Hi guys I recently trialed assetto corsa with a triple screen setup which looked amazing however there was a problem.
I found that when lapping circuit of Americas I was nearly 4.5 seconds slower than the fastest guy and I couldn't figure out why so after talking to a few ppl I decided to do a test.
I tested with 3 screens lapping at about 2.11
Then I tested a single screen and was a whopping 4.5 seconds quicker doing a 2.6.089 now it got me thinking.
If screens dictate your lap time does your pc also determine this meaning is racing online really as competitive based on skill as we thought.
If you have an expensive rig you will go quicker.
Lesser rigs are at the back.
Thoughts ppl please.

How much time have you run with triple monitor? When I switched to triple, it took me a few days to get use to it, I was like 2-3 seconds slower at the beginning, but once I get used, I'm faster. Also, it is very important that you change your filed of view when running 3 monitors.

What is your CPU, Ram and GPU? What are your monitors?

hmmm I don't know then... Have you tried to drop your graphic settings?
Maybe you could have a talk with iceman. I think he is running 3 monitors on AC.

I'm sure I have enough too run 3 monitors s but do you need a lot of reserve memory too anyways I've gone back too 1 (running game ) now seems a lot better genes the lap times .

Does iracing graphics match those of assetto though? I still  find it strange that it effects lap time and not graphics unless the two are related ?
Which brought me too the conclusion does the pc you run ultimately effect how fast you are ?

Not suppposed to effect how fast your are... I'm pretty sure you'll have your answer by lowering your graphics. Try to run it at minimum.

minimum looks really bad feels bad having a top graphics card and running things at minimum lol its ok ive gone back to using a single monitor now shame really made defending positions real easy maybe i will go back to it when i understand it a bit better and it wont serve me very well next season .in the meantime feel free to test it yourself always good to have a 2nd opinion.

May be a total off-topic, but here in Estonia, we have a new trend of "live VR-competitions" and I attended "Dirt Rally" event with my friend. Apart from what was a really true experience, I just can´t match my times at home with my rig(mid high-end :D ) and absolutely same thing with my friend. He won and I was 3rd(I´m not a rally driver lol), but at home, we both would have sucked big time...

Even after many tries, we both have to admit, that these VR & Multi-screen setups DO GIVE YOU AN ADVANTAGE, IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!

My friend, who actually took home the trophy, has tried SEVERAL times the same car&stage combos as in the competition and there is a 1,5sec gap, which he simply cannot beat...

Devices were the latest HTC Vive´s and we are both running single-screen setups at home...

cheers!

We had a new site just a couple of months ago, if you click on assetto league, instead of choosing season 3, you will see an option to choose season 2, that gives last season results, I don't think theres a way to get earlier data, Jerome is the man to tell you that.

Guys, I've got a question and I don't know if I'm in the right thread/topic.

I want to start a server of my own. I believe my portforwarding is correct with DCP/TCP and HTTP and such because ACServer says 'ok'.

But here's the thing; When I look up my server, it's there, but I can't join and DON'T see cars and it says: Unable to contact server: (name).

Please help. :)
