    Latest Build update is available!

    Open Beta DX11 Steam Build ID - 2317443 (rFactor 2 Build 1109)
    Default DX9 (OPT-OUT) Steam Build ID - 2317463 (rFactor 2 Build 1109)
    • (DX11) fixed the undercar shadow becoming hard to see at certain low sun angles and reflective road surfaces;
    • Removed an error message in the Launcher when a component already was installed because that's not an error;
    • Onboard controls for changing the engine brake mapping;
    • Physics enhancement to allow building engines that won't stall because they are electric;
    • Added proper playback of transmission sounds on AI/network cars;
    • Physics enhancement to properly generate heat when regenerating energy;
    • Added extra values to display in cockpits and on steering wheels for tyre pressures, temperature, and mixture, boost and brake mapping and brake bias settings;
    • (DX11) ambient undercar shadow fixes so they won't show up on parts of the car, just the ground underneath it.
    • Fixed shader error loading.
    Please leave your comments and feedback below! Thanks :)

    This is supposed to happen how? Just fired up steam, no download...verify integrity of game, one file missing message, no update still on build ID 2222008, fired up rF2 to sync, still no download, perhaps it takes a bit longer to get downunder :)

    As an aside I've ALWAYS had to verify integrity to get game updates to download in the past, dunno if that is how it should be.

    Any performance improvements being noticed? Still plugging along on a i5-750 and GTX560 with 4GB RAM. DX11 builds still aren't close to DX9 performance yet on my system even with many compromises being made on the graphics and AI fronts.

    Christ the AI wet weather pitting bug still hasn't been looked into, after all this time. Is the AI being forgotten by s397? Rf2 has the best Ai but a couple of bugs are letting it down, and I feel this shouldn't be ignored.

    My rF2 updated and now I can't launch it, "rFactor 2 has stopped working".
    Already verified the game's cache but no luck.

    Anyone else?
