It is strange to hear that horizontal and vertical positions are both affected.
It makes me think of one more test. That is to have a look at both eye views simultaneously on the LFS window on your monitor. Normally only one eye view is displayed.
In View Options you should see an option "Monitor view" and you can select "double". Then you should see the whole render target on your monitor and you can see if that has the offset you described. That is the render target that is presented to the driver software.
We get a lot of unpleasant posters, scammers, spammers and trolls. More than you probably realise! And we've had to deal with racism, sexism, homophobia and so on. It's a pity that we have to deal with that, when all we are doing is working on a form of entertainment for people to have fun.
Anyway, our job as moderators is to keep this forum a place where you can have civilised discussions. Somewhere that people can come to talk about Live for Speed (and other things, a bit). The unmoderated places on the internet are not really a good place to be.
We try to be consistent, obviously it's not always possible. But the guy who got banned yesterday and couldn't make a post without insulting someone, has 11 accounts. You can probably understand what this means. It's a troll. So we remove that account. Simple as that. Like The-Great who posted above, with one of his 5 accounts. He used to be a good guy but gradually over the years has become nothing more than a troll.
If you want to know if you are a troll or not, try asking yourself this question: "Do I have multiple user accounts on a single site?". If the answer is yes, then most probably you are a troll.
I'm just going to take you at face value here in case you really don't understand.
The guy who got banned, it's not because he said something like "cracking isn't really all that bad". It's because, in his first post, he accused me of 'power tripping' and being 'retarded'. And that was using one of the several multiple accounts he has created (another sign of a troll).
I'm guessing it's someone from the USA by the choice of insult words in this and subsequent posts. I'm not certain how it is in the USA but over here in England, it's not considered to be polite, reasoned and acceptable speech to use the word 'retarded' really in any context.
It's obviously not power tripping to ban someone who advertises the use of a fake master server. So please, turbotron, if you are a thinking person, take a moment to consider what you are saying.
Any by the way I'm in no need of a holiday, thanks! Work is going well and I'm having a good time doing it. Having fun here in the snow though yesterday and today.
This is an insulting way of talking. We have many people here who have a different opinion from me or other developers but they can state their opinions in a civilised way.
This account of yours was banned because of your insulting and aggressive way of talking.
If you can't see how your posting style is aggressive, rude and unpleasant, you have a lot to learn and you need to become socially adjusted. You would get beaten up if you spoke this way in real life but you think it's OK to talk this way on the internet.
It's rude and unpleasant posting that gets people banned, not disagreeing with the developers.
It's just one of these aggressive fools who have many accounts to try and hide their identity, because they want to insult people instead of talking nicely. I think it shows some personal feelings of inadequacy. It's a pity because the person seems not entirely stupid, and people could listen if it talked reasonably. But it wants to insult other people, I guess it feels it has been insulted through its life so wants to take it out on others.
Eric does want to update the interiors. It's obviously important. It's not as high a priority as finishing the tracks, because they don't have any particular problems with shadows.
The existing tracks have issues with the new shadow system because some geometry needs to be rebuilt to cast shadows correctly. Basically if they can be viewed properly from above then the shadows cast properly. But some tracks are so old there are buildings without a roof, and single sided geometry that looks wrong in the new system. There's also the new lighting system and the tracks can be improved to take advantage of that, e.g. shine on surfaces.
That means we can't release the new graphics until all the tracks are updated. The cars don't have this problem so they aren't as high priority. It's not a matter of opinion, it's just logic.
We have been working on graphics for some time now. A new lighting system allows more varied and realistic surface properties and we have a new shadow system. All tracks must be updated to take advantage of the new features.
This month we have taken some screenshots at the Autocross track, featuring the large car park, skid pad and drag strip. In the open configuration you can now drive between all areas using connecting roads and there is an extended car park beside the original Autocross area.
The trouble is, you don't yet know the solutions or the correct way of working with the modified editor. Several very experienced layout editing people gave a lot of feedback during the development process. So all the points you mention have already been solved.
For the above point, you need to know the difference between O and CTRL+V.
O: Place a new object - it is not now selected.
CTRL+V (paste): Place a new object and keep it selected.
You can transition (toggle) between the above states by pressing CTRL+C (copy)
This is very useful because there is now a clear separation between the PGUP / PGDN keys either operating on the objects that have already been placed, or the objects in hand that have not yet been placed. Instead of both at the same time as it was in the old editor. Now you have the choice. It was very messy before, even if you got used to it.
Costa, I would really like to ban you from the master server. But in that case you would be forced to stay on the cracked version. That's not what we want. It would be good if you could put your efforts into making sure people leave the cracked version and get onto the proper version, so we can continue to develop Live for Speed.
Or maybe you don't want it to be developed any more, and you just want us to go and get another job?
If I see another report of you advertising on our genuine servers, I'll remove your access to LFS services.
