Release notes
- a clean installation is strongly recommended
- replays are not compatible with the previous versions

- The network ports have been changed to try to be more compatible: http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=5547.0
- VR support is now integrated: http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=5545.0
- It is now possible to use categories to better organize tracks. Simply create a new directory in the "tracks" folder and move the tracks into it. The directory name should then appear in the "Testing Setup" and "Race Setup" pages
- World Racing Series now supports an external folder for mods, but only for cars, tyres, helmets, paints and tracks. The default path is "My Documents"/PiBoSo/World Racing Series/mods/ but it's possible to change it: http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=5.msg84039#msg84039
- It is now possible to scale the cars' mirrors resolution: http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=5.msg84041#msg84041
- To minimize join lag, please make sure that the server administrator restricts the allowed bike categories as much as possible

Modding:
- All modded cars need to be updated because the tires physics data and models have been moved to the "tyres" shared folder
- for examples of animated flags, please check the SCR files in Holjes and Victoria
- A message is now shown on screen when saving the track deformation: http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=2322.0 and dynamic groove: http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=3953.0

new: support for dirt buildup on the car
Can you elaborate on how to enable dirt buildup on car? Do we need to create a texture file or is it enabled per default as in MXB?

Unfortunately the stock cars don't yet have the dirt layers.

What a let down after an entire year. An update that breaks all mods but offers no improvements. Are there any physics inprovements?

There are no physics improvements.
Is there anything different that could induce the feeling of changed physics? I have only tried the RX so far. And the handling seems to be different. The car is much more unstable under braking and has a bigger tendency to understeer. Did you change the tyres?

Yes, there is a change in the simulation of tyres on dirt.

Ok thank you. I might have to backpaddel on the stability under braking not so sure about that. But the tendency to understeer is def there.

On another note: there seems to be more dirt being flipped up by tyres. Looks realistic. Is that also due to the change in tyres or did you change anything substantially to how the dirt particles fly around?

The particles code and data are the same. It should be the effect of the physics changes.

Btw, saved replays don't seem to load anymore. It always crashes to desktop when trying to load a saved replay.

Good to see that you still care for WRS, thank you.  :)


Here two small things which I've found.

Stats page - if a driver is connected to a server and you click at the Comp link, no driver name is displayed but you get this error message:
Code: [Select]
Licenses query failed:
Unknown column '5D93F176' in 'where clause'
1054

Beta12 times don't record yet in the stats.

Thank you for the report.
Beta12b coming soon.
