My G25's Optical Encoder wheel has just bought the farm. Or at least I think it has. It calibrates fine, then by the time I've driven two laps of Spa, "straight" is at about 40 degrees. Unplug, replug, try again, same deal.
I've heard about many different ways to fix, but I thought I'd ask here and see if anybody else here had come across this problem and what successes and/or failures they have had.
Haven't tried this yet, but I've been waiting for it for a while. Looks like it should be a lot of fun, could be a good one for Thursday nights...
A few friends and I are planning on doing an endurance race at a Sim Racing LAN that is happening at my house this weekend.
As part of it, we're having a mandatory 3-minute pit stop for toilet breaks. We were just going to use our mobile phone timers to track it but were worried that this might prove unreliable/cumbersome. I really don't know anything about python and I've been reading stuff all day to try and figure out if I can make an app to do this from scratch, but if there was an app that did something similar to what we have in mind maybe we could deconstruct/edit to work for us.
Basically, all we need is when someone stops in the pits, a timer (that displays on screen) starts, then when they leave the pits, it sends a message to chat saying "[driver] pitted for x seconds".
Does anybody know if there's anything out there that does this or something similar?
Looks like someone has made a better version of this track without the insane amount of bumps around the last section in the trees!
Anybody know where I can get a replacement power supply for my G25 (same as G27)?
I have a problem with mine. It started out that my G25 would turn itself off and back on whenever certain light switches in my house were turned on or off regardless of where I had it plugged in, and has now progressed to the point where it just does it randomly. Happened last night on the 2nd last lap of race 1, luckily I was lonely on the track at the time and it didn't cause issues for anybody else, but it ruined my chance of a 5th place finished.
I have a mate who recently bought a second hand G27 and he brought it around here for testing purposes and it didn't have any problems, so we swapped power supplies and then my one was fine and his started doing the same thing, so it seems the power supply is at fault.
Problem is, I can't seem to find a replacement unit for any kind of reasonable price in Australia (ie. they're expensive enough to make me consider just buying a second hand G27), or they're reasonably priced but overseas.
Haven't driven it yet, but this thing has been coming for a long time and looks to be a pretty high quality mod going by the thread about it on the official forums.
Just gave it a squirt for a few laps around Monza. It looks, feels and sounds glorious!
I mentioned just on Thursday Night that I'd love to see Simmons Plains in AC, then today here it is on RD! Haven't driven it yet, but apparently it's a copy of the one for rFactor2, which is apparently pretty good.

For example, I can't get them to drive the Abarth 500 Assetto Corse or the BMW E30 M3 on Barbagallo. They will practice and qualify, but won't race (and some other cars work fine, so I don't think it's to do with the AI Fast Lane). They just sit there on the grid and it's like they're in gear but not revving (ie. Tacho shows 0rpm) and in some cases have the steering wheel tilted all the way left or right.
