    The Nissan GT4 windscreen wipers are in the middle of the window blocking the view. Its really difficult to see anything. Are the wipers really in the right position?

    It is really nice to see better rain effects on rF2, but you need to update the performance of it. Right now it is not good, specially when running on a storm.

    Thx guys for the great work this year to bring back rf2 !

    Would be nice to have settings for VR (Rift) to reach stable 45fps with rain and let ASW do the rest.

    Also there is still the tcp error on dedicated server to connect to isi tracker...

    Merry christmas to S397 team and the rf2 racing community !

    I have. I even lowered the graphical settings bellow the recommended for low-end PC's.

    Without rain - 110 FPS
    With rain (mirrors ON) - 20 to 35 FPS
    With rain (mirrors OFF) - 35 to 50 FPS

    I love to see newer effects for rFactor 2, although this rain isn't a perfectly accurate and smooth representation of how rain behaves on the windshield. Other sims have done a better visual job with better performance, not only regarding rain.

    But good to see rFactor 2 being taken care of, anyways.

    All my ISI GT3 cars have two versions. Is it okay to delete the lesser numbered version? Thanks.

    Yeah, I see the same (v1.96 and 1.97). I bought the GT3 pack today but I can't use the Bentley for some reason.

    Sorry for my last message, I tried some recommended graphic options and reinstalled + updated graphic cards drivers and now it runs better, but... you have to take a serious look into the rain perfomance because as another user already reported, the FPS in rain are about 50% worse than in dry, something that never happened in DX9.

    See you.

    No, don't do that. Lower numbered ones are the base, higher is the teams stuff, both are required.

    If you have older versions (From previous builds) installed you should be able to uninstall those though. This is really more for servers though as they can have multiple versions of the same car installed at the same time.

    I have a 7700K + 1080ti @ 1440p with it maxed out and in a storm, runs great! Looks pretty dang good too. Just didn't have any grip at all with the Bentley in the storm. Did I miss putting on rain tires or does it do that automatically?
