  3. Ak1504




    Reworked the Yellow Flag code logic to address all cases where penalties would wrongfully be handed out.

    Fixed various issues with Data Displays

    Fixed a crash occurring on some machines with specific sound systems. As a result, all sound profiles are now listed in the Sound Settings menu instead of attempting to auto-detect.

    Fixed an issue where the player could get stuck when accessing the Timing screen right at the moment the qualifying session ends and game switches to race session.

    Fixed an issue with external links to auto-start the game and join a specific multiplayer server when the livery ID wasn’t passed in the link.

    Fixed an issue where “Session Freeze” setting wasn’t passed to the dedicated server.

    Fixed a case where certain track cuts would wrongfully result in instantaneous DQ for the player (ie: cutting T1 of Anderstorp onto the pitlane exit path)

    Fixed an issue where dedicated server could sometimes remain stuck in race session

    Fixed an issue where DNF players could sometimes show up in the race results .json file with their logged laps listed twice.


    Brought back the possibility to set the resolution using a startup argument.

    Made it so that the SteamVR Supersampling setting will be used for the resolution only if the user doesn't use a startup argument for setting the resolution.

    Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI:

    Updated the Audi TT cup handling after feedback from Philip Ellis. More biting in the front at turn in, and looser rear under braking.

    Fixed a glitch where code would report some RPM when ignition was on but engine wasn’t running.

    Fixed an issue where code would briefly lock up all four wheels in certain cars when control is handed from AI to player (ie: rolling & leaderboard starts)


    Nürburgring & Nordschleife: updated to 2017 visuals after our visit to the 24H earlier this year. Main pitwall logos, old pitwall color, BMW bridge, BMW sign at Brünnchen, T13 pitwall, NGK chicane logo, carousel banner, armco flags, graffitis, new fencing.

    Paul Ricard : fixed some floating elements after the camber changes in last patch.

    Zandvoort : Updated S/F gate visuals to current logo of the track.

    Portal & Backend:

    Added team field to profile details. This will (for now) be used in MP race results and standings seen in portal.

    Hotfix 30-06-2017

    - Fixed issue with long loading times.

    Known issue: If a player leaves in race 1, other players will end up in black screen after session switch into race 2. We are investigating the problem but in the meantime we suggest you avoid multi format races if possible.

    Hotfix 04-07 2017

    Fixed critical issue where severe problems would occur when a player left or disconnected during multiplayer race.

    We apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused you and thank you for your patience.
  5. Ak1504

    Update 02-08-2017

    New content:

    BMW M235i Racing


    Lowered default minimum force setting for Thrustmaster wheels.
    Fixed Slow Down penalty calculations on turbocharged cars
    Fixed cut detection logic on tracks with pitlane close to the track like Laguna Seca where simple cuts would result in disproportionate penalties.
    DRS no longer deactivates from lateral G’s
    Changed so game stops reporting error 13 when leaving a game session after only losing a couple heartbeats during the session
    Change so the pitlane speed information overlay always shows when inside the pitlane.
    Fixed a case where cars would appear to be hovering above tarmac on pre-race screens.
    Fixed some data displays showing a ticker counting up to 0 at race starts.
    Fixed an invalid lap overlay that was sometimes showing without any text.
    Added a button to view the leaderboards upon finishing a hillclimb run so we could get rid of the non elegant solution of showing the position bar to inform the player of his position.
    Changed the logic for the “Restart” button in leaderboards & competitions so it no longer purges your best lap and can still show the live time diff to your ghost on the data display.
    Fixed a message wrongly stating the next lap would be invalidated in Hillclimb runs.
    Fixed an issue where the HUD elements would sometimes be moved when coming back from an instant replay.
    Fixed a crash occuring sometimes when cycling through cameras in the pitlane.
    Game now aborts start-up if no display adapter resolution was found.


    Added a dedicated server setting to set a latency limit (in milliseconds). Any player caught consistently above that limit will be automatically booted.
    Added a dedicated server setting to force the race to end after a set time (in seconds). When set to OFF, the server will always wait for a race winner.
    Fixed an issue where the dedicated server would sometimes not wait for late joiners to complete their loading sequence and proceed to next session anyway.
    Fixed a case where disconnected players would sometimes remain visible on the HUD track map.

    Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI:

    All cars: new external gearshifts added.

    Added a new selector for the strength of the collision effects in the FFB options menu
    VR - Added an optional start-up argument to make the monitor presentation of the VR session be toggled on from the start, without needing to use the keybind. Mostly used for events or regular streamers. Add "monitor" to your VR start-up argument, for example "-vr 1.5 monitor" to toggle on the monitor presentation.
    VR and Triple Screen - Fixed an issue with skydome being offset vertically as well as appearing broken in rearview mirrors on large track scenes like the Nuerburgring.
    Triple Screen - Tweaked clip plane value for camera to avoid seeing cut objects, at the cost of some flickering in the distance.
    AI - further improvements to make AI more careful around pit-entry, decreasing risk of AI overtaking a pitting car on wrong side of path
    AI - further improvements of AI side-by-side logic
    AI - Improved their decision making in changing tyres or not when having to refuel in a non mandatory pitstop race
    Potential fix for a 64-bit crash when entering a race with triple screen enabled, after applying changes to graphics options.
    Fixed a crash reported when using an OSW / DD wheel with MMOS FFB 2014 in 64-bit
    Fixed a wrong Bosch label on the Callaway C7R virtual display.
    Fixed an issue where the front headlights would turn off if the taillights were broken by an impact.
    Code reworked to attempt and get rid of an issue where some controllers are sending throttle and brake inputs constantly until the user moves the wheel or a pedal.
    Fixed a case in Spa Combined when game would think player has left the pitlane if player was leaning against the exterior wall at La Source.
    Changed replay comment field in media hub to be multi-line. Increased max length when renaming replays to 128 and comment to 256.

    • Deployed some various server side fixes.

    Additional note:

    Related to the Incident reports, players can have the incidents output showing live in their game through the "Chat" system messages (yellow text) by doing so:

    - Right-click the game in your Steam library
    - Select Properties
    - In the window that opened, in the General tab, click "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS"
    - Add: "-repSystemDebug" (without the quotation marks)
    - Start the game

    11th July 2018 - RaceRoom has been updated


    A new track is now available! Joining the list of WTCC venues comes Twin-Ring Motegi. This track, located in Japan, was on the calendar of the final three seasons of the FIA WTCC series: 2015, 2016 and 2017.

    This is not all, we're also bringing a complete overhaul of various cars. The biggest change being a big merger between GTR 1 and GTR X car classes. They're now upgraded to our highest physics quality level and closely balanced together.

    For those of you who were around in 2012 when RaceRoom was in open beta, you'll remember the Nissan GTR GT1. After all these years sitting in a dark virtual garage, this car has now been unleashed and added to the GTR 1 class as well.

    The Pagani Zonda R was also upgraded and now lives in its own single-make cup class with many liveries available.

    Another car received some physics upgrades: the Formula RaceRoom Junior. Alex Hodgkinson, our physics designer, has treated you with his own version of what this car should handle like, all based on the data and experience collected when he was racing such cars a few years ago.

    We are very happy to reignite the ADAC GT Masters spirit in RaceRoom!

    The Porsche 911 GT3 R, Mercedes AMG GT3, Audi R8 LMS, BMW M6 GT3 and the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R have arrived in the original liveries of the ADAC GT Masters 2018 season.

    No matter if you want to repeat the title run of Precote Herberth Motorsport, drive the popular Porsche of IronForce by RING POLICE, beat the times of our test driver Philip Ellis in his own car or try to make it through the first turn in Hockenheim in Maxi Götz‘ Mercedes AMG GT3 – you can experience an unforgettable season of the ADAC GT Masters now in RaceRoom.

    In addition to the car pack, we are bringing Most Autodrom to the already vast selection of tracks available in RaceRoom. This 4.2 km long circuit located in the northwest of the Czech Republic was built in 1983 and has since then regularly hosted many motorcycle, truck and car racing events. In 2018 it became part of the ADAC GT Masters calendar, proving to be an excellent motorsport venue and a real challenge for the drivers, with its high speed sections nicely embedded in the environment and a distinct lack of artificial run-off areas.
