    I re-opted in for this new ui update.
    I like how you've got tyre temp/pressures back, but I don't see a chatbox, is it there?
    I've had 3 sessions and each exit of the game just results in a white screen (it's still there in the background while I type)
    Anyway big improvements, but hmm not there yet. Looking forward to the next update.
    Opt out fer now.

    things not going well after update;
    strobing effect on the menu transitions is worst if possible
    gaming loading time is at least twice as long
    in VR same settings as before update is now a slide show...(maybe because cant use opencomposite anymore)
    showroom is black, cant exit from it
    Have to exit completely from steam to shut down rfactor

    I regenerated the entire userdata folder this morning.

    I still have small problems with image scrolling and image freeze in the UI (not in the game), only since the forced switch to steamVR.

    It does not matter, it is not blocking, I am sure that within 3 months the VR during navigation in the UI will be optimized (I hope).

    Nothing blocking, just annoying enough.

    The race was run earlier today using the standard build. I've just opted in to the beta and gone straight to loading that replay.

    Hello,
    To play with the latest update of the new player interface, you have to choose 1117 or UI?

    Just advising - I could not get UI to work and it was due to one of my old replay files. I deleted all replays and it was fine (You could always rename these) Reported to Marcel and he knows why, so I guess it will be fixed at some point. I am letting you know here because there is no other FAQ (yet)

    Well i decided to fire up rF2 after reading about the latest Ui update and was greeted with a 5 minute install of a couple of mods (official) while staring at a blinding white screen then a restart required , then the same white screens , like really bright screens only to find question marks everywhere for placeholders for cars that aren't up to date , black and white previews of car skins ( i can really tell what they look like being black and white :rolleyes:) kind of defeats the purpose of a preview .
    Some track don't even load a preview track out line in the track selection area , all tracks are still 20.834km long .
    Exit from rF2 and consider uninstalling , thank fuk for R3E, AMS, ACC and the looming AMS2 ;)
    Feels really sad that this is what has become of rF2 to me :(

    There you go :rolleyes:

    dumb things in UI:
    joining a server, if you cant download the content you get kicked out to main menu instead of back to list.
    joining a server, if content begins downloading you cant escape out...i just hit a server that required 41 pieces of download to join, had to control-alt-del to stop it.

    Much improved over previous version that was hardly usable, I like how the setup pages are organized.
    Shouldn't look for favorite servers if not asked to do so.
    Cheers.

    New UI is good. but I find new errors.

    Driver name can not display (TAB key).
    Drivers position(or change) is incorrect when replay mode.
    3rd springs can not setup to indipendent.
    >Added tyre wear, temperatures and hot pressures to the garage page, so you can see those after you get out of your car.
    I cant see tyre wear in garage.
    InkedGRAB_2827_LI.jpg
    Monitors aspect is incorrect when triple screens. (I dont want to use triple screens config)
    Text chat is inconvenience, I want other place too. (ex. Under camera monitor)
    Record replay could not ON when practice.

    Btw, Almost Japanese players continue to suffer from lag when disconect other drivers.(edit:It is only race)
    >Forced setup and/or upgrades.
    I think Foeced UPGRADE is KEY for this problem.
    Already my friend drivers starting to move to ACC and/or iRacing, Because these problems.
    So I hope that this will advance quickly.

    Best regards,
