If you can’t remember it looks like all were stable. From my own experience I can’t say what happened yesterday unless a problem occured.
Is not that easy…
The most annoying problem is related to wireless wheels disconnecting ingame, so if you dont have any, you may have Stable version with 2020.4
If you have any wireless wheel, then It is solved after 2021.x versions, buuut you can clearly see that 2021 versions aren’t stable for all
And support for revision 2 was added in 2020.10.
2021.8 is the most stable.
2021.8 has some extra noise not only during idle as release notes suggest but also during under torque operations.
2021.7 is smoother in that regard.
Hopefully it’s just missing adaptive current measurement and not something else USB related that happened after 2020.10 when for a few releases we had some grainy feeling that required extra Recon filter.
I went back to 2021.7 due to the noise.
@Mika, do we know the cause of that noise, any chance to release hotfix just for that?
I’m on 21.7 and I just had the high-torque sound out of the blue while I was ingame, luckily not during a race tho.same as 21.8
2021.7 here and it’s mouse quiet, running recon 1 with all titles.
Which sim are you getting noise from, or it was just single time occurence?
it was Ams1, not sure if it was related to the sim or not. with 21.8 it happened in Ac and rf2, so it seems to happen randomly. ffb is fine, same as you.
We think its due to the “default” current measurement algorithms in this release. We have a servo drive fw build ready with better ones enabled, but of course need to test it first. It makes sense to build a good release, as many other things are ready as well:
- importing of classic profiles to the paddock without working with ini files
- upcoming “quick try” functionality for paddock
- some hw support things related to battling with global chip shortage
any idea about this high-torque sound?
AMS just like rF2 really doesn’t like ULL, do you use it by any chance?
nope, it causes too much oscillations without any benefit… i only use it in ac and iracing
With stock gyro AC doesn’t need one either.
SC2 Pro launch unit and I’ve been happily using v1.0.13 for quite a while now.
If there’s a good reason why I should upgrade, I’d love to hear it.
You can review release notes for all releases after yours to see if you benefit from any of the changes there.
I’d say from my ignorant outsider view until 2020.10 we had mostly useful fixes, things took more on experimental side since then with some core internal changes cascading in bugs that had to be fixed afterwards. 2021.7 had pretty much most gremlins worked out, or we can wait for the next patch Mika promised, seems like 2021.8 even with all the fixes is not that great due to the noise.
Mine makes noise nearly any time I turn it against torque, but with 2021.7 it’s dead silent at idle - (with 2021.8 it was making noise at idle)
Mine is super noisy on Recon 4-5, your statement makes me believe there’s been a difference in the manufacturing of these motors over time.
I wish I had yours!
Thank you @Andrew_WOT for mentioning this - I’ll try turning off Ultra Low Latency tonight!
It could be the case actually, I have heard people complaining about noise with the same settings. Well, coming from OSW background I am not surprised, not every motor is build exactly the same.
I am also on R1, besides single PSU there was also revision of controller board for R2, not saying it is the reason, but who knows.
May be with Recon v2.0 (if it ever happens) we wouldn’t have to worry about artifacts with higher values. Still think that simple averaging smoothing filter similar to what we had in MMos could have been beneficial in some cases. But I understand GD, extra filter, extra support questions, which to use, etc.
