Nice, I've wanted this for a while. Thanks.
oh yeh BMW X5
You've been working your arse off Scawen.
Everything seems fine by now, but I've suffered a couple of "billy took the wrong rute" just after going a bit outside the track through those red+white wheels

This didn't bother me before the X patch because the car would always reset but now it drives me to spectator mode becase of the canreset=no

I know that a big crash should end my race, but when you're just going a bit offlimit it shouldn't, mostly because when you miss the brake point there's a fair amount of space you can see in your monitor to turn around and get back to the track but suddenly you go to spectator for no reason (from the racer pov, we all know it's because the track has a limit in game because of checkpoints and stuff)

It isn't a X5 related bug but it's a X patch related issue that I think it should be checked before releasing the autoupdater version

one question.

when it allows the independent change of tires to the STOP in boxes?

sorry my bad english.

In spain/en español:
cuando permitirá el cambio independiente de neumaticos al parar en boxes ?

I suppose Kian wants to say when it allows the independent change of tires by axis. ( front / rear ).

It will be a good update if you could choose for example:

Change front wheels if > x%
Change rear wheels if > x%

Thanks for the new X Updates !!!

no no.

Example:

Change tire: no||-----||Change tire: yes
|
| <---- car
|
change tire:Yes||-----||change tire: no

Thanks - It's a reasonable suggestion but should be in the improvement suggestion section - though I think you will find it's already been suggested.

It's really not related to the test patch and this thread is only to report issues with the test patch or serious bugs, not feature requests.

I don't know if or when this feature will be done, but I do understand why you would like it.

KiAn good for us you drew it and uploaded an image because I couldn't understand anything you wrote in english

Please next time ask someone to translate it before posting

=============================================

KiAn menos mal que lo dibujaste y subiste una imagen por que no pude entender nada de lo que escribiste en inglés

Por favor la próxima vez pide a alguien que te lo traduzca antes de postear

Patch X5.

In hotlap replays, when pressing CTRL-SHIFT, the username is all blank.

And that has always been the case, I think.
