Assetto Corsa / Re: AC News

So the "Unreal engine", does that drive the current AC?  I'm assuming not, hence the weather etc in this version.
Be good to see it all bundled together in say AC2!

Wikipedia says they started using the Unity engine but due to constraints wrote their own engine from scratch,

Uploads can make it spike quite hard. Any kind of cloud sync like Dropbox or onedrive or your phone uploading data to the cloud could cause high pings

Assetto Corsa / Re: VR - exciting times ahead...

I'm definitely on the Pimax 8K bandwagon.

It actually renders at 1440p per eye and then upscales to 4K.  So the horsepower isn't as much as it sounds - made even more confusing by basically lying about the resolution in it's name.

But, from the hands on I've read and watched it sounds like screen door effect is all but gone and the 200 degree FOV is real and amazing.  Obviously there is a lot more detail in everything as well.

The issues at the moment sound like it's more to do with head tracking (done using Vive's) and comfort.  Also some screen blur which is far more of a concern to me as it uses LCD, not OLED, and I believe blurring is inherent in LCD which makes me think that is one issue which might be harder to fix.

Either way, 4K VR is what I'm waiting for.

You were far too fast just with a single monitor. Giving you VR seems like the rest of us won't have a chance. (not that we did before anyway)

Nice. I think with the ebay case the screen sits in those little notches I can't remember 100% now. It has a port on the back for when using with a Pi which is why the OSR one is so deep. I assume it has the two plates as the backplate holds it all in.

The LEDS on the CSL Elite base are pointless, can't see them with either rim I have  ;D I did read there was going to be a firmware update to disable them but haven't seen it.
I was thinking this plate would replace the one you have carbon wrapped. The rest of the pi box you have would remain the same and basically sit in the same position it is currently, only it would be bolted to the wheel base through the new plate. How do have it mounted now, double side tape? Only going by the pictures you posted...

Ah gotcha! Using Velcro at the moment.

Good stuff. I'd always liked the idea of having one but with no space for it the wife wouldn't be too happy.

I'd seen stuff like this before on this website:

They had this which is for the LCD screen I have:

Was tempted to order one but not at that cost + shipping.

Think I'd missed the last two Thursday races so took a little longer to get used to the car again but so much fun when you do. Was thinking of bruce during the race as remember he took a win at gentrack not that long ago.

General Discussion / Fortnite Battle Royale

Been playing this game the last few days and it's a lot of fun. 100 player battle royale a bit like PUBG but with a more cartoon arcade feel and you build forts to protect yourself.

It's FREEEEEEE which is the best part!

Think I qualify as a sim racing noob...600h total on AC, a bit GSC Extreme and the rest is WRC on PS quite a while ago.
So is this Guybrush an 'alien' then? I mean his server stats are pretty impressive.

When it comes to democracy, that's like in the real world, you vote and someone else decides.

Yes. Alien. Nobody could really touch him.
