    Can I adjust the menu distance in VR somewhere? The new UI is so close in VR that I have to move my head a lot just to see different parts of the screen. Could use an adjustment in old UI too but it's still usable.

    Also there's horrible flicker when new UI is doing something and not yet responding. I have to close my eyes until it reacts again.

    You could just move your head closer to your light houses and press the reset position button, make sure you assign reset VR in game settings.

    Are you serious? That hardly is a solution anyone would use more than one time.

    Well you could always use a different resolution in game , that’s works also .

    The flicker was there before the new UI came. Started for me about 3 SteamVR updates ago. Was hoping that they would of fixed that by now!

    During loading this flicker has always been there. It's just a small annoyance. The resolution deciding the size of the UI and HUD is a problem though for me. I can't record 4k VR footage, or show it even when someone is over in 4K. Otherwise I have to look to the sun to see my lap time, and noticing the chat in the left bottom already is hard in 1080.

    To me recording is also the reason why I can't drop the resolution. It would be ideal to have menu distance as a setting.

    About the flicker: yes, it's been there for a while in old UI too but not always. And it's not as bad in the old UI. I went back to old for these things.
