0.6B8 is NOT compatible with version 0.6B
0.6B8 CAN play replays from version 0.6B

You cannot upload hotlaps made with 0.6B8 because it is a test patch.

Please keep a backup of your LFS.exe from 0.6B so you can easily go back if there are any problems.


Changes from 0.6B7 to 0.6B8 :

FIX : Two instances of LFS no longer write to the same MPR / SPR
Connection now closes if no packets are received for 40 seconds
SHIFT + N : sound on / off now works in multiplayer screens
Pit exit direction arrow now works in open configurations
Updates to Latvian, Serbian, Indonesian, Romanian
Latvian training lessons now included


Changes from 0.6B6 to 0.6B7 :

FIX : Guests were often kicked after another took over their car
Instead of "LAG (seconds)" now "username (seconds)" is displayed
Timer bounding increased to 30 sec for normal LFS (graphic mode)
Timer bounding stays at 6 sec for non-graphical dedicated hosts


Changes from 0.6B5 to 0.6B6 :

Repaired most translations with a small update on one line
FIX : Guest disconnected if host used InSim IS_PLC packet


Changes from 0.6B to 0.6B5 :

Improved multiplayer system :

Game only needs host packets to continue processing
Quicker joining to host - no waiting for other players
No waiting for packets from players with slow connections
Leaving a host is instantaneous even if a guest is connecting
Longer timeouts avoid disconnection due to short interruptions

(NOTE : no change to physics - old replays are still valid)

Other changes :

Two new translations : Indonesian and Romanian
New hacker protection applied to multiplayer packets
Improved checks on validity of user names while connecting
User names now confirmed with master server after connection
OOS / CPW messages now show user name instead of player name
Removed message "Got master packet" from network debug output
No buffer overflows from hangs or operating system time changes
User name in brackets now shown at end of disconnection messages
New "Authorised" message on host links user name with ip address
Race setup screen /clear command can now only be used by admins
Ability of guests to vote or select tracks now enforced by host

InSim :

Added new leave reasons (CPW / OOS / JOOS / HACK) for IS_CNL
Change to in-game usage of IS_REO - only valid after SMALL_VTA

Fixes :

Custom view was not set to new car type on replay restart
Duplicate lines in scripts could cause unexpected results
Virtual speedo sometimes overlapped numbers (e.g. XRG km/h)
Circuit length is no longer displayed for open configurations
LFS could crash when displaying laps for fuel after short laps
Ready status in lobby is now checked when a player disconnects
Load WE1R on dedicated host - Checkpoint 1 path node not found
User's controller type was not shown after taking over a car
SHIFT+R near end of SPR could make cars swap between players


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS :

A FULL version of LFS 0.6B (or later) must already be installed

To install the PATCH using the SELF EXTRACTING ARCHIVE :

1) Move or save the patch into your main LFS folder
2) Double click the patch to extract it to that folder
3) When you see "Confirm File Replace" select "Yes to All"
4) Now you can start LFS in the normal way

NOTE : You can see if the patch is correctly installed when you run
the program (LFS.exe). At the bottom of the entry screen : 0.6B8

Irrita-me determinantemente a malta do LFS. Mexeram em qualquer coisita, com estes test-patchs, pela simples razão que uns tipos encontraram um bug monumental que permitia que sem qualquer credenciação se ligassem como admins num servidor e tomassem conta do mesmo. Como o pessoal se queixou, lá se mexeram e andam agora com estes test-patchs.

A única desculpa que o Scawen Roberts tem para o abandono a que vetou o LFS, se se confirmarem os boatos que têm sido falados em meios de comunicação e que não foram desmentidos até agora, é o facto de poder estar envolvido na equipa que desenvolve actualmente a física de pneus do PCARS. Só assim lhe perdoo.  :biggrin:

Era quase perfeito! Pena se forem apenas rumores...
