    THE REST OF THE CHANGELOG FOLKS:

    [​IMG]

    Game:


    • Fixed an issue with game finding wrong camera in pitlane.
    • Fixed so game gets properly paused in singleplayer race monitor if the user opens the steam overlay.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur during loading.
    • Reduced memory usage when loading into a track.
    • Fixed an issue in Garage menu where FFB remained active
    • Fixed an exploit that allowed players to use lower fuel quantities in Leaderboard Challenges and Competitions.
      • Due to this exploit we will soon remove entries that were created since the exploit was introduced.
    • Fixed an issue in pitstops where it would take extra 3-4 seconds after confirming 0L fuel or if the pit stop preset had no fuel needed. The game now it checks if fuel will be added, if not it cancels that action. If it was the only action, whole pitstop is cancelled.
    • Fixed cars full throttling at pitstops.
    • Fixed an issue where players were getting cut track penalties at pit entry.
    • Added missing fallback pages for DTM 2015 that was causing infinite black screen at launch for players when they failed to get the online loading screen.
    • Fixed issue with compact data display being positioned incorrectly on different aspect ratios.
    • Added default profiles and wheel ranges for Thrustmaster 150 and TMX wheels.
    • Added proper filtering to car setup load/save system.
    • Restyled the car setup a little.
    • Fixed an issue that was causing a crash at launch if the player had an older version of graphics.xml
    • Fixed header formatting for certain system backend requests that might reduce certain timeouts.


    Multiplayer:

    • Fixed the severe freeze that occurred in MP when another player joins.
    • Added Bigger grids to player dedicated servers.
      • Please note the max opponent allowed depends on your track rotation. E.g. If you have a track that only has 24 slots in your rotation, that will be your max opponent allowed overall, despite having a track that goes up to 100. This is to ensure no one gets kicked out/disconnects when they choose to continue to next track. If you want 100 cars you have to make sure not to include a track with less grid slots available.
      • Please also note that the game becomes quite laggy after 40. While we will look into optimizing things, you should avoid setting a track with more than 35-40 opponents.

    • Fixed so the player is put on the Garage menu after pressing and holding ESC instead of having to press and hold ESC twice
    • Increased chat message max length to 156.
    • Changed message area/box text color to yellow so it’s more readable if background is white.
