    Time for something different - 2 ... introducing the next big thing in our Friendly Events, the brand new Audi Sport TT Cup machine,



    Wait? What is this?

    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Assetto Corsa, keyboard, console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you on the online track (for the first time) and giving you a great experience and making you a better driver.

    Make sure to be on time for the extended practice session and have teamspeak installed and be with us for the full length of the event. This is the longest session of almost an hour to get familiar with the car and the track. That's right, you don't need to practice offline first. You can come by fully unprepared :)

    After practice we skip to qualification to decide the racing order and do a short fun race of only 30 minutes so everybody can return to their wives, girlfriends, mom in time.

    Who can join?
    All premium members using their REAL NAME in the forum, servers and teamspeak

    Push to Pass (P2P) - the Kers button makes this work.
    The Audi TT cup car uses the 2.0 TFSI from the Audi TTS. The four-cylinder engine delivers 228kW (310hp) in the production model and accelerates the TTS from 0 to 100km/h in 4.7 seconds. By means of a so-called Push-to-pass function, the drivers can briefly boost the engine's output by 22kW (30hp) for overtaking manoeuvres by pushing a button on the steering wheel. A blue lamp in the windshield indicates the boost activation. LEDs in the rear side windows show how many times the driver can still use the additional power. The number of available boosts is defined by the regulations.

    Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a direct-shift dual-clutch transmission. The six-speed S tronic, which has been specifically tuned for use in racing, is operated by shift paddles on the steering wheel. Accordingly, the Audi TT cup only has two pedals, used for acceleration and braking.

    I advise all drivers to have this App
    Version 0.6 Apr 3, 2016

    Click ME for direct link

    [​IMG]
    Installation
    Download the the zip file attached to this post. Extract/unzip the content to your assettocorsa directory, e.g. in Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa
    The content will extract itself to app\python\helicorsa (for the app) and content\gui\icons (for the icons).
    You can overwrite older version without problem.

    Now start assetto corsa and enable the 'helicorsa' app in the settings/general:
    [​IMG]
    Then start a session. Once you sit in the cockpit, move the mouse to the right in order to show the app sidebar. Scroll down until you find this symbol
    [​IMG]
    and click it. You will notice a window will show up, drag it wherever you want to start out. You will notice it will vanish after 5 seconds (you can still drag it). If you have problems to find it, just hide and re-show the app via the sidebar.
    It will remain completly unvisible until you are moving, and there's a nearby car (also moving) - short: it will only be there if needed.

    Hint: If it doesn't vanish after you moved the window around, re-open it again. It won't do this next time you start the game.

    If your still unsure please see our instruction video or give me a shout.

    I have addidtional wish to all of the folks on TS.
    PLEASE USE "PUSH TO TALK" IN TS OPTIONS.
    Not "Voice activation", because to many times the mic turn on when you all fight with the wheel or "intensively" breath. I do not want to mention other weird noises. :D

    This makes "focus mode" harder to activate, and I don't want to mute everybody! :p

    I agree! It can be quite disturbing haha
    My solution for that: I use a mic arm that is mounted on my table (wheel is on a wheel stand, no vibrations to the mic) and the mic is on the side of my head, pointed to my mouth and away from the wheel.
    To trigger the voice activation I have to speak really loud. Works perfectly :)
