  1. 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!
  2. Il team Studio 397 ha rilasciato tramite Steam per il suo rFactor 2 la prima versione beta 0.2 del circuito olandese di Zandvoort 2017. Vi ricordiamo che il tracciato sarà utilizzato per la prossima prova del torneo Worlds Fastest Gamer della McLaren, giunta al secondo round. After the opening in 1948, the circuit was the home of multiple Formula 1 Grand Prix races. The sixties were the combativeness of the famous drivers Graham Hill, Jim Clark, and Jackie Stewart. They all won at least one of the races. Wolfgang von Trips and Jack Brabham also triumphed at the circuit of Zandvoort. In the seventies the circuit experienced a underwhelming period, with deadly accidents of Piers Courage in 1970 and Roger Williamson in 1973. Amongst the race winners were Niki Lauda , James Hunt, Mario Andretti and Alan Jones. 1985 saw the last Formula 1 Grand Prix, and it was again Niki Lauda that won the race in what turned out to be his last Formula 1 win. The circuit subsequently went through a rough phase, until the Masters proved to be a very popular event, spawning lots of drivers that ended up in Formula 1 such as David Coultthard, Pedro Lamy, Enrique Bernoldi, and Jos Verstappen. More recent examples are Takumo Sato, Christian Klien, and Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. Today, the track is popular amongst both teams and racing drivers. The friendly, incomparable Zandvoort hospitality and the unique atmosphere make Zandvoort a much sought-after track for international race series. It wasn’t long until ADAC GT Masters, FIA GT3 European Championship, FIA European Formula 3 Championship en Blancpain Sprint Series, came to Zandvoort.

  8. Dopo il successo della prima parte dello speciale The Big Three, dedicato ad Assetto Corsa, il secondo articolo della serie è dedicato interamente ad rFactor 2, simulatore di Studio 397, un titolo che nonostante gli anni non passa mai di moda. Ecco perché oggi cercheremo di vedere a che punto si trova del suo sviluppo e quali sono aspetti positivi e negativi che lo caratterizzano. Nello scorso articolo abbiamo parlato di quello che forse è il sim che a oggi va per la maggiore su pc, in altre parole Assetto Corsa. Quello italiano però, non è l’unico simulatore che gli appassionati di racing games hanno sui loro pc; infatti, c’è un certo rFactor 2, al suo quarto anno d’attività, che nonostante le mille peripezie e difficoltà, ancora oggi riesce a tenere incollati per ore allo schermo, garantendo una sana e buona dose di qualità. La storia di rFactor2 è di quelle travagliate: vide la luce nel 2013, per opera dell’ormai defunta ISI (in realtà gli ISI sono ancora attivi e stanno lavorando su di un nuovo titolo che NON sarà rFactor 3 ndUff), e avrebbe dovuto essere non solo il miglioramento del primo capitolo, ma anche la consacrazione definitiva nell’albo dei sim più apprezzati e ben realizzati di sempre. Tuttavia, nonostante le buonissime premesse (il motore fisico era ed è tuttora eccellente), non fece del tutto breccia tra la miriade di appassionati, per due motivi sostanzialmente: i pochi, pochissimi contenuti ufficiali e soprattutto il prezzo a dir poco eccessivo se si voleva avere il quasi imprescindibile mondo online. Questi due fardelli hanno rischiato di far cadere letteralmente nell’oblio un simulatore eccellente, ma per fortuna i ragazzi di Studio 397 sono entrati in gioco, hanno rilevato l’eredità di ISI e si sono rimboccati le maniche, nel tentativo di salvare un franchise che non meritava la fine che stava facendo. Mentre vi scrivo, rFactor2 è tornato a essere ciò che doveva essere in principio, un simulatore serio, efficace, capace di accontentare tutti quegli appassionati di sim che vogliono cimentarsi in qualcosa di più profondo e impegnativo. Il primo vero step fatto dalla software house olandese è stato quello di aggiornare il titolo alle ormai fondamentali Directx 11, con il risultato più evidente che è quello di aver svecchiato la grafica obsoleta che caratterizzava rFactor da sempre. Niente più colori piatti, sbiaditi o artificiali ma un generale e complessivo miglioramento della palette di colori e shaders; non ai livelli di altri titoli altrettanto blasonati, ma di sicuro è stato fatto un grande passo in avanti. Alla Studio 397 hanno lavorato sodo anche per aumentare i contenuti, inserendo auto come la Nissan GT500, un’auto della categoria SuperGT, che fa della precisione e inserimento curva il suo vero cavallo di battaglia. Sono state notevolmente migliorate le vetture di Formula Renault 3.5 e Formula Two, così come vecchie conoscenze quali i vari kart. L’ultima arrivata è invece la vivace e divertente Radical SR3 RSX, un vero gioiellino da portare a