Thursday Nights fun racing / Next Season - Shelby Cobra of course !
« on: December 14, 2017, 10:01:59 PM »
Next season will be brought to you by FLATTOP Racing
(inspired by one Lemmy Caution)

>>>>The Cobra the whole Cobra and nothing but the Cobra <<<<


This post is to start putting down ideas for tracks

Also I am not as talented at making a post that looks anywhere near as good as Bruce could for the Thursday seasons.
So if anyone wants to write up a fancy post for future seasons don't be afraid to put your hand up.

Here's a quote from Thursday Night's Season 1; Round 1 Post race chat

Quote
Enjoyed the racing last night, I wished I hadn't got caught up in the couple of accidents, but did enjoy the car, plenty of value.

Night 1 with 12 racers fronting up made a nice size field for the inaugural Thursday Nights' Fun Runs.  The Shelby Cup has some points assigned to it, (Ionly need to get the results!, I have one screenshot only and have no logs. Next week's upgrade). So who ever can provide the places I would appreciate it...

I know, I know, I can hear it already...  ;D

Pre race one, with 3 minutes to go I do a radical change to the setup, not the worst thing concidering I also drained the tank to try for abetter time...
I do like the advantage of getting back to the pits and being able to change from an impossible, (read "stupid"), setup and at least be able to continue on.  Next time I will cross the start/finish line, then escape to the pits to remove the lost lap.

Now some one ended up in the pits too, from the start! I think it ...? If you can be on team speak, we would all be happy to restart the race under those circumstances, it is really disappointing being so close and missing out the race.

Race 2 saw me catching a few, smashing, catching a few... but enjoyed the experience.  Now with the server at least easier to configure/run for next week I think i can concentrate on the races more...

You may have noticed, we are now going to be racing at Goodwood, an change of tracks.  I think this is more suited to the cars and the event.
Sign ups will remain as they are, with the current numbers, the reserves will remain on the grid unless pushed out by a perm commitment by new racers.

Hope you all enjoyed as much as I did. Thanks for being part of the event. Thanks for the preparation assistance too.

Bruce.

I am not asking for help and if no one wants to that's cool, I just thought someone might be able to do more justice to the season posts than I can :)

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Fall creator update
« on: November 22, 2017, 02:25:20 PM »
It causes stuttering in games, It has something to do with game mode and what it does to full screen rendering,  google it, its too complex for me :)
anyway I have found a fix after a few weeks of annoyance .

You have to disable fullscreen optimization

It's easy. If you want to disable fullscreen optimization for just individual games, navigate to games .exe, right click > properties > compatibility > check "disable fullscreen optimizations."
 

If you want to disable it for games across the board, globally  (which is what I did), go to your general Windows settings (windows key > type "settings" > gaming > game bar > "record clips, screenshots..." OFF > UNCHECK "show game bar when I play fullscreen games microsoft has verified") restart the PC and try your game again in buttery smoothness :)

Note that you have to turn the game bar off AND uncheck "show game bar when I play..." Just doing one doesn't fully disable the overlay.

Just wondering why my post to honour Malcom Young was deleted ?
Surely we can talk about more than racing pretend pixel cars ?

Sad day today, a legend who's music I have grown up with and been a part of my life has passed away :(

You don't see him much in the videos, but You can sure hear him if know what listening for,  He is the sound of  AC/DC.
I saw  AC/DC on 27 Jan. 2001 in Hobart,  Stiff Upper Lip Tour,  reports the next day how the concert was heard from the eastern shore were amazing to me that it could be heard from so far away, but should not of been a surprise as the cloths on your back literally shook in time to the music :)



   7.10  to 9.10 you get a pretty good bit of Malcom in action, don't see him much , but can hear him not missing a beat
  - tour I saw





Ride on Malcom Young

Is there any way this could be modified for an interesting Thursday season of winning money and been able to buy a faster car for the next race.
