  1. Dopo aver annunciato ieri l'arrivo gratuito dei nuovi tracciati di Tsukuba Circuit e Charlotte Roval, il team di iRacing ha ufficializzato oggi con il trailer che vedete qui sotto, il prossimo arrivo, nella nuova build di Dicembre del simulatore americano, della ben nota monoposto Dallara di Formula 3. Ci sarà da divertirsi nelle gare online... Confermata inoltre anche per quest'anno, in occasione del Black Friday, la scontistica del 30% strutturata come di seguito:
  2. Tsukuba Circuit and Charlotte Roval Coming To iRacing as FREE Tracks The 2019 Season 1 build, scheduled for December 4th, is planned to include two new tracks for all iRacing members – the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval and Tsukuba Circuit. Both tracks will be part of the iRacing base package which means they are FREE to all members. Tsukuba Circuit, located in Japan, is really two tracks in one. Course 1000 and Course 2000, with multiple variations of both. Course 2000 is the original track and is approximately 2 km long. Course 1000 was added later and is approximately 1 km in length. Both layouts include multiple configurations for a total of seven options for iRacers. This makes the track a perfect fit for our base package as it can be used in multiple series without becoming repetitive. When the Charlotte Roval is made available it will show as an all-new track – the old Charlotte will be renamed to Charlotte Motor Speedway 2016. The entire track surface is new and derived from a fresh laser scan that we collected earlier this year – this includes the infield portion as well as the NASCAR oval. The new pavilion and pit road suites have been added to the artwork and you will also notice the NASCAR turn 2 grandstand has been removed and scenery outside the track has been updated – the Dirt Track at Charlotte and drag strip are visible for example. Initially only the Roval layout will have the updates but we will be updating the oval layout to these standards in phase two. The Roval is a 17-turn, 2.28 mile track that utilizes nearly the entire NASCAR oval, plus a brand new infield section. If the competition on iRacing is anything like the debut NASCAR races, it will be an action-packed facility! The original version of the Charlotte Motors Speedway, and its road course, will remain available and in the base package. There are more surprises planned for the December build so stay tuned for further updates
  3. Coming in the September Build: Atlanta Motor Speedway just got upgraded with 2 new shiny Rallycross configurations.
  4. Il team di iRacing sta rilasciando in queste ora la nuova Build Season 2 2018 del simulatore americano. La nuova release, oltre al consueto bugfixing e migliorie varie (come ad esempio all'interfaccia beta del software o alle animazioni delle mani del pilota), ci mette a disposizione anche numerosi contenuti inediti e gustosi, come l'Audi R18, la Dallara Indycar IR18, la Porsche 919 Hybrid e ben 4 circuiti aggiornati ed inediti. Per tutti i dettagli e commenti visitate questo topic del forum dedicato. This release features a host of new content, updates, features, and fixes for the iRacing experience. We hope you have fun out on the track of your choice! Some highlights include: • Additional functionality and performance enhancements for the iRacing BETA Interface • Custom Car Classes • Extensive Rallycross Race Control updates • Dirt Oval cushion modeling improvements • Complete hand-over-hand animations for all vehicles • Brand new crowd system • Audi R18 • Dallara IR18 • Porsche 919 Hybrid • The Dirt Track at Charlotte • Limaland Motorsports Park • Pocono Raceway track upgrade • Sonoma Raceway (Rallycross)
  5. Il team di iRacing ha annunciato ufficialmente quelle che saranno le novità presenti nella prossima build del simulatore, che sarà disponibile a partire dal 6 Marzo. In primis potremo metterci al volante dei poderosi prototipi di classe LMP1, ovvero Porshe 919 Hybrid ed Audi R18 etron Quatrro, ma non mancherà anche la nuovissima Indycar IR-18 dell'attuale stagione USA. Oltre ad una versione migliorata ed aggiornata della pista di Pocono, saranno ben tre i circuiti dedicati agli appassionati del rallycross, ovvero Limaland Motorsports Park, Dirt Track Charlotte e Sonoma, che vedete già nel promo trailer qui sotto. I thought I would make a post in regard to the new or updated content that will be in the build next week. Some of it you might know about and some you may not. Two new LMP1 cars: The Porshe 919 Hybrid and the Audi R18 etron Quatrro. These two new cars will run in two new Lemans Series, an individual series and a team series with an LMP2 and a GTE Class. iRacing LeMans Series and iRacing Lemans Endurance Series. The Lemans Series will run every two hours with a 12-week schedule. 60-90 minute races as a regular official series. Then, every other week we will run the iRacing Lemans Endurance Series with 2-time slots. Saturday at 7:00GMT and Saturday at 19:00GMT. These are 6-hour sessions, and they are team events. A new Indycar: The Indycar IR-18! We think you will really enjoy this car; our testers definitely are enjoying it. If you purchased the existing DW12 Indy car in the last six months, we would grant you full credit of $11.95. We also will be granting the existing DW12 Indycar free to all members. New Dirt Track: Limaland Motorsports Park! This Quarter-Mile track is located in Northwest Ohio, and we also will include a night version. New Dirt Track at Charlotte! A 4/10 mile Dirt Track located across the street from the Charlotte Motor Speedway and will include a night version. New GRC Circuit: Sonoma A rescanned and revised version of Pocono: If you own the existing Pocono track, you will get this for free. The old Pocono will be granted to every member for free. FYI, we do have a new road course in the works (and many other content additions/updates) that is nearing completion, but it was not ready for this build, unfortunately. We have videos in the works this week for all this content that will be out on the build.
