That sucks Dave, I guess all you can do is rest up and take it easy.

Hopefully see you back on track soon.

Thanks Dave and Phil, migraines and poor fps are facts of life for me, its only when they coincide that I struggle.

Very sorry to hear that Rob. Have you checked the box in CM , Shaders Patch/optimizations.......  CPU optimizations, the box for "prevent AC from altering thread affinity" may help with FPS. Hope to see you next week :).

Thanks for that Denis, but unfortunately I had already ticked those boxes.

I think it was more a case of dealing with the after affects of my migraines than frame rate issues. I'll see how I go next week.

Hey  Guys, sorry for my sudden departure last night.

I had problems with the frame rate of Tsukuba, and that coupled with the series of migraines I have been having over the past few weeks started doing my head in and I started feeling quite unwell and thought I'd better leave in a hurry.

Hopefully will be back next week.


Hey Phil, for a bit of free advertising for XGN, how about we make it with no password. If "drop kicks" join we can always change it to PW?

Take care Wally, and get well soon.

Seeing as we are dabbling in a bit of Jazz, this is currently my fav Jazz band.

ps the drummer had less than 24 hours to learn the entire album.

75 and still driving a F5000 :o ?

There might be hope for me yet  ;)


I have been massacred!!!

Sorry Simone for 2nd race. I was concentrating on an overtake move on somebody else and didn't see you come up on my inside till the last moment. I veered away but we still touched.

Sorry mate.

I know, I felt bad about handing it out. But rules is rules.

Hey Wally, don't feel bad about handing out the penalty. I wasn't boo-ing you, I was boo-ing my mistake.

Race 2
On lap 1, corner 2, Rob moved across from his side of the track to the apex and as a result hit Ben who was beside him. Because of the "stick to your side of the track in the first 2 corners" rule - 25 kg penalty for next race only.

Apologies to Ben, I had no idea I had moved over on you and would have apologized on the night if I had known I was at fault. Sorry mate.

My first penalty - Boo!

Hopefully we can have 4 races tonight and we each use a different car for each race so i can get better data for balancing the next race.

Hi Jarmel and Phil, I hope it doesn't mess with any of your plans but personally I am not a big fan of changing cars during a Season. So if it OK with you guys I will stick to just one car tonight and for the whole Season. It will choose one of the slower cars but I'm sure it will have its strengths and weaknesses at the different tracks so I don't believe I will get an unfair advantage.

Its partly laziness on my part as I do not practice during the week and also being of a certain age I find adapting to different cars frustrating and unrewarding. And this is supposed to be fun isn't it?  ;)

Cheers guys.

Nice find Dennis.

7 pages of them!!! Did a quick calculation, if we try a different mod every Thursday it will take us over 3 years to try them all. :o

Unfortunately they did not give me a lot of entertainment as Rob was a bit too friendly with Jamie. need to cover those inside lines Rob!   :P

Hey Mael, I consider myself a gentleman driver, and will not block someone who is clearly faster than me, but my attitude was not helped as I have had a series of migraine headaches this week and was not really up for a fight.

But watch out next week...... meh, who am I kidding, it will just be more of the same  :P

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Re: S31R8 - Suzuka

man im finding it tough to get a solid setup around this track.  even default is feeling rough.  anyone got one they want to share? :D

Hey Dave, this is the LHD Supercup setup I have used for all tracks. I aim for my setups to be stable but not particularly fast. Keep in mind I know nothing about car setups and I am one of the slower drivers, so try it at your own risk.

The only advice I can give is not to NOT push too hard while the tyres are cold (about the first 2 laps) once warm you can push quite hard, and there is no need to rev much past 5,000rpm. Don't bother going into the red zone. I can't use the car at Suzuka so I have only done a few laps but I got into the 2:12's, which is way off Mael's pace.

Hope this helps
