    NOTE:  The season starts next Thursday 26th May (not this week!)



    Who's in this season?

    @batistutauk @Count Buffalos @daifuco @Erik @EuroVapeSim2 @extremepabs @Meers @milko @Mr Majestyk @mrben09 @SANtoOos @SharkyOB @SneakyNinja @SweatyTravolta @texlex45 @Valver @willmill @winky @DjScream3 @Yannik @Kristian Svenning @Thor @scoobysi @Varnsen @Olivia Neutron Bomb @Mars @Speech @Dimahoo @jonathanhoey @Couch Corpse



    Apologies for the tagging if you have no interesting in joining.  I've gone back to previous seasons for the rollcall, so feel free to ignore.  No need to explain why you can't or don't want to join, but it would be good to have as many people as possible obviously!


    If anyone wants to return and aren't a member of the simracing.gp platform, it's easy to register.  Sign up to the platform, then click to open the rllmuk Community page for an 'Invite' link.  You won't be automatically approved, so do let me know if you register with the site and I'll approve membership.  You can then sign up to the races (any or all!).  There's no commitment to join all the races for the season.



  2. @Valver How is the new rig treating you?


    I've got the new pedal deck installed now, and it's so much better.   The better mounting options means I've been able to move the pedals over to the left, so I have the brake and throttle dead in the middle now.  Hopefully this will help with the knee pain.

    Re. the kids setting - I see what you mean now! I have the for kids option enabled, but I don't think I've seen the restrictions option yet. Having another look. I was surprised that it recorded the audio from my teammates as well! Very cool, that way you can really follow what's going on.


    It's the 'made for kids' option that you specifically need to disable; which then gives you the other option.

    Thanks for the tips! I will give the audio settings a more thorough look. I thought I had it set to kids mode, but apparently not. Weird.


    Your 1070 is performing like a beast! Pretty much everything on epic with a few high settings, but not lower than that. And all cars visible as well, plus a live stream in the background. I even have 'real-time' reflections in the bonnet of the cars in front of me! Very flashy graphics to what I was used to. I also had a live pitwall timings sheet running on my 2nd screen, a whatsapp chat, discord and of course the stream. The thing is a monster!


    At one point (when I was watching) you turned down the in-game audio a little, and it was perfect at that point.  Well, the audio of the game vs other guys was spot on; but you were just really quiet (so it was strange hearing them talk to you, but not your replies) :D


    You had it set to 'Yes, it's made for kids' which means it disables the live chat and features the stream specifically in the kids version of the website/app; which I don't think was your intention.  You want to choose the options for 'No, it's not made for kids' but then choose 'No' for the age restriction.  This means it's a general 'suitable for all' stream with live chat enabled.



  5. Settings below!

    • These match the Fanatec recommended settings for the CSL DD & ACC, with the exception of 'Natural Damper' which is off.  The game has introduced it's own slider for this since Fanatec wrote their settings guide, and the in-game implementation is better




    • As noted above, in-game Damper is used and set at 50%
    • I had my gain higher than this, but lowered it after my arm operation so am just starting to adjust it upwards now
    • I'm not keen on the road effects, so have turned off

    i did a little monza last week, only trying cars I’ve not really tried driving before, and so far I’m not going well At All. 1.50.3 as a best so far I think. Will hop on the server tomorrow if I can and demonstrate with a crappy time! 
    if your 1.47.9 was pre 1.8 that might be close to on par btw. 1.5-2s I think was the typical increase all else being equal. I’ve usually found it less than that due to general improvement. 


    Yeah, it would have been well before 1.8.


    I can't decide on a car.   I was 99% settled on going back to the Ferrari, but it feels like if I look at a curb wrong I end up in the wall.  I love it, but it frustrates me.


    Gonna put some more time into the Porsche, and I might try the BMW.  Pretty much ruled out all the other cars having tried them all for a few laps.  Going back to the Macca is an option too.  I feel really consistent in it, and I've gotta say it just feels the most fun car to drive.

  7. @Meers, stream quality is really good, but can only hear the other guys and not you.  Kinda surreal that I'm seeing my old 1070 in action over the power of interwebnet!


    For the next stream if you disable the option to say the stream is for kids the live chat will be enabled.  So we can comment on the live chat and give you support! (not that you'd likely see comments until you're out of the car).


    EDIT: Game audio could be a little lower overall compared to voice.  Also, change MFD to the timing page.  Stuck on pit strategy page at the mo.

  8. Awesome scenes!! 😀


    It's great to have that excitement of new gear.  I'm fully in the land of diminishing returns now.  My last two upgrades; the pedals (HE Sprints) and new headset (Reverb G2) have been somewhat if a side-grade in truth.  Better, but not hundreds of pounds better.  So I don't think I'll get to have that excitement again 😂

    and shall we go on a rllmuk recruitment drive? I miss @Count Buffalos! Among several others!


    regarding simracing.gp randoms I'm not sure - more numbers would be good but if they don't "get it" for our usually-gentlemanly style it would be annoying. One thing to get punted in a cup car sprint race, more annoying if it's wrecking an hour or more's worth of effort.


    I'd tend to agree.  I've turned off automatic approval for simracing.gp applications just now; and on the 'About' page I've noted that applications get approved only after joining the forum and Discord.


    We could password protect the events themselves too, as there are a lot of people registered to the SGP commmunity that we don't know, so they could still join the races.  But that might be overkill.

    :lol:  oh you!


    ...although there is part of me that thinks a 1.5hr race with one stop would be good.  And in order for that race to take up the same amount of time on an evening, we could expand the idea of using the rllmuk practice server and have the start positions based  off the results from the previous week.  ie ditch race night qualifying like we do for the Blue Ribband event...


    There is a part of me that likes the idea too, but all things considering I wouldn't want to do 1.5 hour races :(  My knee aches after the hour races we have, and is wrecked after the blue ribands.  I actually dread those season enders.


    I know we wouldn't be doing the qualifying session, but it's more to do with the intensity of the race without being able to stretch my legs that's the problem.