spasso per le piste più movimentate e old school in dotazione. A proposito di piste, molte di quelle ufficiali sono state riviste e migliorate e ha fatto la sua comparsa qualche mese fa una new entry americana: si tratta del NOLA, un circuito (con più configurazioni) ambientato in Lousiana, che diverte soprattutto per il layout amorfo e ricco di curve tondeggianti, nonostante l’asfalto sia in sostanza liscio e piatto. A questa è seguito un nuovo kartodromo, per la felicità degli appassionati di kart. È stata implementata anche la richiestissima VR, con la possibilità ora di immergersi letteralmente nel simulatore. Tra le tante novità in arrivo, invece, urge porre l’accento su una UI completamente rinnovata, con una grafica moderna e soprattutto più comprensibile e dalle immagini disponibili, i menù di navigazione sembrano davvero ben ideati e realizzati. Altra novità da tenere d’occhio è la pista di Zandvoort che è stata confermata in via ufficiosa, ma che con tutta probabilità arriverà presto o tardi sul simulatore; così come la meravigliosa McLaren 650S GT3, che farà il debutto all’interno della competizione per sim racers creata dal brand inglese stesso (fate clic qui per ulteriori info) ma che per tutti gli altri comuni mortali sarà, a quanto pare, a pagamento. Infine tra i tanti rumors che, oserei dire, finalmente circondano rFactor2, c’è anche la possibile implementazione in futuro della Formula E, un campionato che sta attirando sempre più attenzioni mediatiche. Insomma, di carne al fuoco ce n’è eccome, i progressi dal 2013 sono stati numerosi ed evidenti, non ci resta che aspettare e vedere come procede lo sviluppo di questo grande simulatore. Ora arriviamo alla parte cruciale dell’articolo, quella più pepata ed emozionante, dove cercherò di mettere in chiaro gli aspetti positivi e negativi di rFactor2; in vista di un gran finale che vedrà faccia a faccia i tre più grandi simulatori dei nostri giorni. Per farlo seguirò anche in questo caso la storia del franchise, perché è giusto che sia messo ben in evidenza il lavoro che è stato fatto ultimamente ma senza dimenticare chi e cosa c’è alla base. Nello scrivere mi rendo conto che è impossibile citare ogni caratteristica, quindi mi limiterò a definire gli aspetti più critici. Partiamo da quello che è il vero fiore all’occhiello del simulatore, partiamo dalla ciliegina che poi andremo a mettere sulla torta... il motore fisico. È l’ISI Engine 2, l’evoluzione del già acclamato ISI Engine di prima generazione; un motore in grado di esaltare decine di aspetti tecnici che altri sim di tutto rispetto non hanno. Questo motore permette, infatti, di realizzare auto precise e realistiche, aggiungendo alla simulazione quei piccoli dettagli che contribuiscono in maniera estrema a renderla ancor più coinvolgente e appunto, realistica. Da qui prende vita il simulatore, perché senza un motore fisico degno di nota, si possono avere tutti i contenuti del mondo, ma non si avrà mai quello che un sim racer cerca: la fedeltà di guida. Per farvi capire quanto sia stato programmato bene basta pensare al fatto che esso è utilizzato da piloti e scuderie professioniste (anche di NASCAR o F1) oppure alla possibilità di inserire auto con sei ruote, di cui quattro sterzanti. La bontà del motore si denota anche dalle innumerevoli possibilità che i modders hanno a disposizione per ricreare in game le loro vetture, dando vita a dei modelli veramente ottimi. Non c’è storia, quindi, il motore fisico è la base da cui parte tutto e le sensazioni che arrivano al volante, nascono da lì e da questo punto di vista rFactor2, non delude. Certo le sensazioni trasmesse sono diverse rispetto ad altri simulatori e forse è anche più complicato venirne a capo, ma il risultato è una fedeltà meravigliosa. Discorso simile vale per il Tyre Model, ossia l’algoritmo che determina le reazioni delle gomme a contatto con l’asfalto e ovviamente anch’esso nulla sarebbe senza un ottimo motore fisico alla base. Solo che il Tyre Model in questione merita di essere citato a parte perché difficilmente nel mondo dei sim su pc si riscontra una complessità, completezza e realizzazione, così ottimali a riguardo. Per fare un esempio semplice ma esaustivo, quest’algoritmo non solo calcola come la gomma si comporta in relazione all’asfalto asciutto, ma lo fa anche con asfalto bagnato, con temperature che vanno dal freddo al gran caldo, con un’accuratezza nel consumo e danneggiamento che non ha rivali. Insomma, è stato ideato bene e ora, grazie al lavoro degli Studio 397, è diventato uno dei cavalli di battaglia del simulatore, così che quando si pensa a rFactor2 venga subito in mente cosa lo contraddistingue e il Tyre Model è proprio una di queste cose. Questo simulatore, che stento a chiamare