Removed voice chat ‘you are transmitting’ sound ‘ people thought that they were transmitting static.

Session screen tabs, F2, and F3 black boxes corrected to no longer clip times, some club names, etc. Long driver names may still clip if too large to fit in the available space.

The F3 black box can no longer scroll past the end of the list.

At race start, the F2 standings black box correctly shows qualifying times.

We have added the option to select your internet connection type in the ‘my account’ section of the website. New customers will also be able to select their connection type during sign up.

The sequential and direct shift gearbox controls may now be assigned to the same device.

The clutch pedal control now shows activation in the options screen when assigned to a button or keyboard device.

iRacing Chat Client

Several chat client audio issues have been fixed, including the initial pop or squeal sometimes played. Also a new option for recording voice using 8-bits (the default is 16-bits) has been added which might solve some of the recording issues for some audio devices ‘ if you are having issues using voice chat from the web based chat client, you might try this new option to see if it works better.

The Skip Barber car now has adjustable brake bias in the garage.

Race Control and ttRatings

Fixed a problem wherein car numbers were assigned incorrectly in races with a mix of Rookie and non-Rookie participants.

We have adjusted the ttRating formula so that drivers that have only time trialed at a few tracks are less likely to see their ttRating fall when they time trial at a new track. Everyone’s ttRating has been recomputed using this new formula. It is likely that the relative ordering of drivers based on ttRating has changed.

From time to time, ttRatings will be adjusted service-wide so that they better match the current iRating range. ttRatings have been adjusted during this release. Note that this amounts to applying a scale to everyone’s ttRating, so the relative order between drivers does not change.
