Build 190 (11/4/12, Senior Manager)

  • Added in m_windscreenReflectionScale values to weather conditions missing it. Added m_windscreenReflectionScale to currentstate info in tweak it
  • Fixed track-specific personal best received from the server when loading into an event race overwriting event-specific personal best. We display track-specific PBs on the loading screen for now, so they should be stored as those into the local profile. 
  • (This bug prevented improved times set on an event from being uploaded to the server unless they also beat the track-specific personal best set on the event’s track, in the event’s car)
  • When a new personal best is set during an event race, also update the track-specific leaderboard with the same time.
  • Wisconsin Raceway – Fixed Carrousel AI running wide off into grass problem. Gradually moved corridors in and reduced attempted AI speed at the critical point by 10%
  • Florence – Added support for 40 Cars. added 20 pit spots and 40 start spots. Updated TRD’s. (still need garages doors opened for garage support)

  • Updated windscreen reflection defaults
  • Updated night windscreen reflection settings for all conditions
  • Modified moon dome shader to scale the depth value down, as this is the "correct" way to do this. Fixing this stops the moon from flickering on 360. Tested on PC, looks fine, relevant code path is not used by PS3
  • Fixed grandstand placement at Chesterfield; added intial crowd sound
  • Added crowd env sound for: Belgian forest circuit and Bologna reverse
  • Added audio to Badenring tracks
