“We’re tremendously excited to be partnering with Mercedes-Benz,”said Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer at iRacing.com.  “iRacing and Mercedes-Benz actually had signed the licensing agreement awhile back, but we were waiting until we could announce the Mercedes-AMG GT3 was in production before we made our partnership public.   We’re thrilled that we’ll be adding the Mercedes-AMG GT3 to a lineup that is already brimming with world-class GT3 cars.”

lunar flight

I know its a been a while since I posted anything but I do have some news. I’ve recently been (slowly) porting Lunar Flight to be a DX11 targeted application using Unity 5. One of the reasons for moving to DX11 is that Oculus is dropping support for DX9. The good thing is that in the near future Lunar Flight will run faster and look better than it has ever done thanks to Unity’s new lighting system and DX12 on the horizon. This is in preparation for the consumer Oculus hardware and Valves Vive HMD.

Once the inital port is complete I want to look into adding some new content including some new Mission Types, a new DLC Planet/Moon and a make over of the UI and LM/Cockpit model which I want to include an animated Flight Suit and Throttle and Joystick in the cockpit.



orc logoMostly bug fixes and tweaks with a couple of new features

– Seat position can be changed and saved in-game press F2 to toggle
– Head movement can be tweaked in the misc. options (can be turned off)
– Potential Fix for people having to run it as admin – please let me know if this has fixed the problem
– World record / PB has been added to the race menu
– Fix, all the race awards were being awarded to the same driver
– Mouse controls have been fixed (crash when assigning buttons + not proper range when assigning steering without a restart) – thanks engineerwr!
– Fixed potential crash when changing tracks
– Added tool tips for Track Rank and ORC Rank shown after the race
– Fix for pressing escape on the login screen going to a loading screen (with no escape!)
– Added driver info (if possible) to the crash report
– Added version on the Main Screen
– Moved general options to the end of the list
– Fixed auto gears tooltip

The new version is available at the normal place: –
http://siroccoracing.com/indev/OrcSetup.exe

It should install over 1.0.7 ok, but if you have an older version you might want to clear out your Documents/OnlineRacingChampionship folder before running 1.0.8
Let me know if there are any problems – thanks again for helping test ORC!

All the best,
Ash
