    READ THIS:
    You must update all the ISI mods to their latest version for this build to function. The ISI mods will also not work correctly in the old build. EVERYTHING needs to be up-to-date.

    some minor tweaks to AI stalking behavior.
    AI more likely to stay on throttle when along side a car they are trying to pass.

    fixed bug where sometime AI, at start of formation to standing start, immediately tries to park.
    better handling of grip lose around fast corners
    AIs will turn on and off rear flaps as required.
    Tried to ease up on the throttle cuts caused by tires bouncing off the ground for a tick while otherwise being in control

    LED and HUD support for DRS status
    changed scaling scrollbox gizmos (rfm, veh, track, hud, showroom & ui) so that they can accept textures other than 1024x1024 uncompressed textures.

    Everything went fine here. I first updated the game. Then udated the FR, the Meganes, the GTWEC and finished with the install of the Formula masters new mod. I made a few laps with the Formula Masters and i liked it a lot. Played with the 370Z too. I'm pretty happy with the update for now and no problems so far. I'll give it some more tests later for sure.

    All went well here.

    Pro's:
    - better performance
    - more high-res graphics on cars AND tracks
    - new physics
    - new fr3.5 outside sounds
    - reflections
    - small new textures everywhere (windshields, headlights, cockpits)
    - tweaked mirage effect
    - tweaked heat haze

    cons:
    - none for now. All works. Best Build/Build progress so far.

    (Edit: Shadows still disappear in a distant view (trackside) ... not as bad as before I think.)

    THANK YOU ISI!

    Http will come soon, we re waiting for the first wave of downloaders which could be handled better by torrent.
    After that wave there will be several ways to grab the update.

    HTTP will be here tomorrow. The auto updater is changed (as those who have updated can see), which is why we haven't stress tested it tonight by releasing there yet.

    All installs went well for me, I much prefer the HDR now so using it :) one thing I have noticed not sure if bug or not but when driving on track I tried all views when using the TV cockpit view it now looks like there is a shield in front of you looking a bit hazy and every so often it disappears, overall Im happy and the new F1 masters I quite like well done ISI :) :)

    The log says everything about this "patch".

    I'm disappointed to say the least from what I've just seen and tested. New Tracks??? i`m to old for this??

    If i see more in a few hours if i`m rested??? I hope so...

    If you did a clean install, did you remember to re-make any changes you made? Such as the skip updates 'hack' for older steering wheels, etc?
