Well here's a recording of my latest "enlightenment" I just sort of reminded myself to look ahead, flow as much as I can and I managed a '38.  Only caught the last part of it and the next few laps.  What would be some tips one could field?

Assume I'm doing everything wrong, that's usually a good place to start with me.  I'll try the BMW, I quite liked it when I rode with it before.  One issue I'm finding is I used to be able to front and rear brake simultaneously which gave me much greater control on the bike and leans but on this current bike if I hit the rear the engine just dies out and I coast like a tomato until I blip it back up and get a nice wiggle on a lucky day.

Another issue is setup, I have no idea what most of the stuff does, the only two things I tend to tweak are the rake (increase it if the bike is super twitchy) and final drive, to soften excessive wheelies and avoid maxing out on top speed, which hasn't happened in a long while.

Being able to use front and rear brake simultaniously depends on the bike. I never am able to use the rear brake constantly because I change my engine brake in a way that the bike likes to slide the rear. When it slides the rear it becomes more stable untill a certain point. Ideally I change engine brake untill I just need a slight tap on the rear brake when i start braking so that the rear slides out but its fairly difficult to do so I would not advice practising that right now(also supsension can help with stability under braking but its not that easy to determine what you need from it. On the bmw I increase the rebound in rear and decrease the bump in the rear and also lower springrate but maybe thats just how I like it, for me this makes the bike more stable, less snappy/twitchy).

For now I would advice to not really use the rear brake too much as it doesn't do that much on these bikes( on some the rear brake helps a lot: 500cc gp bikes for example because they have low engine brake). Go quickly down the gears when braking or at least play around with the speed of dropping gears so that you find the most "stable" pattern. Don't be afraid to be hard on the front brake untill you either lose the front or go over the bars. After a while you'll get to know the sweet spot of braking. Ofcourse if you want to go fast you need to have some sort of braking markers on the track, so that you can consistently brake late.

Note: I don't have a gradual rear brake. I just have a button I tap and I added a lot of smoothness in the settings to that button so that it comes more gradually.

Cheers on answer, I have my rear brake on right thumb-stick down, the clutch is same stick on up, and then rider lean is left and right but that's automatic and i never bother with it.  I'll look into downloading and checking out your replay maybe i get a better understanding of where to brake and when to turn.

Best I could do was a 1'41, and that's in third person, I couldn't crack 1'45 in cockpit.  Whoever is going faster is clearly hacking and should be eliminated promptly.  Seriously though, HOW?? :P

Haha, keep practicing. I suggest to try the bmw s1000rr because to me it feels fairly easy ride and it is also the fastest. I would be glad to help and give some tips but I need to know / see what you are doing "wrong" before I can help :p

Cheers, I'll give it a shot later today after work for sure.  Do we just run them on the server and that's it or do we have to save the replays?

Cheers.

Are there any prizes for slowest?  I just might give it a shot!  8)

Quote from: poumpouny on December 05, 2017, 03:45:54 PMLuponius > no, because your real handle bar and the virtual handle bar are countersteering the same angle so when it wooble it match exactly the virtual handle bar (in the limit of your ffb force)

Ah that's pretty cool, I might look around for something that would feel ok playing like that, it's really interesting!

Bug Reports / Re: Anti wheeling makes wobbles

One question on direct steer however, having your handlebars in place while a wobble starts, wouldn't they be inputting the opposite of what the bike bars are doing when slapping side to side?

Or do your controls wobble along with it? How/if steering damping is available does this affect anything if at all?

Bug Reports / Re: Game SETTINGS
December 04, 2017, 01:58:53 PM
Can confirm this issue is still present, I even had the problem when on the main menu.  Worked before but didn't after I tried altering it on track, and couldn't alter it in main menu later, even after restarting the game a few times.  Can always change directly from config, but that's pretty annoying.

Bug Reports / Delayed core.exe crash for my mate
December 04, 2017, 01:55:55 PM
He uses the demo, pops in to play, gets out of the pits and after a few attempts to cover some distance the game cores out.  I suggested adding additional rules for virus scanner exclusions and doing the LAA hack, any other thoughts on this?  Hopefully those two fix it but if not what other solutions are there?
