    If you use the software in a commercial business and profit from it then you need a commercial license, it's not rocket, you are gaining profit from someone else's IP therefore you pay a commercial royalty, single end users do not profit from it and pay for the sim as is, you are on shaky ground my friend.

    If individual users are logging into their own accounts at a LAN then I see no problem unless it's used for an ESport type event where commercial license would apply as it involves monetary value.

    Hello,

    To clarify, RaceRoom operates on many locations already. Take the Raceroom cafe at the Nurburgring, or the newly opened Raceroom in Moscow, or the soon to open Raceroom at Brands Hatch.

    Those are commercial licenses and use a special version of the software that possesses all the tools you seem to require in your complaints. If you are taking money in any way from those events then it’s definitely uncool.

    You should get in touch with Raceroom about your activities and business plan.

    Visit Raceroom.com and you will find there all the relevant contact information.

    Actually, i'd appreciate if you came forward with a name. Feel free to send me a PM so I can understand what business you bring to RaceRoom.

    You can specify the list of cars with tire pressure. Just 934rsr is missing from the list, but T. Jansen indicated tire pressure in the setup. Also on many cars there is a pressure adjustment (DTM 92, WTCC) does it work?

    The FR X-17 also has tire pressures without being mentioned in the change log.

    We are happy with the updates, wich make the game better and better.
    But for championships it's something not so nice.
    We do a GTR4 championships and we noticed that the car setup is different as for the update.
    And some are not happy that the tire pressure could be turn off in the dedicated server because we handle with different rules in the competition.
    Even we have a championships with fixed setup where the brake balance is activated wich was't before the update. Don't understand me wrong, it's just little things we talked about it
    Keep up the good work

    I am happy to see the addition of the new hud and all. But it would have been better to it integrated. Not the actual hud design, but the "exe" that is needed to make the hud function as well as the option settings suggested for optimal usage. It seems like a simple batch file as part of the startup for Raceroom. Also, somehow add the web host address to the startup options either inside or outside Steam.

    This would help keep Raceroom that rock solid, easy to use the platform I love. Just a thought.

    Keep up the great work

    I presumed the whole point was to open up the shared memory so third party designers can get on and do their thing, if you want to start them together there is a suggestion by @Georg Ortner on how to do this. If it opened automatically you are then closing the door to developers. I get CC to run RR, so I open CC, open dash then start CC, this then gives the option to run any third party apps other than the included dash demo app.

    I see your point. But Raceroom has been the least complicate setup of any PC sim that I have ever tried. I hope that it stays that way. I want to race, not have to constantly tinker with something to get it to work. Being open to addons doesn't mean it is should be complicated. K.I.S.S. usually works best.

    Double clicking 3 times is not hard, :rolleyes: fresh from the mouth of someone who is riddled in arthritis in both hands. Just wait until there are half a dozen apps you want to run at once, fortunately some bright spark will come up with some form of app manager, which of course they can because of the shared memory liberation. ;)

    Its not hard to make a .bat file to launch whatever you need from a single shortcut (as such)

    Here's what I use to load Simhub, Crewhief and Raceroom with triple params and webhud params.

    Raceroom.bat

    Code:
    @echo off
    Start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\SimHubWPF.exe"
    Start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Britton IT Ltd\CrewChiefV4\CrewChiefV4.exe"
    Start "" "C:\Steam\Steam.exe" -gameidlaunch 211500 -triScr 75 0 59.5 33.5 0.6 59.5 33.5 0.6 45 59.5 33.5 0.6 45 1 -webdev -webHudUrl=https://fxuk.github.io/webhud/simhub/1440.html
    
    Initially, I did wish the in-game hud got some TLC, but since using my own simhub dash as an ingame hud instead of 'overlay windows' I'm loving it now :)

    I haven't checked yet, only just thought about it, but would be nice if I could make crewchief auto-start (as in become active) with the raceroom profile, other systems like simhub can autodetect the game and become active, which is handy. So I still have to click start manually in CC at the moment.

    True again, while FxUK and Goose are both correct. I am thinking of those that haven't had the gift of your experience. When I first tried Raceroom, I was in the middle of a battle with Project Cars. It took me 6 months to get it working to a drivable state. Then I saw Raceroom and thought I would give it a try. WOW, I was super pleased with how amazingly well it was put together. I installed it and within 30 minutes (probably less, but it has been a while) of the install and I was up and not only driving, but racing!!!

    I wanted to keep it simple and clean. In hopes that the team over at Sector3Studios will continue to awesome work! Too many complications would make it less attractive in my eyes. When I have time, I want to race. Not tinker for months. Plus for those that aren't aware of all the cool add-ons, they miss out. I like the batch file idea by the way. Thank you, I will probably use it. But if it is that simple, why can't in already be included as the startup exe? Maybe have a front end that has radio buttons for the frequently used apps that has a customizable list. Goose's app manager but included in the Raceroom platform. That way you aren't locking new apps out. Just a thought.
