    Just like to say personally it's good to see you back on the grid. It is good to see you back, say so us all. I was getting a little concerned of your whereabouts not that it's any of my business. But probably work-related or the other thing, "a woman".:whistling::roflmao:
    I myself have not been able to race match due to carpal tunnel syndrome. I have just recently had surgery on my left hand and awaiting further surgery on the right. And believe me when I tell you it is like having a knife stuck into the palm of your hand and twisted. The left wasn't so bad but I've had it in the right for at least nine years and it's only been getting worse in recent months. And I figured it was time to have something done about it. Not quite healed up on the left hand but already feels better going to have to wait a probably a month before I can get the right-hand done. 56 years old and my body is falling apart. If I was a dog I'd be put down. Give it another year and I'll be playing tic tac toe. With a nurse wiping dribble off my chin.:roflmao: So I'm looking forward to get this fixed as I don't want the Mrs to have to me put down as I do enjoy my racing when I'm fit enough to do so, which isn't very often this year. Which has been a pain in the posterior. Or should I say hands, shoulder, knee.
    Tonight's race was probably my first in three weeks.
    Did a little practice on another game a couple of days ago and thought about joining the club event but too much pain and decided against it, bummer.:(
    Anyway enough of this waffling on, good to see you back mate.:thumbsup:

    What good racing, with some intense battles throughout the grid and continuing for many laps. A pleasure to watch.
    Also nice to see returning members, good to have them back on track, as well as some fresh faces.
    The usual congratulations to the podium and commiserations to those who suffered connection problems.
    Looking forward to Sunday's race.

    Know that feeling well mate, hopefully the surgery will give you some relief.

    Don't forget to send the crash dump file to S3, it helps them and you sort out connection issues.

    great racing as usual.
    Mandatory teamspeak so I could enjoy all the rumble... :p:cool:
    Wasn't able to hold the tempo with @Vangelis Parginos, but who cares :rolleyes:
    I think it was @patrick fournier who was pushing me so hard, mate, you made me wet... :laugh:
    Unfortunately you started slowing down, what happened, tyres tired?
    Finished twice 4th with lot of fun.
    See you next week, somewhere between walls of Macau.

    Maybe stress test your pc or check the settings in R3E. If you have a crash dump file maybe send it to S3 Devs.
    Fingers crossed for you for Sunday.

    Well usual catastrophe for meeeeeeee!
    First race was going swimmingly, holding 7th, then at 7 mins in, my front tyres started flashing orange, so with the usual Martin logic I thought I'd ease off the brakes a bit, straight into the gravel :rolleyes: not sure where I ended up, fun as always though!
    As for race 2, decent start, bit of side by side action going into the hairpin, all very exciting, then darkness prevailed, PC had turned itself off. :confused: Investigations this morning have revealed, as anticipated, I'm a total numpty, turns out I'd worked the power plug out of it's socket with my over excited knee :rolleyes: Jeez, if all this wasn't hard enough on its own! :redface:
    Oh well, onward and upward, see you at the next event! :thumbsup:

    That was some great, intense racing. This combo in particular is brutal, I don't think I've been this focused in any other race so far.
    Indeed, my tires were starting to melt and in the last two laps maybe I was really struggling for grip. I think once or twice I almost lost the car and came close to taking you out, so I eased off a bit, waiting for you to make a mistake that didn't come. Masterful drive mate! I'm going to look back at the replay, that was so much fun (hell, I might even post a video of it)

    Say, about that, @Martin Fiala, how do you just cut out TS without killing all the other sounds in your videos?

    You're just jealous I can still draw those kinds of emotions from people :D

    For me, this is pretty easy - I have multiple soundcards in my PC (because I was unable to find a single one that would meet all my needs). So my game (and pretty much every other desktop app) is using one soundcard and TS is using another soundcard (which also gives me the option to tweak my game and TS volume independently on the fly). I have set OBS so it records three sound tracks - the first track is the first soundcard output, second track is (unsurprisingly) the second soundcard output (meaning TS in this case) and the third track is for my mic (so usually about 90 minutes of silence with some background noise). And then, when processing the recording, I either cut the other two audio tracks, leaving only the game audio, or, in case I want to include TS - which I haven't done for quite a while now, given it's near impossible to get permission from everyone - I just do a mixdown of the three tracks, tweak the audio levels and do stuff like that before uploading.

    If I'm using Shadowplay (which I was often forced to do with AMS), then it only records the first soundcard output and the TS is not recorded at all, as Shadowplay only supports one audio device (though it has recently gained the option to record two audio tracks, but it seems the second track is limited to input devices only, like mics).

    I believe you can do this even with just one soundcard, though, but you have to install some software, create virtual audio devices and such, and it can get a bit convoluted. But for me, the above is by far the easiest way.
