rFactor 2 – Build 228 Released
Image Space Incorporated has released the newest build of their rFactor 2 simulation.
The build comes with plenty of fixes and improvements as listed below, it does not include any of the new content such as Silverstone though.
ISI is asking everyone to use the title’s auto-updater to download the new version to give their system a stress test!
Update 15 (Build 228) Changelog (June 10, 2013):
Fixed an error with frame buffer textures in a few cases
Fixed a problem with HDR bloom when running multiview
Did some adjustment of multiview HDR processing
Added detail levels to env and road reflection options
Fixed bug where the audio mixer treats the player as an opponent when going under AI control.
For onboard cams, setting Flags2 to 1 will make them use external rather than internal sounds.
Attempt to correct controller IDs if they get switched around when plugging in other input devices like joysticks.
More tidying up of multiview replay
UI / HUD / Options:
Clearing sidebars from replay gizmo when bouncing back to main monitor from large replay window in multiplayer
MODDING / PUBLIC DEV
Fixed a crash in ModMgr when switching from detailed to simple view
Fix up some minor UI problems in MAS2
Added ability to place listeners for ambient sounds using the editor.
Added ability to see the path the AI last took in AIW editor show/hide menu
Fixed an issue in ModMgr where an install to a new directory would use last known working and packages folders – new installs will now use new working and packages folders until modified by user.
Added menu option to cancel recording paths in AIW editor and to trigger path recording with “External Signal Left” mappable input.
BUG FIXES / OPTIMIZATIONS:
Fixed a bug when toggling FXAA from in game where the shaders were not being recompiled properly
Fixed alt-tab crash in MP caused by multiple rearview inits
Demo set as PREFERRED_RFM
Fixed recently introduced bug where clients would sometimes halt when another client exited the race.
Fix skins on dedicated server replays, not yet sure if this helps with skins on client replays.
Fixed “Get Mod” password entry box to send player to the right screen when “Enter” key is used to progress forward
Fixed a bug with incorrect billboard rotation when wind/crown motion deactivated
When mapping controls to a controller axis, fixed a minor problem where the axis settings could get stuck in a bad configuration (more specifically, while we tried to detect whether you were trying to use a half axis or a full axis).
Fixed bug where sometimes AI would get stuck in an extremely slow state.
Closed potential slowdown loop when yellow flag is thrown and freezing running order for AIs.
Fixed an alt-tab crash specific to MP only
Added send rate control to built in HTTP server
Added server & admin commands “/dq” and “/undq” to disqualify and re-qualify drivers.
Remove exited clients’ cars if restarting weekend.
Added basic race rejoin after disconnect, which must be enabled on the server to work (with the multiplayer.ini setting “Allow Race Rejoin”). Currently you just get a new car in the garage.
