Radiator Springs Racing Research and Development team proudly presents their first app for AC: RSR Live Timing.

The aim of our app is to bring a live hotlap competition to Assetto Corsa Early Steam Access.
At the moment our app is still a proof of concept, but it already includes all we need to make the competition fair and clean.

Just unpack the application in {Steam_AC_ home}



make sure you have the following new folder in the {Steam_AC_ home}\apps\python folder:
- RsrLiveTime

Enable the RSR modules from the Options>General menu

Make sure your personal details are filled in into the Profile in the AC gui


Your avatar will be automatically retrieved from your Steam account.
NOTE: you can change your AC profile whenever you want. Your changes in AC will be reflected into all your previously done laps.


Now start up Assetto Corsa and start driving




move your mouse on the rightmost of your screen. AC application bar will appear. click on RSRLiveTime app




The app will try to connect to the server and, after few seconds should show details about the track standing you are in.


 

and start driving.

 

You can see time difference from the other drivers clicking on the  button.



RSR Live Time app will show you:




- position, lap time of the leader, and your gap from him
- position, lap time of the driver in front of you, and your gap from him
- your position and lap time
- position, lap time of the driver behind you, and your gap from him

Only your valid laps will be tracked and sent to our server. If you go off track your time will not be logged.

There is an indicator to show if your lap is valid or not.

As soon as you will go off track, the indicator will turn red, and your time will be considered invalid, and will not be send to the live timing.

 

You can check full live results from our website.

Login using your steam account

and insert your steam username and password:
NOTE: in some cases steam recognize your account only with initial capital letter (i.e. if your account is yourSteamAccount, insert YourSteamAccount)

 

 

Your interface will be personalized with your own results, and will keep your favourite settings

 

You can choose the style of the website you want. We have three predefined styles: coloured, dark and simple. Choose the one suits you best.

 

The interface will also personalize the graphs with your results

 

On the website you can see driving aids used by the driver on his best time.

The application records details about the assists you used during your best time.

  • When the icon is red, means that that assist is enabled
  • When the icon is white, means that that assist is disabled

and your configuration. Hover on the info button to get more information.

 

 

 

If you want to see details about one driver, go into the Drivers menu, and search for him by inserting part of his name

 

 

 

 

We have 2 sections for stats:

By clicking on the Stats menu you can find statistics about every driver registered in the RSR Live Timing, and know more about how they have been using it so far.

By clicking on the Live Stats menu you can find statistics about drivers online, and know more about they are doing in this specific moment.

 

HOW TO INSTALL RSR Live GUI

To install the RSR Live GUI, just go in AC Option menu, and activate our module.

 

Once you've done it, you will see a new RSR Live button on the left bar.

You can now navigate on our website directly from AC GUI, select the event you want to run and jump on track with a click of a button pressing the START ENGINE button.

Everything will be configured for you, including your skin, the right assist settings.

For Hotlaps, in the RANK page,  the PRO Rank Settings will be automatically set. We override only the PRO Rank settings, and keep untouched the other settings (i.e. clutch). If you want to change those other settings, please do it from AC menus (i.e. hotlap/race...).

For Events we configure all the setting for that specific event. You can run Hotlaps or Races against AI, for now.

 

If you want to keep using the normal AC interface, there will be no problems. The app will work smoothly in both ways, clicking on the START ENGINE button on our GUI, or in the traditional way in AC.


You can also run AC Special Events from AC GUI.

 

Results will be recorded and appear in the event list.

 

HOW TO REPORT A LAP

HOW TO DELETE A LAP

and clicking on the X close to the irregular lap [​IMG]

PRO RANK

This is a rank based on predefined cars/track combinations with predefined assist settings (PRO settings). This allows to compare drivers in the same conditions.
The total rank time is the sum of PRO lap times in each cars/track combinations.
If a driver doesn't have any PRO laptime for one of the ranked combos, 1 hour will be assigned as laptime on that combo.

We've defined so far 2 categories of PRO ranks:

  • All Round with 10 different cars on different tracks (chosen between the most used cars/tracks used so far, trying to have different types of cars)
  • Formula Abarth: the first rank based on 1 car only. We've chosen the most used combos for this car (We've chosen the Formula Abarth as first single car rank, since it's the most used car so far)

We will keep on adding more ranks in the future, and add more features to this.
Coming up:

  • Info about PRO ranks in the profile page
  • more PRO ranks
  • levels per each rank (Rookie, Amatour..., Alien) with target Total Rank Time for each level
  • handicap rank (GPL style) with benchmark time (as soon as the AI will be out to set benchmarks)
  • PRO rank filter in the normal rank page

You can access to the new features from the Rank Menu
http://www.radiators-champ.com/RSRLiveTiming/


Here are the settings to compete in the PRO rank. The one marked in orange are the one mandatory.
