. We hope you like it! Guidelines No alcohol, tobacco or illegal products Any paint job you make is yours and not taken from someone else You will need to transfer rights to us for the paint to use in the game You guarantee it does not infringe on any copyrights of third parties, so no logos that you do not have permission to use How to enter Please read the guidelines above, then email us on radicalpaints@studio-397.com with 3 images from the showroom, a download link to your PSD and the driver and team name you want to use for your car. The deadline for submission is midnight GMT 27th June 2017! Miscellaneous We know with DX11 that many of you cannot use plugins that render to the screen, and we are currently reviewing the best way to add this capability in a future-proof and rock solid way. Our current method of giving plugins access to the screen can cause issues with the stability of our platform as a whole. As a final note we are proud to announce that we’ve signed a license agreement with MoTec and will add official support for their tools to our simulation. More details about this will be released in the upcoming months. In the mean time, enjoy the summer! Changelog Build (DX11) Fixed: VR trackside cameras. Fixed: VR Showroom is now rendering properly. Fixed VR Monitor and replay working in-game. Fixed: Multi-monitor selection now available. Fixed: Minor issues with UI font. Fixed: AI way-points now show in Dev Mode. Fixed: Zoom and out of focus elements in track-side cameras when in multi-view mode. (Triple screen) Fixed: Focus on UI elements in Viewer.exe Fixed: Real Road rendering issues. Added: Brand New High resolution “Hangar” style showroom to better showcase cars. Added: VR Improvements to the Post processing effects by disabling the Depth-of-Field. Updated: Minor performance and video memory improvements. Updated: Showroom post process preset. Updated: The graphics engine now renders ambient shadows while in the showroom. Formula Two Full CPM tyre upgrade. AI improvements to help launch on race starts. AI now take longer to warm up tyres. AI correlation tweaks to slightly decrease grip. Added RCD / talent file. AI tweaks to make them faster overall. Lower initial tyre temperatures and more pressure buildup. Softened front ARB. More damping in suspension components. Minor tyre tweaks to include more damping. Correction to low downforce package to add stability. Added optional caster upgrade to help increase the cornering forces in the FFB. Reduced flatspot intensity on front tyres. Softened steering slightly. Low-end torque slightly increased. Corrected unsprung inertia. New engine throttle map. Softened chassis. Improved inertia. Lowered max brake force. Set default brake pressure to realistic typical usage. Rear ARB increased to be bit stiffer and better match the data. Reduced fuel consumption by appropriately 20%, this should give more plausible fuel consumption figures. Slightly less dirty air in the slip-steam (in particular, less understeer so you can follow a tiny bit closer). Front ARB now displays stiffness to make it clearer. Wheel rate correction. Added chassis flex. Added new steering system. Softened shifts, this should make up-shifts more harmonious especially in mid-corner

Miscellaneous We know with DX11 that many of you cannot use plugins that render to the screen, and we are currently reviewing the best way to add this capability in a future-proof and rock solid way. Our current method of giving plugins access to the screen can cause issues with the stability of our platform as a whole. As a final note we are proud to announce that we’ve signed a license agreement with MoTec and will add official support for their tools to our simulation. More details about this will be released in the upcoming months. In the mean time, enjoy the summer! Changelog Build (DX11) Fixed: VR trackside cameras. Fixed: VR Showroom is now rendering properly.

