One man band effort: http://store.steampowered.com/app/668170/Incline/

Congratulations to the developer, regardless...
Not the best graphics, but he has published more than Black Delta, that probably has a thousand times the budget  ;D

Documentation / VR Support
August 28, 2017, 12:37:07 PM
When installing GP Bikes a desktop shortcut named "GP Bikes - VR" should be created.
It launches GPB with the "-vr" command line switch, that enables VR support.

If both a Rift and a Vive are installed on the same PC, it's possible to force Oculus using the "-vro" switch, and SteamVR using "-vrs".

In GP Bikes -> Settings -> Input3 it's possible to set the control to reset the VR camera tracking. The default key is F8. It resets the position and rotation of the user interface virtual screen, too.

It is possible to change the Oculus pixel density, creating a text file called oculus.ini in the GPB installation folder and adding the following lines:
[render]
pixel_density=1.5

By default, the rendering of both eyes is mirrored to the GPB window.
It is possible to change the mirroring setting creating a text file called oculus.ini or openvr.ini in the GPB installation folder and adding the following lines:
[mirror]
eye = 2
The possible values are:
-1: mirroring disabled
0: left eye
1: right eye
2: both eyes

On Oculus only, it is also possible to add, under the "mirror" section
post = 1
to show the barrel distorted render in the desktop window.

For SteamVR only, it is possible to add to the openvr.ini file
[ipd]
scale = 0.9
to modify the IPD, changing the world scale.

Note: If the Windows Taskbar overlaps the GPB window preventing the cursor from reaching the bottom of the user interface, please try right clicking on the shortcut icon and, in the Properties, selecting Run Maximized.


Known Bugs
- HTC Vive ( SteamVR ): transparent asphalt in the user interface

Bikes / IK Links Debug Mode

Inverse kinematic is used to animate the chain, to link the rider hands to the handlebars, to link the boots to the pegs and to prevent the knees from sinking into the ground.

To show the link points ( cyan ) and the targets ( magenta ), edit the file global.ini ( by default generated in "My Documents"/PiBoSo/GP Bikes/ ) and add:
[debug]
links = 1

Tracks / Default Groove
November 23, 2016, 01:45:42 PM
There is a little feature that could be useful.

1) Open wrs.ini and add the following lines ( or just the second if the "edit" section already exists )

[edit]
groove=1

2) Drive several laps in testing mode on a track to create the groove ( it's possible to use groove_multiplier to generate it faster )
3) Press left ctrl + g: a file named temp.grv will be saved in the World Racing Series installation folder
4) Rename temp.grv to track_id.grv ( for example: victoria.grv ) and move it to the proper track folder, with the matching TRP file
5) World Racing Series should automatically read this grv file at track load time
