    looks fine to me, maybe you've fiddled with other settings too much? Sometimes you can get lost in changing this and that and end up with a different looking game, what I tend to do now is leave all the fiddly graphic settings well alone and just play the game :)

    The settings I have changed are relative to antialiasing, pre-rendered frames, and texture filtering none after B906.
    Those are my settings in game.

    With Legacy HDR and an HDR profile the sky is blue and not whitish, I have a perfectly good looking Sebring for instance.
    With Sebring profile this track, Limerock even if not perfect improves too.

    My monitor is calibrated, and my photographs look good.

    My Nvidia drivers are this version 344.75 on a GTX 770.

    Thanks for your help

    Thx ISI. Track indeed looks very good now!

    The transition from afternoon to night looks a bit messed up for a short time but still.
    If the sky colour and clouds get some love now this is going to look amazing indeed.

    The "skidpad" is there !

    Good job for the track, before I was always using slower car on that track, but I decided to try the GT2 with IA, wow, it was so much fun

    I even took the time to take screenshot

    I very much appreciate your help, but I made the test and I see correctly the four shades of the test.
    Some tracks with a legacy profile look good in RF2.
    With automated HDR I see the sky to bright and the track lacks contrast (seems like covered by a light haze).
    My Rfactor content hasn't changed, and looks good too.
    I used auto update, if I am the only one having the problem I'll try a clean install.
    Thanks again.

    What you're seeing it's probably the gamma change in that new build, so you don't need to reinstall.

    For general "washed out look" you can also check if monitor menu supports gamma adjustment, many cheap monitors are pre-configured with too light gamma (2.2 is correct). In my view the new gamma setting used by rF2 is more realistic (less dark shadows). White sky in cockpit view is more of a HDR exposure issue, some more explanation in this post.

    All I can assume is that with us tweaking tracks to work with our software, your tweaks then become obsolete in some uses? I don't know as I don't use them, but that's my guess.

    Thanks for your help, I sincerely appreciate, but do you think that suddenly, just with build 906 my monitor needs a gamma adjustment?
    And RF2 content is the sole affected, but is not when using legacy HDR profiles?
    Is RF2 the unique software needing gamma adjustment?
    Doesn't RF1 use gamma adjustment?
    Wouldn't my thousands of picture look washed out?
    Cheers.

    Hello Tim,

    The washed look (like some light morning fog) and over bright sky is when I use ISI standard tracks (no tweaking at all) with the standard default HDR since build 906. This morning I downloaded the new version of Limerock and it was striking.

    With legacy HDR profiles the tracks look better (even Limerock with Sebring hdr profile looks better), and I assure I am not looking for a cartoon look (I am a photographer too).

    Sebring which I was using with Tosch hdr profile has not been affected at all.

    Thanks again for your interest, if I am alone in having this problem don't be bothered, I'll try to check my installation.

    Merry Christmas.

    You are right, what I meant is if your monitor gamma is already a bit off, you are perhaps more prone to notice these issues in rF2. There is a good online gamma test, the lines should blend at 2.2 if monitor is tuned correctly.

    Legacy HDR profiles are probably using lower gamma than updated gamma in build 906 auto-HDR. For me updated gamma generally looks better, except in cockpit view. In cockpit view auto-exposure brightens things further, which makes it a bit too much sometimes (white sky phenomenon). I think some legacy HDR profiles have better tuned cockpit exposure.

    I think we all know there is an issue with over-exposure from inside a closed-roof cockpit. Just change camera to bonnet view and see if it immediately becomes less washed-out.
