    Good update, but completely remove all folders RF2 and reinstalled. Apply settings of video and still had to manually change WidescreenUI = 1 in config.ini. This could give rise to confusion those who set rf2 for the first time.

    So it is not sticking for you after a fresh install?

    Before reinstalling I also deleted the C: \ Users \ Dmitry \ Documents \ rFactor2
    After installing applied full screen, but this has no effect and had to manually change WidescreenUI = 0 to 1

    Thanx for the fixes!

    Personally i like more regular small fixes and updates. ;)

    About ALT-TAB. ==> enable "Auto Close Launcher" fixed it for me.

    Strange, i use windowed mode a lot with a low/small resolution, to get a small window that i can drag around on my screen.
    I can minimize and open that window perfectly.

    Note: in windowed mode: if you click on another window or on your desktop. FPS drops or halves.
    I'm not an expert on this, but i think it this is due to switching graphic-card profile from rF2 to windows general profile.

    That is normal in software that requires high priority or realtime to run, as when you bring another window into forward focus you remove rF2 from being able to get the speed it needs to run.

    I never noticed any graphics issue with b906, did this widescreen issue effect everyone??... Everything seemed fine to me...

    It was only a problem if you tried to change a major graphics setting (hit "Apply" button).

    Auto Update worked I think but maybe no. My UI is like 1024x768 or something like that even though set at 1920x1080. Go into sim and have widescreen. Didn't have this till I updated to 910.

    EDIT: widescreen UI=1 instead of 0 fixed my problem. Tx

    Thanks ISSI! Smooth as silk. There were a number of us racing on the F3 Fanatics when we learned of the update. Bryan quickly updated the server and about 8 of us updated, and were racing again. We were driving the recently updated Lola T280, and WooChoo's Longford. We did 24 hours in 24 minutes, so we had a chance to look at day and night, online, with 8 guys. It was fantastic. The track and cars were very good, and game play according to Bryan seemed smoother (translated frame rates). All good from here. Thanks for a great update.

    I really like this quick reaction on issues, wich getting reported only a few workingdays before.

    I also used update function of new launcher, and it worked perfect.

    Tested Graph.-resolution change with "apply" button in Game, and it's fixed now in my case.

    thank's ISI !

    Auto-Updated fom 906 and everything is fine.
    I still cannot replicate the "Widescreen UI" bug, I've tried changing settings here there and everywhere but it's all working as per normal my end.

    Finally thanks for the Hot Fix, whilst I understand for Leagues a Hot Fix could become an issue (some people updating, others not) I would much prefer that serious issues in the future are dealt with these as opposed to waiting for the next major patch, just my two pence :)

    That widescreen issue, does it make the in-game U.I. physically smaller on your screen, or is it still full screen but just blurry because it's low res? I'm trying to figure out if I have this issue because I'm not exactly sure what to look for...

    @ Spinelli
    With build 906, when i try'ed to change graphical resolution under "Settings->Video res" and hit "Apply", aspect ratio always changed to 4:3.


    @ RCRacing / Dimitry
    Are you still able to reproduce the issue, after you manually changed config.ini ?

    Strange, i had it in 906, but its fixed in 910. Some people still seems to have it in 910.

    I like to add: Only updated via launcher, i doesn't delete any Config files or folders.
