    We have a new build (1110), and I was about to say: problem solved! Everything went well until I realized I had switched on 'private testing', and I decided to let other cars to the track. rF2 crashed the same way as before.
    So I isolated the problem: "too many" cars on the track!
    If I let more than 2 AI cars from the old ones (Indy car in that case) or more then 1 car from the new generation (Merc GT3) rf2 crashes after loading the scenery. It's OK otherwise.
    Build 1109 DX9 and 1108 DX11 beta works perfectly (with any number of AI cars).
    It seems to be a memory handling issue or something like that.
    OK, my video card (Nvidia 820M) is way below minimum requirements, but it's been working before, and maybe I can help you developers with this post.

    Specs: Dell Inspiron, Intel i5 - 8 GB, Nvidia 820M - 2 GB

    Check if your graphics card is selected in video settings, in the launcher.

    Then it's possible that your GPU is not enough

    Remember if you use AI
    It’s not just the graphics of the cars
    You’d PC is having to process their calculations too & rfactor2 has the best AI thus I bet more calculations than other sims

    I would think that if it has never worked. But the previous rF2 versions easily managed 22 AI cars, and new ones can't do it with 2... Strange, to say the least.

    The previous versions were DX9? The current one is totally different
    Are you using the same cars and circuits?
    Try reducing all the display settings and add more AIs, to check if this is GPU related. As @Adrianstealth says, the AIs affect too to CPU and RAM. This can be due to different reasons.

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. 1108 DX11 beta was the last DX11 version without any crash.
