    Oh man new UI take 2...:

    -15 mins to watch disk light
    -3 different "Race" buttons on the main screen

    Time for MP, maybe there is someone online (...):

    -Horizontal scrolling with large tiles in server browser, you change this but seriously why it this horizonal stuff the default
    -Can only select pace car when I join server
    -No cancel on the join it's either join spectate or "quit game"
    -Crash when joining with the pace car

    OK SP it is:
    - Track selection, first change to vertical, why is the select button on the other end of the screen from the track list where you click to select tracks?
    -Ok I still can only select the pace car this happened in the old UI as well and there was some weird way to fix that I don't remember. Something with series? Do I need to select "All cars and tracks"? No... "GT3 Dave"? No... Who knows...
    -I give up where is the exit game button on the "race" screen? Oh I first have to click start in the top left. Of course.

    So maybe in a few months...

    I understand that resources are very limited but a lot of this layout/buttons/this button goes to this screen etc stuff could have been avoided with a pencil and some blank sheets of paper to make UI mockups or something.

    If the new UI isn't working for you just Opt out of all beta and use the default UI.
    Select and Accept All Cars and Tracks.
    Not very weird.

    Defects of the new interface, the replay is not complete (gearbox ratio, speed etc...) incomplete choice of cars, shaky image, incomplete loading of circuits at 78%, erroneous loading of the set-up for the cars.

    I don't like the last updates to the new beta UI. Starting up rF2 has become very slow. After the logo disappears I see a white screens for more than a minute and then the UI finally appears. Also updating packages takes forever now and when that is done a restart is necessary and the waiting starts again. I did not have these issues on the first release of the new beta UI, so what changed? This way it has become unworkable for me and I will switch back to the old UI soon if this is not fixed.

    When opting into the new menu does it install the whole sim again or just the UI?

    Only the UI. It's very quick.

    Is it possible in the weather section, to set the first tab (Humidity, temperature, wind, etçª) and paste it to the others so we don't need to set one by one, which is pretty annoying? Thanks!

    I always thought Humidity, temperature, wind have no affect.

    AFAIK you're correct, they don't do anything.

    Temperature, at least, influences the engine, or the radiator setting... problem is that in rF2 we only "guess", nobody knows what does what or what works or not. Anyway i would like to have a way to configure a session without changing every tab...

    I tested out the new UI yesterday. As a graphic designer, my opinion is that it looks kind of amateur-ish. Not particularly "modern" design, not much consistency in layout between screens, fonts too huge, unclear what's a button and what isn't. Not being negative, just my professional constructive opinion. :)

    The flow seems a little convoluted and unintuitive at first. I found it a bit easier to navigate if I used "list" view. I would prefer that list view be the default rather than the graphic interface - it doesn't provide enough information on a single page.

    Most of the vehicle icons appear as question marks which I would imagine is due to the beta status. I fear that modders will not jump through the hoops required to create icons for their vehicles and we'll all be looking at a screen full of question marks, which stresses me the hell out for some reason :)

    Yes the question marks WIIL be the responsibility of the mod creators or private users. Which means some will never be updated. Also mod makers are Leary of further changes to the UI that may break the car icons, so some of those people are holding off creating the required images til further development occurs.

    I have an odd bug with the new UI.

    I've elected not to install cars and tracks from the Reiza DLC; with the old UI there is no issue with these selections being recognised. With the new UI all of the Reiza cars and tracks are downloaded.

    I've set the Launcher.config to read only and with Disable Workshop Auto-Subscribe:True

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    @Travis I am going on a thought here :eek: with no actual testing as I am on the default UI.
    The Launcher config won't work with the beta UI because there is no Launcher in the beta UI.
    Or is that too logical.:oops:

    I have formulae_2018 updated every time (trying to download). And it cannot be undone in any way.

    I bought only FE Gen2.
