Fixing a Bug
Fixing a Bug23.08.2022 18:38:06
Most of you noticed problems on Sunday - we explain what happened...
As you may know, DTWS series has undergone some changes, and DebiK is still adjusting things race by race.
One of these changes triggered a bug which prevented the DTWS series race on Sunday from happening and blocked other Season Series races from happening, as well as other game functions such as rating, training, etc.
CONSEQUENCES AND CURRENT STATUS
When DebiK started fixing it on Monday morning, some other unexpected things happened, such as races calculated twice with worn tyres and so on.
Those duplicated races, mainly Nations and Club Series ones, have been erased and recalculated as it was felt this was the fairest way. All the other functions are now working correctly and have been updated, such as prediction or rating.
As may you know MRC is not a game supported by a big business behind. Most of us volunteer our time to help get it better.
But sometimes these things can happen and the MRC Team in general and DebiK in particular try to react as quickly as possible.
We thank you all for your patience and we wish you happy racing!
As a professional software engineer myself, I know bugs are part of any software. Big businesses have multiple environments (dev, staging, production, etc.) to avoid this kind of thing but a small volunteer team like this likely cannot afford that kind of redundancy. Thanks to the team for getting things fixed and recalculating the important races.
(P.S. Need any additional developer help? I'd be happy to lend a hand. )

Off-season MRC private series25.12.2022 - Do you think that the MRC off-season can be a bit boring? Then i got the answer for you! I've made two private series, designed to replicate two real-life "off season" series. The toyota racing series is a racing series ta king place in New Zeeland taking place (in real life) in January and February, when most racing series have winter break. Many F1 drivers have previously raced there. In MRC, I've tried to replicate it as close as I can; the calendar is the same, the points syste... Show full release
Ford needs a Driver for Next Season!01.12.2022 - As per the title, Ford F1 needs a driver to take our second seat next season, and beyond is a distinct possibility. Next season will be an 'interesting' season as a lot of teams are being forced to tank due to the new engine and gearbox both having to be built this season. Ford is in this boat. I have no idea what the season will look like or how other teams will manage the build and their cars. As such if you feel your driver is a season too young or a season too old for F1, in this case you... Show full release

The end of Miller's career.17.10.2022 - Hi, friends! Today I discovered that I have been taking part in this game for more than eight years. This is a very long time. During this time, I managed to get married, get divorced, get married again and finally become the father of a wonderful baby at the beginning of this autumn. As for the game, I think I had a very good career, after all, two championships in F1 with different pilots, this is a pretty good achievement. But I realized for myself that I no longer have the same motivation... Show full release
The couple Kubica-Guerra takes the 50th victory in Formula 1!!!22.09.2022 - Statistics are made of numbers, and some numbers are so impressive that can become symbols, especially if they are related to wins in Formula 1. In current Formula 1 is not easy to win GPs due to high competitive level of opponents (we live in a top 5-6 teams age) and variable related to race strategies and random in qualify. For what mentioned above, the target reached yesterday by the couple of two Ferrari's drivers must be mentioned. With the last win in French GP Vasco Guerra reach... Show full release
