Suggestions and wishlist / Re: Explicit error message for missing tyres ?
« on: February 11, 2018, 05:33:45 PM »
If  people bothered to read the notice at the top of every BikeMOD release they would know to download the tyres ;D :P
Very true and trust me, I know first hand :)

But it doesn't change the fact that GPB shoul dbe a bit more vocal about what's going wrong, and that in general (e.g. "missing bike" when you connect to a server is silly, tell me which bike is missing you bastard of a sadistic software :) ).

Suggestions and wishlist / Explicit error message for missing tyres ?

The number of people that forget to download tyres and hence have troubles is huge.
Would it be possible for GPB to display a warning when the tyre files are missing ?
It would solve a lot of issues.

I've always hated the stance of some bikers with respect to noise.
From 50cc scooters making more noise than light airplanes (to go no faster than 65Kmh) to silly harleys sounding like 7.5 earthquake when entering a tunnel (to go no faster than 90kmh) and to finish with gonzo racers shattering windows with their "race tuned" exhausts (used downtown, mostly stopped at red lights).
I've got myself an aftermarket exhaust (homologated and with db killers), but I try to make it sing when and where it make sense.
I was amazed by f1 cars back in the 1.5L turbo era seen live in Monza (right above the pits, it was possible at the time): that doesn't mean I'm in favor of people making this kind of noise while commuting.

eCars are incoming, bikes will follow. People never see the appeal of new stuff in the beginning. But luckily people change their mind and, often, die and get replaced :)

Suggestions and wishlist / Re: First person replay camera?
« on: February 09, 2018, 07:23:01 AM »
@Piboso, would it be possible to have a replay camera that is exactly like the live first person view? Would help a lot since external video capture programs, like Gamecaster, MSI afterburner and such, severely impact the frame rate (at least on my rig).
Would be nice indeed.

For video capture you can try OBS too (when I tried it seemed to be the one with less impact, best overall options etc).

Hi Max. Been riding around Donington GP with the WSBK bikes for a comparison between them and I noticed something strange when riding the Kawasaki (haven't had time to check the other bikes for the same issue). The AW light goes on and off while braking for a corner (off throttle) which I find a bit weird. Is AW measuring the speed differens between the front and rear wheel (like TC i guess?) or is it measuring the bikes axis compared to the ground level? Does the behavior have anything to do with what you have described above (the discussion with Piboso that is linked) or is it something else?
The plugin only shows the 3 signals (TC, AW, EB) as GB provides them.
At the moment, if te ECU AW says the throttle must not be open more than 50% and the rider is opening only 40%, the AW signal stil goes to 1 (and thelight in the plugin goes on). Same for TC and EB. I sugested to chnage this to something that makes more sense, looks like PiBoSo may do it:

Feminism is not a fight for women rights. It only helps ugly/fat feminists to attack nice women only because they are nice women.
Err ... what about no ?

Grid girl or not, in my opinion is not the problem, my problem is that today world's descision is now based on whatever media want people to do.

What would you expect from a corporation called Liberty Media ? :)

I also think that the fact that this topic is discussed and brought to light is a good thing, regardless of the eventual outcome.
Surely agree on that.

Maybe the 1st time I (partially) disagree with you, had to happen sooner or later :)

I have a very simple view on this: beauty is ... well ... beautiful.
I find it normal to appreciate and admire beauty, no matter the subject (cars, bikes, paintings, sculptures, architecture, clothes, music whatever).

I totally agree on equal opportunities (even seems strange to have to say it out loud) and on the fact that unfortunately we're not yet there.
I just don't think getting rid of grid girls is part of that needed change or it would help it in any way whatsoever.

In the interview you quote:
You were a grid girl, one of the girls that Liberty Media no longer wants…
“I don't see it as a very sensible decision. The problem is not the girls but lies in the head of those men who think they are available just because they wear a short skirt, heels and are next to a bike.".

I'd go with that.

Support / Re: Vsync not working.
« on: February 07, 2018, 04:51:11 PM »
i know how gsync & freesync work bro. i have a freesync monitor with an nvidia card so thats why i said if anyone wants to swap a similar card lol.

Ive fixed it now and ive got vsync working, woohoo no more screen tearing.
im pretty sure it was to do with my cpu. its on its way out and it doesnt help that it runs at about 90 degrees+ and i get a overtemp error at least once a week... too poor to upgrade rn even tho i have everything but a new cpu lol.
90c CPU to run GPB is an awful lot.
Sell the 1070 (you can make pretty money on it right now) and buy something less (a 1050ti is enough for GPB @ 1080p) and a CPU :)

General Discussion / Re: Dynamic vs NDS Tracks...
« on: February 07, 2018, 04:48:18 PM »
2 Part Deux.) Does the server 'save' the groove file or is it created and updated dynamically and then discarded when an event is over? If it is saved, where would one find it on the server? I poked around but it didn't bite me if it was there so it is either shy or it isn't saved where I looked.
Groove file creation is manually triggered as far as I can remember. Nothing is created/stored automagically.

The server in particular loads a groove file at startup (if present), then uses it updating it (in memory) as long as time goes by.
I think it saves some sort of "temporary" groove files in case of events with multiple sessions (e.g. quali in the morning race in the afternoon) so that if the 1st session takes place today but the subsequent tomorrow, the server keeps the groove between the two sessions.
When the event is over, the "temporary" groove file goes away.

Maybe other with experience in running server/races/events can confirm.

Thx guys. I'd suspect the problem is elsewhere for that user then.

I also use it all the time and have had no issues. I really like the TC - EB - AW indicators.
Hope that PiBoSo improves their behaviour though, today EB and AW indicators are mostly useless (Beta13 - output plugin - ECU status).

If anybody has ideas on how to make these indicators nicer, please provide .tga files (with transparency) of a mini-dash, 3 lights (off/on) etc. I'm not a photoshop kind of guy :)

General Discussion / Re: Dynamic vs NDS Tracks...
« on: February 07, 2018, 01:52:16 PM »
As a host of online tracks the subject of this thread:;topicseen#new  brings up a couple of questions.

1.) Do 'NDS' Tracks develop a Racing Groove? My understanding is they do not, however, I have yet to do any real research or testing yet.

2.) When using a 'Dynamic Surface' Track, which groove file gets updated? Client or Server or Both?

3.) Does having a discrepancy between groove files (client version does not match server version) create problems when connecting to an online track?
  3.a.) If there is a discrepancy, which file takes precedence, the Client's or the Server's?

The reason I ask is I hosted a race yesterday using the standard NC Mugello track, not the NDS version. I assume it has started to develop a racing groove (I have yet to see if a groove file was created or modified as it did not occur to me to look until I read the above posts this morning and I will not have access to the server until this evening).

If anyone can shed any light upon the above or point me to documentation I would greatly appreciate it.

1. No.

2. If you're offline, it's your local groove that gets updated, of course. If you're online then it's the server's one but as the server broadcasts it to all clients, you could say that both are updated (but locally you will not have a file with the groove from the server, it isn't stored on disk).

3. You can't have a discrepancy on groove files. Your local groove file is only used offline. Online you get the groove from the server.
