    with SM running on my main rig PC and with the UI paused it looks like the reports worked just fine for tonight's online race.

    Hi Winzarten,

    can the Nordschleife already be represented as a map in ACC?

    Cool, thanks for the test. So it is indeed issue with the remote functionality.

    Should be, all it should take is complete a full valid lap. Just that 60+ grids force the app to always use the timing circle, becasue only 59 cars have filled world position in ACC data (acc shared memory limitation).

    Anyone here tried to use this telemetry software in real life racing?

    Hello Winzarten,
    I have a fundamental question about the software. I don't know if you can help me there, but you certainly have more idea than me. So, I like to use Second Monitor, it runs on a 2 screen with some ads, among other things, the map. It all works very well. Well, when I use another software to display an overlay hud in ACC ACC Drive for example), run on the mainscreen on the ACC, start to jerk both on the other screen and ACC. Can't you control two programs side by side with the ACC data? Is there a solution for this? I would like to use both together?
    Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to use two applications at same time with ACC.
    If the data look correct on both apps, and it's just that the app or game stutters, then there is some either some performance bottleneck, or some windows scheduling issue.

    Map driver animation in SM was one of the thing that had occasionally caused stuttering for me, but the recent version improved the performance there. You can try to disable it in the options, and see if the situation improves.

    CPU oder GPU?

    CPU is a Ryzen 7 7800 X3D and GPU an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT. I don't really believe in it.
    What means "windows scheduling issue"?

    For that system I also don't believe anything is a bottleneck. My app should be mostly cpu bound, as purposely I don't use any GPU acceleration. There is no way a 7800 X3D would be bottlenecking, as my 5800x isn't...and even my old 6600k could handle running the app with sims.

    Windows scheduling is widnows deciding when to refresh each window. All windows, even fullscreen, are in fact 'borderless' windows, so windows has the final word when the refresh takes place. In some situations, with multiple accelerated apps, on multiple monitors, with different refresh rates, there can be some frame pacing issues. Tbh, I don't understand the nuances of how window manages windows, and what is the relation with display drivers there...Thats way beyond my league.

    Hi Winzarten,
    that could be the problem, I have ACC and ACC Drive (overlay) on a 144 Hz monitor and SM on a 60 Hz monitor. SM alone on the 60 Hz monitor and ACC on the main monitor (144 Hz) run without problems. When the overlay from ACC Drive is added, it starts to jerk ...
