    I would like to have the shifting option within the car setup screen and saved together with the steering and FF settings:
    Many of us drive the cars with the associated shifting method, it would be a real step forward to save this option for each car. Just did a quick and dirty edit of a screenshot to make clear what i mean.
    Thanks!

    In the topic of Linux, it would be nice to have server software for it. :)

    +1 to this.

    Linux dedicated server software makes everything easier (cheaper, no need to pay a windows license). So game server hosting providers could jump in and offer R3E on their game lists. ;)

    I don't agree, but it's your opinion. Others prefer not to have to pay for a license for an OS that spies on us and restricts our freedom to modify it to our liking. Of course, having to switch to run a couple of games is also quite annoying.

    If you want, I recently write a post on reddit about the current situation of SimRacing on Linux:

    And how is the general force feedback support on Linux? What about third party tools like Fanaleds, CrewChief or SimDash?

    Force Feedback in Linux works only on Logitech Wheels. In some Codemasters titles like F1 2017 and DIRT 4 some wheels and pedals from Fanatec work. About Fanaleds, CrewChief or SimDash I don't have any notice.
    I suppose that this support would come when in Linux you have more support for games. Is the snake biting its own tail.

    That's sad to hear. :(
    I use GIMX to emulate a G27 wheel and play all sorts of arcade racers like Need for Speed Underground 2 with a direct drive wheel. GIMX is available for Linux too so it could be possible to use any wheel with Linux.

    Yeah, I thought the same.

    With this harware you can connect any wheel to your PC and it was detected as G27?

    Basically, it looks like this:
    [​IMG]

    I use WIndows 10 on both computers but I read on the GIMX support forums you can even use a Raspberry Pi for the 2nd computer. The output of the GIMX adapter is seen as a G27 wheel on the main computer that's why I assume it could work with Linux. :)

    I tested it with Gran Turismo 3 and a bunch of other racing games on a PlayStation 2 emulator and believe it or not but even this works with a direct drive wheel. The console thinks it's just a G27. :D

    You have Force Feedback in your cockpit when you use this adapter?

    Yeah, force feedback works with full force and latency/input lag doesn't increase.

    You're asking a small studio to support an OS that not even 1% of the market has. That's your prerogative to use Linux if you refuse to buy into Windows, but you have to also understand that from a small business standpoint it isn't a benficial or probably financially viable for Sector3 to develop support for an OS that realistically speaking almost no one uses.

    I understand that it's expensive to develop a native version of a game, especially for a small business, but there's always the possibility of making it easier to run with compatibility tools like Proton or Wine... that costs rather little.
    Anyway, you should know that seems that the developers have not refused as long as someone is in charge of the project.

    If it is as easy as you said it should be, then it would probably already be a reality. The fact is developing for Lynix is not easy and the market size in an already niche market is not worth wasting resouces on.

    For WTCR: the option in the pit menu to swap rear- and front-tyres. I´ve seen today that they do this in order to get heat into the rear tyres.

    Race weekend customization in the single event and championship. It would be nice to adjust qualys and races according to real series. Possibility to add third race at race weekend and also different number of laps for each race in championship.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned already but i'm not going to go through 62 pages to find out... I'd like to see a hybrid system implemented along with some hybrid lmp1 cars. Yes i know the lmp1's are changing soon but i'd love to have a good 3 or 4 different lmp1 hybrids in game so we can emulate the awesome battles between Audi and Peugeot or Toyota and Porsche.

    In Replay, onboard a camera window showing the player´s pedals/"feet" to see the "input" (clutch, brakes, power).

    Day/night transition, changes in weather would be great.....

    Night racing on RACEROOM would be absolutely phenomenal...don’t forget to turn on the lights.
