    It's here folks, and as well as Imola and tyre compounds for the FR X-17 and FR US cars, there's some tasty bug fixes on the list too! :thumbsup: (I've highlighted my favourites)

    Highlights of this update:
    • Imola is now available
    • Warmup sessions are now an option on dedicated servers
    • Tire compounds for Formula RaceRoom X-17 and U.S.
    • Reduced Join Lags in multiplayer
    • Fixed car-to-car collisions that could sometimes have “magnetic” effects of either repulsion or attraction.
    • Results files generated by the dedicated server now include car class information and results per class.
    • Added warmup option to dedicated servers. When multiple race sessions are enabled, a warmup will be taking place before each of them.
    • Sessions such as free practice, leaderboard challenge, competitions, “try before you buy” are now set to last much longer than anyone could reasonably have a need for (24 hours)
    • Decision to inflict Stop and Go and Drive Through penalties is now more lenient.
    • Slow Down penalties will no longer increase once the player has triggered the automatic slow down of his car.
    • Wall Riding prevention no longer triggers if player is applying pressure on the brakes at the moment of impact.
    • Graphic options : Car reflections can now be set to Low, Medium or High. High has smoother moving reflections, at the price of some performance.
    • Improved AI decision making in pitstops when it comes to tire wear and changing tires.
    • Cases like Hillclimb Icons where there are only 2 liveries in total no longer result in AI all picking the same car.
    • Custom Championship default naming now includes the car class name instead of just the date and time.
    • Resetting the car on the track now takes the raceline in consideration to avoid placing a car right on the ideal line.
    • Added variables for tire compounds in shared memory.
    • Made the “near pitlane” speed overlay warning only show up if player has requested a pitstop. Should prevent accidental occurrences on tracks where the pitlane entry is close to the ideal raceline (ie Salzburgring).
    • Added a default profile for Fanatec 2.5 wheelbase.
    • Fixed a short freeze of the game that was occuring when setting a faster lap in time attack modes.
    • Fixed a typo in a driver name “Roberto Ravaglia” (DTM 92)
    • Fixed an issue with Hockenheim alternative layouts that did not have a defined amount of turns and were messing up ranking/safety rating calculations and results in general.
    • Fixed an issue with the opponents revlimiter being too low on replays recorded in multiplayer that included a Formula RaceRoom X-17
    • Fixed an issue with cursor becoming invisible when using Mouse Steering and coming back from an instant replay.
    • Fixed an issue where player could see the menu disappear when clicking on the timing screen right at the moment of a session switch.
    • Fixed an issue where the pitlane speed overlay would remain visible on screen when finishing a race by driving through the pitlane.
    • Fixed an issue where mouse scrolling in certain menu pages wasn’t working after moving the window or changing the resolution of the game.
    • Fixed an issue with the fuel gauge in the BMW M235i Racing that could sometimes be lighting on and off.
    • Fixed an issue with the data display in the Formula RaceRoom X-17 where it would state P2P instead of DRS in Time Attack modes.
    • Fixed an issue where players could sometimes end up in Garage phase (prior to race) without having the menu visible.
    • Fixed an issue where the player’s car would sometimes use the min/max steering lock values of the previously loaded car.
    • Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes load the low detailed version of the cockpit on top of the high detailed version.
    • Fixed an issue where exiting from an instant replay while in free camera would result in a mouse cursor being visible on top of the gameplay.
