Assetto Corsa Competizione | Hotfixes 1.3.8 and 1.3.9 Now Available

Kunos Simulazioni have recently deployed two new hotfix updates to Assetto Corsa Competizione.

Build 1.3.8 released a few days again and contains some minor tweaks and competition specific improvements for the simulation. However, it is perhaps 1.3.9 that is the more prominent of the two builds - adding an update of the multiplayer collision model that should, according to Kunos, improve the way car-to-car racing is presented in online racing situations. .

You can check out the update notes for these two new build releases below:

Changelog v1.3.9
  • Multiplayer collision model improvements. Brings a substantial improvement in MP collisions, which will improve door-to-door racing with more reliable and grounded contact physics.
Changelog v1.3.8
  • Sponsorship related updates for the SRO eSports event.
  • All formation lap types now ghost cars during the formation lap until the green flag by design (only available for private servers).
  • Added event-specific formation lap types for private servers (4 and 5, please wait for updated server manual for more information).
  • Tolerance tweaks for the scripted formation type.

Assetto Corsa Competizione is available now on PC, with console release to expected June 23rd.

I guess this is what happens when you put on a highly publicized race (and a dev gets ported back to the pits at the start of the race ;) ). I'm glad they are constantly making these improvements. I also hope they do more signature race events. The best keeps getting better (IMO)

ACC is an almost perfect sim for me (not a VR user here). I just cannot stop racing it and it's getting better and better. I really hope that some optimisations will come with the consoles' release (how it was with AC1) and even more people will be able to enjoy it. Keep up the good work Kunos! :thumbsup:

But why not wait that the manual has been corrected to throw this new server.exe ?
Sorry but I find this system really ridiculous and disorganized.

And when will that feature arrive?

I seem to recall there was an issue that SRO had with the potential to virtually run over people in the pits. Personally, I would forgo having control of the car once the pit speed limiter is engaged just to be able to watch the choreography of the pit crews in a busy pit lane and allow the computer to prevent my car from mowing down an opponents wheel man. It would also allow me to make pit stop changes instead of steering the car down the out lane. Others will absolutely hate that idea - and I get that.

Why not, but actually you have only your teammates, 4 peoples in the stand and all other teams are invisible^^ i think that a small effort is conceivable. I've never been able to run over my team-mates in the pits in F1 games or in any simulation and yet I've tried to... ;)

Question to VR users. Every time I start the game I’m on the ceiling looking down at the menu.

Same at race start I’m 10 ft above the car? All other sims I’m in the driver seat. Samsung Odyssey plus.

Its an italian team - right?:p

ByTheWay: I can remember the official danish railways bought some italian "next gen" italian train sets(IC4) for as I remember it 650.000 Euro. But none of them could really run - so after a few years all the train sets was discarded - and the danish taxpayers had to pay.:roflmao:
EDIT: The total sum for the taxpayers was about 1 milliard Euro.

I didn't say that exactly at it is more general in fact.... as it seems also a bad habit in many societies.
They communicate a lot outside ... but communication inside is disorganized or forgotten.

I already noticed it also in other big, middle or little societies of all kinds but more often with a limited number of persons.... while it should be easier in this case than with a lot of them. :D
NB: and even in families ! :O_o:
