    Have you tried the DX11 version? At least some Nvidia freeze bugs that plagued DX9 rF2 should be fixed with it.

    Am I the only one, stumbling over "+50 cars on the Nordschleife" ?

    Are those AI drivers or humans on a server ?
    If you're racing vs. AIs, I'd suggest to setup a dedicated local server on your gaming PC, so that all the AI calculations are offloaded to a separate thread.

    Also, like stonec, I can wholeheartedly recommend that you give the actual DX11 beta a try.
    Especially the Nordschleife got a tremendous FPS boost on my system, delivering almost constantly above 90 FPS, whereas I was always around 60 FPS when running the previous DX9 version of rF2.

    Yes AI !
    Good advice for the dedicated server; i didn't know that it could improve load balancing, thx !

    This game is amazing, i knew it had it !
    Reinstalled everything on an earlier version of Win 10 with 2016 nvidia drivers, all chipset/raid driver of my motherboard and.............................
    ................
    WoOH !!! I hope it stay like that because it can be exceptionnaly good but very frustrating, i touch wood !
    Its like a car than you can setup just right in a sweetspot and woOH ! but it can be way off sometimes also for whatever reason...

    I can't believe it, I can see frequencies that weren't there before, inertia of the car both felt through FFB and seing AI cars, its the renault F35, i can feel weight transfert and maybe i'm dreaming gyroscopique wheel effect ??
    Thats crazy! never felt this before, how you can go from worst to top notch.

    I didn't want to critisize it, it is just frustration when you know it can be that right and it doesn't;
    I bought rfactor one as soon as it came out in 2005 i think, nothing come close... but when the sweetspot is in the ballpark...
    I'm gonna make every single file readonly and perform 57 backup.

    Btw. when vsync is enabled, it is mandatory to activate triple buffering in the gfx drivers as well, for avoiding unnecessary slow downs.

    Went slow mo again... game over !
    i had changed AA to 3 instead of 1, full special effects and ... bang !

    What i don't understand is that when you revert the settings that put the system in this state it never come back as before.
    I played many different tracks / mod without any pb and bang here it comes again..

    And after it come once you just doubt you're in real time and are just waiting for it to happen again... thats a killer

    Do you completely kill the game (launcher included)?. I would make a backup of dx11_config.ini when you get it working OK and check later if changes are being done.

    I myself am suffering from performance inconsistency and am still trying to find the variables being involved in the difference in performance. I can see that starting always with the launcher shows more consistency. I even kill the full game for switching tracks. After exiting race mode to single player UI something seems to remain odd.

    I don't think you should be messing with BIOS settings as suggested. I don't think it is something on your side. IMO rF2 DX11 is the only culprit.

    i'm not on DX11 version and i didn't kill the app this time.
    it was really working well for a while with my actual bios settings i agree it doesn't seem to be the pb

    Hi chuckyeager.

    Please, allow me a couple of questions.

    Do you realize how difficult it is to troubleshoot an outdated version ?
    What are your complete system specs ?
    Did you try the recent DX11 version ?
    Do you have VSync and tripple buffering enabled ?
    Do you run and connect to a dedicated server ?
    Did you verify that it's not a case of hardware throttling ?

    We'll get this thing sorted ... somehow ... ;)

    DX9-version isn´t outdated exactly.
    It´s the latest stable version! Recommended for people that don´t wanted to bother with a Beta-program!
