How are you liking your new gpu Gerry? Have you monitored how hot your gpu runs while playing rf2? My Asus Strix gtx 1080 reaches 60-64 celsius. Fans are a bit noisier than with gtx 970. And I have suffered some coil whine while playing a manager game (probably high fps as I even had that with gtx 970 in rf2 menus)

No chance to try the updated game. I've been getting pounder at work so free time has been hrd to come by recently.I'm hoping over the next few days to get some laps in. Both in PC2 and rF2 FE content.

Has anybody had time to test the new update? First impressions? btw, does the update overwrite jack spades ffb file?

Yep def allot smoother
Jacks ffb were kept you can even see which file you are using in in car telemetry hud. file name written below the FFB meters in hud too :)
FFB feels allot better too tried radical RX turbo (thats fun), Skyline R32, few GT3, LMP 1 and 2 And GTE all felt v good :)

Online wise my server works well will try few others than mine today :)
Still get 4th Class on multi but not a deal breaker is WRX normally so be dumb to choose it with LMP1 or and GT3 And GTE get left behind lol

Single class server is easy to do will un password it and open up to public and see how it goes for few evenings see how server is.

All in all very good Matt :)

Ai seem to be allot better set it at 80 last night was vey good just moved it to 85 will try again generally Ai gone after first track rotate but quite like them sometimes when i am on it by myself :)

I really like it sure it will be popular and have some very good racing :)

Noticed my rating changed from F to E after being on with Scott and Rick so using our server between us will get our rating up too need to be more that 1 person on server so wont work with just Ai :)

Be fine to try a Race when were all avaiable

also Tracks list people of which tracks people like to race may start a Thread for what tracks people want to see on it
 Then i can rotate those tracks :)

 I didn"t notice any improvement in FFB,I think it"s already pretty good with the Jack files and then ofcourse you have to tweak them in game also to how strong you want the forces.I noticed when me and Rick were on Simon"s server that Rick was warping some.I know Simon has a really good internet connection so might have just been on RickS end.I love Pcars 2 when your just racing against the AI,game looks amazing and feels pretty good too.I know everyone has a difference of opinon on Physics,I had to try and take grip away from the car because it"s too planted for me.We will have to try it with more people to know how the multiplayer is but it could be fun to run a mini series if enough people have it or plane to buy it soon.Saw Steam selling it for 35.00 the other day,definately well worth it.

Hi Matt,
My 1080 does seem to run hotter than my 970 did.  I haven't monitored the card since I first installed it and was bench marking while trying to overclock.
The fans on my 970 were really loud when they ramped up to full speed.  I can hardly hear the fans on the 1080, even at full speed!  I think they are better fans or something.
I'm not really sure what coil whine is.  I have seen it mentioned before in forums and reviews but I don't hear any whine noise that I can tell.
Over all I am really happy with the results, especially in RF2.  I have got that so that it looks a lot better and runs a lot better too.
I am still trying to get a better look in PC2.  The image seems to be really jagged and a lot of shimmering or weird flashing on surfaces a long distance away.
Like hay bails along a wall or the wall itself, trees, buildings.  Lamp posts look like barber poles with a shadow or something making a moving helix down the length of the poles.  I hope I can get it tweaked because it is somewhat distracting.
Gerry

Yep new games are demanding would not think you would need to overclock a 1080.
 
I have the server worked out and can setup multiclass races with weather aswell

means you have 4 weather slots per session so you can start a session sunny and its change to Rain then cloudy then sunny again :)

tried quickly last night 5 min session sunny to rain half way through the 5mins got few spots rain in few corners then more  and more till raining looks very cool.

So as far as races go server is ready to be used works perfect as far as I can tell all working as it should.

It is set so anyone with Password can create a game.

Is very easy too, go into your online browser in game create a session with all settings then when you hit start if you have put -selectds in run options it will take you back to browser window and you select the VRC server add put in password all you settings are applied to server v easy :)

So ready for some fun races :)

 Chad,You probably know this already but in case you don"t put this file in the Pcars 2 folder.access your Pcars 2 documents folder and drop it in there..I already renamed the file so it should over write your old one and then like Simon said adjust your wheel settings in the game.

Had an event, Turned into a test race to see if the server was working ok. 3 League admins and Gerry showed up. However, Gerry did not take part in the race.

I had problems even finding the server on the Online lobby list as did Matt for a time and Ignacio also messaged saying that he could not see the server. This is a problem clearly. I believe Simon reset the server to get it to show for us.

I am trying to install PC2 on the dedicated machine we use for the rF2 servers. It is a **** ton of Config files that I cant make heads or tails of and I am not sure it is worth the effort anyways. A simple GUI would have been nice. I shouldn't complain, rF2 was a pain in the ass to get up and running as well. But at least with rF2 I understand the setup procedures and have a system in place for changing the servers.

I think it is safe to say that PC2 is not yet ready for Prime Time as far as a viable dedicated league option. We will try again next week and see how things go.

Its not as bad as I initially feared it would be. The driving is passable and the graphics are ok in the Oculus Rift. We will try another race next Sunday.

I had to ditch the event.
I haven't played PC2 in a week or so and today I fire it up, get logged in to Simon's server and I go to practice and I got bumper view only.
Uhmm, have to check my options, not really sure where that is in the settings.  Finally figure it out and get a button mapped to cycle camera views.  Don't know why all of the sudden cockpit is not the default view?
Do a few laps and decide to change cars.  Come back in and do a few laps, all is well, running good.  Escape back to pit box and go to setup to make a few changes and the menu items are scrolling back and forth from low to highest settings... basically all spazzed out.  Can't make any more adjustments.  I have had this before but I can't remember how I fixed it..
Keep trying  ;D  cya next week!
Gerry

Oh yea, thanks Simon for the server
