    hi, I just re installed rf2 and I've seen 2 annoying things already.
    first when you want to go to the track "offline", single player to test cars/tracks you go to Race and first thing you come across this message (since Multiplayer is "first" on the menu but I don't even care about multiplayer yet)
    and it doesn't even remember your last choice. Single player should be first always or at least give me an option.

    then you choose the car and with that you usually check for skins but how would you know the skin choices if they are all greyed out? you have to click on each skin to see what color it is, it's really stupid..makes no sense at all
    [​IMG]

    Also while loading a track, say Nurburgring, why would I care about the version number as part of the track name?
    Loading Nurburgring 2.17... you could put that aside with much little font.

    didn't feel to do some further test buy I bet there are a few more annoying and now well thought things

    Fiddle around with it a bit, I think it's miles better than what we had. Maybe not perfect but i think its a massive improvement

    Try using list view (grey drop-down menu in top left). When I use that I can see all car colours in the list without having to click on each one.

    I don't like waiting for the servers populating either, I'd much rather have the choice to start in pure offline mode.

    Just save a favorite, then it becomes much quicker to load

    I don't have a favorite server, so I just chose the one with the lowest ping to my system. Choose that and technically the low ping response should make the delay as short as possible.

    Being html it would seem logical for this favorite server feature blocking only that multiplayer part of the main menu, instead of freezing the entire UI.

    Good point about grey skin selection.

    Like people say - rFactor is in the details.

    Adding AI in game is broken, the cars you boot stay on track and you can drive through them
    And adding AI also crashes the game

    We are trying to figure out if it is just one of us getting this error or multiple. Tracking down the bug, reproducing it and help get it fixed.... and what are you doing?

    Hi.
    I can add AIs in practice, qualy and warmup, but not in race.
    I don't know how to remove AIs in the new UI :oops:
