Didn't know that using lower racks is a no no is simracing world
I am also cheating IRL, bought z3 rack for my e30 with 2,7 turns lock to lock, costs pretty penny, but it's worth it was 3,2(e36 rack) before, originally 4 turns form lock to lock.

So 972°?
I've experienced this point of no return buritto slide.. You can't even attempt to catch it, it's like you disconnected the steering wheel. Happens on higher speeds only.. Have no idea if it's realistic or not.
YAY !!!! Guess who 's home early...Time to get this Cobra and Porsche shit going on

I'm also one of the 540° rotation users, Niels Heusinkveld did a very good video explaining why 900° rotation with the G25/27 FFB motors is not the preferred thing to do. I can't find it right now, just an earlier one without him commenting over the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XgQm_fITok If somebody still knows where the other one is post it!

But in a nutshell the FFB motor is just not fast enough to cope with what is expected from him at 900° or 720° he mentions (in the video I can't find anymore) that the first degree of rotation that does what it's supposed to do is 540, thats why I went there back in the days.

Ohh interesting Troy, as I felt that when I upgraded from Momo to G27 it wasn't as responsive as the momo, and this would explain why.


So in your profile you have 540 set, and in game?

540 profiler and 540 in game, I'm not sure if that is the best way to go about it though, some cars feel rather snappy with it (599XX Evo for example) but 90% of them feel ok for me. Maybe there is somebody with more knowledge on how AC is handling wheel rotation able to comment on this.
Personally I just use between 560-700 depending what car I drive. I have configured the wheel as 900 (903 to be exact, I did not bother trying to chance the last tenth of pixel to get it to 900) in the game and I just use the fanatec tuning menu to change the rotation while driving so it feels fast enough. My wheel is Fanatec 911 turbo s which is basically the same as fanatec csr/gt2/gt3 and probably the only major difference to a G25/7 is the diameter (it is also a belt drive).

If someone has the "ffb rotation quickness" image from iracing forum that shows the different wheels then please post them here. From that pic it should be possible to tell how fast different wheels.

As for ac and G25/7 you could set it to 900 in the game and then do this with your g25/7s: http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/ ... ck-settings-guide.286646/ to change the sensitivety
Quote from R3DMAN :how come its so dark?

looks like wrong rendering settings. Had this too when I started with vegas pro
Lol, there is no ffb is real life. It's just real physics....
Well, you get feedback in a real car, in the form of forces. So I guess that's FFB.

Mistake on my end, was fiddling around with that sweetfx thing I've posted earlier and forgot to change the rgb gamma to the correct value, just imagine it was getting dark!
From their FB page:

