Though you haven't seen me on track recently, just want to take opportunity to wish all a very happy New Year.

Speaking of Monza, the WRC is having their season-ender there, starting today. They're even using the banking!!11!

For verification of the issues caused by that wonky controller*, I tried a different one (Logitech Dual-Shock) which has much better potentiometers, and immediately did a 21:15. Down side is having to use a single, very small joystick for both gas and brake, which rapidly causes hand cramps (why I went the other way for the race).

*More complete story: it's actually fine for use with a lot of other games. I guess they mask the jaggy input somehow. For C$13, tax in, good value even if not suitable for GPL.

I also tried the hovering section names for the race, and I really liked that. Impressively well done. :bravo: Would a different colour/contrast help the legibility, Clive? Might be worth asking for, as I can see it helping others, too.

Best GPL track ever, hands down. Too bad it sucks for actually racing. Tongue

Just checked, and I have no igor racelist.   Angry

Is [ RaceListServers ] IP = igor.gplrank.info still valid?

Some progress, but not what I'd hoped for. Putting every setup trick into stability over speed, I've managed a sub-24 minute lap, with about a dozen shift-r's and several times that of solid wall clouts.

Tracking down and using DXTweak reveals the true problem: this controller (https://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=13_195_199&item_id=121727) SUCKS. There's no response at all off zero until over 1/4 travel of the joysticks (throttle & brake are even worse), and linearity is similar to Donald Trump's signature. Sad

As far as aids go, I've never liked them, and don't use them here. I know the track from TT Isle Of Man: Ride on the Edge (https://www.iomtt-thegame.com/en) and vintage Guy Martin onboards. Just need to find new landmarks for the Ballaugh to Ramsey section for Pearson's version. The game also allows you to work on the track by section, but I never bothered. Just ran full laps until I got it.

Might I suggest, for a more accurate (and safer) IOM experience: make the starting grid gaps HUGE, like P2 is back in Governor's Dip, P3 at Signpost, etc., where ever approximates the 10 second interval at the start line, then use the laptimes instead of finishing order to determine rankings, like IRL. This is not a track to be dicing for position on Wink .

Downsides for pole sitter: will be responsible for letting others know flag has fallen, and will miss out on flying start to lap 1

I'm thinking of making this one, tho it will be with a controller. G25 has issues right now Sad .

edit: not looking good on controller front (XBox clone). can't get it driveable, too twitchy, worse with speed, 30 tries = once to Ago's Leap without wadding it

I think that the problem is due to Fairshift program...

That program just ensures that your shifts take the same amount of time as everyone else, right?

If it's causing such issues, just stop using it.

Anyone here claiming you'd get an advantage from a 0.2s difference in shifting will receive a serious side-eye from me.

FWIW, I'll not be attending this race either, so one less entry to worry about. I'm still trying to get my race rig together, just had too many other things happen recently. Hope to be back on track soon.

Sorry for my recent absences. Trying to rig up a new desk & race seat combo in the new abode, will re-appear when I've got something solid.

...1.    Has the token system worked well with all car sets?...

I think it has. Instead of being static as they have been, tho, I suggest that the most used cars get more expensive, and the least used cheaper, after each season. Less tokens for pros v. ams would be good, too.

New rig works (obv) but needs a lot of tweaking, mostly the FF. Two seconds off my regular Brab pace around here, and clumsy at that, lost its shine after half dozen laps. Sorrys to anyone caught by one of my "moments".

Ryzen 2400G w/ 16GB to replace 2008 vintage Phenom 9850 Black.

Heading into today's event, I only needed points for 9th place to clinch the season title no matter where Evil finished. Easy enough in a series where I'm almost always amongst the frontrunners, right? Well...

First off, apologies to anyone who was caught out by my constant disappearing act. If this race hadn't been crucial, I'd not have run at all. From the amount of time that everyone else was invisible (and I to them), I'm amazed I didn't get booted.

I did five qually laps, not a single one registered, and had "Pit In" on my board for the first five laps, replaced by "DQ" for the remainder, so no idea where I was or who I was fighting the entire race.  Huh

Add a still-sliding-around chair in front of a wobbly desk and my strongest emotion today was relief at the sight of the chequers, yet even that was tainted by still being shown (on my pitboard) in 13th place, not good enough.

But by the replay, I managed to finish in 8th place on the track, between Billy and Dave R., so that's one of three championships I led at some point this season I managed to hold onto. Smiley

Grats on championship, Axel.

Would have liked to have been there to at least challenge, tho unlikely I could have finished ahead of you.

I was too busy getting pointlessly driven across a good portion of southeastern Ontario (while suffering from the effects of a summertime cold) for no reasons other than wasting time, money, gasoline, and making me needlessly suffer both health-wise and financially by someone completely oblivious to other's concerns and with whom I am seriously considering severing relations at the conclusion of our present arrangement. "Friends" like him I do NOT need.
