Transparent Trainer (Ghost racing)
How long has this been in there?
Just found it in the settings menu
ah just seen it in the read me - doh!
anyway heads up for these that do not read the read me
How do you get it to show up?
I put it on Best and the default .5 sec lead
go on track and it is so transparent that I can't see :-))
It shows up after first full lap.
it does not show for me, i have try the same setings: I put it on Best and the default .5 sec lead
online, single, public and private, and make 4 laps, and i cant see the ghost car
I've noticed transparent trainer doesn't work with megane at portugal.
Also will the transparent trainer eventually be removed from the competitors list? Thanks.

It was in the code much earlier on, maybe before public got hands on the software, but was removed as it was broken by newer code. Now they have finished the area which broke it, perhaps, so brought it back in, and will probably be working on it in dribs and drabs until it's working without fault.

Yes, they have just reintroduced ti and will continue tweaking and editing it's functionality.
Set a better time and there you go! No problem!
I agree it would be nice to have a few possible ghosts to choose from like:
-best time ever (ok this is covered)
-best in current session (i guess that would resolve your problem)
-best in different conditions (sunny/partially wet/wet)
-best per session type (practice/qualifying/race)
-best per real road (green/full rubber/anything between)
Besides it would be great if we could reset that and also to be able to choose any of our laps to serve as a ghost.
Like you said - it is funny how for every new feature we wish ten times new features
Very good idea to reintroduce it and very useful when I drive in singleplayer!
That is a known bug, ghost is basically an AI driver - if you race with some AI and ghost you will notice that other AIs respond to the ghost as it were a real AI (they do not drive through it). Anyway Tim has already confirmed this so it will be fixed in some next version.
The TT seems very much like a WIP so I wouldn't sweat too much about it at the moment.
cannot see ghost car WHY?

On lime rock park no chacains it dosnt work in " fastest lap" move but does for "previous lap", on the chacain versions of lime rock it works , not tested on many other tracks, I'm assuming its because if beta?
