  1. iRacing – 2019 Season 4 Patch 1 Changelog: Dynamic Track For a session with a “Fixed Sky” weather setting, the initialization of the track is now generated with the static specified weather, rather than using a dynamic sky before the start of the event. This should cause the temperature model to be very near equilibrium at the start of the session. – – This fixes an issue where setup builders were having an unpredictable environment at the start of the session. The multi-layer track temperature model has been adjusted to slow down the rate at which heat conducts between the layers. The net result of this is that the track surface reacts slightly faster to changes. The evaporation formula of water from soil has been adjusted so that the track surface will cool quicker but it will lose less water. New Damage Model Updated how cars are removed from the world when towed or disconnected. Now, a car and all of its associated parts will be removed from the world together. This avoids some situations where parts from a wreck are left on the track even though the involved cars have been removed. Fixed an issue that could cause a crash when transitioning between sessions. Fixed an issue when calculating collision forces that could cause instability or crashes in limited circumstances. Fixed an issue where the incorrect amount of damage could be applied when it was being split between two colliding cars. Fixed an issue where damaged parts would continue to collide with cars on pit road. Paint Shop A new sponsor, Sparco, has been added to the Paint Shop! Virtual Reality Optimized the use-case of Virtual Reality (VR) with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Anti-Aliasing (AA) when all enabled together. – – Eliminated several large render targets and some unnecessary copies and resolves of the rendered scene. The default pixel density settings for VR HMDs has been reduced from 120% or 130% (depending on the HMD model) to 100%. This means, by default, the Simulator will use the resolution recommended from the headset itself, unaltered, instead of scaling it larger. – – The affected settings are: “PixelsPerDisplayPixel” inside the “[Oculus Rift]” section, and “ResolutionScalePct” inside of the “[OpenVR]” section of the RendererDX11.ini file. – – – This change is primarily due to the newer, higher resolution HMD displays, which do not benefit as much from the extra resolution. And, the extra scaling leads to a much larger video memory footprint and fill rate, both of which negatively affect performance, especially when combined with anti-aliasing and/or HDR rendering. – – – The existing settings in the RendererDX11.ini file are not altered by this change, so we recommend that all VR customers should consider reducing these values manually to be to as close to 100% as possible for best performance, or re-run the iRacing auto-config utility, then adjust and carefully readjust as needed. Move where OpenVR and Rift VR runtime blocks the rendering thread so that it happens immediately after present() to reduce the rendering latency and improve pose prediction and frame timing. Fixed a pose prediction issue in the OpenVR support, related to posing prediction timing for the upcoming frame. The OpenVR SDK has been updated from 1.011 to 1.6.10. Broadcasting Interface Fixed an issue where post-processing effects (such as motion blur) were appearing incorrectly while using broadcasting mode. iRacing API Special characters will now be stripped from the YAML CarClassShortName string. Steam API The latest Steam API has been integrated. CARS: Audi R8 LMS GT3 2019 Season 4 GT3 Balance of Power Adjustment: Minimum weight has been increased by 10 kg. Audi RS 3 LMS V7 tire compound has been adjusted slightly. – – Tires should reach peak operating conditions earlier in the run. Differential and rear brake valve adjustments can now be mapped to the steering wheel. Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Fixed an issue where the cockpit gauges were losing their lightmap when the car was damaged. Dallara IR18 Fixed an issue with the reflective properties of the Advanced Frontal Protection (AFP) device. Season setup for Charlotte Motor Speedway and Kentucky Speedway has been updated. Lucas Oil Off-Road Pro Trucks (Pro 2 Lite) – Engine cooling efficiency has been improved. NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – 2018 Rear brake light decals have been updated. NASCAR Xfinity Chevrolet Camaro – 2019 Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Xfinity Ford Mustang – 2019 Season setups have been updated. NASCAR Xfinity Toyota Supra Season setups have been updated. Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car (991) In-car engine sounds have been improved. Gear shift and compressor sounds have been improved. Porsche 911 RSR 2019 Season 4 GTE Balance of Power Adjustment: Fuel consumption has been reduced slightly. Radical SR8 Season setup for Silverstone Circuit has been updated. TRACKS: Charlotte Motor Speedway NEW TRACK CONFIG! – – A new track config, Roval, has been added and enabled for use! – – – This track config replaces the original track config named Roval; it has been renamed Roval – 2018. Gain-time checkpoints have been updated to prevent cutting sections of the infield. Flagman animations have been updated. Pavilion building glass color has been adjusted. A new loading screen background has been added. Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya The yellow curbs at Turn 1 and Turn 11 no longer disappear at any rendering distance. Fairbury Speedway Fixed an issue where cars could sometimes get snagged by the wall at Turn 4. Fixed an issue with the visual popping of the start/finish booth.
