Assetto Corsa / G25 & G27 Potentiometer fix
« on: November 13, 2018, 06:02:28 PM »
There has been various people over time who have experienced spiking with their pedals on G25 & G27's, myself included.
It has also been hard to find replacements however I located these replacements.

https://www.digikey.com.au/product-detail/en/cts-electrocomponents/450D103F7/450D103-6-ND/183274

I grabbed three for around $17 plus delivery from their Aus web site.

I fitted them and found the following minor issues.
The main shaft is slightly shorter but has no effect on installation.
The small loops on the electrical connectors need to be snipped off to allow normal connection.
The hole in the metal pedal body that you slide the shaft through is around 1mm to small, so a quick drill to enlarge fixes that.

Once installed, I found they have a different range of motion to the originals.  You need to go into Options | Controls in AC and adjust the min and max values for the pedal (see Pic for my Throttle).
With this done it operates completely fine. 

Upshot is a brand new potentiometer for minimal spend that works correctly after a few modifications.

Only two cars so far but they are impressive and sound better than most AC cars. (that is if you like the sound of a bellowing V8 )

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / S8R6: Spa Post Race
« on: September 15, 2015, 09:42:36 PM »
Disappointing result for me tonight after what was looking very promising.
Qualified 7th in the GTC and got a ripper start to grab two spots by turn one.
From there I was able to gradually chase down Jeremy and Mathew and get by seeing me up into 3rd and now inching my way up to second spot.
Then unfortunately I had a spin at Eau Rouge.  I did the full 360 glancing the wall and kept going having only dropped one spot.
The car however was a bit slower after that and I eventually dropped 3 spots and was back in 7th.
Then on lap 9 I see "Connection Lost" . . . %^&#
So the bonus of triple points and a decent result went begging.... (:
Anyhow . . thanks once again to Wally for the season and well done to all that competed, some good close racing was had!

Hardware & Reviews / Windows 10 Gaming
« on: July 31, 2015, 12:40:45 PM »
Windows 10 free upgrade is now out and I just finished reading a review in the August APC magazine which in reference to gaming talks of its DX12 support.  It talks of a few 'significant' improvements. 
First is a much lower-level of code access to GPU silicon for higher performance gaming. 
Early Intel testing suggests reduced CPU power consumption by greater than 50% on a SurfacePro3 but the most impressive addition is the ability to combine discrete and integrated GPU's into live gaming.  "Multiadapter" brings your CPU's integrated graphics engine back into service alongside your GeForce or Radeon card.  Your card will handle the main frame rendering with the integrated adding post processing effects. 
Results so far indicate a 10% boost in game frame rates from your existing hardware. (as long as you have a Geforce 600 series/Radeon HD7000 series or newer card).
Any one taken the leap yet to upgrade?

« on: July 07, 2015, 12:10:48 PM »
So with only 2 races to go it might be time to mention Season 8 and what we will be racing.
I'll go first and propose a single make low powered car series . . . . a nice change from the hyper cars.

Hardware & Reviews / Ultra Wide Monitors
« on: May 24, 2015, 10:07:53 PM »
Any one using one of the new ultra wide 34inch 3440 x 1440 IPS monitors for racing?
I went shopping for 3 screens and then came across these that hover around the $1000 mark.

Pros; wide, no bezels, not to resource hungry, virtual screen splits for work use.
Cons: Price, not quite as wide as triples.
Questions: Will AC support it properly?  Does it give sufficient side view like triples.

Your thoughts.....
