Known Issues

The track seems to suffer from some flickering at various points. I have done my best to reduce this however it seems to be a mixture of my graphics card and just how the original track was created. The original had even more flickering in my experience.

The tracks bumps work well with cars that have well setup suspensions. If your favourite mod does not work here, don't complain about the bumps; complain to the physics creator of the mod :)

This track has been optimized to work best under both Nvidia and ATI, as a result neither looks quite as good as they could if I created a completely different track for each. The track is very dependent on Anisotropic filtering, and I recommend you put this at the highest possible value. It should be possible to run this track without enabling LOD Bias Clamp in Nvidia.

The bridge beyond the final hairpin is slightly positioned wrong. This was only noticed after we uploaded all the final mirrors. This will be fixed in a future patch if the need arises.

There were a few extra objects we wanted to add however we ran out of time as for other reasons this track had to be released this weekend.

This is an amazing track, very nice looking, thanks

I have one small request, which I doubt can be answered, but I'll give it a try anyways. I was wondering if anyone had a setup suitable for 2007 Champ Cars? (I'm running a sim series and everyone wants to use this track) I know very little about how to set up the 2007 Champ Cars so they don't spin out all over the place.

Thank you Alex, I'm so glad this got fixed . If any other is interested, just add
Render=False right before MeshFile=ShadowObject04.gmt CollTarget=False..

Add render=false

To the instance instead of deleting it.

While running with headlights on I get a semi-transparent wall under the Lenovo bridge. I know I printed the screen in daylight, silly me. Running at night under the bridge seems like heaven is opening in front of the car, I for one, am not ready to go there yet [IMG][/IMG]


Well, I found the problematic wall and I managed to remove it by deleting this line in my .SCN file:
Instance=ShadowObject04
{
MeshFile=ShadowObject04.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False ShadowObject=(Dynamic, Solid, 256, 256)
}

But, what it does is delete the shadow under the bridge, and now I have none

are there any montreal tracks that have 43 pit stalls? like for nascar or rolex?

A big part of rfactor is league racing, which is available to all levels, however those who wish to play offline are supported at rfactor central. Your comment is not helpful

Why are you even wasting your time playing with AI? It is non-sense. Get yourself to some racing community and drive on some leagues.. that's what rFactor is all about, mate.