  2. Changelog v1.0.9 - ForceFeedbackIntervalSteps now defaults to the highest frequency rate (0) when generated. NOTE: if you already have the value in your controls.json, delete the line or the entire .json for the line to regenerate with the correct value or change the value manually to 0. - Wheel controller is now polled at 333Hz. - AI "take space" behaviour is now less aggressive, requests less distance from the car in front, reacts less abruptly and guarantees higher minimum speed. - Fixed incorrect driver stint times in Championship Endurance races. - Potential fix to startup crash due to failed screen detection. Changelog v.1.0.10 - Fixed default gearshift debouncing calculation being too low - Added gearshift debouncing slider to controls configuration screen - Fixed TrackIR flickering.

  5. rFactor2 European Hill Climb Championship RACE 15 LOCATION (START AREA) Trapani-Sicilia-Italy Monte Eriche PROGRAMMA - TIME TABLE TIME ATHENS GREECE (GMT +2) 30/09/2019 Monday,free practice 20:30 start of qualify 22:30 start of the first car (warm up session) - first stage - second stage (restart warm up session) - third stage (restart warm up session) - end of race
  6. V1.0.8 Changelog General: Fixed “Skip Intro Sequence” setting not working. Added driverStintTimeLeft and driverStintTotalTimeLeft to sharedMemory. Added rainTyres flag to shared memory and digital displays. Fixed sessions in shared memory, added session index. Fixed current lap time in shared memory, added deltaLapTime and estimatedLapTime. Fixed bug with fuelUsed value in shared memory. Fixed tripDistance in shared memory. NOTE: more documentation on shared memory data is available in the following link: https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/acc-shared-memory-documentation.59965/ Replay version is changed. Fixed MOTEC venue name bug. Exposed forceFeedbackIntervalSteps in the controls.json in documents/Assetto Corsa Competizione/Config to increase Force Feedback frequency (0= 333Hz 1=222Hz 2=111Hz, default is 2). NOTE: high-end wheels will benefit from using a higher frequency, but older wheels should keep setting “2” for compatibility. Gameplay: AI now observes blue flags vs. player and other AI cars. Fixed inconsistent and wrong Career preset values (notably extra-long Qualifying sessions in Endurance races when playing in “Long” mode). Practice sessions are now globally limited to 60 minutes. Added pitlane open/closed logic to stop the AI from entering the pits in the first lap in mixed weather conditions. NOTE: the pitlane now opens when the leader completes the 1st lap. If the player pits before the pitlane is open, there will be no pit crew ready. Championship code structure reviewed. NOTE: pole sitters are going to take 1 point. Possible fix for AI late pit-exit limiter deactivation at Monza. Added cutting warnings in Savegame. Added session fuel consumption to Savegame. Fixed superfluous RaceComm messages when loading a Savegame. Fixed AI running faster for a few minutes after loading a Savegame. NOTE: these fixes will require new game saves to function correctly. Loading older saves will still lack the correct data. Fixed various crashes that could occur when exiting the replay. Added automatic driver swap in the MFD when pitting. NOTE: in Sprint races, the MFD will automatically jump to the next driver when entering the pits, and driver swap will be blanked ut outside of the pit window. Fixed a bug with ghost car after returning to pit. Fixed Helicam remaining enabled on session change. Fixed Silverstone full formation lap bug with AI. Reduced yellow flag relative speed threshold. Fix for a bug with the Ferrari after a garage teleport, where the car would continue a lap down due to a respawn glitch. Fixed fuel time calculation for pitstops based on how much fuel the car already has – previously the refuel time in free refuel mode depended on refuel amount, regardless of how much fuel the car already had. Fixed pitlane entry message for AI (and better pitlane entry for Barcelona). Fixed wrong assists applied when returning from special modes, such as Career. Increased