    FYI
    When using the new UI and you are using the shortcut for the Dedicated Server - you must be in the game first. Then go to Windows and then host. This is because as soon as you go into Dedicated Server it says the game is running in Steam (even though it's not).

    The second issue I found and resolved thanks to Stefan with his WeatherPlugin which wasn't working as the game was already running. The solution for those that want to use the new UI and use this great tool do the following:
    Disable plugin in the custompluginvar json by text editor
    Start rf2
    Enable plugin in editor, save
    Run weather client
    Start dedi
    (Disable again, save)
    Presto - the WeatherPlugin works again.

    So my issues were can I create create a mod - Yes (Using folder structure - Mas2)
    Can I use dedicated server to host - Yes (using a shortcut)
    Can I use Weather Client Plugin - Yes (as above)
    And using the New UI

    When I launch rfconfig I have a window popup saying "failed to load advance effects file". I click OK then the same popup appears. I click OK again and then the dialog box graphical configuration appears. I can change or choose my setups. I click OK and then the poup window comes again. I click once more OK and the popup disappears. In fact I am not sure if it really works.
    Why rfconfig exe is in the bin32 folder and not in bin64? Why is rfconfig not integrated in new UI?

    i would assume rfconfig in bin32 folder because its an old 32bit program ...

    philman, you have two installs on the same machine ?

    Yesterday, in vr, a lot of flickering, momentary double images to the point of nausea for short moments.

    And no improvement by degrading the settings.

    Never has been a rFConfig.exe in the bin64 folder.
    rFConfig is already integrated in the new UI, but i've found a problem (that could be yours too).
    I've found an issue that I have not been able to solve with the new UI options.
    When the rF2 changes the Graphics card to Auto, if your PC has two, rF2 can change the GPU and you need to change it.
    I've not found this option in the new UI.
    To solve this problem, i've changed to the old UI, selected the correct GPU and returned to the new UI.

    When the old IU disappears, how can we do that?
    I don't quite agree with you; in my opinion, the rfconfig is not really integrated into the new IU. There is this dialog box at game launch that gives the choice between the graphical configuration and the game launch.

    I still think that too many tabs for everything, the old interface is still much better, hopefully they can improve it as soon as possible and bring more things together on each screen ...

    The information is NOT in the menu, it's in the config tool which is activated at the start. When you click on rF2 at Steam, you then get the option to launch rF2 or the Config tool. Since rF2 is FAMOUS for loosing track of your config information, I run the tool prior to loading rF2 every FRIGGIN' time.

    Yes it's what I do before launching RF2. The problem is that this tool doesn't work anymore in the old UI. (see my posts 875,876,877)

    Opened the showroom
    -> No overlay
    Had to kill rF2 by task manager, to get out of there.
    Selected car was the 911 RSR

    If you open the showroom again it should work, it happened to me each time when I delete the cbash and shaders folder or after an update. Opening the showroom for the first has no overlay and no way to close rf2 like you said, but the next time the showroom works until the next update or clearing shaders and cbash.

    I thought I was ready to switch to the new UI.
    Setting up a mod - check
    Running dedicated server - check
    Setting up weather client - check
    So in game multiplayer using new UI - and it doesn't seem to be able to switch from session to session without freezing. Eg) Practice to qualifying. Then have to crash out of game.Tried three times and reverted to old UI - and it worked first time.
    Edit: I created the mod in 1.118 and now it’s not crashing. If I used my previous mod created in 1.117 (and/or old UI) I get the freezing/crashing.
