    Viewing your Time Splits:

    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Gallery' option.
    • Live timing monitor does not work properly, so we have to use a small trick to view splits.
    • While viewing your Replay, pause the lap by hitting start, before the end of the first sector.
    • While keeping the replay paused, advance the replay, using the forward arrow on the replay HUD. This will advance the replay to the end of the first sector. That's your T1 split, write it down.
    • Advance the replay again. That will show the lap to date time on the screen, this is your first and second sector time, added together.
    • To post your T1 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual T2 split time, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:

    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.
      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if at least two tires in-line would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track.
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Skype or via other private conversation methods):

    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :

    • The first 2 splits: T1 and T2 times
    • Any settings discussion

    Splits Sharing

    • WRS Participants have traditionally shared splits as a way to reveal their pace without providing the full lap time until the event deadline. Posting of splits is not mandatory, but is considered fair sportsmanship.
    • WRS Admins reserve the right to request posting of splits from members who show a pattern of avoidance or deception in this area.
    • If you fail to comply with a direct request from an admin to post splits for a current or future event, we reserve the right to disqualify your lap from the results.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 185 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):


    • Then attach your 'Best Lap'/'Ghost' replay in zip file form. Everyone submits a replay instead of listing a lap time.
    • You will need to put something in the message body in order to begin a conversation. It doesn't matter what you put, it can even be 1 letter or symbol. Nobody but the Fetchbot is going to see it, so it's sort of pointless, anyhow.
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • If you have an error, don't panic. Just review the instructions for submission and submit again. If you are having trouble and cannot figure it out, please post your question in the race thread.
    • Users can ask the bot for the current submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time and new replay. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • See this screenshot as an example on how to submit:
    [​IMG]

    • The deadline is Monday, August 7th 11:59pm GMT
    • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site

    Why Use GMT?:

    GMT is World Time and the basis of every world time zone which sets the time of day and is at the centre of the time zone map. GMT sets current time or official time around the globe. Most time changes are measured by GMT. Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.


    Replay Checking:


    • Everyone is required to submit a replay for verification. This happens when you submit to the Fetchbot, and the replays will be visible in the leaderboard, once we've reached the event deadline
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
    • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Good luck, :gtpflag:

    Great pick Randy!
    For those unfamiliar with the title reference, here guys, let Jimmy take over...


    Have one last resort to bring back my DS3 to life and I'm not afraid to use it for a combo like this. Get me my tools honey...

    Yeah not my favorite either but that record is great. "Little Wing", "Wait until tomorrow", and my all time favorite Hendrix song, "Castles made of Sand".

    Well, so looking forward to taking part this week. Over a year since I touched GT6. Life has been so busy. Been running the seasonals to build up points so that I could buy whatever we would be using this week. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    I won't be able to run this one due to track errors. May have happened during patch downloads. Affected a couple of other tracks as well...cars going backwards, flying through the air, etc. Have fun. :gtpflag:

    Good ol' Maynard. I listen to a lot of NiN, slipknot, linkin park, radiohead, chevelle, and the like while driving.. seems to help me concentrate more when I'm blurbing out lyrics during time trialing. Hate Metallica though, God help me if we ever get a Porsche combo on silverstone with a Metallica reference. I'll lose it.

    I'm old enough to remember that the vynil at the time had much worst sound than the one of this record. And yes Javier, Little wing is also my favorite (see fantastic versions of Monte Montgomery live and S.R.Vaughan) maybe with Purple haze following :tup: Other songs cant be heard ... Do you play the guitar, @suprajef ?


    Looks like F.A.P. safety mode compared with last week ... (to the ones who have sufferered same distress, I'm with you)