session overtime in Career events from 2 mins to 3 mins. Fixed different professionalism bonus texts in the Career. Completely reworked Custom Championship architecture. Fixed Custom Championship entry generation. Fixed qualifying rule based on number of races in Custom Race Weekend mode. AI flashlights when lapping. New system for safer car location state. AI now slow down to get space in qualifying. AI now uses current delta time to aid in the decision to abort a qualifying lap to take space. Fixed potential crashes during reverse replay. Updated and fixed pit triggers for all tracks. Fixed possible wrong states on consecutive replays of restarted sessions. Fixed yellow flag warning during podium sequence. Fix for Savegame game mode that was saving a different value after a different game load. Audio: Fixed potential crash with audio comms disabled. Tweaked audio behavior for external sound fading (to fix inconsistent audio in F3/F7 cameras). Fixed gear compressor timing for the Porsche 991II GT3 Cup. Added basic car spotter Added new audio warnings for flags Added new audio messages for stint ending and stint over VR/Tracking Fix for the reset view (Ctrl+Space) not working with menus and HUD layers when using the HTC Vive (Steam VR plugin). Enabled trackIR in freecam (F7) and chasecam (F1) views. Fixed inverted axis in TrackIR. UI/HUD: Fixed showroom being zoomed on triple-screen resolutions. NOTE: the new FOV is applied after a game restart. Added Stats page to the Driver profile UI. Added the possibility to enable the spotter in the Audio options. Fixed tyre set selector issues in the pitstop strategy section of the Setup/MFD. Game Mode helper texts revised in the UI. Stabilized realtime leaderboard in the starting phase of the race. MFD: certain elements now allow continuous increase/decrease on button down (fuel, tyre pressures, brake bias). Fixed a condition when the MFD weather forecast wouldn’t update. MFD: driver selector is now locked in pit window modes once the player has completed the mandatory stop. Fixed leaderboard race number on points table page. Added nationality on leaderboard page/points table. Fixed selectors on the leaderboard page. Added personal best lap times to loading screens and Singleplayer Circuit Info. Fixed and tweaked multiple Custom Race Weekend and Custom Championship options in the UI. Added driver stint rule message on the pitstop MFD page. Fixed fuel test slider inconsistencies. Updated Rating Profile Help texts. Removed replay button visibility without recorded time. Added penalty indicator to HUD standings and realtime track position widget (also affects pitmenu standings and broadcast HUD). Numerous text description and navigation-related corrections all across the UI. More obvious indication on the HUD when the driver stint goes into overtime. Graphics: More effective advanced sharpen filter in video settings. Fixed polystyrene distance markers inverted in Brands Hatch. Fixed various visual bugs on the Hungaroring and Brands Hatch. Fixed graphical LOD issue on the Porsche Cup. Various graphical updates on the Audi R8 LMS. Added driverStintTimeLeft and driverStintTotalTimeLeft pages to the Racelogic display. Racelogic pages rearranged (laptime, delta, stint driven, stint time left, total driving time left). Default key to cycle is ALT+D. Tweaked RPM lights layout for the Bentley Continental GT3 2018. Fixed a bug with ligth cones when opponents visibility was used (focused car had front lights off after changing car with Shift+Arrows). More consistent placeholder values on dash displays. Physics: Wet asphalt water film depth now influences aerodynamics. NOTE: you might need to raise your ride height up to 4-5mm to regain the same splitter and diffuser balance and performance on a wet track. General UI setup and MFD tyre pressure logic refactoring. No more automagic for ambient pressures. Whatever the ambient temperature, the slicks are now preheated at 70°C and you can input the pressure you want for that preheated temperature. Preset setups are already adjusted. Old saved setups will start with very low pressures