Hello and welcome to www.revolutionsimracing.com (https://revolutionsimracing.com/), a friendly and competitive group of PC exclusive Project Cars based racers with a focus on providing every member with regular races against large fields of drivers with similar ability levels.

To achieve this we have devised a unique and advanced ranking system that takes into account everything, from the number of drivers in a race and the race length, to a driver’s previous ranking and the level of competition they were competing against in any given race. In addition to the weekly ranked races we also offer regular special or endurance races. These can follow a set theme and (as well as counting towards your RSR Ranking) will allow you to accrue points towards short term points totals and eventual theme/championship goals too!

We are also hosting induction sessions every second Tuesday and ranked races on Thursdays and regular Sundays.

Some months or weeks will also be planned as themed months, this won't be every month but will be used to spice up our usual events, keep an eye on our Newsfeed (https://revolutionsimracing.com/) for regular announcements. This Newsfeed is also a great resource for staying up to date with new game content, RSR rules & regulations and of course the results of our previous events. We even have a comment section allowing all our members to get involved with the discussion!

Please see our About Us (https://revolutionsimracing.com/revolutionsimracing.com/about-us) page on our website for further information on what we do and how it all works, our Rules & Regulations (https://revolutionsimracing.com/revolutionsimracing.com/rules-regulation) page for details on the induction procedure (including our expectations from members) and our Join Us (https://revolutionsimracing.com/sign-up/) page if this all sounds like something you would like to be involved in.

See you on the track - The RSR Staff Team

Pamellaaa, t0daY, Photonenbert, FlyingKman and Hobbnob.

Finally... after weeks and weeks of hard work we are ready to go. A huge thank you to everybody who helped us with their input and opinions! I want to say a special thank you to XiondrapoS who ably assisted Pamellaaa with corrections, improvements and testing of the RSR ranking system and to Cluck who was our language and grammar guru for the content on the website. Finally also to Falcon, his input and enthusiasm throughout has been invaluable with this whole process.

Tuesday will be our first RSR Induction Night. I am looking forward to seeing many new faces!

See you all, of course, on the track!

Your angry-german t0daY


P.S.: Yes Cluck, finally the lobby is up again ;) :)

Welp, Newegg emailed me saying they contacted MSI and EVGA and they both said that they are still in the RMA process and I have to wait for around a week, and then they have to ship my parts so that could take a week too.

Guess I'm a no-show on Tuesday then.

I'm available for a one on one session with a tutor when my parts ship in, all you have to do is ask me :)

Hi all I'll be up for this but may not make all races 4 on 4 off 12 hour shifts at the moment :(
Pam you should goto UK-Forces.com web site, got a few taking up project cars so a post on there may bring in a few new faces.

Do you have Team speak 3? hmm is this happening tonight?

I saw the first event planned for tomorrow.

I might or might not make it. Depends on how long and how well the photoshoot goes.
I might need to decide between racing with you guys, or spend another 30-40 min with a (half-)naked girl (women), and make some photos :D

Decisions-decisions...

We updated our teamspeak 3 server yesterday. With 128 slots we should have enough room for everybody :) :)

On the website under Events -> Upcoming Events you can find more information. Or take this link (https://revolutionsimracing.com/upcoming-events/) here :)

That was just a testing thing on the website, this event won't actually be happening and has now been removed.

The first official event we will be running will be an induction session next Tuesday and this will be followed by the first of our ranked events next Thursday and Sunday :)

If you never did it before it seems to be odd but believe me when I am saying you will get almost a heartattack if we do the rolling start in our first ranked race.
It's very intense and exciting when we do a proper flying start with 20 drivers :)

Rolling start rocks! :D

I remember, in LFS, someone had setup something similar, and it worked well.

I think i'll enroll when my seat will be done and i get back to pCars.

Thanks for your effort!

Sorry to hear that :/ all in all there is no force to attend to every race. If you don't race your ranking will freeze and you won't lose any points. So it's basically no problem to join and attend just to few races :)
Other story will be of course our leagues. To win the championship you should be there for every race :p

Also I am happy to announce that already 25 people signed up for Revolution Sim Racing. That's more we have ever imagined. That was our goal after 1-2 months. This is just amazing :)
If we hit 40 people signing up I am going to tease information about our first upcoming league which will start in couple weeks.

