    Howdy folks,
    Time for some reheated news :D. Assetto Corsa 1.12 was released already 10 days ago, and among the consistent list of fixes and features, we also got some free content: The AUDI QUATTRO S1 E2 and the HIGHLANDS fictional track. Both are very welcomed in our simracing arsenal, of course.

    In my book, there is however another big "feature" I was waiting for quite some time: V10 tyre model for all cars. Yay !

    NOTE: read in the next post about a possible problem (CPU occupancy) some systems might get after the update.

    Here is the official release notes, and as usual the changelog:

    Featuring all-new FREE bonus content, including the Audi Sport quattro S1 E2, as well as our home made Highlands track!

    AUDI QUATTRO S1 E2
    Introduced back in 1984, the Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 revolutionized rallying. Just like the other manufacturers, Audi used the lenient homologation requirements to create a new rally car. All the car maker needed for homologation was a production run of a mere 200 cars.
    Blomqvist's spectacular, sideways driving style suited the Sport quattro perfectly. By flicking the tail out, the Swede overcame the natural understeer of the nose-heavy Audi. He won five of the twelve rounds and was crowned the 1984 World Champion. Mikkola and Roehrl also won a round, which was enough to clinch the constructor's trophy.

    HIGHLANDS LAYOUTS
    The perfect track doesn’t exist.
    That’s why we created one.

    Highlands - The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps.

    Highlands Long - An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long "Cabhag straight"

    Highlands Drift - A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The "tower lùb", guards the surroundings at the top of the hill.

    Highlands Short - The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro.

    All four layouts share the same starting positions and pit lane, as well as the first corner and final 2 corners.

    FIXES INCLUDE
    * Improved and updated V10 tyre model for all cars available
    * Improved and updated cars handling and chassis balance and inertia for all cars available
    * Brake fade for all vintage cars
    * Improved tyre wear and tyre graining algorithms taking more into account the load operation for each tyre.
    * General bug fixes and corrections and improvements all around.
    * Fanatec Leds and display now supported

    IMPORTANT NOTE: In case you get the "CPU OCCUPANCY > 99%" warnings after v1.12 update

    FOR PC/WINDOWS USERS

    With the new v1.12 update, Kunos guys have introduced a new section in the "controls.ini" file located in your "Windows Documents\Assetto Corsa\cfg" path called "[FF_SKIP_STEPS]", that manages the force feedback update rate. The default value is now "0" instead of "1" and it overrides the old value located in the "assetto_corsa.ini" file (in the Steam game folder). This brings a more detailed force feedback and a better driving feeling. If you experience "CPU OCCUPANCY > 99%" warnings, please tick "Half FFB Update Rate" in the the UI Options -> Controls -> Advanced and this will bring the value back to "1". Not all the steering wheels can manage the maximum update rate, so no worries.
    If you are using a very old steering wheel like the Microsoft Sidewinder or Saitek R440, or other hand-made ones, you need to open the "controls.ini" file, and set the "FF_SKIPS_STEPS" value to "4". It should look like this:
    [FF_SKIP_STEPS]
    VALUE=4
    This should solve any "CPU OCCUPANCY > 99%" warnings related to the force feedback refresh rate.
    Please always double check this value if you load controls profiles created before v1.12 update! In case, please create a new controls profile with the proper value!

    Please note: For further assistance, refer to the Official PC support forum: www.assettocorsa.net/forum
