@hooker4 - great pics!
You use photoshop?
I was not wiping out in any of your pics!
I have not experienced any changes to the qualifying order.
I am wondering, once a qualifying session has begun....only those participants continue onto the race, right? or might new entrants skew the order in an open room?
I know its out there but, might that have been the glitch?
Tried the triple monitor today. They implemented them nicely.
However after trying some laps I realized something. How unbearable the frame rates are on GT6. I nearly got nauseated.
There is no way I'll be able to race on GT6 after racing at a capped 105 FPS. Seriously the FPS drops so bad on GT6 it feels like a strobe light.
So with that. I'm out completely. Go ahead and pull me off the roster for GT. However I will continue to follow and hope the iRacing side develops.
I was wondering how that pic was going to turn out! Sure was close back there!!!
I only have replays for 2 races to do pictures from for D4. I know that there is a way to find replays, but i cannot find them. I'll take the fish, Where are the located?
No fish. Here is a place for SNAILs to trade replays. Here is an instructional video on how to get them in a format for transfer to and from the google store.
@JLBowler perhaps including that in your table of contents would be good?

Thank you all for racing and being a part of S.N.A.I.L.
@Oshawa-Joe can you update the Drivers list please? Thanks!
You must be getting some major fps drops to notice them, as very few people can perceive a difference between 60 and 30. Have you tried the restore file system? I would label that critical maintenance for every PS3, doubly so for heavy gamers or netflix watchers.
Another possibility is simply poor frequency matching between your ps3 and monitors. Keep in mind the PS3 is designed for tvs, I don't know the exact hertz that it desires, but if they are out of sync it can produce fps drop like symptoms. I don't know what monitors you're using, but you could play around with them and maybe find a better match.
P.S. You're drastically reducing the life span of your video card letting it run wild at 105 fps, I would suggest force capping it at 60.
Not telling you what game to play, just offering some advice, please don't take it the wrong way.
Hope it helps!
Congrats to you both, and thanks for turnin me on to this league, and all the help you guys have given to make me a better player!!!

Here is the D6 "strip" from Combo 1 Race 2! Enjoy
Great comic strip! Very cool.
Somewhere, Scott McCloud is approvin' man!
I am not going to race for a few weeks as I will be practicing with my wheel. So further notice on when I will be back.
First one is on me when we meet someday.
On raceday... I'd like to 'have one' on y'all.... but let's be real, even virtually.... Congrats!
You will be surprised how quickly it helps, Jake. Good luck and come back soon.
Thanks guys! Hard to believe it's been two years! Looking forward to getting back on the grid as soon as the ski season ends. Only five more weeks!!!!!
Looking forward to that cold one Handlebar! Thanks!!!

Thanks to @nmcp1 for the nice layout!
Thanks to everyone who voted. The results were overwhelmingly in favor of the "freeze". I'll make a note of Prize C's new power when I post the results later (I'm waiting for post #50970 and post #50971 to do so). If this experiment works out this month, we'll implement fully going forward. If, however, chaos and confusion take over the prize selection process, we'll have to reconsider. The best thing everyone can do is be aware of the process and be ready to make prize decisions if you unofficially won your division or are in a position to win if the unofficial winner collects any penalties.

With the new season underway there are allot of new racers in D2. Whenever you have new drivers racing against one another for the first time there is always the fear that chaos is just around the corner while everyone learns the others driving style. I'm glad to report that even though some of us have never raced one another we all still maintained a level of respect that ensures close hard racing that has become a hallmark of S.N.A.I.L. Well done racers!
Congrats to @zstovall for taking the win for the night!
Full data set can be found here.
Great job coach with the pics.
Congrats AJK VAIL and TCRASH for the 2 years anniversary.
Congrats to DPinho for the win last night on D4 and AJ for the fierce competition. I would love to have you both joining me on D3... actually I would love to have you all D4's joining me on D3
I'm really digging that second shot! I mean I want it framed and put on my wall..
I'm curious about this @Mirado_7. I just upgraded my PC with a Gigabyte GTX 770 video card with 4 GB of ram. I've seen peaks of 300 fps in iRacing, but am usually around 230. This is using the recommended iRacing setup, not utilizing all the ram available if I'm not mistaken.
How is the lifespan reduced by going above 60 fps?
I have not checked my PC stats for the compatibility yet, but this sounds like I need to know...
AWESOME. I Wish I was in d6. Always wanted to be featured in a comic strip. Someday....
It's only because it's my car.
It's just extra work you're making/letting it do, and therefore creating more heat. And heat is enemy number one with all things electronic.
Ya like when my TV turns off unexpectedly.
Is 60 fps a limit of the display we're typically using or the eye/brain interface? And anything above that is irrelevant?
Sure looks good though
I told you I know voodoo, stay away from my bumper.
I've often read that the human eye cannot detect anything above 30FPS. I know for certain anything over 120 is a complete waste. As an example I will point out your household electrical system. Here in the US, our electrical systems run on a 60Hz alternating current sine wave. What this basically means is, voltage is at a 0 value 120 times every second. Take a look at any incandescent light bulb in your home. Can you tell it's actually turning off 120 times every second? If you can, you should probably stop doing whatever drugs you're on. In Europe the sine wave is 50Hz, not sure what those crazy folks up in Canada have, but, it's one (60Hz) or the other(50Hz). At any rate, you could compare the AC sine wave to FPS, in a general sense. What jags most humans into thinking they can see FPS rates, above 30, is when it changes drastically. What really smooths out video is the monitor's refresh rate. 2ms refresh rates used to cost a fortune. 1ms was even higher. I haven't went looking at monitor's or TV's refresh rates in quite some time so not sure what the standard these days is.
