That makes at least two of us.

Please do not remove the ability to save 'some' replays manually (autosave=1). I do not have enough free space to save everything but i'd still like to be able to save 'some' replays without having to remember to turn the autosaving on (and off).

I don't think having 3 options for the remote saving of mprs is more confusing than for example the /start= setting.

Quote from SamH :Is there a plan to change this at a later date, perhaps? We'd happily buy a new HD for our server to save MPRs there but if we have to run separate installs in order to collect MPRs, we can't then use the same ban file to maintain LFS server security. We need to be able to do both in order to achieve the level of licence accountability we're aiming for.

What would be bliss would be either
/autosave 2
/mprdir ctra2a

or even
/autosave mprdir

meh. read the thread, sam!

Any way, I just tried it and it is working great (on linux)!

Edit: I've also tried streaming the server-side temp.mpr with filurs php version of lfstv and it's working flawlessly.

I hope you all understand the possibilities this brings ...

Quote from Scawen :NOTE : you can't have 2 dedicated hosts in the same folder both saving an MPR.

Ouch. In my case that's very unfortunate.

Any chance of:

// Name of temporary mpr
/temp_mpr=temp_mpr_host1.mpr

Edit: note to linux admins, you'll have to create /data/mpr manually or else nothing will be written.

You could always press H to bring up the message history or open deb.log.

I think they chose friday because that's usually the day (test) patches are released.

Well done as always Jens! I was wondering why there was such a large amount of pie exposure in it. Before I realized it was you who made it.

Great stuff!

Any way: Looks like the team standings are online again. Some kind of change has obviously been made again since positions has been swapped.

Edit: Now they're gone again.
Edit: Now they're back again with some additions.

Quote from AndroidXP :Or you simply rename the original LFS.exe before applying the patch, which just works as well.

Yeah but it does have some minor drawbacks. Settings such as digital speedo, show pedals and things like that might get changed. Or reset. And if you switch between two different enough versions you might end up with a locked copy of LFS.

Use with care.

Ah, then I clearly had the two rules mixed up as well

Quote :You must have a 'significant' overlap when entering the braking zone to have the right to the corner.

I think that rule might be be a result of this good 'ol guide:

Quote from niall09 :i still dont get you fully. How will i show you what is on the python thing?

In your start menu, look for a dos prompt. I can actually see it in your screenshot, it's labelled c:\program files\blen... and it's right next to the main blender button.

Just click it and you'll see a dos prompt, take a screenshot of it or paste the text here.

The page has yet to be translated into english, but it still might be able to help you. I am linking the page because it does not only carry the full name and abbrevations, but also screenshots and a map of the track.

Quote from Scawen :In W28 it would crash if you clicked on the track selection car selection pictures - fixed in W29.

Hm, yes. I just spotted ussbeethoven's post. I guess I wasn't following the progress as closely as I thought I was. Sorry about the duplicate report.

wAlthough I have not been active posting in this thread I have been lurking around, keeping up with the progress.

Quote from Scawen :Considering: Multiple line text boxes

That would be very handy for reasons stated earlier. Originally I was intending to use multiple buttons (just like hx suggests below) but this would be more convenient. Thanks.

Edit: Just had a W28 crash. I was choosing tracks in the single player game mode when LFS suddenly froze and crashed. Im not sure if it froze before or after I selected Aston in the right-hand list of tracks. See attachment for crash address.

Why did you pit? Did you need more fuel by any chance? Did the AI start with the same amount of fuel as you? Then they probably just ran out of fuel.

The AI does not pit yet, they just keep going until they run out.

OLFSL is open for both serious racers and racers who enter just for fun. HOWEVER, OLFSL IS a league. Signing up for any league season is a commitment. If you want to have a chance of winning the individual competetion you will have to enter every race. (Actually, your two worst results (including missed events) are excluded from the overall individual standings.)

You, as an individual may choose how serious you are about OLFSL.

And the same thing goes for teams. If you want your team to have a chance of winning the team championship, your team have to enter every race. If not all team members enter, then maybe your team simply isn't comitted enough.

Simply put: IMO, a point system should not favor individuals nor teams who doesn't take part.

Quote from anttt69 :Sorry for that Fel, I saw you gaining on me fast & was looking for a safe place to let you pass. Unfortunately the back end got away from me & I could not stop the slide . I had the opposite lock on & the brakes at one point.

Anyway all's well that ends well, you were miles in the lead & still won the race by a country mile. (ur way to quick for us pool 3 racers)

Never mind trying to upgrade step by step.

Download and extract Live for Speed S2 ALPHA - FULL VERSION from scratch.

Here's a decent mirror: http://www.lfs.net/file_s2.php?id=53

From then on patches will be installed automatically as soon as they are released.

Shouldn't you be having this discusssion with the league organizers then? If they're confident enough to organize an event using a test patch I guess the patch has proven to be rather stable / bug free.
