    Hi can anyone tell me are they going to add track & car to the list in multiplayer to find servers in the new UI ?
    As its very hard right now to know what is on a server if its not put in the description section.

    I just can't get this thing to work, removed reshade and verified the integrity of the files, switched to borderless in the graphics config but each time I start up I'm staring at a blank screen for 10 seconds before the game crashes back to Steam. No error message neither.

    Seems 1118 fixed it, tried to load up the public Beta again and now it doesn't crash anymore.

    I buy the Berlin E-Prix and my HD with Windows & games is broken, so I hope enjoy that track in the next week when I have a new HD. :p

    You should submit a bug report for the track breaking your HD :p

    just tried new ui for first time
    onestly not much impressed
    for me the only useful visual group menu is this

    [​IMG]

    others visual menu options are useless and uncomfortable



    for s397
    in server list, search functions don't accept numbers. fix needed

    Hi, first I would like to thank all the efforts put on development to all the staff and specially for listening to community.

    Just checked the new UI for league admin purposes and found that all driver information is not avaiable anymore at replays.
    We can't see current position of selected driver, current lap, current sector and laptimes, and lost the data from throttle and braking.
    This kind of information was essential for incident reviews and penalties and we really need it on the final UI if we cannot select switch to the old one manually.
    Please don't forget about that info on replays! Thanks.

    A big +1. With the new UI set to become the default in the near future, this information needs to be restored to replays.

    Thank you guys for the new update, not tested everything but the new UI is looking good for now. just one thing.. The question mark (?) symbol in the thumbnail gives a 'sense of lost'

    this maybe asked before but ...
    upload_2020-5-22_16-4-27.png


    will this stay so ? No Categories, no classification, no search field, no sort, no race button ? This blob list is still missing basic (computer) functionalities, thats the worst thing about the old UI for me, not the graphical side and the new UI is a 1:1 copy of this bad design.

    In the Opponent filter i do not see what classes i have selected, not highlighted

    That is exactly what S397 said in the roadmaps.
    And they will use this base to implement new funcionalities.

    There is and was nothing much wrong with the functionality. The problem was the structure of the UI. Not just the inner structure but the usability. And it wasn't changed.
    I'm almost a fanboy, I have all the content and all the confidence in the studio, and I use this sim only. But this UI is mass as a design.
    It has all the unexplainable colours, typography, placements, empty spaces... If you design for yourself, it's OK to care about only the aesthetics, but for someone else is another story. It's not just your taste anymore. You should be able to explain Everything you have done, and the "it looks cool" and the "it felt right to do that" does not work. I can hardly imagine that part in this case.
    Every pixel in a UI must serve the usability and nothing else, colours, placements, distances, decoration, and many more included.

    It's suposed that when they release the build with the new UI by default, all the current funcionalities will be implemented.
    And this will be the base to add new things.

    I don't understand why you quote me.
    Akela_DE has said that the new UI is a copy oi the old one and i've said that this is what S397 intended to do.
    I've not said if it's good or bad or if i like it or not.

    Really not a fan of the new UI:

    - blinding white interface. How cool can this be in a dark lit room ?
    - slow animations (slide, fade in/out, ...)
    - slower to operate than old UI
    - wasted space
    - blurry fonts and graphics (car images) on my 4K screen as if it was a 1080p upscale or something...

    It makes the AMS2 UI look like a miracle in comparison, and even that one has room for improvements. Even the old rF2 UI is what it is but it is at least fast to operate and not killing your eyes.

    I appreciate all the work that has been put on the new UI, but on the usability side it is not here.