Cheers!

Tuesday is my last day at work so I'm going to be a little late, hope to be on about 19:30.

Only thing I'm worried about is being a little tried from work, so my driving may be not at it's best

Only thing I'm worried about is being a little tried from work, so my driving may be not at it's bestI doubt that will matter. There's certainly no need to be fast, you just need to be alert enough to follow instructions. It's all very straight-forward, common-sense stuff so you'll be fine :).

I would imagine that induction sessions will be running every Tuesday. It will probably take a few induction sessions for people to prove their capabilities to the organisers. Also new people will be joining all the time so the Tuesdays sessions will probably be an on going event. I wouldn't worry if you miss the first few, there will plenty others for you to take part in.

past should be pass only error found so great work so far, no malice intendedNone taken and I always welcome being corrected where I am wrong :). That said, in this instance it would be incorrect to simply substitute "past" with "pass". "You are to allow any following cars pass before re-joining" should be "you are to allow any following cars to pass before re-joining". 'Past' or 'to pass', 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Personally, I prefer "to pass" so maybe one of the guys can change it in due course :).

Yup, no problem. It's always great to just relax, have a good time, and mess around with different cars. It also gives me the opportunity to evaluate most of you as well in case you guys have questions later on about improving your times that you may ask of me. :)

Yup, no problem. It's always great to just relax, have a good time, and mess around with different cars. It also gives me the opportunity to evaluate most of you as well in case you guys have questions later on about improving your times that you may ask of me. :)

Although I was 'a little' sideways during my 1m33 lap - and certainly didn't take the ideal line into Paddock Hill - I can't see me finding 6 or 7 seconds to get anywhere close to falcon's time.

I'll try again this evening with the 'Prime' tyre to see how that compares to the default one.

I could probably get 1:31:xx or a low 1:32 if I don't go of course in that one corner.

now I only have to find 5 more seconds ._. just how...

Just woke up! So many questions lol. I don't have the sector times sorry. I am using the super softs. No reason to use the primes anyways. As far as setup goes I'll be on later today as usual if you guys want to practice a few laps together and ask questions.

I think I got Gio down to a high 1:27. I gave him some homework to try and improve himself. Big key here for this car is throttle management ;) Have that mastered this car will be a breeze.

Hi guys, just a quick note to say that as we have more Red applicants than we were expecting and we are aware that not all of you will be able to attend our first induction event on Tuesday we are going to run an additional session on Wednesday this week. This should allow more people to get involved with the induction process and hopefully will mean that some extra drivers get a chance to get their Orange probationary member status in time for our first ranked race on Thursday. Remember the ranked races are only open to those with Orange or Green membership, Red members are not eligible to enter these events.

Please note that simply attending one (or both) of these events does not guarantee you promotion to Orange probationary status, we will still be looking at driving standards and teamspeak conduct from all who do attend but obviously the more often you attend the better a chance you have of getting promoted.

We hope to see as many of you as possible on Tuesday and Wednesday :)

Just to be clear, the currently signed up drivers who are in Red status are (Steam Names):

Jiflemon


Oilseal


jago25

Quick mention as well. Guys, if you can please go download the CrewChief spotter. Situational awareness is one of the biggest factor that we look into when evaluating drivers. We have some very very close racing and this spotter program has helped a lot of drivers when going door to door with other drivers. It helps us give the necessary room.

You can find the program Here (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?38922-Crew-Chief-an-alternative-race-engineer-for-PC-users). If you need help setting it up do let me know and we can configure it together. It's very simple. :)

Totally agree with falcon. Haven't made contact with anyone since using Crew Chief and had some really close side by side racing in the Ginettas in particular. You owe it to the people you are racing against to use this fantastic piece of software.

Good little test in that BAC tonight, yeah them tyres seems to help, but I'm still at best 1:28:low that can go into the high 28's. And then there moment when you spin and add 8s to that time lol.
Well see you all tomorrow for my Induction Night, hope I pass it ;)

Good practice tonight. :)

I'm a bit slow, but my settings are probably really poor which would explain a lot. If anyone has the time to type their settings onto the forum I think that a few guys would appreciate it, I certainly would.

