    Yes, Yuri, you don't need to do anything!!! All the cars are gonna be displayed, so no worries at all.
    The only thing I suggest all the drivers to do is don't use MotecAdd DX, because there is a bug when there are more than 25 players. Alekhine is already working on it, but for now there is no solution, so either you guys can use XD to display telemetry in real time or you can use nothing. :D

    WOW WOW WOW.

    With Yassen, and Aritan as a maybe....we have....29 entries!

    Ive been so excited for this, I woke up at 6:30 this morning....i never do that.

    Also for anyone who experiences FPS drops when more cars are present here are a few things to do to help.

    1) Close ALL background programs including Windows update and antivirus
    2) Lower graphics settings in game, and choose "Performance" in your video card settings
    3) Do a fresh restart 1 hour prior to race time
    4) Remove backgroup desktop image for race
    5) Do not download porn for at least 12 hours prior to race ;)
    6) If you use MotecAdd, or MotecDX + Motec Server. Turn it off...I have found both of these DO affect performance. They are useful tools for training, but are not necessary in the race. If you need to know fuel consumption just ask in TS, and or in game.

    Hope these tips help, and Looking forward to seeing you all tonite.

    Keith

    I know I am reposting this, but this thread has gotten long and I want to make sure all people do these things.

    1) Download skinpack http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VIUBANE6

    2) Please review this post regarding Pit stops at this track http://forum.racedepartment.com/gtr-...tml#post358921

    3) Have some fun tomorrow


    Today will be a HUGE field, and will require some patience from everyone. You will not win the race in the first corner, nor will you win it in the first lap. Remember that you must pit once and take 2 tires, or you will be DQed.

    I would love it if everyone would join TS, even if you dont have a mic. TS adds a whole other level to the racing. Last race we had 14 or 15 guys in there and it was great.

    Simply do not turn on Motec Server if you do not want DX to be running.

    And if you are running telemetry in the backgroup as a stand along program just do not start them before opening GTR

    Sean and Keith,
    I didn't have this problem yet (didn't use the +25 mod), but I'd suggest you to rename the d3d9.dll in the main race07 folder (/progam files/steam/steamapps/player/race07, I think it's like this). Just put a .bkp in the end. I think it's safer.
    But if you, Keith, or anyone esle already tested and just don't turning on the server works, ok, just say so everyone (including me :)) knows.
    So sad to miss this... :(

    Aritan, You can actually make it so MotecDX does not start when u start GTR by doing what you said.

    Or if you simply do not start the MotecServer DX willl not be active when you join a race server. There will be nothing. It will said "Failed to connect to server" at the top when u start GTR.

    I am sad for u too Aritan, next week will be incredible at Houston

    Race server with 30slots + weather was just put up!!

    Please try it out!!

    Also, remember it is not an issue to share a pit stall with someone:) Collisions are disabled in the pits!!

    I will try to be back in front of a PC before race start to monitor things.

    Remember air temp is cold today, its like we are racing in early spring or late fall. Tires will be cold and car will be heavy cause of fuel.

    Be courteous to one another, anticipate peoples actions, and be aware of who is around you and where.

    If everyone keeps that in mind, we will have a race for the ages.

    See you all tonite, I will be on the server around 23:00GMT aka 7PM EST

    Is there an appropriate/optimal tire temperature to shoot for? I'm assuming that adjusting the tire pressure affects the tire temperature?...

    Steve I will test on the new server and post my findings, should be able to do it in the next hour or so.

    If im correct in my thinking putting the pressures lower will create more heat in the tires. I might be wrong...gonna test now.

    This should be an interesting test, I have always thought that increasing pressure gave an increase in temp.
    I may have been wrong and doing the opposite to what I should have done.
