Quote from MadCatX :The old forum didn't have a special mobile style and as far as I was ever concerned it displayed quite well on all my mobile gadgets.

This site contains more than just the forum It needs to work for every page.

As for the overflow - removing that does funny things when the car in the header moves off the screen. I might be able to fix that by looking closely at the site's structure again and rearrange things a bit so that the overflow is only for the header rather than the whole body.

It's a bit unfortunate situation for mobile atm, but nevertheless i'm going to leave it as it is for now and fix the whole mobile thing later on with dedicated css.
I know everyone's saying to make it responsive, but imo that is really very hard to do - to make an entire site responsive (or adaptive, whatever). Some content is just not suited to wrap nicely into a tiny window. It needs a whole new approach. So that should be fixed at a later time, with mobile css.

Fixed pretty much all of those.

Quote from Eclipsed :I guess this is the right place to post this - I'm missing one option in user profile/statistics. There was "find all threads started by user",which for me was very helpful,as I do a lot of copy/pasting when creating new thread about events...

Hm yes, I'll add that one, but with a bit lower priority. Atm I'm doing important and quick fixes and this request takes a bit more time.

20 characters should be fine.

Can you try once more? I've made some improvements.
erm, wait, you seem to have locked yourself out - you can try the login reset procedure if that is the case.

Quote from Bean0 :Apparently theres a voodoo art to searching until some sort of options page is created...

https://www.lfs.net/forum/-1/search/user:scawen

Yes, gotta make something handy for that still.

In the meantime, here's some more voodoo :

Search options :

search for posts by username (you can use multiple to search multiple usernames)
user:<USERNAME>

search in post (thread) titles
title:<KEYWORD>

Keywords without one of these qualifiers will be searched in regular post texts.

Here are some (theoretical) examples :

Search in posts from a user :
user:victor wheel

Remember to put usernames with spaces in quotes :
user:"don Merino" wheel

Forgetting how to quote may still work fine :
"user:don Merino" wheel

Search username and title and post text :
user:victor title:wheel "calibration problem" solved

Search multiple users :
user:victor wheel user:drben

You can even be sloppy. These still work :
user:victor wheeluser:drben
user:victor wheeluser:"drben"bare

Quote from Brilwing :I wanted to update my email address and for this is I have opened the 'Personal Details' in the profile. I have change the address and pressed 'Update account'. I received a mail to verify the address, but when I clicked the 'Click here to update your LFS account' link I was back in the 'Personal Details' page with the old address.

Please give it a go once more.

A New Site
Victor

Hello all,

We have been working on a new site for a while and now finally here it is.
It has a more open feel - with more room to work with and a new look.

As you can tell, the forum has been integrated into the www.lfs.net website. We hope to be able to better integrate the community with Live for Speed.
To aid with that, a new Leagues section is in the works as well. So things like the Racing Calendar will soon be back.

One new section you may notice is the Hosting section.
We now offer hosting for those in need. There are traditional subscription hosts and on-demand hosts. The latter is for when you just need a host for a little while (and one of the freely available ones isn't good enough ). Could be a league race for example.
Hosts are setup instantly and you can configure everything through our web interface. We keep logs and replays as well. I'd recommend reading more about LFS Hosting on the Hosting page

There will no doubt still be bugs to squash. When you run into something that does not work, just report it in the website bugs section and I will have a look.

The site will continue to be worked on as well. The new Leagues section has high priority, but many features in other categories are still planned.

I hope you will enjoy the new website with its new features. Have a look around - you may find some new stuff. Any suggestions and feedback are always welcome - I'm sure you'll not disappoint me there

Finally a big thanks to Flame CZE who has helped a lot with the graphics of the website!
Further thanks go out to Daniel-cro and Whiskey. Many thanks for your relentless testing, making the site a robust one.

Hello LaimisD1, you should be good to go again.

Quote from (SER)Kalauz :Hi,

I'm having this issue for a while now. Whenever I upload hotlaps ( different replays, not just one ) I always get this message for the replay "hotlap was not valid and will soon be removed".

I attached the latest one in case it helps.

Thanks.

I've had a look and there was a bug in the hotlap validator. Your hotlap has now been processed.

Quote from CodeLyoko1 :Scawen, why remove my comment, it was a normal comment saying that this is a racing sim not a cruise sim. Is it not true, that you deleted it or is it something else that makes you delete it?

It has been deleted because comments like that one are detriment to LFS. Yes, LFS is primarily a racing simulator, but the beauty is that you can also use it for other purposes. The physics have been made so that they work all-round. Why would we want people not use LFS in other ways, especially if those people are not in anyone's way?
Your comment excludes those people, makes them not feel welcome -> brings negativity -> annoys people -> makes people not want to come back. So while you may think you are helping, you are actually doing the opposite.

ah, sorry about that. It's working again now.

not gonna claim I understand all this, but interesting read : http://www.agner.org/optimize/microarchitecture.pdf

I doubt branch prediction works on multiple physical cores though, where branches would spread onto different cores. I'll bet it's more like a feature each core has to optimise code execution.

I don't think it's our server / connection.
If I ping the monitoring servers of that site from my end, there's no loss at all.
http://tools.pingdom.com/ping/ (used by isp's to keep an eye on networks) also shows no loss.
Anyway, it's a nice tool - it still gives apparently correct latency values, which is nice to know.

Quote from Chriship :Hello cmanns

You might want to use this website

http://cloudmonitor.ca.com/en/ping.php

Makes a ping to the desired IP from 90 different locations.

Quite helpfull

~F

nice! A bit odd that it displays 60-80% packet loss for just about all locations though. Pretty sure that's not actually the case.
When using IPv6 it reports no lost packets though (you can try with mail.lfs.net).

Hm yes that's a big difference. But on the MIN list, the difference between your XP and Win7 results is minimal.
Don't have an explanation - just noticed it

I have updated the LFS Benchmark site with the new version 0.6F and have added some hardware for those of us with new systems.

The replay and min/max cfg.txt files are still the same as with previous version.
It may be interesting to see if there's a performance difference between 0.6F with DirectX 9 vs the older versions of LFS with DirectX 8.
