    Dear Reiza,

    Happy Holidays!

    I am writing on behalf of your biggest FANS in China—HiPole.com which is the most popular SimRacing league in China and maybe the ONLY one still using Automobilista as main simracing title on almost every weekend for multiple races.

    One of our crown races names HEC, a.k.a HiPole Endurance Championships have been running for 4 years and 4 seasons, becoming the most amazing race competition here for our simracing fans. Latest 2019 season just had its 1st run on Dec 22, 2018 where we combined AJR and Boxer as a bundle to run against Interlagos.

    Over 46 people signed up for the race, and attended it. Everything goes well during daily practice. But in the gaming day, 46 racers joined the server together, game kept crashing after Practice session, qualification and before warmup (as the server roles over), this kicks someone off the server and we had to go over everything. However, people got randomly kicks out / cashes out once current session jumps to next... As result, 38 out of 46 racers finally got in the RACE session, but 10 out of 38 racers crashed out during RACE.

    Our race report can be found here: HiGarage - HiPole数据中心 - 嗨跑赛车 - 模拟赛车数据中心

    By further investigating that after the race, we though it might caused by too many individuals hitting the memory of a 32 bit program. With so many cars, two different types of cars and customized skins that hits limit pretty quick. We also have advised to turn opponents details to Low before race but still, kicks out takes place quick random.

    Base on that we’re looking forward to any workaround you may have, and furthermore we’d like to understand a little bit more about Reiza Studio’s roadmap in 2019, any rumors about AMS2, will it be rf2 physics engine, etc. Reason why asking that is we truly love your SimRacing titles, you have been with us for quite long since GSC to AMS and we wish to keep it with you guys growing together.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon. Cheers~

    Regards,
    HiPole.com

    Hello there,,thank you for nice wishes.

    First let's clear out what was happening:

    During session changes, some people got "connection lost" (what you say kick from server)

    During race, some people got CTD - Crash To Desktop (what you describe as 'crashed out')?

    I would wild suggest you try and increase on server, max data per client value, for a start.

    Yes, for a 40+ gamers online race, some people got "connection lost" during session changes, and someone got CTD during race.

    We held 200+ automobilista races before, all goes well. This is the first 40+ gamers races then we met the issue above... and we used the "AMS Dedicated - 40 player" for this event.

    Looking forward to your help. Thanks
