Hi Shaun,

Any standard sound card will do. Use the green (I think) socket for stereo output, no need to use the black if present (Surround).

In a previous setup I used to have PC sound going through my HiFi, it sounded absolutley great!

If there's no existing soundcard, you can even get a USB soundcard without the need for installation.

From my post on my team forum.
Quote :...qualifying 13th wasn’t so bad.

I got away well from the line, as did Kid222 ahead of me, and we caught up lococost to go 3 wide into T1. I was on the outside and taking care, but niall09 came in too hot from behind and spun lococost. I was then following a gang of FZ50s (is that the collective name?) and there was no point blocking them on the straight.

Lap 2 and approaching the half way chicane I came upon [GR]Evolution going slower into the corner than I expected, I am sorry to say I hit him. Then niall09 came between us and hit [GR]Evolution as well which spun him round. Feeling responsible for initiating this I waited up until [GR]Evolution had passed me again which unfortunately meant dropping 10 places as he recovered. Niall09 carried on.

Now I was 3rd from last and had to battle through the field again. Some made grassy detours and I passed others, it was proving fun. By lap 6 I had reached 3 squabbling FZ50s and passed them, followed by swapping positions with Bean0 for several laps which probably cost us both time. I would pass on the corners, he would pass on the straights, both compromised. Sorry to him for bumping him up the bum approaching the chicane again on lap 7. I should have accounted for the longer braking distance of the FZ50 there. Tobsen00 had caught us as well.

A couple more drivers decided to build sand castles and I was up to 10th. By lap 11 I think some FZ50s were struggling with their tyres. Mine however were ideal, staying at optimum 70ºC. Throughout the week I had actually tweaked something better from my starting setup for once!
By lap 15 I was up to 9th and feeling pretty pleased with myself to have managed that against so many FZ50s. [GR]Evolution had dropped down due to other incidents but I noticed he was now leading the pack behind and catching. I put in some consistent laps with the aim of holding on, this was 'serious racing' time.

On the last lap I had the most awful thing happen to me in all my simracing... I ran out of fuel!
It was dreadful watching each car pass me. After finishing [GR]Evolution gave me a push for a consolatory 20th place, cheers.

I've done a few laps using the only RAC race setup from Setup Field. Managing stable low 2:01.xx and trying to tweak the setup, which usually turns out bad (I make them worse)

Quote from anttt69 :Gav almost took us both out one lap when rejoining the racing line, luckily I took evasive action.

Oh, I'm sorry you thought that
Approaching T1? I decided you hadn't enough overlap and must admit squeezing you a little

Yep, I'm guilty of that. I have a rubber mat under my wheel to stop me pulling it off the desk!

I had practiced for this event so was more confident, and happy with qualifying 2nd.

However the start of the first race was terrible for me, my PC was jerky until the field spread out and I was way too nervous. A mistake let eraser past during the shocking early laps. I then settled down and caught eraser up again, was some good racing but followed him home into 3rd.

Second race and it was my turn to apply some pressure to eraser for the early laps, but he held it together. I then made an unforced error in touching the grass which relegated me to 6th right behind the three FZ50's of lococost, DaveWS and wimpie. These were fighting amongst themselves and I couldn't find a way past. I was thinking I would just have to wait for one of them to make a mistake... like what I do! Near the end wimpie and DaveWS collided during a fish tailing exercise so I got a lucky 4th place finish. Was enjoyable racing though

People have moved it laterally with the addition of an extra plate. Check here http://forum.rscnet.org/showthread.php?t=277657

I've also read about the simpler solution of spacers behind the brake pedal.

Looks like we'll be using X10 version this Thursday, since X30 was not converted to full blown patch Y over the weekend and if it was released over the next few days it wouldn't give us enough time to practice with the new physics/feel of the cars.

I'm sure we'll be using patch Y for the race after: AS3R

I had a similar problem with the latest driver just after getting my G25. I reverted back to the previous 5.0 driver, but that happened without a hitch. Sorry don't know what to advise apart from things worked OK when I reverted back.

