Good evening, I wanted to warn you that there is no Snetterton track in the FTruck and Donnington is unable to get out of the pits, they are too low and the truck collides with the box ..
Automobilista has been updated to v1.5.3 - this is another hotfix to address some of the main remaining issues since the last release.
Added a hardcoded SteeringFFBMult value so a car will still have Force Feedback even if value is missing or zeroed in its physics file
Fixed fanatec DD base features initialization in compatibility mode
Fixed centering spring on game startup for Logitech wheels & small adjustments to rotation range method
Fixed Fanatec wheel rumble being turned off in wrong way
Donington: Switched off collision for pit building roof so Trucks won´t be stuck
Snetterton: Fixed crash in AMS Dedi loading Snetterton 300; Fixed filters so track will be available for FTruck series; Small graphical and object updates
I just want to report that the AMS freezing/delays and graphical bug (reported here) have not been resolved in the new update. The freezing got slightly worse actually:
loading track = 5 or 10s freeze (I forgot to time it). Freeze is from the time the loading bar is full until actually viewing the race event garage screen
pressing drive in time-trail mode = 25s freeze
pressing drive = 10s freeze
pressing cancel from on-track escape menu = 5s freeze
pressing exit to pits from on-track escape menu = 10s freeze (5s frozen image followed by 5s black screen, previous version of AMS was only 5s total freeze)
In the second last version (not the previous but the one before), I was able to get around this issue by either setting "Start Hardware Event Monitor" or "Use Additional Hardware Features" to 0. That workaround stopped working in the previous version and still does not work in this new version. I also set "Fanatec controllers special features update rate" to 0 but that doesn't fix the issue either. I tried all three settings at 0 at the same time.
I did a test and the Drift series still CTD
@Alex Couri what settings are you trying? I loaded the drift cars on a couple tracks in the beta and on a couple tracks in the public release and AMS never crashed for me.
As far as i know, the Drift Series crashes after a lap driven or so...
Ahh thanks. Me, the dummy, just randomly drove around since I have no idea how to drift. Yeah it crashes for me also at the end of the first points/timed lap.
I did check your post here Automobilista bug report thread (Please read the opening post)
So, this won't be solved by anything fanatec. It happens when ffb requests mutex on inputs thread (easy to see from trace file you attached in the link above). Really don't know why it occurs on your end. You can try this setting in controller.ini (can be either 1 or 0):
"Fixed Rate Inputs=0". (Disclaimer: didn't test effects of this locally).
Yep, expected, it wasn't mentioned in release log as fixed yet. It proves a bit of a challenge, as it happens only on main steam build. Feel free to give one more lap a go, with logging and post trace file here, as we added substantial logging to drift loop in order to hunt where it ctd's.
Will you release further hotfix? @Domagoj Lovric
Only for drift ctd fix.
Dont work my wheel Logitech DFP not working any more. Please Stop Updates!!!!
Meh, just backup your profile folder and create a new one...
Hi DaVeX. You're a backer and quite active on the forums so I'm assuming you're quite involved in the beta-builds. Do you know what happened between the previous AMS public build and the second previous one? Even after a brand new from scratch install I continue to have extraordinarily long freezes every time I load a track, go on track, and go back to pits ranging from 10s to an incredible 25s (TT mode) as of the second previous public AMS build. Before that, the freezes were A) only around 3s and more importantly B) could be resolved by setting either "Start Hardware Event Monitor" or "Use Additional Hardware Features" to 0.
I don't mind if the freezing isn't truly resolved but do you know why setting either "Start Hardware Event Monitor" or "Use Additional Hardware Features" to 0 isn't a workaround anymore? This means I have no wheel buttons available in AMS.
For each of my 3 wheels, I have a Fanatec LCD + 36 buttons (19 wheel face + 17 top of Fan Uni Hub) that I cannot use now. Basically I am now without an LCD, wheel buttons, and button box in AMS.
In the second previous AMS public build, apart from the freezes being much shorter, I could resolve the issue by either setting "Start Hardware Event Monitor" or "Use Additional Hardware Features" to 0. By disabling either of those features, the problem was resolved. Why doesn't that work anymore?
Can I just confirm with anyone else, I had a prolonged period away from gaming/AMS, but since coming back I have noticed from time to time that the AI do have that RF tendancy to lift off in a straight line. It for sure happens at least once (that I know of, and see) a race. Is this something that only I am experiencing, for the record, I have tried a new profile from scratch. I can try again, perhaps?
Anyone else has issues with the AMS config.exe file crashing every time? Iirc it has been happening since the last major update.
I was also getting AMS crashing straight to desktop. Wasn't always crashing straight to desktop sometimes it would crash after I loaded onto the track but the steps below fixed it.
The way I solved it was:
Turn off my Fanatec DD1
Load the game and go onto a track.
Turn on my Fanatec DD1.
Load back into game.
This would solve my issue. Strange I know.
I don't have a wheel. Game works fine, it's just the config.exe file that crashes.
Tanks Reiza your updates so easy my days.
