iRACING UI: (5.05.03)

Hosted Sessions

  • Fixed an issue where Hosted Sessions could fail to be displayed after canceling a pending Hosted Session.

3D Car Viewer

  • Fixed an issue where the iRacing UI could fail to see paint file updates in folders with more than one space in the folder name, such as the "dirtsprint winged 305" folder.
  • Fixed an issue where refreshing the iRacing UI (Ctrl+R) while viewing the 3D Car Viewer could create a bad state.

Remember, the 3D Car Viewer should automatically update with any changes made to the paint folders; no need to refresh!

SIMULATION:

Physics

  • Fixed an issue seen on some vehicles with odd hyper-extended suspension behaviors.

Race Control

  • Fixed an issue that could occur where subsequent meatball black flags were not being recognized and triggered.

AI Racing

AI Racing is now available at the following additional tracks and configurations:

  • Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps - Classic Pits
  • Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps - Endurance
  • iRacing Superspeedway
  • Richmond Raceway
  • Watkins Glen International - Classic
  • Watkins Glen International - Classic Boot

AI Drivers have received additional training with the following vehicles:

  • Indy Pro 2000 PM-18
  • USF 2000
  • Audi RS 3 LMS
  • Kia Optima

Pace Car

  • Fixed an issue where the pace car would sometimes try to move up the track very quickly on ovals once it left the pit lane, sometimes even hitting the outside wall.

Spotter

  • Fixed an issue where lead-lap cars were sometimes not receive a spotter message about lucky dog or free-pass cars coming up behind them.

Pit Stop

  • The speech volume of Lollipop Guy has been reduced.

Rendering

  • Fixed an issue where the solar flare effect could render with a four pixel-wide defect when using 3-screen mode without actual bezels.

Visual Effects

  • Fixed an issue where sparks were not elongating in the correct direction, nor where they colliding with the track surface.
  • Fixed an issue where smoke puffs would move in world-space depending on the camera pitch and camera roll. This change also fixes an issue where smoke puffs would rotate with camera roll, rather than stay fixed in the world.

Audio

  • Improved undertray scrapes, grass scrapes, concrete scrapes and 3D curb impact sounds.

Telemetry

  • Two new tire telemetry variables have been added.
  • "PlayerTireCompound" and "PitSvTireCompound" indicate the current and pending tire compounds for the player's car respectively. Both are logged live and to disk.

Virtual Reality

  • Created a work-around for a reported bug in OpenVR where the SDK returns camera frustums with the top/bottom reversed, only when using a specific SDK routine to fetch the frustums. The theory is that this is what is causing eye alignment mismatches (even with SPS disabled) on some headsets.
  • If you suspect you are having this issue, to enable the work-around, set "FixGetProjectionRawBug" to 1 inside the "[OpenVR]" section of "rendererDX11.ini" file.

iRACING:

Status Page

A brand new System Status page has been added for iRacing!

https://status.iracing.com

  • This web page details the live status of a variety of iRacing's services and servers, allowing you to check-up on our online status at any time.
  • Click on any status report box to get a detailed timeline of that service's performance for the past hour.
  • Any current system-wide notifications will be displayed at the top of the page; such as planned maintenance, downtime, or a severe issue we need our Members to know about.
  • This web page can be accessed at any time from any device, and is designed to keep you informed.

iRACING UI: (5.06.04)

General

  • Fixed a rare issue where the iRacing UI could take the operating system's focus when the connection to the iRacing servers was suddenly severed due to an authentication issue.
  • Fixed an issue where the iRacing UI could visually lock-up if it was opened from Membersite when it was already open.

Hosted Racing

  • A new Session type, Warm-Up, may now be selected with some event types!
  • A Warm-Up Session precedes a Race Session, and gives drivers, teammates, broadcasters, and race officials some extra free-form time before the big event starts.
  • A Warm-Up Session may be used in Hosted Sessions that contain both a Practice and Qualify Session.
  • When selected, this new Session type includes a time duration slider and an input field for the new Warm-Up period, as well as the ability to set Track State and Time of Day parameters.

MEMBERSITE:

General

  • Fixed an issue where opting out of email settings was not being saved correctly.

Hosted Racing

  • A new Session type, Warm-Up, may now be selected with some event types!
  • See above for more information.

SIMULATION:

Race Servers

While a Race Server is creating splits and sessions for an event, no new registrations will be allowed for that event. This process occurs when the window for registering for an event as a participant closes. This is particularly helpful for large-scale special events and team events where dozens of splits and sessions are being created at the same time. Stopping new registrations will reduce the load on the scheduler. Further registration and joining of the sessions, for spotting, spectating, etc., will be allowed again after the sessions have been fully created and launched.

This change has no effect on members who register for an event before the splits and sessions are created.

CARS:

Dallara IR18

  • Audio levels for the limiter have been increased to 12300 RPM.

McLaren MP4-12C GT3

  • 2021 Season 1 BoP Adjustment: Fuel consumption rate has been reduced slightly.

NASCAR Cup Series

  • Contingency decals have been updated for the 2021 Season.

NASCAR Gander Outdoors

  • NASCAR branding has been updated for the 2021 Season.
