    Hello !

    Yesterday we deployed a (pretty big, sorry) patch for RaceRoom Racing Experience.


    Here's the changelog of this update:

    - Fixed an issue where some machines would fail to play the intro videos correctly
    - Fixed a rare case where the game would fail to recognize the user's account
    - Fixed the bug where final gearbox ratio was incorrect when using Amateur driving model
    - Updated EGFIS localization
    - Fix for a backend error "4294967295"

    Portal:

  2. Shame you guys still dint include a little Read Me explaining what the diffrent levels of FFB do. Its been requested quite a few times by the community allready ..

    Apart from that nice update.
     
  3. 6GB update and still no multiplayer or even just singleplayer racing . . . I wont be driving let alone buying content without these elements.

  5. Still downloading the patch (does 6GB even qualify as a patch :) )

    I too will not buy content without the single player enabled so I can see how good the AI is. However if the AI is good and competitive then I will happly buy content

    Keep at it guys!!! Any thought how long before single race is implemented? Will it have a Quali session too?
     
  6. It is probably a new build/patch with new content. You can race some AI now in practice mode - just keep in mind that they are adaptive and will learn from your driving and pace. You do need to restart sessions in order for them to progress though.
     
  7. yes but currently the AI are too slow on the straights and you can just drive by even though their lap time is close to mine (no set up changes)

    I was hoping to see something along the lines of :

    Rewritten the FFB code from scratch.

    Seriously simbin, you have disappointed me with these canned effects and the bad overall feeling.
     
  9. R3E has some of the best FFB of any sim to date using the G25 but, the setup required is anything but typical.

  10. Yeah no complaints about FFB with T500 either. Needed some tweaking from my part tho, but it's quite good now.

    I have tried the setup you are referring to, i still think its too unresponsive compared to GSC for example.

    Edit: I really want to love this game but GSC has set the standard for FFB too high.
    Also, love the sounds, proper animalistic sounds :D

    you could always try opening the controller files and copying the gsc settings across ... if you dont understand what im talking about repost and ill explain fully : this wont give you the exact feel but may give you a feel closer to what you want

    I understand what you mean, to be honest i haven't tried this yet. Can you please tell me what are the file names i need to edit?
    You think that if i use my logitech profiler's profile for GSC that ill get the same feeling??
    I doubt it but i am willing to try :)

    You Have to change these settings from GSC in the R3E controlset.
    [ Force Feedback ]
    FFB Device Type="1" // Type of FFB controller: 0=none 1=wheel, 2=stick/custom, 3=rumble pad.

    FFB Ignore Controllers="0" // Do not use FFB on: 1=controller1, 2=controller2, 4=controller3 (or add values to ignore multiple controllers)
    FFB Throttle FX on steer axis="1" // 0 = Throttle effects on throttle axis, 1 = throttle effects on steering axis.
    FFB Brake FX on steer axis="1" // 0 = Brake effects on brake axis, 1 = brake effects on steering axis.
    FFB steer vibe freq mult="0.20000" // Controls frequency of steering vibration. Recommended: 0.5 to 1.0, 0.0 disables steering vibration.
    FFB steer vibe zero magnitude="0.03500" // Magnitude of steering vibration at 0mph (reference point).
    FFB steer vibe slope="0.00000" // Slope of line defining magnitude as a function of frequency (used with FFB steer vibe zero magnitude).

    FFB steer force prediction="0.00100" // Time into the future that force is predicted, to help counteract wheel latency (0.0 to disable)
    FFB steer force max change="100.00000" // Maximum change per second based on current difference between calculated and applied force, to help avoid jerky behavior (values under 15 or so should reduce jerkiness, 100 disables)
    FFB steer force neutral range="0.04500" // Max distance from center "neutral force" location where forces are reduced to help avoid oscillation (0.0 to disable)
    FFB steer force neutral function="0.00000" // Function to apply near neutral force location, in order to tune out FFB "deadzone" but keeping oscillations in check: 0.0=original, 1.0=new
    FFB steer force exponent="0.80000" // Steering force output "sensitivity". Range 0.0 to infinity. 0.0 to 1.0 = higher sensitivity, greater than 1.0 = lower sensitivity.

    FFB steer force grip function="0.55000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0 (previous hardcoded value was 1.0) - lower values will make steering force decrease LATER as front tire grip is lost - try 0.3
    FFB steer force grip weight="0.90000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0, recommended: 0.4 to 0.9. How much weight is given to tire grip when calculating steering force.
    FFB steer force grip factor="0.40000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0, recommended: 0.2 to 0.6 (previously hardcoded to 0.4). How much of a factor the front wheel grip is on the steering weight.
    FFB steer front grip fract="0.00000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0 (previous hardcoded value was 0.0), additional effect of front grip loss on steering force
    FFB steer update threshold="0.00000" // Amount of change required to update steer force/vibe (0.0 - 1.0). Lower values = steering force updated more frequently = lower frame rate.
    FFB steer friction coefficient="0.17500" // Coefficient to use for steering friction. Range: -1.0 to 1.0
    FFB steer friction saturation="1.00000" // Saturation value to use for steering friction. Range: 0 - 1.0

    FFB throttle vibe update thresh="0.08000" // Amount of change required to update throttle vibe (0.0 - 1.0)
    FFB brake vibe freq mult="0.90000" // Scales actual brake rotational frequency to force feedback vibration frequency.

    On a serious note, i did make the changes Peter suggested, but what about the logitech profiler? Should i use the GSC settings also?
     
  17. I think you can't get a similar FFB in R3E by just copying the GSC parameters. GSC is using RealFeel and the plugin generally doesn't care about the FFB parameters in your controller file.
     
  18. My broadband isn't good enough to be downloading 6GB updates!!!

    I think I'll leave R3E until it's a little more complete if patches/updates are going to be so big:(.
     
  19. I just drove the BMW 635csi in the "Try before you buy" competition and I think the handling is better than before now. The onboard sound is also much better now:

    Compare
    (before)

    and
    (after)
     
  20. Is there a changelog for yesterdays update..?
