    While making adjustments to mirrors, seat and assigning control buttons the system went to a blank white screen. I could hear the cars circulating but could not return to car or anything. In task manager I had the following, I ended one and it ended all. BTW the C8.R is AWESOME

    Similar situation when adjusting the graphics. (had a NOT RESPONDING next to the process for this one)

    Does the new UI have an option to end the current session and skip to the next? I looked but for the life of me cant find the option :confused:

    The red box with the person/shield icon. Just to the left of SINGLE PLAYER on this screen. Very top left corner.

    Yesterday I did the same. It runs very smooth but damn I feel lost with this new UI but I’m sure in 2-3 weeks I will learn it.

    Not sure I get that?

    In order to skip a session and move forward to the next stage, I need to click on what is commonly recognised as a 'back' button? That's bad UX/UI design; if I'd just sat through a map loading screen I'd be reluctant to to press back to move forward.

    Good call, I was looking at the wrong icon; I've no idea what the correct icon is trying to tell me from that pic, might need another pass at the visual hierarchy.

    I still don't understand why the launcher doesn't tell you what content you are missing from a server when it errors saying "Piss off and play another game because we don't want to tell you what you are missing so you can play this one". The first rF2 launcher was able to do it, why the hell can't the third one? It makes no sense that it doesn't tell you, this needs to be fixed.

    I also don't understand why the content manager isn't able to tell you what is in a mod either.

    Come on, this is just basic stuff.

    I spent some more time with the new UI this time on our server with another driver.

    Mostly positives realized tonight.

    When there are multiple tracks enabled, we can now select which track to go to next from a pulldown list. Before it was possible for an admin to do that by typing the obscure shorthand for the specific track.

    The gears graph (speed vs rpm for each gear) is huge and very legible. It's terrible in the previous UI, most of the time I couldn't even see the plot.

    In fact all of the screens and info are big and very legible, the tradeoff is more screens to navigate.

    Any change that you make from a saved setup remains in orange font until you save the set again. Makes it easier to navigate back to whatever you were tweaking.

    Feeling a little better about the Studio 397 effort now.

    I can change damping and other stuff.

    Only the gear ratios have this issue for me...

    - with new UI, it crashes, it freezes, it's slow, it's white and hurts my eyes, and it has not all the Old UI features.
    - with old UI, it redownloads all everytime i launch the game....

    I really don't understand who has worked on the UI during the last 4 years, a single 14 years old student not paid or what ?

    Now I can't play the game, I don't want the new UI, and I can't use the old UI.
    Refund me all my content please or fix the old UI version.

    If it’s paid S397 content, it’s by design. It will re-download your purchased content (in my case Formula E related stuff) even when you unsubscribed from the workshop items. On the old UI, there was a workaround. On the new, there isn’t any (of which I know).

    I take it you're the 14 year old student?

    it's ok, I had to reinstall and now it doesn't redownload everything.
    I can use the Old UI, but the new one is a big big shame (slow, and missing many features from the old one)