Apologies for my lag in practice, I'm not sure what caused it, my mobile (android) was connected to the WiFi, so perhaps it started to do some updates. The main thing is that it settled down and behaved itself again. I'll keep the phones wifi turned off in the future. :yes:

^^^ just change the tyres to the supersoft and you'll gain some precious seconds instantly.

To give you an idea of how much, I was half-a-second faster at the S/F point on my opening time trial lap, compared to my previous best - bear in mind, you don't start with the optimum speed coming out of the final corner for that first straight. By the time I was half-way down from Druids to Graham Hill, I was nearly 2s up on my previous best time. That was on my first attempt with the new tyres, whilst I was getting to grips (oh I'm so funny :D) with them.

A 1m26 lap is certainly within reach with a few more laps practice. I keep messing up one corner or another - for example, on the first time trial lap, which is compromised by a slow entry into the s/f straight and even more compromised by cold brakes, I always manage to take Hawthorn faster than I do on my proper flying lap. I lose anywhere from 2-5 tenths of a second just on that one corner, every single time I try the flying lap proper. It's doing my head in :D.

So, after being abandoned by Gio tonight. ;) I decided to practice all by my lonesome. Seeing that Puff and Jetpistol set a 26.2 I could not let them have all the fun lol. I ventured out in my little Bac Mono and decided to set a fast lap!.

After a couple of minor setup tweaks we came to this:

221388



I thought about calling it quits but what's a mere 200 tenths? It's certainly nothing for the alien group. So I decided on pushing myself and the car/tires to the limits and got this nice lap.:cool::

Puff, we must defeat JetPistol at once! ;)
It's not impossible, it's just difficult ;)


Hey! Hey! nobody touch my Puffy ;)

But yes, they were great race combos. hope to see those combos in future leagues :)
The combos where great, especially the Rocket Bunny on Zolder, just wow :cool:


So, after being abandoned by Gio tonight. ;) I decided to practice all by my lonesome. Seeing that Puff and Jetpistol set a 26.2 I could not let them have all the fun lol. I ventured out in my little Bac Mono and decided to set a fast lap!.
Time Trial or it didn't happen :p Awesome time

Looking forward to tomorrows race but after the G40 and Mono I can't wait to race something with a bit more grip :p It's good for the basics tough.

And of course thanks to the RSR team for putting this together!

After a couple of minor setup tweaks we came to this:

I thought about calling it quits but what's a mere 200 tenths? It's certainly nothing for the alien group. So I decided on pushing myself and the car/tires to the limits and got this nice lap.:cool::

Well myself and Gio did some more practice tonight. My main focus was to be consistent while the tires degraded over the course of the 20 laps. I wanted to try and stay in the 26's as much as I could for race pace. I also focused on making sure that I could do a fast lap for qualifying consistently. The tires will only provide you with 4 solid laps to get a qualifying time in before the tires go off. I ended up going back to the original setup I posted as honestly its the best I've found for full race pace and qualifying. The tweaks I made to the car were pretty insignificant that there was no point in using them for the setup. Seems the limit for this car/tires is high 25's.

I haven't done any practice at all yet (will try to before the event) so I may have to steel Falcons setup and maybe tweek it for myself (probably tame it down a little?).
But I'm aiming for consistency (at a probably slower pace) and hope I can keep in the mid pack. So if the fast guys at the front can all just wreck and take each other out..... that would be appreciated, thanks! :p

Sorry guys but I'm going to bail on this series for now. I think that the series has great potential, there is some awesome talent here and I wish you all the very best.

I'm bailing, because for me, racing on the PC is just a complete headache. I've now got issues with Project Cars and the crew chief not working together which makes me lose my in-game audio and I can't fix it. I'm not particularly great with PC's, in actual fact I'm new to PC gaming and that's probably part of the problem, so when I come up against problems like this I can't quickly fix them, which is a bit annoying when I'm about 10 minutes from the start of a race.

I hate to admit this, but console gaming is just soooo much easier for someone that isn't great with PC's.

Well well... the luck was this evening not on our side...

