Build 942

Render:
  • HDR runtime bugfix for WMD-5195 exposure depends on screenresolution issue
  • Fix for some overwrite texturemaps with issues as blur and compression and fix for too dark bush
  • DX11: Luminance greyscale MSAA technique V2.0 (part of fix for WMD-5195 exposure depends on screenresolution issue)
Weather:
  • Lighting and weather edits: Thunder storm lightning settings and texture tweaked so less artefacts, night bloom tweaked for all conditions for more lit air look. Effect is bigger in wet and foggy conditions but all conditions have been tweaked, rain fall texture mips tweaked so that there are less drops on the lower mips, this helps reduce the drop clustering look when you get stray quads further away from camera, rain fall lighting tweaks to wtc and clamp added to the shader so that multiple headlights don't overlight the effect (render double checked shader and material change for this), rain fall keyframes tweaked so you should see rain fall slightly earlier when blending from dry to wet conditions, light rain now uses a seperate particle effect (the one created for snow but never used). This has less drops on the texture and works better for that condition, before there was no way to reduce the drop count without having less quads and then you get the bad drop cluster look., minor tweaks to night lighting to reduce the flat lighting look on the cars. Needs a diferent approach to sort properly but this helps a bit for now. some conditions have had their -32 and -24 elevations darkened slightly and fogs balanced better. duplicate sky texture keys added at -24 and -30 for some conditions to fix apex key bug tweaks to hazy at around 0 elevation as sun flare was too bright in cp, fix for missing texture listed in texture dictionary

  • Clear visible content of login page after login is complete to remove the visible flash between the end of the intro video and the fade into the game - WMD-5737

Online/Multiplayer:
  • WMD-5855: Fixed race finish countdown not starting properly in multiplayer because last lap results were not synced in time for the code that checked the countdown start. Implemented proper synchronization of per-sector times and "lap should count" flags. The sector times of remote participants are now correctly invalidated in the pit stop/pause UI when the remote participant cuts track or gets any other lap time-invalidating penalty. Fixed lap number not being synchronized correctly on races longer than 255 laps
AI/Pitstops:

  • Adds Weather Slot 1 Sprite and Weather Slot 2 Name to both the Pause and Pit Box screens. As per the JIRA bug 5559 though, these should be replaced with applinks for Current Weather Sprite and Next Weather Name
  • Added code that clears the gui camera data if the renderer is switched off. This will in turn prevent cross fading from happening when we enter the garages from a screen that did not have 3d rendering enabled. Fix for WMD-3269
  • WMD-4168: Default LapInfo board to display current sector times, and added behind the scenes enable/disable option, (this option still needs to be hooked up in the GUI).

Career:
  • WMD-5831: Player preset level drastically affects power of some cars in career
