dual core & slow autoclutch - clytle374 - 08-06-2006

Hey is there a way to speed up the autoclutch delay? It seems like my gandma shifts faster.

Also how much of an undertaking would it be to launch the physics engine on a second core? Not that is really needed, yet.

Also joystick calabration locks up my machine, is this due too 18 axis?

Hy Cory,

The shift delay depends on what car you drive. If you take the FF or the T73, they will shift allot faster then the XS or MI. The shift delay is indeed a bit long with some cars, but thats because their real counterparts also shift slow.

Physics engine is not my cup of tea so can't answer that for ya.

As for joystick calibration, what machine do you have? Windows, Linux?

Cheers,

Dick

Linux, gentoo, amd64

I use a realflight G3 controller, It is a RC style controll (for a RC aircraft sim, ) It also allows a real transmitter to be pluged in. so 5axis for the controll and a bunch for a real TX, not used but still visiable.

The car in question is the G4, seems like it should smoke tire in any gear change if the gas is pinned down.

The amount of time to shift gears is dependent on a few things. One is the time after you press the shift and disengage clutch button (disengaging the clutch happens automatically in 0.2 seconds) and the engage clutch button. These are usually defined as the down and up motions of the same button. Another factor is this line in the car's definiton file (G4.car):

Code:
shift-delay=0.10

This is the amount of time it takes to move the shift knob around. Also important is the amount of time over which the clutch is automatically let out. This is currently defined at 1.0 seconds if you're in 1st and 0.2 seconds in any other gear. All of the clutch settings in the car's definition file also affect how quickly torque is transferred and the maximum amount of torque that the clutch will transfer without slipping. Finally, if you have the autoclutch on, that will override the clutch setting when your revs are below about 2000.

If you use an analog clutch, these should all become non-issues as I believe it would override any automatic clutch stuff.

I'd encourage you to tweak with these settings in G4.car as they are most likely incorrect:

Code:
sliding = 0.27
radius = 0.05
area = 0.12354
max-pressure = 4.0e5

and see if you can't get the response you'd expect.