First the dedicated server refuses to work, then several people had DCs or unhandled exceptions. After we run the first race in p2p (which was quite nice! :)) p2p striked back on the second race. The lags and warping made confusions on the 2x2 formation which leads to crashes and mass confusions... It can happen very easily once couple peoples warping around so that was just bad luck...

Anyways all in all thank you for our first ranked event :) If something goes wrong it goes horribly wrong but we are looking forward to next week!
We are looking forward to next week where hopefully everything is working again like usually :)

Thanks everyone who turned up tonight, apologies it didn't run as smoothly as we had hoped, Steam, DS, P2P, Connection, Lag and Warping were not on our side but it was hopefully still enjoyable for those who raced with us tonight.

We will get some further testing completed and try to iron out these issues ahead of next weeks events, thanks for sticking with us.

One thing we do need to highlight though is the levels of talking and people following instructions, ahead of the aborted start of the second race there were way too many people trying to get involved. We know you are trying to help but it makes things worse, please just remain quiet, allow us to direct proceedings and concentrate on following the instructions that we are giving.

05-11-2015, 22:08
I have no idea what happened tonight but it was an utter disaster for me. First off, I must apologise to anybody that was behind me on the grid at the start, I thought we were doing a rolling start so when the lights went green, I was waiting for the cars in front to move. The car directly in front of me didn't move at first, so I got hit from the rear. Then, after letting the field past and trying to claw my way back, I got hit and thrown into a wall, requiring a pit stop. After that, well, I got disconnected without realising I was disconnected. I only realised when I started to see cars piled up at the edge of the track. At that point I just threw the towel in for the night. I rarely just give up, but it was such a frustrating experience up to that point that I just didn't want to go through it again.

I gather I was also warping all over the place so, perhaps it was best that I didn't take part any further tonight!

Not the greatest of starts but I'm sure things will improve. Onwards and upwards :).

At least I drove from P10 to P4 :) First race was a little bit lonely for me because the first 3 driver (*hust* aliens) were just sooo much quicker than me. Because Monkey, Pamellaaa and Battenberg decided to fight I had my rest and just did some constant mit 1:27 until the tires went off :D

Well as far as I can tell, the problem is with the Crew Chief app. I read through a large chunk of the Crew Chief thread and I couldn't see anyone else experiencing the same problem.

I make sure that the wheel (G27) and headset (Turtle Beach PX21) are connected to my PC before starting it. I start the PC, open Steam, open the Logitech profiler, open Crew Chief (start the app) and finally I load PCars. Everything is fine, I have game sound, the Crew Chief did his radio check and all is good. Next I start a race/free run. The car exits the pit and I still have sound. I then 'push to talk' to the Crew Chief, usually telling him to, "shut up". I hear the Crew Chief app acknowledge that I've pressed my push to talk button (I hear the beep), after I have finished speaking the Crew Chief opens his mic to reply but I don't get any messages at all, I simply hear about 20 seconds of background (pit) noise. After this, I then hear a noise which sounds as though my headset has been disconnected (a click-click) and all audio stops. I can hear nothing from either the Crew Chief or PCars.

I had the same thing happen earlier in the day, but after restarting PCars and the Crew Chief app it fixed itself. This time it simply wasn't having it, I restarted everything including the PC multiple times with no joy at all.

There are no other applications running other than Teamspeak, Crew Chief, Steam, Logitech profiler, PCars and basic Windows 10 stuff.

I can't figure it out...... it had nothing to do with the Steam update. I will admit that I'm not on the new release of the Crew Chief, I think it's v3.7.2 and it was working perfectly the day before. TeamSpeak makes no difference, it still looses sound without TeamSpeak running.

That's about it really, I can't think of anything else, but if I've missed anything just ask me. If there's a simple fix then I'll give it a try.

I have had an issue with the Crewchief doing an open mic sort or thing but not playing any audio on an older version, didn't affect Project CARS but I have had other weird Project CARS audio issues as it doesn't seem to like the Windows default playback device changing while the game is loaded.

Its an odd one but there is a good likelihood that a fresh download of the latest Crewchief will help, if it still occurs I would look at changing the order you do things, maybe get Project CARS up and running first, then tab out to start Crewcheif.

Other possibility that I have thought of is the Push To Talk button also doing something else, unlikely if its a wheel button but still possible.

