    Basic Info:
    After completion of weekend testing, ISI are happy to release rFactor 2 Build 930. This is the 30th update for our product since it was released to testers in 2012.

    In this build we have a large number of bug fixes and changes, most notably updates to the tire model (may be felt with all cars, new and old) and a new User Interface (some screenshots attached).

    We'll also be working on some guides, featuring the newer launcher and UI, explaining how to do some of the basic things newcomers may find daunting. Stay tuned for those...

    As always, both the demo and SDK/Dev mode have been updated to reflect the changes in the latest build.

    Download:

    and (for SDK/Mod Mode) - http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/devscorner/
    Update 30 (Build 930) Changelog:
    Notes:
    - If you had HDR legacy enabled, you will get a misalignment in UI after auto updating. You can fix this with a .json file edit to set. See below. Font scaling seems to also cause this, which we'll have to fix too. In the meantime Windows at 100% works.
    - You need multiview enabled if using multiple / triple screens (unless you're not bothered by stretching).

    "Enable Legacy HDR Profiles":false,
    "Enable Legacy HDR Profiles#":"Whether to enable legacy HDR profiles",

    Auto update should be working as of now. If not, please let me know. Few things to do then off to bed, but I'll check again in a few minutes to see if you have any problems.

    Auto update worked flawlessly. I do not have the problem mentioned above, all cars/tracks show up fine for me. Can't test further until tonight, but so far so good. Great job ISI, the new UI looks fantastic.

    Cheers

    Hi Tim, is there a size limitation to upload images to forum using the native tool? Maybe because i use 3 screen setup and my screen shots should b bigger, almost every time my upload fail (in fact, only worked once)

    Yes, I think there is. You can LINK images using the img tags larger, but uploading I think it's 1920px.

    A.
    Is this the so-called "contact patch update" everyone keeps talking about??... If so, is this just another small part of it, or is this the tyre model update in it's full glory??...


    B.
    Does this mean that if we hold the "shift" button while pressing the AI-toggle key, that that particlur A.I. will continue to use fully player physics?

    Doesn't sound like it to me.

    *Edit: I should say I'd expect a slightly more detailed note if it were... it does sound like the tyre needs to be rebuilt, so maybe there'll be something there... love ambiguity in the changelog.
