Thursday Nights fun racing / System crash/complete rebuild.
« on: Today at 03:31:06 PM »
I know it sounds horrible (and I was a bit annoyed) but it turned out to be fairly painless. Only thing I missed was backup of my Assetto Corsa folder in Documents. But my setups are no great loss. Having said that, I only had a couple of apps to install - AC, TS, 7-zip plus a wheel and pedal drivers. I didn’t even need to install graphics drivers.

PS. To reinstall Win 10 I simply went into Recovery option in Settings and selected the option to clean install. Then I walked away and let it do it's thing. Very easy.

This might blow your mind, but Grat and Gratulin are two different people.

It's just a habit when I type Grat I always type out Gratulin.. I don't think I've ever called him Grat.. subconsciously do it.
And I spent the night rebuilding Windows 10 and re-installing AC on my PC.

I'm afraid I am out unless I can sort out my PC issues.

I did an update to AMD drivers and Windows update decided to do it's thing in the background at the same time. Now nothing works!! Latest is it wants to re-install AC - all 34GB!!! Bloody hell !!!!!

[UPDATE] Got the shits and pulled the plug on the whole PC. Doing a clean install of EVERYTHING. Man, I hate PCs...AND Phones btw - my phone also went into an endless boot loop last week and has to be sent back for a replacement.

Did I mention I HATE technology !!!!

Phil you selected a Ferrari skin, but the list above ^^ has you in a Nissan?
Updated. I'm trying to keep up with how fast Phil is changing his mind.
There’s a pattern emerging if you consider the rate of Thursday nite rule changes! Expect Phil to change cars halfway through the race on Tuesday :)

@Wally, sorry for the late change but can you swap me to the Lambo please?

After a practice race I'm going to have to change my choice. The rapid LMP cars plays havoc with my poor internet connection so I'll revert to the slower GT3 class. Only the ultimate driving machine is good enough for me so one of the BMW please Wally.
You have captured perfectly why I will drive a GT3 car:

“The rapid LMP cars play havoc with my poor old reflexes so I'll go for the slower GT3”

Yep. No way going to Foxtel just for F1. But I think from the article Ten has a tight contract with F1 and sells onto Foxtel so Liberty are stuck until that runs out. I would expect/hope direct subscription deals like MLB in the States might happen after that.

No more FTA F1. Only on Foxtel. Not sure when this kicks in.

EDIT: I think it kicks in this weekend. F1 official site says that the Malaysian GP is on ONE live this Sunday. Latest TV program guide doesn't show it.  :'(

Has anyone successfully connected? I am also getting checksum error.
What car are you trying? Bacchulum and I are on in Porsches.
All fixed. Turned out I had to update the OSRW version of the track. Note that this was necessary (at least for me?) even though the practice server is not using OSRW version.

PS. Were there any rule changes you were planning on the night?

Phil and I discussed this and we strongly agreed that as I was lapped by the entire field last race, that I would have no restrictors and everyone else would have MAX restrictors.
nice try, did it work?  ::)
Nope :(
 I think they gave me a max restrictor cos I was way off the pace again.
Did you learn how to quote from Phil??

GT3 please Wally

I may be late tomorrow and might even miss the start of the second race, so to make it easier if I am not there i am going to make it 2x20min races and just need someone who is on the server to restart practice at 7.30pm please :)
We’ll try and manage...

I won't be buying it anytime soon. I am "full up" with AC
I must admit, AC provides a wealth of entertainment, I must have been in the "gotta have" mode for a few seconds  :o
Yep. Me too. I was in “AC has gotta have that feature” mode.
