Quote from: h106frp on June 10, 2020, 05:29:21 PMSort of a good question... I would imagine that collisions are generated at the race server and fed back to the clients - if that is the case then it would be the race servers .lyt that is enforced no matter what .lyt the clients employ (this would be the best generally for anti-cheating). As the 'barrier' would be invisible in-game it really should not matter whether the clients have it in their graphical information.

I think it is generally understood that exiting in the wrong direction is not an innocent mistake and just an attempt to get an extra flying lap out of the qualifying tyres and creates chaos in the pitlane and at the pit in entry point.

The do not touch the white lines thing in MGPXX is an absolute enjoyment killer - hate it to the point of throwing the controller through the screen because its so badly implemented and hit and miss as to when it will penalise. End up spending the entire lap staring at the white lines and its not easy to judge to the (stupidlevel of) accuracy required in first person view.Even the suggested best line often causes you to clip the unseen boundary - usual milestone crap used to cover for the useless off track grip failings as going off the asphalt should create a big enough penalty in itself if the tyre grip modelling worked at all.
