    BTW, it would seem the option "Enable driver names" can not really be disabled. I've done a race in AMS yesterday and tonight in R3E with the option unchecked and in both cases, CC was still using driver names (at least for example when someone crashed - "it seems like XY binned it" - or retired from the race, but possibly in other situations as well).

    Thanks for the heads up, obviously it's not a feature that gets much testing. I'll fix it for the next rel

    Hi all,
    I have a big issue :( , not sound . I downloaded it + update with green buttons + set up with .exe. I put the volume background on 0 and other volume on max. When I click on start , I don't have any sound and in the game not more.
    When I put the volume background on the medium , I have a small sound but it's inapprehensible. I tried with others mans , it's the same.
    Thank you for your help :)

    Hi Jim. Is there any way to edit the controller list ? I have 3 button boxes and they're all listed as the same name ; makes it difficult when trying to bind a function. Thanks

    Oh btw I tried to register for your website and it gives me an error page.

    The forum has been slow of late, we get metric fckton of spam attacks (bots and crawlers going nuts on the site). Dunno why - perhaps the app was rude to the wrong nerd. Anyway, it might be related to registration issues, I'll poke Morten.

    Regarding button boxes, I'll see if there's anything in the input API I can add to disambiguate and ensure the list is ordered consistently. No promises tho, because this is a problem that falls into the "boring" category ;)

    Jim, is it possible to ask the chief, how many fuel I need for 40 Minutes or something like that? And if yes, how could I do that? I have a button to speak to him and pitstop confirmation works good, So this would be a nice addition for me.

    Ask "how much fuel for 40 minutes" or "how.much fuel for 20 laps" or whatever, after you've done 3 or more flying laps. When asking about fuel needed for a number of minutes on longer tracks, the result can be a bit inaccurate, but for most cases it's about right.

    Also, remember that you'll need to allow for up to 1 extra lap in timed races because the race doesn't finish exactly when the timer reaches zero - you finish the lap you're on. The app won't make this adjustment for you so if the race is 40 minutes and the average laptime is 2 minutes, you need to as "how much fuel for 42 minutes", or maybe a little more as the estimate might not be 100% accurate

    I use the command voice to request a pit stop.
    Before, when I enter pit, secquency of commands acept the pit stop. But now, secquency of commands cancel pit stop.
    Can you help me?

    It shouldn't be possible to cancel the stop when you enter the pitlane - this was removed in the last game update. Are you requesting a pitstop then allowing the app the execute the confirm stop macro automatically?

    just tested it, and it works fine for me.

    Are you sure your in-game key bindings match the key-bindings in the saved_command_macros.json file? See http://thecrewchief.org/showthread.php?263-Command-key-press-macros&p=2378&viewfull=1#post2378 for more info.

    If that doesn't work, make sure you're on the latest R3E version - steam should have auto-updated you but there seem to have been a few issues here. Right-click the game in Steam, select 'local files' and 'verify integrity of game files'. Some folks have also deleted the rrre64.exe file from Game/x64/ folder before doing this, to force Steam to update to the latest version.

    MACRO: Pressing keys KEY_S, KEY_S, KEY_S, KEY_S, KEY_S, KEY_S, KEY_S, KEY_E, Pause 3000 milliseconds, KEY_Q
    I think work correctly without one KEY_S.
    Thank you for your patience.

    'S' moves the cursor down, and with the latest R3E version it doesn't wrap back to the top when it reaches the bottom, so pressing it lots of times is safe because it means I know the bottom menu item will be highlighted. And 'confirm pit actions' is always the bottom item, so this should work. Unless I'm missing something?

    I edit saved_command_macros.json without one KEY_S. now work all correctly. But I think my game don't update to the latest version, because I can cancel pit. I'll reinstal tomorrow

    Thank you for your work and patience.

    Delete that file and run the integrity check, don't bother reinstalling the whole game
