    Thanks alot for the help you all! Yes my c drive has only 16 gb of 110gb space free so that could be one thing. I also have found out that nearly every driver was outdated and i was way behind on windows updates that was the reason why i couldnt disable the gaming mode. I will also use the space sniffer now to see what i can delete on the drive to free more space!
    EDIT:
    So as it turns out Beam ng uses the most space because of the mods is there a way that you can store the mods on a diffrent drive but still have them usable? Or is there going to be a feature like this someday?

    Technically infinite % profit, since it was free to start with.

    Typically in software development I have found Source Control to be a "nice to have" utility.

    Today (for the first time) source control just full on saved my ass. I found a memory corruption bug in my game, and if it weren't for being able to download old builds, and see what has changed; I'm not sure that I would have caught it. Turns out the bug was introduced 3 weeks ago, on a totally benign looking section of settings menu code. And that was causing a bug to occur reliably in a totally unrelated section of gameplay code.

    EDIT: Turns out that was also a ruse. That code being the problem, was actually a symptom of another bit of code in the menu system creating a problem.

    not far off!


    So if i were to make a torque converter 'thing' (controller) then there are a few oddities i've noticed you can go all the way to 3rd gear in an allison and have the torque converter unlocked, normally it locks in 2nd, but at light throttle openings, it holds to 3rd (where it locks then into 4th locked too). Also on some allison gearboxes, there is a 1st gear lock! Interesting stuff!

    The great thing about Alaska weather is that it's customizable. If you think it's too cold and dreary, have someone give you an outdoor task you really don't want to do and all the clouds will flee from the sky. If you think it's too hot, just schedule a race or a classic car show and watch as the sky unloads on you!

    While I had been enjoying Dirt Rally 2.0, I had always been aware that its full usage of my steering wheels 1080deg of rotation was a bit much. However, since there are no options in the settings to fix this, I had assumed I was SOL*. Turns out that buried in a sub menu that is barely even visible, there is actually a calibration wizard which allows you to calibrate wheel rotation.

    20190614225734_1.jpg So if you click the wheel ('a' button on xbox pad), it takes you to the steering wheel settings

    20190614225750_1.jpg However, there are no options to change the steering wheel lock anywhere in here. In any of the submenus.

    20190614225742_1.jpg Turns out, that from the first image, you have to press triangle ('y' on xbox pad) on your controller to access the "device options", then click the "calibrate" button, which serves no other purpose other that to calibrate the degrees of wheel rotation. WHY Codemasters? Why is that not in the same place as the FFB settings, or the "advanced" settings, where you allow for the configuration of steering linearity?

    Its been a really long time since I last saw UI design that reached this level of dumb.



    One thing is for sure, not having to swing the wheel 1080deg lock to lock makes the game quite a bit easier and more enjoyable.



    *I am aware I can change my steering wheels global settings inside its software, but if I had to change those settings (or profiles) each time before using the wheel, I would probably end up playing far less racing games than I already do.

    Mostly figured out the model format for Rally Championship 2000, as well as the way it stores lighting information

    Having less luck with level files :(

    Today was a small car show where i live and my dad and i went there to look at cars. Whilst looking at the newest 3 series we noticed water under the paint then we looked at other bmws and they all had water boubles at some points of the car we then asked one of the sales people who immediatly said that we should shut up because we dont know anything about cars just because we are no mechanics!? Im no sales expert but thats definatly no way to treat potential customers espacially for me because i wanted to get one at some point but im guessing ill get a older one as theyre proper bmws

    Is this under the doors that you are talking about? Many car brands use a special bumpy paint to protect against chipping and rust. Similar to the image shown below.

    Two months ago I estimated my brake pads would last until august or longer.

    Decided to verify last week, just in case - it turns out a few dry weather runs have worn them waaay more than expected.

    Rear pads look usable still. Worn vs new:

    Front pads on the other hand...
    2019-06-18_19-09-59_DSC_0009.jpg
    They've had difficulties dissipating all the heat with so little remaining pad mass to absorb it.
    Heat seems to have gone straight to the backplate, which fell from the pad as soon as I removed the caliper. Whoops :|
