    I didn't. I did an early braking and I was on right side of Emo. Pushing you? Nevermind. :sly:

    I have watched the replay of the start many times and also the 9 laps of the race that you completed. There was a very slight touch at the start, but not from Harsk - he was very slow off the line and was down to 4th place by the 1st corner. It is a tight track and there was too much contact from all drivers.

    Hopefully people will drive more carefully in future on other tight tracks or we may have to try rolling starts or do a lap behind a Pace Car - or avoid the tight tracks which would be a shame as there was some very good and close racing. At times it was too close, but this was mostly down to occasional lagging.

    While Lex is indeed true on this point, I think a lot of the problems were caused by some of the drivers not being able to see all of the cars. And in some cases seeing completely different action on their screens!

    Below are some comparison shots from what Sick posted to what I have captured from my replay.
    1.jpg 1-1.jpg 2.jpg 2-1.jpg 3.jpg 3-1.jpg 4.jpg 4-1.jpg
    You can see the differences quite clearly! Some cars are missing and Flaco isn't flying!


    I know I couldn't see Max or Harsk all through the meeting and other drivers may or may not have seen them (or indeed other cars) either. And they may have not seen the other cars themselves.
    While I don't know they are there and drive through them, the game on some screens sees this differently and this results in the flying Flaco and possibly other strange physics problems.
    The other thing is that while I can't see some cars someone else might be able to. Now they would appear to be driving erratically to me but all they are doing is trying to avoid, or being nudged by a car that I can't see - and this could quite easily cause accidents. And also if I suddenly drive through a car that someone else can see, that too may cause a loss of concentration.

    The other two problems that I can see is that if you don't know a car is in front of you, you won't race with it (try to overtake) and therefore lose positions. And also Sick if at some point you can't see a car(s) you won't know where it finishes in the race.

    Not sure what to suggest - maybe a roll call before the races to check who can see who? And perhaps a disconnect & reconnect - although I did this and it didn't fix it.

    @Harsk100 - I saved the replays but don't have the equipment to make videos from them. I can export the files but as far as I know you can't import them into your GT6. Unless told otherwise? You wouldn't appear in them anyway!
    The times I have seen you there does appear to often be a lot of lag on your cars.
    I think Lex was a bit disheartened and quit. He may be back??

    Anyway here's a few proper pictures from the first race. (No Max or Harsk!)

    But I have to see who pushed Lex. I'm very concerned about it! I'll PM you!

    Oh my god! I never saw Lex very angry... I think that he withdrew from this championship. But I never do these bad things to him! And not even in this championship! Get well soon, Lex!

    Lex. I am so sorry, it was me. if I could have apologised at the time I would have done. it wasn't intentional and it wasn't an attempted overtake, I broke slightly b4 u did but I locked a front wheel slightly and just touched your back end. it was the smallest of nudges and I was suppressed you still didn't make the corner. at the time I was sorry it had happened and waited 4 u 2 recover. I’m sorry you've got upset and I apologise, but it was just a racing incident. please come back.

    I sent him a PM about it. Hope that he accepts your apology. I didn't want to concern as a result of being his rival but we're friends too! So, I had to do what my mind does and accomplish my job on concerning on him. If I wouldn't do this, he might not return to championship. We're to race for fun! :cheers:

    @Emotional - It was just a light tap. I think the physics got a bit screwed up on that first corner - see the Sick/me comparison pictures above.


    And some shots from the second race. I could only see 4 cars in this one!

    :tup: Sounds good. Especially since I've yet to use this car in the championship.

    No, right thread! I will be using the 507 in a few weeks time. So I'll certainly give your tune a go.
    But don't tell anyone else. Oh damm, to late. :p

    This is really anoying.

    Harsk, I probably hit you pretty hard there but just like you can see in Ifs picture, you simply didn´t appear on my screen you was completely invisible to me, never would I run into anyone like this. So apologies to you and anybody else I might have hit, I saw like 3 sometimes 4 people on track in the last races. We really should try for a pre-race roll call as IfAndOr suggested! :tup:

    And all of us might want to look after our connection and do our very best at trying to get it as good as possible.

    I will link IfAndOrs post from last page again because I find it most important that every participant works on this, so we can all enjoy the races to the full.

    I actually didn't see you on race. But I got lucky by letting my race. It wasn't real problem because I qualified 1st and as you can see, you were taking inside, but although I got 4 seconds penalty by false start, I catched up quickly. I got inside of rubber and took the lead. I saw 3 persons, but that's ok.

    I don´t think it´s ok, wouldn´t you apreciate to see the entire grid instead of just 3 cars? I mean I can race 2 other random players in an open lobby every day, there´s nothing special about it but I joined this series to race 15 of same people weekly, at best, and I´d like to see them all on track.

    I didn't mean that 3 drivers were ok, Rolo. I wanted to tell that I'm trying my best to see all drivers. Got it?

    That means that you were in a different race to the one I was in with 4 other drivers! Perhaps we should have a separate points table - Only kidding Sick. :p

    Hi Rolo - What definitely is a bit of a joke is GT6's online connectivity problems. Got any tips from your experience?