  6. Lo Studio 397, con grande gioia degli appassionati, si scatena per le feste di Natale, rilasciando la nuova Build aggiornata DirectX 11 del suo rFactor 2, e l'inedito Roadmap Update del mese di Dicembre! Il modding team Slow Motion ne approfitta invece per rendere disponibile la nuova release 1.41 del suo ottimo GP3 Series Mod. Tornando ai regali natalizi targati Studio 397, mentre il roadmap update si limita in sostanza a fare il punto della situazione ad oggi, la nuova build rappresenta un notevole passo in avanti per il software: con l'attuale release infatti, le DirectX 11 diventano lo standard per rFactor 2 e vengono implementate diverse migliorie per la grafica, gli effetti di bagnato e pioggia e tanti altri particolari. Per tutti i dettagli e commenti del caso fate riferimento a questo topic del forum. When we look back over the past 12 months we are incredibly proud of what we have achieved, additionally we are grateful of our ever-growing community who continue to support us. Now with Christmas on the way let the sales begin! rFactor 2 is currently half-price, so make sure you get involved if you haven’t already right here http://store.steampowered.com/app/365960/rFactor_2/ If you were interested in the Formula E Energize Pack or the GT3 Power Pack, look no further, we have created a bundle for a limited amount of time – check it out here http://store.steampowered.com/itemstore/365960/detail/2000/
  7. Il team di iRacing ha rilasciato la nuova Build Season 1 2018, che porta con sè numerose migliorie ed interessanti novità per il simulatore americano. Oltre ai consueti bugfix e perfezionamenti del software, troviamo infatti una nuova licenza, il divertente campionato Red Bull Rallycross, i meccanici ai box finalmente animati, le vetture Dirt Midget, Ford Fiesta RS WRC, VW Beetle GRC, l'ovale sterrato di Knoxville e 5 diversi tracciati rallycross. Vi ricordiamo che, in questo periodo natalizio, i nuovi utenti hanno la possibilità di provare iRacing con uno sconto del 50%: a questo link è possibile acquistare 1 mese di utilizzo a soli $6.50, o meglio ancora 3 mesi per $16.50, mentre ad esempio 2 anni costano $99.50 (invece di $199), cioè meno di 3,5 euro al mese. Commenti sul forum. This is a big and exciting release! It is jam packed with brand new cars, a brand new track, entirely new track configurations, brand new racing formats, and a truck-load of our usual fixes and updates. We are very excited, and we hope you are too! Some highlights include: • New License Classes • Heat Racing Mode • Red Bull Global Rallycross Series • Animated Pit Crew • Significant Stockcar Updates • Dirt Midget • Ford Fiesta RS WRC • VW Beetle GRC • Knoxville Raceway • Five Rallycross Track Configurations Full 2018 Season 1 Release details are below.

    iRacing: nuova build e "dirt" video in VR

    Il team di iRacing rilascia oggi la nuova build Season 2 2017. L'update, oltre al consueto numero di bugfix e perfezionamenti, fra le novità e migliorie più interessanti, ci offre il tracciato Bullring del Las Vegas Motor Speedway, dedicato alle vetture Nascar ed importanti upgrades alle gomme delle vetture GT3, compresa la Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. Tutti i dettagli sul forum. The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is coming as a new piece of content, and provides another short track for those who like rough and tumble left turn-only racing. On the features side, the most impactful update for the most amount of people will be the GT tire update. Taking lessons learned from the sweet feeling Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, a lot of the other "tin-top" cars will receive the same treatment in Season 2, making for a more forgiving and realistic feeling experience. Per quanto riguarda invece l'attesa modalità sterrato, spostata in rilascio a fine marzo, ci viene mostrato oggi uno spettacolare video di anteprima con la Sprint Car sul circuito dirt di Williams Grove, utilizzando il visore Oculus VR.

    rFactor 2 Build 1108 disponibile

    Il team Studio 397 ha rilasciato la nuova Build 1108 di rFactor 2, la prima ad essere disponibile esclusivamente tramite Steam, con il passaggio scontato alla piattaforma digitale prolungato fino al 31 gennaio 2017. Proprio Steam ci offre da subito un supporto migliore per il gioco in modalità offline e la correzione di un bug sui driver di alcune schede video Nvidia. L'acquisto annuale di rFactor 2 viene eliminato, perchè si vuole spingere gli appassionati ad utilizzare di più la modalità online, che è stata aggiunta nella versione gratuita del gioco. Studio 397 prosegue comunque lo sviluppo di rFactor 2 con l'attesa grafica DirectX 11 e una nuova interfaccia utente, più semplice, più accattivante e più adatta all’uso con i visori VR. Prosegue anche il lavoro sulle nuove licenze, con la Radical quasi completa ed il nuovo accordo con la General Motors per riprodurre la Corvette C7R del 2016. Si lavora anche sulle piste, a cominciare da Nola Motorsport e sulla modalità multiplayer del gioco. Release of Build 1108 Introduction Finally, it’s time for the first Studio 397 release of rFactor 2! It’s been a few months since the last build was released, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to give you an update on what the team has been busy working on. After taking over development, our first order of business was optimizing and automating the entire build process and setting up a new internal bug tracking system – two improvements that will help speed up public releases of fixes and features. We brought new members into our team to move the project forward in terms of graphics, user interface, infrastructure, content and overall optimizations, which you will start to see in the first quarter of 2017 and beyond. For this first release our focus was on fixing bigger issues such as video driver crashes, optimizing and fixing elements of the workshop and starting work on improving the stock car and oval experience. We have invested a considerable amount of time in developing and testing stock car, specifically stock car rules, since the last public release. With the help of a dedicated group of stock car league admins and stock car specialists on our test team, we identified some of the crucial issues that need to be addressed. We continually seek to improve our stock car and oval experience. For this first release of several upcoming changes we focused on sorting issues under caution and adding more flexible options for server admins. We’ve also taken a close look at oval behaviour optimizations of the AI in single player, especially (but not exclusively) for short ovals. Stock Car The safety car is now set to ‘non-collidable’ by default – testing has shown this can help avoid certain oval-related caution situations in which