    rFactor 2 has the best FFB and physics without doubt, and now, it has the best graphics. The render is very crisp :

    not blurry like ACC or the other recent games (even if at 4K ultra the blurriness is gone)

    not cartonish like Automobilista 2

    Maybe now it needs the car reflection at 60fps (they seem to be at 30fps), and shadows update, but I have not found more realistic. And of course the sounds too need an update.
    Hard time for the challengers.....

    Let's enjoy a new year with the King.

    In VR I deactivated shadows for performance reasons, now on my full HD screen I activate them in ultra (shadow blur too).

    And I find that the shadows are problematic, the display distance is 2 times too low (LOD?).
    The shadows of the barriers are also poorly displayed. I wish they would further improve color/tone/color temperature/gamma + shadows + rain performance greatly improved rendering.

    Refection used to be 15fps so 30 feels like an improvement.
    But seriously, they are better now, so nice job... maybe add an 'Ultra' option, with better draw distance and quality. Pretty sure a lot of PC can handle it.

    I wanted to point out that with the new UI, when I move to other windows with the key (win + tab), it closes unexpectedly. Does it happen to someone else too?

    no, I play only offline, and I use the old UI, I will change to the new UI only if the AI is updated.

    Why?

    If you click the padlock icon, the whole panel will disappear when you move your mouse off it.

    Even from watching the official Virtual Le Mans race, I always said this time and time again, the best part of rF2's graphic is from sunset into sunrise - I wonder how many rF2 haters take this into consideration

    People love AMS2 (aka Project Cars 2) graphics because they want to live in a VR la la land where the world looks like a Monet painting (when in reality, 99% of times looks nothing like that) - it's like these dorks never got their ass off Forza

    Gotta feel sorry for you, living the life of a sorry cynic whilst wanking over PC2 graphics.

    How are people able to zoom out this far? When I zoom out as far as possible, the car still takes up almost the whole screen. I had this behavior in the old UI, too.

    I don't know if game sounds are very difficult to inplement. What I know is that engine roars are one of the most impressive feelings of driving a racecar. This would rise up the simulation a lot of steps IMHO.
    :cool:

    Why does the new UI not save the AI setting strength ?
    Every time I have to change it?
    Same thing for the steering wheel setting to.
    Is it a known bug?

    Working fine here, try backing up and creating a fresh player.json file

    Showroom, old Ui compare New Ui ... why?
    Because the Old Ui simply looks better thanks to the transparent effect!

    my understanding is the Steam Overlay has to be on for Steam screenshots to work.

    Seems like every time I load up rF2, the Steering angle is way to large which causes very loose steering. I end up editing the controller.json to bring the number down closer to what I was expecting. New UI for what it's worth. For example, drove a car with 530° and next time I drove it was set at 660°. I do swap between several different control jsons, one for GT3, GTE, my Wing Flapper for the Chaparral, so I wonder if swapping between different controller profile may be the cause.(althought that 660 is larger than any profile I use)
