ACC Special Event: 2.4 Hours of Spa Coming Friday 5th of July

timthumb.png

Epic Endurance Racing! Experience a full 24 hour race in 2.4 hours of on track action! This is the RD 2.4 hours of Spa!


We have been hosting ACC Club events for quite some time now and we felt it is the right time to go and have an RD Special Event! Put 30 cars on a track and let the drivers experience the full 24 hour day/night cycle whilst battling for victory. Sounds good doesn't it? Yes? Then why haven't you signed up yet?

How do I register for the race?
Head over to this link, or to the ACC Racing Club and just leave your signup in the thread!

When is the event taking place?
This event takes place at Friday, July 5th 2019 and starts at 18:30 UTC. It starts half an hour earlier than you might be used to since this event is a long one.

What cars are you using?
Assetto Corsa Competizione offers us the possibility to choose from any car we like from the Blancpain GT series. That means 18 different cars ready to roar through the Belgian Ardennes!

Would love to join, but my PC has a hard time handling so much cars at once.
As a fellow simracer with dated hardware, does ACC have no setting to set max. visible cars?
This being said, AI races on AC never worked for me, the same 99% GPU loadout slowdowns in all instances.

You can limit visible cars in ACC.
Tried to limit it to 10 in career mode (can't go lower at the start cause otherwhise you end up with other problems) and it still created freezing. Rest of the race is fine, but besides starting dead last and trying to make up ground I have for now no other way than to see it from the sideline. That is, if I don't want to risk to ruin somebody else their race. Prove me wrong if you can please, cause I am sitting on an SA of 84.

Don’t forget that offline your computer needs to run the AI as well as draw their graphics, online might be less intensive?

Will there be a minimum SA requirement or checking that competitors will have the basic understanding of how racing works, Flags etc..?

Would love to do this but I will be hung over to hell on Friday and will be in no fit state to drive even a virtual car.

Fair point indeed, it all started to happen around 1.0.2 though. Should check some random server to make sure.
With an SA of 84 I wouldn't check a 'random' server... the competition server or at least a high SA ranked server would be better.
Lowering the visible cars should help, I take it you're already running low level graphics settings to help increase your overall FPS limit?

Actually no, my performance is mostly blocked by an older mobo-cpu than my 1060 6GB.
