Quote from Cornys :Saturday events are showing as Friday events on the calendar. Everything else appears to be correct.

Can you make a screenie of the calendar as you check the times it shows for you?
And when you hover over the timestamp of one of your events, does the tooltip display the correct UTC time?

And I see i have forgotten to add a 'remove signup' function. Will do that soon.
A new Leagues section
Victor
Developer
Hello racers,

A new Leagues section has been added to the website.
First let me say that it's still a work in progress. It's pretty dry looking at the moment, but there is a lot of functionality.

If you run a league, you can add it to our database so that people can find it in the leagues overview.
You can also add seasons and rounds with events to your league. These will then show up in the racing calendar.

If your league requires people to signup, you can let this website handle that for your seasons or rounds, though if you prefer to do signups on your own website, that's possible as well of course.

Signups made on this website will show up in a personalised overview, so you can always easily find any events you are expected to take part in. If a league host requires a password, you will be able to find it here as well (provided the admin has entered it of course).

Some things that are not yet implemented are better integration with this forum and automatic sub forum eligibility and creation.
Perhaps we can take it as far as binding race results from LFS World to league events. But I'll have to see how people will be using the Leagues section first.

I hope this will make it a bit easier for people to find leagues and I hope it will help league admins get the information out, in turn allowing people to find their league.

If you have any suggestions, regarding features or layout - well anything really - feel free to write them here. Bug reports welcome as well of course, though depending on severity you may want to use the Website Bugs forum for that instead.

Enjoy!

Yes. But that made me wonder why I couldn't include the old version in the TIF zip as well. So I've done that now.

That looks like (some of) the data files for the S1 tracks are invalid / corrupted / not unlocked properly.
One thing you could try is run LFS as administrator, lock LFS and unlock LFS again. See if that makes a difference. If it does then LFS is installed with admin privileges, which is wrong. In that case you should install LFS again, to a normal folder, outside of Program Files and run with your normal user account.
Hope that helps (coz i'm not sure). Scawen may otherwise be able to tell you more tomorrow.

Works for me and it's really there. Or do you mean something else by broken?

Quote from DANIEL-CRO :I locked LFS in my backup folder and tried to unlock (G19) and same thing happens to me. Guess Scawen forgot to enable unlocking for G19 on master server.

G19 unlocking works now as well.

seems so indeed! I think Scawen is fixing it.

Quote from VVAK :I have an "old" version of LFS(G3). I copied this and I downloaded the new Westhill setup. I ran this setup in the LFS Copy map.

As I read ur answer i should delelete the "old" LFS?

Oh right, you have some intermediary test version which isn't recognised by the master server (anymore). If you install https://www.lfs.net/file_lfs.php?name=LFS_PATCH_6G_TO_6G18_setup.exe you can unlock it.
Victor
Developer
If you mean you try to unlock LFS when you get that message, then perhaps you have an odd, old or damaged version of LFS installed.
You could try a fresh install of LFS.

Updated. I might adjust some content later, but at least it all works.
However there is no Car Park configuration overlay atm.

Fixed.

The file links in the first post have been updated to include the new version.

No idea I'm afraid. It could even be there's not even a power saving feature on your card. I couldn't find any such option on my nvidia control panel either.
But there is a PCI power saving option in your regular Windows' power profile that you could check. You should be able to find it in the advanced power options edit window.
Though again, no idea if that'll fix anything. Your issue could be something completely unrelated.

Oh, that brings me to the silly usual question - have you checked that you have the latest drivers? Rather than perhaps any drivers supplied with the new card itself.
Victor
Developer
Some people have reported that their GFX card would go into power saving mode for some reason, which would result in apparently bad performance.
Putting their car on max performance fixes the issue. Though it would be interesting for us to figure out why these cards think they can save power in the first place, when in fact it's being used. We haven't figured that out yet.
So have a look at your card's control panel and see if there is a power saving mode that you can switch off.

Quote from Gutholz :The link/text at bottom of installer is cut off, the sentence suddendly stops:
(german)
/edit
actually was not the patch but the normal LFS_S2_6G_setup.exe

I've given that line more room (for future installers).

Quote from felplacerad :Found a little quirk with the installer(s) as well:

Patch installer: If you run out of disk space on the drive where %TEMP% (ie: C:\Users\Thomas\AppData\Local\Temp) is pointing the installer will fail with a not very specific error message (screenshot 1).

Full installer: Even "worse", it just freezes without any (obvious) message what so ever (screenshot 2).

Edit: After reviewing the 2nd screenshot I now notice that the text changed to "Installation aborted - Setup was not completed successfully", but that's (probably, and in my case obviously) easily missed.

Diskspace check added (for future installers).

We do not provide Linux dedicated hosting software. We only provide it for Windows.
You can however try to run it with Wine (Windows Emulator) on Linux. But I'm not sure if that works well on 64bit Linux. It works very well on 32bit Linux though.

Quote from dawesdust_12 :Currently, I've resorted to creating a 2nd HTTP server (built in PHP, not a webserver) that's handling WebSocket handshaking + connection management. It's a bloody nightmare to integrate at the core of an application.

I've built websockets into the insim relay - it's the ideal program to do this for and actually quite easy. I only had to detect websocket requests on the usual port and from there on wrap existing packets in websocket frames and vice versa. And done! Smile
But yea, don't you always need some separate service to provide websocket functionality? Nginx or Apache, etc would only serve as proxy, no? I never even understood how that would work, technically ... in my eyes it's easier to just create my own connection handler :P

hmm going a bit off topic aren't we Taped Shut
