    Hello, I have a random problem with LMP2 (pack endurance), the virtual and real mirrors are in very low quality. No problem on other cars. All my settings are on full.

    Has someone already had this problem?

    I don't know what is causing fuzziness of the image in the mirror, I get that some times in my mirrors but if you mean the lack of object detail in the mirror there is a setting in the player.JSON that can be set to increase objects in the mirrors. Open player.json in notepad and scroll down to Graphic Options and then to the line Rearview Cull, default is set to true, change it to false and save. This will give more objects in the mirrors but it will have an impact on your FPS, can easily be change back if FPS is too low. Hope this may be of help.

    Thank you for your help, but it does not solve the problem, I asked the question on the forum simracing.club (VEC) and I'm not the only one to have the problem.

    It's because the mirror file is low res. Only can be fixed by the person who made the car, or by an update with just a new mirror.bmp file.

    It's a random problem, sometimes it's displayed in good resolution

    Are you referring to the blurriness or the lack of objects?
    The lack of objects is determined by the track modder.

    Same car as in all the Orecas or same car as in the exact skin? I ask because the 12hr of Sebring skin pack came with low res mirrors to improve performance during the race. Perhaps VEC does the same for their league skins.

    This is a bug I think random because with the same car on all skins, 1 time out of 3 I have the right resolution in the mirrors. I am at VEC

    No, I'm talking about the display resolution of mirrors :)

    I hope the new Ui gives us options to increase mirror resolution, i just discovered this in the Oreca also.

    First they need to make the extra resolution files.
    Just have a think how long it took for one McLaren window template to be released.
    Don't over think it though. ;)
