F1 ... Idea ?

29 September 2018 - 12:22 PM

so as we all know, it could be better.
and of late the discussion is about a 3d team car, if new teams don't enter.
my idea (i know, crazy, but hey they won't read this)  is to have qually with those teams that CAN field 3 cars, run qually as they do, but!
only the top 2 drivers of those 3 car teams can race :o

imagine... a driver that crashes out, (lew ham, seb vet)  NOT making the race!

if you know anyone in FOM, go ahead and forward my idea if you think it has merit ;)

Re: Win10 And Auto-Running Of "defender"

21 September 2018 - 09:14 PM

I've gotten annoyed at this 'defender' scan happening it seems when it wants. i thought i had it set to run in my 'off' hours....
now i wonder if has anything to do with screen freezes or disco's that occur while online racing!

The location of the Automatic Maintenance settings actually did change in Windows 10:

So this is where you have to go now to change the schedule for the Windows Defender Scheduled Scan task: Right-click on the Start button and choose Control Panel > Security and Maintenance > Maintenance > Change maintenance settings.

It’s been 3 years now, and there are still way too many people (including Microsoft documentation authors) who just can’t quite seem to get a grip on how this works. The fact that the controls for the scheduled scan went missing in the new Windows Defender user interface doesn’t mean that the feature was dropped and that you’ve been left to your own devices – it means that the scheduled scan was reengineered so that it now runs reliably without any user configuration. It’s now fully automatic just like the definition updates. So you don’t have to change any settings at all to get the scan up and running; and you certainly don’t need to add a trigger, or otherwise reconfigure the Windows Defender Scheduled Scan task. This is a system task, and you would be well advised to just leave it alone. Full Scans don’t need to be scheduled, but if that’s something that you really want to do, you can use the Create Basic Task Wizard.

Srmz/alternate Track Database

From SRMZ/Alternate track database

FTP access given to Stefan Roess

he has updated the latest released tracks with program covers, screenshots, maps, country flags (thx to Ginetto for your help), ....

And Bill was so kind to add two new features/buttons: "Movie" and "Replay".
For example see

The plan is to create (onbard) clips of the tracks and link to it on YouTube.
he will try to do so for new tracks and also for old tracks.
But as we have hundreds of tracks I will also link to already exisiting videos on YouTube showing a specific track.

So if you find a good video that shows a specific GPL track pls post here and I will add the link to the GPLTD.
Adding the link is done in 2 minutes. Posted Image

there's a whole series here but the idea is McLaren went looking for a Sim driver for their F1 team.
i just watched a 4 part series via cable.. but i think this gets the idea there.

for those of you who've been around long enough will recognize "Gregger Huttu"  who... ah-hem... i actually shared a starting grid with MANY years ago  :)
