09.06.2012 um 14:00 Uhr
NewsDie Woche neigt sich dem Ende entgegen und Slightly Mad Studios hat eine neue Version der Rennsimulation Project C.A.R.S. für alle Mitglieder des WMD Projektes veröffentlicht.
Mit Build 229 gibt es wieder jede Menge Verbesserungen und Erweiterungen. Außerdem haben wir alle Bilder der aktuellen Community Galerie zusammengefasst.
Mit der aktuellen Version von Project C.A.R.S. (Build 229) kommen Spieler der Alpha wieder in den Genuss verschiedener neuer Inhalte. Dazu gehören beispielsweise die Strecken Delaware sowie Concord. Außerdem gab es zahlreiche Optimierungen im Bereich der Bedienung und des Verhaltens sowie der Anzeige des grafischen Interfaces in den Spielmenüs. Streckenicons, Controller-Icons und vieles mehr wurde implementiert um die Navigation zu erleichtern und die Auswahl einer Strecke für Rennen zu verbessern.

Eine vollständige Übersicht aller Änderungen die in den letzten zwei Wochen Einzug in C.A.R.S. hielten seht ihr wie üblich etwas weiter unten. Zuvor haben wir ein paar der neuesten Community Bilder, wobei viele weitere in unserer Project CARS Galerie zu finden sind.

Changelog Build 222 - 229

Build 229 (8/6/12, Team Member+)
  • OneSock threading fixes and improvements:
    - Added OneSock lock used to synchronize access to all data shared between OneSock and main threads
    - Replaced unreliable usage of volatiles in OneSock lib by proper locking. This fixes OneSock synchronization not working at all in some cases, especially on consoles
    - Replaced class-specific locks in Authentication lib by OneSock locking where appropriate. This fixes deadlocks when OneSock and main threads try to access the same resource at the same time
    - Fixed several issues in wip hybrid protocol implementation
    Ghost system:
    - Added GreenLight callback to ghost players.
    - Downloaded ghosts will be enabled when the race starts (and sit on the start line until the player crosses the start line), instead of appearing only when the player crosses the start line
  • Live Delta Potential Lap code improvements to help with a few issues exposed by Winsconsin Raceway
  • Updated skipping the player's vehicle driveline integration during rolling start, so that wheel fibers remain executed and steering column torque is calculated all the time
  • Ping rebroadcaster regularly while in a game session. Update current, recent average, highest short-term average and all-time average ping statistics. Pinging the rebroadcaster also lets it know our public IP for NAT punchthrough purposes
  • Memphis - add new textures for stands

  • Concord initial dynamic objects to make inner Circuit entry more visible
  • Concord Oval: New compete AIW First pass. 36 pit and start spots
  • DX11 fix for black silhoette around cars bug

  • Ghost system:
    - Renamed ghost bit stream put functions to make it clear what is signed and unsigned value
    - Renamed delta compression functions to make it clear what is signed and unsigned value
    - Delta compression functions take both full value and delta precision as arguments
    - Applying deltas to values is now done via explicit functions, instead of direct addition and subtration
    - Improved compressor statistics in the debug channel
    - Improved delta compression, which can now take advantage of wrapping around the range bounds
    - Added unit test for delta compression
    - Improvement GhostPrint() debug function to print all parts of the message in one piece, so that the various pieces are not interrupted when printing from multiple threads at the same time

    - Added job queue for the ghost cache
    - Deleting cache entries locked in memory will only queue them for deletion, instead of deleting them immediately.
    - Ghost cache will now process certain tasks on ghost entries: load/save is implemented, upload/download and compress/decompress will be implemented later. The cache will either perform the tasks on its own, or will offload them to the background thread, as appropriate
    - Added API to initiate ghost download. The cache will decide from where the ghost should be retrieved
    - Cache search functions will ignore ghosts queued for deletion
