    All Instruments dissapear

    have a look on the "F" key. It hides/shows all instruments while racing. I never tried to keep it to the end, so i don't know if this is also the reason it did not show stats screen. hope that helps. kr.

    road to sarasota

    Hello, I only reconnect now with the forum. thanks you very much for your thanks in msg or DM. It has been such a great moment, and imo the best of it, has been meeting the 7 other guys in real life after racing against each others for the last 2 years. I really feel live racing in the same place, although not easy to organize is a great thing. Any of the 8 person in the room could have been the winner in the winner take all final race, and I had the tiny bit of luck that let me take the lead to the finish line. But i am also very proud of this win. Regarding the live streaming yes it is very unfortunate, especially with the last hour decision, but the reason is due to the constraints (state own building) of the arena we played in and they (3rd party streaming provider) did not want to take any chance to alter the races by cloagging the network with the uplink video stream or stream in very low quality. (alternative solution were not possible in reasonable cost). It may sound odd in my mouth to say but VR team has been very good over there. We had a full feedback session with all 8 persons, and I am really under the impression that 1) they agree on many/most of the points we provided to them ( (including SRR) , and 2) want to fix them once the route du rhum is past. Also wordsailing team has also been great with everyone of us and have renewed their committed to esailing, so I really feel there will be more great events to come and be more organized than this year O in easiling. We also had the chance to go for a real sailing with Torben Grael, and Sofia Bekatorou for example, and be part of the Gala that announced the sailors of this year, and it was a great fun. @1000milliardsdemile at the beginning of the video we all enter one by one and they say which boat we sail. Finally some of the players may help grow esailing on their respective countries, so maybe this may bubble even more. i am consolidating links and infos with this twitter account, twitter.com/l1inshore if any useful to someone. Thanks Again. L1.

    Probably a useless piece of decoration :) as well as the forever pride of "first" esailor world title.

    Moyennes des points et DNF

    la réponse courte c'est oui c'est "normal" .enfin c'est conforme à ce qui est dit. la longue c'est : Une fois le quota de course atteint, seules les courses suivantes qui améliorent ta moyenne sont prises en compte. Mais attention les courses courues non prises en compte ont aussi un impact car elles augmentent le diviseur de ta moyenne et donc plus tu en fait, moins chaque nouvelle course impacte ta moyenne. en gros : tu as une moyenne de X sur Z courses. tu fait une nouvelle course, le résultat Y est supérieur à X, alors ta moyenne est augmentée de (Y-X)/(Z+1) tu fait une nouvelle course, le résultat est inférieur, alors ta moyenne ne bouge pas, et devient une moyenne X sur (z+1) courses. donc par exemple dans ton cas en supposant que ta 20 éme course ait été de 3eme ( 52 pts ) ta moyenne de 39,5 sur 19 courses, passe à 39,5 + (52-39,5)/20 soit, 39,5+ 0,625 soit une moyenne de 40,12 sur 20 courses. pas certain que mes explications sont très claires...

    Number of races per challenge

    But the obvious goal is to drain all greenish coins...

    Number of races per challenge

    Yes this is plain slaughterhouse.
  18. meme avant... parce que si les plays sont comme ca c'est clair que ca va etre le championnat de la chance...
  19. Vous utilisez sur VRI un bateau différent de votre nom sur le forum , ce thread permet de vous révéler ( si vous le souhaitez... )
  20. welcome @Macphysto!
  21. Il faut avoir le mot de passe :) je pense que c'est un tournois/demonstration physique organisé à AArhus par world sailing, et pas ouvert au web. mais je me trompe peut être. my 2cts
  22. the new '15' is just a lame bug of the rule engine. Previously they were only effective in pre start but now they are everywhere... i can cope with some minor differences with RRS provided that they are consistents. but right now it is a lottery. my best one : both startboard, downwind no overlap, following each other, the forward boat jibe to port, the following boat does not nothing and touch the port boat.... guess who get the '15' penalty...

    Actually VR downgraded the maneuverability when they adjusted for the eswc. I believe WS is thinking paid upgrades are only 'fair or ' color customization'' as per inaugural talk and not a must pay to win (more than 15% speed improprement - eg > 1nd ) that need 1,5year to achieve doing intense daily sailing in non paying mode. in truth, this is very dodgy and questionable behaviour from a body like ISAF.

    Upgrade system

    well yes you are also one of the few, but there aren't that many other. And there canot be that many as speed is so different.

    Upgrade system

    well most of us would be ready to pay some fair fee to VR ( but currently the system is indeed a disgrace ) and yes i also sail one design for this very reason. Actually epicure is the true one still currently sailing levels from tanks, as aless or coulou did pay the BIG VR tax. Personally i am still in between and moslty because VR's bug on first challenge ( i had to buy some downwind to compete upwind with level 15 ) anyhow vr do'nt care, so if you want to voice out your opinion, it should be outside this forum i am afraid.
