    ‘Camera Shake’ - SOLVED!

    This! Now, I am not against some additional image stabilization (increasing the slider range to the right) as a kind of assist, but I think overall it's not terrible. You're mostly just in a rally car in argentina. (except you don't have the g forces to help your brain/body)

    Cars grip after patch?

    Extremely unlikely, the no grip bug seems to act like some object under it, the inverse would mean you are planted/weighed down to the ground, and most likely your acceleration would suffer from that as well. You'd be bottoming out and could visually see the car being low on the suspension. Also AFAIK the "no grip" bug seems to be mostly from a stage start, pretty extreme and intermittent/rare. So yeah, I doubt this one user has a super grip bug on almost all the time.

    People don't notice it because it literally doesn't exist. I believe 8s is VERY easy to shave off if you've only done a stage a few times and are not even close to the limits yet. I keep shaving off 5 to 10s per stage every time I have a cleaner run. It's quite literally called learning.

    Cars grip after patch?

    Well if you have a link to a video or reference where they (any reviewer/previewer) actually warned people about this stuff (always online SP, digital handbrake, wetness, nights, no hardcore dmg in career etc) before the release I'd be curious to see who was so prudent.
  5. Oh I guess you haven't seen Elfyn Evans in the cockpit 😄

    Unexpected Events ?

    True true, but once I had a car parked on the outside left hander of the village in Spain and I was just a bit fast in there, did a Rovenperra right into his arse. 😄 Love those kinds of things, which is why I would really enjoy more mechanical failures that act like real life.

    Cars grip after patch?

    They didn't focus on the problems enough and/or didn't make the points clear, they didn't appear to sink in with anyone before the release. Also for example the arcade damage in Career mode (especially not being able to use hardcore damage), all the night and wet stages, etc. were not mentioned. It's when you give an executive summary at the end of a review ( or conclusion) that you should bring the pros/cons of your findings to light in the correct balance. There were some insane things missed IMO. And while maybe they experienced them, they didn't raise them as real issues which IMO if they did their job 100% they should have. As for the best drivers, well maybe I don't even know, but I do know in terms of hot lapping the best guys are in the DR Discord chat and they also don't see a handling diff. I also agree that (for the most part) the fastest guys would notice a change. HOWEVER, there is a fact that the fastest drivers use totally different technique to the really slow drivers that complain about handling. So it might not even be noticed. (not trying to feed the conspiracy, just saying)

    Cars grip after patch?

    This is a funny post, those youtubers would detect small changes in handling? HAH ,. please. 😛 Im the one posting here actually reviewing data logs and telling you what I see. There is a difference between extroverted entertainers on YT and technical people, and also expert drivers in general. Just saying. Generally once people on YT start to get many thousands of views and followers they lose focus, and feed the crowd. Don't expect breakthroughs from them. Its like we got almost 0 warning from them when they previewed/reviewed the games early, utterly useless bunch of people when its time to voice something that isn't popular and against their market share.

    Mechanical Damage?

    It's not your settings. There are no further settings.
  10. bn880

    Cars grip after patch?

    I suspect the same thing, other than a few people who may have some linearity settings reset due to update. At least in my experience so far it's VERY clear nothing significant has changed, not significant enough at least to detect with detailed data logging 😛 I also tried a stage of Poland just now and again things appear the same, only improvements are where I am driving better due to time at the wheel.
  11. CSW 2.5 here, PC, no issues with wheel. I am using older drivers/firmware 2.91 but I doubt this makes a diff to be honest.

    Cars grip after patch?

    I did the USA event yesterday and compared logs for each stage, no change in R2 that I could see beyond speed difference between wet or dry stages. PC, fanatec wheel. Grip doesn't seem better, there are ways to be faster but it has nothing to do with changed source code just driving style. Will report on Poland when it comes up in my Career.

    Darkness and rain all the time

    Its definitely fixed for me, just did Spain, and no wet stages, i think 2 night. Starting New England, 2 wet and 3 night. You may need to start a new championship to see the results? (although it should be per event)

    So now this is about PS4 only? Interesting. 🙉

    Cars grip after patch?

    I hope you aren't referencing me, I totally objectively reviewed data for the R2 class to investigate. If it showed a difference I'd be the first one to say it.
  16. Yes his head is shaking a lot even over the smaller bumps, and it would show you a lot more if he did something like El Rodeo rough jumps if the camera was actually pointing internally at that time.

    Cars grip after patch?

    I don't have data for R5 in Poland so I cant compare. But I will compare with R2 later on.
  18. bn880

    Cars grip after patch?

    No, it isn't. There is no change in Spain, I just told you that there is no way to be faster (with the same driving style/skill). If i have to I can also reveiw detailed data logs for oversteer and compare, but the times specifically show it is the same and I feel it is the same (in Spain at least)

    How do engine upgrades work?

    It makes a significant difference, I've been watching acceleration deltas on a little telemetry and dash app that i made and between a stage 2 and 5 R2 FWD there is a huge difference in acceleration. At times you can be going 5-10km/h faster purely on accel.
  20. What does that even mean, what's wrong with you? Everything in a simulation is a camera, this one is attached to the drivers head/eyes. You are ignoring blatant facts and holes in your request. Explain to people perhaps in technical terms what you want to SEE in terms of your cockpit, and your outside world when the car is dipping back and forth by 30 degrees in Argentina. Maybe then I can take you seriously.
  21. That's fine and I agree with giving people options (excluding some e sports stuff to balance competition), but why make a dishonest poll? If he worded it like you did it would already be an improvement. And if you look back in the Bug report thread for 1.1 I was already contemplating if perhaps this wouldn't be a wise thing to do but he DOWN VOTED it . So whatever BLA BLA buddy. You don't have the facts and are having trouble processing what I am saying.
  22. bn880

    Cars grip after patch?

    So far I have tested Spain in the R2, same setup, and it is 100% identical on the live delta t and delta v and stage times reflect this. The only differences come when I make a mistake or take some turns better. So acceleration is 100% the same and grip appears to be the same as well. - R2, Spain, No change I probably won't have time to test gravel today, maybe tomorrow.

    Fanaleds working ?

    Haha, yep, I told you it's a great tool. 😄 I find it extremely helpful for debugging all kinds of issues as well.
  24. Well in a simulation every view is a camera view, metaphorically and literally. The developers HAVE ALREADY taken the shaking issue into account and that is why the head shaking called "Camera Shake" is compensating for the movement of the car with respect to the ground/horizon as to stabilize the image. This compensation is activated MOST at 100% (right on the slider not left). What you are ARGUING for is what the developers have already achieved with Camera Shake at 100%. What you WANT is PERFECT image stabilization with FAKE position of the cockpit on top of that. There I said it, now you have the truth

    Fanaleds working ?

    No no, I mean, find yourself any simple executable to run that doesnt eat virtually any resources (unfortunately notepad.exe doesn't seem to work in win10) and rename it. All that matters is that something named drt.exe is running. I use a wonderful utility called USBDeview that I renamed. 🙂 Regards
