ACC V1. 7 Update - D.Jankovic.jpg

Kunos Simulazioni have released a new 'preview' hotfix build for their Assetto Corsa Competizione racing simulation.

Moving the sim to version 1.0.7, the new build is available now under the 'beta' tab of the game within Steam, with the main public build release expected to drop in the next few days if no significant issues are detected by early adopters of the latest version.

Build 1.0.7 update notes:

  • CPU optimization on the game thread resulting in less CPU usage with AI.
  • Added all cars' locations to shared memory.
  • Added electronics channels to shared memory, in particular TC, TC Cut, ABS, fuel cons, engine map, exhaust temps, lights and wipers stages.
  • Added initial TrackIR plugin implementation.
    NOTE: a specific profile is required to be set up, please follow our forums for more information.
  • Mid-session saving is re-enabled.
  • Added ability to save multiple games and load then individually.
  • NOTE: Championship and Career can still only have a single saved instance.
  • Now save games correctly handle car damage.
  • NOTE: it will only work with new saved games.
  • Fixed a bug where restarting the engine was not possible in certain cameras.
  • Fixed a bug with championship status when starting a new championship with another season in progress.
  • Fixed wrong blue flag when only one car remains on the track.
  • Reworked driver stint logic in Endurance game modes.
  • Added driving time limit per driver in Endurance game modes.
  • Added driver stint requirements per different Endurance modes as per real-life regualtions.
  • Improved AI strategy in stint-based game modes.
  • Disabled possibility to trigger the Helicam audio during intro sequence.
  • Stop&Go penalty engineer audio message.
  • Mouse steering overhaul.
  • Steering linearity added to controller settings.
  • Race commands will not longer be intercepted for UI commands other than the directional pad (up, down, left and right).
  • Fixed clutch limit bug when using maximum deadzone.
  • Added Save Game window in the main menu to load saved games.
  • Fixed chat window auto pop-in bug when receiving messages.
  • Electronics and pitstop MFD page made more compact.
  • HUD and car dash delta relinked to same source.
  • Adjusted button alignment in the Replay menu.
  • Fixed a bug where saving a setup with "/" in the file name would create a new folder.
  • Fixed a bug where controller input was lost on the leaderboard page of the career and championship.
  • Car previews now reliably load high-res textures in preview screens.
  • Small car previews now reliably load on the Special Event pages.
  • Added replay leaderboard and 'Toggle HUD' button in the replay HUD.
  • Removed redundant "Driver" button on Player page.
  • Updated UI background images and logos.
  • Championship end-page logic review.
  • Restyling of the championship and career pages.
  • Added option to scale race HUD widgets.
  • NOTE: in this implementation it allows the player to resize the elements of the race HUD overall.
  • Added "Continue" button for championship weather page.
  • Added Save Replay and Save Highlights as configurable controls (the saving will have a 1-minute cooldown before allowing it again).
  • Replay HUD now allows camera cycling during free camera.
  • Disabled ideal line during replay.
  • More reliable 'stop the engine' message during pitstops.
  • Improved lapped information for realtime leaderboard when the cars are on the same lap.
  • Improved filter for gap information in the realtime leaderboard.
  • Added driver stint and remaining driving time information in the pit strategy page of the MFD.
  • MFD now displays mandatory pit stop requirements in relevant game modes on the pit strategy page.
  • NOTE: it also displays whether the selected options meet the requirements and thus count towards a valid mandatory pit stop.
  • NOTE: maximum driving time is the key information to follow in endurance races
  • Added pit limiter popup display when entering the pit entry zone.
  • Added helicam and onboard cameras to the broadcasting app.
  • LOD adjustments on various models.
  • Wheel rim material adjustments for various cars.
  • Update to Black Falcon team liveries.
  • Potential fix for the random open-close car door animations during gameplay.
  • Fix for brake lights of hidden cars visible when limited opponents visibility is used.
  • New 5 collision points tyre model. Tyres now "climb gradually" over kerbs, sausages, bumps both in lateral and longitudinal motion.
  • Completely eliminates the "rail kerb" effect. Greatly improved behaviour over all kind of kerbs, improved precision, improved bumps absorption.
  • Tyre model improvements to better handle high load peak situations and high rolling resistance peaks.
  • Tyre model now simulates lowering of profile while the tyre flexes. Ride heights will be lower during turns.
  • Tweaks to tyre model rolling resistance model. (Fixed and speed sensitive RR variations).
  • New Traction Control operation. TC now simulates a two step operation, acting on the engine ignition timing (lowering power) and if that is not enough, cutting ignition all together as before.
    This permits the TC to have a smoother operation at the start of a slide, permitting the driver to use the slide to turn the car without extreme vibrations or engine cut.
  • New Traction Control logic. TC now takes into account the yaw acceleration, simulating gyroscope sensors as the real cars.
  • As a result, even if the slide or slip of the tyres is not enough, a sudden yaw acceleration (a fast rotation of the car) will activate the TC to save the car from spinning. It also works intelligently so that it can check if the yaw rotation is under control by the driver, allow him to use the power at will.
  • Tweaks on the tyre pressure loss on rough surfaces (kerbs, off road etc).
  • Car collider tweaks for various models.
  • Fixed tyre core temps not properly saved and loaded.
  • Fixed incorrect tyre wear when restarting race after loading a saved game.
  • Tweaks to weather temperatures and sun phase.
  • Tweaks to water dissipation rates.
  • Fixed a setup bug with wet/dry setups on session changes.
  • Fixed bugs related to setup naming.
  • Fixed a bug with speed limiter status in neutral gear.
  • Automatic engines will start when the Pit Menu closes, so all engines should be on at the start of a formation lap.
  • Rejoining a server while disqualified is now detected in all situations, locking down the car in the pitlane (instead of doing so on the straight after the first lap).
  • Speed up to 50kph" message will not trigger when starting in the pitlane.
  • Pit menu selections now are more adaptive, also removing the "Setup" button as spectator.
  • Entering an empty server as spectator will now properly start with the pitlane camera.
  • Slightly increased the ping limit for CP servers.
  • Fixed long formation lap to not allow waiting in the first sector. Doing so will ignore the first lap.
  • Added server health diagonistics, usable in the UI for further client updates and as admin command.
  • Added UI element (next to the tyre app) indicating server health stats, and colorful warnings for overloaded servers.
  • Replaced "result" json outputs by a new structure containing more information like track, session data, all laps and all penalties
  • Json outputs now are also written when the session is advanced via /next command, or when the last player leaves and the server resets.
  • Fixed the "rain" and "ambient" conditions setting having little to no influence on the dynamic weather
  • Reduced the rate of weather changes for high randomness settings
  • Activated the entryList setting "defaultGridPosition", allowing to resume a race any time (any Q session will overwrite the positions, but P->R would not).
  • Added "dumpEntryList" flag, usable on non-public servers.
  • It will save all connected cars and drivers to a entrylist.json when a Q session is finished.
  • Added admin command "/manual entrylist" to save an entrylist of the currently connected cars and drivers (on a non-public server).
  • Fixed total race time having an offset in result jsons
  • Fixed playerIds not filled in the json results when defined by entry list.
  • Fixed car category not being configurable in every scenario (using the entry list).
  • Collisions during the race wait time won't affect the SA rating.
  • Removed randomization from "wrong tyre" warnings.
TrackIR is now implemented, and requires the following:
A basic TrackIR user profile that has all the relevant settings and some basic, neutral curves applied so you can have a good starting point with a functional profile (you can finetune the curves for different responses or use a different center key mapping, etc...) is included in the attachment of this post.

