The XGN practice server (24x7, passworded) is called AUS www.xgn.com.au LEAGUE PRACTICE
(see who's on the server by clicking here
The XGN race night server is called www.xgn.com.au RACE NIGHT
. This server only runs on race nights.
The race server has a set entry list, meaning you can only join the race server if you have signed up on these forums and signed up for a season. PM Wally to get the password.
Once you've signed up, PM me (Wally) your Assetto Corsa GUID (your driver ID, e.g. 76561197992453305). You can find your GUID in My documents/assetto corsa/cfg/race.ini, once you've joined any online server to have the game record your GUID.
To find the XGN server, set your online filters as shown here and search for XGN.TeamSpeak
TeamSpeak is encouraged, for fun and better communication, so you know when the server is being restarted between races, when it's back up etc. TeamSpeak can be downloaded here
The TeamSpeak server is ts.xgn.com.au.
Once you're on TS, you need to poke Wally or an admin & ask them nicely to give you access to the Assetto Corsa channel.Turn 1 Racing Etiquette
To avoid turn 1 incidents, in turns 1 and 2 of the opening lap, stay on your side of the track
, i.e. leave racing room for the cars around you. Don't close up the gap by cutting acorss to the apex on the other side of the track. All cars will come through safely this way without big pileups. The Helicorsa app
is handy for knowing where cars are around you.Pit Lane Penalty app
You need to run this cut penalising app in season races, which you can download from this thread: http://www.xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=758.0
and read about here: http://www.xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=673.0
It gives you 3 warnings for cutting the track and on the 4th cut, you will get 10 seconds added to your race time at the end of the race.Redress
If you hit someone else in a race and unfairly gain a position, say if they've gone off the track, you are expected to redress and give that position back as soon as it's safe to do so. The best way is to pull off the racing line on the next straight and slow a little so the other guy can pass you safely. Communicate on Teamspeak so everyone knows what you're doing.
