    Assetto Corsa Competizione has been updated! Build 2 brings with it a new car, track, VR and plenty of improvements too...

    Pretty much every sim racing fan who lives in a world of internet connection and passing interest in our hobby will be aware that Assetto Corsa Competizione is a thing, and by the same token I'm sure they probably know that today is patch day. With that in mind, and following an unbelievably strange day that kept me from the laptop (and the ACC update) until almost midnight, let's have a look at the update notes and see what's new.

    Oh, and sorry for the late posting... :)

    I've not had change to try it yet :(

    Been a late finish at work and then still building up my new rig.... so looking forward to the next few days when I can get behind the wheel!

    I'm surprised how good the Bentley actually drives through the corners. Rotates very well on brakes and throttle, nimble even through slow turns. You'd never know when you just look at it :D

    Don't expect a properly working VR yet, probably in 0.2.1, too many issues with it at the moment (artifacts, blur, tracking scale error, etc). :(
    On a general note though, the Bentley drives nicely, Misano is well represented, and we now have drying wet conditions to test.

    Yes it is ! :)
    Now I could rant about the missing triple screen support, but for now I'm rather surprised how well the big Bentley behaves at Misano. The track looks good too.
    Both car and track are a step up from the mods I have in AC atm.

    I hope the next patch has button remapping and no lap times are being recorded.
    Are they following some broadcast format as no times are shown either - you have to click on the result of each car?_?

    Running in VR pretty fine here! All graphics values on high. 18 cars visible.
    Resembling a lot the quality i usually got in AC.
    My specs: Win 7 - i5 4570 3.20 GHz - GTX 1070ti - 16GB DDR Ram - SSD HD - Oculus Rift CV1

    The Bentley seems quite driveable... i expected much worse. Or maybe Kunos evolved the game FFB a little bit?
    I can feel the rear tyres much clearer now... need to jump back on the Lambo i guess to understand if my perception is right.

    I'd love to move the VR panels in game far from the current position: is it possible to set their distance from our POV? Anyone know how? Thx

    The wet to dry works nicely. With each lap as the track dried my confidence increased and lap times dropped. The visual clues were there as well, even in the less than stellar VR mode.

    Found it: CTRL + left/right arrows...

    Tried to set ULTRA on most of the graphics and it runs quite smooth at 120 SS.
    I know it could be better and a little less blurry but to be an EA 2nd step release it's pretty good.

    Overall, VR is as always a game changer. A pity the CV1 has its pixel limitations.
    I am salivating for the VR headsets available in 2025... They'll be mindblowing and we're quite lucky we could live this incredible era for simracing immersion.

    Very happy with the latest Build 2 update and mostly looked forward to the Bentley and it sounds fantastic and feels great on my TS XW Racer...as does the entire game.
    A New track is always welcome and 'Misano' looks great, but very tightish' corners....will need to practice a lot on that track to get a good time.
    Do not have VR but still happy I can use my Triple Screen set up even though proper T/Screen is not supported as yet, as this does not worry me at the least...but have to reduce Video settings down to 'Low' or 'Off' to get at least 30 - 40 FPS on 5760x1080 using my dated GTX690.

    Change Log...'Proximity Red Arrows' can be 'Disabled' in the HUD...Yay, thanks Kunos

    Vr works better than I expected very impressive .
    Navigation in Vr was a challenging to figure out , once assigned correctly works a charm .
    For early access it’s incredible how fluid it runs .
    Look forward to next build .

    I agree, however the VR menu/ navigation hopefully will be enable for us to use a mouse to navigate instead of buttons and shifters in the future. Jack
