Assetto Corsa / Wings app explained
« on: February 26, 2017, 11:54:43 AM »
This is an interesting post if you want to dig into your aero setup with wings:

Track: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/mills-metropark.7222/

I'll put both the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 2017 and the Mazda MX5 Cup together in the early practice session,  so you can jump in and out of each car, then we'll have a separate qually and about 25 min race in first the MX5, then in the Porsche.

I'll update the practice server tonight.


MX5: 13 laps
Porsche: 15 laps

RACE RESULTS
SEASON STANDINGS

Penalties
Race 1
There were 4 cars wide approaching T1 - from left to right, Mael, Joe, Nith, Wally. There was one little touch between Joe and Nith, pushing Nith into me, where I spun across the track. It's hard to assign blame to this one - everyone had their gap in front of them, but 4 wide was overall too ambitious. If anything, Nith was overly ambitious trying to squeeze into the gap (as he was coming from further back), but there was room, with Mael doing the same on the left and resulting in us being 4 wide. No penalties.

Race 2
No impacts at all until lap 9!

Congratulations on Phil for the clean sweep in all departments, winning maximum points.

Season Champions
1. Diehard, 350
2. Phil.8, 330 (up from 3rd)
3. Joe & Mael, 312


Congratulations to Diehard on taking out the season, with 1 win and 5 podiums, and an average finishing position of 4.9. A great effort, given that he was often on the receiving end of penalties of either pitstop time or ballast. He never dropped out of the top 3 in the season standings.

Phil climbed steadily up the ladder all season to finish 2nd. Joe also climbed steadily, while Mael was consistenly around 5th with a late charge, with Mugello being his second best points haul.

Team Championship
1. Krahl Racing (Phil.8 and Joe), 642
1. DA Racing (Grat and Wally), 574
2. Maki Engineering (Freezer and Mael), 542

Phil and Joe were too strong as a combination, as the season podium shows.

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / S15R7: Mugello Race Chat

2 x 16 laps at Mugello. Last round of the season!

You will need the OSRW PIT MOD if you don't already have it. Unzip the download into your Steam assettocorsa folder.

It is going to be HOT. First race is air/track 30/38; second race is 37/51. You may need to experiment with your tyre compound choice to suit the conditions.

Penalty Ballast (45kg)

Success Ballast
Diehard, 60 kg
Grat, 45 kg
Matthew111, 45 kg
Wally, 15 kg

Although Diehard, who is currently leading the championship, has 60 kg of success ballast, he has a 28 point lead over Joe in 2nd place, which is probably an unassailable lead.

Between Joe in 2nd and Mael in 5th, there's only a gap of 11 points, so there could be some jostling for the final season podium between Joe, Phil, Grat and Mael.

Racing general / SVG on driving GT3's
« on: February 03, 2017, 07:26:42 PM »

Quote
“These cars are easy to drive on the limit. You just drive on the (electronic driver) aids,” Van Gisbergen told Supercars.com.

“Those guys do a 2:05s and 2:06s in a Supercar around here and it’s super easy to drive one of these compared to a Supercar.

“You just press the brake as hard as you can and it just stops. It’s a lot less skill and technique than a Supercar.

“When you do a 2:06 in a Supercar compared to a 2:01 (in a GT) here you feel much better about a 2:06. You feel like you’ve really driven a lap (in a Supercar).

“It was cool last year to do it (a 2:01s), but race cars shouldn’t have aids.

“I pray Supercars doesn’t go that way. If we keep gearshifts and no ABS (anti-lock brakes) and no TC  (traction control), it’s a proper race car.

Penalty Ballast (60kg)
RussG

Handicap (Success) Ballast
Because the pit stop delay isn't working reliably all the time, I'm going to switch to a cumulative success ballast, similar to how the pit stop hold accumulates, based on the previous overall round results as follows:

Round Results:
1st = +45 kg
2nd = +30 kg
3rd = +15 kg
4th = -15 kg
5th = -30 kg
6th and lower = -45 kg

So success ballast (for both races of this round, based on the overall round results at Spa), is as follows:
1. Kcender87, 45kg (he wasn't at Spa, but if he was, he would have probably won the round)
2. Phil.8, 30 kg
3. Diehard, 15 kg

In race 1, Grat had gone off the track to the left at Eau Rouge, and as he re-entered, he continued to move slightly to the right, where Diehard was passing at speed, also moving slightly left to get out from behind Joe, and they hit side by side. I think that was just an unfortunate accident, with neither car seeing the other to the side. Grat bounced off the barrier and got airborne, which caused the pileup.

In race 2, RussG ran into the back of Simone, causing him to lose 2 spots, so gets 60kg penalty ballast for the next round.

Assetto Corsa / One second game freezes - who's getting them?
« on: January 25, 2017, 08:04:20 AM »
On TeamSpeak, a few people said they were getting game freezes for a second. I've been getting them for 3 or 4 weeks now, once a race, where the visuals stop, but the sound continues, and suddenly the game wakes up with your car about 1 second down the road.


Who else gets this? Or has just started getting this? If we can get enough common evidence together, I want to post a thread about it on the support forums.


I have Windows 10 and an Nvidia 980. I guess that's all that's significant, OS wise. What about others?