and you generally need to add 4 to 5 psi extra. Simply put a tyre pressure you desire, usually 2psi less than the hot pressure you want, and go. Minimum tyre pressures now at 20.3psi, as per Pirelli document request. Pay attention as the pressure can get lower than that when the tyres get cold without blankets while waiting at the grid start and can easily deflate on kerbs. Fixed MFD pitstops screen tyre pressures. All cars updated preset setups with new tyre pressures. Improved flat tyres grip, you should now be able to return to pits with a flat tyre. Fixed high fuel consumption under pit limiter. Fixed engine consumption in idle. Tyre blankets for slick tyres now at 70°C. Optimum tyre pressure tweaks. Fixed ignition on by default with manual engine start in certain cars. Fixed motion data stopping in the middle of the cooldown lap. Fixed incorrect AI tyre pressures after a pitstop. Honda NSX GT3 fuel consumption tweaks. Mclaren 650S GT3 improved TC logic. Fixes in Lexus RC F GT3 fast damper preset setup. New aggressive Barcelona preset setup for Audi R8 LMS, Mercedes-AMG GT3, Lamborghini Huracán GT3, Bentley Continental GT3 2018, Porsche 991 GT3-R, Ferrari 488 GT3. Multiplayer & Ratings: Increased the minimum pre-race time to 80s for public MP, decreased to min 5s for private MP. Small improvement to the MP formation lap, preventing the ability to outrun the leader with good timing. Servers won’t spam “late” warnings for event resets. Fixed ghost car (disconnected car) during MP replay. RC Rating was rewritten and now works again both in SP and MP. RC will start at 0 while the old Elo value is still remembered. Numerous SA Rating improvements. Most changes raise the requirements to gain Trust, so global SA ratings are expected to drop a few points. Fixed a bug where lifting on straights would generate Trust. SA and RC will change at a slower rate for low AI strength (< 90%), while the balance between Trust and OBWP is untouched. Fixed FP2 and Q2 not displayed in the server list. Enabled collision bag for both MP and SP. SA penalties should only be applied to cars that are “root” contacts, no OBWPs for being caught in a mass accident. Fixed replay autosave in MP when the weekend changes. Server passwords are now stored. Increased low-latency (LAN servers) ping accuracy, possibly removing jittering. The effects will also improve regular Multiplayer netcode prediction, but won’t be as significant. Added DT, 5s, 15s penalties as admin commands. The driver swap info widget is now more compact. Numerous fixes to driver swaps situations. Team names are now visible in MP. Netcode preparation for new pitstop rules, preview instructions will be added in the forum. Server weather configuration now has more weight on the cloud level, configuring high cloud levels drastically improve the chances of rain (when dynamic weather is used). Server weather configuration now uses rain level as a chance for a completely rainy weekend (when dynamic weather is used). Server admins can use both weatherRandomness and rain level to achieve different types of random rain experience. Enabled the collection of new driver statistics. Possible fix for MFD crash in MP when changing pit strategy after a driver swap.

    WRC 8

    Πάντως στο DRIVINGITALIA συμφωνούν με τον Φιλόθεο. In other words, not only is this WRC 8 light years away from the previous WRC 7, but it is at least a few steps above DiRT Rally 2.0 and, we can say, it is approaching for certain aspects and in certain circumstances the glorious Richard Burns Rally In conclusion, WRC 8 improves its predecessor in every respect. It's more beautiful to look at, deeper, more fun and definitely simulative.

The issues of audio cutting out mid-Stage are expected to be resolved in a future update. The ability to spectate in Multiplayer Lobbies is in development and could potentially appear in Version 1.9. The ability to use a “Dashboard” camera angle (similar to the one seen in DiRT Rally) is expected to be added in a future update, most likely Version 1.9. Version 1.9 is in development and is expected to release around October 1.
