Remove zeros, yes or no?

  1. Yes, displaying all those zeros is unnecessary

    Is there an option to remove all the zeros you see in the timing screens?
    I think it looks a little ugly to see the timings in rF2 with....
    + 00:00.371
    + 00:00.556
    + 00:01.715
    + 00:12.324 etc, instead of the following convention that is used in every motorsports series I think I have ever watched...

    + 0.371
    + 0.556
    + 1.715
    +12.324

    The latter looks a lot cleaner and is much quicker to absorb whilst having a quick glance during a race.

    Could this be added to the to-do list please? :D

    What do you think guys?

    This means that timing screens will only show seconds and not minutes.
    Wouldnt this be a big problem in endurance races?

    It could display the minutes (or even hours) for any non-zero value in that case, as for Van Der Garde in the picture..

    It's not bothersome at all. Unless you overthink it.

    Well it does annoy me a bit more than it should, I guess! :D
    I can see I'm in the minority though. :p

    I agree salv. It may be a minor thing, but such a basic thing should follow real world protocol, it doesn't look right as it is at the moment, I'm afraid it just looks like lazy programming (sorry ISI).

    I got simresults.net to show all the zeros just to have a clean design (same time widths). But yeah the F1 screens looks good tho. It would be annoying if it would contain all the zeros... it looks clean now.

    I never thought about it... :) lol

    I don't think the ISI programmers are lazy ;)

    I actually think it looks cleaner with all the zeros IMHO. Everything lines up properly.
