    • Corrected alpha in main menu series graphics to remove light square box around them
    • DynHUD: Improved DeltaTimesWidget in TIME TRIAL mode & fixed initial visibility in CleanHUD; Updated Editor initialization paths
    • Corrected parameters in F-Retro & F-Vintage series for VX portal
    • Mendig: Limited max car count to 20
    • F-Vintage: Fixed Miatra 02 1969 tachometer needle; helmet updates
    • F-Retro: Fixed suspension animation
    • F-Vee: fixed suspension visibility from cockpit
    • F-V12: Updated throttle map
    • F-V10: Main LOD optimization for better performance / lower memory load; fixed mirrors from TV cam;
    • SuperV8: Main LOD optimization for better performance / lower memory load
    • Boxer Cup: Main LOD optimization for better performance / lower memory load
    • Montana: Fixed transmission description to 5-speed sequential

    Steam Achievements have been rescheduled to be introduced in v1.1 at the end of the month.

    ...Not sure what that is but it sounds interesting....will have to investigate. Oddly enough with all the bug fixes listed now and before, I personally have not noticed any, which is great to see that Reiza has got my back like the team of mechanics under the hood...lol.....which lets me just concentrate on driving :D

    When I saw something bout fix for triple screen, I was hoping that it was a fix for DynHUD so you can put things on the side screens (when using multiview), but alas not :(.

    Very cool, glad to see development hasn't slowed down any post 1.0. Glad to see mention of the achievements too.

  6. So does this fix the issue with not booting up on Win7 without SP1?

    Haven't had any of these problems myself but very glad the guys are keeping on squashing the bugs and looking forward to the Brit Pack in a few weeks.

    • Boxer Cup: Main LOD optimization for better performance / lower memory load
    That worked like a charm! The Boxer Cup graphics is much lighter now, thanks a lot!
    As I play the sim in a 2-years old Notebook, I have to lower down several settings in order to run the game at a nice fps rate. With this graphical optimization, my FPS rate goes up to 10 fps more than I had on v1.0, which allowed me to use better graphic settings. That enhance my game experience to a whole new level, as I had to put low track objects before, and missed all the nice stuff on track surroundings.

    Thanks a lot for this, and keep up the LOD optimizations in the future! People with older rigs like me will be very pleased! ;)

    @Alex Sawczuk Loving Automobilista an awful lot! Just having a slight problem when using Copa Montana at Kansai Full, I have to reverse the FFB. Then I have to revert back to normal FFB for other tracks with Copa Montana. Not a big issue but just thought it a little strange this is happening. I can live with it but just wondered if others had come across the same issue?

    Thats an odd issue Paul, FFB is not track specific but it could happen to a specific car. Try running a Steam Integrity check, your realfeelplugin.ini might have gotten corrupted.

  12. Loving the game. Driving more than ever because Reiza keeps fixing things so I don't have to. I'm running the game completely out-of-the-box other than Real Head Motion which for me is mandatory so hope there is continuing support or a replacement for this in Reiza 2017. Really like the VX portal and leaderboards and also the continuing MP popularity of the Vintages which are my favorite vehicles. Performance is outstanding with my aging GTX760 on a single screen and ffb on my trusty G27 is informative and deeply immersive. Reiza are simply masters of design, product strategy, quality and community relations and I find my overall sim racing experience is more positive than ever since I have dedicated myself to this sim exclusively.

    Works a treat @Renato Simioni I deleted realfeelplugin.ini and run the steam integrity check and all is well, FFB feels even better now to be honest! Thank you very much.
