    I have to admit guys the spray isn`t quite what I was expecting either but then again I don`t really know what I was expecting it to be like...

    I think it looks ok for a first crack at it... better from some angles than others but it`ll get there.

    Hey, I think that looks really good, at least in the very beginning! Maybe it's because there's not so much water on track, or maybe Marussia spray looks better, but for me it looks like this:

    I'm not going to say something about the visibility, but the spray effect itself looks horrible. I don't like to complain... but I don't think this spray should have been released yet. I don't like the smoke effect either, and this spray looks like 2 millions of those small smoke "clouds" put together. But as everything else seems fine with this build, I'll continue avoiding rain (And I actually had very fun driving some laps around Brianza in the wet, it will be great with aquaplaning).

    Yes, if the driver was into a cloud in some Flight Simulator.

    Of course it's wrong. There's an anti-adherent skin on the helmets and specially the wind taking the water away. It's ridiculous to judge the rain view based in onboard cameras, where the water is trapped in lens, or in a some subjective driver statement. If this picture was the real drivers view all of 22 cars will be destroyed at lap 2.

    Ok, thanks.

    Currently in rf2, it's just a one grey scalable and rotating (in similar way like billboard trees) texture multiplied many times.

    Is it normal that my developer screen is greyed out? (not that I ever use it) Just did fresh install with lite installer. Just copied my old "player", "controller" "log" and of course "packages" folders.

    There is still the bug with the menu which means Sepang 1.2 and 1.44 cannot be run alongside each other, which means I cannot run the content associated with Sepang 1.2 if I want to run Sepang 1.44. Other than that, this build seems steady. No big visual changes apart from the spray, but the inclusion of player name in replays was a welcome change.

    Tim, can we get an explanation on this entry in the release notes?:
    "Found some problems with driver swap"

    Driver swaps is a huge priority for me so any hints get me really excited.

    Impossible to push the graphic option highter.:(

    Like all the builds.

    Is rfactor2 can be better? or do we need to have 2 or 3 graphic cards and the best of the market?

    HD6970; 5760*1080 for me, with multiview of course.
