    R3E Hotfix Update.jpg
    Sector3 Studios have deployed a small new hotfix for RaceRoom Racing Experience.


    The new patch, weighing in at 1.5GB, was deployed to RaceRoom Racing Experience on Steam yesterday and aims to address a couple of small issues with the simulation discovered in recent weeks.

    Not particularly exciting for those looking for game changing new features or content, the update that came out on Steam yesterday is nevertheless a useful bit of coding by the team over at Sector3, and comes with some helpful tweaks to the sim sim while we await on of the more substantial build releases in the weeks ahead.

    Highlights of the hotfix include some work around various track improvements and a slightly annoying bug reported by some users who suffered false invalidation of laps under certain circumstances at the legendary Nordschleife circuit.

    You can check out the latest update notes below:

    Game:
    • Fixed a false positive detection of a clock-hack on Nordschleife (with the Nordschleife layout) that was resulting in the first lap started right after loading would always be invalidated.
    Art
    • Brands Hatch - Fixed some extreme bumps, swapped old 2D spectators, small AO tweaks.
    • Sonoma - Fixed an issue where "Long" layout would trigger an off-track incident point event in turn 7 when running a bit wide but still on-track.
    • Falkenberg - Fixed an issue where player could be considered as having entered the pitlane by driving too close to the pit entry. Pitlane entrance has been moved further back.
    • Motegi - Fixed a tyrewall that had no collision and could be driven through on the start/finish straight.

    "Fix" implies something is wrong with it, and nothing is wrong with it :p

    Why, do tell, Paul :)

    Hope this fix has something in it to address an issue as of late. I cold boot the PC, start the game and begin a session the fps is around 45-55. Reboot the PC and start the game again, start a session and all is good with fps in the 80's.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.:confused:

    Not for me it doesn't. 1060 / i7 6700 / 16GB.

    Apart from the fact it sounds rubbish. S3 did say just after release that they would revise the sound but they haven't done it yet.

    I did a club race last week and I had exactly the same happening: impossible to drive after a few minutes. Brand new PC so fresh instal, I did a fresh profile, 2d screen, 1080ti / i7 8700K / 32 GB.
    Our dear @Martin Fiala suggested me to try running the 32 bits exe and that worked flawlessly! At least this could be a work around until hopefully a proper fix.

    I'm running MSI too btw, so maybe there is a conflict?

    Yeah, I encountered the issue again yesterday, for the first time in multiplayer (previously it was exclusive to single player in my case), and switching to 32bit once again did seem to help.

    Though testing it without Afterburner might be in order (and I'll do that as soon as I have some time for that), I am using it as well.

    Interesting, I haven't experienced this yet and I'm not using Afterburner.

    They themselves admitted that the sound is not right and said they would fix it this summer when they could get to the track and re-record it.

    I think I will start a ship building company. I know nothing about it and will not be able to create anything sea-worthy and there will be nothing but problems. Yet, this is what I want to do. Then I will make excuses like: Ship building is very complicated. It takes a lot of hours. It is very expensive. Would anyone feel bad for me?
    Customer: The ship you made me sank.
    Company: Ship building is very complicated.

    Well, the sound is wrong, so I really hope it will get FIXED.
    Not only the transmission whine is bollocks, but the engine sound too.
