    The downforce is strong with this one.

    I have some questions because I became bored with stupid AI and would like to race with you.

    Which modifications are allowed or don't make problems when racing online? I use:

    - disabled hands and driver animations in PLR file
    - clear visor
    - no bug mod
    - Zonda R sound mod (modified aud file)
    - modified braking zone washboard effect in locations\specialfx.tec
    - grip for AI set exactly like mine in gdb files (locations)
    - I'd like to modified hdc file for formula bmw because I want to dissable auto blip

    Thanks.

    BTW I haven't practiced pit stops yet and drive only 30min stints...

    Bottom 2 won't work, they will cause a mismatch with the server. Anything that is purely graphical should be ok

    So, I could everytime rename my location folder because I need it just for offline racing. It was just an experiment of mine, but I think AI drives more realistic this way.

    If I can't modified hdc file for a car that is really bad. I just wanted to change:

    [DRIVELINE]
    SemiAutomatic=1 set as 0

    So that would mean I can't drive some cars online. :frown:

    Anyway, how is the best way to try it? Join some event hosted by someone?
     
  4. Just try and join some public servers. Doesn't really matter which. If you get booted as 'a possible cheat', then you'll know the change cannot be used during RD events.

    OK, I'll try it.

    Or replace your RACE 07 folder and back it up somewhere, restart steam and you have a fresh game again for online play :)
     
  7. Or use SimRacingManager... Why can't you use manual or automatic gears? I have to test first but if i remember correctly, you can use automatic as semiautomatic, as you can still change gears manually. Combined with "hold button for gear" you can have full semiautomatic gearbox (hmm, i have to try that myself, could be suitable when RUI...)The automatic goes to "standby" for a certain time before it switches back to full automatic.

    EDIT: wait... [DRIVELINE] ? What does it do? And the gearbox works the way i described, all though the whole post is now off-topic.. damn...

    I've tried to change that value and it still works the same, the autoblip is still there. I'm confused. It's no use using H&T. Radicals work great without any editing.

    When I was comparing WTCC cars for example, the BMW has manual gearbox and SemiAutomatic=0. Other cars on the other hand have SemiAutomatic=1 and absolutely don't need clutch and have autoblip when downshifting. I'll look into this later.

    It's totaly bad that you can't make customisation through menu.
     
  9. Yes, SimBin hardcoded autoblib and clutchless (cake is a lie....) shifting. We all hate it. You can't get rid off it. Sorry, i really mean it. I'd like at least have a choice to use H&T.

    Looks like there really is autoblip, but it isn't so noticable in some cars like radical.

    I've tried some random servers and looks like I got booted as a possible cheat only when I forgot to remove my modified location files. My Zonda sound mod worked good. But I still had some problems on some servers with GT cars. Looks like some servers run different version of game or don't have gt power pack cars. Maybe there is some mismatch.

    I just happened to have Radicals telemetry from Monza, not a very good lap but it'll do. I can assure you that i don't let my foot of the throttle like it shows in the pic, clicky for fullsize. It's driven without autoclutch and two pedals.
     
  12. you can't modify the .aud files for online racing. You can use different sound bytes, but they need to have the same file name as the original & of course they will need to match the rev range that the original sound byte used....
