GPB / WRS / KRP / MXB: improved the ambient shadow rendering

Are you talking about ambient occlusion or just normal shadows rendering ?

Great job on Motegi Manu !! One of my favorite tracks !

1 bug : I fall in th first corner, I press reset for 3 seconds and it put me just before turn 3 at the entry of the tunnel. Not every time but it happened.
1 suggestion : You should darken the texture under the tunnel. It is very very bright but in reality it is very dark under the tunnel

 ;) thumbs up

personnally i found it very unaturral as you don't do that IRL, in IRL you throtle, hard brake, realease gas (on a hard corner) and then re-accelerate only in the corner exit. With klax method, you had to keep throtle during all the turn.

<My two cents ON>
If you have a bike that have a lot of engine brake, you need to keep the gas during the turn or the bike collapse. I'm use to that and that's why I love bike with low to none electronic engine-brake thing in GPB.
<My two cents OFF>

Anyway, You did a great job and I will maybe give it a go. I have a spare G27 lying under my bed. Let see if I have the courage to start such a work.

My first one was a bandit, the S one

I turned it into naked after an accident

I sold it to a friend that still rides it today, 10 years later I put my hands on it for the first time :D The bike is 120000km (80k miles) now and do well !

because I am in my old (64 years)
No waaaaaay ! I thought you were a young man, like 18 years old !  ;D

One day in High school, at the end of the year, in june, I discovered that my best friend had indeed massive boobs (puberty done right) because the rest of the year, she was wearing large clothes. So I called her Pamela, in tribute to Pamela Anderson.
This day I was wearing a red short :/ So, she nicknamed me "Mitch" (Bay watch references) This nickname stick to me to end of high school. A lot of people didn't even new my real name ^^

When I started to play online, I wanted to make it more unique, I just reversed it and it sounded good ! It's prononced Tsh-a-mee by the way. Not 'take me' or 'tkemee' or whatever

Would be great to add a feature to set our balls weight and size. The bigger it is, the more lean and late brake you can take ^^

3D model ? Sure ! A lot of mod come from Ride 2. Sound ? Naaaahh I don't think so. Sounds in Ride 2 are very good and it is really hard to make a good sound mod for GPB.

What kind of head tracker ? If it's a VR helmet, yes it causes motion sickness. But with a tracker like Trackir or edtracker, you should not be sick.
Try to lewer the sensitivity. For me, the one:one setting of trackir is good.

Hello guys ! I had my first core.exe in beta 12b while testing the track. In came out of the track in turn 3, and the game froze, then crash.

Note, I changed the draw distance to 2000 and the texture_quality = 1 in gpbikes.ini. Could this have an impact ?

EDIT : How, Not only GPB but Trackir has crashed too. mhm. First time I see this. I gonna rollback the new settings and test it tomorow.

Switching to 1P, the easy way.

Hey guys, Many of you are still playing in 3rd P and I understand why. It is easier because you actually see the bike,
You can flirt with those kerbs without climbing on them because you see where they are.
3rd P also gives a better awareness of your direct surrounding and helps to avoid collisions. Maybe it will also gives you more feedback about your leaning angle but most of all, are your lifting up a wheel. It is easier to control wheelings and stoppies.

You already tryed the 1st p because you understand that this is the way it's meant to be riden. But it's not comfortable, you are not fast, you lose all your habits and it feels unnatural.

Here are, in my opinion, a few tips that can greatly ease the transition from 3rd P to 1st P.

1) : First of all, download, install and configure MaxHUD plugin :

It will bring back all the info you had at the bottom right of the screen, and even more !
What must be activated ?

- radar
- map

This will compensate the lost of surrounding awareness and help you to better locate you and other opponents on the track
The other features are cool but don't help to switch to 1P

2) : Activate the alternative view mode :

Code: [Select]
mode = 1
To select the "alternative" mode for the onboard views ( pointing to the direction of motion and pitch relative to the ground rather than the bike ).

3) : Start with the second inboard view (tank view)

This may be not the best one, but it has some advantages, It's fixed to the tank ! You will have to learn a new way of looking around you, it could be easier to have a fixed camera at the beggining.

4 ) : Settings !

There ! There you will make the difference ! Let's be honest, the default settings are not giving that much feedback.
It gives the feeling that the bike disapear on the side each time you lean a little bit.

- increase FOV : You will need at least 80 of FOV in order to see what happens on each sides
- pitch : Don't give too much pitch, the more you look up, the easier will be your corner exits
- corner anticipation : This is important !  I suggest to put it in corner anticipation rather than rider lean.
You don't need an exessive amount here. It will only make a real difference in tight corners. Set it to 20, it should be good to start.
- Tilt : This thing will make all the diference !! The lack of feedback and the arcade feeling of the default setting is due to this setting. Try to put it to 50 to see the real difference. Then you can adjust it if it's too much.

5 ) : Practice !

You should practice now, but choose wisely the bike and the track. Take a bike that is easy to lean, stable, and choose a track with nice and clean kerbs.

Here comes all the beauty of GPB ! You will need to apply real life concept.
-> don't look your feet, look ahead, as far as possible, where you want to go !

Make some easy laps to accomodate with the new feeling. Maybe you can adjust the settings a little bit. Now, try to be as close as possible from the kerbs to feel the bike under yourself.

Choose a bike with a camera set high on the bike, You need to have the more possible vision around and in front of the bike.

6) : Enjoy !

If you have a Trackir, EDTracker or any device that can track your head movement, USE IT !! This is a real game change.