The profile needs to be copied into this folder: C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\NaturalPoint\TrackIR 5\Profiles

The profile needs to be selected via:

Damn i can't believe that i'm now able to drive the 911 around spa while attacking the curbs without losing the control:D also i'm now way more consistent with other cars as there are almost no weird random things going on the curbs (with the previous method the cars were acting randomly on curb, sometimes ok, sometimes into the wall). it's the first time that i feel comfortable with the cars in ACC.
...Or true triple screen support...but sadly I cant ever see it happening. Its unfortunate because this sim is awesome and exactly what a lot of people are looking for, but for the triple screen users, trying to maintain the (correct) FOV on their single central monitor is unplayable. And the band-aid fix of using 5760x1080 resolution across all three screens without compensation for the monitor angles is rubbish....Sorry for the rant...otherwise great sim tho.
the only problem of acc is the fact that it is the official game of blancpain series, so the team has unnecessary preasure ( and maybe the engine doesn´t make live easier), but otherwise they have done an impressive job till now
In case you are wondering, yes, the TrackIR support works with Opentrack. Was a bit of a pain to find comfortable settings compared to other games and also felt kinda sluggish and sometimes lagging behind, but works.

Ace, Going to give my EdTracker a go at the weekend, Also looking forward to trying the kerbs now, Might actually be able to drive the Huracan a bit more confidently now! :roflmao:
"Save Mid-Game"...that has me interested. Best feature in F1 series.
it's the feature i bought acc for, works like a charm, only weird bit: the saves are not all presented on one screen but in their respective parts of the game, i.e. Career, Championship and Single Player, the latter are to be found under "saved games". once you figured that, it's great.

VR !! what about VR ?

Improvement in CPU usage will help with VR, but I think you have to understand they cannot fix everything in one go. For Kunos, this is the best update yet. The feedback has been mostly positive.

I'm a VR user too, I'm being patient as I understand the challenges with using the unreal engine and VR. Did you watch the interview we did with Kunos? They explain it there.

This build is brilliant had some great races with this Beta, can't wait for full access to Simhub dashes.
Glad to see TrackIR implemented as the VR is unplayable for many, unfortunately TrackIR is very smooth but it keeps jittering every now and then with double vision here and there :( can't use it, works fine with other sims,
aand what about simple things like
-able to see my splittimes and those from others
-sharing setups on the server
-when clicking on load/safe setup, give me a warning before i overwrite my sick ass setup, or put load as default
-SA rating after race has finished should not be affected
-SA rating: why am i punished when someone hit me from behind, especially with a big speed delta between us
-build in simple telemetry, just speed over distance, throttle and braking. in combination with a graph that shows where i lost or gained time compared to a reference lap that i can choose
-possibility for votings (kick, ban, next session, restart)
