I'm confused. Fixing some stuff I've noticed myself after months, while in the meantime nothing else came up, seems to be a bad thing. Noted.
Comparing me to the Frenchy ... or naming me in the wake of the Frenchy ... Wow, just Wow!
Oh, nothing like that, believe me.
I treasure your stuff and the devotion behind it.
Just had a laugh, some time ago, seeing ACTK struggling with your M1 updates and adding fantasy "fixes".
My mind was delighted with the naughty idea of adding a single pixel to a skin and at the same time adding
a number to the version of the car just to piss him off :lol:

So if I named you in the wake of the nameless...is to celebrate your resilience :cheers:
My humour tends to be oblique at times, and that does not translate well.
 
What I'd like to do is make it so the exhaust "can" on the Bonny Porsche doesn't achieve such nuclear red level (even in the bright sun in Qatar). I messed with the appropriate section (in ext_config.ini while looking at it driving around the track) enough to know that I'm not getting there. About all I could change was how soon it went nuclear. It's now set to off with these Min and Max settings (I figured that much out). It would be enough if it could know it's dark out, and then glow. (I will manually re-instate it for night races)
Anyone here have a handle on this?

apparently there's a F1 2016 mod being released pretty soon, by SUZQ ...
watch the trailer here:
from the trailer it looks impressive...

I have no mods with "a:SUZQ" ... and first time I hear of them(or he or she). Is this a first release ever by this SUZQ? (hard to believe) or known by another name?

ps2: the old existing 2016 F1 mod from a couple of years ago, anyone knows who it is from ?

I like SuzQ's conversions personally. I have been following him for a good bit. Also, I just tried the RSS F1 2020 car, DAMN is it fun! I can't try the csp verson since mine is out of date apparently. Worth a buy!

Looking for some explanations/help regarding Bazza's F2/F3 vintage pack.

Why all the F2 cars of this pack go to the pits after 2 laps? I tried editing AI, engine and other .ini parameters, but the problem persists...

Does anyone has the same problem?
 
Well, that sky has all the earmarks of being the result of climate change, telling us that the end is near... It could be, now that global warming is to blame for all the world's ills... 😐

And now seriously; I'm sorry I can't be of much help, although if I had to bet, I would say that it is some incompatibility of the applications that control the appearance of the sky, such as Sol or Pure, if you use them...
Damn, that's what I was dreading.

As someone who frequently likes to take photos in Assetto, this has been very frustrating.

I've been asking around about this in a bunch of places and have been getting next to no responses.

The only one I did get a response on was to try re-installing Pure and CSP, which didn't fix the issue.

It.. also appears to only happen when using Photo Mode within the replay itself.

If I try to take a picture outside of it, its FINE.

Unfortunately, outside of replay mode my features are more limited, such as not being able to create motion shots. In the replay, the same shot looks like this;

I'm at a loss, here. It seems like it should be fixable judging by what I've discovered, but I don't know what the root of the cause is.
 
Where is this at?

Options > General > UI Modules

It's in the instructions for selecting a companion app for the RSS Formula 4 and maybe one of two other things I've downloaded. I don't know it means.

Speaking about crashes, I have been stable for the past few days now out of the blue this. Disabling DXGI does not seem to help the issue.

Ok seems I may have gotten to the bottom of these random crashes, that I started to experience from an otherwise stable
setup that has been running for the past year.

Seems it was because I had too little free space on my OS drive. When the game runs its can easily use 5 Gigs or more for cache or swap other temp files etc. When the PC runs out of space the game crashes.

So anyone have similar issues make sure your have plenty of free space on your OS drive.

Wasted so much time looking at other things and did not notice how low the free space was on my OS 🤦‍♂️

Now there no more crashing when doing a races. Use to get frequent crashes at the start of the race. 👍


Second test with new ReShade settings. Set video playback quality to 1080p 😍

what you can always try is resetting your CSP settings. Just rename the /Documents/Assetto Corsa/cfg/extension folder to something different. You can restore it later. CM/CSP will create a new one if you start a session. If the problem goes away, its clearly a settings problem.

Gave this a go to see what was happening.
There were no issues when everything was set to default.
As soon as I turned Pure back on, the problem returned.

Just throwing some things at you to see if you've tried them.
Do you have Pure skies installed..maybe remove those and see what happens. (or reinstall them)
Can you change the PP filter in the photo app and see if that fixes anything.
Also maybe change the lighting angle / time of day etc.
Lots of settings in the photo app to mess about with.

One last thing - Open the Pure Config app while in replay and reset/load/import a PURE script from another ppfilter.
These are all things you may have tried already but as you haven't mentioned what you have done I will suggest to try all these things.

I'm sorry to give you this news, I have 465Gb free on my main SSD (the one where the OS is installed), but I have AC crashes, so this may be the solution to your problem, but not to everyone's unfortunately, thanks anyway for bringing your experience.
:)

I'm always having issues with CSP crashes too. For several months or more, I can almost never get a track to load first time. I usually have to quit Content Manager and restart it again for any track to start properly. I've tried everything under the sun to get to the bottom of the problem and nothing seems to work.

