Re: Whats your pc?

If you're dropping to 8 fps it's a software problem. Say you get a CPU that's 10% faster. That would get you to 9 fps if the CPU were the problem. When you get down to single digits it's usually because something isn't working right. There's a lot that can go wrong. Could be something isn't fitting ...

Re: FPS Drops

If it's only happening online try lowering your model texture detail setting. Could just be too many skins using up your texture memory.

Re: Traction

Pretty much. I'd be recording the lateral force at different speeds so I could use the numbers in the tileinfo file.

Re: Key server downtime tonight

I used "we" because that way it matches God's Final Message to His Creation.

(The server is back online btw.)

Key server downtime tonight

I have to take the key server and also the main web site down for a server upgrade. It should happen around 2 AM EDT and take under an hour. You won't be able to play online without key errors while it's down.

We apologize for the inconvenience...

Re: MXS Twitter

Anyone else had some SQL database errors tonight? Had 3 so far tonight, don't think I've had them before on this forum. At least not recently. Just tagging jlv for his attention. There's a bot called "Crazywebcrawler" that's hammering the site. I added a line for it in the robots.txt file...

Re: FPS Drops

If it's obviously useless like adware or something I'd disable it. Otherwise, try stopping it and re-test. If doesn't improve it's probably something else so re-enable it and try disabling the next one.

Re: Traction

The system is designed for modeling a mix of static and viscous friction. So most tracks will use settings that start high for the static friction, then dip down as the static friction breaks, then ramps up again as viscous friction takes over. One of these days I'm going to try dragging a tire arou...

The built-in editor saves in "%localappdata%\MX Simulator" (aka the personal folder).

Reinstall version 1.11 using the full installer. If you still have your BMT Micro email the links should still work and are automatically updated to the 1.11 version.

There are some decent recommendations here:

You definitely want to disable non essential startup programs and services.

Re: FPS Drops

Someone else had the same problem and it went away when he switched MXS to fullscreen. My guess is Teamspeak has a hidden overlay that's slowing things down.

Re: Mx Simulator on Consoles

If I ever get caught up I'll probably do a Mac port first. Not sure if there'd be a way to get all the user created content on a console so that might not be a good fit.

Re: Traction

If the traction is set to ramp up at higher slip speeds* you'll get there quicker if the bike is moving fast since a small slip at high speed will result in higher slip speed that it would at a lower speed. * "slip speed" meaning the speed of the contact patch in relation to the ground, wh...