the safety car has trouble weaving its way to the front of the field. The value can be set to ‘collidable’ in the player.JSON file by editing the following values: "Safety Car Collidable": true. After this update, we recommend server admins backup and remove player.json and multiplayer.json, so that new ones are generated containing all new options and defaults. Several minor adjustments and tweaks to help optimize scoring. Further improvements to the track order of cars leaving the pits under caution. Fixed a bookkeeping error under caution with one lap until restart. Changed AI behaviour to prevent pitting on the last lap of a caution. This helps to avoid messy and disorderly restarts and it makes the AI look a bit smarter too. Better awareness of what to do under caution. Added an extra message to the Low Speed Information pop up: “Please pass the safety car.” This should help you be more aware of where you are with respect to the safety car under a full course caution and should improve sorting overall as drivers no longer have to guess whether to pass the safety car. Changed pit exit behaviour to allow cars to be placed in a large gap rather than behind the whole field, which might be nearly a full track length behind the car exiting on some of the smaller ovals. Fixed pit behaviour: A car entering the pit lane after a race resumes from a caution will no longer be able to continuously lap the field during the next caution. Fixed a possible scoring mix-up when a full course caution was called while the race leader was in the pits. Fixed a bug in which cars starting late from the garage area (those that did not press the Race button in time), after the field had gone ahead, were sometimes wrongly scored at race start. Cars starting late from the garage area now have to wait for the entire field to pass the pit-exit line to be able to join the race and go on track. Added a new single player feature "AI Formation by Position" that when set to “true” in the player.json attempts to line up the AI during yellow flag/formation laps according to your position behind the pace car instead of relative to surrounding cars. This seems to work better on short ovals, whereas the old (default) way might still work better for road courses. Added new options for configuring an oval server, which can be found in the CustomPluginsVariables.json: Added two types of double file which can be configured by editing the value "DoubleFileType" where “0” is off (or single file), “1” will ignore lapped and pitted distinctions, and “2” (the default) is standard double file. Wave-arounds can now be set to on or off for more flexibility by editing the following value: "WaveArounds" “0” is off, “1” is on. Added the ability to configure number of caution laps by editing the following value: "YellowLapsMinimum" Added the ability to configure random number of caution laps editing the following value: "YellowLapsRandom" AI Fixed AI behaviour to prevent them from taking off immediately after what should be their pit stop following their final qualifying lap, which would get them disqualified. Fixed AI behaviour to prevent AI from getting disqualified during qualifying on certain tracks where it is difficult to pit immediately after completing n-1 laps. Physics Temperature and load of the tyre contact patch. Added a new TGM display. While driving, it was possible to pull up a graph showing the contact patch for each tyre that showed the temperature of the tyre at that point of the contact patch (ALT =). The second display now shows the tyre load. Changed TTool filename. TTool, a tool that is used to generate tyres for cars, used to output a file named “QSA” when you ran a real-time batch test. That filename has now been corrected to “realtime”. Fixed an issue where camber angles for tyres reported as zero in real-time telemetry instead of their real angle. Also, this now allows plugins to see the correct angles. Driver Swaps Fixed occasional crash when a wheel gets reattached/repaired during a pit stop at the same time as a driver swap. Graphics Fixed the multiview gizmo that allows you to enter your triple screen configuration. It now saves and remembers asymmetrical monitor configuration parameters. Fixed sporadic nVidia driver crash on certain tracks. The fix, which is only needed if you were experiencing driver crashes and restarts, can be activated by changing the value WorkaroundFlags=1 in the Config.ini with a text editor. Please make sure to delete your shader cache manually (the files in UserData\Log\Shaders) when making this change. Removed the option to disable HDR. Dedicated Server Changed the logic so that the dedicated server properly moves on to the next track in all cases regardless of which sessions are active. User Interface/Launcher Engine mixture settings are part of the setup. Added an Engine Mixture setting to garage so it can be saved as part of a car setup. Updated Launcher icons. Added new user interface background image and splash screen. Fixed Launcher to work correctly in Steam’s offline mode. It will no longer hang while attempting to download pending workshop items in this mode. Updated French language dictionary. Additional Changes We’ve made racing online free for every user of rFactor 2. Fixed results file when VehFile uses escape characters. Removed DRS enabled/disabled messages for tracks without DRS zones. Added +skipmonitor as a command line option, which lets you enter from and exit a race directly to the main menu This post has been promoted to an article

We have invested a considerable amount of time in developing and testing stock car, specifically stock car rules, since the last public release. With the help of a dedicated group of stock car league admins and stock car specialists on our test team, we identified some of the crucial issues that need to be addressed. We continually seek to improve our stock car and oval experience. For this first release of several upcoming changes we focused on sorting issues under caution and adding more flexible options for server admins. We’ve also taken a close look at oval behaviour optimizations of the AI in single player, especially (but not exclusively) for short ovals. Stock Car The safety car is now set to ‘non-collidable’ by default – testing has shown this can help avoid certain oval-related caution situations in which the safety car has trouble weaving its way to the front of the field. The value can be set to ‘collidable’ in the player.JSON file by editing the following values: "Safety Car Collidable": true. After this update, we recommend server admins backup and remove player.json and multiplayer.json, so that new ones are generated containing all new options and defaults. Several minor adjustments and tweaks to help optimize scoring. Further improvements