September 12

RaceRoom has been updated

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYarH65tS6A


Highlights of this update:
  • Imola is now available
  • Warmup sessions are now an option on dedicated servers
  • Tire compounds for Formula RaceRoom X-17 and U.S.

Game:
  • Reduced Join Lags in multiplayer
  • Fixed car-to-car collisions that could sometimes have “magnetic” effects of either repulsion or attraction.
  • Results files generated by the dedicated server now include car class information and results per class.
  • Added warmup option to dedicated servers. When multiple race sessions are enabled, a warmup will be taking place before each of them.
  • Sessions such as free practice, leaderboard challenge, competitions, “try before you buy” are now set to last much longer than anyone could reasonably have a need for (24 hours)
  • Decision to inflict Stop and Go and Drive Through penalties is now more lenient.
  • Slow Down penalties will no longer increase once the player has triggered the automatic slow down of his car.
  • Wall Riding prevention no longer triggers if player is applying pressure on the brakes at the moment of impact.
  • Graphic options : Car reflections can now be set to Low, Medium or High. High has smoother moving reflections, at the price of some performance.
  • Improved AI decision making in pitstops when it comes to tire wear and changing tires.
  • Cases like Hillclimb Icons where there are only 2 liveries in total no longer result in AI all picking the same car.
  • Custom Championship default naming now includes the car class name instead of just the date and time.
  • Resetting the car on the track now takes the raceline in consideration to avoid placing a car right on the ideal line.
  • Added variables for tire compounds in shared memory.
  • Made the “near pitlane” speed overlay warning only show up if player has requested a pitstop. Should prevent accidental occurrences on tracks where the pitlane entry is close to the ideal raceline (ie Salzburgring).
  • Added a default profile for Fanatec 2.5 wheelbase.

  • Fixed a short freeze of the game that was occuring when setting a faster lap in time attack modes.
  • Fixed a typo in a driver name “Roberto Ravaglia” (DTM 92)
  • Fixed an issue with Hockenheim alternative layouts that did not have a defined amount of turns and were messing up ranking/safety rating calculations and results in general.
  • Fixed an issue with the opponents revlimiter being too low on replays recorded in multiplayer that included a Formula RaceRoom X-17
  • Fixed an issue with cursor becoming invisible when using Mouse Steering and coming back from an instant replay.
  • Fixed an issue where player could see the menu disappear when clicking on the timing screen right at the moment of a session switch.
  • Fixed an issue where the pitlane speed overlay would remain visible on screen when finishing a race by driving through the pitlane.
  • Fixed an issue where mouse scrolling in certain menu pages wasn’t working after moving the window or changing the resolution of the game.
  • Fixed an issue with the fuel gauge in the BMW M235i Racing that could sometimes be lighting on and off.
  • Fixed an issue with the data display in the Formula RaceRoom X-17 where it would state P2P instead of DRS in Time Attack modes.
  • Fixed an issue where players could sometimes end up in Garage phase (prior to race) without having the menu visible.
  • Fixed an issue where the player’s car would sometimes use the min/max steering lock values of the previously loaded car.
  • Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes load the low detailed version of the cockpit on top of the high detailed version.
  • Fixed an issue where exiting from an instant replay while in free camera would result in a mouse cursor being visible on top of the gameplay.

Sound, Physics & AI:
  • Audi R18 : Fixed the default driving camera that was too high
  • BMW M235i Racing : New cockpit sounds, louder, grittier, gruntier.
  • Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3 : Fixed the rearview in triple screen resolutions
  • Formula RaceRoom U.S. : 2 compounds are now available. Primary and Alternate. AI behavior and speed tweaks.
  • Formula RaceRoom X-17 : 3 compounds are now available. Soft, Medium and Hard. AI behavior and speed tweaks.

  • Chang International : updated cut detection rules
  • Nordschleife : tweaked a TV camera at Aremberg that could go behind an advertisement board.
  • Spa-Francorchamps : Fixed a TV camera that was set behind ADAC advertisement banners on Kemmel straight when driving GT Masters 2015 cars.
  • Suzuka : Fixed a cut detection around the pitlane entry of the GP layout where you could get a cut while only driving near the pitlane path.

Art:
  • BMW 134 Judd - New driver animation
  • BMW M6 GT3 : improved the yellow headlights visuals
  • Chevrolet Daytona Prototype : New driver animation
  • DMD P20 : New driver animation
  • Mistral M530 : New driver animation

August 17

RaceRoom has been updated (Hotfix)

Game:

Reviews

“There's the accessibility, and the way it's just as satisfying to play on a cheap pad as it is on an expensive wheel set-up; how the handling is translated sublimely through both. And what handling it is, spread out across a delicious range of thoroughbred racing cars: there are the DTM cars, with their downforce and low-slung lines, that only seem one step removed from the hi-tech of F1, or their WTCC cousins that bounce over kerbs with the kiddish enthusiasm of a go-kart.”
EUROGAMER

“The sounds, the looks, the feel, it all comes together to form something that is simply a high quality product. Whether you play only the free content, or you buy it all, there is no question that this sim is worth the download.”
