View Full Version : replay quality
29 April 07, 00:36
I have a question. Why is it that the replays are not as smooth in rFactor as they are in GTR2?? The replay in GTR2 is just about as smooth as Gran Turismo. I have good frame rates for the most part, but GTR2 just replays better. Is there any way to improve this?? And yes I have the replay fidelity set to the highest setting which is supposed to be the smoothest, right?

Replay export settings for your .plr file
[ Miscellaneous ]
Key Repeat Rate="1"
AVI export width="800"
AVI export height="600"
AVI export framerate="30.00000"
AVI export quality="95.00000"
AVI compressor fourcc="xvid" // Changes compression algorithm

If my screen is 1680 1050, should i change the 2nd and 3rd lines to these settings?

Welder, no probably not. Those settings are for outputting a video file. You probably wouldn't want a 1680x1050 video (I suppose you might, but it would be huge and take a while to output).
Are you trying to produce videos, or are you just talking about watching replays in the Fridge? When you say smoother are you talking about overall framerate or the sort of 'jittering' that sometimes happens?
I've never really noticed a difference between replay fidelity in rFactor and GTR2, but you may well be right. Sometimes things like daylight acceleration can make the replays go funky.
There is a setting Replay Fidelity in the .PLR, mine is set to 4. It doesn't say, and I don't know what the scale is, but it might go higher although I doubt it. It's possible SimBin altered the replay code to increase the fidelity.

No, you do not want the replay on the highest setting. That makes it to record more data such as camber and more data per second. If it is not smooth on your computer, then it is better if you put settings LOWER to make it more smooth. Then your computer will not have to do so much work.

AVI compressor fourcc="divx" // works too, any FourCc encoder will work

xvid works well
