    A new EARLY ACCESS build of AMS (v.0.8.6r) has been deployed now on Steam.

    Below are the release notes & main changelog (please make sure to check for some important information regarding the new build):

    V0.8.6r
    • Improved support for Windows User Account Control - now all user-generated files should be stored in MyDocs\Automobilista folder. Users with UAC on will be prompted to create a new profile (if you disable UAC or run as admin however it will still use game folder)
    • Added option to select PLAYER LEVEL after new profile creation (can be changed later from the difficulty menu) - CASUAL / ADVANCED / HARDCORE: depending on level selected, the default settings will be customized accordingly for various Difficulty / Controls / Display options
    • Several new UI improvements & adjustments + version number added to bottom right corner of main menu
    • Further adjusted tire scrub volume calculation, default settings & added Tire Volume Slider to the AUDIO menu
    • Some DynHUD improvements for better stability (& pedal cursors now optional from the editor)
    • Fixed bug with vehicle labels not working
    • Fixed bug with FFB level selection sometimes not sticking
    • Added a FFB Reset function whenever a session is (re)started (to try prevent issues with users occasionally losing FFB)
    • Implemented advanced transmission code for all cars with dog-type sequential boxes (Marcas, SuperV8, MR18, Lancer RS, Shifter and Superkart) now featuring ignition cut-off (AKA powershift) in upshifts; if engine / drivetrain RPM mismatch is too great, gear change is not accepted
    • Downshift protection also added to prevent engine over-revving in semi-auto boxes;
    • Added option for manual gear shift override in cars with autoshift electronic aids (such as F-V10 & Camaro SS)
    • Adjusted flatspotting range (slightly more sensitive than previous version)
    • Fixed bug with Mini autoshift driving aid not working correctly
    • Removed launch control being left mistakenly enabled in F3 & Supertruck
    • Tweaked fast line at chicane in second half of lap of Salvador to minimize cars rolling
    • Fixed foggy cockpit windshield in Lancer RS
    • Fixed bug with Renault Fluence LOD in night lighting
    • Various AI adjustments to generally improve their behavior & performance
    • Added a few missing helmet skins + corrected alpha channels for another lot of them
    • Fixed digital LCDs not working in Indian Momentum F-Extreme cars

    A hotfix came up a couple of hours after initial release to fix a couple of errors (wrong AppID for the matchmaker & Supertruck AI going bonkers on ramps). Please restart Steam to update to get these fixes if you had updated earlier.


    Please keep the discussions & questions pertinent to the new build and the list above here.

    If you have a bug to report please use the bug report thread. (make sure o check the opening post).

    Downshift protection! Now that is cool! Wonder if it will be possible to add it to 3rd party mods

    Thanks for v0.8.6r update, Renata and Reiza team.
    And thanks for the bug fix of Renault Fluence LOD in night lighting.
    Now, I can enjoy the racing with Marcas Renault in the night without problem. :)
    Only the visitors to this forum can watch it though I've added "[Solved]" tag to the title of my YouTube video on bug report forum.
    Thanks again! :)

    A hotfix just came up to fix a couple of errors (wrong AppID for the matchmaker & Supertruck AI going bonkers on ramps). Please restart Steam to update.

    Just a reminder also on the latter, make sure to always use standing starts with Supertruck races (they´re not designed to work with rolling starts).

    After this update if I exit Automobilista & try to go back in Steam gives me an "App already running" message. I then try to shut Steam down & it says "Waiting on Automobilista to close" which it won't. I have to force close Steam every time now & restart it to be able to load the sim.

    Yes but,

    Start AMS and create profile with the same name you had before update
    copy the "old" files over the new ones and everything is there again

    Why is the Config folder in My Documents now? It wasn't there before, and was fine where it was. It's messing up my layout. I'd like the ability to change where that folder goes, because right now, I can't. Call me OCD, but I prefer to keep things the way I want them, and the Automobilista config folder isn't where I want it.

    Because we can write to My Documents all the time, and whilst you may not have had issues with writing to the game folder, it was a persistent issue and took up a lot of time for support.

    If you run the game as an admin user without UAC enabled the files still stay in the game folder though. And as a final backup, if you force the game to run as admin via the application properties it will also do that.
