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.
  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

Respecting what is now a very long tradition at Kunos Simulazioni, we are glad to introduce as part of our latest DLC a significant update to the overall build of Assetto Corsa. Reaching version 1.9, we welcome another piece of free bonus content, the brand new and recently unveiled Porsche Panamera G2 Turbo, the latest luxury saloon model manufactured by Porsche. As you can see it in the complete changelog below, the update continues the process of bringing general improvements to the core game in all areas, incorporating the precious feedback and suggestions of a community that is becoming larger day after day. One of the most relevant upgrades of this build involves the audio environment, taking advantage of the updating of FMod libraries:

the development team has reworked FMod interaction within the game, optimizing memory and CPU usage and improving the entire sfx engine, resulting in a much better sound environment and immersion.

If you wish to learn more about it, please visit the following URL: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/fmod-official-project-v1-9.37827/

In addition to the plethora of audio updates, other improvements extend to introducing the official Sparco licence with brand new driver suit and glove textures and a reworked texture assignment system, race ending, live Time Table leaderboard in the pits and other additions to the Lap Time board, splits and Anti-Wrecker protection in Multiplayer mode, updating all GT3 cars to tyre model 10, AI improvements and numerous other improvements across the entire game engine, including graphics as well as physics.

Assetto Corsa 1.9 welcomes the first of the three free bonus Porsche cars that will be released within 2016, introducing the Porsche Panamera Turbo, a car that with Porsche test and development driver Lars Kern at the wheel completed a lap around the 20.832-kilometre long Nürburgring Nordschleife in only seven minutes and 39 seconds. The new Porsche Panamera reconciles two contrasting characteristics more than ever before: the performance of a genuine sports car and the comfort of a luxury saloon. It is a Gran Turismo that has been rethought and realigned. The second generation of the Panamera is advancing to become a performance icon of the luxury class.

We are also glad to announce that the historic version of the Silverstone circuit is finally available as free bonus content for all Assetto Corsa users, a remarkable addition that will please all fans of historic content already available in Assetto Corsa. The classic Silverstone is a circuit that perfectly matches some of the new legendary Porsche cars included in the Porsche Pack Vol.1. The 1967 version of the track was used between 1952 and 1974, with the overall layout kept largely unaltered for nearly 38 years. This piece of motorsport history hosted fierce competition between racing heroes such as Graham Hill, Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Jackie Ickx.

Assetto Corsa 1.9 is available on PC Steam today, and on PS4 and XBox One in November. Please read the changelog to learn more about the overall list of updates.

We kindly inform those who might be interested in purchasing the Season Pass that it is available for purchase.

Those who purchase the Season Pass will receive 3 add-on packs (7 cars each) for a single discounted price. The packs include a total of 21 Porsche unique car models, featuring all of the new 2016 Porsche line-up from both the car maker’s production and legendary motorsport departments.

About This Game

Rogue System’s goal is to bring the classic space-combat sims into the modern era of gaming at a never-before-attempted level of control. It blends the capabilities and usability of modern games with the detail and fidelity of hardcore combat flight-sims. With a simulated science fiction setting, richly deep spaceship management, and intense combat, Rogue System satisfies both the “survey” and “study” sim enthusiast.

Rogue System’s Core Module (CM) will be a complete campaign-driven sim on its own. It utilizes both dynamic as well as scripted missions to allow for greater replay-ability while telling an intriguing story.

Finally, Rogue System is fully moddable, allowing both DCI as well as the sim’s community to add new ships, missions, and even campaigns.

Later, Extension Modules (EM) will add even more gameplay.

ISI is happy to release Build 1080! This build has a decent number of fixes and tweaks to the AI, realroad, skin sharing, graphics, controllers, and much more.

The demo content has also been changed; Now featuring the Formula Renault 3.5, 1974 Howston Dissenter and Toban Raceway Park.

Demo Installer – 1GB
Lite Installer – 340MB
SDK Installer – 347MB

Usage Notes:

On first loading for any track after updating, shaders will be rebuilt. Expect this to take anywhere between 1-4 minutes, depending on your system specifications.

The Logitech G920 has new firmware that fixes an issue with the Force Feedback. However, because they are not yet selling units with the new firmware, and most users will not be updated yet, we have implemented a hacky solution that we will remove probably with a future build (when we feel more will have updated). If you have updated your firmware, you can disable the hack if you want to, by editing your controller file save and switching the G920_workaround flag to false, and because they changed their names for the inputs, you’ll have to bind your pedals.

