    I ain't raging,just pointing out that when ever you three do post,it's negative or entitled drivel,going by you're posts you have nothing good to say about it,so I have to ask,do you actually still play the game or just troll the forums with negative posts.
    I get it you have been here long and hold no hope for this product,so why stay,there's plenty other games to play rather than knock this one,just leave it for dead if that's what you think

    Then ask a clear question, and I will try to help.
    I commented a request to release cars with open physics files. Files, that may contain sensitive data... As I said, there are other cars with unencrypted files, we have already provided, for study.
    If you want an easy access to sensitive data of a particular car, ask manufacturers and racing teams for that.

    Lack of a better documentation is something we will be looking but writing an in depth description about each of hundreds of parameters is not something you can do in one evening.

    Most of the not crypted files are using outdated and/or replaced parameter...

    Software documentation is an ongoing project, and is used as a tool to help the development itself, and not only the maintenance afterwards.

    I agree with you, writing documentation is not something you do in one evening.

    If ISI worked following widely used development standards, then it is an ongoing task since 2012, that only needs to be kept up to date by S397.

    Cheers.

    I'm very happy about how S397 was able to put up a rock solid structure to host this event. Consistent, reliable, stable, CTD free racing is the base upon which almost everything could be done.

    3 Flying Dutchmen, 2 Brits & a Finn. Seems to be a lot of talent on the Eastern side of the Atlantic, mayhaps there is a bigger pool of simracers in Europe/Scandinavia I suppose.

    The 6 drivers were split into 2 teams, each with 3 drivers. Another 10 or so teams, among them McLaren management, are taking part to keep the track from appearing totally empty and to provide a racing performance check. This 24 hr race is mostly about gauging teamwork, ability to work when tired, and not making mistakes under long term duress. With a total of 8 hrs racing for each WFG driver, they probably also want someone who can race at a consistent level, to not sag in performance, compared to their pros.

    I agree, having been fortunate enough to take part in one of the guest teams I have to admit that racing without the time progression and the challenge of night racing did detract from the experience somewhat.

    I really hope that S397 can produce a quality Le Man's for next year's event so we can use a decent sim ;)

    This is very confusing to watch car number and windscreen number not matching , multiple cars with the same number 24 hours without night a bit of a joke really. Like the Forza 6 Bathurst challenge X box did where only one of the finalist had ever used a wheel with pedals to play race.
