    Good luck getting an answer here. Chistopher pokes his head in here every couple of weeks and Marcel largely ignores the forums completely. You are much more likely to get a response if you ask in the discord channel.

    Thats why all the complainers come here. They can have their bitchfest without being molested by the admins.

    That would infer communication.
    Nah, won't happen.

    Hello Christopher. When will we be able to rejoin a session that was played earlier. I like to race the 1000km at Bathurst but cant do it in one hit. I like to race it over a few nights. Thanks for your help.
    Gary.

    You can rejoin a session over the replay function, you could even join in an AI-car afaik. The only letdown is, that sometimes, TC and some setup values were resetted for me, but i don't know, if this is a permanent issue.
    EDIT: (Whait, is this not possible in the new UI?):eek:

    I've read almost every post in this thread but at the end, I'm wondering: who buys a simracing game for their user interface?
    Rather than spending three years developing this one, it would have been better to spend this time developing all the domains in which rfactor2 is lagging behind its rivals and to fix all the bugs identified since a long time ago.

    No one buy a simracing game for the UI, but many don't buy it because it has a bad UI, after trying the demo. The new UI is there not only for give it a better look but is there mostly to allow new features like the competition sistem, broadcasting tools etc. 3 years for a beta though, this is the problem...

    The old UI couldn't cope with things like the proposed competition system, and was hampering efforts to make any changes at all. The underlying UI system, tied (in spaghetti-like fashion) to the game code, was largely unchanged since 2006 and needed cleaning out. This is about more than what you see.

    I don't know if someone already mentioned this in another post. In the new UI there is no possibility to activate or deactivate plugins and there is also no tab to change the customizable HUD e.g. the popular SHQM. I Also didn't find the option to limit the FPS on the graphics options.

    Thank you guys for still improve this lovely SIM.

    Tried to experiment the new UI today. After opting in for the public-beta, all I got when starting the game was a message saying that rFactor2 tried to start with parameters "+path=".." +workshopsync", press ok or cancel. Pressing ok, the message changes for rFactor2 tried to start with parameters "+path=".." +workshopsync +path=".." +workshopsync" and every subsequent "ok" only duplicates the parameters. Pressing cancel closes the launcher.
    Tried starting from Steam, from shortcut, clicking on .exe, as admin, as normal user... nada.
    There's no parameters on my launcher nor Steam, by the way.

    Anyone?

    Back to old UI.

    As joker68 said, OK didn't help, infinite loop.

    Hello
    I got the Rfactor 2 update for Feb today but the customize tab is blank and I have to shut down the computer to get out of it. I cant put in race laps, practice sessions or anything else. Please can you help me, I don't know what to do. I have uploaded the latest driver on the computer.
    Thank you.

    The update came a few days ago is gets better.
    A draggable seek bar is really useful. Tire wear on session setting is also good.
    But, As I said in the previous post, There aren't the pedal angle and steering angle on the spectator screen.
    And also, notice after this update, there isn't the lap indicator in the new UI.
    This is the most serious problem in the new UI and one of the strongest points of rF2.
    Please add these things. Without these, I can't play this properly.
