    Same happening to me, framerate halved and a lot of stuttering when watching myself at replay (only car on the track) in VR

    Thanks for the update and to have made it so quickly after returning from break.

    Q: is there a way to change the color scheme?
    Not to be too critical but I cannot stand the super bright, hideous red/white combo. As a VR user, I'd love to have a 'dark' theme that's easier on the eyes. Transparent menus and sharp text would also be welcome.

    Thanks!

    Replay indeed wants to run in 60FPS whilst my headset wants to run in 90. This might have to do with this stuttering problem

    Using custom liveries is now broken.
    Some people get booted at the race start, some just see white cars, others see standard livery instead of the custom liveries.
    It's a right mess at the moment.

    Just to add, did a league race tonight, and the lag in vr graphics has gone up tenfold.
    After spending many hours to get really good settings, it's all gone to pot again.

    Looks like the fix has broken more than it fixed

    In-car my lag actually went away. It's just in menu vsync doesn't know if it has to go 60, 90, or 120/144 fps which I think is the main cause of all the lagging in the menu and replay with VR on.

    After the recent update, when i launch the game i get stuck on a blinding white screen.. waited 10 mins nothing happens so i forced shut down and tried a few times. I eventually went back on the old UI build and the game works.. Anyone else have this issue? Any known work arounds? new UI was fine up until they pushed out this update.
    Thanks

    TRY clicking anywhere inside the white area. I had this a year ago when the UI first was released. Hasn't happened, to me, in a long time.

    make sure you check your video config before launching rF2. Ensure it shows your vid card, not AUTO or Microsoft

    What is the use of last used configuration tab?
    In my opinion this "read only" state is not needed. I need to click Customize to be able to change anything. Why not enabling changing car and track by default and skip this unnecessary click?

    When choosing track configuration on left side of the screen is track map and underneath is select button that could be made more obvious.
    It doesn't stand out and it doesn't look like something clickable.

    I think you missed something: you can click the series name, car name, and track name, in that tab, and change each of those immediately. You don't need to click Customize.

    Yes I missed that.
    I'll rephrase the question than:
    Why is there a Customize button if user can already click the series name, car name, and track name, in that tab, and change each of those immediately?
    What purpose does it have other than missleading users into thinking they have to clik that button and therefore not noticing they can already achieve the same thing without that unneeded extra click?
    That leads to another quiestion: why aren't series name, car name, and track name made more obviously clickable and not just bold font in the same row?
    Game UI is not a web page, users don't expect to click little bold info text.
    I don't see any reason to have that Customize button. Last known configuration info is not needed in my opinion, that tab should look like when you already clicked Customize, so with Race and Session settings buttons and with series, car and track links visibly clickable.

    There will be less confused users.

    Agree the customise button isn’t intuitive and could be better implemented. Splitting online MP and offline would be my preference to keeping them both under Race.

    Would also like to keep servers as favourites even when they change content and saving password for each favourite would help users in leagues as well.

    Thanks for the heads up. I use a GTX1070 and have done for a while with no issue till the new UI, when I switch back to old UI I don't get the stutter. :(