  19. IRACING BETA INTERFACE: iRacing BETA Interface – The Friends List feature has been added to the iRacing BETA Interface! – – You can view your Friends List by clicking on the small tab at the bottom-right corner of the iRacing BETA Interface. The Friends List is divided into several distinct sections, including: Friends, Requests, and Blocked. – – The Friends section includes all members whom you are Following, and/or with whom you are Friends. – – The Requests section includes all members whom you have invited to be your friend, and members whom have invited you to be their friend. – – The Blocked section includes all members whom you have decided to blacklist. – – – Each section is sorted alphabetically, and is super-sorted by other factors, such as Online status, Following, and Favorite (Star) for ease of use. – – – Clicking on a member name for each list type provides you with several list-sensitive actions, such as: View Profile, Request Friend, Follow, Unfollow, Accept Friend, Cancel Friend Request, Block, Unblock, or Join Session. – – – Each entry in your Friends List also informs you as to what that Friend is doing at the moment, including; Offline, Idle, or Racing. The Friends List can also let you know when they were last online. – – – – For a Friend in a Session, you can jump into the same Session with them, provided you meet all the event criteria, using the Friends List! – – A Search box at the bottom of the Friends List can help you find new friends, new members to follow, or quickly find the person you are looking for in your own expansive Friends List. – – Members may now hide their Online Status (ie: appear Offline) from other members, by using an option in the Friends List settings menu. – – A member may now enable an option that disables ALL incoming Friend Requests. With this option enabled, this member may still send Friend Requests. – – A member that has Blocked you, or has disabled ALL incoming Friend Requests, may not be sent a Friend Request. You will receive an alert message if this is attempted. – Your iRacing funds balance is now displayed in the iRacing BETA Interface near the top-right corner. Clicking on it provides easier access to the membersite to add additional funds. – The official iRacing Twitter feed is now embedded on the Home page. – Your locally installed setups for each selected car will now be listed in the iRacing BETA Interface when you choose to use Fixed Setups for a Session. You can then optionally upload setups to iRacing, for use by others in the Session. You can also delete any previously uploaded Setups. – Various Up Next/Current Series updates and fixes, including: – – For the table view, the License Category of an event is now displayed within the License tooltip. – – For the table view, Series logos are now always visible. – – Inside the Tags dropdown menu, clicking on a tag’s row now toggles the switch for that tag instead of requiring the user to click directly on the switch. – – Countdown timers for events now have consistent and improved black styling. When a countdown is within 10 minutes of starting, or has started and may be joined (ie: Practice), it now has a white outline. – Various Leagues updates and fixes, including: – – League Owners and Admins can now set the League Owner’s Nickname and Preferred Car Number. – – League Owners and Admins can now delete Sessions from a League Season. – – When creating a League, the cost is now displayed with any applicable purchase taxes pre-calculated. – – The League Search modal window now remembers search criteria between searches, meaning you will no longer lose your search results if you inspect a League, and then go Back to browsing those results. – For Time Attack, when you want to drive against someone in the Standings, this button now appears if the Time Attack Competition only has one track. – Fixed an issue that could occur where viewing certain Results pages that caused the interface to enter an unusable state. – Fixed an issue for the table view in My Teams where the Team Created Date was always today. iRACING SIMULATION: Membersite – The Blacklist functionality has been consolidated and updated. – – The separate list for banned (ignored) spotters and the Blacklist have been merged into a single list. The control in the Settings panel for managing ignored spotters still works, but now shows this combined blacklist, and any changes are reflected in the blacklist available from the myRacers page (and vice-versa). – The effects of blacklisting have been expanded. Blacklisted users: – – Cannot spot for you. – – Cannot join a session hosted by you. – – Cannot apply to a Team you own, though they can still be invited. – – Cannot apply to a League you own, though they can still be invited. – – Cannot send you a friend request. When blacklisting a current friend, that user is automatically un-friended. – – Cannot view your online status. – A new option has been added to the iRacing membersite Settings panel that, when enabled, blocks ALL incoming Friend Requests from all Members. You are still able to send outgoing Friend Requests