    Well, I did a totally fresh install. I used the old file for the controller, all the rest is brand new (including player.json). I deleted the rfactor2 directory. The previous installation was made with build 7xx and then updated at every new release.

    It looks and feels better. Then I changed the line "Sim Processor Thresh" from 255 to 3 and it look and feels more fluid.

    I didn't have the opportunity to test it with more than 10 cars, so I can't say it's definitive fixed, but there is a big improvement.

    Yes, now I can drive the car "in the reality". I still have to find a server plenty of cars to confirm.

    Can you produce a video showing this? It sounds a very weird stuff for me.

    No problems with a i7-4790k so far.

    Hopefully it was just a matter of house keeping of your PC files. Every update needs to have CBASH and Shader folders cleared. It's good to get rid of player.json every other update too.

    It's at the player.json it's like the +fullproc in rf1 i think.

    Well, it looks like my processor can't handle rf2 properly anymore. It runs well if I drive alone, but if I join a server with some cars, it starts to get slower and slower. Everything moves like in a dream and you can't get the necessary info from the FFB to go as fast as you really can.

    I'm thinking in buy a new processor and motherboard and keep all (memory and the GTX770) the rest. Which processor do you recommend?

    The fastest one you can afford, of course.

    i5-5970 should be good enough, right?

    Well...hardware is very expensive here, an i7 5820 cost something like 800 american dollars, plus a motherboard. That's more than half a month salary. An i5 4670 is near 400.

    I'd say there is no need to go i7, most games aren't properly multithreaded anyway, you gain very little by going 8 cores for pure gaming purposes. rF2 also technically uses only two cores (latest build disabled multicore stuff), so i5 will do fine with it.

    nVidia also locks out previously available benefits of their drivers and hardware.

    dbaldi, my CPU is an i5-4570 (click on the Windows icon under my avatar) and I run fine. Maybe that's more feasible for you.

    It's the same equation everywhere. Buy the fastest hardware you can afford, always, because even the latest, greatest becomes obsolete so quickly. If you can't afford a significant step-up in performance compared to what you already have now, then wait until you can. Whatever you do, don't get an AMD video card if rF2 is your main priority. Otherwise you should get better performance according to published benchmarks. If you check those benchmarks, you'll find out that CPU and mainboard won't help you a whole lot compared to GPU and optimized programming of software.

    Yeah, I think it will be an i5. Any motherboard brand to recomend?

    I'll keep the actual 8GB of RAM DDR3, power supply, HDs and the Nvidia GTX770. I'll buy just processor and motherboard.


    EDIT: I'll use it a standard speed, no overclocking.
