iRacing

Status Page

– A brand new System Status page has been added for iRacing!

– – Click on any status report box to get a detailed timeline of that service’s performance for the past hour.

– Any current system-wide notifications will be displayed at the top of the page; such as planned maintenance, downtime, or a severe issue we need our Members to know about.

iRACING UI: (5.06.04)

General

– Fixed a rare issue where the iRacing UI could take the operating system’s focus when the connection to the iRacing servers was suddenly severed due to an authentication issue.

– Fixed an issue where the iRacing UI could visually lock-up if it was opened from Membersite when it was already open.

Hosted Racing

– A new Session type, Warm-Up, may now be selected with some event types!

– – A Warm-Up Session precedes a Race Session, and gives drivers, teammates, broadcasters, and race officials some extra free-form time before the big event starts.

– – A Warm-Up Session may be used in Hosted Sessions that contain both a Practice and Qualify Session.

– – When selected, this new Session type includes a time duration slider and an input field for the new Warm-Up period, as well as the ability to set Track State and Time of Day parameters.

Membersite

General

– Fixed an issue where opting out of email settings was not being saved correctly.

Hosted Racing

– A new Session type, Warm-Up, may now be selected with some event types!

Simulation

Race Servers

– While a Race Server is creating splits and sessions for an event, no new registrations will be allowed for that event. This process occurs when the window for registering for an event as a participant closes. This is particularly helpful for large-scale special events and team events where dozens of splits and sessions are being created at the same time. Stopping new registrations will reduce the load on the scheduler. Further registration and joining of the sessions, for spotting, spectating, etc., will be allowed again after the sessions have been fully created and launched.

– – This change has no effect on members who register for an event before the splits and sessions are created.
