    You don‘t have to opt in or out of anything. Beta and release versions can independently be installed. Check your Steam library :)

    @Renato Simioni any rough estimate when that ffb post will come along? Will it include some info on the ffb custom file settings?

    depends of what he was definitelly refering to.
    In AMS Beta, you could also enter a additional beta. This was beta 2 for DD wheel users. If he meant that, then YES, opt out or you'll stay endless in beta 2.
    Unfortunatelly his question was not precise enough for giving the 100% right answer.

    Racing Sims are like food - it's a lot about preferences rather than the craft.
    And content has always been Reiza's biggest advantage and biggest downside.
    If you're open to series and tracks you have never heard of, then Reiza delivers greatly.
    If you're the generic public lobby racer then you're missing GT3, Monza and Spa.

    But of course Reiza's biggest advantage in regards to Early Access is that all that content has already been there, it just needed to be updated.

    Reiza should expect another surge of purchases, starting April 9th. That's when the Wu Flu checks start being deposited into bank accounts in America.

    I think part of the problem is that those who purchased the EA release don't have access to the beta forum so have no idea whether the things they're complaining about are being worked on. Surely one of the reasons behind EA is to put the game out there and let as many people as possible try it and comment on it - good or bad. There's no point people replying to posts saying "it's still EA" if we have no way of knowing if a particular feature of the game is finished or not.

    Game feels great in the hand (and under foot!) for me. Few things that need sorting badly though, the most important being the contact online. People are crashing left right and centre, but not actually hitting eachother. That’s enough to put people off of playing it and not returning to it! I get it’s early, but that needs to be ironed out. Had so many great races ruined where I smash into someone but actually, I was only ever “close” to them.
    Also.... will some sort of licensing system be introduced to online multiplayer? The licensing system on PC2 was great and really added more depth to the experience. Also, for VR users, please, let us be able to adjust the mirror angles, as at the moment I can’t see anything but the stands in them

    Just spent my first few hours with the game

    Wheel and Pedals were tough to set up
    F3 car brakes lock up far too easily as discussed elsewhere
    Got locked out of watching a race in spectator mode and had to quit/rejoin
    Game crashed twice (weird as it went from smooth frames to crashed with no warning)

    I'm not about to start writing negative reviews. It would be nice to see a list of known bugs that are being worked on. Really looking forward to the braking hotfix and the FFB settings.

    £25, I'm happy to buy in now, I spent £13 on a takeaway tonight, it's all about perspective.

    I just test the Ultima GTR, the braking is better, I like this wild car !
    Just to notice: when monitoring the race, I can switch beetween cars except the third one.

    Was hoping to see the mid 1970s F1 cars that were in AMS. Not a big deal.

    Too early for much else.

    Keep well all.

    GENERAL

    • Adjusted rain spray parameters - slightly longer draw distance & slower decay
    • Raised default Camera World Movement from 50 to 75, reduced G Force Effect from 50 to 25 (resulting in less default cockpit camera movement)

    UI

    • Added game version number to main menu screen
    • Desaturated Championship & Time Trial panels in Main Menu to better illustrate current unavailability

    PHYSICS & AI

    • Slightly adjusted tyre tread physics for F-Classic Gens 2&3, SuperV8, MIT Lancer, F-Vee, Opala, Ultima GTR, Copa Truck, Caterhams, karts
    • Slightly reduced pneumatic trail for slick tyres & adjusted max steering rack forces to suit (results in slightly more consistent FFB)
    • Fixed error in suspension rates of SuperV8, Sprint Race which could lead to excessive bouncing midcorner and other handling woes
    • Adjusted differential locks for all Caterham models with LSD
    • Adjusted brake response curve & reduced default brake pressure to 90% for all cars
    • Fixed error in Ultima GTR Race rear brakes which would cause it to lock rear wheels easily

    • Fixed Chevette 5th gear ratio


    VEHICLES

    • Caterham 620R: Updated several liveries (adding some metallic variations)
    • Formula Vintage: Added missing lower LOD models (which could cause cars to disappear in lower car detail settings)


    TRACKS

    1. Jerez: Complementary art pass & fixes
    2. Snetterton: Fixed curbs & added 3D marbles to both layouts



    To users still struglling with brake sensitivity, please make sure to callibrate your controller to try ensure the full range is being correctly used.

    Just tested after the update. Calibrated my pedals (CSPv3) again and all the pedals are still super sensitive. It feels like all the range is in first 20-30% on all pedals. Throttle is super sensitive and brakes lock up at 30% of pedal travel max. Also clutch bite point is off because I miss shifts all the time, something that doesn't happen on other sims.

    On calibration window the range looks normal but in game it's really not.

    Don't know if this will help anyone - but I just got AMS2 updated to 8.0.1 and thought I'd try re-calibrating the pedals. Now, here's the strange bit - on my first attempt at pushing down on any pedal I'd get half way down and the bar would jump from 50% to 100% almost straight away. So I did this with all the pedals and then clicked on save. Then I thought about trying to recalibrate again and then the pedals properly went from 1-100% fully depressed ... Sweet!!

    The brakes/accelerator now work fantastic.
    I'm using t3pa-pro pedals t300rs wheel

    If this update addresses the most commonly reported issues how come there is no fix for the sound issues when using headphones? That makes some cars unplayable.
