We are all riding hoverboards now. =D
no, but it is planned to be the default soon
New UI + competition will be out in public version max in december cf last roadmap.
The new UI is really not a success, to say the least.
It would take a miracle for the time it took in December to justify the result.
S397 succeeded in other things but not that.
I kept the original, I tried the new one but it does not meet my expectations.
It's their intention. That doesn't mean December at latest, rather as earliest.
Hi, i guess you already heard of the new and awesome HP Reverb G2 VR Headset. Something revolutionary for sims!
Unfortunately, don't expect something revolutionary from new rF2 GUI. It's basically a rebuild of old UI with new code. But for sure a lot easier to maintain and add new features. So, great for the more distant future.
In terms of new competition code I for now don't expect much. Don't expect some revolutionary features. It will still all be based on old technology. Like, don't expect new rF2 members being able to host a multiplayer event with a few mouse clicks. They still will have to alter their router/firewall to open ports. Probably only 0.01% of internet users are able to do.
Among rF2's flaws, the anti-user-friendly aspect is absolutely immense.
Personally, this is not my priority, but if in December when the UI and the competition system were released does not resolve this problem in a very very large part, frankly we can be sure that rF2 will never have a satisfactory commercial success : which would have for consequence the continuation of the current slow agony of rF2 and the impossibility that rF2 develops sufficiently in all the fields which we like.
But make no mistake :
rF2 and I have been a long "love story" from the start, but made up of too many disappointments and endless expectations.
In some areas rF2 is so good. Really.
i for one will always be an rF2 advocate, as long as there is no more realistic sim. I will leave rF2 within one second should there be a more realistic sim available. (sorry being a b...h).
I seek for most realism. I have no problem with technical difficult things.
But there are many other potential users. Those don't know much about computers (or have no friends do it for them), never be able to set firewall rules. And those not even knowing rF2 even exists.
@vittorio people aren't born knowing how to put on pants, let alone opening ports to run a server.
But opening ports is a skill that can be learned, and even many console owners learn to do it.
Honestly that's not the hardest part of running an rF2 server.
(It should be)
This. Many apps require port management from the user when you want to host something, I wish rF2 issues would be something as trivial as opening ports... if only...
I'm getting interested in stock cars.
Are stock car same as supercars V8 ?
No, they are 2018 NASCAR cars. But there are many similarities. They have less grip and more weight I think. Also 4 speed H-Pattern, and not 6 gears sequential
hope your fine, yes very excited about the new VR headsets I'll grab the G2 or the Index
looking forward to building a PC awaiting the next gen nvidia cards, my sim-rig has just been sitting idle for to long!
Will buy all laser scanned tracks released in rfactor2 as well, Nords in rfactor2 is an experience I'm looking forward to
I'm fine thanks
I will go with the HP Reverb G2 which will get released in autumn (as long as no better VR headset will get released before).
rF2 Nordschleife (EDIT: by S397, laser scanned) is just amazing!
there are several versions on Rf2 but only one of the 397 paying, it has a 1975 version but that is aging, otherwise the most beautiful is the summer / autumn version
Free rF2 Nordschleife compared to S397 rF2 Nordschleife: free version was developed in rF1 times by COM8 and friends. So more than a decade ago. Its tarmac model is not up to tech standards anymore, lets face. It doesn't have realistic and detailed (laser scanned) track surface, even the track layout is wrong. If you don't care for realism and track details, then its good. I am using rF2 for realism, thats why i am here, so no question what version i prefer.
the rf1 1975 version is the only one that has the vintage layout and I think it's a shame.
have you pre-ordered Vittorio ?
I don’t like the idea of paying & waiting
Don’t mind a small deposit then rest just prior to despatch but they want 100% payment & claim despatches will happen I think during Sept. if they go bust then doubt they’ll pay back
( it’s not HP it’s an -to me unknown reseller )
I may not build PC until Christmas time anyway so I’ll look to see what headset available then out of the reverb G2 & index maybe & next gen graphic cards should be released too.
The steam/valve index no prepayment required so I’m happy to preorder closer to that time +can use 120hz mode too
But may grab a reverb if In stock for the cost saving Although 90hz only there’s a very slight increase in clarity but release could well run later than September & 1st batches could have problems Hopefully by Christmas we will know.
No, i didn't preorder a HP Reverb G2. Well, maybe I have to spend €100 more cause of not preordering. But HP Reverb G1first batches showed there were many many problems. Maybe there will a better VR Headset get announced too till autumn. And I have time...
Yes wise & my thoughts exactly,
Very exciting time with the new hardware being released over next few months &
hi-res headsets, my previous was an oculus CV1 , trying not be impatient & will monitor release of the G2
Extra happy studio397 have continued to support Rfactor2 I’ll be grabbing most of the DLC content as a treat too should be a nice Christmas