with this option enabled. – – This option is also natively available in the iRacing BETA Interface, via the new Friends List. – The iRacing Membersite now features a Live Chat feature, as another way to contact Customer Support. – – You can find the Live Chat widget located in the bottom-right corner of the Membersite. – – – Clicking on the Live Chat widget will initially connect you to a BOT, who will gather some required information such as email address. Customer Support will then respond as available – if not immediately, then via email. – Fixed an issue where the tracks for an Official Series’ current, previous, and next weeks must all be updated to be able to join a session in that Official Series. – – Now, each Session only requires the correct track for the correct week to be up-to-date. The “Test Car on Track” button in the Race panel will only switch to “Get Required Updates” if the content listed in the Race panel is not up-to-date, or there are system updates required. Windows 7 SP1 – This is a reminder that Microsoft will be ending support for Windows 7 on January 14th, 2020. At that time, iRacing will no longer support accessing the Membersite or running the Simulation on the Windows 7 operating system. – – If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact Customer Support at support@iracing.com. Store – Fixed an issue where disabled or unavailable store items were counting towards the 100% Club Discount requirement. Cars – Some older vehicles that currently do not have an active Official Series have had their names prepended with “[Archive]” to denote this status. Simulation – Fixed a bug where having an out-of-date intermediate content package (eg: “/tracks/charlotte”) when using a piece of content inside that package’s directory (eg: “/tracks/charlotte/2018/oval”) would cause an Error 72. Dynamic Track – A new track temperature model has been added to the Simulation! – – This upgraded model now utilizes multiple layers beneath the ground to track temperature and moisture, as well as simulating three days of weather prior to an event start time for generating the track initialization. This track model also continues to run and generate data that will be used for additional sessions if there is a skip between sessions. The multi-layer approach means that temperature on the surface will behave more realistically. Also included is a more accurate interaction between water and temperature, which can result in the track being cooler than the ambient air temperature if the conditions are right. – – The end result compared to the previous Dynamic Track model should be that temperatures will likely be cooler in the morning and early afternoon, and warmer in the late afternoon. With the previous system, as the sun sets, the track temperature cools rapidly with the incoming solar energy gone. With this new model, the heat that is built up (especially if the skies have been clear) in the layers of earth below will work its way back up and warm the surface. Similarly, built-up heat from cars will last longer if a lot of laps have been driven. The layers allow a realistic recording of history that the old model simply could not. – – Think especially about a very short, mild rain shower — in the old model, the track temperature would plummet and never come back up, even after all the water was gone. With the new model, heat is retained in the lower layers and the surface may regain some of the lost temperature. – – Also significant, when a session starts, the track temperatures are no longer calculated using the cloud conditions at the session start time. This meant if a session happened to start with the sun obscured, the track would have been unrealistically cool. In the new model, if the sun is out most of the time leading up to that moment, that will be captured and the track will still be hot but cooling off. – The effectiveness of using a dirt cushion has been reduced. V7 Tires – The following vehicles now utilize V7 Tires: – – Aston Martin DBR9 GT1 – – Audi RS 3 LMS – – Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1 – – Dallara F3 – – NASCAR K&N Pro Chevrolet Impala – – Skip Barber Formula 2000 – A lot of work has been done on improving the modeling of the tread rubber compound for this release. We have been testing on more cars than the original Skip Barber Formula 2000, which is helping us to dial the tread compounds in. The vehicles for which we have added V7 Tires represent cars with a wide variety of tire constructions and compounds, and this will help us plan for the future. – Temperature spreads across the tire are more accurate, although carcass probe temperatures read higher than they should, generally. This is because they are reflecting temperatures deeper into the tire than would be typical for a tire probe. New Damage Model – The New Damage Model is now available in a Beta-Test version for the Skip Barber Formula 2000! – The New Damage Model system includes major changes to improve both collision and damage. – The New Damage Model is currently only active when all vehicles in a Session have these