Online free practice lap timetables / (sector)times Paul RIcard

    I started to practice online for the first time last night and even though it's not a glitch free experience as of yet, it was mostly a pleasant experience apart from the fact that my virtual mirror (single monitor setup) constantly gives the impression of being further ahead of a car then "actuality", which is something to get used to I suppose. Lesson learned.

    One of my observations where a couple of lap times listed as valid: 1:46:xx and more recently (just now) 1:51:xx are hard to comprehend if you look at the sector times of those laps:
    first sector listed as 0:26:xx, which seems unrealistic (avg seems to be 31, 32 sec)
    second sector: relatively slow times posted by same 1:51:xx lap : 32:9
    Third sector: relatively slow again compared to the timetable.

    Are there exploits in sectors 1 and 3 at PR?

    (sector 3, because another run indicates a 6 seconds faster sector time and clearly unachievable when following the ideal driving line or compare to fastest driver I could find online.

    This is not to accuse anybody or cry about my own driving (in)abilities but merely out of interest to what extend timetables can be trusted, since it is such an integral part of sim racing imo.

    If this is already being addressed or mentioned then I apologize for not finding the post(s).

    Nicely developing sim, keep it going.

    I was wondering the same thing, have seen a lap time at PR where sector 1 was 3 or 4 seconds faster than everyone else in server but other sectors they were average or slower compared to other drivers.
    Makes me think there is a massive cut in sector 1 that doesnt invalidate the lap.

    Sector 3, likewise. Just browsed the servers available for Misano and Nürburgring and can't find any abnormalities in respective timetables, seems to be a PR issue?

    I saw 1.42.xxx in PR yesterday ....

    I saw someone go straight on at the first turn, cutting out at least turn 1, 2,3 and 4.
    Maybe that is the exploit?
    I admit, I didn't look for their times, just watched them cut the track and thought to myself 'what a fool'.

    Well, that's definitely a short cut, but when I try to reproduce this scenario it simply lists the lap as invalid (red colored laptime).

    Hey I just found myself here having noticed the same thing... So much effort spent trying to better my lap times then I get jumped by these two!

  9. I've seen a few 1.4x laps too. They're definitely using exploits in sector 1.
    Fortunately it seems to be happening only in multiplayer servers because in the special events leaderboard the world record is a 1:52.2xx.

    Maybe the practice servers have more relaxed track limits compared to the offical hotlap leadboard?

    Maybe its possible to disable track limits for servers? I wonder if @Minolin can see these times in ratings. Then give a big hit to these cutters rating to keep them out of decent servers once ratings are used for mp.

    After all he did make a cutters app for AC to specifically catch these fools out. ;)

    It's a bug I believe. I was driving together with a streamer and had an invalidated lap. The game then showed that invalidated lap as my best time on the streamer's end, while for me it showed my non-invalidated laptime as being my fastest.

    That might very well be the issue, its plausible at least.

    Possible bug: online lap times leaderboard (server side) displays invalidated lap times (client side) as valid.

    Hopefully this gets picked up by the dev team.:)

    Just popped onto my server to check everything's running ok and i noticed the top time!!

    Looks like sector 3 has a problem too.

    In any game mode even multiplayer..when you press ESC i belive it is 2nd option Timetable(idk is this exact name of it) and when you click it it opens you this menu. Now you can also click on names and you will get drop down menu of all the laps and times of it.

    I know that window but i can't find other ones, just mine :mad:
  17. Here you can see also another bug. Look at M.Gabrielli times. Exactly the same time with two different cars.

    That happens when you join same server with another car. It's also frustrating because you have to overcome the previous lap time before +/- or laptime prediction is starting to work.