to the track order of cars leaving the pits under caution. Fixed a bookkeeping error under caution with one lap until restart. Changed AI behaviour to prevent pitting on the last lap of a caution. This helps to avoid messy and disorderly restarts and it makes the AI look a bit smarter too. Better awareness of what to do under caution. Added an extra message to the Low Speed Information pop up: “Please pass the safety car.” This should help you be more aware of where you are with respect to the safety car under a full course caution and should improve sorting overall as drivers no longer have to guess whether to pass the safety car. Changed pit exit behaviour to allow cars to be placed in a large gap rather than behind the whole field, which might be nearly a full track length behind the car exiting on some of the smaller ovals. Fixed pit behaviour: A car entering the pit lane after a race resumes from a caution will no longer be able to continuously lap the field during the next caution. Fixed a possible scoring mix-up when a full course caution was called while the race leader was in the pits. Fixed a bug in which cars starting late from the garage area (those that did not press the Race button in time), after the field had gone ahead, were sometimes wrongly scored at race start. Cars starting late from the garage area now have to wait for the entire field to pass the pit-exit line to be able to join the race and go on track. Added a new single player feature "AI Formation by Position" that when set to “true” in the player.json attempts to line up the AI during yellow flag/formation laps according to your position behind the pace car instead of relative to surrounding cars. This seems to work better on short ovals, whereas the old (default) way might still work better for road courses. Added new options for configuring an oval server, which can be found in the CustomPluginsVariables.json: Added two types of double file which can be configured by editing the value "DoubleFileType" where “0” is off (or single file), “1” will ignore lapped and pitted distinctions, and “2” (the default) is standard double file. Wave-arounds can now be set to on or off for more flexibility by editing the following value: "WaveArounds" “0” is off, “1” is on. Added the ability to configure number of caution laps by editing the following value: "YellowLapsMinimum" Added the ability to configure random number of caution laps editing the following value: "YellowLapsRandom" AI Fixed AI behaviour to prevent them from taking off immediately after what should be their pit stop following their final qualifying lap, which would get them disqualified. Fixed AI behaviour to prevent AI from getting disqualified during qualifying on certain tracks where it is difficult to pit immediately after completing n-1 laps. Physics Temperature and load of the tyre contact patch. Added a new TGM display. While driving, it was possible to pull up a graph showing the contact patch for each tyre that showed the temperature of the tyre at that point of the contact patch (ALT =). The second display now shows the tyre load. Changed TTool filename. TTool, a tool that is used to generate tyres for cars, used to output a file named “QSA” when you ran a real-time batch test. That filename has now been corrected to “realtime”. Fixed an issue where camber angles for tyres reported as zero in real-time telemetry instead of their real angle. Also, this now allows plugins to see the correct angles. Driver Swaps Fixed occasional crash when a wheel gets reattached/repaired during a pit stop at the same time as a driver swap. Graphics Fixed the multiview gizmo that allows you to enter your triple screen configuration. It now saves and remembers asymmetrical monitor configuration parameters. Fixed sporadic nVidia driver crash on certain tracks. The fix, which is only needed if you were experiencing driver crashes and restarts, can be activated by changing the value WorkaroundFlags=1 in the Config.ini with a text editor. Please make sure to delete your shader cache manually (the files in UserData\Log\Shaders) when making this change. Removed the option to disable HDR. Dedicated Server Changed the logic so that the dedicated server properly moves on to the next track in all cases regardless of which sessions are active. User Interface/Launcher Engine mixture settings are part of the setup. Added an Engine Mixture setting to garage so it can be saved as part of a car setup. Updated Launcher icons. Added new user interface background image and splash screen. Fixed Launcher to work correctly in Steam’s offline mode. It will no longer hang while attempting to download pending workshop items in this mode. Updated French language dictionary. Additional Changes We’ve made racing online free for every user of rFactor 2. Fixed results file when VehFile uses escape characters. Removed DRS enabled/disabled messages for tracks without DRS zones. Added +skipmonitor as a command line option, which lets you enter from and exit a race directly to the main menu

    rFactor 2 Build 1108 update 1

    Il team Studio 397 ha appena rilasciato un primo update 1 per l'ultima build 1108 del suo rFactor 2. L'aggiornamento si preoccupa di correggere alcuni bugs segnalati dagli utenti, dettagliati a questo link del forum. After releasing build 1108 about a week ago, we got a lot of good feedback from the community and also some bug reports. As always, we very much appreciate your input, even though we cannot always respond to every report individually. We previously explained that we spent some time optimizing our development process, so it should come as no surprise that we’re releasing this update now. This is not the last bugfix we will do, but it is probably the last one we’ll do this year. So from Studio 397, we wish you all a happy new year! The Steam BuildID for this update is 1543400, and you can check your BuildID by opening the Steam Client, going into the library, then right click on rFactor 2 to open the context menu. From there, choose “Properties” and in the window that opens select the tab called “Local Files”. The “Current content BuildID” is mentioned there. Changes Added an empty “Packages” folder to the dedicated server and to rFactor 2 itself. Both distributions were missing this folder, which caused some confusion. Fixed an issue with nonexistent workshop items. If you were subscribed to a workshop item that was subsequently removed or made invisible to you, Steam would continue to report you as “subscribed” to that item. Because the item no longer exists, it would, however, cause our Launcher to hang whilst waiting for it to download, which could never happen, of course. We’ve made the code more robust and tried to detect all such cases, so you should no longer experience this issue.
