Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by David Dominguez, May 19, 2012.

  1. Welcome to the 4th race of the FSR 2012 World Trophy season at Monaco! You will find the password for this event by logging on GPCOS and looking at the password field which is next to the server's IP address.

    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:
    • Remember to read the updated 2012 rules package from here
    • Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, as described in the pre-race and post-race procedures
    • A pre-qualifying session is organized and is mandatory for all drivers out of the top 10 (see the schedule and listings below)
    • Grid 2 is NOT organized (less than 36 allocated drivers).
    Following drivers have gained the right to participate in Pre-Qualifying:

    Pre-qualifying (27):

    Penalties to apply:

    License Status:


    The Pre-Qualifying session will be 10 minutes in length, split in two sessions. The sessions will be run in Private mode without Parc Ferme. The sessions will also be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running. The top 19 from Pre-Qualifying will make it in to Grid 1.

    The Free Practice session will be 10 minutes in length. Every participating driver should join as soon as possible after the server opens to make sure that they don't miss the start of Qualifying and also to make sure that their game is configured & working properly.

    Qualifying will be split to two sessions (10 + 5 minutes). Both sessions will run in non-private mode (all cars will be visible on track at the same time). Qualifying 1 will be run with free setup while Qualifying 2 has Parc Ferme enforced. Parc Ferme will only allow you to change your fuel load, tire compound, engine boost, engine brakemap, front wing angle, steering lock, brake balance and brake pressure after the session is over, so make sure you have your race setup loaded when entering Qualifying 2. Qualifying 2 session will be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running.

    The Warmup session will be 10 minutes in length. You can drive freely in the Warmup session to try to get a feel for the heavier car after qualifying on low fuel.

    The Race will be 59 laps long. Drive safely during the race, especially at the start and the first lap in general.

    Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.

    The unlucky Finn

    Cool, we're driving at China again? :D
  3. I've only just regained my internet connection, so my allocation was submitted after the midnight deadline. Am I still able to race?
  4. Hope to be in top 21, cause sucks not enough people for a grid 2 race :/
  5. Don't know if anyone else is getting a problem with simsync. When I try to update, it gives a 25 MB update. I start it and it gets to around 17MB left and it says sync finished. I load the game but it doesn't load the monaco map cause the full download wasn't complete. Is it a problem with the sync or what? I deleted the monaco track from gamedata, waited a few minutes and ran it again but get the same problem
  6. Many writes about it in another thread, but i was lucky to get it before it started to make errors, maybe to many trying to update at same time?
  7. hmm i cant either, tells me i dont error in texture matrial ?
  8. Works for me now, when i dl the mas file manuel.
  9. David - its doing it again - on race day for WHATEVER REASON if i start simsync, it wants to download THE ENTIRE MOD. I duno wtf to do.

    it did the same thing last race, and fortunately someone sent me the files i needed.

    if i try and update a few days later after the race...its fine, and only downloads wats needed.

    now i get error opening common mas file.
  10. I have no idea, as it usually works fine for everybody. Maybe you should contact the Simsync developer.
  12. Need password for server?? Gpos website is down :/
