Re: RC Bandit not mandatory

I am not in front of my PC right now to do a test, but an error message will be displayed, when RVGL will be started.

Something like "/cars/rc/body.prm can't be found".

I can give you more details and a screenshot/video in a few hours.

RC Bandit not mandatory

Online race hosts use the possibility of custom car folders, to force the availability of only some cars with the Random Cars mode enabled. Some of the folders inside /cars are mandatory, and can't be deleted. For example /cars/q , /cars/misc ,... Also the folder /cars/rc is mandatory, which is the ...

Re: Boat tracks

I've fiddled around a bit at a test-track, and already found out a few things. This are only the personal experiences I made while doing some tests. If you experienced something else, or have more technical background to some of my findings, please post. :) For testing, I've used Trixed' Tiger Tooth...

Boat tracks

Trixed released a boat some weeks ago, and this reminded me, that I had the plan to do a boat track some day. Theoretically, RVGL is already supporting boat tracks since some time. But here in this forum no information can be found about this topic. So I've created this topic, to discuss about this ...

Re: RVGL Ladder

Hello Re-Volters! We were racing a SNW 35 Exclusive event yesterday. Sadly we didn't reached the minimum amount of 8 players, so the event does not count for the Ladder. We inserted this rule, to avoid disproportionate results. The less players attend, the higher is the chance that not so good playe...

It seems newer Windows versions automatically do defrag. This is how it looks at my computer:

So this should not be the cause of the issue.

The file system is fragmented for sure, cause I never used the defragment application as provided by Windows. The filesystem was last formated in ~2015. Or maybe de-fragmenting will be done automatically in newer Windows versions? I’m not really up-2-date with what is the state of the art here nowad...

Re: RVGL Startup speed

I have found the issue.

In my main installation I'm having 461 *.rpl files in my replays folder.
In my test installation there was 0.

After moving the content of the replays folder, it only take 3 seconds to open RVGL 19.0430a also in my main installation.

Are you aware of this effect, Huki?

RVGL Startup speed

Since one or two versions, RVGL needs 5 times longer to startup then usual. I just tested it. RVGL 19.0430a takes 15 seconds to startup. For comparison, RVGL 19.0320a only took 3 seconds . Both versions had the same custom content installed when I tested it. I have 114 tracks in my /levels folder, a...
