    So no option for us right now, who already have latest content and just want a core update? Other than wait for working auto update or decide to fresh install(lite or sampler) if we want play right now?

    Rain spray looks horrible - doesn't disperse and seems to exist in some alternate world, where gravity works differently.

    It also has this detached look, with different lighting rules applied than rest of the world. Doesn't blend in with the rest of environment at all.

    I didn't expect anything specially good looking, but I didn't expect something this bad looking either.

    Man, it doesn't seem like you can please anyone these days ISI! People beg for rain effects, and they get a work in progress version (you know...because it's a beta), and then complain. :rolleyes: I thought the sim-racing community would be more mature than this.

    That isn't what they see in a race, unless they have a really long neck. How long are you going to argue?

    Sadly I have to agree, they can't seem to do good, even the favor of releasing a private fun project gets beat down, they most have grown tough skins...

    You can only please with something pleasing :) You cannot please anyone with just anything.
    I'm not the kind of guy who complains a lot. When I do criticise someone or something, it's usually for a good reason.

    I get microstuttering in this build + server browser is buggy (slow and doesnt list servers sometimes) + realtime timegap between cars is acting weird sometimes. In my case a huge dissapointment.

    I'm very much completely the opposit (people mostly say all Dutch are that way) but I really can't see anything bad in the way ISI are handling things with the resources they have..

    It wasn't directed at you, your post seems fairly constructive :). I happen to agree that it's not perfect. It certainly doesn't disperse correctly. It's the people who just go on and on about it, like we didn't hear them the first time. It's like a kid throwing a tantrum, but community-wide.

    Is it a good build ?

    (visitors always show up when a new build gets released )

    More optimised for fps ?
    Improvements to lighting ?
    Weather effects good ?
    Anything else new ?

    Download canceled
    Stuck at this. Also some notes on the upgrade process: typo on cancelled (last line)... also, 'cancelled' implies a user action - 'aborted' would be more preferable terminology... also, some note as to whether it will automatically retry from this point... eg: 'Download aborted - will retry automatically'. Am now at a position where I don't know whether to bail out, restart and it'll auto-resume, or whether it's now b0rked my install. Download button has reilluminated implying I can click it again to restart, but progress bars remain on 30% & 27% with graphics animation, so I can't tell whether it's bailed and stopped, or is still attempting to resume and I should wait. If it's bailed, progress bars should reflect such (no animation... & turn red? % replaced with ERR?).

    I think this is not right, is the same weird effect that smoke, in rF2 special effects needs to improve a lot. This spray is one more cause to use Sepcial effects OFF in online racing... a shame.

    Three screenshots at the same position. Over 50 meters between cars, 111km/h and 0 visibility, and is only cloudy, not storm.

    The rest of the game works perfect I think, as usual, maybe even better performance. I installed the Lite version.

    PD: all screens with everything max except shadow blur.

    First off, auto update worked a treat for me and was very quick... a matter of minutes.

    Secondly I think we have to remember this is a WIP!

    :)
