Fixed critical issue where severe problems would occur when a player left or disconnected during multiplayer race. We apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused you and thank you for your patience.
Known issue: If a player leaves in race 1, other players will end up in black screen after session switch into race 2. We are investigating the problem but in the meantime we suggest you avoid multi format races if possible.
Game: - Reworked the Yellow Flag code logic to address all cases where penalties would wrongfully be handed out. - Fixed various issues with Data Displays - Fixed a crash occurring on some machines with specific sound systems. As a result, all sound profiles are now listed in the Sound Settings menu instead of attempting to auto-detect. - Fixed an issue where the player could get stuck when accessing the - - Timing screen right at the moment the qualifying session ends and game switches to race session. - Fixed an issue with external links to auto-start the game and join a specific multiplayer server when the livery ID wasn’t passed in the link. - Fixed an issue where “Session Freeze” setting wasn’t passed to the dedicated server. - Fixed a case where certain track cuts would wrongfully result in instantaneous DQ for the player (ie: cutting T1 of Anderstorp onto the pitlane exit path) - Fixed an issue where dedicated server could sometimes remain stuck in race session - Fixed an issue where DNF players could sometimes show up in the race results .json file with their logged laps listed twice.
VR: - Brought back the possibility to set the resolution using a startup argument. - Made it so that the SteamVR Supersampling setting will be used for the resolution only if the user doesn't use a startup argument for setting the resolution.
Sounds, Cameras, Physics & AI: - Updated the Audi TT cup handling after feedback from Philip Ellis. More biting in the front at turn in, and looser rear under braking. - Fixed a glitch where code would report some RPM when ignition was on but engine wasn’t running. - Fixed an issue where code would briefly lock up all four wheels in certain cars when control is handed from AI to player (ie: rolling & leaderboard starts)
