    so don't keep it only optical as it was usual before (mainly watching at the bars only) when setting up suspension things, you need to have a close look at the specific values at every bar now.
    im having that problem with the ks2. the rear slides out when it wants to, even under braking Sad

    time to do some homework...

    it's maybe also because of the less downforce of the KS2 now.. -not only in the high speed corners, it's more difficult to drive now Very Happy I think.

    Me too, but I don't hear the car turning on or off, I hear something more like an helicopter... my screen keeps flickering and I can try to start the car (I hear the engine trying to catch up then nothing). Happens both online and offline, no matter what track/settings I use... anyone? Even tried to create a totally new driver, etc. Wasted.
    I've deleted *everything* before installing the new version, twice, and tried with old and new driver. No luck. First time ever that nkpro has such a problem here.

    EDIT: Seems that the problem was in the nkpro profile that I had on RadeonPro (the little utility that controls AMD video settings). Deleted the profile and now everything is working just fine. YAY! Smile

    Had a chance to install and test now, i've got to say theres some huge improvement. Not entirely sure on the Vintage replica. Seems a bit wishy washy at times. But the KS2 is great.

    Not had a chance to race online yet, so the verdict on collisions is yet to come. But if the rest of the update is anything to go by then it cant go wrong.

    And Mika, if you feel the need to comment on my every word just to justify your existence, then fine. But the guy was out of line, swearing and blaming the game for a mistake on his part. No need to start shouting like Kunos did it deliberately just to annoy him. Going off the rails doesnt achieve anything. Politely asking for help does.

    your attitude stinks mate. the way you talk to people is out of order. if you tried being nice, people might actually like you.

    and if you think i was "shouting at him" and "going off the rails" then you seriously misinterpret things differently than most people :/

    im glad you like the game so far. get yourself online and test the new collision model - its in a league apart from previous versions Very Happy

    Think you've misunderstood. I know you werent shouting, and didnt say that you were Wink

    Also, i've been around the interwebs long enough to not make a fuss about people actually liking me. My online persona doesn't reflect on my 'real life' attitudes or behaviour. I use the internet for my own enjoyment. If i wanted a popularity contest i'd go back to school. Smile If i took everything on the internet seriously i think i'd have actually killed myself.

    Tried some races online yesterday. The new netcode is way better than the old. I could even slipstream and do very close battles without problems, several times, in a single race. Now it is worth to play online! Thanks, Kunos.

    Collisions are near enough perfect. I was REALLY happy when a guy span in front of me and i hit him. Just smashed off the side of him and ran across the grass into a wall. Perfect!

    Does anyone know how to turn off the Connection Quality Indicator? I mean the thing which is blinking at the left side of the screen? It's distracting sometimes. For me it's always between 95 and 98, I see no reason in it to be blinking when the "Net Q" is this high.

    is there any way i can turn the "new full shadows in mirrors off" or does any one have an idea if it is possible to turn shadows off completely ( foor some reason im using up a lot more FPS than the beta edition)


    thanks

    You can turn off the shaders in the mirrors. It's "DISABLE_SHADERS=1" in your cfg/nkpro.ini (nK main folder).
    Also, It seems to me that there is more lag and bad FPS in multiplayer. Sad

    Did you try to restore any backed up car setups? I had similar problems until I deleted everything and did a clean install, and then only put back my own setup files into the setup folder (avoid copying cfg.ini, ts.nkts and nkdksetup.nkst) from your backed up setups.

    When i install the game i do what you telling me and everything works fine but after a restart of pc the problem appears again.

    Just a question: Are there any other people who experience the same drop of performance in general/on many tracks? The new version seems to be not well optimized, because I get a lot more lag in MP-sessions and FPS drops on many different tracks. What shall I do?

    For me performance is very much the same as in 1.2, 1.3 beta, I have to mention I did not compare exact FPS values compared to 1.3beta so far, but performance seems quite the same for me.
    Don't know, but maybe it helps a very little bit to turn off the shaders in mirrors again, before the 1.3final no shaders were used in mirror display, this can be set in the nkpro.ini file*, also
    turning off v-miror saves a lot performance as always on my PC.., but if possible I use it to have a better look at the back.
    Is there really more lag ? I don't discovered much lag so far -still have to test more in MP, I think with new netcode cars positions on track are more stable at least.

    *edit: I tried with no shaders in mirrors, but there's no much difference, you gain only 2-8 FPS by turning off shaders in mirrors, so you can left it turned on.
