  2. Monday August 12 was the date the registration for Simracersworld season 5 GT PRO series went live. GT PRO series is an all GT3 league held in iRacing. Registration opened at 18.00GMT, it was full 3 minutes later. SRW's success seems to have no boundaries with a big group of people who made it all possible. Same as previous seasons races will be broadcasted on apex racing TV on youtube and facebook. Because the PRO series has turned out to be extremely popular, we have created the EVO league, this all new league will mirror the PRO league, but will be held on thursday nights, and will unfortunately not be broadcasted, however due to this, the EVO league will be free of charge to participate! Registration fo EVO league will open up august 19th, so claim your spot when registration opens! For more information visit our Website: simracersworld WWW.SIMRACERSWORLD.COM Simracersworld Esports Racing team and European GT3 iRacing league Or join our Facebook group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/Simracersworld/

    Sim Racing Broadcast

    0 downloads

    Sim Racing Broadcast took me a long time to finish, mostly because i couldn't get it quite right. The finished logo is alright, but not quite what i had in mind when i started with it. Still, the owner is happy and that's the most important thing. To finish it all up, I made 3 short logo reveals. I like the middle one best, but i shared the two others too, so that they wouldn't go to waste all_3.mp4

    AllVirtualRacing.com Race Liveries

    So having had a great intro clip made for my by the sites very own Mr Jensen, I decided it would be a nice way of repaying him by offering my hand at designing some liveries for some cars on Iracing, here are the results....
  8. Hey everyone, Since I have no means of doing any meaningful racing as of right now, (no racing seat) I have decided that to pass the long days of unemployment I am going to try my hand at painting cars on Iracing. My previous ventures into this have been well received, see Mr Jensen's AllVirtualRacing BMW M8 and Mercedes AMG GT3 (the latter can be seen aroud here somewhere) so I have also decided to open up my inbox for any of you fellow Iracers to send me requests for personalised race paints on pretty much any of the road racing cars available on the platform. So feel free to hit me up either with a message on here or a message on twitter @ror_beardyguy. I am willing to make personalised versions of the car made specifically for Firben here, if you wish to run this as a team livery for example in official Iracing series etc, or just want to add a cool new lick of paint to rusty old car you have been running. So finally, this will be a free service unless this really picks up traction and I can get enough of a following to make a living, but as for now, no charge will be necessary, but if you do ever want to donate I will gladly accept I'm still a dirty layabout with no job haha) Drop me a message if interested 😄

    I really struggled to get this right, but eventually, @thebeardyguy ended up picking a very simple but stylish text only logo. Although I spent a lot of time trying different things out (even things not shown here) i really like the final one that got picked. After settling with a logo, I also worked on a logo reveal video, that combined his new logo and the team that he's racing in. logoandrevolution.mp4