I tried loading Crew Chief last and it still lost my audio.

I use a wheel button to talk, it was working fine and as far as I'm aware it isn't combined with any other function while in a race.

I'll give v3.8 a try when I get time.

It's strange because it was working perfectly fine and as far as I'm aware nothing has changed.

Hey Ian. It could be various things so we must use process of elimination. My best guess is that somehow the speech recognition stuff got corrupted. Download the latest CrewChiew v3.81 and reinstall the speech stuff again. Try the program without using the toggle and then with. Let us know what happens. Also let us know if you have free time to go over this stuff as its much much easier to solve when talking over TS. :D

Thank you all for last night's races. It was really fun even I was really bad, because I didn't have any time before the race to practice, and now I see that practice is really needed to compete with you all. Everyone was very good, while I felt like I'm driving on a two pair of Iceskates (I choose Prime tyres in second race, because I could't warm up Soft tyres in 10 min practice before :( )
For next Thursday race I will definitly do some time trials for practicing.
And please, colud someone tell me what this section in a ranking table means: "Averige finishing %"?

It isn't based on improving positions at all, otherwise everyone would want to qualify on the back row. For the first event it is simply a case of above or below average finish position determines whether you get a points increase or decrease, so in effect anyone 13th or lower has a score reduction.

It gets better as it goes on though, and the lower a score gets the easier it becomes to see a score improvement and equally the higher a score gets the harder it gets to increase and the easier it becomes to fall.

As for people who haven't attended an event, everyone starts on 1000 points, but anyone not attending for a certain amount of time will be removed from the rankings until such time as they do attend.

EDIT: I will shortly (next week or so) be writing up a short overview of how the ranking works, what it takes into account and what we will be using it for just to give everyone a slightly better understanding of why we have created a system like this. The basic idea is though that we have a ranking and when need to split lobbies (which will likely be soon with the amount of new people we have signing up each day) we can split based on ranking performance which will give everyone a competitive race against people of comparable pace and will give everyone the opportunity to improve their score.

Oh and I forgot to check whether I did make contact with somebody. I did ask over TeamSpeak but didn't get a reply so, after slowing down for a bit waiting for the reply, I carried on. I went to overtake on the right, through Westfield (I think), and was sure I'd given the other driver enough room but I noticed in my rear view mirror that he/she had gone off the track to the left on that corner. If we did make contact then my apologies, it was far from my intention to do so. I am also aware, from later in TeamSpeak, that I was lagging so it might simply have been that.

I don't know if it's being fixed in the next patch, but I have no driver labels with the Oculus Rift, so it is almost impossible for me to apologise to people by name. Will have to see what Patch 6.0 brings I guess, to see if they come back.

Pam you could rank the second race for fun and as an example how the system works when everyone already has a rating different to 1000. That should help explaining it :)

after that awful race for myself (it's the car, not me ;)) my rating has gone down, not happy haha, but looking forward for the endurence race where i might be able to bring it back up, or if it doesn't count (i'm not quite sure) my rating will stay the same for a while as i did take a night of karete to give you guys a race, i did enjoy myself though no matter how crap i am in that "car", see you all later

I really enjoyed yesterday races, specially the second one because there was a lot less of unnecessary chatter. I hope members will start listening to admins and try to keep the unnecessary chatter when racing to a minimum.

I also wonder if falcon will always be so generous and share his basic setup? :) The setup you posted helped me a lot ( thx ) with control and whenever I try to do my own tune it always feels like Its the same, or worse. I prefer racing over tuning.

Good thinking, I can't put it on the site as it would mess with our live data but I can definitely do a screenshot of the table with the second race included. I could instead (or also) share the ranking data that came out of feeding the whole G40 league that I ran in, obviously we aren't using any of this for RSR ranking but as a demonstration of how it works and what results we get its a pretty good set of data.

I can't do anything with this for a couple of days as I am out tonight and tomorrow night but I can have a look on Sunday for you.

Indeed the second race was a lot better from a comunication point of view, shame it couldn't be ranked as I managed to nab a podium but given the chaos at the start it would be unfair to include it in our official rankings.