videogioco, ha però dei difetti che si porta dietro da anni, primo su tutti la mancanza di contenuti. Sì, è vero, ho precedentemente detto che la nuova casa è al lavoro per aumentare il parco auto e piste ma siamo ancora ben lontani dalla quantità di veicoli e soprattutto location originali (cioè pubblicate dalla software house) che la media di simulatori offre. A suo favore ritorna sempre la bontà del modello fisico delle vetture: ci si può fissare su una sola auto per molto tempo e non sentire quasi la mancanza di altro, ma questo succede soprattutto se si è impegnati online. Eppure l’obiettivo alla Studio 397 è quello di attirare sempre più sim racers, anche quelli che vogliono restare offline e guidare decine di auto, godendo delle sensazioni che rFactor2 sa offrire, quindi purtroppo resta questo difetto che può essere decisivo per alcune persone. Inoltre le piste non sono rappresentate con la tecnologia del laser scan, quindi non sono ultra fedeli come in AC o iRacing e questo può essere considerato un piccolo difetto, anche se sono comunque piste ben fatte. A correre incontro e salvare la situazione su questo duplice fronte ci sono le mod; rFactor2 è, infatti, uno dei sim più aperti in assoluto da questo punto di vista. Questo vale da sempre, infatti, se anche nel periodo più buio la gente ha continuato a sfruttare il sim in questione, è stato grazie alle numerose e valide mod in circolazione. E da quando è stato rilasciato su Steam, questa caratteristica ha acquisito un ulteriore vantaggio, cioè l’introduzione del workshop. Si tratta di un sistema che permette ai giocatori di scaricare in assoluta tranquillità e sicurezza e soprattutto comodità, le mod cui si è interessati. Difficile dire quanti siano i lavori di privati disponibili, ma molti, forse la maggior parte, sono davvero buoni e vorrei ricordare che tutti i più importanti gruppi di modding sono presenti. Altri punti positivi che caratterizzano il simulatore ex-ISI sono la presenza di pioggia, ciclo giorno/notte e il comparto online. La prima è una vera chicca, richiestissima da tanti giocatori anche su altri titoli e che qui è implementata bene, non tanto visivamente (poco importa) quanto fisicamente. Stessa cosa vale per la transizione da giorno a notte, ottima soprattutto per simulare gare endurance. Per quanto riguarda l’online invece, il discorso è simile ma non uguale, ad Assetto Corsa: simile perché non siamo ai livelli di iRacing, non ci sono sistemi di ranking così avanzati né campionati ufficiali, ma non del tutto uguale perché ciò che offre l’online di rFactor2 è una generale miglior possibilità di gareggiare senza problemi, sia di tipo tecnico sia dovuti alla presenza di giocatori scorretti. Certamente non è impossibile trovarli anche qui, ma il fatto che sia un simulatore più impegnativo, scoraggia in qualche modo chi tende a rovinare le gare. Lascio per ultimo un aspetto di cui ho già parlato nella prima parte dell’articolo ma che mi serve per agganciarmi a quello che a mio avviso è il vero “pro” di questo simulatore. Quest’aspetto è la grafica, non solo quella di auto e ambiente ma anche quella dell’interfaccia. Come detto in precedenza, la grafica in game ha subìto miglioramenti, non è più vecchia e fastidiosa, ma ancora non è alla pari con gli altri titoli e questo è un punto su cui i nuovi ragazzi stanno lavorando. Idem vale per la UI, che richiede un processo simile perché i menù sono piuttosto grezzi e poco accattivanti, oltre che poco intuitivi. Tuttavia c’è una cosa che deriva da quest’aspetto e cioè l’enorme sviluppo che sta vivendo il simulatore in questi ultimi tempi. Il vero “pro” è che alla Studio 397 stiano lavorando molto per sviluppare al meglio quello che può essere il miglior simulatore, almeno sulla carta. Si tratta di uno sviluppo costante, che riguarda e riguarderà ogni caratteristica del titolo e che permetterà (si spera) di far acquisire finalmente ad rFactor2 una sua vera e propria identità. In conclusione a quest’articolo, quindi, mi preme confermare la bontà di questo progetto; un progetto che se va tutto secondo i piani porterà rFactor2 a divenire un punto di riferimento nel mondo dei sim anche per chi lo vede ancora come un titolo non alla portata di tutti. Va ricordato però che rFactor2 richiede impegno e costanza, bisogna viverlo alla sua maniera, impegnandosi e mettendo in conto di spendere ore e ore, non tanto per divertirsi quanto per diventare un pilota migliore. Solo dopo arrivano le vere soddisfazioni, date dalla fisica eccellente e dalle sensazioni, volante tra le mani. Diciamo che quindi ora come ora rFactor2 è una sorta di investimento per il futuro, ma si deve essere convinti e soprattutto consci che non si è di fronte ad un titolo semplice, frivolo o banale.

