    Reversed grid

    Post by Sergio Marques on Sat Oct 01, 2011 1:24 am

    I really need a help here, today I had a server running with this config:

    [CONFIGURATION]
    PORT=9500
    BANDWIDTH=1000
    MODE=2
    MAXCLIENTS=15
    ACCEPTVERSION=107
    NAME=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    TRACK=xxxxxxxxxx
    CONFIGURATION=xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    CAR=osella;
    PASSWORD=xxxxxxxxxx
    ADMIN=xxxxxxxxxxxx
    REGISTER=1
    MULTIPORT=0
    LOOP=6
    WINNERBALLAST=0
    FRONTTIRE=
    REARTIRE=
    FULLMODE=0
    DAMAGE=80
    RAIN=0
    SESSIONS=4

    [SESSION0]
    NAME=Practice
    TYPE=0
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=180
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=180
    WAITTIME=60
    ACCEPTNEW=1

    [SESSION1]
    NAME=Qualify
    TYPE=1
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=20
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=20
    WAITTIME=30
    ACCEPTNEW=1

    [SESSION2]
    NAME=Race 1
    TYPE=2
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=6
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=20
    WAITTIME=60
    ACCEPTNEW=1

    [SESSION3]
    NAME=Race 2
    TYPE=2
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=18
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=20
    WAITTIME=300
    ACCEPTNEW=1

    [ENTRYLIST]
    ENTRIES=0
    USEFORGRID=0

    It was set to reverse the grid in the second race for the first 6 drivers, but it reversed the all grid. Is it a bug or the game just don't support it anymore?

    I Sergio, I would strongly suggest you to use the nkServerTool to configure your server. With a GUI it's much easier.

    The field to change is LOOP
    LOOP=1 grid not inverted
    LOOP=2 inverted grid
    LOOP=3 grid not inverted + ballast
    LOOP=4 inverted grid + ballast
    LOOP=6 invert first 6 drivers

    So in your case the right option should be LOOP=2. I haven't tested if that still works, honestly, but that should be the right option.

    ops...I've just read once more your post, and I realized that I should avoid replying as soon as I wake up on a Saturday morning Sleep

    so you wanted to set inverted first 6, and you correctly set LOOP=6, but apparently the server did something else.

    Question: did you press ESC, NEXT SESSION, or ESC RESTART?
    It should work, but maybe one of those options screwed up the correct behaviour.
    It should definitely be supported, and if it's a bug I hope Kunos will have time enough in this period to look at it.

    We used this option during our first race with the 1.3 (F1800 Blackwood), and I don't remember anyone complaining about it.

    My assumption is that if you let the server proceed to the next session it will work correctly.
    Maybe it doesn't work correctly in case you vote to go the the NEXT SESSION.

    Please let us know if you will do some more tests.

    Just in case, here is the config we use in RSR races





    [CONFIGURATION]
    PORT=XXX
    BANDWIDTH=9000
    MODE=2
    MAXCLIENTS=15
    ACCEPTVERSION=113
    NAME=radiators-GroupA
    TRACK=XXXXXXXXXXXX
    CONFIGURATION=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    CAR=XXXXXXXXXXXX;
    PASSWORD=XXXXXXXXX
    ADMIN=XXXXXX
    REGISTER=1
    MULTIPORT=0
    LOOP=6
    WINNERBALLAST=0
    FRONTTIRE=
    REARTIRE=
    FULLMODE=0
    DAMAGE=100
    RAIN=0
    SESSIONS=3

    [SESSION0]
    NAME=STAY IN PIT
    TYPE=0
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=5
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=1
    WAITTIME=300
    ACCEPTNEW=1

    [SESSION1]
    NAME=Qualify
    TYPE=1
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=15
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=20
    WAITTIME=60
    ACCEPTNEW=1

    [SESSION2]
    NAME=Race1
    TYPE=2
    ESCMODE=0
    MINLAPS=0
    MAXLAPS=0
    RACELAPS=35
    VALIDPERC=100
    SESTIME=300
    WAITTIME=300
    ACCEPTNEW=0


    [ENTRYLIST]
    ENTRIES=0
    USEFORGRID=0

    Thanks for the replay Andrea, you are right I need to pass as admin to the next session, because when everyone finish the first race it restart the first race instead of moving to the second one, so I had to move to the next session. No idea why that happen.

    I just do a small test alone in the server, it was in the 1st race, has I was the only driver the race don't start, but it doesn't move to race 2 as it should, it restarts in race 1.

    Troubles again for me with inverted grid, now I'm setting a server with the "Loop" option = 2 for full inverted grid, but it seems do it only if we restart the same race session, if we have a second race session it doesn't invert the grid.

    I will try it now with the "Loop" option = 6 to see if it works well.

    Seems like the online vote options for the final 1.3 version mixed with these options.
