What emotion to drive with the aliens in full mode!!! 1st time for me :-)
I had no time at all to try 1.3 and the new KS2 on Mugello, so i decided to load the old setup that Gek gave me for the last championship: very bad, the car was bounching like a magic ball on each bump....
Another problem was yesterday evening i had a very slow framerate, around 40fps, probably due to the fact i didn't restarted the pc before to race (i joined to the chat at 21:15....).
I decided to try to race in this condition..... i was tooooo happy to drive with you!
The qual were very bad, last position. I noted an error in the driver list: monti was there 2 times, one with 0 ping in the box, the other driving on the track..... strange
I did the warmup for 2 laps and i decided to do 1 long stint 30 laps and another short 10 laps.
In the first 3 laps i was behind you, and i've seen a perfect start: all the drivers mantained their line up to the end of the first lap..... i'm in group A, all of you have a lot of races behind so a lot of experience.....
I tried to drive clean, discovering lap by lap the new phisic of the KS2 is more stable, so i tried to push a bit, obtaining quite good laps (around 1:30, but with this setup). I was close to Monti and i passed him i think 2 times, and he passed me 1 times.... good battle between two "bradipo" ;-)
After 15 laps we had the connection of Wolf, coming from Group B to inform us there are problems in the other server: i had a complete freeze of the game, for i think 4-5 seconds. I tried to brake and return to 1st gear, but when the game returns in live, i was in the sand without the wings..... ESC, 10' in the box looking at your times and restart.
After the freezze, all your car become a blue box, up to the end of the race :-(
I was 6 laps behind you, so all of you were in race, no possibility to reach you. I tried to let all of you pass me without issue, sometimes braking up to stop my car.
I was able to finish the race without crash, and it was enough for me.
- the "full mode" is ok, but to have no info on the status of the race (upper band and red times on the left) is not so good to understand where you are (the board on the box wasn't working yesterday for me, seeing L0 and P0 each time ....)
- if possible, disable on the server the possibility to connect when the race is on: this can avoid lag like i suffered yesterday
- for the 1st race of the next champ, perhaps you can manage the entry in order to have a good group A and let to the drivers the possibility to race in group B, if they aren't aliens.... ;-)
- i need a good track engineer who gives me a good setup ;-)
Did you never tested if the damage level Kunos put in the last release solves the problem of flying cars? Perhaps we can decrease this value up to the situation where all the small hit between 2 cars give no problems, but if you hit a wall, you have damage. Kunos perhaps can teach you about.
I don't know witch damage level was used yesterday.
Last news for you: last week i was able to catch an ASUS GTX460 TOP for 100€ (2nd hand) and i received a new power supply to use with it ..... this weekend something will happen on my pc .... i'm ready for a new heat :-)))))))
p.s. in v 1.3 i'm not able to see my skin and all of yours. perhaps it can bee a good idea to upload a new skin pack, including all the lest release and a mini tutorial to install and use it (Giancarlo?)
