I was surprised with my pace after spending the last 12 odd months at the back of the top 10.
Brakes help. 8)
Still struggling with concentration (and staying awake) after 2100, and race 2 fell apart half way through.
Still, very happy just to be able to lap. 8)
Well done Bacchullum, I also suffer from the 9pm "tireds" and drink 2 cans of a generic Red Bull from Aldi @ 99c each at about 5pm and it usually keeps me awake till about 10pm  :).

Assetto Corsa / Re: Racer Introductions

Hi team,

Scott from Brisbane here.  Casual simracer, been looking for a good australian league to join for some likeminded racing fun.

I've been through the FAQ, PM'd Wally my GUID, installed the pin lane penalty app, and setup discord and joined the team.  Still waiting on the kunos assetto forum to send me the activation email so I can download the helicorsa app.  I have a thrusmaster t300 with the ferrari alcantra wheel and the t3pa pedals.

Haven't done a lot of online racing so fairly new to figuring out how it all works and such, hence would be keen to get involved in the thursday night sessions until I figure out what I am doing a bit more.  I like a clean race and am very cautious in the first couple of turns.  He said I should get in contact with Phil.8 for the details of the thursday night sessions?  Anything special I have to do other than find the server and join in?

Cheers, look forward to it.
Scott
You will need these for Thursday Night

G2 is looking good Roo. Interesting the comparison to the Index they made. :P
It is interesting that HP never intended the Reverb Pro as a Sim headset and now the pre-order system is being used to make sure there is enough stock to meet demand, I believe this is a serious attempt to make VR more mainstream. I have never experienced the Mura or Red colour smear that some people have complained about.
My replacement cable was delivered by Josh at 5pm yesterday :).

I am deffo going to visit one of these centres when they re-open, they use the Reverb Pro with a backpack PC 8)

Assetto Corsa / Re: Hiatus

What pedals are you using Bacchulum?
Fanatec Club Sport V2 (I think, could be V1) so I've ordered one of these HAL sensors:


I heard a crack and the signal dropped to 17% and very erratic, 2 days later nothing at all.
This looks like the only piece that can break.
I suspect the centre part has broken out, but I need to get my tools this weekend to confirm.
I mentioned this to AB and RussG last night and they may be able to help, thanks AB and RussG.

Hey I'm Ben, 21 starting Uni in July.

I've done a bit of of league racing in Automoblista in the past, but now my mains are Assetto Corsa and Iracing.

Very good effort last night Ben, I hope you had fun and we see you next Thursday :) and a big welcome to Flattop's Thursdays fun racing.

Fantastic racing tonight.
Stupid Discord is stupid.

I was playing with the new chat interface CSP has got, but I guess half of you couldn't see it?
CSP is slowly replacing the entire UI.
I agree Seanus, great racing, I cannot recall racing in a bunch of 5 cars for lap after lap :o :o 8).

The problem with Discord must be fixable Seanus as it works for the rest of us. You could try lowering the bit rate of your audio device to see if that makes a difference. The single audio device should be able to handle both game sounds and Discord.

Home visit  :o now that's something else  ;) How long for the new cable, and have they improved it?
Sadly the problem with the cable was my fault :'(.

Update to my VR headset problem. Josh from HP visited my home with a new headset but it was not the problem. The cable connecting the headset to the PC was the problem and a replacement has been ordered :).

Are you masquerading at GT Planet under another name or, as is probably more sensible, just lurking there?   :-*
Just lurking, the safer option ;D

Cannot decide on which car to drive for this round, heart says Alfa, head says Lambo :-\

    Every so often, or once in a blue moon we get a real treat - The last time I felt this was the freebie from RSS the 'F3 V6 by Dave Williams'... Shaun, thank you mate, fantastic drive, you should be rightly proud of this mod. I just wish more modders had access to the real time data and the input of a pro driver. Thank you Kevin Burke :) My evening was going to be taken up practising Fuji Int for an upcoming Super GT race this w/e.... Not now it ain't - It's the Radical @ Brands..... Sorry Fuji, you'll have to wait!!!!!

    Thanks Shaun..... Got anymore gems up your sleeve :)…. The throttle response, the down shift and the feeling on the brakes..... Superb!!!!!!!!

Gee not good Roo  :( I thought they'd fixed the black screen problems... obviously not  >:( here's hoping replacement is better.

At least it failed while you still had warranty.
Most electronic equipment will fail very early in use ,if it is going to fail. A google search did not show that V2 of this headset is having problems so I may have just been unlucky. I still consider this VR headset as the best simracing piece of equipment that I have purchased. I will use the Lenovo until the new arrives. :)
