    What is currently the best option to use 2 video & Graphic profiles and switch easy/fast between them?
    For example:
    • profile A = for vr use
    • profile B = for monitor use.

    I just use a batch file for each that copies a saved config_DX11.ini file, like this

    Code:
    @echo off
    setlocal
    set rF2UserData=c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData
    
    echo Set config.ini for 2K monitor
    copy "%rF2UserData%\config_DX11_2K.ini" "%rF2UserData%\Config_DX11.ini"
    
    Perhaps a good idea to have a different user profile for each as well so you can set up different controls for VR / non-VR too. For example I map the "glance left/right" buttons on my wheel to other things for VR.

    You should change your name to Seven Batch Files Smiles.

    Nice.
    I will play/try with a batch file. Cause i also want to use different graphic settings. But those are located in the player.json under "Graphic Options" settings.

    Short extra question. Does the order of actions have impact?
    So set all the files before running the rf2.exe?
    Example:
    Code:
    @echo off
    REM Set path
    setlocal
    set rF2UserData=E:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData
    
    REM Set optimized video settings
    echo Set config.ini for VR
    copy "%rF2UserData%\config_DX11_VR.ini" "%rF2UserData%\Config_DX11.ini"
    
    REM Set optimized graphic settings
    echo Set player.json for VR
    copy "%rF2UserData%\player\player_VR_stable.json" "%rF2UserData%\player\player.json"
    
    REM Start all required programs
    start "Simhub" "C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\SimHubWPF.exe"
    start "CrewChief" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Britton IT Ltd\CrewChiefV4\CrewChiefV4.exe"
    start "Simucube2" "C:\Program Files\Simucube 2\Simucube 2 True Drive.exe"
    start "rF2" "E:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin64\rFactor2.exe"
    
    Extra tips are welcome :)

    Good stuff :cool: I was thinking of using rF2's
    Code:
    --profile
    command line switch and having multiple "Player" folders but what you have works.
    A tip
    Code:
    start "CrewChief" "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Britton IT Ltd\CrewChiefV4\CrewChiefV4.exe" RF2_64BIT
    will set CC to rF2. If you then set the "Run immediately" property in CC then it will start rF2 for you.

    If you use Discord for voice in multiplayer you could add
    Code:
    start  "Discord" "%LOCALAPPDATA%/Discord/Update.exe" --processStart Discord.exe
