It's probably not an issue that can be solved by booting the network. I have two computers on the same network, one has this problem, the other not.

Most likely one is good and the other is bad due to caching effects. This has to be fixed on the game server end.

Hi.

This can for example happen when you have created fewer spawn points on the water than number of participants you are setting the race for.

Hi.

Penalty parameters are probably only for solo racing.
The start line is visible in Arcade mode, while it's invisible after the last minute in Tactical mode.

Re: Precision with locators

Hi Bronco :)
Will VSK use a locator file inside a skin zip file to work correcly or shall the locator file be unpacked in the Skins\Boats\BoatType directory ?
Unpacked.
And if it is unpacked, is it a problem to keep a copy of the locator in the zip file ?
No problem!

Re: Hosting for pleasure

If you're mad enough to try a "normal" start, and even crazy enough to press "p" when you're crossing the line of bargers boats, you'll be kicked, it's the law. LMAO! Why don't they play Trackmania if they don't care about the racing rules? And why don't they host with the rules...

Can someone explain this paradox: R18.1 says that R18 applies only between boats on the same tack. While R18.3 which is a part of R18 considers boats on opposite tacks. No, 18.3 does not concider boats that are on different tacks. They consider boats on same tack that WERE approaching the mark on o...

I wonder if they ever question what the meaning of life is... :roll:. And what the meaning of the VSK ranking is, other than a measurement of how many races you have done with the melges :idea:.

Would it not be better to go back to manual trim being faster and those who want a pure tactical race take the option for Auto trim. No that would of course not be better for the TACTICAL race mode. However you have SIMULATION race mode, which is for those who want to be master of the keys. I guess...

Can you expand on this ... in context to VSK ? I am not sure I get you point here. Constantly pressing up and down (out and in) keys on the keyboard in order to keep an indicator green, is not very much related to sailing. The skill you need for this is simply not a sailing skill. That's why we too...

You mean skill that previously separated the computer nerds from "ordinary people"... :D
Now the game most of all separates good strategists/tacticians from "ordinary sailors".

Hi Team,

I suggest you register at VSK Team Challenge at ITBYC.
http://itbyc.org/vtc/

This would be the best place to find opponents for challenges. The default boat type is RC44, but teams are allowed to agree to sail in any boat/conditions.
