    So I finally got the time to see what the fuss was all about! :D

    I love the new, bigger backfires for DTM and G5 cars!! (the backfires didn't reflect on the road at Mid Ohio though)

    And the sound.. . THE SOUUOND!! MUAHAHahaaaaa!!! :smiley::tongueout:
    I kid you not, I took the Zakspeed for a ride at Mid Ohio.
    And I got goosebumps from my hands all the way up in my neck on the long straight, and I actually got a tear to my eye!! :flushed::cry::tearsofjoy:
    Now that is a good review to the sound department, thank you Anthony for making the most awesome sound ever heard in a game!! :)


    I also love that it's now possible to make false starts!
    But I do miss the option for random time of day when making championships, and also mandatory pit stops.
    But great work with this patch S3!!


    I will now go out and test the new AI a bit more, and possibly cry a bit hearing different car sounds!:cool:

    I had the chance to quickly access this morning and I only saw the menus: response looks pretty good now! Almost seamless! Can't wait to try the real stuff! Bloody job... :mad:

    Good job S3S, really a good job. Seems that it will be important implement a filter in the multiplayer window. Now is difficult to find anything among so many possibilities.

    I really like that the engine is switched off when starting a practice session or returning to the garage. Before the patch, i had the ignition and starter assigned to some random keys. But now there is finally a use for them. That's great!!! It's one of those small and often underestimated details that make a game more realistic.

    Gentlemen, start your engines (...literally!!)! :D

    Just had a strange one on start line at Nurburgring, lights went out and refused to find a gear.
    Also had cars appearing on map but invisible or non existent on track.
    Suffered a blinking on/off Audi R8 at Monza, most off putting.
    Can't set up a dedicated server, just stops mid startup.
    The new sounds are absorbing, anything G5 just ends up in the wall as to busy nodding and smiling at the soundtrack!

    Thank you for fixing the error 503! At least for me :). I don't know if it still is causing trouble for other players, but hopefully it's gone.
    I tried out the new update with a 15 min AI-race at Hockenheim, DTM 2013. And I agree - the sound is great. No stutter, great graphics. The only problem is still the AI. They have no idea where you are at the track. They wave all over the track and hit you hard. Especially side to side. I got T-boned several times in the hairpin. Still something for devs to work on.
    Also on wishlist is AI skills should be more mixed so they don't just follow each other. And occasionly they make mistakes and/or get mechanical problems so they have to pit.
    But I had a nice race and could grab first place, 6 secs before AI. Ok, it was difficulty 90. But I'm an old man (66 yrs), so it's good for being me.

    My little saying on the update: :hearteyes::hearteyes::hearteyes:
    For sure bugs will get ironed out asap for all users!

    Thanks for the additional liveries, especially the GT300 "Works" BMW Z4 Steiff one from Super GT..
    Hope this is a subtle hint leading towards more Super GT-content in the feature!

    And thanks for everything already summed up by the community! And still more to come :D:eek::D

    Count me as another wondering if issue in fixed. Im checking this forum every break i get at work to see whats going on. Lookong forward to trying this badboy out!

    In the meantime, been checking out iracing (yes, i have been under a rock)...good but its a different type of immersion than r3e...feels real but less impressive and heart pounding as a total package when driving.

    I must say that I am impressed by the new Transmission Model and the sounds (I have a 7.1 hifi surround system) are simply amazing. Turned up subwoofer and WOW!

    S3S guys are doing a great job and to be honest, I was a little unhappy for such long time without update, but I must say that it worth the wait.

    For those of you with doubts about this simulator, don’t be anymore, it’s turning into a great racing plataform. Go for it! I have all the packs and no regrets. Great job S3S!

    So what people think of the AI now? In DTM 2014 I don't notice much differance...I am following a driver ahead, I can't drive anyfaster since then I will hit the car ahead, but the car behind just bump into me and push me out. So can't say I have to brake later since that was not possible, and you never see a AI driver hit another AI driver like that...

    But the rest of the update is simply amazing!

    Hmmm, still having some problems though!

    When I start R3E, it stops with "hit any key" and freezes. I have to log off to be able to use the computer again.
    A workaround is, I start R3E, and instantly start my task manager. This makes the game go through and I can play.
    Bit strange.....

    The Multiplayer is having a Code 13, I guess everybody is trying the dedi servers?
    Systems stop when overloaded...

    I get the same issue stuck at a screen when a message say "hit any key" even I press a key nothing go further and I must to close my windows session to be able to close Steam client aswell. Just before that I uninstalled the whole game via steam and reinstalled again totally without my steam DLC "experience 2013". I couldn't test multiplayer at this time cause the game doesn't start.

    The menus are so much faster and nicer, sounds are even better, improved AI, clutch finally works perfectly, new transmission physics are great, dedicated servers will draw more people to multiplayer, several small bugs seem to be sorted out, and I'm absolutely loving the new liveries for the Volvo 240, so I will just quote my daughter (11): O-M-G!

    This is definately heading the right way.

    In my opinion only a couple of things are now missing before this could be called a complete game. :)

    The AI is using them, but they're not in the store...yet.
