a chip off the old block!  If only he would grow up faster, you would have an excuse to regularly  upgrade, "only to pass on old one down" :)

I know it's not a 1963 Plymouth or Galaxie , but can it be added to the current season's car list?

Hmmm, being AC's current publisher, maybe just continue on, but ready "demand", possibly up the rate of development.

waiting for vr to dive into it... :)

Look who's lurking... When are you gonna rejoin us buddy?

he has been spotted testing a red car on a server this week, so says a spy :)

Well it seems my issues are heading in the right direction.
All was good until about halfway, when I experienced about 3 or 4, one second freezes.
Luckily no-one was around as ended up in the wall on all occasions. :(
That's what's started happening to me too, maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago. Everything is smooth, and suddenly there's a 1 second freeze of the screen. I can't track down what might be causing it. There doesn't seem to be any sudden disk access at the time.

I have had it a couple of times, once last night too in qual, I have spotted "steam*32.exe" doing a lot of read/writes at the time and taking a giant size chunk of cpu, may be best to have task manager open in the back ground ready.

Great screen capture Wally, looked a little too exciting :)

well not sure why I wasn't at the back of the grid to start with, but let the first straight cruisy and then settled in as the tyres came good.
Saw the back of Brad often, had some good attempts in the first few laps, but judicially backed off.  Found a group of Robin, Seanus, Brad and Dez working hard on the early laps making for exciting racing.
with a pack directly infront of you, you can see just how violent the concrete banked turns were, a left over from slower and longer throw suspended cars!
One mistake, touching the grass entering the final turn saw me tippy toeing on the grass, hoping not to spin with the lack of traction, alas, it went from bad to worse, loosing a lot of time and contact.

Enjoyed the track car combo, so refreshing to see a diverse field, in vision and sound and of course strengths.  Great race, thanks all.
see you soon. 

PS happy concentration held out better, I was thankful of the limited turns and direction changes, I still had some strength left at the end, but had to exit without a "thankyou" sorry.

Love the idea of it, but I could hear people's frustrations on ts (from having the server being reset to accomodate the changes required to allow me in) which was raising my anxiety levels about the whole situation.
we have been all been their, there will always be a little bit of discomfort when new people arrive, but we think about it beyond the instance, we all do remember the initial learning from our experiences, it is all cool, next week will be easier, with you being able to fine tune things./
the monitoring app filters out the brainless wreckers on open servers, and is easy just to carry it over on all server, sorry I missed this off the list I sent, (along with what ever else I forgot :( )
The pitting is far different, but as was posted in this thread, the pitconfig app automates and it is simple, with multple pit strategies, this I forgot about too as i don't run the Tuesday league any more.


 Luckily the good people at Australia post have my new headset waiting for me at the post office this morning so I should be able to speak for the next race. it will mean an earlier reply than via the forum if you do have any problems.

After racing rfactor for the best part of 10 years, it is hard changing but I'm slowing getting used to Assetto (except for not having 5.1 sound support via optical), it's certainly a massive step forward. What shocked me was just how volient the bumps were in the oval section of the track and there were times where the force feedback nearly ripped the wheel out of my hands which was pretty cool.

Thanks again and I'm looking forward to being a more regular competitor in the weeks to come.

guess I'm done before I'm started as I'm getting no love from Assetto Corsa and still hitting the same error message.....granted I've only ever raced online for AC one since getting the game a year ago, but I know it shouldn't be this difficult and obviously there is either a bug, or password, or error on my part that is causing but  after nearly 50 mintues of stuffing around I'll crawl back into the hole I came out from and hope it can be fixed before next week...
Sorry I didn't look at the forum, glad it was sorted and you hit the track.

your on the ball roo, a good thought.

only just got to this, no wonder there are big smiles all round!  You'll always have a volunteer to go with you.

nice touch by the dealer with the picture on pickup. Noice.

You may be best off using the old simple ballast to slow down the faster cars at this track.  ;)

yeah the Ferraris and those Porsche!  ;D

that is bad luck and bl**dy inconvenient.
There is always step one: (with the power off), loosen everything and refit, firmly, in place.

often memory contacts get a little crappy/loose, the heat up and expand so often.

and of course, as mentioned above ^^ reinstall Windoze.
Hope you fix it soon.

Looks like I'm 24hrs late in getting my rig back together again. Hope to join in next week and make it a regular gig again, as its been way too long since I've been racing. Cheers
Brad.

great to see your heading back to the fold Brad, everyone has commented on how much fun this car/track combo is, and round one proved it.
