Release Notes for 2016 Season 4 Patch 2 [2016.09.16.01]

CHANGE LOG:

Simulator

– Power saving and screen savers are now turned off when the Sim launches.

Connection

– Fixed a bug that would cause your Options/Graphics/Max cars selection to be sent only to the first server to which you connect while remaining in the simulation. If you registered for a Race session far enough ahead of time, and joined the pre-race Open Practice, the Open Practice server would have been told of your selection. But when you clicked on the [Race!] button inside the simulation to transition to the Race session, the Race server would not be told of your selection, and would instead use the default, maximum value.

Rendering

– Windshield reflections have been disabled at night tracks.

– Fixed an issue where sometimes partially invisible cars would be present with large fields at Le Mans.

– All floating point exceptions (reporting in .logs and/or crashing out) in the FG and BG have been disabled if the SIM is running on Wine (Mac/Linux).

Options

– Fixed a misspelling in the help text for the Far Terrain setting on the Options screen.

Animation

– Fixed an issue where the lollipop guy would sometimes appear in a T-pose.

– Tire warmers are now used for this car. Temperature is set to what we would see with blankets or an oven, as used on GT3 cars.
