    Please have a tool to automatically produce a car image for icons or give us a photo mode in the showroom.

    One request I'm going to make is a few more options in the opponent selection section of the menu.
    Right now you can select a carset to add the list of opponents in the opponents window. What would be greatly helpful is an option to click-to-highlight individual opponents from the list to be in the race.
    I know you can do this already in the add-ai section of the race weekend, but the option to pre-select specific ai opponents would be amazing.

    Those "play" (GO) buttons have some of them displayed backwards, lol. Even if they are on the right side they should point to the right. Unless we're speaking Arabic here all of a sudden. :D

    I forgot to say about another problem…
    You can't adjust tire wear on setting screen.
    I believe these problems would be fixed.

    Thank you Studio 397. New UI is Prety good. I think good looks it, and useful overall.

    But I found some errors at the moment.
    ・ Fuel setting does not work (Saved settings are not loaded)
    ・ At the replay, I can not see control, time or vehicle status (and I want TV function for replay, time difference, automatic camera switch, etc.)
    ・ rF2 will stop switching to “All Tracks & cars” from other rfmod.
    ・ Box view is distorted when MultiView is turned off on triple screens
    ・ No tire wear settings at the offline
    ・ Graphic settings (post effects, etc.) change without permission

    I think New UI has great potential. Please continue great work.

    I simply can not believe that there is so many small things that have not been noticed by the test team.
    Surely they did a comparison between and old UI to the new UI side by side to see if it's all in there?
    Most people these days have a wide screen, 3 screens or VR, so why would you take up valuable screen area with the Tabs across the bottom? They would werk much better on the side going down, then we may not have to scroll to see what's not on the screen.
    The white background is too bright in a dark room especially at night.

    I'll reinstall the beta when things are fixed, ie: tyre temps

    Yes, that what S397 said. The beta is to test that everything still works, then they can move on to changing how it does things and adding new functions.

    I think that this happened after a SteamVR update. I've had several updates since it started, but not yet fixed. Seems similar to the Open Composite version.

    Yes we did it's more complicated than that, there are multiple considerations. A few things we do not have ready for public yet. The point of this beta is to get feedback, so yeah opt-out if you are just here to rant, it's not helpful ;)

    First impressions are that it looks great! Obviously still a lot to be done, but it's a good start!

    Oh man yes this! I dislike the big? That even some S397 cars have and if we could just take the picture ourselves that would be great.

    How do you generate any icons? We need to be able to do this ourselves so we don't have big ? Question marks for cars that don't have an icon!

    As is already known, selecting All cars & tracks makes rF2 freeze and it has to be closed through taks manager.
    I needed to select All cars & tracks, so my only idea was to unistall the RFMOD in use, hoping it would then auto-select All cars & tracks.
    Done, but when i returned to the main page i got this error and rF2 crahsed:

    The icons, IMHO, have never been an improvement over the rF1 spinner.

    Lots of unused space in the new UI, lettering could be larger, also too many clicks to select cars and tracks, can't those options be put on the opening screen as they were in the old UI ?, the old UI was more useful, not as many clicks to get where you want to go, just needed more vibrant colors rather than the dull greyish look it has.

    Looking at the screen shots the simplicity & clean minimalist look is very nice no need for big letters

    Be great after the bugs are sorted if there could be an “ advanced users “ section where there’s settings relating to all those things in the files that can be changed like water going over cars & rear mirror view distance etc
