    I see nobody has posted this yet, so there I go.

    Main points I remember:

    • As anticipated on twitter, he found the bug that was causing extra vibrations on the wheel, especially for some cars at some speed. Apparently this fix makes the ffb transmission much smoother and detailed for all cars, tracks, and speeds. Together with the previously announced recalibration of SAT, it looks like it will be a big change (but I guess we'll have to recalibrate ffb for all combos :(). As it is a one-line bug-fix, I understand this will be included in 1.2
    • There is no fixed date for the release of 1.2, as a big bug might come up. BUT he hopes and is optimistic that it will be this week and said "this is probably the last Sunday before 1.2 is out"
    • He coded a provisional engine stall and starter button system. This was previously left out as it might create problems for auto-clutch users, but he coded this as something that kicks in only if auto-clutch is off, so it should work. The system was super-simple, but looked like it was working very well. He says they hope to do this IF it does not create too many issues with the UI and WHEN they have sounds and graphics ready for it.
    • He hinted at the end at Aris and himself thinking about how to code interactions between different aerodynamic parts (i.e. front aero affecting back aero)
    • He showed again the new AI. As I do not use it, I can't say how big the improvements are, but it seemed to work nicely, though some interactions during overtakes are still to work on.
    • He showed the new cameras for vallelunga and said they are ready for most tracks and should be done for 1.2 release. I liked them a lot. It's going to be much easier to follow MP races once you're off.
    • He said he's optimistic the false start issue will be solved on a server basis using the plugins that should come up: servers will choose whether to allow for false starts and how to deal with punishing them
    That's all I can remember.

    I always welcome improvements, however the FFB is one area where I personally think AC has it spot on so any changes im a little nervous of.

    If it is a big change, I am sure many of us will feel it is strange, at the beginning. I, for one, have no track experience, so I barely know how ffb "should" feel. That is why I got into AC in the first place: everybody said it was the most realistic. If those vibrations are not coming from the physics, then I suppose we should not like them, even if maybe they perhaps made the wheel feel more alive. If Aris and Stefano think it feels more realistic, then it is a good start. After that, I'll look into what the most experienced people say. Of course I know it will be a pain for me to calibrate it right, as my only reference point will be the "old" AC.

    Add to this that I can't never find suggestions for fanatic gt2 (apparently it is not that common).

    Well, we don't race that much at 40/50 kph, unless it is a Citroen 2cv race!

    Did he show some lap in vallelunga with the Taatus, riding the curbs?
     
  11. FFB is set very low on my PC, so I would be surprised if I "feel" much of a difference.

    Hi Rycil: yes. I forgot about that. Went trough 3 or 4 laps, hitting as many curbs as he could. Some laps were faster and more aggressive, some slower and smoother. If you watch the video, he mentions exact times. Curbs did not cause any "suck in" reaction, which is very promising.

    Really glad to hear FFB improvements (tire vibration and SAT). Cannot wait for release now.
     
  14. Somebody can do screenshot again? On my smartphone i've seen him again showing changelog, and scrolling down car folder list, i read something me i think ;)
     
  15. As g27 users, for me that problem it specially caused by too high ffb force and kerb effect value, causing ffb clipping, and making that famous shaking effect on the wheel.
    If you don't keep wheel really firm it can makes you follow it into wrong direction, and get sucked in instantly.
    They polished rumble/vibration effect, so it help to not have wrong reaction from the wheel anymore. And that's the solution to me.

    Well, just watched part of the stream and yes,I am definitively looking forward the 1.2! So much improvement apparently!

    Nice job KS!
