Tuesday is patchday!

Discussion in 'RaceRoom Racing Experience' started by Kjell Eilertsen, Jul 7, 2015.

  1. Today it seems we're getting the next R3E patch;

    So what can we expect from this downtime?
    Well for one I think we finally get to see this baby added to the roster;

    Nissan Skyline GTR R32
    [​IMG]
    Godzilla joins the Touring Classics and the entire class of cars have been updated with new physics and BOP (Balance of Performance) to match the DTM 1992 cars.
    Look for upcoming club races using both these cars alone and in conjunction with the DTM cars.

    Other than that we hope to see some added features to the dedicated server, support for more info being pulled from the shared memory API (read: more cool stuff for telemetry apps to use), and the usual host of bugfixes and improvements.

    Note that I don't know for sure this is coming in this patch, but it has been hinted at.

    They look like they'll be fun! Really hoping there's some FFB improvement in the update; they really need to iron out the oscillation around the center of the wheel otherwise I can't really enjoy the newest content anyway.

  3. I'm so looking forward to this! Godzilla shall once again roam the earth!
    As far as FFB issues go try scouring the numerous threads on here already and find settings for your wheel, I have no such issues and neither does a lot of us.

    I know, but a lot of people do so I know I'm not alone. I've spent countless hours finding settings and trying to get it right (Matej's suggested settings in the wheel settings thread are the best so far), but I'm tired of trying now; it's an issue with the way the FFB is, not my wheel. It's something that needs fixing.

    Anyway, not wanting to divert this thread onto a FFB discussion, I was just saying I hope there's some improvements in the patch. Don't get me wrong, I still love the game, I'm not being negative.

    I am just waiting (as I said also at S3S forum) for something like, don˙t beat me, AC clutch use and then I think, I will drive mostly these old beasts :)
     
  7. Agreed that on cars that has manual clutch in real life, there should be a penalty for using autoclutch. How does AC solve this?
    The Skyline R32 however didn't use clutch afaik, I'm pretty sure it had a dogshift tranny.

    I'm looking for some core game improvements particularly single player options like pit windows and pit stop rules, tyre wear rates, multiclass etc....

    The touring classics pack is not that interesting to me. I own three of the cars and rarely use them so this pack will be a sale purchase. My vRP is waiting for Spa, Paul Ricard and ADAC GT 15.
     
  9. i haven't buyed a classic touring car (the only class where i haven't buyed a car until now) waiting fot that skyline to be released :thumbsup:

    I˙ve never driven cars who have manual clutch with auto clutch, but as I know, auto clutch causes slower gear changes. So couple times, when I raced Abarths, there wasn˙t any difference between us in a matter of laptimes, no matter what technique of gear changing did we use.

    I too hope there are some FFB changes. I have been playing about with different settings and I can't get it good. It is playable but it is a struggle to enjoy it. I found the FFB to be better about 6 months ago to be honest. Something ahs changed for the worse.

    Really enjoying the game though. Couple of really good MP races here last night. :)

    I have read the thread mate, but what am I looking for? But I don't know what Andrew means by "it's back". What's back? The old FFB settings?
