    Known Issues:

    • Hockenheimring: Some of the curbs are missing.

    • The new Flag Rule Settings are not available for MP.
    We will release a hotfix patch tomorrow to fix these issues.



    Game:

    • Changed the flag rule setting and added a new flag rule setting “Visual Only” which means all flags get triggered and shown but there are no penalties applied with exception of black flag. (SP only for now)

    • Added Display mode with settings windowed, borderless windowed and full-screen.

    • Fixed issue in data displays where standings page kept ghost entries when you were in the lead.

    • Introduced delta timing in data displays.

    • Fixed some occurrences of yellow flags for DNF cars.

    • Disabled displaying of yellow, blue, black & white and white flags while player is in pitlane.

    • Removed so slower class in multiclass race doesn't trigger white flag.

    • Disabled slip effects while changing tires during a pitstop.

    • Changed so content ownership isn’t required to load a replay file.

    • Fixed a crash that could occur when processing a camera reset callback after returning to menu.

    • Updated Fanatec SDK to 3.0. This should also fix the issue some players experience with their CSW 2.5.

    • Fixed issue with replays not using asynchronous rendering.

    • Fixed issue with an uninitialized variable when using Fanatec wheel.

    • Fixed an issue where H-Pattern mode would reset to Neutral when race start sequence starts.Thanks to Franconen and team-gtr3.fr for the report.

    • Fixed issue with Multiplayer advertisement banners not getting saved in replays.

    • Fixed an issue that could occur in game session if the player has a lag spike of over 10 seconds during certain sequences.

    • Game now invalidates both current and next laps in qualifying sessions, leaderboards and competitions if the player goes off track or wall rides in the last corners of a track.

    • Made brake disks pre-heated when starting a Time Attack session


    VR:

    • Bloom and Light Shaft effects are now disabled in VR.

    • Made the HUD size dependent on the distance to it.

    • Made it possible to adjust the distance to the HUD via two bindable keys.

    • Fixed the rendering of particles and contact shadows.

    • Made the game use the SteamVR settings panel's/config file's resolution setting to set the resolution for the eyes instead of a number argument following "-vr" or "-oldvr". Any such number in the argument is now ignored.


    Multiplayer:

    • Fixed so player nodes are marked as inactive and kept by the server if a player disconnects during a race session. This fixes the issue with broken results because of players leaving the server too early after a race. Also fixes results for spectators joining late.

    • Fixed so checkered phase ends directly when all vehicles have finished.

    • Fixed an issue with spectators not being able to join full servers.


    Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI:

    • Bathurst: AI Tweaks

    • Hockenheim GP : Tightened Cut detections

    • Moscow Raceway FIM : Tightened Cut detections

    • Nurburgring (all layouts) : Tightened Cut detections

    • Shanghai (all layouts) : Tightened Cut detections, AI tweaks

    • Suzuka (all layouts) : Tightened Cut detections, AI tweaks to prevent going wide in 130R

    • Zandvoort : AI tweaks


    • BMW M3 E30 : new sounds

    • BMW M1 Procar: Tweaked chase camera, improved results of car to car collisions


    Art:

    • Data displays now added to all cars. Some cars don’t have a display in the cockpit, but will show the display on the HUD when pressing ‘7’ to cycle through HUD display modes.

    • Hungaroring : Fixed some overly bright runoffs, swapped 2D audience to latest ones

    • Paul Ricard : Fixed some curbs and adjusted banking of some corners based on drivers feedback.

    • Suzuka : Smoothed a nasty bump just before 130R.


    Portal & Backend:

    • Fixed issue with time interval not clearing up in MP browser.

    • Implemented MP results and MP Standings for championship events in Competitions.

    Hey Guys

    Can anyone explain

    Made the game use the SteamVR settings panel's/config file's resolution setting to set the resolution for the eyes instead of a number argument following "-vr" or "-oldvr". Any such number in the argument is now ignored.

    Yes, the game now looks up the settings in SteamVR.

    Until now you had to use -vr 2.0 as an argument to start RaceRoom in VR with 2x multiplier.

    Now the number isn't required anymore and it will use whatever you have defined in SteamVR.

    Have you tried deleting the device_statistics.xml and menu_controller_options.xml in Documents\My Games\SimBin\RaceRoom Racing Experience\UserData ?

    Updated Fanatec SDK to 3.0. This should also fix the issue some players experience with their CSW 2.5.

    My wheel still says N/A at wheel range in car setups. Will report back when I have deleted device_statistics.xml and menu_controller_options.xml.

    I also have upgraded to the new drivers 289.

    edit:

    Still says N/A for me. Too bad cause I really would love to pick up R3E again, cause I've invested money in it. and much. :p

    After deleting those files my wheel was working again, but the pedals had to be reassigned.

    Now I'm having a bunch of profiles, which I've never created and all my FFB-Settings are gone. My profile "Fanatec Clubsport Wheel Custom.rcs" ist still present at ...\UserData\ControlSet, but I cant access it anymore. Whenever I enable it, the entire base is missing again.

    Honestly Christian, the last couple of weeks I'm really pissed. I already payed a lot of money for this game and encounter bug after bug.

    Thank you for the update. We highly appreciated that we have to delay our league race (this year at least for the third time) again...

    I don't know why is it so difficult to give a patch release date in advance for the public (~ 1 week earlier than the planned maintenance)...

    At least this is going to be our last season with this game, and with this series (WTCC '16). (We have a partnership with a TT Cup driver, and we had a TT Cup season this year...now the next will be hold with AC, so shame on you.)

    Regards,
    Adam

    VR Mode:
    VR works
    RR Window only black...

    Not working:
    Made the HUD size dependent on the distance to it.
    Made it possible to adjust the distance to the HUD via two bindable keys.

    Any Solutions?
