Somatosis created the topic: Hi
Evening All,

Long time off liner here, looking to get some online experience. Tonight I joined in for the GT3 round at Silverstone. First off, thanks to Chris P for the referral. Online has been a little intimidating prospect (not to mention logistical impossibility due to time constraints) but tonight's experience (although thwarted as you'll see below) was amazing - what a great bunch of blokes! Huge thanks to Rob for helping me get started, well almost!

I managed to join the xfactor server for practice last night and right up until this afternoon all has been well for my ageing, but still functional Logi DFP.

Getting into qualy tonight, an odd problem - nothing on the dash. I could see the wheel move and hear the gear select but no throttle response. Rob went to great lengths to help me out, even creating a separate TS channel and we troubleshooted a lot of things but to no avail (RF2 calibration screen was fine).

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make the start of the race so looking forward to catching everyone for the next one.

UPDATE - Offline test netted the same result. If I start from the garage with AI control all is fine and race start is fine too. I wonder if online race start would have had the same result...

Anyway, really appreciate everyone's warm welcome and hope the race went well. I'll post this to the studio397 forum and see what gets turned up..

Somatosis replied the topic: Hi
ok I think I know the problem and boy is my face red! I set RF2 up for my son this arvo, he's way too small to reach the pedals properly or do anything really so I turned all assists on so he could cruise around a bit.

In turning everything back off I didn't pay enough attention to 'auto start engine' which I had previously left on.

Turns out ignition is a fairly integral part of getting the crank going..

G'day Somatosis, welcome to online racing, it certainly can become addictive fun.
Don't worry about the little mishap with the starter, I bet your not the first to do that or the last.
Hope to see you practicing online aswell, there's usually someone on most nights.