    Just Sim Racing Logo

    I did a few logos for a broadcaster, mainly to get the hang of this. They turned out pretty well, and i hope they will use them. If you want a logo for your new project, do get in touch and we'll figure something out
  13. Earlier
  14. Throughout the couple of years that I have raced on the console, I have always had a mixed feeling of admiration and jealousy for the people racing on a wheel. It was clear that racing-games are meant to be raced with a racing wheel, and I felt that racing with the controller, although it felt pretty comfortable, was only a taste of what the games really could do. What convinced me that spending the money on a wheel was worth it, was a comparison I read about playing Guitar Hero with a controller. It can be done, and you can be good at it, but none the less, using the special Guitar shaped input device, is really how this game was intended to be played. So I went ahead and jumped in with both legs. I had been looking at a few option, but eventually went with the Logitech G920 and the Wheel Stand Pro. I wanted an entry wheel that was affordable, but had feedback, 3 pedals and also was compatible with both the Xbox One and Windows (mostly in case I might get a computer later on). The Wheel Stand Pro was a necessity, as I use my TV, and don’t have a desk to mount it on. Starting out I had never used a racing wheel before, so I didn’t know what to expect. I had heard people say that they didn’t get faster right away, but the immersion and the fun made it worth it, and that it felt a lot more like sitting in a real car. I can tell you that it feels nothing like sitting in a real car. Besides having the wheel, and the pedals at the right place, it really felt very artificial and honestly difficult to understand. After the initial buyer’s remorse, I started realizing, that what this wheel is trying to do is pretty impressive. All the information about grip, surface, bumps, damage etc needs to go through that wheel, but it would usually be something you felt with your entire body. After a few days, I started understanding the wheel and beginning to like it. Non the less, it was immediately apparent, that you can place the car a whole lot more precise on the track, and your racing lines get very sharp almost instantly. This doesn’t necessarily make you faster. In fact, I am a lot slower now, but as I can understand, it can take quite some time for you to get back to the same level as you were with a controller. For some, this can take up to a few months! I can agree with most other racers, that the pure joy and fun of racing with a wheel, compensates for the bad performance. The brake pedal, was hard to love The pedals were a challenge for me. First of all, using your feet and legs in a game, really felt very strange. I use them every day to drive my real life car, but to sit in front of my TV and use my feet for what I usually would have used my finger to do, really felt awkward. It took me a few weeks to really activate my feet! FOTO: Ricmotech Another challenge for me was the hardness of the brake. I know that this is an issue for many, and in reality, it might not have been an issue for me, if I hadn’t heard about it. The brake uses a spring to give a certain resistance, but the problem is, that inside that spring, Logitech has placed a rubber “cuboid“. This rubber stopper is hard enough to stop most of the pedal travel but soft enough to press it even further, using some extra power. You’ll need a lot of extra power to suppress it to 100% though, and some have felt that it might be too much. I too felt that I could not press it hard enough to stop the car properly. I had a few options to resolve this issue. Use the clutch pedal I don’t have the gear switcher, so I don’t use the clutch. A workaround for the hard brake pedal could be to remap the brake to the clutch pedal, that has a more linear resistance. Remove the rubber stopper You can take apart the pedal set, and remove the rubber stopper. This leaves the spring in, still giving a more or less linear resistance. Adjust the calibration When you calibrate the pedals, you are asked to press them all the way, so that the game knows how far the pedal can go. When calibrating the brake pedal, you can press it to the maximum level that feels comfortable to you. Then the game will distribute the braking range, across that range and you will be getting 100% brake at what you feel comfortable Adjust brake pressure Besides adjusting the calibration, you can often change the brake pressure for each car. You can increase the brake pressure to the point that they lock up when you brake the hardest you can. This can vary from car to car, and from track to track (not to mention conditions) so it is not a consistent change. FOTO: Gteye Mod the pedal There are endless options to buy aftermarket solutions to this problem. You can buy other springs, or replace the rubber stopper with more flexible stoppers. Ricmotech, even makes a force sensitive upgrade. What this does, it measures the power you put down on the pedal, instead of measuring the travel of the pedal. It even will replace the spring to make the pedal ease back to neutral position, instead of simply snapping back as it does by default. This simulates the hydraulic brakes you’ll find in most modern cars. Leave it as it is What I ended doing, was leave it and simply get used to it. This is really not a solution, but a conclusion I realized, once I understood what Logitech really was trying to do with this rubber stopper. In a real car, you have the brake pads closing in on the braking disc. Once they clamp around the disc, you usually can’t suppress the brake pedal anymore, but you can still press harder and get the braking pads to grab harder around the disc. When racing, you’ll need different levels of braking throughout the track. For light brakings, such as soft corners, or for weight transfer, I’ll press the brake pedal soft enough to reach the rubber stopper. For tight corners, hairpins or close encounters with other cars, I’ll press a lot harder, and go deep into the rubber stopper. I never seem to need 100% braking power so this suits me pretty well. You will need to get used to using your legs a whole lot more and aggressively. Depending on your position, this might be harder than for others. If you sit in a more upright position, it might be easier for you to brake hard, compared to one who races in a more laid back position. Non the less, it is a matter of getting used to it. The first time I tried Assetto Corsa with the brake pedal, I was pretty sure that I would never be able to press it hard enough, but it turned out to be just perfect for me, once I got used to it.

    @Jeff IracingIflag i've just set up the reviews blog, that is open to all registered users of AllVirtualRacing. You are welcome to spread the word to your reviewers. They are welcome to post about iRacingFlag, and also to embed any video, audio or images they may have.
  17. Ya that's a great idea Steph! Let me know when you get it setup and I'll post on our forums and point them this direction for some reviews of things they have used.

    Thanks @Jeff IracingIflag I just had a quick listen, but will have to wait for later and listen to it somewhere quiet, because its too noisy here (or they have recorded it too low?). Anyways, i think maybe it could be interesting to do a reviews section here on AllVirtualRacing.com and let people who have tried different products, services and apps, share their thoughts and experiences.
  19. I don't know if you guys follow the Iracers Lounge on Iracing at all but we sent our product in to them for a review and this is what they had to say about it with other sim apps.

    Thanks for this! I have heard a lot of good things about SimHub, and will certainly have to give it a try sometime soon. Mostly all dashboards run on external screens and phones though. Have you tried JRT and how does it compare to that?

    I use SimHub this program let you use your iPhone iPad and android units as a extra screen with info about revs shift light laps fuel lap layout with live positioning and so on. You can design a info screen yourself or use one of the many designs all ready made by other users. Just remember to start up the program on the pc and those you sim first then start it on your phone og iPad. You will first see the screen you thosed when you “sit in the car”

  25. This is a short overview with a few logo reveals where the logo has been replace with numbers. Many of these have customisation options, but it depends on many things. If you're interested, do get in touch with @Steph and we can have a talk about your options. I offer these as a pay what you want service, where the whole amount goes to covering the cost of running and improving this website. medium.mov

    Sim Racing Guys

    7 downloads

    The Sim Racing Guys needed an intro for a new project that they are launching soon. I couldn't make up my mind between the background colors so I ended up making two. One with a red background and the other with a very dark grey. You can comment bellow, and tell me which one you like the best! black.mp4 red.mp4 I ended up making a third video for these guys that was slightly longer. For this, I can customise the two colors of the stripes as well as the background colour. longer.mp4

    Dave had a logo with a white background. I did a quick and dirty background removal that although not proper, it worked out pretty well. DALE.mp4
