Not at that price (45E), but looks plenty of fun :)

Off Topic / Headphones sound virtualization, for free !

I didn't try that personally but it may be of interest for people without a sound card with decent virtualization for headphones.

I kind of stumbled on this when looking into the Sennheiser GSX 1000. I have an old sound blaster that supports CMSS3D and does a very nice job, but he sennheiser thingy looks very nice, is driverless and more handy and seems to be on par in terms of audio quality (maybe even less noisy as it's external.

I'm unsure how well this would work with PiBoSo's games, but I guess that OpenAL will see a 5.1 or 7.1 output device and output sound accordingly (i.e. with positional clues). That will then go into the software virtualization of your choice and give you nice positional sound into your headphones.

The other solution I posted about a while ago (using OpenAL_Soft instead of OpenAL, and plugging in one HRTF) looks more elegant to me and may be better overall, but with this one you can use some of the best rated virtualization stuff (Creative CMSS-3D, Sennheiser's one in the GSX) for games not using OpenAL.

P.S.
Some info on binaural sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb6dMYkc6r8 (only works with headphones, and if you have sound virtualization devices, you have to turn the virtualization off for the example in the video to work).

Suggestions and wishlist / Explicit error message for missing tyres ?
« on: February 11, 2018, 09:42:30 AM »
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.

Bug Reports / Beta13 - output plugin - ECU status
« on: January 20, 2018, 05:12:09 PM »
Hi Pib,
I find very weird readings of the Engine Brake bit when the engine brake is set to 3 (its max) on the murasama.
The bit is at 1 (so EB doing something) even when I'm on the gas, weird !
Setting EB at 2 seems to give a more reasonable behavior.

TC bit works fine, AW bit too (even if the AW itself is just horrible on high levels: it fires even while leaning a lot ...).

Google-translated (I'm lazy):

Ducati will have a full range of electric motorcycles within a dozen years. It is not Claudio Domenicali, the boss of the Reds, who says it, but Matthias Muller, the president of the Volkswagen group.

At the end of October, during a press conference entitled Roadmap E (translate: "Roadmap for mobile electricity"), the latter has indeed indicated that all brands of the group, Volkswagen to Audi, in through Lamborghini, Skoda, Bugatti and Ducati, will offer an electric vehicle within twelve years in each segment of their range. In the case of Ducati, this means an electric roadster, an electric sports car, an electric trail, etc. Asked about the issue, Domenicali confirmed Volkswagen's perspective, while insisting that the time was now for V4, and that the ducatists should savor this moment and "enjoy life". An advice that sounds almost like a funeral oration for the thermal. That said, the funeral is not for tomorrow and twelve years is long. Who knows who will own Ducati in 2030?

Support / New mods folder - question
« on: August 24, 2017, 07:44:10 PM »
What is exactly searched in the new mods folder ?

It seems to me that the content of folders bikes, tracks and rider can be "relocated" to the new folder, but not  the plugins folder (which may be intentional) nor the misc folder (mostly used for the bike stands).

Custom hardware / EDTracker wireless is out
« on: July 20, 2017, 09:33:29 PM »
http://www.edtracker.co.uk/support/news/29-27-06-2017-wireless-news

69 GBP though ... a bit steep.

My wired EdTracker Pro works very fine, if the wireless is just as good (actually, there are some improvements) and is without the wire (which seems to be the case), then ...

Wondering how it will work with an ultra-wide screen (21:9 or even 32:9).

MaX.
