    Highlights of this update include:


    • Formula RaceRoom US is available!

    • VR updates

    • First appearance of new data displays

    • Various track updates


    Game:

    • Shared Memory: Added information on upcoming flag system, updated minor version number. Flag system is currently awaiting UI implementation and made unavailable to players.

    • Shared Memory: Changed how tire wear is reported so it matches the tire wear text in data displays (1.0-0.0 range when tire wear was between 1.0-0.94).

    • Added support for starting the game on any detected screen. The option resides in General Video Settings. Fullscreen changes are only applying after a game restart.

    • Fixed an issue with updating a profile avatar with the game in fullscreen where the dialogue box would appear behind the game

    • Added a possible fix for a rare case where only the car shadow of a car would be rendered after switching focus from car to car or from camera set to another

    • Implemented Reputation System that will run and track player incidents. This is in alpha stage and we’re gathering data in the background. Nothing will be visible for players just yet.

    • Fixed bug where opponents session data sometimes caused championship files to be broken due to conflicting ids.

    • Fixed so the game doesn't crash when trying to load championships affected by the bug above.

    • Fixed issue with game window using the wrong style when going from fullscreen to windowed in a resolution that's lower than the default resolution.

    • Fixed a menu issue with percentage stepper buttons not being enabled when switching from minimum<->maximum allowed values.

    • Broadcast : Fixed a case where camera selection requests were resulting in the game cycling through cameras instead.

    • Added an upper deadzone setting for the throttle axis in advanced controller settings.

    • Fixed an issue with DRS getting disabled before the race ends in timed based race sessions.

    • Fixed an issue where the race was starting without the player if Race Monitor was clicked instead of “Drive” at race start.

    • Fixed an issue where the DRS wing animation would remain deployed after the race.

    • Fixed an issue where on certain tracks the result timing was showing A.I. cars doing an extra lap.

    • Made lap times go invalid if player is speeding in the pitlane, so you can’t get fastest lap that way. New HUD overlay to signal it. (Stowe Long is a good example of where pitlane could be exploited to shortcut the first chicane)

    • Fixed a crash that happened in Single Player championships if the player clicked the pit preset button and then the continue to next race button before game entered the pit preset menu.


    Multiplayer:

    • Fixed the issue where a player's contact shadow was being left on the track after disconnecting from the server.

    • Fixed an issue where a time penalty for a non performed drivethrough had no effect on results.

    • Formula RaceRoom 2 and Formula RaceRoom US have a special pitting system allowing them to perform fast pitstops.

    • Reduced bigly the probability of stress induced mistakes by AI’s
    • Fixed an issue where AI’s were accumulating stress by being followed by an opponent in the pitlane.

    • AI’s now ignore cars in the pitlane entrance lane if they’re not on it themselves.

    • Improved AI navigation in the pitlane.

    • Fixed an issue where AI would never start a qualifying lap around Nordschleife 24H when fuel multipliers were enabled.

    • Fixed so only damaged AI or AI’s on their inlap will use the Nordschleife VLN / 24H pitlane entrance by the start/finish straight

    What’s New (Summary)
    • Flags

    • WTCC 2016
    Game:

    • Changed so upon finishing a race with a slowdown penalty still active, the player will receive a penalty of 30 seconds added to his final result.

    • Fixed issue with video options breaking when switching monitors with same resolution but different refresh rates.

    • Changed so the slowdown time penalty you receive now factors in the actual track distance you have skipped to fix issue with finishing without receiving a penalty for cutting.

    • Fixed issue with time of day setting not applying for race 2 and 3.

    • Fixed so slowdown cannot reach more seconds than post race penaltytime.

    • Xbox One controller profile: Swapped shift down and drs buttons so they match the 360 controller button layout.

    • Fixed Xbox One controller vibration issue.

    • Fixed so headlights now strobe for 2 sec when button is clicked, or continuously if held.

    • Shadow splits are now always enabled.

    • Tweaked rumble pad/xinput ffb by disabling high speed constant rumble (steer force), rumble on grass and gravel (covered by slip effects) and engine vibrations.

    • Added session length format to shared memory. (if the session is time based, lap based or time+lap based).

    • Increased shared memory minor version to 5.

    • Various tweaks and fixes to data displays


    VR:

    • Support for displaying VR sessions on a monitor. (New control to map : “VR Toggle Monitor view”)
      Note: What's displayed on the monitor is a cropped copy of the left eye render for the VR headset. The crop avoids including the eye's hidden area mask and maintains the monitor window's aspect ratio. The overlays (menus, etc.) are rendered flatly on top of the cropped VR eye render.

    • The mouse cursor is no longer shown on the monitor window unless the game is set to show the VR session on the monitor.



    Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI:

    Art:

    • WTCC TC1 cars : New driver animation

    • Switched Macau light setting to same as Paul Ricard.

    • Bathurst - removed tirewall blocker in mountain chicane

    • Zolder - Fixed weird bushes and smoothed track bumps a bit further

    Portal & Backend:

    • Changed Leaderboard divisions to work on a percentage based system.
    Division 1 0.00% 2.00% of best laptime.
    Division 2 2.00% 4.00%,
    Division 3 4.00% 6.00%
    Division 4 6.00% 8.00%,
    Division 5 8.00% 10.00%,
    Division 6 10.00% 12.00%

    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.

    • Updated the Audi TT cup handling after feedback from Philip Ellis. More biting in the front at turn in, and looser rear under braking.

    • Fixed a glitch where code would report some RPM when ignition was on but engine wasn’t running.

    • Fixed an issue where code would briefly lock up all four wheels in certain cars when control is handed from AI to player (ie: rolling & leaderboard starts)

    - Fixed issue with long loading times.

    Known issue: If a player leaves in race 1, other players will end up in black screen after session switch into race 2. We are investigating the problem but in the meantime we suggest you avoid multi format races if possible.
