    I know what you mean, I have the same reservations, but formally you need no FB account (I have none) to get Oculus running. There is also a tool to switch it off if you do not need it. I did not stumble over any software linking done by oculus, to Facebook. They ofer it for you to voluntarily do so, but I rejected that.

    Of course Facebook collects the data from Oculus. Thats why they bought it. But since I have o FB profile, and enver had, and block them, and do on this wiudnows 10 system only games, everything else on a different system with Linux, my privatesphere is relatively still existent.

    Oculus costs are such that some people spend more money on triple screens or even just a single 100 Hz or multisynch monitor.

    Here are my FFB values in AC, their basis are official Kunos recommendation from some longer time ago, and from there I made some minor changes.

    [​IMG]

    I recall that "Filter" at the top can make a huge difference already with changes of one unit. Note that I have canned effects at the bottom left all to very minimal settings.

    I now use a Fanatec CSL elite PS4, which has a very robust motor. But I used basically the same settings before with a Logitech G27. Only Strength at the top I had a bit stronger, and Filter a bit lesser I think, 7 or 5.

    With these settings I have a formidable feeling for what the car does, and for the ttrack below the tyres, better than in any other sim, if I am honest. Only RR's GT3 cars get somewhat close. Not the same, but close.

    I didn't spend a lot for my screen :p

    But, I already blocked all facebook domains in my host file, so don't really know if it would work or not. So, I didn't buy.
    Thank you for your screenshot, I will look at it when I have more time (not before next year :'( )

    If the numbers prove helpful for you, the better. Originally I gave them for the FFB confusion by TonyJ. :)

    don't forget WTCC (2017) from R3E, these cars are awesome and don't exist in AC.
    And yes R3E's GT3 are very nice too :)

    The WTCCs are front wheelers, and that is why they feel so different from other cars in RR.

    Hope the FFB remarks help you with AC.

    Ah, the Huracan...



    Brutality concealed in an extremely slick, elegant dress. Brute force in motion. Whenever I drive the Huracan (street version) there already is in AC, it feels like driving a cruise missile on wheels. Only a few cars in AC let you feel raw power this clearly. One of my favourites. There is just some animalistic satisfaction in driving this beast. Wonderful.

    Talk-'n-drive with Aristotelis (AC physics) on the cars of the upcoming DLC, and Laguna Seca. The (laserscanned) track seems to be contrasting quite a bit from other versions in other sims, due to them having included the especially flat camber of the track in most of its corners. Sounds to be a challenging beast.

    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/210680226##

    I would like to overhear a conversation between Aristotelis Vesilakos and Alex Hodgkinson on how they approach physics and what their philosphies are for modelling car behaviour, after they had consummed so much vino togetehr that they woudl forget for an hour or two that they are working for rivallin companies. :) These two have done the two most impressive physics works I have ever seen myself in any racing game I ever played, I think it could be exciting if they trade their thoughts and explanations of why they do what, and how. :)

    Does anybody know what happened to the weather option? It does not appear and all my races are in cloudy or very cloudy.

    Can't say the new cars interest me (disappointed the T33 isn't the racing version to take on the GT40, 908 and P4), but can't wait to try a new track!

    Are you talking about multi-player or single-player?

    Weather is working just fine here too.

    Are you using a weather mod? If so, try removing it.

    Otherwise, go to your main Assetto Corsa file folder > content > weather... then delete whatever is in there and verify the integrity of the game cache in Steam. Steam will redownload the weather files. The official ones are numbered 1 through 7, so if you already have all 7, you might not need to do this... but if nothing else works, it's an idea to try.

    Hope for real problems we cannot solve here, lies in the official Kunos forums. ;) I cannot imagine your issue to be one without a solution.

    Small patch brings AC to version 1.16.1. Few things adressed, mainly with Laguna Seca, amongst them fixing some AI issue with the cork screw.

    I will try the suggestions thanks. I don't like Kunos forums, I rather keep away from there, it's not like I'm that eager to play it. ;)

    Fixed! :)
    It turned out there was a lot of extra files in weather folder, I'm pretty sure they came with some mod.
