    I think it's possible to add, however I don't think that would help a lot. I'll check.

    That's actually not that bad idea, however you will still need to know the location of your installation. So I'm not sure how much it would help.

    You don't need any other file, just a single net.rfactor2.ui.framework.jar file

    Hey @Cselt, can a translation be made through this UI editing way you are using? I'd like to translate the new UI to spanish and want to know if it is possible.

    it would be great to be able to link the (old) translations in the new UI. Then we make the changes for new UI words.

    Babs ;)

    I have no idea about programming but it would be great to have the new UI english language "chunk". This way, I translate it and then we can ad the translated one to any new better UI release. I don't know if it is possible though.

    Nice piece of work thanks

    My current issue is when online and trying to vote through a session or restart etc I can never find the voting. If those buttons from the voting pop up could be on an additional tab alongside event info and camera with the chat visible?
    Or somewhere where at least you can see the votes or proposed votes as they are posted?

    Well, I can help with that! CarStat had a funktion to find where rf2 was installed, done by checking the winsows registry for the SteamApp 365960 (rf2). Here is the C# code:
    Code:
    try
    {
        using (var hklm = RegistryKey.OpenBaseKey(RegistryHive.LocalMachine, RegistryView.Registry64))
        using (var key = hklm.OpenSubKey(@"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Steam App 365960", false))
        {
            string rfactorloc = "" + key.GetValue("InstallLocation");
    
            if (!Directory.Exists(Path.Combine(rfactorloc, @"Installed\Vehicles")))
            {
                throw new NullReferenceException();
            }
    
            return rfactorloc;
        }
    }
    catch (NullReferenceException)
    {
    }

    That's a little bit problematic. With this new UI approach there is no single UI app, there are several small UI applications and for each app there is a localization. E.g.: there is localization for the start page, for the garage view etc.

    So if you would like to translate you need to add a lot of new translation files to several .jar files. And I think doing that from version to version would be a nightmare.

    A new version is available with the requested countdown timer to multiplayer race events.
    Unfortunately by default if you are in a lap limited multiplayer event you don't know how much time you have left until the pit lane is closes. BUT with Better-UI you'll get that information!

    This release also supports the latest rFactor 2 build.

    All you need to do, is to download the framework jar file and overwrite with the original one in the Bin directory.

    Thanks for your work :) I wanted to update to the lastest version just now, but the menu doesn't start anymore, I have a white screen and I'm stuck there. Am I the only one having this issue ? Is it due to the S397 hotfix of today ?

    @Cselt a weird request...do you think is possible to change tabs order from
    multiplayer>single player>competition
    in
    single player>multiplayer>competition?
    would be great, would gain more sense, if we could swap the order and let the UI load Favourite Servers only when clicking on Multiplayer tab...
    I don't know if doable but I suppose is worth asking :p

    Another quick release is here to support latest rFactor 2 version.
    BUT besides that I created a small installer so you don't need to bother any more with the jar files.
    The installer will read out the install location of rFactor 2 and will create a backup then replace the original jar file with the patched one.

    This is a small one...is it possible to display a count of opponents after selection of a class in customisation this would make selection of the number of ai opponents much quicker than having to manually count them assuming you want to set up a race just for that class or classes
