    Leave your comments and feedback below :)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Disable all third party plugins for DX11 and VR

    • Open the file CustomPluginVariables.JSON located in rFactor2/UserData/Player
    • Add a '0' to all third-party plugin entries, example:
    Code:
    },
    "DeltaBest_x64.dll":{
    " Enabled":0
    • Remove TrackMap Plugin 'd3d9.DLL' from ...rFactor2/Bin64
    • If you have any issues make sure to first clear you Shaders and Cbash. The Two folders are located in rFactor2/UserData/Player/Logs. Only remove the contents of these folders, leave the empty folders.
    • You may need to 'verify your game cache' if you are still having issues.

    Nope nope nope nope nope.
    Very dissapointing for me so far.

    Used to get 130 fps on historic spa with the BT20 with high settings,
    I now have 30-ish fps with a lot of stutter on lowest settings, and post effects turned off.
    I have an RX480 and run a 2560x1080 resolution.

    Delete contents of...

    :\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\Log\CBash
    :\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\Log\Shaders

    Set enable: 0 on all but steamplugin in...

    :\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\player\CustomPluginVariables.json (open in notepad / any text editor)

    To enable VR...

    disable VR game theatre for rF2 in steam then restart SteamVR then
    launcher > gear icon > videosettings > enable VR
    if view reversed (menus behind you), rerun steamvr room setup in seated/standing mode rather than roomscale mode

    Older GPUs...
    turn down Post Effects to low or none (in launcher's video settings)

    In general...
    Recheck your Video settings in launcher are as you expect them to be (eg: any vsync settings, correct card being used in case you have integrated also)

    Can't play too.
    Single player, multiplayer, does not matter.

    You have to disable plugins that draw on the screen, like trackmap.
    Go to rFactor 2\UserData\player\CustomPluginVariables.JSON and set 0 next to the plugins that draw on the screen.

    It loaded and I was in the pits,then white screens and crash to desktop,I verify files,it says one missing will retrieve.
    Load again this time silverstone is missing,I resub and install,load to the pits,and crash boom wallop.
    Before when the track was loading,my side screens when the same colour as the centre,now they are white.
    Will try again tommorow,or when they release a patch to fix

    It ran fine at first but then I suffered a crash mid race, getting an error now every time I press the Single Player icon:
    [JSON] failed to perform operation, unsupported type

    I have Verified Files & Disabled All plug-ins but get the same error both before and after a restart of Steam & the OS.
