    Do you have a Picture or something else, with the Info about the Detection Point(s) and the Length of the DRS Zone(s), that you want to have?

    Unfortunately I haven't.
    I thought that everything is included in a DLC Track.

    Imola is NOT officially an S397 track. It was produced by Reiza and sold via rF2. Reiza is in the process of updating the tracks, but we do not know if they are only updating graphics or if they are including other improvements as well.(and we do not know when the process will be completed)
    S397 has NO ability to alter other company's products. It is completely up to Reiza to make any changes or improvements.

    @ennimann I probably misunderstood you.
    I thought that you wanted to add these Entries, because the Track has no DRS Zones defined.

    And @Flipo are you sure that these Values are for Imola 2018 and match the real Zone?
    It looks a bit wrong, because i mean that the Zone starts after the Start/Finish Line.

    Hi,
    since we are on topic of changing DRS zones , can someone tell me how to make DRS available on whole track ?

    Something like the below should work, to get DRS being available on the whole Track in all Sessions, after you've crossed the Start/Finish Line the first Time.
    Replace LAPLENGTH with the Lap Length in Meters.

    GDB Entry:

    RearFlapWetTreshold=0.5
    RearFlapZoneSessions=31
    RearFlapZone
    {
    MinimumCrossings=0
    TimeThreshold=1800.0
    DetectionLapDist=0.001
    ActivationLapDist=0.0
    DeactivationLapDist=LAPLENGTH
    }

    EDIT I forgot: you can take the Lap Length from the AIW File Value lap_length=.

    This year the DRS Detection zone 1, is a little further back, but that's how I have it in Imola 2018.

    I did find a similar Picture (below), that was labeled as from 2018.
    But since its the Internet..... ;)
    So i did ask, if you are sure about the 2018.

    @ennimann Sometimes it can happen that the rfcmp can not be packaged anymore, when the cmpinfo.dat File did have too many Entries.
    At least that was the Case in the Past and i don't know if it was fixed already.
    So you can try to close the MAS2 Tool, backup your existing cmpinfo.dat and cmpinfo_bak.dat Files and start the Tool again, to get fresh empty Files.
    Maybe that solves the Problem already.

    Hi,
    we recently talked about enabling DRS everywhere in every session, and i did follow your advice but it didn't work.
    so i tested it out on official monaco (Circuit dAzur) and i edited "layoutCircuitdAzur.mas" file via MAS2 tool and this is what my gdb files looks like >>
    Capture.JPG

    So after this i converted all these extracted files from " layoutCircuitdAzur.mas " back to mas file
    first i tried to replace layoutCircuitdAzur.mas but that didn't work
    THEN i kept both of them and still didn't work.

    2 things i did not find in gdb of circuit dAzur (monaco)

    1. these following line of code >>

    RearFlapWetTreshold=0.5
    RearFlapZoneSessions=31

    2. Lap Length from the AIW File , so i put very high value for DeactivationLapDist so that there is NO end of zone.


    P.S : i wanted to start PM over this but i couldn't upload the image so here we are, sorry for derailing topic a bit OP

    @Simulation_Player I didn't try it out before i posted it. :)
    Is that the Track for that you want to have it?

    The 2 missing Lines are used for Wet Track and to deactivate/activate the DRS Use in specific Sessions.

    Maybe the Problem is the edited MAS File.
    The Track is DLC and if you have set "Auto Update", the edited MAS File will be overwritten with the original one when you start the Game.
    It's better to create an Update rfcmp.

    If you want, i can try it out.

    I actually want to do this with all other tracks i have, monaco is the first one im testing this on.
    yes i have disabled the auto update and im in offline mode.
    you can try it out for sure but if possible can you show me how to make it on my own, so i can do it for myself in future.

    Sorry, maybe I misunderstood what you were asking, the parameters I have set are the DRS zone of Imola 2023, which I have modified for the Imola_2018 circuit for our championship.

    @Simulation_Player
    If you have Auto Update deactivated and are in Offline Mode, it should work with edited MAS Files, so that's OK then.
    I've tested it now and the Problem is, that a too short Distance between the Detection and the Activation Point doesn't work.
    Seems as if the Game can not detect it.
    Use the follwing Entries and try it out again.

    RearFlapWetTreshold=0.5
    RearFlapZoneSessions=31

    RearFlapZone
    {
    MinimumCrossings=0
    TimeThreshold=1800.0
    DetectionLapDist=0.0
    ActivationLapDist=5.0
    DeactivationLapDist=2618.344971
    }


    DeactivationLapDist is taken from the Track AIW (i did use Silverstone National for Testing), but also 100000 should work.
    And think at: when you have a long Straight, where the Start/Finish Line is at its Beginning, you have to again activate the DRS, after you've crossed the Start/Finish Line, even if you had it activated before the Start/Finsih Line already.

    @Flipo I also misunderstood this Request.
    I thought, that he wanted to have the real DRS Zones of 2018. :)

    @redapg Hi, i tried out new settings and double checked auto updates settings ..unfortunately still not working.
    maybe paid dlc require different approach ?

    I've tested with another Track in DevMode and i see no Reason, why it should not work with DLC Tracks too.
    I will create an Update rfcmp for Cote de Azur and upload it here.
