    I would reinstall rFactor2 but that doesn't seem to have helped BlaringFiddle5.

    after a further reinstall I was able to play at 1080p - raced some karts last night ... i just can't do anything larger than that (triple screens) - game immediately crashes - i no longer just get a black screen.

    Well like I said I replicated your issue by uninstalling rFactor2UI in mod manager , downloaded the Minimulist UI (in my previous post) and was all good again . The issue now is there is no option to reinstall the rFactor2UI . Hopefully it can be packaged up by someone and we can reinstall it

    Yes I could ,but that hasn't helped Blaring so far ,and to troubleshoot this correctly a packaged rF2UI might be a work around. I will reinstall Lite back over later but the new UI works so i'm not too fussed . I'm just trying to help Blaring at this stage .

    EDIT: @ Blaring , have you tried disconnecting your TV

    EDIT2: And looked in Mod Manger to see if rFactor2 UI is installed

    Is it even possible to package rF2UI ?

    Also i'd prefer to fix an existing install than just to a reinstall

    There's no separate rf2 UI.rfcmp as far as I can see, it comes with the sim.

    If you haven't removed the original UI yet but its bugged due to changes, then you could try and use my file.

    i have the default UI - the Default UI runs fine at 1080p :D The black screen I got a uninstall/reinstall ago may have been related to UI missing or similar, but I've uninstalled - completely deleted all folders of everything and reinstalled - i can now play the kart mod @ Quebec (haven't tried others) at 1080p - just not larger than that - instant crash. TV has been hooked up to the PC since forever - doubt it has anything to do with that.

    OK but could you try ,and also it may be worth rolling back your graphics drivers just to check.

    EDIT: Its just a process of elimination that's all .

    Also here's a link to the previous build ,if your up to it http://www.ausgamers.com/files/download/74471/rfactor-2-lite-build-v494 . Just install core and data to a different folder (create one called build 494 and launch it from the Launcher exe from that install ,remember to install something ) That way we can work out if its purely a build issue or a configuration issue at your end . Like I said if your up for it

    @ Tim , Is it possible you can confirm this is a build issue and not an issue at Blarings end .

    I see a similar problem here http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.p...ng-UI-changing-resolution?p=263313#post263313

    And an issue here http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.p...options-depending-on-your-chosen-U-I-What-the

    Is it possible the new garage options are conflicting with the UI and causing the crashes at a different res or just not configured correctly with the UI .

    If you could that might help Blaring and I wasting time chasing our tails

    If you reinstall over the top, you would also need to check to revert UI in the launcher I assume.

    The different options are just different options. But the crashing and Black screens are real issues for sure. Unfortunately our UI method is really old, so setup screens need to be modified often for each car we release. The Kart UI, is for the KART :) Everything else you can use the minimalist (if he keeps updating it) or ours. But yes, I do need to post it for those who uninstalled it...

    @PMC - some of that sounds like more work than i'm willing to do :) I'm willing to wait for the next patch and stuff if there isn't something that I can change now to fix the problem. If I really was hot to fix the problem, i'd just erase my drive and re-install windows 7 and go from there. All other things (iracing (5760x1080 / ac 5760x1080 / f1 2012 1920x1080 / left4dead2 1920x1080 / skyrim 1920x1080 ) work fine, however, so i'll just wait :)
