PostSubject: New Patch test 0.6A4 (old content / old physics / many updates)    Thu 16 Jun - 21:07

Hello racer ,

A new patch Test is available .
If you want install it pls, install new LFS in for no bug

if you want more info read this, good luck


PATCH Z25/Z28 to 0.6A4 (PATCH INSTALLER) (if you already have Z25/Z28) : (3.2 MB)

WARNING : THIS IS A TEST (hopefully the final test in this series)


You can read the story behind this thread in the main forum thread :

0.6A4 is NOT compatible with version 0.5Z28.
0.6A4 CAN play most version 0.5Z28 replays.
0.6 and 0.5 versions cannot connect to each other.

You cannot upload hotlaps made with 0.5Z30 to 0.6A4 because they are test patches.

Please keep a backup of your LFS.exe from version Z28 so you can go back to Z28 if there are any problems.

Changes from 0.6A3 TO 0.6A4 :

Updated Commands.txt and Autocross.txt
FIX : Small documentation error in InSim.txt (ISP_X / ISF_X)
FIX : Racing line did not work again after viewing invalid car
FIX : MAX ALPHA (unsorted) after adding a lot of chalk objects

InSim :

New IS_RIP option FULL_PHYS to use full physics when searching
FIX : TTime in IS_RIP was wrong in mid-join Multiplayer Replays

Changes from 0.5Z28 to 0.6A3 :

Contact detection and collisions :

Improved contact detection with road / walls / pit garage exit
Improved collisions with unmovable objects (e.g. red barriers)
Unmovable objects (e.g. ramps) now have concrete friction level
Improved wheel contact detection to reduce bad car collisions

SHIFT+U mode :

New free view mode replaces the old "low" and "high" path modes
Object or ground targeted by the mouse pointer is now detected
Left mouse button moves view point by "dragging" target point
Double click to move view point directly towards target point
Mouse wheel moves view point towards or away from target point
Left + Right mouse buttons rotate view point around the target
Arrow key movement follows ground below view point when possible
Store up to 10 views per track configuration with SHIFT+NUMBER
Recall a stored view with CTRL+NUMBER (or click the button)
Click on a car to follow it / look away to stop following
List of connections is now displayed in SHIFT+U mode
FIX : N key with options on caused overlapping text

Autocross editor :

New objects added and all objects are available at all tracks
Maximum number of autocross objects increased to 800 (was 512)
Multiple object selection - press CTRL and click object button
Selection can be deleted, copied (O), moved (M), rotated (,/.)
Object positioning is now accurate (uses mouse target detection)
Less CPU / better checks when adding / moving / deleting objects
Adding / removing autocross objects no longer resets all objects
Prevented mouse camera movement between button click and release
Reduced Z-buffer flickering of chalk objects and pit stop markers
Speed limit no longer enforced if autocross start position exists
Save layout button is now displayed in an SPR (same as in an MPR)
W/E/,/. keys now move values in minimum steps and use auto repeat

Add checkpoints / barriers to use open configs as race circuits
Checkpoints can now be up to 62 metres wide to include pit lane
Open configs can be selected with text command like /track=SO1X
Custom layouts race progress / history now stored at LFS World
Qualifying / race positions list / blue flags are supported

Optimisations :

Frame rate increased - drawing most world objects is much faster
Optimised transparent objects (e.g. fences) to help open configs
Much better frame rate with many autocross objects (faster draw)
Removed continual small memory leaks (materials list corruption)
Number plate generation is much faster, reducing pit-out glitch

Hotlapping support :

Tyres section in garage - settings for tyre warmer temperatures
You can load a layout in hotlap mode (may include start position)
NOTE : LFS World hotlaps may include start position - not objects
Hotlapping is possible on open configurations (not for LFS World)
Exit from pits now results in a clean restart to hotlap position
Reliable detection of wall side impacts (e.g. at South City)
Pit stops are no longer available in Hotlapping mode

Interface :

Clicking selected track loads that track (like pressing ENTER)
