I think WRS guys would agree too.

Wrong.We've been waiting far too long for some show stopping bugs to be fixed.  Plus we'll get the memory usage fixes faster too. This bug was just found. I first reported the beam axle bug on September 21st of 2016....

The fix was successful. MX Bikes' online memory usage dropped 570MB with two mod bikes.
That's spectacular.

Only because it was spectacularly bad before  :-[

Definitely good news!

I understand other sims need releases and MXB is at the back of the queue, but would it be possible to push a hotfix for the multiplayer, like a beta 7.1 or 7a? It would go a long way to securing some of the new community we've inherited recently.

Not sure it would be worth releasing a patch with one fix only, that doesn't guarantee to solve the online crashes with mod bikes  :-\

But its not online crashes with Mod bikes that are the problem - its the dropping to track/dsq problem that's been fed back since B12 came out making online races a farce - a problem introduced with the latest Beta.

You know that one right ?  ??? :-\ :'(

Talking about memory usage and online (I come from the MXB side but I guess it's valid everywhere).

I don't understand why you dropped the temporary model of bikes (the "ghost"). To me it would have made a lot more sense to keep the ghost but set it to being the same for all bikes. So you load it once, and everytime someone connects you simply display the ghost that you already have stored. Then next time you go to pits, you proceed with the complete loading of bike + rider. Currently (at least on MXB) each new client connecting is up to 2s frame freeze here.

Anyhow, good to know you found the hole - hoping it address the freeze on connection issue too.

MX Bikes beta7b - 2017/11/14
Mx Bikes beta7b available.

Changelog:
fix: memory optimizations
fix: freeze when another client connects while on track
fix: "very high" network connection setting
fix: supermoto tyres ambient shadow
fix: Nevada sky

This is great news, but I have to ask as I am sure others will.

You said a few days ago:

To be honest, haven't tested GP Bikes in a while. Sadly, GPB is now third in the update line: WRS -> KRP -> GPB -> MXB
Apologies for the multiplayer problems. A new build will be published as soon as possible

Yet MXB jumped the queue and just got an update before its time so can we guys with GPB get a bone too, pretty please kind sir?
