    Steward's Comments:

    Where else would you take this car this week? The 962 is a joy to drive and keeps pushing all the way until the end of Mulsanne. And those lines...

    Saving Replays, Viewing sector times and Submissions:
    • You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below).
    • Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the sector markers to see it listed.
    • Simply post the splits that are shown in the live timing screen, and our Fetchbot will parse them and add them together for your total sector time.
    • When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the posted lap time will result in a DQ.
    • Remember - When you submit your time you're also declaring that your run is 100% clean. We request replays for the purpose of verifying to all those concerned that the drivers claim is correct, which in turn safeguards the integrity of the driver, and just as importantly, the WRS. The golden rule is to check your replay before submission. If you’re still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if you’re still undecided, run the lap again.

    (Best Lap Replay Save)

    [​IMG]

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Skype or via other private IM service.):
    • Total Lap Time.
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total lap time.
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline,your full lap time will be considered to be shared publicly which contravenes our rules. Even if you've only shared with Friends.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 6 sectors: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, and T6 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 81 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
    • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
      X:XX.XXX
      (Example-) 1:10.100
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • For those of you who were used to submitting replays on GT6, you no longer have the ability to export the files.
    • 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 81 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 81 Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, June 17th 2019 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:
    • Division winners and overperformers will be required to submit a replay via the GT Sport Share function for verification AFTER Unofficial Results have been posted.
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Replay Verify Required).
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification.

    Just had my first run, even though I went past the first sector it still cut my lap off right at the finish line, you can just barely get a glimpse of the total lap time before it cuts out, I got lucky. I’ll go through 2 sectors from now on when I’m done.

    Fun combo!! It’s nice to drive this car with less power than under BoP, it’s much more drivable. :)

    The little red and white posts in the Esses in S1 - are they allowed to be hit or is it just the green cones that are off limits please?

    I would assume going off previous events, those are also off limits.

    How do you share the photos to here from the game, I have a couple of track limit questions too. Along the course, and main straight you have dashed white lines either side, is this the track limits or just the solid ones? The answer to this may answer my next question at the end of the back straight you can go really wide on tarmac over a blue and yellow bit before a left turn. This is past a dashed white line too. The rumble strip is in line with the dashed white line so if you can cross these I guess you would have to be back on the main area by then.

    I think it's safe to assume that those dashed white lines along the main straight are the track boundaries. The best way to think about track limits here is if there's a rumble strip present, then that's your limit. In the absence of a rumble strip, the line (dashed or solid), is your limit. It's safe to go beyond a line only if there's a rumble strip beyond that line, but the blue and yellow strip itself can never be crossed with more than two wheels.

    As for the the photos, I have an overly complicated way of doing it :lol:. Maybe @GTP_Guido, @Pigems or someone else might have a simpler way they can share that I can learn as well :tup:

    Thanks, I kept within them for my lap, I think I know how now after a look around, I share them on the game, then can save them from the GT website.

    Yes those are off limits too, I'll change the wording on the OP.

    Take the pic, export it to a pen drive, upload it to your computer and then use the "Upload a file" function here to post it in the thread. White line rule can be confusing sometimes and we are aware of it, but there's many spots in the track where an unfair advantage can be taken by going too wide and that's what we are trying to avoid.
    I'll let you know once you post your pics :tup:

    I'm not back on till tomorrow so will do it then. Might be worth counting the dashed line as that too, to prevent any confusion.

    That’s how I do it too, share photos in game and then I just take a screenshot from my phone after opening the image from the GT website. :)

    @Pigems @MikeyLCR you're tied on the board after six sectors. That's amazing!