required updates. In all other circumstances, the session will run using the classic damage system. – The New Damage Model includes the following improvements: – – Collision shapes now closely match the vehicle shape and dimensions, and can deform appropriately when damaged. – – Damage due to impacts can loosen and even detach some vehicle parts. – – Wheel impacts can bend suspension, damage spring dampers, and break hub attachment points. – – Wheels can hang from remaining attachment points or detach entirely. – – Detached parts and wheels can impact and damage other vehicles. The parts will remain on track until they are out of a drivers’ sight, when they will be cleared away. – – Vehicle wheel on wheel contact is more accurate and considers wheel spin and friction appropriately. – – All collisions with the track surfaces and environmental objects are now using a high resolution collision mesh. – – Impacts against detached car parts and wheels do not count toward incident penalties. – – Visual effects for debris and scrapes have been added and improved to support the New Damage Model. – – Sound effect processing for impacts and scrapes has been improved to support the New Damage Model. – Please keep in mind, this very complicated feature remains under development, but we wanted to share our progress with you, and get your feedback on the system. For normal racing and in light to moderate contact conditions, drivers should expect the system to behave appropriately. High-speed vehicle on vehicle impacts are in need of some further development. Please feel free to experiment, and let us know what you think. And have fun! Pit Stops – NASCAR pit stop time deviation has been reduced slightly. Rendering – High-Dynamic Range (HDR) Rendering modes now use a linear format render target instead of a gamma encoded render target. – – The linear formats support mathematically correct additive lighting which improves the accuracy of things like brake lights, back fires, windshield reflections, glow and bloom effects, and many other items which cannot work correctly with a gamma encoded render target. Many of these items have since also been adjusted to take advantage of the linear format improvements. – Improved the accuracy of the default gamma encoding/decoding in the DX11 shaders for better color reproduction and contrast. – The Simulator now supports launching directly in windowed HDR16F modes on HDR10 displays. – – If HDR is enabled in the Graphics Options, and the Simulator is launched in windowed mode, it now checks the color space of the adapter output (the display) to see if it is HDR10. If so, it will launch using an HDR16F swap chain directly. Previously, one had to launch full-screen and then Alt-Enter back to a window to use windowed modes on HDR displays. If you have multiple monitors, it will check the adapter output that was specified during the graphics Auto-Configuration (see adapterIdx in app.ini or re-run the autoconfig to select/change the monitor to check). – For Advanced Graphics Options, the video memory maximum footprint has been increased to 8GB (previously 4GB), and the system memory maximum footprint has been increased to 16GB (previously 8GB). – – Please note that the auto-configuration utility will still not recommend utilizing over 4GB of video memory. – A custom lens flare/bloom effect has been added to the solar disk (the Sun) via a post process step. – Improved the environmental reflections in shadow coverage. – Further improved the ambient light calculations for vehicle cockpits. – The dynamic shadow map system was altered for cockpit camera views to attempt to work around the flickering shadow maps that a few customers were experiencing. – Adjusted the brightness of haze/fog so that it is proportional to the world’s illumination levels. – Additional objects have been converted from using older shaders to the newer physically based versions of the shaders, including track cones which were suffering strange specular artifacts. – Backfire effects have been updated and now emit HDR lightmaps for different appearance at night vs. day. – Stadium lights and headlights have been adjusted to work better with HDR linear render target. – Headlight flare\bloom effects have been updated for HDR linear render target formats. – Internal windshield reflections have been updated for HDR linear render target formats. – Camera flashes have been updated for HDR linear render target formats. – Smoke textures and shader colors have been updated for HDR linear render target formats. – HDR bloom effects have been replaced with a more effective version. – Cameras affixed to the outside of a vehicle now have their motion blur amount capped at the same value as the interior car cameras. – Fixed an issue with flickering dynamic shadow maps for cameras with a Field of View (FOV) larger than 165 degrees. – Fixed an issue where some car shadows (the drop shadows under the car that mimic ambient occlusion) could appear to have jagged edges. – Fixed an issue with motion blur where tire barriers would appear to have a halo effect when dust was nearby.
