Everyone needs to calm down, take a deep breath and get their emotions in check. I am looking at the situation. I don't care who's driving what car. I am making a judgement call as to who might have made an avoidable mistake that impacts someone else badly. Nobody likes to be sent to the back of the field on the opening lap, due to no fault of their own, after all that practice and qualifying; that's what we're all trying to avoid.In the absence of a [LIKE] button. I post this to second Wally's post.
Come on, guys. I get you: I am one that gets pissed relatively easily, as you know. But usually I wake up in quite a different mood the morning after Nobody is trying to screw up the night for anybody here. We all know the rules, but sometimes perceptions and emotions do not help. We can only learn from these episodes and try to have the best racing we can next time.

Joe: of course I do not mean "never do it." What I mean is that it often happens that if you hit me in the opening corners and I really spin out, then you may find yourself 10 or even 20 positions ahead of me. I would not expect you to redress that one, and it won't be so safe to try to do it even 3 laps later. We already discussed this in a previous season and we came to the conclusion that opening lap crashes must be redressed only if it is "easy" to do so. So I was just reminding everybody of this. Of course, if it is easy and it's just one or two positions, please do it!*but* try not to do it for accidents in the opening corners, unless you and the victim are already the last two of the pack as a result of the crash. Said otherwise: it is almost never safe to try to redress a lap 1 accident. Wally will take care of that by asking a few sumo wrestlers to ride as passengers with you in the next race.
Yeah, I know... now (that I am using vr )maybe Russ's one is the most similar in total, though I had no wheel like the other two.

All fairly similar. Seanus has a pretty wide FOV; I have the narrowest. Phil and Russ are pretty similar.Maybe Seanus's monitors are bigger...
BTW: I do not have a picture handy right now, but it used to look like the other ones. The 45 degree angles let me have good vision of both mirrors, but otherwise it is the same as Wally,... maybe Russ's one is the most similar in total, though I had no wheel like the other two.
I remember doing a lot and a lot of tuning. It's not easy. You need to get the right dimensions, angles, and so on. but even then, there is some finetuning to do with your eyes. One lucky thing for me is that they have my own car in AC, with just minor details being different. So every day for a while I measured how things "looked" to me putting my fingers at a given distance from my eyes in my car and then replicate in the game In the end, I was really satisfied.
I second the recommendation that the closer the monitors, the better. 45 degrees worked ok for me. and then you want to match the wheel, the hands of the drivers as much as possible (considering that not all wheels have the same diameter. Finally, pitch is important. I am not very tall and like to seat low, so I was often in the chin of the AC driver.
My first impression is that it is a tiny tiny bit worse...I've only tried a few games and it seems good, but I haven't tried AC with it yetNew nvidia driver 390.65 January 9thShould I go for it. I am on 388.43 because usually the latest drivers give me a bit of mess, so I try to stay on stable but slightly older drivers. I'll do what you say, if you say, though
EDIT: ...or just exactly the same.
cool I was just posting in case you missed it, I just installed that new driver but not tested yet, but I have read some good reports on it, try it and at worst will have to do a roll backAlrighty! Will do tonight!
Are you getting the same thing on other tracks? Maybe you can just put it down to a poorly optimized mod track?I was able to test with the replay from Tor Poznan, and it was nto much different. Perhaps I can find an older replay in another track. I am trying to isolate graphics from physics, hence the choice of testing on replays---AI we know is heavy on CPUs.

Is your USB system overloaded? Is you Power Supply large enough? Have you changed the case? (only joking)USB overloaded?... I am not sure. I'll google it and try to see what it means
Power supply? It's 650W. I have no clue as to whether this is large or small...
I used prime95 with hwinfo. It all goes "low" temp until the 8 tests end (say high 70s to low 80s. As soon as they end, hwinfo shows the temps to jump up a lot, approaching 99C... I was pretty confused and scared by that. So I stopped prime95 and the temps went instantaneously to 45C or so. Do you know what that means?
Have you tested reduced Graphic Options to see if 90+ FPS is achievable?I have done all sorts of tests with graphics option. I am impressed by how little I gain. I even tried world detail minimum, AF off, AA off, shadows off, PP off, reflections off, mirrors very low, and supersampling at 1. It looked like a gme from the nineties, but it still does not stay stable at 90 all the time in the replay of the race. The lows are less bad though, as it really rarely get below 80 or so, but it still does...