Try installing the lastest version and then uninstalling again, in case something was missed?

Controller issue, more detail:

Upon installing and starting I found no steering. Looking at the options>controllers screen I can see 3 devices detected which is correct and all the axis were listed.

Moving any axis on my wheel did nothing to the axis previews on the right, same for my joystick.

However, if I woke my wireless gamepad up (press a button) and moved one of it's axis, this was detected and shown in the axis previews. From that point all the other axis on the other controllers worked without having to reassign the axis to functions.

The wheel would work for the whole of a race. Upon starting another race, or visiting pits etc. the wheel would stop working again since the gamepad had gone into hibernation. Wake it up, move an axis and wheel axis resumed.

The fact I've got a gamepad and some have a similar problem with their posh keyboards sounds like the same fault.

I have the same problem with the G25.

I have
Logitech Cordless RumblePad2
Logitech Wingman Strike Force 3D
Logitech G25

I found that if I woke the rumblepad up (it hibernates when not used) and used one of it's axis, it enabled all other axis to work including G25.
This is a little awkward since this sequence is necessary every time I leave the pits, change car etc.

Sounds to me like we have a common problem that another devise is set as default controller

The rule says don't join again after pitting, there is no mention of Shift+S.
Driving into a pit box is still a pit stop
So I think it's down to you assuming the rule means telepitting.

Copy of my report from team forum
Quote :...South City Long Reversed which should have been an advantage for my RAC. I didn't finish!
I qualified 5th in some tight times. From the start the first 3 were pulling away and I was all over the back of eraser_svk for the next 8 laps. I would apply occasional pressure but it's hard to pass.
Unfortunately I clipped a barrier which made me hit the opposite one harder then spin 3 times. I was lucky not to receive any damage but had lost quite a few places.

I resumed to follow a gaggle of FZ50s for a lap or 2. I slid a little bit and nudged a barrier, but the over zelous impact detection decided to launch me into orbit. I landed on my wheels but with practically a dead car. Race over

I crawled round to the pits and started from last. With renewed purpose from my anger I posted pb after pb, including the fastest lap of the race at that time (later pipped by the winner). I threw caution to wind since I had nothing to lose - hit a barrier, landed on my roof and died.

More concentration needed next time.

Quote from sdether :Talked to Force Dynamics about this (got another inquiry from the UK) and it turns out, it's just a matter of getting a transformer after all for the UK.

Talk to me if anyone wants a step-down transformer for using US equipment in the UK

Quote from SamH :110V is pretty standard in the UK for industrial equipment. I have a yellow box transformer lying around here somewhere. Sadly I don't have the money for the seat.. though if I had, you'd be at risk of having your arm ripped out of its socket

Don't confuse the US straight 110V with the UK Site Safety Supply 110V (yellow boxes) since the second type has the centre tap connected to earth (55V-0V-55V). Using equipment designed for one system on the other system may result in damage to the transformer and/or equipment.

The way I understand it; as long as the track is clear then you can cross the yellow line with caution.
If an incident occurs from crossing the line, then it is soley the fault of the driver leaving the pits.

Scripts are the way to go
I didn't want to be tied to one method for a car, so I programmed a button to swap mode (even during a race)
Here's my script to disect ( I have 3 controllers, hence high numbered buttons)

Quote from the_angry_angel :The biggest problem I had in France (Paris to be exact), a few weeks ago (the first time I've ever driven on the wrong side as well), was that there are different rules on the road, in comparison with the UK at least. The law of the road appears to be you have to avoid the crash, especially if you have right of way - if not then it's your fault.

The first thing the old UK Highway Code used to say was do your utmost to avoid a crash, meaning regardless of the other rules. I don't know if it's still there since the new one has been introduced recently. I try and make a point of reading it every few years, it's surprising the number of little known rules you forget.
