    I'm guessing there are still issues since the update? been unable to get in or stay in the game long enough to grab the new stuff, still seems to suffer with any update with RR always have issue with it.

    It's not even in it, but the point that triples are now handled within the game rather than with startup arguments means customisation can be made more easily. I'm not clever enough to know ins and outs but the way triples and single screens are handled means that while it's an easy implementation for a single screen it wasn't possible on the triples. Once the new menus are stable in their current form I guess more features can be added.

    How do you opt into the new UI?

    It's supposed to be secret, but it isn't, but I can't tell you either.

    it seems so,i have managed to log in once after a few attempts and actually owned all content in the game even though i only bought the starter pack a few days ago :D i'm sure it's just a bug and will be resolved as soon as maintenance is over

    After the update, the cars are undrivable on my Fanatec DD2. The accelerator pedal is vibrating, there is virtually no FFB and the car wanders all over the track, steering as it likes :(

    Was able to go in a few hours ago, update was not all done yet I guess as lots of waiting times and few errors but was able to try the IDR. FFB felt as normal.

    Yeah, I even went back to standard settings - I then switch from running the 2016 Audi TT at the Hockenheimring to the 2015 version turned down the wheel slip setting to get rid of the vibrations and the 2015 drives fine, jumping back into the 2016 I get the wandering steering, very light, etc. Maybe it is something to do with the car's own setup file "interfereing" with the new update.... hmmmm

    Sounds like you're still using an old setup with the '16 car. The physics files loaded for each season are the very same ones, so there should be zero differences as you swap years.

    Hi Alex, yes, seems it was something to do with this - I deleted the "old" setup file and I've got pretty much back to the old feel - the FFB does feel somewhat different - shall take another look tomorrow.

    Hey Bull, the new UI has a good triples set up page instead of the Steam launch parametes. I managed to "fudge" my numbers using the test page and got my seat position near enough to pass. It's not correct to my set up but at least it gets my head positioned so I only have my simhub dash in front of the in game car dash.
    May be worth having a go at the new UI also for you.
    Use -webmenu launch parameter and remover your -triscr 6773828839277w9 (random) and set it in the new menu.
