The Campaign can be purchased in the DCS e-shop for


GSC-E

This is a significant milestone build for us as it will be the first with executables compiled in-house – there are some substantial changes, so to ensure you do not encounter problems after updating It´s fundamental you take note of the information below.

IMPORTANT!!

  • Current users MUST create a fresh player profile (delete the old one from \USERDATA) otherwise the game won´t launch;
  • New users MUST note that GSC Config may not launch directly from Steam, which will result in a Crashdump – run it from game install folder:\SteamApps\common\Stock Car Extreme (will be fixed in a following update).
  • After creating a fresh profile, make sure to double-check your driving aids & controller speed sensitivity to make sure they match what you had before;
  • If you get a crash on startup, make sure you have installed the DX9.0C that comes with the game (by running \Support\DirectX\Install\DXSETUP.exe);
  • If you do the above and still crashes, or if you get a black screen when escaping from a session, delete d3d9.dll from the game root folder;
  • If you get a blank screen after hitting escape from the track, delete d3d9.dll from the game root folder;
  • Make sure coreshaders.mas is the only file in Gamedata\Shared folder;
  • Delete dinput8.dll, FanatecLEDs.dll from root folder & G27LEDs.dll from Plugins folder (if you have them);
  • Since there are several new parameters for both cars and tracks, it is possible that some MODs will not work 100% and will need to be updated to use the new features (pleaseconsult this thread to learn you may update your mod);

For the new STEERING ROTATION feature:

All Logitech & Thrustmaster wheels with adjustable rotation should be working with this feature. Fanatec wheels should too, except for the V2 wheelbase which is still in development.
If you have any of the supported wheels, it is recommended you set Enable Custom Steer Rotation to NO from OPTIONS > CONTROLS, and let the game customize the appropriate rotation range for each car:
Wheel_Rotation.jpg

If Enable Custom Steer Rotation is set to NO, the rotation range below it has no effect so you may ignore it.

Some cars will also allow some range for adjusting rotation from the garage menu – ex. F-Extreme is defaulted to 360º, but you can increase that 450º from the garage. Others (like the Lancers) are fixed at 900º.

Further known issues with this version (to be addressed in the next release):

  • GSC Dedicated is unstable when running from Steam;
  • DRS activation & tire compound selection are not stored in replays;
  • No compound restriction per track in F-Extreme & F-Reiza;

These issues and the ones aforementioned will be fixed ASAP.

  • Added “Opponents Filter” option to quick race menu (for multiclass racing)
  • Replaced AI aggression UI slider with a set of presets low-to-max (max being 50% agression in old currency to prevent AI misbehavior in overly agressive settings);

SpinTires  logo

Hi everyone,

Today we are bringing you the long awaited update… a lot of time has been spent on killing all of the major bugs over the last 10 builds, but please be aware that there may be some very minor bugs still existing in this build. We hope that you will be understanding with the next bit of information: –

Workshop is ready, with some finishing off to do – however, the remaining programming that needs to be done could not be completed until this build was stable. This is where we had to make a decision, either 1) release the update as it stands, with workshop and the editors to follow over the coming weeks, or 2) break the news to you that you would not be receiving the update that is ready to be released, until workshop and the editors were ready to go.

After much consideration, we have made the decision to release this stable iteration of the update, minus full workshop implementation and the editors due to them being incomplete at this time.

However, there is a silver lining to every cloud. There are five new trucks and some modified original trucks available, that are the first official content available via workshop by Oovee. Of course, it is one of the most stable and tested builds we have released.

We have the following new trucks, that are available via workshop (pictured below):

  • B-66
  • B-131
  • C-4310
  • D-537
  • K-700

Attached File  Screenshot1.jpg   113.59KB   14 downloadsAttached File  screenshot2.jpg   122.5KB   10 downloadsAttached File  screenshot3.jpg   121.56KB   9 downloads

Please note that mods were previously tolerated despite the contradiction of our EULA, however, it is important to note that these mods are a form of hacking and we have not officially supported mods up until this point. Workshop is our way of giving our player base the opportunity to upload and download mods directly from one central hub – although up until this point, they have been hosted on this forum and on a number of other sites.

It is important to note that all is not lost – we will endeavour to find a way to support both Workshop and non-Workshop modding, by what means we see fit and effective.

For those modders that have created trucks, the truck/mod editor will be available soon and will allow the user to create a mod directly in the editor and export to Steam Workshop.

For those modders that have created maps, the map editor will be available soon and will entail a conversion of the map to the most up to date version in order to be playable.

Please note, that if you read the Original Post for this update you will see that what we need for mod support to work in its entirety is not far behind our reach. Please remain patient and more details will be confirmed in due course.

