    ENG please!
    Btw, I think devs are aware of the problem no?
    Maybe a couple of words from them will be great but I will let them work and wait for a patch or sorta...

    Some people try to talk away facts they can't verify themselves. It cannot be what does not fit into one's own view of the world. It could turn out that other hardware would be appropriate, which doesn't really fit into the current concept.

    I noticed larger differences in other situations especially with a large field of oponents.

    I didn’t post that to disprove rf2 pcie issues,someone said they hadn’t seen a test done in games for a while so I posted that video,I found it interesting and up to date,and it shows that pcie bus usage shouldn’t be a problem for games if they are well coded,and users with anything but a 3k gpu shouldn’t have issues.


    Oh and I agree,pls lads post in English,I’m not foreign (sarcasms )

    Can we all just chill a little and stay on topic ;)
    If you want to talk in depth about PCI then please do it in another thread, this topic has been discussed here a lot already.

    Sorry for writing in Spanish. I think language barrier was a problem for someone to understand what was being said to him considering his replies.

    I just wrote the same thing that has been already said in several posts: rf2 performs way better with PCI 3.0 compared to PCI 2.0.

    Yes guys, please create a specific thread speaking about PCIe x16 2.0, to continue to alert S397 on this performance issue.

    And yes, as Christopher said, "just chill a little".

    gJed is intented mostly for modders, so they won't care. At least the viewer is still working...

    If they already don't know about the issue after countless pages of arguing in their own forum, I don't know what will tell them.

    The issue exists since an eternity. Unfortunately, it seems necessary to insist.

    Anybody got any clues? Updated to 1109, and tried to use rain with the GT3 car pack. I set the rain drops in options to high, all reflections to high, and PP to Low. But while I see rain in the distance, I never see any rain drops on the car itself (bodywork) nor on the windscreen. I try to use the default W key to activate the wipers, but they don't. I can see the rain on the track surface as reflections and also the puddle buildup. But no rain drops. I have an AMD R9 280, latest drivers.

    are you sure you are using the non beta release? In steam, right click on the game name and choose properties, then the beta tab and opt out of beta. Then close everything and restart steam and rf2. See if that helps.

    Sounds like you are either on a DX9 build or you don't have the latest GT3 pack update from the workshop. Originally wipers didn't work but they got enabled in the December update.

    Iracing have announced
    Day and night transitions
    Ai
    New tyre model version
    And lots of new content

    all for release in 2018,with Rain to soon follow.

    It’s going to be an interesting year for sim racers,I truly hope s397 can deliver what they have outlined,but most importantly,fix issues,bugs and release features and content with no crippling issues,because that’s iracings Achilles heel,features not working as intended for yrs on end.

    The only thing keeping me away from iracing is their tyre model,i got 3months sub and have used it for like 4races and just quit again.
    But if this new version of the tyre model fixes the issues that have plagued it for so long,then honestly,I I will be torn between rf2 and iracing.
    If iracing deliver what they have set out,it will be on par with rf2,for physics,but ahead on the competitive aspect.

    Either way sim racing is looking mighty tasty for the years to come.

    Off topic,but I’m posting this in hopes of s397 letting some more cats out of the bag

    Hello to all, I apologize if the problem has already been detected with consequent advice to solve it but not knowing English is for me a problem to read 50 pages ..
    I have a medium-high end PC (I7-6700, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, AsRock H170 Pro4s, I-Chill Gtx 1070). With this machine and with the recommended settings on the first page for high-end PC I can not go above 45 frames on a Full HD screen (1920x1080), I tried to switch from W7 to W10, installed on Hard Disk and then on SSD but no change.
    If you go from to dx11 to dx9 with the same video settings but using the triple monitor (5760x1080) by magic the frames do not fall below 70. Someone with my same problem has solved?
    Thanks

    Just a note to say that after 2 weeks away I tested the rain effects (and DX11) with one of my favourite combos, the Nords 24 and the Nissan GTR GT1.
    Loved it, those rain drops and the wipers. Having got used to the plain DX9 it ramped it up a level.
    Thanks Studio 397, well done.

    Not unless they offer a reduced subscript-cost for offline-only users. I can understand that they need to create income but, the current model still makes it too expensive compared to other titles - AI or not. AI are being added primarily to draw more people into the online aspect.

    For those that play online and / or play iRacing exclusively, AI may not make any difference at all but, it should make the title more attractive for beginners through a alternate path to advance.

    Unless they sepereate online subscription and have a offline one time fee base package,I can’t see it drawing any more people in.
    You still have to buy content either way,which is still expensive compared to other titles.
    They are creating career modes and ai championships,which risk diluting the official series already running.
    Will be interesting to see how this pans outs
