    Yes I'm in agreement, running on the S397 servers during daytime it got too dark when the clouds rolled over and it never got/gets that dark on a monitor with default Contrast Settings. Not sure there's anything we can do our end with HMDs (not actually looked so there maybe a way), perhaps it's something for S397 to look into.

    I was having trouble with photo bucket BUT this is fantastic Adrian .

    https://postimages.org/
    It quick and easy to post to Forums , best I've ever used by a long way .

    I've had to edit ever single photo I've ever posted in forum , thanks to photo bucket messing things up , never again will I use photo bucket.

    Ps , works great with Mobile devices also , just create a shortcut , when choosing photo pick upload file / photos and it creates links for you , no advertisement , just login with email.
    --------------------
    How can I post images to a forum that doesn't use your plugin?


    1. Click the "Choose images" button on the main PostImage page.
    2. Select the images you need to upload in the file browser that pops up. Once you click "Open", images will immediately start uploading.
    3. After your images have been uploaded, you will see an admin gallery view. Click the second drop-down box to the left of the code box and select "Hotlink for forums". If you only uploaded one image, this option will be in plain view instead.
    4. Click the Copy button to the right of the code box
    5. Open your forum's post editor.
    6. Paste the code copied from PostImage into the editor. The forum needs to have BBcode support enabled for this to work

    I don't notice it being too dark here in vr or my screen. I was going to ask if there were any weather mods like AC?

    So, there is no way of setting color?

    One last thing, please Studio-397 do not do any kind of auto exposure or blur.

    He posted that before last nights update, FYI there's an issue with it disappearing for good which S397 are fixing as it is needed for the ESC Menu.

    We need lock to horizon in VR. Just played f1 1979 mod at Montreal and it is just fantastic. Problem is with the stiff suspension on these cars any track that is bumpy (ex: mills, Monaco) are really uncomfortable to play as you bounce around.

    +1000.

    I'm pretty used to it by now, but afraid to show it to my friends due to potential motion sickness.

    Really enjoying rf2 in VR, it has taken a while to get the ffb setting working but now the beta is running well. Is there a way to know which cars & tracks are updated for the beta & how to reduce bloom?

    I only really stick to the studio397 stuff but here's a list above ( steam rfactor2 workshop collections )

    re.bloom turn off the PP in the graphic options (where the resolution is etc ) or like me use Low only

    Just got out of vr with pcars and rF2. Full marks to both. Good job guys. I can say I like the sharpness rF2 has over pcars. My question in comparison is, is there a way to richen the colors? It would be nice to be able to set color tones and brightness?

    And a million thanks for not having auto exposure. That is sooo annoying in pcars.

    I'm beginning to think they can't fix it unless they would have done it by now. It's ashame because it would be one of the best vr experiences if they did ....I still live in hope ...with a sick bucket at my side lol

    I think it's just a matter of priorities.
    And appearantly, they don't think this should be on the top.

    They did have it in game before the first public DX11 beta but it threw up more issues that they couldn't fix, so it was set aside, hopefully to be revisited one day.
