New content:
  • BMW M235i Racing


  • Lowered default minimum force setting for Thrustmaster wheels.
  • Fixed Slow Down penalty calculations on turbocharged cars
  • Fixed cut detection logic on tracks with pitlane close to the track like Laguna Seca where simple cuts would result in disproportionate penalties.

  • Change so the pitlane speed information overlay always shows when inside the pitlane.

  • Fixed some data displays showing a ticker counting up to 0 at race starts.
  • Fixed an invalid lap overlay that was sometimes showing without any text.
  • Added a button to view the leaderboards upon finishing a hillclimb run so we could get rid of the non elegant solution of showing the position bar to inform the player of his position.
  • Changed the logic for the “Restart” button in leaderboards & competitions so it no longer purges your best lap and can still show the live time diff to your ghost on the data display.
  • Fixed a message wrongly stating the next lap would be invalidated in Hillclimb runs.
  • Fixed an issue where the HUD elements would sometimes be moved when coming back from an instant replay.
  • Fixed a crash occuring sometimes when cycling through cameras in the pitlane.
  • Game now aborts start-up if no display adapter resolution was found.
  • Added a dedicated server setting to set a latency limit (in milliseconds). Any player caught consistently above that limit will be automatically booted.
    Added a dedicated server setting to force the race to end after a set time (in seconds). When set to OFF, the server will always wait for a race winner.
  • Fixed an issue where the dedicated server would sometimes not wait for late joiners to complete their loading sequence and proceed to next session anyway.
  • Fixed a case where disconnected players would sometimes remain visible on the HUD track map.

Known Issues:
- Hockenheimring: Some of the curbs are not rendered when using high track level of detail.
- The new Flag Rule Settings are not available for MP.

We will release a hotfix patch tomorrow to fix these issues along with few more.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.
