Generic Overhauled Timing Information

    One of the areas where I think Assetto Corsa has great room for improvement, and is in real need of it, is an overhauled timing system on console.

    The main issue is the HUD info needs to have live timing and not the current set-up of updating each lap. The image below shows my starting position of P13 on the left and my current position of P8. The timing tower is way behind and offers no gap to opponents or updated positions until the start of L2.

    I have to say it, but this is handled far better by rival games. The PCars system shows your gap to the cars immediately ahead and behind. This along with time to the leader would be great and would be less obtrusive on the screen.

    Also, the timing tower should be able to be displayed along with the tyre info data below. We should not have to choose between them.

    Would it be possible to have all HUD elements pushed closer to the edge of the screen. There is too much space gone to waste out there.

    Another little timing issue which really bugs me is that at the end of a race we are unable to see total race time and gap between cars instead we are simply shown the fastest lap for each car. After a race this is pointless on it's own.

    Would it be possible to insert an additional column with the requested information?

    How it looks on PC - this might be an indication where it's headed on console as well.


    The leaderboard is semi-static, updating each completed lap. The Realtime app is needed to show current gaps.


    For practice/qualifying it'll show lap times instead of course. Note that on the PC version on the menu leaderboard/timing there's also no gap to leader/car in front for lap times shown, only total time.

    @Epistolarius Is the Real-time app an official Kunos app or a mod? The Real-time app is just the sort of thing we could do with.

    After a race even total time would be fine as we could work out gaps ourselves.

    Thanks for posting those images.

    Realtime is an official app. Should be noted that it shows the gaps to cars physically in front/behind you, not in terms of positions. But it's the only app that shows gaps in real time.

    Currently the timing system is far too primitive for a SIM. Also reg. not having to choose between the timing tower and tyre app this is one of my gripes. I want the map on without the timing tower as I find it intrusive. I don't use the map for navigation but i use it mostly for Qualifying purposes so I can see any cars ahead that have spun on track or cars coming behind me when I have spun so I can keep out of the way.

    I propose an option like which we got eventually in GT5 after many complaints where we could turn on and off each individual app.

    Honestly the overhauled timing combined with the realtime app is top-notch.
    Thanks KS.

    That's good to hear and hopefully us console users will be pulled from the dark ages to experience it too.

    What do the various colors indicate in the names on the real-time app as well as dots below the names on leader board.
