I'd like to see him explain the same small errors in the track thats in the NR2003 version ;) and the blatent ripping of all the nr2003 scenery too. To me it is the same, but prettied up even more and a few little edits.

it's scratch built, but the same guy made it for nr2003 too, so updated it a bit for rF. still the engine's capable of much better things, even tho Trois does work well.

Been playing rFactor for about 5 days now, and I have to say that I'm very impressed by it. Tired the F3 and Formula Nippon cars and they're pretty good too. Few little niggles though.

- At night, even under lights, there's still black smoke. Doesn't seem to be correct..I would have thought that it would still be white.

- The 'Career' Mode: Argh! Why isn't there an option just to switch it off (and yes, I know about the cheat code). If you are going to have a career-mode, I think it should have a little more structure to it than the rF one does.

- Is there a way to limit the number of AI opponents in a race to that it doesn't exceed the number of cars in the carset? It was a bit weird when I jumped into a race and there were 3 of the same driver in the field

- Turning on Reconnasense laps and formation laps in the .plr file results in all the AI cars remaining in the pits and the start sequence being completely screwed up.

- This one could just be how I've got my game/monitor setup, but night seems a lot darker than what it should be. Not sure about the rest of you, but I can't make about anything more than whats lit-up by the headlights and maybe a few feet infront of that.

- Not sure if this is a game problem or my PC, but there doesn't appear to be any shadows/lighting effects (aisde from day/night ones) on the cars. IE, if you pass under the shadow of a tree, the effects of the shadow aren't drawn on the car.


Anyway, those are my thoughts. Seems like a solid base for both ISI and the modders to build on and I know that it's going to keep me occupied for a while at least.

I did it in game (not editing the .plr files), and it seems to work fine, at least on the default tracks.

Sounds like a stupid question, but are you driving in a darkened room? Try blocking out light and things. For the WOSEC Spa night endurance race thingy, Glyn needed some 'WOSEC Compatable Curtains' that he never shuts up about ;)

Dark seems spot on for me... sure there's small niggles, but remember this is only simulating real life.

That could well be it. No, I'm not driving in a darkened room. Unfortunately, the local council, in their infintate wisdom, decided that the pedestrian crossing out the front of my flat needed two big, bright, ORANGE! flood lights accross it so that the 0 people that use it when it's dark don't get hit by cars while they're not crossing it. As a result, at night, my room doesn't get dark, it gets a horrid shade of orange.

That, and it was the middle of the day when I was testing it out.

Huh..where do you edit it in-game? The only options I've seen for it are in the .plr file.

As I remember:

Game settings > Rules > Race Start = Formation/standing

Probably amounts to the same values though... but as I said, I've not had any issues myself.

My bedroom suffers from the same thing. Keep breaking the light until they stop replacing it

Ahh, I think you're misunderstanding me. With those settings, you still start the race session on the grid, then you do the formation lap and start. Which does work. However, what I'm having problems with is starting the race session in pitlane, then going to the grid, doing the formation lap and starting the race.

O.k. people, I thought I'd post here rather than start a new thread, so forgive me if this is in the wrong spot...

My buddy and I grabbed the beta(?) F1 cars and from the CDTP mob, and all is cool. BUT the cars are a bit wobbly for our meagre skills on the straights(of all places!!)which makes it almost impossible to set consistant lap times because you can never hit the same turn in point 2 laps in a row! So..
Does anyone know which files/programs we need to edit this until the guys release the full mod..OR can you give a guy a hint as to which area of set-up needs looking at??

Cheers.

Yeah, we'll wait for thier release.
We haven't (LOL can't!) convert anything. We got the link for the cars from the RSC forum here: [racingmag.gamesurf.tiscali.de...=projects&id=2]

Cheers.

Is it possible to disable physics?

Disabling physics would result in your car simply drifting off into space...

Yeh, I was going to reply but I thought I could trust Dave or someone else to give the reply that was suited, but yes WTF would be quite a good response. One of the best questions I've ever seen on here.
