OR~ShiftyLynel: I've had this happen a few times, though it's usually hard to pinpoint the exact issue. Have you changed any hardware recently? Is so, try removing it. If that doesn't work, I'd start stripping back the PC (disconnect all but your boot hard drive, remove all but one monitor, graphics card etc) see if you can get it to boot, then add the components back in until you find the faulty component. Others may know if a better way to trouble shoot it.
fez: i did try to swap ram and gpu to another pc, after that it hasnt worked, the 2nd machine wasnt working till i put all the old stuff back into it, i put the ram and gpu i tried to swap over back into my race machine and now its not even lasting 1 sec before it restarts and reboots only to repeat th eprocess

With more & more racers using DD wheels, should we also implement this clause?

'@everyone driving at SRM
Important Announcement:
SRM Statement regarding Post Race Crashes
Dear SRM Community,
While most of the time a post race crash in a game wouldn't be an issue, we are aware of a gradual increasing number of drivers using Direct Drive wheels, which are capable of causing actual physical harm to drivers if mistreated in the right scenarios. The worst case scenario is what happened recently on one of our race event, where a driver had finished the race, and would not have been expecting any kind of collision, and then a high speed crash causes his hand to be partially trapped, which resulted in the breaking of the driver's shifter module.
If this crash had happened only slightly differently a driver could have broken his hand and/ or wrist.
While we are aware this scenario is an uncommon one, we now can no longer ignore the potential risk this type of crash poses.
From now on any driver who purposely causes a major crash after a race has finished will result in either an immediate disqualification or be banned from the rest of the championship entirely.
This is for everyone's safety and we hope you all understand.
We will share this post as it might help give awareness to others organizations.
See you on track,
from the SRM Team.'
Obbzy: GT3s @ Hockenheim is on Tonight
Obbzy: Hey Merlin, Just reading about the new shaders for Nordschleiffe etc... They affect fremerates if you are using Ultra post effects.
Perhaps turn post effects down & see if the framerates normalise, before you change video cards...
I had framerate issues after using Nordschleiffe yesterday too. Hockenheim was ordinary low rates.
I'll check tonight to see if the post effects 'fix' works...
Merlin: Thanks for that info Obbzy, I'll give that a test tonight m8.:D
SmellySkidmark: Server updated
Obbzy: I had no issues with Oulton Park. Perhaps it was a track issue???
Shawn: Really good fun tonight, thanks all.
fez: many of you blokes pwn wreckfest?
Dug: I have submitted my own evidence into the GT3 file browser from an independent source
RobZee: Haha Dug....nice try :P
OR~ShiftyLynel: Hahahaha that's brilliant!

My apologies to everyone for the round 3 issues we had.
To keep the racing going turned out to be a challenge with all the dropouts and lagg that some people had.
I only saw lagg once but it was worse for others particularly in race 2.
I don't know what it was but I'll point my middle finger at the NBN.
So again apologies to the 3 racers that missed out on race 2.

So an update to our round 3 issues.
We've purchased a new server that will be in place asap.
Probably not up and running for round 4, but round 5 or 6 at the latest. Dependent on delivery in our china flu world atm.
In the mean time the server bandwidth is running at max capacity, just to stabilize our setup.
I think there maybe have track issues, the same as we had at Road America, in series 1 of the GT3s. When we switched to a different track version we had no problems, go figure.
And again I'd like to apologize for all of the problems for round 3.

Apologies to AUSBamBam at the brickyard Tuesday. From your chair you had no room I see that. I was looking to keep under Shifty & when we touched that's what bumped me to the right & where you had no place to go, sorry.
I had passed you, but didn't see you creeping up so quickly. Again sorry Bam.

Sorry if I had any part in the Koil and BamBam. I haven't done much oval racing and don't really know the proper etiquitte of it yet. I think last race was a big learning experience for us all.

Thanks for the post Shifty. No you didn't, but I was looking too bump draft you, but it seemed in the replay you for looking for which side to run on, so when you moved right so did I & took Bam with me right at the time I had believed he would want to bump draft me.
I don't think everyone got the Bump-draft Memo lol

I'm having some problems finding the next rounds track online, I do have a "installed" copy to use.
So join our TeamSpeak go to GT3 Series room, right click on that room, open file browser, go to Tracks folder, then download the track.
Drop it directly into your "installed" Tracks folder.
Restart RF2 client then you can join the server.

hope you can follow these instructions, it does work.