Quote :Dear AC followers,
we are glad to introduce you to the 0.21 release of Assetto Corsa on Steam Early Access. This version introduces some heavy upgrades and new features that represent a step ahead going to the 1.0 release.
New content: Classic Team Lotus Type 98T
Finally this awesome car is available in the Assetto Corsa's garage: the legendary single seater with which Ayrton Senna has wrote some of the most beatiful pages in the motorsport history is waiting for you: Equipped with a small 1.5litres engine that represents the peak of the legendary turbo era, producing over 800bhp at race boost of around 3.5bar and more than 1200bhp at qualifying trim and over 5bar turbo boost! The downforce generated by the big wings and massive diffuser is even more than what modern F1 cars are capable of. Nevertheless, the extreme pitch sensitivity, stalling issues of the diffuser and unbelievably exponential power delivery of the twin turbo's, will challenge your skills not only to try and go fast with this car, but to actually keep it on track! Just a single lap will make you understand why there was just one man on the planet, capable of driving this monster close to its limits and on to pole position!
New Multiplayer
We have worked very hard to improve the multiplayer routines: we have recognized that some of the limits of the previous netcode didn't allow gamers to get the maximum satisfaction, in particular when some gamers was performing high ping values. We are glad to announce that the netcode of the new version doesn't represent an improvement of the previous one, but it has been rewrote from scratch. The results of our private betatesting gave us an excellent feedback, and we are confident you will get a very improved multiplayer experience. Please notice that this new version, Assetto Corsa requires increased server bandwidth. Professional dedicated servers shouldn't have any problems at all, but users that wish to host session on their local home connection, should start with a very low client number and slowly raise the number until they find the limits of their connection.
The following bandwidth requirements are a conservative guideline, your results may vary:
Clients = Kilobytes /sec upstream
5 = 23KB/s
8 = 66KB/s
10 = 106KB/s
15 = 247KB/s
20 = 448KB/s
25 = 708KB/s
30 = 1026KB/s
New Multiplayer features
New multiplayer mode without booking request. The number of servers and users wishing to easily join pickup servers has caught us by surprise. We never immagined such a big success of casual multiplayer sessions with Assetto Corsa. As such, it was evident that the actual booking system, specifically thought for leagues and organized racing, was not doing a good job. We’re introducing a new “pickup” multiplayer mode without booking sessions.
The new “pickup” system, permits a server to be configured without booking sessions. An entry list must be configured properly, with only the cars that will be present in the server.
Clients can filter from the UI and search just for non booking servers. Then simply select a car and join the server at whatever session (practice, qualifying or race), at any time as many times as they wish.
At the current state the “pickup” system does not permit a specific skin selection from the client and we’re pretty sure that needs more testing in order to iron out possible bugs. Please help us by pointing out bugs at our official support forums. We are looking to have multiple hotfixes during the following week, in order to deliver a stable version for August vacations.
Artificial Intelligence
Working on the Lotus Type 98T, we have had also the chance to analyze some issues related to the stability of some of the most performing cars that feature a active aero system: the Lotus Type 98T produces very high drag and downforce values, that change costantly and dynamically with pitch, speed and throttle position. All of that, together with the incredible power and speed that this car is capable of, resulted in multiple critical situations for our AI. The new AI improvements, not only manages to mantain the Lotus 98T on track, but also improve the AI behaviour of the other cars. More improvements are on the way, following optimizations of the new code.
Graphics engine
As anticipated some weeks ago, this build performs some new graphics libraries: you will notice some improved post-processing effects, including DOF (depth of field), bloom, tone mapping, FXAA and more. There are some additional features included in the graphics option menu that will allow users to choose different scenarios. This version does not include most of the effects that will be included in future and that will represent a huge step ahead: before to introduce other features, we want to be sure about stability and performance of this upgrade.
Next updates
As always, we'll monitor all the forum activities in order to find and resolve eventual issues and bugs that might show up, due to the numerous new features included in this update. We will provide if needed, multiple hotfixes and feature updates in the following days. The next main build is expected to be released on Friday, 29th of August
FMOD sound engine
The implementation of FMOD sound engine is going well: as soon as we will be able to provide a comparison video between the current version and the new build featuring FMOD, we'll show you the benefits of this upgrade: this step represents a huge challenge, because it requires a total conversion of old samples and the creation of new ones. Also, new effects will be included in order to create an immersive sound environment that can guarantee an immersive experience. We believe that the final result is well worth the investment requested.
Spa Francorchamps Circuit
The modeling of Spa-Francorchamps has been almost completed: as you might know, this track will be included in the 1.0 version of Assetto Corsa (and this might suggest you that 1.0 version isn't too far). During this summer we will release some videos and pictures that will give you an idea of what to expect from this awesome and legendary circuit.
Future upgrades, contents and partnerships
Considering the time involved to schedule and manage the production of new contents, we are working in advance to provide you tons of new contents even after 1.0 release, with new car brands licensed and models to be unveiled soon. We recognize that trying to stay focused on the development of the main build and on some new activities, we haven't shared enough work in progress pics and videos for a while: don't worry, we'll surprise you again. Stay tuned on www.facebook.com/Assetto.corsa to discover all the incoming news!
KUNOS Simulazioni is expanding
The Early Access program has been very successful, exceeding our expectations, and it's about to end. Thanks to this results, KUNOS Simulazioni has welcomed some additional programmers and graphics modellers that are already involved in current and future productions, thanks to their experience matured working on AAA games. We are grateful of the amazing response of the community towards Assetto Corsa and we try our best to give you the best racing game we are able to make. Thank you very much for your incredible support: see you on track!

I have to see that new multiplayer. Maybe here is the time when AC breaks the barrier and leagues can finally start to use it, and people take it seriously.
Lotus is crazy, too scared to boost
Sod that, cobra 0.2 update is out !!
Cobra is miles better now
Ultimate combo = Cobra s/c + street tires + dusty road + low track temps + Longford (because 0.95 grip)
*be warned death may occur!
raw pic
Sweet fx + Natural Look + new post processing

Hmm my fps has tanked a bit and I sometimes get like 40fps on the pitstraight despite the fact that I've literally turned everything off to get good fps. Not to mention really bad stuttering at times? Anyone else having any issues? It could be join lag too...

thats awfully over saturated .. looks awful

about ~10 fps hit with pp on max

agree about over saturated, need to fiddle with setting again, new graphics update made some changes, btw my in game saturation is set to 72%
