    There are no files to sync, concerning the physics updates mentioned.
    There's only the superv8 engine.ini. Other cars are not listed.
    You sure you've added them all or those files don't show up by default ?

    And thank you for the update. :thumbsup:

    Leagues can run in any day I´m afraid, no way to accomodate everyone. Best just to not set the game to auto-update when you have a league race in the horizon?

    Jan not sure what physics files you were expecting to see, other than the .inis the others are embedded in the exe as always :)

    @Renato Simioni The link to the update package is still pointing to the v1.51 update… It might be normal if you are still uploading the update? Thank you for the improvements!

    Nah my mistake, fixed now. Thanks :)

    Just minor tire & aero refinements, unfortunately I haven´t kept a detailed log for it.

    I can no longer view replays from before the patch :( is there a way to fix this? Presumably it's because of the changes to replay info?

    Right but most leagues are like Euro/North America zones. Updating on a monday 8am CET would sure cut a huge chance of having a league running.
    Plus from what I noticed a very few people know how to stop Steam updates (mine is set to not update) but even with this setting off I'm almost sure games like Assetto still update, at least the loading screen show different game version, not sure about SCE didn't have the chance to do the test yet

    Yes sorry I´d missed adding that in the release notes - indeed due to replay code changes, older replay files will no longer be recognized by v1.52.

    I'm having a problem with updates. When manually loading them from the provided .rar files merging file locations and over-writing the new files, the installation looks for folders that are not in the GSCEx directory on my C: drive. It is looking for folders in C:\Users\xxx\Appdata\Local\Temp\RAR... which it says are no longer there so I have to skip that part of the update to get the update to finish. What is this and how do I fix it?

    Lots of people, especially the less versed with PCs, are having huge issues again. Of course some have plug-ins which makes it even worse, coupled with their inability to work things out. The mix of Steam/non-Steam kills it, especially with Steam users not knowing how to prevent their updates.

    Is it possible to have an update schedule taking place after the weekend, like early Monday, given most races take place through the weekend? Some people were forced to update and the Sunday league race server had to be updated. This is not good. Ever. Especially when there are crowds of people aged 50-65 who still struggle.

    As far as I know there was no game-breaking glitch so no need for an urgent update.

    GSE.exe is not a valid Win32 application. After G Sync to 1.52

    Fixed: Ran G Sync a few more times. New GSE.exe was updated and now works.

    Can you re-work the replay function to recognize old replay files? I save all my old league race replays to occasionally re-live my old glories and ignomious defeats. I presume that others like to keep an archive as well. Otherwise I will have to keep a copy of v1.51 just for replays, which is pretty lame.

    Or can we convert the old replays somehow to get around this?

    I am all for moving forward but this is the second "feature" that has been broken without warning.
    With 150 we lost our statistics... and now the replays.

    We can´t add new features, have the data for it stored in replays and keep them retro-compatible. Thats just the way things are, sometimes we have to live with such little inconveniences if things are to move forward.

    I do agree there should have been some heads-up this was coming though - we usually do announce incoming updates but this time we missed it. That was a mistake on my part for which I offer my apologies for anyone who has had any inconvenience from it.

    You can revert back to a NonSteam install and run v1.51 - you could even install the v1.50 update pack on top of it to revert further, if gathering results or checking out a few replays is all you need from it. Even if you dont have that version activated in your system any longer, the 1h trial should be enough for any emergency backup.

    Was it really necessary to have such a small update with a few fixes, but a lot of work involved, released if the promised Steam Only version with the new name and all the other promised goodies is due in a few weeks time?
