Since no-one is saying it.   :o

The SS tyre was by far the superior race tyre. It almost felt like cheating in the first few laps and it did not suffer much degradation.
A ha, that's why you caught me so quickly! :)
I used it in the final stint but wasn't watching times and didn't realise we dropped into the 10s!

Going to be interesting if they last at Brno - different wear characteristics...

Hey - can we put the server and racing start time in the top post.  I am old, I can only store so much information these days.  Start times for XGN vs. daylight savings doesn't meet the bar to purge "wives phone number" from memory bank   ;D

Penalties
Race 2 - ab156 for losing control and hitting Wally - 50kg penalty ballast for the next Supercars race.


One of the most deserved penalties! Won't be a thread debating this one  ;). Really sorry Wally, not even trying at that stage and just a rookie error - not in control of the car.

Other than that I had a good nights racing, Utes were more fun than expected but the V8s is where the real fun is.  Once the brake bias is sorted and a metre or 2 allowance applied in the braking zones they are pretty consistent. Great racing back through the field with the unfair advantage of SS. Was certain I was going to take out Simone at T5 as I went sliding by, lucky one there. From there on it was 100% intensity with Simone and Freezer, had a (passing) moment of empathy for Freezer when he handed 2nd to me going off at T5 on the last lap.

Yeah, we had a few problems which I can't pinpoint yet, potentially simply overloaded with bots/crawlers.

Then I've decided it'd be good to update since we were behind by a couple of versions, and that has been successful, but the youtube tags are no longer working, and blast me if I know what was doing it before.
Potentially one of the mods that are quite dead now.

Sorry.

No need to be sorry - fully appreciate the effort required to try and keep these things running and secure.

My bad - I made a last minute hange to Brads skin so messed up the link... this should work (you get what you pay for): https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApPV0K1vl9QdoAD6PgriMgVYgF-W?e=g0fOrp

Advice on videos:

The video embed is not working via youtube tags, just post the url like this (without the spaces)
https: // youtu.be / S4aUtzNLyBg
or
https: // www.youtube.com / watch?v=S4aUtzNLyBg


Well it was working, I checked but thanks for the alternate!  The YT embed code disappeared off the forum in the last few hours  ???

Weirdness going on with the forum in general over the past 24 hours.

Hotlap Challenges / Re: Third server?
« on: October 13, 2020, 07:23:51 PM »
100/100. That hadn't occurred to me, I have an always on system that I could run a Hotlap and testing server on. Only on home NBN myself with a practical speed of 30/20 with not great reliability either, so no good for a race server but should work for the above.

I'll whip up a couple and see how it goes. One for Hoptlap and one for testing including running full CM CSP SOL.

This is what I am thinking, I have enough bits to build up a server far in excess of an EC2 instance that we could use for non"official" testing (hotlaps, CM stuff etc.).  Keep the proper stuff where it is.

I've booked some time on Thursday to set it up, I'll send you a PM and we can go from there.

It is the smallest server you can get and it runs Tuesday Practice and Thursdays.

I have been meaning to ask is anyone interested in taking over ownership of the server and the payments, which come in at around 7 - 10 dollars a month

I dont really care if no one does and and am more than happy to keep paying the monthly fee,  I just feel that I should check as seanus and roo are doing all the work they might like it out of my name and in theirs.

If you want to let me know and I will fill out the AWS form for change of ownership,  if not I will leave it as is  8) ;D :D

Phil - how much data are we talking about? I'd be happy to look at taking over the host or even hosting locally .... (100/100).

Not very good at it but lockdown boredom motivated me.  Unfortunately none of the skins look as good in game for this mod (even the one provided). Above my paygrade.

Download link included in original post.

Should be a good season.

Will be running the bright yellow No. 56 MelloYello Mustang so you will know who to avoid...

Hardware & Reviews / Re: Nvidia 3080 - 80% better performance than 2080

Which one did you pre-order?



AORUS Master.  I put a massive amount of thought into it.... basically the last 2 motherboards and GPUs have been Gigabyte / AORUS and I've been happy with them so....

I know EVGA are cheaper and seem to be the pick of the bunch for price vs. performance however the list of people trying to get them is extreme.

Have you got one yet?

Perhaps I am having a grumpy day but I am not convinced the 30 series is actually the messiah. A proper stoning may be in order  :P

The massive performance gains leaked are actually related to thermal and power and are not linear with rendering performance. In some scenarios there are impressive performance improvements but in others they are pretty small in scale (e.g. 130fps - 145fps - your not going to notice). I have noted the limited "low" res performance uplift. Might be a case of the cards trying to keep up with the increasing screen density we are expecting these days but I was not really looking to upgrade all my screens to justify the graphics card upgrade.

I think the real benefit will be from fully utilising the capability the "RTX" brings which I don't think is being optimised in the sim racing world. Now might be a perfect time for the West brothers to reappear.

Don't get me wrong, I am still on the pre-order list and will get one to replace the trusty 1080ti.

Not sure yet, got over a month to sort it out 

For the car/cars hopefully some older rally car preferably, but might have to go modern car if they don't cut it compared to a modern rally x car

Have had a quick look and there is a few mods tracks so hopefully they are fun to drive.  I've found that the more open tracks tend to be more fun than the tight and twisty tracks.

Will be more like fun runs than a proper season , do a couple of weeks and if its well received then do a couple more .

My Sons girlfriend got me playing some rally x on PC2 and was quite fun so curious as to how it would be in AC.

*cough* wreakfest *cough*  :o

Actually, might save that for holiday season