  20. Il gruppo di Slow Motion ha rilasciato per rFactor 2 la nuova versione aggiornata 1.1 della divertentissima Formula Predators, la monoposto low cost italiana creata dal vulcanico Corrado Cusi e protagonista del campionato monomarca Formula Promotion, che ben conosciamo su DrivingItalia anche grazie al lavoro incredibile fatto dai ragazzi di SRZ Motorsport. La nuova release offre la compatibilità con l'ultimo update DirectX 11 di rFactor 2 e, come vedete dalle immagini, migliora sensibilmente la resa grafica della vettura.
  21. Il gruppo di Slow Motion ha rilasciato per rFactor 2 la divertentissima Formula Predators, la monoposto low cost italiana creata dal vulcanico Corrado Cusi e protagonista del campionato monomarca Formula Promotion. I know, the mod is not of great interest… But these cars, in real life, have a good success and since years, mainly due to the very affordable cost for racing a whole season, the very low cost for buying one of them, the opportunity to rent one of them and the great feeling that transmit when you fight with other drivers, there are tens and tens of amateurs that race in the championship and some special events… also more than 50 drivers per event. I had a lot of difficulties in getting real data and, in the end, the best I got was the feedback of a couple of teams and some driver. In effect the car was developed without any CAD aid, nor a spreadsheet, but with a lot of attempts and tests on track. And the original version for rFactor1 was developed by few very skilled guys of S.RW. (at the time they were attending graduate studies in subjects related to the physical models) so I used several original values. Below is the text that comes into the workshop on Steam: rFactor2 version by Slow Motion Group - 3D is Property of Predator's Owner - Initial porting under full authorisation of S.RW. PLEASE NOTE: the mod comes with 2 classes, Factory and Sim... Factory is like the real world car, Sim has few different finals and less lasting tires for online purposes. READ CAREFULLY: THE CAR WAS MANUFACTURED FOR VERY SHORT TRACKS, in real life Italian tracks like Varano, Cremona, Cervesina that unfortunately aren't yet available in rFactor2. I strongly suggest to use tracks like Mores, Adria and similar karting style tracks for feeling how the real car behaves, in fact the car hasn't differential, nor traditional left and right rear suspensions and axles, so, in few words, the car turns more or less increasing or decreasing the front ARB; there is also only one central spring in front and the steering wheel is VERY VERY LIGHT! The typical behaviour of the real car is that the perfect path in "fast" corners (fast for that car, lol) means to feel the car "floating" on the surface. To achieve this perfect behaviour you need to push the throttle in the right moment and right rpm, to avoid the under steer and, on the contrary, controlling the over steer to have the "floating" effect. It needs few time to well understand how doing it. Another "feature" is that you must drive the car in a dirty way entering the corners, to be faster... and you MUST WORK A LOT WITH THE STEERING WHEEL. All these are peculiarities of the Predator's PC010, no faults. If you want to use the mod in "normal" tracks, you could find useful to add 1 or 2 degrees to the wings and increase stiffness of front ARB, otherwise you will have only mechanical grip. Be careful vs. AIs: they are very aggressive but perfectly tuned for short tracks... to fight at Mores is very very awesome! Of course the build is available on Steam, to be subscribed... Here are the links to the rfcmp, in case of need: DOWNLOAD Build 1.1 DX11 READY and with animated lollipop is available!

  22. Il modding team Slow Motion ha finalmente rilasciato per rFactor 2 l'attesissima prima versione 1.0 del suo GP3 Series 2016/2017, un mod assai curato e completo che ci permette di simulare con il titolo di Studio 397 il combattuto campionato delle monoposto GP3. Le monoposto del mod includono, fra i vari dettagli tecnici, persino l'utilizzo dell'ala mobile DRS. Finally the GP3 Series is available!Below you can read credits, same text that is into Steam Workshop. I think useless to start writing in details about the development of the mod... it would deserve a novel. Much better that you start a safe approach to the mod and you will discover how much it is sensitive to any little change in the setup, closed to the real cars. You will also discover slight differences between the 2016 and 2017 cars and probably in the future we'll provide updated liveries and helmets for the 2017 season.
  23. Il team Studio 397 ha rilasciato alcune ore fa un nuovo aggiornamento per l'ultima versione beta Direct X 11 del suo rFactor 2. L'update si preoccupa in particolare di apportare miglioramenti per gli utenti di periferiche VR (tipo Oculus Rift), alcuni bugfix ed anche perfezionamenti notevoli al sistema di illuminazione, come si nota dall'immagine allegata. Discussioni in questo topic del forum. We pushed through another Beta update today with lots of improvements especially for our VR users, we also updated some of our ambient lighting, make sure you try it! 1/6/2017 Build ID : 1859720 - VR Mirror mode selectable in Launcher config - Further VR performance optimizations - Fixed crash in Dev mode loading tracks - General improvements - Lighting improvements/balancing
  24. We’re very pleased to announce the 1967 Formula 2 Mod for rFactor 2. The 1967 European F2 season was the first using the new 1.6 litre engine formula and would establish the dominance of the Cosworth FVA engine in the class. Prominent chassis constructors such as Brabham, Lotus, McLaren, Matra, Cooper and Lola were all represented in the class throughout the 10 race season. During the 1960’s, many established Formula 1 drivers would compete in Formula 2 events. However, the two tier championship structure meant that “graded” drivers were ineligible for points but were able to compete for wins. Graded drivers that competed in the the 67 F2 season included Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme, Jochen Rindt, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Bruce McLaren and John Surtees. Though the championship was won by Jacky Ickx (Matra) followed by Frank Gardner (Brabham) each with 1 win, the season was dominated by graded drivers with Rindt (Brabham) taking 5 wins with Clark (Lotus) and Stewart (Matra) taking 1 win each. This mod will include 3 unique cars and their drivers of the 1967 European F2 season: Brabham BT23 FVA Drivers: Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme, Frank Gardner, Jochen Rindt, Alan Rees, Robin Widdows (DX9) (DX9) McLaren M4A FVA Drivers: Bruce McLaren, Piers Courage, Alan Rollinson (DX9) (DX9) Lotus 48 FVA Drivers: Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Oliver (WIP) (WIP) The 3 cars are obviously at different stages of development. All are still WIP. Credits Klaasvh : Modelling (Primary),Skins Crossply: Textures, Materials, Additional Modelling. ISI: Sounds, Base Physics, Additional Models and Textures (Brabham BT20)