Now, we will show you the long changelog for your viewing.

Multiplayer
– Added full name, total time, finish status and lap information such as time, position and pit stop status to race result logs.
– Fixed a crash that occurred to everyone in the race if one of the participants had a name longer than 32 characters which was exceeding the buffer and causing issues in replay creation.

SO, ANOTHER MULTIPLAYER FPS THAT CLAIMS TO BE “REAL”, WHAT’S THE DEAL?

Frag away the conventional FPS realism; realism has an older brother and he will not spoon feed anything. Experience a shooter unlike any other, a perfect ground blend of eye opening realism and raw FPS entertainment. Gone are the days of auto-aim, or instantaneous bullet travel. Your rifle better be zeroed in, and that you have an exact understanding of your firearm: your barrel twist, the wind conditions and definitely how far your target is. Understand that you are not a click away from reloading your weapon, you will make the habit of checking your chamber before you reload. You will be disciplined to not shoot at everything that moves. You will be trained to work with your CO’s and fellow squad mates. Accept that your rifle is merely a tool, and that the operator is responsible for its effectiveness. Operate the short distance radio to maintain coms between the squad leaders and your squad members. Read and mark friendly and enemy positions on your map. Do not forget to supply your outposts with supplies, water and ammunition, to conserve combat power.

Work against the push and pull in the tide of war, tactical retreats and strategical attacks. Experience the perfect zero in and the solid pull of a trigger, Terapoly brings you D.U.S.T. the unforgiving realism.

“Hello everyone!

Today we have some good news: version 1.104 is ready for beta testing, it includes a German fighter Bf 109 E-7 for Battle of Moscow project, summer and autumn Stalingrad maps and the new campaign Battle of Stalingrad: part 1.

We worked on some additional optimizations of the physics code and plan to increase the maximum simultaneous players cap on one multiplayer server to 84 persons. In addition, while making physics changes for summer season we improved the ground contact and near ground aerodynamics modeling and added more surface types, I’ll tell you about this in detail in our next update.

To make your waiting for 1.104 less boresome, today we’re presenting new screenshots of the new campaign, new fighter and a little surprise. In addition to screenshots there are two videos; one of them shows aerobatics abilities of upcoming Bf 109 E-7 (it may be interesting to compare its capabilities with Bf 109 F-4, which aerobatics video we published earlier); the second video is a little surprise too.”

“Всем привет!

Сегодня день хороших новостей: версия 1.104, включающая в себя новый немецкий истребитель проекта “Битва за Москву”, летнюю и осеннюю карты Сталинграда и новую кампанию “Битва за Сталинград: часть 1”, выходит на этап бета-тестирования.

Благодаря дополнительным оптимизациям, в версии 1.104 планируется увеличить максимальное количество участников многопользовательского боя до 84 человек. В рамках работы по добавлению летнего и осеннего сезона мы расширили и улучшили раздел физики самолета, связанный с взаимодействиями с разными типами поверхности, но об этом я расскажу вам поподробнее в следующий раз.

Ну а что бы не заставлять вас скучать в ожидании обновления 1.104, сегодня мы покажем ряд скриншотов новой летне-осенней кампании и нового самолета, а также вы увидите небольшой сюрприз. Кроме скриншотов вы можете посмотреть два видеоролика, один из которых показывает возможности пилотажа на истребителе Bf 109 E-7, который будет добавлен в новой версии (кстати, сравните с уже опубликованным видеороликом пилотажа на более позднем варианте Bf 109 F-4), ну а второй тоже сюрприз.:


Capture

We’ve put together some more information about this release, and what it means for you, in the form of a short Q&A:

If I already own rF2, can I move over to the Steam version for free?
Yes you can migrate over to the Steam version at no extra cost. Once you do this, your original non-Steam product is no longer active.

How will Steam work with Standard/Lifetime?
For those who do not buy or have Lifetime, you will need to buy online access through Steam. We will not offer Lifetime upgrades (from ‘Offline’) on Steam. We are also planning to stop doing Standard to Lifetime upgrades for the non-Steam version soon.

rF2 on Steam will offer three things:
– rF2 Offline
– 1 Year Online for rF2 (adds multiplayer to rF2 Offline)
– rF2 Lifetime (has multiplayer included)

Will my online access be carried over from non-Steam to Steam?
No, not for the standard version of rF2. We are not able to move over remaining online access, so users may want to wait until that expires before migrating. Lifetime access is carried over to Steam.

