* Banned sessions no longer appear in private session list.
* Reverse gear is now disabled for the first two seconds of a network race to stop players reversing off the start line.
* Added ability to change collision types in all sessions (not enabled in Demolition Derby).
o Forward Only (this is the normal behaviour for Ranked/Unranked)
o On (Collisions are always on)
o Off (Always off).
* Numerous anti griefing checks to turn off collisions when players are griefing.
* Fix for distance shown in distance online stat.
* A warning message is now shown the first time you enter system link.

Game - general:

* Xbox 360 achievement fix.
* Several optimisations and performance improvements.
* It is now possible to look left and right while in bonnet camera.
* Fix for a hang when selecting a gear outside the gears available on the vehicle (this was possible with H-Shifter)

PC Specific Changes

* Added support for Xinput wheel and Logitech Rumblepad 2, including default action map configurations.
* Adding ability to use H-pattern shifter in custom configuration by allowing configuration of gears 1 to 6 and reverse. Same for boost.
* Fix for missing Force feedback on Vista.
* Added the ability to override the controller type, so that if the game fails to auto-detect it, users can specify it themselves.
o Symptoms of the game failing to detect the appropriate controller type are:
? On a pad, handling is too twitchy, appears to steer "lock-to-lock".
? On a wheel, the input lags and the linearity slider doesn't appear to have an effect.
* Changing microcode optimisation level for NVIDIA 7xxx series graphics cards to reduce a pause when using each shader for the first time.
* Adding support for triple head displays.
* Graphical corruption fix when using multiple GPU's.
* Network chat text made less obtrusive.
* Numerous on-going compatibility fixes.
* Improvements to shadows for certain resolutions/aspect ratios.
* Profiles are now flushed to disk when they are written to reduce the chance of them being corrupted if the PC dies.