  22. Our 2017 Season 1 Release Notes have been posted! Notable additions to iRacing include: • World State Triple Buffering that should eliminate some framerate choppiness • Replays can record voice chat • Heat haze effect • Animated support characters • Additional spotter commands • Visor tear-offs • Hand-over-hand steering for some vehicles • Telemetry upgrades • New V8 Supercar tires • New peripheral lighting functionality Full details on the release are below. Welcome to 2017 Season 1! This season release includes a host of updates and balance tweaks. Some highlights include: • World State Triple Buffering that should eliminate some framerate choppiness • Replays can record voice chat • Heat haze effect • Animated support characters • Additional spotter commands • Visor tear-offs • Hand-over-hand steering for some vehicles • Telemetry upgrades • New V8 Supercar tires • New peripheral lighting functionality Full details on the release are below. For an in-depth description of what’s coming to iRacing in the near future, check out this post from Tony Gardner: http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3510448.page Have fun out on the track! CHANGE LOG: Website – Added some more pre-race information for drivers in the Drivers’ Meeting pre-race page. – The Sporting Code URL has been updated. – Fixed an error on the What’s Hot page that mistakenly showed Time Trial Sessions. – Fixed navigation of the Quick Start Guide to allow smooth navigation transitions when viewing it after the initial required time. Simulation – Several settings for an upcoming feature named “Browser Mode” have been added to the “app.ini” file. These additional settings will be fully described when Browser Mode is released, and have no effect at this time. Loading – Track loading has been restructured to reduce the peak memory usage of the Simulator. Race Control – Fixed a bug where cutting a course to take the checkered flag would not properly award the black flag penalty due to scoring being finalized on the car before the cut course penalty was processed. Dynamic Track – The marbles texture has been updated to provide more accurate information on marble density. – Fixed an issue that could allow the server to create track dust when processing client updates. World State Triple Buffering – This upgrade fundamentally alters some aspects of how the Sim’s “realtime”/”BG” thread (the one that keeps the world moving) and the Sim’s “drawing”/”FG” thread (the one that paints the frames) interact with each other. Virtually every UI widget, including the “3D world” widget, uses data from the realtime world to determine what should be drawn. How this data is safely copied for the FG to draw a frame so that it doesn’t get confused should the realtime world “wake up” and start advancing the world is now different. – Previously, the FG would lock-out the BG, make its copy, enable the BG, and then draw its frame. The main problem with this method is that if the BG is in the middle of updating the world when the FG is ready to start a new frame, that “lock-out” must wait until the BG finishes updating the world. Only then can the FG make its copy. But that means the FG gets stalled, preventing it from drawing frames until that world update finishes. The lower-end your machine, or the more complex the world update (mostly the more cars in the session), the longer it takes the BG to finish its world update, and the more likely the FG will get stalled, and the lengthier the stall is likely to be, leading to choppiness in the frame rate. – With the new method, the “copied” state information the FG uses to draw is instead generated by the BG itself when it finishes updating the world. And to keep the BG from overwriting the state the FG is currently using to draw a frame, that copied state information is triple-buffered (in fact, some things use triple-, some use quad-, and some use quintuple-buffering, depending on their needs). The mechanism that the FG and BG use to not step on each other’s toes is now “lockless” – meaning that neither thread “locks-out” the other thread in the normal course of business. DirectX 9 – Our support for the DirectX 9 version of the Simulation has essentially ended. New features, such as the graphical enhancements that are part of dirt track racing, will only be implemented in the DirectX 11 version of the Sim. We will stop shipping a DX9 version of the Sim soon. If you are having issues running the DX11 version of the Sim, please work with our support team at support@iracing.com to resolve them. DirectX 11 – Improved Alt+Enter so that it now attempts to transition back to the original full-screen monitor and original full-screen mode instead of transitioning to a screen mode on the monitor where the window is located when Alt+Enter is used. – Fixed several bugs with Low Res. particles for multi-views. – Fixed an issue where high detail mirrors at night tracks could cause the car reflections in the mirror to render without car paint and with missing polygons. Weather – A heat haze effect has been added to the environment. This effect aims to create the appearance of “heat shimmer”, a visible distortion in the air. This effect is tied into the ambient and track temperatures. This effect can be toggled on or off in Graphics options. Driver – Visor tear-offs have been added to all drivers of vehicles that do not have a windshield. – – The default manual control for performing a visor tear-off is Alt+T. – – Automatic visor tear-offs can be toggled on or off in the Options menu, and will occur when the helmet visor becomes excessively dirty. – A first-pass of the hand-over-hand steering animation has been added to some vehicles. The list of vehicles includes: – – Global Mazda MX-5 Cup – – Legends Ford ’34 Coupe – – McLaren MP4-30 – – NASCAR Camping World Chevrolet Silverado – – NASCAR Camping World Toyota Tundra – – NASCAR Sprint Cup Chevrolet SS – – NASCAR Sprint Cup Ford Fusion – – NASCAR Sprint Cup Toyota Camry – – Street Stock Spotter – Two new options have been added to the “[sPCC]” section of the “app.ini” file that let you control how the default spotter behaves when you also have a live spotter spotting for you: – – reduceVerbosityIfLive=1 ; Reduce the spotter’s chattiness if you also have a live spotter spotting for you. – – muteSpotterIfLive=1 ; Mute your spotter if you also have a live spotter spotting for you. Pit – Pit team support members that are behind the wall are now animated for the player’s car (or focus car). These characters can be seen providing support and managing the team from behind the pit wall. – – The “Pit Object Detail” setting in the Graphics Options menu works as follows for animated support characters: – – – High = Fully animated pit crew characters (currently only pit support crew members) – – – Medium = Static pit crew characters – – – Low = No pit crew characters are displayed, only pit box objects – – – Off = Nothing at all – Many cars have stacks of tires which appear near their pit stall, placed among their other pit apparatus. These stacks were generalized and shared amongst all cars. Now, each car should have an accurate stack of tires which is