Build Notes:

FEATURES:
————-
Ability to save car class/track/RFM specific AI parameters. (Gizmos on track & car selection page. Global values still editable from session options.)
Added Low Speed Information display position gizmo.
Added AI DraftStickiness_multiplier to RCD files so can tweak that functionality on a car by car basis (only affects superspeedways)
Added average water depth to internals plugin data.
Provided a better way in the HDV file to specify AI damper multipliers: AIDamping=(,,,)
Made the prefix for warning LED material names configurable in the *cockpit.ini file. Syntax (with default legacy prefix) is: WarningLED=LED
User skin directory will now spill over to multiple lines if needed rather that off screen
Default gamepad controllers now set various driving aids for an easier experience.
Created an Un-Disqualify button for admins to use on the multiplayer vote page.
Reason for penalty (if any) is now given in result files and log files.
Significantly reduced the effect of Real Road Time Scale on how the track gets wet from rain and dried by vehicles. This makes it work more realistically even when the timescale is set to extreme values like Static or 15x.
Added a separate thread to issue FFB commands which is needed for some drivers that block. This functionality improves upon and therefore replaces the old Controller.JSON value “Skip updates”, but can also be disabled by setting the new Controller.JSON value “Use thread” to false.
Moved in-game server list to Launcher (Steam version only).
New controller presets for SimXperience AccuForce, Thrustmaster TMX, and Logitech Rumble F310/F510/F710 gamepads.

FIXES:
————-
Fix for skin transfers when using +connect commandline parameters.
Fixed static camera orientation not saving changes in Mod Mode
Likely fix for occasional dedicated server crash during race rejoin.
Fixed occasional race rejoin bug where only 63 laps were restored when it should have been more.
Fixed bug where track & vehicle selector didn’t register changes when existing page immediately after closing a category branch.
Stock car plugin has improved handling of order shuffling due to spun cars. A new variable was added to the CustomPluginVariables.JSON for this plugin called “AdjustUntilYellowFlagState” which controls how long the order may be adjusted due to spinning (values are the same as mYellowFlagState in InternalsPlugin.hpp).
Fixed several potential UI crashes when switching between multiple video adapters.
Corrected issue where grass skids sometimes did not appear.

GRAPHICS:
————-
Reverted back to more analytical headlight model.
Fixed soft particle blending and updated general particle parameters.
Fixed particle exclusion zones sometimes becoming disabled.
Improved particle lighting/shadowing.
Improved sun occluder.
Static reflection mappers now updated properly between sessions.
Minor adjustments to sky turbidity and some cloud albedos.
Sim will now default to HDR mode and can only be run in LDR mode by manually editing GFXSafeMode to 0 and clearing shader cache.

MODDING / PUBLIC DEV:
———————
Camera activation zones can be moved in the camera editor now.
Added another track learning method. How to use: turn off fuel, tire wear, & mech failures and enter a practice session with 1 ai. Once in monitor, select that ai and type “ai learn” in the chat back…..he’ll then go take a bunch of laps & you can watch him try to get better at driving his line (which will show up in the replay window). When (if) you are satisfied that he’s better following the line you can type “ai save” & he’ll save that knowledge in the playerfile/settings directory for future use (or it can then be packed up in an appropriate car or track component and loaded automatically from there).
TTool: optimized the reinitialization step between custom realtime tests, and also allowed skipping reinitialization completely by adding Reinitialize=0 to any appropriate [CustomRealtimeTest] section in the input file. Note that reinitialization cannot currently be skipped if the starting temperature is changed, due to complexity.
Fixed bug in ModMgr which showed duplicate updates for mods with an update.
Fixed bug in MAS2 packager which sometimes failed to create a package because it could not detect when a base cmp or mod was installed.

Today is a big day for IL-2 Sturmovik project – version 1.201 release. It brings several very important additions.
First, we launch the open beta of the Battle of Moscow campaign and Moscow maps. This is another step forward in mapping technologies – it contains several innovations and will bring you many interesting features not available before, for example: grass airfields without a dedicated landing strip, historically reconstructed city of Moscow, towns of the Moscow region that also have historically correct layouts and architecture, new ‘late Autumn’ season, water reservoirs, canals, canal locks, many new railway and road bridges, forestation different to Stalingrad region one and other things.
We’d like to point out that now, at the open beta stage, the map will still be improved: pine trees will be added to the forests and the overall distribution of various forest types on the map will be more detailed. Of course we’ll keep track of your impressions and improve the map where possible to make it as best as possible to the official Battle of Moscow release date. The campaign is also in open beta: it contains regular, generated missions, while scenario, static ones are being finished. Video intros between campaign chapters and chapter map tactical overlays are also WIP at the moment.

Second, players who pre-purchased Battle of Moscow will also get their hands on German twin engine dive bomber Ju 88 A-4 today. We must admit that it is the most complex aircraft in the entire project, but in the same time it is also a most interesting one in many ways. Rich instruments array, many system and flight model peculiarities, unusual gunner stations – it was an interesting experience to research and recreate and we think it will be interesting to the players to fly it.

Third, all 10 Battle of Moscow planes now have 10 official skins per plane that can be unlocked by progressing in the campaign. In addition, all 20 controllable planes in the game and each and every modification for them now have a technical specification you can view in player profile, during a mission briefing and even in the flight.
Fourth, the sim now has 64-bit architecture. This increases the engine potential and allows more detailed objects and textures to be created. Moreover, we used the dumps you submitted to fix several bugs that could crash the game. All this development should make the game much more stable in heavy, complex missions.
One of the crash fixes involved the track recording system, so the tracks format has been updated unfortunately – old track records won’t work in the new version.
Finally, the new version 1.201 contains many additional fixes and improvements (as always) which should increase the quality of your play experience and add more realistic features.
