RaceRoom Racing Experience has been updated today, with plenty of updates and improvements added including additional attention to the VR element of the simulation. Keeping to a proposed schedule of roughly one update release per month to the core game experience within R3E, Sector3 Studios have today deployed another sizable patch to the simulation that addresses several outstanding issues as well as adding some interesting new functionality such as a new delta display, VR and multiplayer improvements and various tweaks to the AI files at selected tracks. The new update is not without issues however, as Sector3 have acknowledged that the Hockenheim track is missing curbs in some sections of the track and the new flag rule settings have not yet been applied to the multiplayer side of the software. The studio expect to rectify both of these issues with a further hotfix update to be released tomorrow. Check out the full June 2017 changelog below: Game: 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. Game now invalidates both current and next laps in qualifying sessions, leaderboards and competitions if the player goes off track or wall rides in the last corners of a track. Made brake disks pre-heated when starting a Time Attack session VR: Bloom and Light Shaft effects are now disabled in VR. Made the HUD size dependent on the distance to it. 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. Multiplayer: 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. Fixed so checkered phase ends directly when all vehicles have finished. Fixed an issue with spectators not being able to join full servers. Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI: Bathurst: AI Tweaks Hockenheim GP : Tightened Cut detections Moscow Raceway FIM : Tightened Cut detections Nurburgring (all layouts) : Tightened Cut detections Shanghai (all layouts) : Tightened Cut detections, AI tweaks Suzuka (all layouts) : Tightened Cut detections, AI tweaks to prevent going wide in 130R Zandvoort : AI tweaks BMW M3 E30 : new sounds BMW M1 Procar: Tweaked chase camera, improved results of car to car collisions Art: Data displays now added to all cars.

Hungaroring : Fixed some overly bright runoffs, swapped 2D audience to latest ones Paul Ricard : Fixed some curbs and adjusted banking of some corners based on drivers feedback. Suzuka : Smoothed a nasty bump just before 130R. Portal & Backend: Fixed issue with time interval not clearing up in MP browser.
