I launched a dedi server in Beta5B and noticed the bike drifting/pulling of to the right or left when starting to roll.

I could not figure it out until i remembered (yes i'm slow) that i had set the weather conditions. Below is an example of what i did.
( i tested it it on NC - Mugello and NC Suzuka)

[weather]
realistic = 0; 0 or 1, if set to 1, following params are ignored
conditions = 1 ; 0 -> sunny, 1 -> cloudy, 2 -> rainy
temperature = 18 ; air temperature, celsius
wind_direction = 5 ; 0 -> n, 1 -> ne, 2 -> e, 3 -> se, 4 -> s, 5 -> sw, 6 -> w, 7 -> nw
wind_speed = 14 ; meters/second
track_conditions = 0 ; 0 -> dry, 1 -> wet

Now after this i did the same in a testing session on the same 2 tracks with the same result, bike drifting/pulling to right or left.
Very strange, i thought i set the windspeed wrong m/s versus km/h or something.
I checked the Dedicated documentation on the forum and it says wind_speed = 0 ; meters/second.

Now i checked the settings in game (when logged in as admin) and there you can also set the weather, and there the windspeed is shown as km/h.
Is this the problem?

PS
Setting track conditions through dedicated.ini server launch i can select track_conditions = 0 ; 0 -> dry, 1 -> wet
But when i do it in game as an admin i can set the track_conditions. in a X amount of %. Can this also be done in the dedicated.ini server lauch?

Wind speed is set in meters per second. When setting 14, you should see 50 km/h in the pits.

To have intermediate track conditions, use a value between 0 and 1. For example, 0.7 to have the track 70% wet.

I use this site for my server when setting the weather.

Under the options you can set things to GP Bikes standards as default plus majority of the tracks have hourly updates.
