Car Setup Save Reminder

    I am a terrible tuner. I have so much trouble adjusting the setups of my cars. There is nothing worse, however, than tweaking for possibly hours...finally finding the setup that works for you and then leaving the track without saving that setup. If you've been making changes for the last 90 minutes and you're as brain dead as I am, you'll never remember those setup changes. It happens to me quite often.

    Suggestion: If we deviate from the default setup and the current setup is not saved, how about a pop-up asking "Quit Track Without Saving Setup?" or something like that. Just like it asks you if you really want to Quit/Exit Assetto Corsa just before you shutdown. This way you won't end up slamming your head against the wall while tears roll down your face, like I do a couple of times a week when I forget to save my setup.

    Maybe you could put a checkbox "Never Ask Me This" or something if people find this extra mouse click annoying.

    For a very long time now, the last setup you made for a car is saved under the setup category "generic" as "last".

    Edit: ...and I mean automatically, as you leave the session.

    Thanks! While that's a help, the feature would still be good -- especially considering console players can't access the file system the way we can.

    At least without the "Never ask me again" option, I would find this very annoying indeed.
    (Just to confirm that.)

    A good thing could be to save last settings with a datetime-track-car (in any order, enventually incl. relevant weather parameters) suffix or just as the whole filename.

    Then next time the user pick the same car on the same track, game will offer to load this auto-saved setup (kindda "use last setup defined on 01/01/2017 10:32:15 ? Y/N")

    ^^ not for me, thx. This starts to go into the direction of software patronizing user. The setups don't get lost, user knows where to find them. It's good the way it is now. The setups are saved for each car/track combination in case you don't know.

    Personally i also think it works well the way it is now. I would also consider the last option being extended to car/track & not just car.

    Isn't it car and track now?!?

    It's not in the track-specific folder.

    yeah it kinda does. I didn't word my response right. If I move onto another track (B) & save or exit and then realise I forgot to save my setup from the previous track then I've lost that unsaved setup from track A as last is now pointing to track B. It would be somewhat handy if each track & car the last option under each track. I can understand the reason for not doing this as this would bloat setup files as effectively there could be a last setup for each car & track combo. Its no biggy. It works well the way it is.

    Yes, yes...you're right, of course. Saving the "last" setup in the track specific folder would be the only improvement I can see here.

    BTW, when I forget to save my setup after a tweaking session I usually go back right away and copy the setup from "generic" to the specific track folder. If I don't remember then it obviously wasn't too important ;-) So for me it's perfectly fine...the responsibility split between computer and human :)

    As we discover later in the thread it is not and you write false statement, which is not a nice way to contribute, better to check first, not after.
    And your way isn't better at all: patronizing people because everyone SHOULD KNOW what what not so obvious for you after all.

    So, the main concern here is quite linked to the big lack of something in AC : DOCUMENTATION, there is none. So unless reading hundreds of posts on a forum, official or not, asking, "hacking" the game and experimenting, we can't know what is something, where something is saved or expected to be, for many items.

    The problem here is that with like many things in Assetto, you have to find out the hard way. There's nothing telling you that it saves the last setup, you have to discover that yourself, and if you never go into the "generic" folder of setups either in game or in the documents folder, that won't happen. That's not very good usability.

    A lot of people here are in a group that spend a very large amount of time on the game, so I don't think most opinions here are actually useful when it comes to these kinds of suggestions.

    Not sure to understand what you mean there.

    And sure, the simracing addicted/committed people doesn't play in the same "league" as casual drivers. But I saw some people are just blindly arrogant, because they know something after spending 48h or more reading forums and playing without a break, they assume everyone should know such "obvious" thing. That's a shame.

    AC should not be "limited" to a kind of players because of such stupid lack. And those hole in documentation is an open window to crazy speculations seen on others thread like how car behave between upgrades.

    @Kunos: please document non obvious things.
    @all who knows: write a community documentation with what you've found, and Kunos devs could just validate what was right or wrong.
