    Hey there,

    I'm a RF2 player since couple years already, however it's only recently that I begin to take it to next level with racing league, so I need to be a lot more consistent and clean in my racing.

    However, I got a pretty strange problem which is kind of a bummer when racing. I'm using the BMW M4 GT3 car and I can't see the brake light of the McLaren 720S turn on when they are braking. So no need to tell you that it doesn't help with my clean racing. As you can see on the picture, I'm on Road America, every car is braking hard, however there is not braking light that can be see.

    I've tested driving another car and the issue seems to really be when driving the BMW and following the Mclaren. I can see every other braking light of the other car. I got a ok pc build with a 3080. The only graphics option I'm running lower than max is Opponent detail on high and Post effect on medium. I've tested with ultra Opponent detail and nothing change.

    Is anybody experience the same problem with the BMW and McLaren or even other cars ? Thanks a lot

    if someone can confirm that this issue occurs on his RF2 game too or if not, I will just uninstall my game and reinstall it

    Many of the first batch of GT3 cars(which excludes the 720S, it came later) had very thin tailights and seeing the pixels was often problematic. That has improved over time. But this is different. Just for testing sake, to verify it's the windscreen causing the issue, drive the same car and use an ....(I almost HATE to say this) an exterior view.

    However, I've just remember that the light are showing ok in the replay. If it's a problem with the windshield, do you have an idea which file to edit ? Are you able to test it on your side if you have time to confirm that it's a not a problem with my own game ? Thanks a lot

    a brief test showed I could see the 720S brake lights from outside the Bmw M4, but could not from inside the cockpit.

    Yep same on my side... That's really unfortunate. Honestly, I was hopping that someone just say that it was good on his side and in this case, at least there was a solution to fix it. Now I guess, we just have to wait on Studio 397

    I even test on another "fresh" install computer, no mods whatsoever. In the race there was the BMW M4 which is my driver car, the Mclaren 650S and 720S. The brake light of the 650S are fine, I can see them perfectly. However, still, the brake light on the 720S doesn't show.
