    This is a very good idea, but should not really be necessary. All complex simulations should have a User Manual detailing all functions of the simulation. From how to choose teams right through to how to set up your wheel and pedals etc. This should be supplied by the developers of the simulation.

    Please don't take this as a rejection of your fine idea and I wish you well with it and look forward to its assistance when playing the simulation.
    Good luck and thanks.

    Some years ago I went to buy the TFX flight sim and when the guy from the store pick the box he asked, do this came with a spare part of the airplane?

    Sure it would be nice but i don't think this will happen.. just look at AC... there is the same Issue. Many things are Documented from the Dev's in the Forum but it's hard to find and it's always just in English. Sure for us who are Online here English is not the Problem. But for many others who don't understand English well will not have the chance to get the right Informations they need to get the best out of the Game.

    Anyway thanks to Heiko for his work.

    It’s pretty strange that the game doesn’t have any sort of manual. 99.9% of people (even people who once drove competitively IRL, ahem) aren’t going to understand the difference between “TC1”, “TC2” and the various engine maps (for instance).

    These cars are complex and there needs to be some sort of reference manual to help players understand what all the different settings do.

    There’s also no documentation re: the game settings themselves. It’s left to the user to figure out (via laborious trial and error) what things like “Dynamic Dampening” do.

    It would also be nice to have something detailing the rules of the Blancpain series.

    It’s hard to understand why someone would release a complex simulator, and then require their customers to comb through hundreds of forum posts to understand WTF is going on.

    Forza et al can get away with this approach, but with ACC it’s a recipe for frustration.

    I haven't seen a manual for software in a long time. Adobe photoshop doesn't come with a manual either. You either have to buy a course or find free help online. Most the information about how the GT cars and blancpain series works is out there somewhere.

    I agree though, it would be hugely helpful to have more information on a lot of things. That information was even there in the past when you hovered over things. I can only imagine something is in the works. It's a pretty big task though, we sort of need a blancpain manual, a manual for each of the cars and then a manual for the the software itself.

    Hello everyone !
    I think a user manual is an obligation for Kunos and also a matter of respect towards those who have purchased ACC.
    Those who work and do not have too much time to devote themselves want the time spent driving to be as productive as possible, instead of spending hours on the PC also looking for basic information.
    This forum is a valuable but too vast resource. Lots of different and sometimes conflicting information on the same topic ... which one to follow? Most of the time looking for um how-to, after reading a message without finding a certain confirmation I get angry and turn off.
    In short, Kunos has sold an unfinished product and is using us to develop it along the way. In practice, I (like many others) paid the laboratory mouse for a fee. Smart!
    Then I do two maths (40 € ACC + 15 € DLC = 55 €) multiplied by about 40000 (estimate by default using the number of as on steam, or even only 10000 which are the ranking positions of the events).
    and after cashing in that amount, don't you even give me the basic product information? not even the descriptions of the items in the menus !!!
    I love ACC and I think a great job is done, but as long as it does not respond to the relative official documentation, this product must be considered not complete and consequently not salable!

    I apologize for my level of English (I registered with GTranslate) just as I have to do to read every single post. I hope I have expressed my opinion in an understandable way.
    Why don't we do a survey in the forum and see how many we want an Official Manual?

    Grazie e buona serata a tutti!

    PS: Adobe Photoshop have link in the help for the online docs and many free tutorial and more ... and also always in the help menu are a small basic documentation. But if you want learn more and more training is only solution. Same is for driving in real live and in the game too. But when you buy a car you find a Car Manual and Use and Care Library.
