    Why is this 'previous build'? It would be much clearer to call it 'stable'.

    Hello,
    I am very angry. Because for several days I had no more problems with the software. But since yesterday's update, it's starting again! Crash! The game freezes and I have to turn off the pc, or it's back to my desktop.
    As I have already said a thousand times here, before with the old ui I had no problems!
    I will eventually drop RF2 after years of use.
    One word: disgust!

    Which car? Official cars seems ok. But I have the same issue with the 2020 Indycar by Apex Modding.
    This is with RC (Client Steam Build ID 6276424). Previous Build is ok.

    same mod and with a stockcar mod as well, I didn't think to try official cars.

    It seems that screenshots don't work in this build. i can see them on Steam but the ones saved in UserData are just a blank screen.

    It has been corrected in the release candidate version, not the regular version.
    @Andres Valles I don't know the weight distribution, but the wheel rates show 240n/282n front/rear.

    Still no TAB to see driver names?
    And when do we get server info, like race length and damage settings...

    It's unbelievable. Pls give back the player names to the game. The TAB (display vehicle labels) button isn't working, and i don't understand why??

    the UI is getting worse and worse after all updates. pls check Better UI from Cselt. Much much better.

    what's your goal? we need to play with ACC??

    finally reflection ultra with high frequency and resolution, auto-exposure, maybe I will test, cause for the moment the old UI is perfect for me.

    So, how about filtering some of these fixes and improvements down to the old-ui build so that those of us that want to avoid eye cancer (and see player labels during a race) can benefit?

    Alternately, you could just put player labels back and remove the blinding white screen in the transition from driving back to the pit garage.