    Licenza Formula E in arrivo per rFactor 2?

    Tutti gli appassionati di simracing ricorderanno certamente l'evento eSport targato Formula E della gara da 1 milione di dollari, della quale abbiamo parlato a suo tempo evidenziandone anche i tanti difetti ed errori, che aveva per protagonista rFactor 2 con un mod dedicato alle monoposto elettriche, non proprio di alto livello. A quanto pare Formula E e Studio 397 devono aver capito gli errori ed a quanto sembra arriverà una licenza ufficiale che permetterà di fare le cose per bene a livello software, organizzando probabilmente anche un torneo online parallelo ed ufficiale. Come riportato anche da RaceDepartment e Simracing Paddock ed anche se al momento nessuno ha voluto rilasciare dichiarazioni in merito, il fortissimo sospetto (confermato peraltro dalla non smentita...) nasce dalla proposta di lavoro pubblicata proprio sul sito web della Formula E, alla ricerca di un gaming product manager che dovrà lavorare con lo Studio 397... Role: Gaming Product Manager Location: London Your role Console/Mobile -Work with developer needs (liveries, data) for IP integrations of cars/tracks -Push gaming partners to feature FE integrations through competition/exposure within the game -Sync marketing, PR and comms across FE and gaming partners Sim Racing -Develop rFactor 2 with Studio 397 --Ensure delivery of Studio 397 timeline to release of title --Liaise with internal departments to make sure all liveries, tracks and data is passed on to Studio 397 --Work with Studio 397 to manage the launch and community on Steam -Issue a RFP for broadcast/esports competition for providers --Confirm dates for the proposed 4 Season 4 online races --Work with esports TO/broadcaster for talent, rules and stewarding -Team integration --Build plan for teams to take game software --Help teams develop software integration strategy, with local activations At track -Manage event space consisting of --Moving simulators from DHL drop off point to stage --Networking of machines --Installing monitors --Packing empty lids for DHL to remove --Running server to record times and control cameras for eRace --Coordinate the fan(s) who are participating in the eRace to attend --Manage and train volunteer staff for simulator use --Manage queue system and be responsible for customers in the gaming area --Coordinate drivers participating in eRace with communications team --Coordinate branding with specific driver names on the back on simulators --Manage and run eRace with broadcast partner --Pack down equipment, box monitors, install lids on simulators and place back to DHL pickup point. Desired skills and experience The successful candidate must have experience in delivering gaming events to a high standard. Additionally, candidates should be able to demonstrate: -Knowledge and a passion for video games and eSports -A relatable degree -Experience of managing multiple projects from strategic conception to execution and analysis -Experience of delivering events on time and to budget -Evidence of developing comprehensive marketing and promotional plans to deliver gaming or eSports events -The ability to collaborate effectively across business functions to understand and prioritise varying product requirements -A recognised Project Management qualification (Prince 2, PMI) would be beneficial
  10. Dopo averne anticipato il prossimo arrivo in rFactor 2 con l'ultimo roadmap update di Luglio, il team Studio 397 ci presenta le prime immagini di anteprima, decisamente spettacolari, della prossima McLaren 650S GT3, realizzata con licenza ufficiale McLaren.
  11. Il modding team ASR Formula ha rilasciato per rFactor 2 la versione aggiornata 1.6 della sua Ferrari 412 T2. Fra le novità apportate da questa release, troviamo il pieno supporto alla nuova grafica in DirectX 11 del simulatore targato Studio 397.
  12. 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...

    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!

    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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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

    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.
  23. 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
