    About the black screen, it's still there. Only took me a few seconds in garage to discover it + the flickering black patches on the ground (problem with shadows?).

    It's a shame because I really like this mod, but I haven't used it for many months now. Hope someone can fix it in the future! The new great cockpits deserves to be used more!

    Yep but in the meantime I noticed this on several other mods and tracks.
    For example with the URD Darche and McNolo's Bahrain or with F1RFT or with the WSGT Megane.
    It seems to be something like shadow clipping I'm sure Luc or Tuttle could answer why this happen.
    But I'm not a modder so I'm the wrong to ask this question.

    Okay that's strange, I haven't seen this issue with any other mod or track.

    You have to turn off HDR with this mod. That causes the black screen thing.

    Maybe it causes the black screen, but I still have black flickering ground even with HDR off.

    michelle mouton has said that this moment of formula One was the best of all. A wall was a wall, and a track, a track. No affubulation, no ventriculation to arrive before the other. I 'm agreed.

    This is one of the greatest mods in rFactor 1 history, and is even much better with rF2 physics. Is this still being worked on??!!! Is this the latest version?

    This is the latest version. Two cars with updated cockpits (Tyrell and Lotus). All cars have chassis flex (AFAIK). But it's probably not being worked on anymore... I think the flickering black screen issue with the new cockpits killed the motivation when it could not be solved. But you're right, it's a wonderful mod and I still drive the Tyrell sometimes and I've found a seat position where I haven't seen a black screen in months (still see it on replays though).

    But I think it's everone's wish that this mod would work flawlessly (even ISI), so if modder arnao and zonder (or anyone else really) would like to finish it I'm sure this black screen issue could be solved with help from experienced modder or ISI staff who knows what could possibly cause it (it's definitely something in the new cockpit, that's for sure). Btw I've heard that the new road car Corvettes have some black screens too... could be the same issue?

    This mod would be perfect for SR4L's next season as we have done all 60's formulas and a 70's car would be the perfect step.

    What do you mean? :confused: :p

    Anyway.. If you really have the solution to the black screen you should definitely share this knowledge with the modders or ask for permission to fix it.
    This problem should not be fixed only so we can use the mod at SR4L but so everyone can use it. It's definitely holding people back from driving it.

    The Corvette has the black screen flicker, if that gets resolved the knowledge can be shared and the fix can be applied here.

    Well, I offered to "adjust things" more than once on the SR4L forum and said many times: "just let me know". ;)


    I can't remember very well how I did that and it wasn't easy, I remember that much.
    I did that for myself back than and to fix it for everyone, I have to see if I can get permission.

    Why is the issue specific to these cars? Other than that issue this is amazing. The issue is so minor in the grand scheme of things :)

    It's so sad if this mod never gets the final touches it deserves. It's already such an epic piece of work.

    Arnao, is the 0.43 version in the OP the absolute latest version of this mod?
