Schedule:  Weekly - Wednesdays 

   6pm Pacific - 7pm Mountain - 8pm Central - 9pm Eastern

Race Server Name: GRM SEASON 14 RACE.... (The password is the three letter acronym of a popular automotive magazine based in Florida, lower case)

Join the Discord channel: Unofficial GRM Forum to allow audio chat.

Race Format:  Each track will be run twice on it's race night.  Each race being 10 min.  First race positions are based on qualifying.  Second race is an inverted grid of the first race results.

Points:  Point are accumulated base on the finishing order of the average of the two races (ties going to the better finisher of the first race).  1st place scores 20 pts, 2nd 18 pts, then 17, 16, 15, 14 etc.

Drops:  One drop per driver will be allowed.  Lowest point finish for series will not be counted.  If the series has more than 8 races, 2 drops are allowed.

Handicaps: Finishing 1st on a race day will result in 2 HC steps.  Finishing 2nd is one HC step.  Finishing 4th or lower will reduce you HC by 1 step.

Restarts and Yellow Flags:  Restarts can be called for with the consensus of the racers when the beginning of the race results in a significant crash.  Yellow flags can be called for with the consensus of the races and will require the lead car to slow until the pack has gathered (in single file), then the leader will initiate the re-start.

Courtesy Waits and Penalties: When a drivers action causes another driver to be forced off the course, or loose positions, it is suggested the offending driver wait for the affected driver, and let them ahead of them.  Penalties may be given out for serious offenses.  Penalties (determined by majority of drivers) will involve a lose of 2 points. 

Car Selection: General rule is only two cars of each type in the series.  First claim have priority (post here or indicate during practice / race). Drivers are allowed to switch cars ONCE, but not after the start of the 3rd race.  Alternate option (must be indicated when they start the series):  A Driver can switch as many times as they like, but car choice will be random and only involve cars driven by fewer then 2 drivers.  Exceptions to the above will certainly be considered on case by case basis (bribes are allowed).

Setup and Getting Started Info

Discord download (for voice chat and info): https://discord.com/download

Content Manager and Shader patch - Highly recommended (CM requires a donation for full function, but WELL worth it):

 https://acstuff.ru/app/  (yes it's from Russia)

 https://acstuff.ru/patch/  (not required by greatly improved graphic / appearance)

Sol graphic mod (not required but greatly improved weather /sky / atmosphere and some other effects): https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/sol.24914/

 

Suggested add-ons:

Helicorsa (adds nice overview of cars around you):  https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/helicorsa.5199/

FFBClip (adds way to graph and easily adjust force feedback, per car): https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/ffbclip-app.7910/ 

Sidekick (a more detailed "info" bar for speed, gear, tire temps etc.): https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/sidekick.11007/

Shortcut Key: Adds useful keyboard shortcuts, like  Ctrl + B : Teleport to pit position, Ctrl + E : Exit Game             https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1YNsvldx4s2nMVtNPHlTTUtBHrcy_TgDU

 

Getting Started with Discord:

This looks long/complex, but I assure you it goes pretty fast and its very easy to use.

1) Read the Discord thread, if you wish: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/simulation-central/grm-discord-channel/177517/page1/

2)  Download Discord from https://discord.com/

3) Once you get it up and running, send me a message on there.  My name is prodarwin#1538.  Put it in the upper left box.    Just let me know you want a GRM invite and your forum name if I don't have any way of identifying you.

4) Make sure your mic works.  I suggest you go to user settings (bottom left of screen):

Click voice and video, adjust your volumes, and your devices if necessary.  You can select push to talk or 'voice activity'.  Discord is actually very good at deciding when you are talking, so it works pretty well and saves you the need to bind a button.

5) Once you are in the forum, if a bunch of stuff has a locked symbol, PM one of the mods.  They will need to add you to the GRM group so you have access to the sub-channels.  

6)  When you are in the discord, you'll see this bar on the left, with all the channels you can join.

The important thing to note here is, when it comes time to play AC, look for the Assetto Corsa channel, if it shows some people below it, they are currently in the channel, which probably means we are racing.  Just click to join.

If you are in a text channel and want to get someone's attention you can @ them and it will display a notification, or send a push notification to their phone.

Finding you Discord User ID (which will be needed when joining the online room):

 - In the lower left of the Discord screen, click on your name/icon.  In the screen the pops up, roll over the # icon in the upper right (it will likely be similar to your Discord name with a number added)

 

Logitech Wheel setup Info:

  Logitech Profiler Settings (a good starting point at least):

In game Wheel settings (a good starting point at least):  

  (The 107% Gain is a bit of a secret best setting to reduce the center dead zone apparently)

Assetto Corsa / Shader Patch suggested settings changes (from base):

Remove windshield glare (Settings - Assetto Corsa - Video):

Set readings to 'murican units:

 

Content Links:

https://www.racedepartment.com/  primary source (use Google to search)

http://assettomods.com/   nice cars and car packs (seems to be Australian focused)  

https://mabimotors.com/forum/assetto-corsa/sites-de-mod-pour-assetto-corsa/  List of sources for cars / tracks

https://tarnhoerner.de/   car packs for various classic racer series

 https://vrc-modding-team.net/  Formula 1 cars and tracks

 

Here is a link to my Google drive with some resources that will be a lot easier to get here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1YNsvldx4s2nMVtNPHlTTUtBHrcy_TgDU?usp=sharing

Currently up there:

 - 7zip installer (use this to decompress car and tracks).  The default Windows decompress seems to work fine though.

 - Logitech Profiler (essential for setting up a Logitech Wheel)

 - Logitech GHub (needed for Logitech G29 wheel)

Note: the NVIDEA tools are not needed if you have the Content Manager. I could not get the plug in to install in the latest version of PS anyway.

 

Here is a good link for how to setup a Logitech G27 wheel (G29 should be the same):

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=276305371

G27 (and maybe G29) should work best with gain set to 107%.

I just sent you the art for last one also Dean, if you want to save on shipping(!)

I am currently leaning  1:  A110   2: Merc   3: BMW.   

I honestly haven't driven them all, but these are reasonable for me and I will take a less used car as needed

In reply to aircooled :

If you end up with the Merc or some one else wants it I will take the Vantage. I like the Mer better but I think I may be a tad faster with the Vantage.

So I was running the Sin last night and did a little tuning with the tire pressure, ABS, TC, and Brake balance and that car is so much better AND the power curve in it is so much better than the Merc.   May go Sin after all. . . .  Hummmmmm.. ....

And then there are the brakes of the Sin.  They are better than the Merc and the Merc has darn good brakes.

Moto  I am going to need your Steam ID #

4/2/24 8:51 p.m.

In case you don't know how to find your steam id:

1.    Open steam and click on the question mark next to your name (in the small red square box in the image below) at the upper right. You will get a pulldown menu.  Click on "Account details" in the pulldown menu.

2.   Then look under your actual steam account name and you will see your steam ID number (in the red rectangle box in the image below) on the left side.

 

I need that number to assign you a car.  You can PM it to me here on GRM or on Discord.  With that I can assign you a car.

HOL UP! Livery assignment. I have to choose from Marlboro, Martini and Gulf? If it actually said Marlboro that would be my first choice but since it doesn't I have to go with Gulf. Or Martini. Wait, Gulf, for sure.
