AMS: Final Update Deployed - Donington and Snetterton Available Now

I don't really understand what they changed on controller settings but on my G27 stearing now feels very heavy and if I want to get it to normal 2x alt+tab just like in rF2 which is quite frustrating. Anyone else has this issue since the last update?
 
Not that impressed by the update, to be fair. I read on multiple posts here and on the Reiza page that they'd also add things like Anti-Stall mechanics, KERS/ERS mechanics, etc. for the modern F1 cars and I was really looking forward to that. Where's all that stuff?
 
Yep Donington , my favourite british track is greatly done on ams and its an oficial ams track so we dont have to use mods that limits substantially the grid.



One Permanent Timetrial Server with Donington is set (" ONLY DONINGTON @ Timetrial" ) in case you want to compete and know where you stand against others.



And here it comes my opinión :p : I miss that time when Reiza organized the timetrials and some races... those times are gone but lets see if with AMS2 they offer some similar or better ( i really hope a better) multiplayer organized action...on these days a sim is not only to be played offline....or at least the open servers should be more populated, only my humble and may be wrong opinión, please dont hate me :p, i am so sensitive!

Autorotation not working issues are being investigated.

Those with G27 having this issue: do you have any other device, like pedals, button boxes or else connected? Or is it the G27 only?
 
Thanks REIZA for the last two new tracks. A great era of AMS1 is ending now.
I will also miss the nice mods which were available for AMS1 and unfortunately won't be for AMS2, which is not moddable. That keeps me back from buying the new version.

Everyone with a G27 has this issue...:D

But i use Fanatec CSP V3 and a T8AH Shifter additionally.

It's like using a G29 AMS Build with the G27 now. The same problems occur

If you can't tell the difference then use the medium setting, but you could try taking a screenshot so you can see the difference. However I think the real issue might be that it's not working. You have to use Nvidia Inspector to put in the antialiasing fix code. I can let you know more if you're not sure how. Unless you have a fairly beefy PC, you should see a noticable difference in performance between the two.

The high setting is the best in theory because of an extra part you forgot to mention: 4xSGSS (Sparse Grid Super Sampling). That provides the strongest Anti-Aliasing available, but is equally the most taxing on your GPU. It really smooths out any jagged edges to the point where some might think it's blurry (I personally love it). The better setting would actually be the "High" setting (4xMS + 4xSGSS) and not the "High+" setting you described (8xQ + 4xSGSS), because it's usually better to have the same multipler (4x, 8x, etc) when mixing AA methods.

Using Nvidia Inspector you can get custom settings not available in the AMS config menu...I don't have screenshots of the exact AA settings you listed but this should give a clear example of the difference between SGSS off and on. There should be a "softer" appearance to everything on the 2nd image (make sure you click on the image to see it at full size).

8xQ (no SGSS)

4xMS + 4xSGSS:

I concur that the High setting can look better in terms of the slight blurry look versus stepped notches, especially if you have a lower res (1080 or less) monitor. However, High+ is better for eliminating the "crawling" textures issue, which is definitely worse on High. Using the new Snetterton as an example, the pit wall railing right across from the car as it points out of the garage and the distant trees are two examples of the "digital noise" that exists very plainly in High, but is lessened or eliminated with High+.

Could you comment on what mipmap settings (in .PLR file) we should use to get the best results with each of High and High+ (or maybe it is the same for both)?

Thanks in advance!

It's not possible for the game to set exclusive fullscreen NVIDIA antialising setting as it requires setting AA compat flags to 0x40 in "NVIDIA Profile inspector" for AMS.exe and this cannot be done by code.
Why can't it be done by the config utility? It already creates a brand new nVidia profile for AMS when you select the enhanced AA options, why couldn't that profile include this one setting in particular?

Me personally, If the driving experience in AMS2 can match or better AMS1 and there's a big online presence (which I suspect their will be, as modern graphics and VR support were the only two things holding AMS1 back), I won't miss the mods that much.

Don't get me wrong, I love having all the amazing modded tracks in AMS1 (I'd nominate @Patrick Giranthon for the modder of the year if there is such a thing! :thumbsup:), but I love the mix of official cars and tracks found in AMS that no other sim provides, and 9 times out of 10 I'm driving a Reiza car, not a modded one. IMO if you're a fan of single seater cars, I'd argue that AMS1 is unrivaled in this regard (only hybrid systems are missing for the modern ones).

i am also having issue with g25. previous auto rotation always worked. now it seems i need to alt-tab after getting into the car, then rotation is properly set. the get into the car alt-tab is required for me if i use auto rotation, or turn auto rotation off and set a value, that value is only applied after the alt-tab.

also, it seems using the "reset force feedback" button while driving resets the wheel to 900 when auto-rotation is on, and 270 when off and force to a value.

league race today, this will be interesting

Because unlike other NVIDIA AA settings that can be set in the config utility to alter the profile, there is no API (eg programmatic way) to alter the AA compat flags: it can only be changed manually by the user.

Also, i post it here:
My G27 Auto-Steering-Rotation isn't working anymore now. :(

And another user has severe issues with his graphics card drivers (AMD), and tripple screen usage, also i've got stutters, have somewhat fixed them, by using a new profile and config.ini and after that, merging the old ones back into the documents folder... (I'm Nvidia User)

EDIT: Even with Auto-Steering-Rotation off, my G27 is stuck with 180° in every situation. Is there something going on with the G920 thingy? I once had this issue with the previous update, where a wrong build was deployed for a short time... (When i change to the G29 build in the Beta option in steam, also nothing changes, no downloads or smth. else ,rollback to 1.5.16 works fine, but then the new tracks aren't available)

I can't get an account verification e-mail for the Reiza-forum, so i have to post it here, sry. @Renato Simioni
EDIT2: My account verification now worked, after a few months, being registered ^^' Report + Trace File posted there.^^
And G27 LEDS don´t work..

In my case I only use the original g27 without any other accessories, since the last update what was great is bad, the FFB and auto rotation look weird and the LED lights don't work!

nVidia Inspector can change these settings, so they're obviously third-party accessible.

Tracks are awesome, another great job by Reiza - thank you, guys!

You know, it's incredibly humbling sometimes. If you take Forza and GT out of the picture, the number of people out there with an appetite to play racing games that depict real life physics is razor thin. Yet, here I sit with 5 different (actively supported) sims on my hard drive, each good enough to make a claim as being my favorite.

Without the passion of these devs, we are nowhere! Reiza and AMS are the embodiment of that.
 
I'm also in a Logitech G27 and now my game is ruined.
FFB doesn't work at all like it used to be, extremely heavy and no track ffb response, it's impossible to do a corner like this. LEDs also doesn't working.

I had league race today but couldn't do it, tried a lot of things even erasing my userdata folder and placing an old one but nothing works, FFB is now ruined.

In fact it's always the same with Reiza updates since GSC, the always add something and destroys something in the process.
