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


orc logoI have released a new version with the achievements and records a little bit more integrated into the sim. After the race you will be able to see your achievements and records, you’ll also be able to see your track rank (+/- compared to a benchmark time) and your ORC rank which is +/- compared to all the track benchmark times added together (if you haven’t raced on a track you’ll get a default laptime of 5 minutes).

There is quite a bit of change and therefore potential problems, please report anything strange Smile
I’ve also fixed the crash reporting a bit so I can pinpoint where the problem is if there is a crash more easily.
The stats page has been reorganised a little, but it needs an artist’s touch, so will be cleaned up in the coming months.
Any problems let me know! Smile

– Improved after race stats
– Improved crash reporting
– Improved stats page
– Other small improvements

  • Update V1.03 (28th March 2015)
  • Fixed crash when changing tracks in multiplayer
  • Fixed crash when clicking on stats in multiplayer

Build 427 (15/3/13, Team Member+)
Bug Fixes:
* Fixed the FFB being missing issue
* Fix for Controls screen showing the Edit page whenever you go in there
* Amended handling of puddles in road shader to prevent specular white-out
Render:
* CDynamic Envmap class now uses the new per face mip map level generation DX11 code
* DX11 Texture Class support for per Cube Face mipmap generation support, via per face ShaderResourceViews
* Fix for dynamic emap not getting used on the car
* Inverted facing direction for double sided polygons – corrects lighting be inverted
Shaders:
* Re-enable MotionBlur dither
Base:
* Initial changes switching over to use the BAppSection framework. General tidy-up of the sections code
* Ensure that custom blocklist allocs/free calls match up when using default new/delete
GUI:
* Added WMD requested physics key mapping hooks (brake bias, pit speed limiter, ignition & starter key, adj anti roll bars) – awaiting links to the physics so not yet functional
Audio:
* Increase in volume for AI sounds after reports that AI were difficult to hear. This will be ultimately controllable via sliders in the UI eventually
Trees:
* 3D palm tree instances – self shadowing and transmissive light effect added, textures tweaked in mips

Build 426 (14/3/13, Senior Manager)
Render:
* Shader error message given more detail
* Fix for lods on reflection
* Improved cloud env map settings for performance + setup new face offset for this map.
* Reduce cloud env map resolution – it’s only ever convolved so 128×128 is way more than enough for low to high reflections
* Fix a performance issue with Envmaps when MSAA was enabled (this incorrectly cleared the phase 3 depth) but since the envmap never uses MSAA the depth can be shared (provides a 1.5-2.5% overall speedup)
* Fix clearing of the convolve render-target – the convolve renders to the whole quad and the clear is no longer needed for SLI/XF
* Add ‘face offset’ support to the CDynamicEnvmap class – allows each envmap to have a unique face offset so they aren’t all rendering the same faces each frame which causes peaking loading
Enviroment:
* Added AddKeyLight and RemoveKeyLight methods to EnvironmentManager for main menu usage
* Add cloudenvmap place holder setting for when the viewsettings are re-enabled again
HUD:
* Fix for HUD ‘lite’ not working

* Enable Anisotropic filtering on Foliage (including instanced Foliage) shaders and shadow map generation
Shaders:
* Fixed missing use of specular strength in wheel shader (this resulted in over-bright wheels on shaded side of car)
* Converted light glow billboard shader to be drawn in post blur phase – this fixes a problem with glow billboards sorting incorrectly with headlight glass on certain cars
Tracks:
* Heusden: Tightend up cut tracks further through chicanes 1 and 2. Adjusted the AI line through Chicane 2 so they run wide off the exit onto the grass

* Add DX9/DX11 Renderer helpers for downscaling width and height scaling
* Added new double-sided render contexts in preparation for use in plants etc

Build 420 (6/3/13, Senior Manager)
Environment:
* Updates for Lensflare alpha and position so they update from this timecycle
* Improve the performance of MorphMesh shader parameter setting – the overhead of the Base dynamic arrays was costing approximately between 1 and 9% depending on the level of Cloud (many meshes, with many parameters – the sizes are fixed so dynamic arrays were a poor fit)
* CEnvironmentManager::BlendCubeTextures now uses SSE2 on PC – this reduces the exclusive profile cost from 2.1% to 0.3%
* CEnvironmentManager::FillPixels is now implemented using SSE2 on PC – this reduces the exclusive profile cost from 1.9% to 0.4%

To use..
Start a game as normal and play through a race untill you are happy you have enough to take the screen shots you wish to use.
Press the Start Director button. (At this point I would tick the Director box in the tree so it live updates)
The Start Button will then be removed.
You can now do the following.
1. Set the time in the race you wish to jump to by using changing the value in RaceTime.
2. You can change the rate in which the race plays back by setting RaceRate (default is 0)
3. There is a button to take a TGA screen shot.
4. When in Free Camera you can under Free Camera controls you can change the camera FOV , Positon and Orientation.
Note when you are not in Free Camera the cameras are the track side cameras ,
You can switch to free camera and back by pressing Ctrl+f at anytime, when you do this it will setup the camera to the
values last used from a normal camera.
(note when in TrackSide Cameras you can toggle through the other cameras available by pressing Ctrl+t )
5. You can Tweak Custom Dof Controls. Under DofControls.
Other points to note..
In this mode you can change the time of day , weather conditions and any other visual aspect”
