    Game is now HDR mode by default and we have to jump thru hoops if we don't want it? What was wrong with having the perfectly easy to use enable/disable ticker in the video options menu?

    Game is HDR mode by default simply because we do not support LDR as a feature and it therefore doesn't belong in the menu. Content is made for HDR and doesn't get much LDR testing, if any.
    Imagine a new or inexperienced user turning HDR off along with reflections or shadows, not knowing what it does or assuming that LDR is a supported 'alternative' ...
    It was left in the .ini file for those who desperately need to run LDR for one reason or another which may be perfectly valid. You can still run it if that's what you really really really want, but we don't support, recommend or encourage it.

    From a philosophical point of view, having an LDR option in the menu would be like having an option to run the rF1 tyre model. It isn't in the menu either, for what everyone considers to be an obvious reason. So yes, there is definitely some logic behind this :) .

    I had to open also UDP 54013 to my game PC Steam ver.

    TCP 64297,54297
    UDP 54013,54297,64298,64299

    I used CurrPorts v2.22 to find out which ports to use

    Thx, Elliott :)

    Yes, it does appear to be darker and dull now, as if it's overcast. Possibly a side-effect of the improvements made to the sun occlusion ...
    Well, AI cars have to drive it ... and LesiU beat me to it :) .

    Do you mean that user data folder was also reset when installing B1080?

    Running the lite installer over an existing installation is NOT a fresh install. Creating a new core folder maintaining user data folder is NOT a fresh install. Any of those would keep old shaders and cbash files. fresh install is when both user and core data folders are built from scratch by the installer.

    As I have stated in many occasions, the best way to make a fresh install is to create a new folder for that install and specify it as both core and data folders. You need for sure to reinstall content, plugins, key assignments.... and everything. But that is the price of having a fresh install. Myself and many other people have been working that way since the very first build without any problems.

    Yeah shadows seem to not display in showroom, but 99% of users won't care about showroom anyhow so it's a minor bug. I'm more concerned about these connection issues from Steam users to non-Steam servers, that is something that could be affecting online a lot.

    For some reason, rF2 stopped working in my PC. I had to uninstall it and I used the v1080 Lite installer to get it working again. Is there a way to get the full version of rFactor available for download?
