    technically , rfactor2 is not an arcade game; it is the best simulator. So, passing in dx11 will be a great evolution for sim racers.
    thanks and regards

    Please add in the next Roadmap Update the state of your VR implementation and if you are still on track for a Q1 2017 release. Or maybe you need beta testers? For me rF2 is the most accurate racing simulator and I'm waiting so desperately for VR support! So please keep us informed ... Thank you! :)

    It's great that you all have VR, but spare a thought for us poor people that have been married for 200 years with 10 kids!

    I've only just moved on to 1080p

    Oh come on; it sounds like you could use the extra motivation. VR, VR, VR . . . :D

    It's coming today. Check for updates and you would know for at least several days that today is the day.

    Also Q1 not Q3. Well maybe it will be Q3 for you for not paying attention that everyone else already got it in Q1. ;) :D:rolleyes::cool:

    And yet Raceroom somehow managed it. But, you're right: It's rare that someone is able to put together an entire cohesive series with all the participants. URD has come the closest with their outstanding paymods (go buy every single one if you haven't already). And, of course, they did it by using fake names, thus avoiding all the licensing stuff. Which is fine by me. All I care about is whether the car drives right and sounds right. What's in a name? :)

    Ian Bell has been quoted as saying "people don't want this" (entire professional racing series), but I think that's only true of casual players. Anyone (still) playing rF2 is definitely not casual. Most of us are motorsport junkies and that's why we love this (comparatively) "ugly" sim that has the best AI, best FFB and best physics of them all.

    If it ever came down to it...just changing a name is not enough to avoid copyright entanglements. When NAscar RAcing was first taking off for Papyrus, they had most of the tracks but NOT Daytona due to that being licensed to another company. 3rd party members created several tracks that looked like Daytona, but where named differently, one used the county name, it was called Volusia. (really didn't sound proper to me!) But in the end, those were mostly squashed. I have purchased URD cars and enjoy them. I am just not holding my breath they will be able to continue.
    Now....back to the roadmap. Thanks again Marcel for keeping us informed. I KNOW that no matter how you end up sorting out the DX11 conversion, you will be both Praised and Despised. I hope more of the former for sure.