Why Steam? Why now? What Steam features are implemented in rF2?
We have done a lot of work to support Steam, including implementation of Steam Workshop for additional content. Here is a more comprehensive list:

– automatic updates of rFactor and mods
– support for Steam Workshop as the single source for all ISI and third party mods
– workshop items will automatically stay up to date
– leagues can use the workshop to create a convenient installation for participants
– automatic backup of car setups in the Steam cloud
– integration with the Steam matchmaker for finding servers
– support for the Steam friends system to join a friend’s game
– screenshots can be quickly shared on Steam
– broadcast options to allow (your friends or anybody) to watch you play
– streaming support that allow you to run rFactor 2 on one system but stream the graphics to another
– Steam Music Player support to listen to your favourite songs in your car and control the stereo
– statistics and achievements that you can use to compare your performance against others

Some may consider it a better platform for rFactor 2 due to the Steam integration, but we’re not planning on any Steam exclusive features (apart from those that require Steam or are enabled by using it, as can be seen above).

Will non-Steam and Steam rF2 be cross compatible?
Our goal is that MP races are cross compatible, yes.

Will a non-Steam version continue to be sold?
We will continue to sell a non-steam version for an undefined period. We may look to wind down new sales on the non-Steam version, but much like rF1, this is probably a long-term transition, if it happens at all.

X10 Berlin – The express bus between City West and Brandenburg is the first add-on for “OMSI 2” created by the developers of Halycon. The modern Berlin out of the perspective of a bus driver is a captivating experience. It`s a challenge to take on the daily schedule without accidents.

The routing offers a huge variety. Starting in Berlin’s city centre, the player will experience the busy bus traffic at “Bahnhof Zoo” and the sights of Tauentzienstraße. Drive your way through the traffic of the shopping streets before taking the route through the extensive residential area along the Grunewald forest. Pass the middle-class Zehlendorf up to the city boundary which has marked an impassable obstacle until 1989. After one or two jams, you will reach Teltow, a suburb of Berlin with a long history.

The transport services of Berlin used to call the line X10 “Der Zehlendorfer Großstadt-Express” (The Zehlendorf Metropolitan Express), and yet it is only one of many lines you can drive in the large network of streets in this add-on!

Included is the MAN double-decker bus, adding even more realism and enhancing the fleet of OMSI with a modern vehicle. This particular bus characterises the cityscape of Berlin.

Features

  • Route with ca. 60 kilometres and over 120 bus stations
  • 18 drivable bus lines, including the complete lines X10, 115, 625, 626
  • Diverse streets with 85 traffic lights
  • Over 100 new 3D objects
  • Detailed, drivable MAN double-decker DL05
  • Bus with many original sounds and different repaints
  • AI trains and new AI vehicles
  • Professionally recorded station announcements

Assetto Corsa version 1.3 introduces some great improvements to the core game engine and new features to the physics engine.

The game now supports native 64-bit code. The physics engine has been reworked and is now completely multithreaded. As a result, the driving precision is augmented, the accuracy has further improved and the physics solver has enough horsepower to completely resolve any difficult calculations at any speed, achieving butter-smooth Force Feedback and a complete elimination of signal noise and vibrations.

Assetto Corsa’s top-class physics engine has been constantly evolving and improving. The AC physics code already includes various industry-first features, such as advanced active aerodynamics, four-wheel drive simulation with active differentials, realistic driving assists systems, unique hybrid engines simulation and advanced tyre-wear features, such as blistering, graining and flat spots.

With version 1.3 we now present you a completely reworked tyre model that includes new features in connection with tyre-speed sensitivity, combined grip, slip angles and ratios, load sensitivity, rolling resistance and most importantly, separated heating for surface and core temperatures. As a result, driving in Assetto Corsa is now more realistic than ever. The driving experience is more natural while at the same time also more challenging at the limit. Real-life features such as driving carefully in the first two laps to heat the tyres or taking it easy to cool down overheated tyres after a spin, the handling of the car changing from turn to turn depending on your driving style or as a result of driver errors and choosing the correct tyre compound depending on the track and car combination and also your driving style will now become part of your daily driving experience in Assetto Corsa.

We did not stop at the tyres though. We have improved the ABS system and now depending on the car, Assetto Corsa supports different generations of ABS systems using 1 to 4 channels. We have enabled active differentials also for RWD cars, such as the brand new BMW M4, which is part of the Dream Pack 2 DLC. We also have improved the height sensitivity of front splitters and diffusers making their influence more complex from a setup engineering point of view and more demanding from the aspect of the driver, creating an overall more satisfactory experience for everyone.

Do not just drive by memory some binary data values that resemble cars on your screen. Drive cars that are “alive”, constantly changing their behaviour from turn to turn as a response to your personal driving style.
