Image Space Incorporated has released a new build of their rFactor 2 simulation that is currently in open beta testing.
There’s no changelog for the new version available as of yet, ISI explained that lots of bugs have been fixed and the code groundwork for the new Formula Two car has been added.
The changelog will be added as soon as it’s available.
Update: Changelog added.
Added some HDR debug
made spin correction not work while on pitspot.
working turbo code minus intercooler (but we’re ignoring the decreased charge density until that’s in)
for turbos, made configurable the location of boost pressure measurement for wastegate purposes
fixed intake manifold pressure calc for turbos
fixed AI miscalculating fuel needs for fuel multiplier values greater than 1
UI / HUD:
made multiplayer list “event name” field now “venue name, event name”
virtual mirrors (and toggling them) now work the same for cockpit and TV cockpit
added 2 pairs of x,y offsets to mouseless scroll boxes that can define the position of the specific image within the scrollbox item. (the image used to always be placed at 0,0 and extend to the full extent of the scrollbox item)
increased multiplayer game list buffer & standardized internal buffers for safer future upgrade
fixed keyboard handling in UI editor (we weren’t handling Windows messages in a special tight loop)
made gamedatabase switches more robust.
fixed net lag issue (which was caused by extra data being sent without regard to appropriate bandwidth limit)
fixed skinning bug with non-retail showrooms
removed redundant gdb value “GrandPrixName”…since it was always identical to “EventName”.
fixed track selection gizmos from stocking multiple copies of the same event.
fixed a bug where main page veh, rfm, or track icon would not show up because it was the wrong format.
Added sort field for sorting by location to NetCommUtil
made the text color of the racegrid participants customizable instead of hard-coded.
To get access to the the beta, a full retail purchase of rFactor 2 is required. rFactor 2 sells for $43.99, including 18 months of online account membership instead of the 12 months buyers of the final version will receive.[boxdownload]Download Build 107 Full Installer Here[/boxdownload] [boxdownload]Download Build 101 Update (Requires Build 85) Here[/boxdownload]