Some teething problems are to be expected though, overall it was still good fun and its nice to just get something like this started, to borrow a phrase from Cluck, onwards and upwards from here! :)

Same here, i have the PRIVILEGE:rolleyes: to practice many times with Falcon and whether i get a tune set up from the SetUp base website and start tweaking (god knows what) or Falcon give me some tips and some numbers, weirdly i have tried Puff and Falcon set ups and i can't handle the cars, i can be faster but i cant keep the car on track for the whole race, so i recommend you to give a try to set ups, believe me, i am a complete moron if someone ask me anything about set up, but i am trying to learn now :eagerness:

Later when league start the "tough guys" will have to keep their secrets, in that case you have to work it out most from yourself and teammate :couple_inlove:

was a fun race, too bad crabby lagged a bit in the end and basically teleported into my front bumper when I thought he was just running the corner a bit wide :( oh well, nothing you can do about it. I'll just try harder next time.

just watched the replay and I need to apologize to the person I forced of the track at some point (like 10 minutes in) by going inside and then running wide. super sorry, didn't realize just how wide I actually ran that corner.

Managed to find a bit of time to get the results of using the G40 league data, it looks like this:

Thanks for the quick update Pam! I'm a sucker for numbers and statistics ;) I guess average finishing % gives you an indication of where you landed relative to the field which automatically gives you a lower percentage on a bigger field, so first in a 30 people lobby is more valuable than in a 20 people race. Quite clever :)

Quite clever :)

I too am a sucker for stats, this whole thing started for me as an experiment to see if I could devise some sort of ongoing ranking system rather than a traditional leage setup just to see if I could, it kinda expanded rapidly from there ;)

Yeah in effect that is exactly what it is, your finishing position as a percentage of the total who competed, 1st in a 25 car field = 4%, 1st in a 32 car field = 3.125%. It was originally setup with just a straight average of finishing positions but the numbers produced made very little sense given the large variations in field sizes.

Note: a couple of the minor parameters have changed between the data above and our live set, it probably wouldn't have changed any positions but the overall scores would be different if I ran it all again. It also isn't as good as it could be as the data set I had wasn't run with the ranking in mind. This means that having two distinct lobbies set from the start limited the way things moved a little bit (it still worked quite well though), with our normal ranked races (not leagues) where we need a split it will always be done from the rankings giving people as much opportunity as possible to race against people of comparable performance, this will also mean that, when we need two lobbies we will always have even split rather than one nearly full lobby and one more empty one :)

Any other questions just ask, I will do a full write up of how the ranking system works and what variables are taken into account soon too :)

That is correct. Once the league starts no more sharing setup. My setups aren't anything wondrous by any means. Racing and Tuning go hand in hand. You will expand your horizons even further by being able to understand what the car is doing. As such you can be flexible and adapt a driving style to suit the car. Understanding everything takes time and there is reading and researching required but you learn so many new things that it's worth it in my opinion. :D I may hold setup tuning days before events where people can ask me questions to help them out.

CrewChief v3.82 is up! Some bug fixes were added. The guy is a machine!

Download Here (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4KQS820QNFbN1VfZHRZMDdSc1k/view?usp=sharing).


Edit: I forgot to mention that I will be hanging around the server later today around the usual time (19-20UTC) in case anyone is up for fun races or even Rocket League :)

Also anyone up for some bug testing? Need 4 volunteers. Just meet me in the ts server later. Should not take more than 30min.

watching this improved my laptimes by roughly a second with potential for another one on good tires.

Yes, that's right. Every time I put in some reasonable effort in TT mode, SMS comes up with the idea to reset leaderboard times. :cool: Here's an overview (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?26956-Played-online-this-morning&p=971405&viewfull=1#post971405) of some of my - more or less decent - laptimes with the GT3 class before the last reset which also includes some thoughts on potential times from my pov. After all, I don't really care about leaderboards - Nordschleife is just my favourite track.

They can be beaten easily. But Nordschleife lap times don't primarily depend on the setup - it's like 95 percent raceline and 5 percent setup.

Considering we have a website is it possible to also create a forum? It would help with organization and planing which I think I need not to explain.

EDIT: Also gent's tomorrow we should have an unofficial race at our standard time ( 19:30 ). Lets face it there is simply no other way :)
