    You might be wrong. Headphones can give the most immersive experience because the software can better control exactly what we hear and how we hear it.

    Surround speakers are designed for movies. There's a center speaker for dialog and main sounds while the satellites are for ambient sounds. The subwoofer can give more realism though when it's capable of playing very low frequencies below the hearing range. But that can be added to a headphone setup too.

    Yes, servers must be updated to 1128 to use with RC.

    I tried the RC for 2H. Nice Sound Engine improvements but yes as you mentioned the inside engine sound is very low.
    I’m having more stuttering in this RC and it’s a general rfactor2 big problem… bad stuttering in VR and low FPS.

    Please finally add the option to change the AI strength in the race again. It's very annoying to keep stopping and restarting the race.
    When I saw that from now on you can choose your opponents in single player, I was very pleased.
    Butt also very quickly sobered up when I realized that the opponents can still only be selected in the left column.
    It is still not possible to select the desired paintwork separately before the race.
    And I also noticed the micro stuttering in VR mode.
    Otherwise great!

    we always ASSUME any experienced user always turns all the driver aids off. But then we never ask if one got in-inadvertently turned back on by accident. Sometimes the most basic answer is the one least offered.

    Of course I have all the aids off, it was turning on acidently.
    Little suggestion can you add a bind for driving line, it will be a perfect new feature.

    I am not sure my would work (as I don't update servers to betas anymore), however, it's worth a shot :)

    Unfortunately still the same result whether I try and update (says it's already up to date) or delete the install and start afresh. Never had this before. There are a few servers running the RC build so it's something I'm doing wrong. Tried the default batch files and a few others to no avail.

    Immersive will let you hear what you're looking at correctly.

    If you ever watch cars from trackside cams or move cameras to new positions you'll notice the difference.

    You quoted the wrong post. Can you try a little harder?

    But what should I put on the microphone? What configuration? I don't know if I'm explaining myself well

    Not sure If this Is due to the RC, but It didn´t happen before I tried the RC version. In the UI I get random diming onscreen. The screen dims (darker) a little for a few seconds and goes back to normal. It does It more then once. It´s happening In both versions, stable and RC

    I don´t see this In any other sim I am using so I don´t think It has to do with my GPU or monitor. Specs in my sig...

    So they post it on Discord but not here, why not here as well?
    "Was using one posted on Discord "+app_update 400300 -beta release_candidate validate +quit"


    This worked for me...

    steamcmd +force_install_dir ../rFactor2-Dedicated +login anonymous +app_update 400300 -beta release-candidate validate +quit

    SS
