    Great job Cselt. :)
    Improvements that we all want in new UI.. and maybe Studio-397 can implement!
    Thanks for sharing.

    I don't think that's easy to do, because the favorites loaded on page load and not on section selection.

    Looks like these days we receive new builds very quickly. So I modified my installer to patch the official jar file so I don't need to do it manually after every release. After a new version you can use the installer again and (hopefully) everything will be working just fine.

    Download:
    https://github.com/Cselt/rf2-better-ui/releases/tag/v2.3.1

    Donate me, if you like my work so I can spend more time on this project:
    https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=FMYT6S758CDUN

    Changelog:
    Code:
    Version 2.3.1
    ### Changed
    - Modified installer to pick official jar file and patch with Better-UI
    
    Version 2.3.0
    ### Added
    - Installer
    - Support latest rFactor2 release
    
    Version 2.2.0
    Added
    - Add countdown timer to lap limited multiplayer race events
    - Support latest rFactor2 release

    Will this installer work indefinitely, or do we have to update it with each new UI update that S123 does?

    You'll have to update it every time S397 launches a new update or build.

    You need to reinstall every time a new build is out. I don't necessarily need to do a new release every time a new rf2 release is out. (Which is a big help for me :D)

    the installer under the hood tries to find the rFactor 2 location in the registry. Looks like for some reason in your case that was not successful.

    So in the latest 2.3.2 release I fixed that, and added a prompt to ask for the location if it's not found in the registry.
    Please give it a try and let me know.

    would it be possible to show next session details about length in min/ laps.
    Because when joining a server I cant see in practice or qual how long the actual race will be.

    Hi Cselt,

    FEATURE REQUEST:

    Session Settings > Opponents Tab
    Add a 'BOOT AI' button and 'ADD AI' button instead of just blindly selecting all from the opponent Filter.

    Hi,
    We need to reinstall Better UI every time S397 launches a new update or a new build.

    I tried to look for an api to get session information, but unfortunately I couldn't find. :(

    About the new releases: yes you need to reinstall Better-UI every time a new rFactor 2 release is out.

    Wow, really impressive work! The thing which bothers me the most with the new UI is the replay-mode. The gaps/positions seem to be all over the place and useful information like throttle/steering-inputs and speed are missing. Is it possible for you to fix that?

    The replay is a great mess. I'll take a look, but I don't have high hopes about that.
    Adding inputs to the video is not possible.

    big shame to read this, but if you cannot do anything about it, not much to say really... other than S397 being numbnuts for taking out useful features for god knows what reason!

    I totally agree, I stick with the old UI for that very reason.

    Speaking of replay, since the "Watch" button on the top of the screen is only for viewing replays, and it's stupid for the new UI to have two buttons labeled "Watch" that do entirely different things, perhaps changing the top "Watch" to "Replays" would be a good idea.
