Hi everyone!

Director mode is actually unusable. The racers time table doesn't show the right information about players. The racers order is broken and if you switch between players you are not getting the right information about the race.

I'm going to attach a video demo about this issue, it's very noticiable if you compare the 2 videos. This is a race we played yesterday, with a Race Director, in a Spanish Championship:

If you go to the end of the race, you can easily check the wrong order of the racers between onboard camera and director mode broadcast. If you contrast the ending results, both of them are absolutely differents... For instance "Dady_qrl" finished 4 in the race, however in the director broadcast, during the race it was 8-9, aswell the final result (and he wasn't get some penalties).

Onboard screenshot results:

250451

Director screenshot results:

250452

During the race, when the director switched between players, the order was broken. Here you can check 2 videos of the race ("director" and "Dady_qrl onboard")

Yes, at the beginning of the race, the race director wanted to see the fourth driver, but for him was the nine one about 27:22 start the race and race director was checking all the position and that was wrong in some cases.

Did a few drivers connect whilst the session was in progress? It is known that that messes the order in director up.

Drivers DIE and JOS, the last 2 in the incorrect live standings for sure
Watching the video you can see that Qualifying session started with 11 drivers, after 1-2 min 2 drivers joined the room, JOS and DIE. So 13 at the end

Maybe drivers MJ0 and DADY disconnected and re-joined during free practice session?

Maybe a workaround: do not use Director Mode while streaming. Connect as a normal driver and retiring to pits before the race start (if the room is not full of drivers) using spectator mode. If I remember correctly, standings are OK for spectators but incorrect for Director.

Other player sendme these links by PM, because he can't still post links (new user):

Here is the video of the same race from his POV:

And two captures of the same moment where he is in 8th from the directors view, while he was 6th from his POV:

250484

250485

He was 3th at the start of the race, but in race director screen he was 9th.

Yes this happens when drivers join in once a session starts. I think its been reported?

I'm also having issues with this and it's pretty embarrassing to try to explain while commentating a race on livestream.
