Assetto Corsa / Re: Online Controller Issues
« on: May 19, 2018, 06:03:16 PM »
I have not changed anything, I use the same config each week and just change car and tracks,  but I have noticed that sometimes lately my shifter will go to 1st when meant to be in 3rd and if I alt tab out and look at fanatec properties it shows in third so not sure what's causing that, I have been lucky it has not happened in a Tuesday race yet, just in qual and practice, but you can bet ya bottom dollar in will happen in a race this week now I have mentioned it :)
Wonder if that what happened to Wally on Thursday night. Remember at some point as he had an off he said he got the wrong gear.
That was totally human error!

I gave up trying to race on Thursday night due to stuttering graphics. It was minor but undriveable. This had just started happening this week - don't know why.

I did some research and someone suggested renaming Assetto Corsa folder in Documents to force AC to recreate that folder. Once I did this the graphics stuttering was fixed. I am also now using PP filters with success which I couldn't do previously. Worth a try for anyone having less than stellar graphics performance.
Thanks for the tip - my performance was a little stuttery too, but I also just had the big Windows 10 1803 update, so I don't know if it was down to the track, or the Windows update. I have to do some more testing.

I've only tried the XGN servers, both Tuesday & Thursday.
(did you and Phil do something?)
No, haven't changed any settings other than tracks/cars for ages, that I remember. But I'll double check.
edit: there's not much you can set server-side. On the Tuesday practicer server, ABS and TC are factory, stability control is off, autoclutch is allowed. That's all you can change, controller wise.

Just a guess... Is it on every online server? Could it be server settings (I think you can disable autoclutch on the server, for example) .

RDP is remembering the credentials OK, because you can connect to the box OK. It's the server itself that is then asking for the Administrator password again. It's Windows Server 2016. Maybe there was a Windows Server update rolled out. I checked the group policy on the server, and that has disabled the need to enter a password when you remote in.

But then again, when I log in with the other tool, it doesn't ask for an additional password, so maybe Win 10 updated the RDP client and broke it.

You certainly had amazing pace. By the last couple of races, I was thoroughly enjoying it.
I could do a season in this car :)

It's happening to all of us, so I reckon it's a server issue.

I have started using this Microsoft tool to connect to the server:

This  doesn't prompt me twice for the password and is generally very useful especially if you log on to more than one remote server.

The server has started asking for a password every time I or Wally access it and also has started saying "The server name on the certificate is incorrect" and "The certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority", I am pretty dumb with all this stuff and was wondering if anyone (Bird) knows how to fix it
With the certificate thing, it's OK to tick "Don't ask me again for this computer" (or whatever it says). That's more a problem at the Amazon end than anything we can fix.

I really enjoyed that little Mazda MX5 Cup car we drove recently.

43 laps.
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.

The weather is 19 degrees - slightly cooler than the previous race.

The 1975 British Grand Prix was a wet affair, won by Emerson Fittipaldi in a McLaren.

Some interesting history:
From the start – in which a lights system was being used for the first time in any Grand Prix, replacing the traditional national flag – Carlos Pace led from Pryce. Following the hail storm, only six cars were running at the end.

So, incorrect. :'(
Einstein said there is no universal definition of "billion". More or less. It's all relative to your country of reference :)


I'm not sure if I actually managed to pass anyone on track, but ended up in 11th and made up nearly 2 secs on my previous best practice times.
You definitely passed me when I was off track!

LOL Kcender :)

Grat, I would check that you've got enough disk space free on the drive where your replays are stored (Documents/Assetto Corsa). It could be that after half an hour, AC is trying to write the replay file and crashing due to low disk space.

I got caught up in the opening collisions, which put me pretty much at the back. On the way I had some good racing with DaveO, getting a draft past him on the straight then getting a boot in the rear when he drafted behind me, but I managed to hang on in the fast sweeper. Then I caught up with Doobs and gave it a couple of laps close behind him, but I couldn't pass, so I pitted relatively early to get some clear track. It was pretty clear when I came out of the pits, which was good to just try to get some fast laps in, but I didn't have much pace.

Late in the race I had a stupid spin when I got a bit much kerb at T2, losing a couple of places to Seanus and Doobs to drop me back to 12th. I reckon turns 1 and 2 are the hardest part of the track here, with the unsettling kerbs and the camber.

Phil wins the second race of the season, leading from pole to the end, running a long H, Short S pit strategy. Last week's winner Kcender finished 4th.

None. Seanus and Keith had a tangling of wheels which caused a few collisions, but it looked pretty innocent and unavoidable.
