    I do run it as a fixed room because we had more problems seeing each other when i originally ran the room as unfixed host plus i am on Charter Cable Internet through a wireless router and don't face disconnection issues. My connection is a NAT Type 2 connection.

    We had another efficient night in D3. We finished on time, again, without any disconnect or lag issues. Tensions ran high at times, but it was overall a very fun night of close racing. Once again we had almost every racer finish on the podium at least once, which was great! We had only 4 points separating 1st through 3rd place for the night. @kadrek was particularly dominant with 1x pole, 5x fast laps, and 3x wins. @intoflatlines managed to finish only 1 point behind @kadrek in 2nd place despite having no poles, no fast laps, and not winning a race all night, which once again (it's getting old, I know) goes to show how important consistency is. It's true! :)

    Thanks for the fun night of racing, D3!

    Congrats to @kadrek for the unofficial win!

    Thanks to @nmcp1 for the nice layout!

    Can someone tell me why some of the pictures show in thumbnail view, while the later ones show as smaller .jpg pictures?

    I clicked on thumbnail for all. I have learned i can pick full version but i thought would take up to much real estate on the page. Even though the pictures do look better in full mode, my humble opinion.

    If no one objects i can edit and show full pictures. Any objections?

    I've been running a 'fixed host' room for 7 weeks and have encountered no connection issues or lag. I think this is why:

    My opinion is that if you want to host a Snail event like Sunday night, you first have to be hard wired, no question. I definitely run hardwired. The second thing is your Ping must be less than 100ms and have at least a 'B' line quality. I ran these tests right around when I would open up D3. I ran the tests today but are usually about the same everyday of the week at 6:15ish.

    @JLBowler I'm curious if you checked D3's signal bars before entering and what you saw.

    Of course they look better in full mode but if you click on one of the thumbnails you can browse/scroll through them all in full view, looks very good.

    Getting some blur in your pictures is going to be a combination of changing your shutter speed and the camera pan mode. For shutter speed, the longer it is open (longest is 1/60th sec), the more of a blur you will get. The shorter it is open (slowest in game is 1/8000th sec), the sharper and more still your image will be. Try taking a picture at 1/8000 and then again at 1/60 and you'll see the difference. The pan mode in the camera options will also come into play. One mode makes the camera move with the car differently, so the car will be sharper while the background is blurred, one is the other way around, and I don't know what the third is, lol.

    I did look. It was four out of five bars showing. At least I think it's four out of five. It was all but one bar however many there are.

    I posted them that way on our Div 3 thread. I figured why not enjoy the pictures in full view since everyone in the pictures is also associated with that thread. Should i post them full mode here?


    If the boss says yes, who am i to argue

    experimenting and trail by error is best! You will get surprisingly good shots just by experimenting.

    get to the picture menu with the Triangle button, then choose Panning Mode 2 or 3 and use shutter speed of 1/250 or lower I usually do 1/125.

    im not 100% sure but i think that happens when some pics are still uploading,
    when you go to edit your post and hit "more options" you should try to remove the pics in the post itself and then hit "thumbnail for all" again.

    Check this thread out,
    alot of information about Photomode there:

    @joe_diben ponted me to a old article that @Wolfsatz posted a while back on how to take some great photos.I learned a lot from it but it helps to experiment a lot too.

    Being in the Middle of the country might be helping you. Less distance to travel. My signal had to go from west coast to east. But I am not sure if that is the problem either. Strangely, I have been racing since March and this is the first time I had this problem on a Sunday night. The only change is that I just moved to D6.
