Assetto Corsa Competizione: New Hotfix Releases Deployed

ACC Hotfix Notes.jpg

Kunos Simulazioni have deployed a couple of hotfix releases for Assetto Corsa Competizione, including some very welcome VR performance advice...


Well, let us be honest here, these are some pretty sizeable update notes considering the "hotfix" tag, so don't be fooled into thinking they are just quick and simple new build releases aimed at single areas of focus - most sim racing game developers don't have release notes this large for main build updates!

Alongside the new fixes, Kunos have also offered some advice to players looking for more performance from VR devices, of which you can see the details below:

The hotfix has only made things worse for me: before the hotfix the VR wouldn't work, now it doesn't start at all, not even in pancake mode :thumbsdown:
Thank goodness for rF2 and PC2, they start in a few seconds and just work. The "early access" excuse is beginning to wear a little thin.......I'm beginning to think that the final release won't be any better, thank goodness I only paid the early access price, it's not the first time I've been burned...and won't be the last :D

Even with the new patch and "-vr" fix, my rift still stutters, shakes whenever I move my head. Anyone else encounter this? It was working fine in the earlier stages of the game.

Some things have not appeared yet, some things need improving, indeed VR is poor right now ...but honestly, I do not care, because I am very confident that Kunos will deliver in the end...If I had any doubt, I would have never entered into the early access program.

I am sure that we are not so far away from holding events here at RD with this sim and I am sure the grids will be full.

I feel like I'm the exception? I did the "delete the whole game" thing and let it reload from scratch. For me it is running a lot better now. And Paul Ricard for example looks better as well.

Also, I really like the feel of the new 18 Datsun. Not sure if its just a placebo, but I prefer the feel of the other cars as well now.

I dunno, the new 18 Datsun ;) might feel good and run good, but the sound is the worst. Bentley sounds so much better.

Can we set the hud to only have the radar only and not the rating bs in the top right corner?
I really like a very minimal hud so just hit f2 a few times to remove everything but would like the radar on but can't figure out how to have it only!

i don´t understand how people can do so much mimi on an early access game, i´m glade to play it earlier and cheaper and its still completer than other finish games for full price, u see so much progress on this game, and if u compare to ac1 from first build and the steps its the similar way and ac 1 is awesome, so let the boys do their thing and trust

Yes, although I haven't deleted/reloaded, I am considering to do so when Vers 1 arrives.

I am heavy into the MMORPG world, and this early access is going GREAT compared to other titles in that genre. Mostly on-time releases, good communication from the dev's, stable releases...

It's in the HUD menu options is it not? Disable everything you don't want and enable what you do want...

After the hotfix 0.6.2 yesterday I gave a warm welcome to hotfix 0.6.3 early this morning ... since that it is not possible to run an offline race without the warning message CPU load > 99%???. Lots of stuttering and lags.

Cheers