appropriate to that car. Pace Car – The pace car has transformed from a Ford Mustang FR500S into a Ruf RT 12R. – The official iRacing skin has returned to the pace car. Replay – All voice chat that you send or receive is now saved to the replay. To review it, activate the new “Replay Chat Review” control in the replay controls area on the Session screen. While active, you may continue to use the transmitter on your radio to talk, but the scanner part of your radio becomes disconnected from the radio’s speaker. Instead, the radio’s speaker is connected to the replay, and the voice chat that you hear, along with the notification of who is speaking and on what channel, comes from the replay. However, the scanner is still active, and any received messages continue to be saved to the replay. – – The Radio black box (F10) will also indicate that your scanner has been disconnected from the speaker by flashing the SCANNER title, and graying-out all the radio channel names. Though when watching a saved replay, or watching the replay after the server disconnects you at the end of the session, the F10 black box is not changed in this way. – – Voice chat review mode is automatically set to “ON” when you load a saved replay, and it is automatically set to “OFF” when you join a session. It is automatically set to “OFF” when you get into your car or when you begin “Spotting for team”. – – The Options/Replay settings page in the Sim can be used to adjust which radio channels have their communications saved into the replay. By default, voice chat on all radio channels is saved to the replay. You can select to exclude communications on any custom channels you add to your radio. You can also select to exclude custom channels plus the @TEAM channel. Or you can select to disable saving any voice chat to the replay. Changing this selection takes effect without restarting the simulation, but will not erase any voice chat already saved in the replay, or cause prior messages that were not recorded earlier to be added to the replay. – – – Remember, these settings only affect what gets saved to your own replay. They do not impact whether what you say gets saved to replays by anyone else in the session. Video Capture – The video capture API has been updated to work around an NVidia driver issue. – – This should fix the issue where videos are coming out black using the most recent NVidia drivers. Telemetry – New telemetry variables, “PlayerTrackSurfaceMaterial” and “CarIdxTrackSurfaceMaterial” are now available that indicate what type of surface is under the car (concrete, sand, grass, etc.). Surface materials are defined in new “irsdk_TrkSurf enum.” This is measured relative to the center of the car, just as with the “PlayerTrackSurface enum” that indicates how the surface is scored (race, pit, offtrack, etc.). – New telemetry variables, “TireLF_RumblePitch”, “TireLR_RumblePitch”, “TireRF_RumblePitch”, and “TireRR_RumblePitch” are now available. These represent the pitch in Hz produced by the tire going over a rumble strip, or 0 if the tire is currently not on a rumble strip. – A new telemetry variable, “PushToPass” has been added which reports the state of the Push to Pass button. – A new telemetry variable, “dcMGUKDeployModeToggle” has been added that indicates if the in-car MGU-K deploy mode is set to fixed(0) or adaptive(1). – New 360 Hz telemetry output has been implemented! – – 360 Hz telemetry logging is disabled by default. The option for enabling 360 Hz telemetry logging has been added to the “app.ini” file here: – – – [misc] irsdkLog360Hz=0 ; 0 = 360 Hz logging is disabled, 1 = 360 Hz logging is enabled. – – The XXshockDefl, XXshockVel and SteeringWheelTorque variables will now log out at 360 Hz, if enabled. – – 3 new (memory mapped file) variables have also been added that always log at the rate of 360 Hz, but not to disk. This is for use by motion platforms and base shaker plugins: – – – XXshockDefl_ST = Shock Position – – – XXshockVel_ST = Shock Velocity – – – SteeringWheelTorque_ST = Steering Wheel Torque – – This data is output as a 6 element array, with a new flag variable header indicating that ist should be treated as a subdivision of time. You will need a new version of the ATLAS plugin to properly view the data, however the old plugin, and any older telemetry tool, should continue to read the data just fine. – A new McLaren ATLAS importer version 1.05 is available for download from the member site. This adds some new unit conversion parameters and adds support for properly viewing 360 Hz telemetry. EasyAntiCheat – This build uses an updated version of EasyAntiCheat that should reduce the likelihood of encountering EAC alerts that are caused by internet infrastructure issues. Peripherals – Support has been added for controlling backlights of all Razer devices, Logitech mice, and single color keyboards. Code has been added to indicate the current flag. – Added several new options the [External Displays] section of the “app.ini” file: – – enableLEDFlags=1, Set to 0 to turn off LED backlight flags animations. – – enableLEDShiftLights=1, Set to 0 to turn off LED backlight shift indicator animations. – – enableLEDHotKeys=1, Set to 0 to turn off LED backlight hotkey indicators. – – colorLEDHotKeysByType=1, Set to 0 to set all hotkeys to the same color. – Fixed a bug with keyboard LED shift indicators on Logitech keyboards. CARS Aston Martin DBR9 GT1 – Weight has been increased by 70 kg to bring it closer to the minimum weight under which we understand it competed circa 2008. – Minor adjustments have been made to the aero to bring overall performance back in line with the Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1. – Downforce sensitivities of the rear wing have been modified to ensure the car does not reward minimum rear wing settings at all circuits. – Fuel economy has been slightly increased. – The external engine sound transitions between close and distant sounds for this vehicle have been improved. – Fixed a bug that caused headlight flashing of opponent cars to be invisible. – Season setups have been updated. Audi R8 LMS GT3 – Fuel consumption has been slightly increased for GT3 BoP. BMW Z4 GT3 – Slightly increased aero drag for GT3 BoP. – Fuel consumption has been slightly reduced for GT3 BoP. – Realigned the external mirrors with the appropriate bezel. – Fixed an issue where a driver could not see all of the digits on the blue backlit display. Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1 – Downforce sensitivities of the rear wing has been modified to ensure the car does not reward minimum rear wing settings at all circuits. – Inner headlights are now enabled during the daytime. – Season setups have been updated. Chevrolet Corvette C7 Daytona Prototype – The external engine sound transitions between close and distant sounds for this vehicle have been improved. – The driver’s seatbelt has been fixed so it no longer protrudes out the bottom of the vehicle. Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS – Season setups have been updated. Dallara DW12 – Increased tire wear for oval tracks to increase degradation and prevent running tires for multiple stints. Also, Indy tires are now used at Motegi to improve quality of racing. – A pitboard has been added for this vehicle. The custom paint template has been updated to reflect this. – Season setups have been updated. Ford Falcon FG V8 – Construction and compound changes have been made to the vehicle tires. These changes should produce more realistic grip levels, improve drive-ability around the limit, increase degradation, and improve out lap grip in cold ambient conditions. – Power steering has been increased to help balance this vehicle with similar cars in the Sim. Ford GT GT3 – Season setups have been updated. Ford Mustang FR500S – Driver viewpoint has been adjusted to better suit VR. Holden Commodore VF V8 – Construction and compound changes have been made to the vehicle tires. These changes should produce more realistic grip levels, improve drive-ability around the limit, increase degradation, and improve out lap grip in cold ambient conditions. – Power steering has been increased to help balance this vehicle with similar cars in the Sim. HPD ARX-01c – This vehicle now uses PBR shaders. – The color of the wheel rims for this vehicle can now be changed. – Fixed an issue with the pivot of the right-front wheel. Kia Optima – Mirror quality has been improved. Lotus 79 – This vehicle now uses PBR shaders. – Fixed a corruption issue with the rear rim textures. McLaren MP4-30 – We’ve implemented an alternative MGU-K deployment strategy. The internal combustion engine reaches full output at less than full throttle, and the MGU-K supplements smoothly between full engine output and full throttle at the pedal. The goal is to have smoother power delivery, and the hope is that the cost to efficiency of deployment is minimal. The throttle pedal position at which the engine reaches full output and the MGU-K begins to deploy is configurable by the user, and varies from 67.5% to 90% in 2.5% increments. Note that the old deployment smoothing strategy has been disabled. Mercedes-AMG GT3 – Fixed a minor bug with the definition of the drivetrain components that was causing the portion of the drivetrain between the engine and clutch to have too much rotational inertia. This would cause the drivetrain to spin up the engine under very specific conditions. – – For more information, see: http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/0/3509108.page#10177419 Modified – SK – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR K&N Pro Chevrolet Impala – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Nationwide Chevrolet Impala circa 2011 – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Sprint Cup Chevrolet SS – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Sprint Cup Ford Fusion – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Sprint Cup Toyota Camry – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR XFINITY Chevrolet Camaro – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR XFINITY Ford Mustang – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR XFINITY Toyota Camry – Season setups have been updated. Pontiac Solstice – Fixed an issue where the fuel gauge needle would rotate incorrectly on opponents’ cars. Pro Mazda – Star Mazda has been officially renamed Pro Mazda! – Star Mazda wing decal has been replaced with the Pro Mazda decal. Ruf RT 12R Track – Season setups have been updated. SCCA Spec Racer Ford – This vehicle now uses PBR shaders. Silver Crown – Season setups have been updated. Skip Barber Formula 2000 – This vehicle now uses PBR shaders. Street Stock – Season setups have been updated. Super Late Model – Season setups have been updated. V8 Supercar Ford Falcon circa 2012 – Construction and compound changes have been made to the vehicle tires. These changes should produce more realistic grip levels, improve drive-ability around the limit, increase degradation, and improve out lap grip in cold ambient conditions. – Power steering has been increased to help balance this vehicle with similar cars in the Sim. TRACKS Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans – Additional tweaks to checkpoint placement and added one additional checkpoint. This post has been promoted to an article

These represent the pitch in Hz produced by the tire going over a rumble strip, or 0 if the tire is currently not on a rumble strip. – A new telemetry variable, “PushToPass” has been added which reports the state of the Push to Pass button. – A new telemetry variable, “dcMGUKDeployModeToggle” has been added that indicates if the in-car MGU-K deploy mode is set to fixed(0) or adaptive(1). – New 360 Hz telemetry output has been implemented! – – 360 Hz telemetry logging is disabled by default. The option for enabling 360 Hz telemetry logging has been added to the “app.ini” file here: – – – [misc] irsdkLog360Hz=0 ; 0 = 360 Hz logging is disabled, 1 = 360 Hz logging is enabled. – – The XXshockDefl, XXshockVel and SteeringWheelTorque variables will now log out at 360 Hz, if enabled. – – 3 new (memory mapped file) variables have also been added that always log at the rate of 360 Hz, but not to disk. This is for use by motion platforms and base shaker plugins: – – – XXshockDefl_ST = Shock Position – – – XXshockVel_ST = Shock Velocity – – – SteeringWheelTorque_ST = Steering Wheel Torque – – This data is output as a 6 element array, with a new flag variable header indicating that ist should be treated as a subdivision of time. You will need a new version of the ATLAS plugin to properly view the data, however the old plugin, and any older telemetry tool, should continue to read the data just fine. – A new McLaren ATLAS importer version 1.05 is available for download from the member site. This adds some new unit conversion parameters and adds support for properly viewing 360 Hz telemetry. EasyAntiCheat – This build uses an updated version of EasyAntiCheat that should reduce the likelihood of encountering EAC alerts that are caused by internet infrastructure issues. Peripherals – Support has been added for controlling backlights of all Razer devices, Logitech mice, and single color keyboards. Code has been added to indicate the current flag. – Added several new options the [External Displays] section of the “app.ini” file: – – enableLEDFlags=1, Set to 0 to turn off LED backlight flags animations. – – enableLEDShiftLights=1, Set to 0 to turn off LED backlight shift indicator animations. – – enableLEDHotKeys=1, Set to 0 to turn off LED backlight hotkey indicators. – – colorLEDHotKeysByType=1, Set to 0 to set all hotkeys to the same color. – Fixed a bug with keyboard LED shift indicators on Logitech keyboards. CARS Aston Martin DBR9 GT1 – Weight has been increased by 70 kg to bring it closer to the minimum weight under which we understand it competed circa 2008. – Minor adjustments have been made to the aero to bring overall performance back in line with the Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1. – Downforce sensitivities of the rear wing have been modified to ensure the car does not reward minimum rear wing settings at all circuits. – Fuel economy has been slightly increased. – The external engine sound transitions between close and distant sounds for this vehicle have been improved. – Fixed a bug that caused headlight flashing of opponent cars to be invisible. – Season setups have been updated. Audi R8 LMS GT3 – Fuel consumption has been slightly increased for GT3 BoP. BMW Z4 GT3 – Slightly increased aero drag for GT3 BoP. – Fuel consumption has been slightly reduced for GT3 BoP. – Realigned the external mirrors with the appropriate bezel. – Fixed an issue where a driver could not see all of the digits on the blue backlit display. Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1 – Downforce sensitivities of the rear wing has been modified to ensure the car does not reward minimum rear wing settings at all circuits. – Inner headlights are now enabled during the daytime. – Season setups have been updated. Chevrolet Corvette C7 Daytona Prototype – The external engine sound transitions between close and distant sounds for this vehicle have been improved. – The driver’s seatbelt has been fixed so it no longer protrudes out the bottom of the vehicle. Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS – Season setups have been updated. Dallara DW12 – Increased tire wear for oval tracks to increase degradation and prevent running tires for multiple stints. Also, Indy tires are now used at Motegi to improve quality of racing. – A pitboard has been added for this vehicle. The custom paint template has been updated to reflect this. – Season setups have been updated. Ford Falcon FG V8 – Construction and compound changes have been made to the vehicle tires. These changes should produce more realistic grip levels, improve drive-ability around the limit, increase degradation, and improve out lap grip in cold ambient conditions. – Power steering has been increased to help balance this vehicle with similar cars in the Sim. Ford GT GT3 – Season setups have been updated. Ford Mustang FR500S – Driver viewpoint has been adjusted to better suit VR. Holden Commodore VF V8 – Construction and compound changes have been made to the vehicle tires. These changes should produce more realistic grip levels, improve drive-ability around the limit, increase degradation, and improve out lap grip in cold ambient conditions. – Power steering has been increased to help balance this vehicle with similar cars in the Sim. HPD ARX-01c – This vehicle now uses PBR shaders. – The color of the wheel rims for this vehicle can now be changed. – Fixed an issue with the pivot of the right-front wheel. Kia Optima – Mirror quality has been improved. Lotus 79 – This vehicle now uses PBR shaders. – Fixed a corruption issue with the rear rim textures. McLaren MP4-30 – We’ve implemented an alternative MGU-K deployment strategy. The internal combustion engine reaches full output at less than full throttle, and the MGU-K supplements smoothly between full engine output and full throttle at the pedal. The goal is to have smoother power delivery, and the hope is that the cost to efficiency of deployment is minimal. The throttle pedal position at which the engine reaches full output and the MGU-K begins to deploy is configurable by the user, and varies from 67.5% to 90% in 2.5% increments. Note that the old deployment smoothing strategy has been disabled. Mercedes-AMG GT3 – Fixed a minor bug with the definition of the drivetrain components that was causing the portion of the drivetrain between the engine and clutch to have too much rotational inertia. This would cause the drivetrain to spin up the engine under very specific conditions. – – For more information, see: http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/0/3509108.page#10177419 Modified – SK – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR K&N Pro Chevrolet Impala – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Nationwide Chevrolet Impala circa 2011 – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Sprint Cup Chevrolet SS – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Sprint Cup Ford Fusion – Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Sprint Cup Toyota Camry – Season setups have been updated.

    iRacing: parliamo di novità 2017...

    Dirt: As you probably are aware we are very excited about “dirt” and have heard the same from so many of you. Major pieces of it have been finished for months. There are so many details, facets and challenges to this new form of racing for us graphically and physically. We had many new development challenges to tackle and many new and unique features to develop. I think you will be very impressed with all the work and detail put into this when you get a chance to see it and drive it. However, a few smaller things are still lingering and we want to nail this down to our satisfaction. The small things can make a big difference. We would not expect to release it by year end either with the year winding down and holidays etc. The good news is we feel we are close and are still optimistic to release before the March build. We would do a “mid-season” release if the feature/Dirt was ready. As far as content we have Eldora, Williams Grove and a dirt version of USA Speedway about done and more tracks in the works already. We have 305, 358 and 410 versions of a Dirt Super Late Model. We have a wingless dirt 410 sprint car. We have a winged Sprint Car including 305, 360 and 410 versions. We are putting the cars through our CFD “wind tunnel” to get better aero data, especially for the Winged Sprint car. We also will have dirt versions of our NASCAR truck and a dirt version of the legends car out of the gate. Much more coming and already in the works including global rally cross. Thanks for your patience. It is heart-breaking not to release some of it for year-end with all the work we have put in and being so close but it is the right thing to do. Time-Attack: This new hot-lapping competition/feature we think is going to be a great fun and will be something that almost everyone from rookies/time constrained people to veteran sim-racers will really enjoy. We are also close on this new feature and also would release at a point in time, not necessarily needing to wait until a season end build. We will be doing a video about it soon to give you a better idea of it. Other: We are also still working on many other things discussed previously like the new damage model, new in-sim UI, web interface, improved and new sounds including working on utilizing XAudio 2, animation and graphics, new forums, physics, incredible content and working on many other things not yet discussed!
  25. Sul forum ufficiale di iRacing, Tony Gardner in persona conferma per il 6 dicembre l'arrivo della nuova build del simulatore americano. Gardner ci parla anche delle numerose novità che arriveranno in iRacing nel corso del 2017, come la modalità dirt (lo sterrato), la funzionalità time attack e molto altro ancora. We are excited about the build next week! You will see multiple enhancements and improvements to the simulation and overall service. Right now the plan is to do the usual quarterly software update on December 6th at about 8:00 AM EST. However I wanted to discuss just a few things that are NOT going to be in build next week and provide a brief update. You will see soon enough what will be in the build next week!
