    IMPORTANT: your previous menu, graphical and game settings will be lost.

    Got to try this one once I get home. Hoping for enough performance improvements. Now, just 1.0 left. I really hope we get a livery editor in 1.0, because some cars have very few official liveries. I hope they haven't decided/had to drop the livery editor idea that they were discussing in the RaceDepartment interviews.

    I spend some time with the update. My impressions so far...

    Pros:
    - Up to 31 AI cars now with no impact on performance (CPU does the job)
    - Interesting new HUD radar when you get near to another car
    - Nissan and Monza are fun

    Cons:
    - Performace has taken a hit GPU-wise, i had to adjust settings to achieve 60fps @1440p, true 4K is out of the question now

    Over on RD they are reporting mirrors being the big fps killer in this release. Turn off mirrors to get back your lost fps.

    Dear #ACCompetizione followers,
    a new hotfix is ready for download! Please restart your Steam client and have a look at the changelog below!

    IMPORTANT NOTE for Oculus Rift users: we recommend launching the game by-passing Steam VR, adding "-vr" to Steam launch options for ACC as described in this image in order to avoid possible performance issues and stuttering.

    Will the payoff for a 1080p non VR user be big enough to warrant doing this? Since ver 0.6, ACC has been running fine. Granted I've turned a lot of things off, and switched to Temporal AA. If I wiping the folders and reinstalling ACC means I can turn a lot of effects back on and still stay locked at 75fps (monitors limit), then I'll do it.

    Probably not. I think that was mainly for the first 0.6.0 patch. There were some issues with the mirrors and other things which have been fixed in 0.6.1

    I haven't touched ACC since it first launched, it felt meh, however i decided to boot up ACC tonight and jump on, and i am blown away, how far they've progressed, ACC is so unforgiving, compared to AC, for example the implemented Tire Damage Simulation, i was mid way in a race when i started to get a leak, and i didn't bother going to the pits, and i realized as i was losing tire pressure, the more challenging it became to drive. The amount of detail they have put in, is absolutely insane. I I will for sure be playing more of this! Quite excited for the full release, i will for sure dump plenty of hours in ACC!

    Glad its actually coming out soon, I only really played the third build when the Ferrari came out, I didnt want to play too much of it before the full release came out. I Just hope that this launch is better then the first game as that didnt feel complete at all when it first came out it.

    I am happy you like it now. I could see exactly what we have today in the Early Access coming since i first launched it September 12th in the first ever version. I was blown away right from the start to be honest because what actually matters was there from day 1, thats sounds, physics and graphics (if you had the hardware to push it to epic and over 100fps).

    I've got to thank ACC for improving my tyre management skills. Because my laptop is a dinosaur, I could only do hotlap/short hotstint type events. The outlap and especially how you warm up your tyres without overly degrading them is crucial, and the skills I learned has helped me immensely in GT Sport's FIA race qualifers. I'm not the fastest driver and in races I usually lose places on raw pace alone, but my quali has always been better than expected to compensate for it (along with good racecraft and patience with tyres in the race).

    ACC and AC made me drive cleaner in every other racing game, even though it was not actually really needed as some of them were also just arcade :D

    One thing that really surprises me about this game is that it isn’t hard just for the sake of it. Sometimes I feel like sims go down the rabbit hole of making a game as awkward to play as possible on pad but ACC is amazing with the Dualshock 4. Roll on May 29th!

    Kunos should hire the guy from Pure Rock Crawling for the suspension and tire model.
