General Discussion / New official track
« on: December 03, 2018, 04:46:18 PM »
Soon, hopefully, work will start on a new official track.

Which one would you prefer?
Please vote ( you can choose two! ) and please write your opinion, too.

General Discussion / Crowdfunding 2...
« on: November 19, 2018, 02:31:51 PM »

New spin.

I've been in contact with the Nurb for all of 2018 for the indoor kart track project, and I am wondering:
1) How many would join a crowd-funding campaign to have the laser-scanned Nordschleife officially in GP Bikes?
2) How many think it would be a good idea?

There already is a mod version, but:
1) is it an authorized conversion?
2) does it come from laser-scanned data?
3) it doesn't use the graphics engine at its full potential

Nonetheless, I'm not sure that a better and official version of the Nurb would be enough for a successful campaign.

General Discussion / PiBoSo and simracing youtubers
« on: November 05, 2018, 09:19:39 PM »
As you may or may not know, lately a new racing simulator has been released ( as Early Access on Steam ): KartKraft.
I was expecting YouTube videos comparing it with KRP, that is its only proper competitor ( everything else is just scaled down cars ).

Five days after release, still nothing.
There are comparisons with Automobilista and rF2, though  :-\

This problem is part of a trend, though.
Even when KRP was released, most simracing youtubers completely ignored it. A few asked for a free key. They were given out. Only one preview has been published. That was it.

Maybe some of you know the simracing world better than I do and could enlighten me.
What could be the cause of being completely ignored? After all, KRP is the best kart sim on the market, and karting is a big part of real racing. It also has some neat features that few big budget sims can match.
Is it because the graphics is not good enough?
Is it because it's too expensive? Then why not ask for a key? And there is a free demo anyway.
Or do I have a bad reputation and I'm ostracized?  :(

Mods / 2D Dashes
« on: October 30, 2018, 11:15:33 PM »

Starting with Beta14, 2D dashes support has been changed and extended.

It is possible to have multiple 2D dashes in the gpbikes/misc/dashes/ directory, in the GP Bikes installation directory.
Each bike can set the required dash in the hud.cfg file. For example:
Code: [Select]
dash = default
If the line is missing, the "default" dash is automatically used.

... To Be Continued ...

Documentation / Windows desktop scaling
« on: September 23, 2018, 09:15:48 PM »

If the Windows scaling is set to a value over 100% then World Racing Series will start at a lower resolution to compensate for the automatic scaling.

To solve the issue and use the full resolution: right-click on the World Racing Series icon -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Disable display scaling on high DPI settings

Could you please send via PM the MAX file and texture of the highlighted object only?

Thank you.

General Discussion / World Racing Series beta14 WIP
« on: July 29, 2018, 05:04:05 PM »

Work is in progress to rewrite the suspensions code and simulate the live axle torque reaction, the axle wrap, and so on.
No pictures or videos to show yet, sorry. There is still a lot to do.

Plugins / UDP Proxy
« on: July 18, 2018, 04:01:57 PM »
Starting with Beta14, GP Bikes integrates a plugin that allows to receive UDP data from the simulated bike in realtime.

To enable it and set the parameters, edit the file "gpbikes/proxy_udp.ini" in the GP Bikes installation folder:
Code: [Select]
enable = 1
port = 30000
ip =
delay = 1

port: outbound port
ip: inbound address and, optional, port ( if missing, the outbound port is used )
delay: hundredths of second between packets

The packet format:
"data": null-terminated string
"state": integer. 0: software running; 1: on-track, simulation paused; 2: on-track, simulation running
"time": integer, milliseconds.
The rest of the packet follows the "SPluginsBikeData_t" structure of the proxy plugin:

General Discussion / Crowdfunding...

What would you expect from a crowdfunding campaign?
What should the goal be?
GP Bikes on Steam?
All the projects on Steam?
New features?
A MotoGP competitor?

Please share your opinion...

Please note that even a very successful campaign would only help the art side. The code side is already going almost as fast as possible. Adding new programmers would be too complex and time-consuming.

General Discussion / Happy belated birthday to GP Bikes
« on: May 26, 2018, 10:39:18 PM »

The 6th of May of 10 years ago GP Bikes alpha1 was released.

General Discussion / It's almost time...
« on: April 06, 2018, 10:21:02 PM »
... to release GP Bikes on Steam.

However, in addition to the x64 build and improved netcode, it needs new and better content.
Starting with a middle-class bike, that would also be used as the demo bike for the standalone version.

Now the question is: could you please post all the data you have on a 2018 Moto2?
Schematics, blueprints, wheelbase, length, width, height, engine torque curve, ... Anything is useful.

Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Any TrackIR user around?
« on: March 19, 2018, 01:06:28 PM »

If there is any TrackIR user around, could you please do me a BIG favour?
Could you please download the latest KRP build and test if the rotation and translation axis work correctly?