Drives me nuts it does! I think I need a dedicated CSP/CM therapist to be permanently on call at this point. 🤪

Sorry should have specified it is not the cause of all crashing but in my case it seems that it was indeed related to low disk space. At least now you can rule that out that has the cause of your problems. ;)

Yes random CM crashes are really annoying, especially if you are in a race. So far not a single crash today. Will let you know if that changes. :lol:

Hi Mark. This is the last message I will write regarding this situation. Obviously I don't blame you, ambassador doesn't bring any pain. Without choosing in detail, regardless of TVR's problems, the point lies at the basis of everything: it didn't take into account what I said at all. It's not like if you can't contact me then you feel entitled to do your own thing. I would have had no problem adding his name among those who helped me, but if you have to "disrespect me" (especially after all the effort I put in because I'm not a professional) then keep your update and that's the end of the story. If a few simple words have not been clear, then I think it is useless to get stuck. I repeat, I have nothing against him as a person but the situation bothers me.


I think he was only joking about the many updates, I don't think he told you that you were acting wrongly. At least that's what I understood from reading
Just my 2 cents worth on the AO skins comment. I think you are doing this the right way with an AO map in the shader. In game your car looks perfectly correct with the shadowing. AC has a great 3D environment so it does this anyway and I don't trust the showrooms over what "in game" produces.

Did multiple re-installs of Pure to no avail, unless I'm misinterpreting what you're saying.

The effect only seems to be present whenever the sun or bright clouds are present. The effect is reduced/practically gone when its darker skies.

I tried different PPFilters and the effect seems to change, but doesn't eliminate the problem.

Both of these shots were taken with everything in the Pure Configurator set to default. Full Noon w/ No Clouds.

Default "Pure" filter.

"Natural Mod" PPFilter (from RaceDepartment)
Screenshot_as_mclaren_senna_topgear_27-1-124-3-32-57.png


The effect is severely reduced in the latter filter, but there's still a glow present which shouldn't be there.

Other filters I tested all fluctuated with this result, some worse than others (a few even as bad as the default filter.)

Actually this can happen with wrong uchimura settings:

Look, yesterday I spent all my free time transferring the skins onto an AO map and then obtaining the most obvious and already established result: little changes. The showroom and previews have always been misleading, yet I wanted to try. Let's look at the bright side, at least the skins are more presentable now (see picture below and yes, this skin will replace the emerald green one - still wip -). Anyway, I don't know what to tell you my friend, I hope he's happy with the money he makes with modsfire.

The car has transparent metal for the sides, in GT6 you can see the effect even though the cockpit view is a simple silhouette.

Thank you so much for this skin pack, that really made my week lol.

Yeah, no offense to ChemFlummi because the work he does is awesome. But was his GT4 project really necessary? I thought the Guerilla cars were good enough for what they were and now here's another talented mod creator wasting their time making alternate versions of cars we already have.

C.F. has had so many other way more interesting projects on the backburner for years now. a Ford GT GT3, a 458 Italia GT3, the Corvette C6.R, but I suppose we need an entire new take on the ACC GT4 port for Assetto Corsa instead when we've already had that for a while now.

I'm sure his GT4 cars will be better than the GUE cars of course, but like man, again another case of a talented modder or mod team spending their time doing duplicate projects instead of working on something that hasn't been done before. I know what mod teams work on isn't democratic but AC is getting old and it'd be nice to see a bit more variety before we finish up here. I'm just so tired of duplicate modern GT cars personally.
I think you missunderstood the fact that Chemflummy gt4 s = guerilla gt4 s ! so no other variant of those cars but an uptade ! Thanks to C.F. helping guerilla to polish even more our gt4's !

Good work.
I won't be going anywhere near his stolen stuff with second rate updates!
 
Resetted the script settings as shown and set the checks in the attached file as shown, but the end result is still the same.

Took a direct screen capture, and switched the track to show that its not a track-specific issue.
UPDATE
Finally found the fix!


I looked at my "Nice Screenshots" settings in CSP and noticed that it was still using custom values for "HDR fix threshold" and "HDR fix exposure", which contrasts with the new Brightness Boost option. I set those to their defaults of 0..

And the final result now looks like this;

Screenshot_as_mclaren_senna_topgear_27-1-124-9-27-25.png


There's a small difference from looking at the sun pre-shot to post-shot, but the difference is rather miniscule that it shouldn't be a problem anymore.

Appreciate all the help, hopefully this'll be useful for anyone else if they run into the same issue that I did.

Hi guys,

random question out of nowhere - i have bought the VRC pt_2019 cars long time ago, but never really raced them. Are there any other cars which fitts together with them to build a well BOPed grid ?

I only have the str_lmp1_audi r18_2016 and the str_lmp_porsche_919_hybrid_2017 which could fit in. But ireally didn´t follow those cars in last 2 years ... so i am completly lost where to look after.

TIA :)

Same here, I have to restart the sessions several times to make them succeed

Do you use Pure's sunblinding shader? It will improve the look of he sun. You have a slider in the PP script...

BTW the new "pure" ppfilter (coming with Pure 0.250 friday) will have a new "photorealistic" slider, where you can gain such camera effects.
