    Hi there,

    I am enjoying the game a lot, but I strongly dislike the cockpit camera view because it reduces the visuals of the track... :frown: the interior of the car just occupies the whole screen and there is not enough room for the rest in order to play the game without stressing my eyes too much...

    Is it possible to zoom the camera in that cockpit view a bit?

    You can map buttons to move the camera forward or backward. Also there should be a setting for the POV (point of view) that you can adjust.

    What I want to know is how to make my windscreen clean! They have put this ugly texture over it that makes it look like the glass is covered in dirt/dust. I have 5mins remaining on my demo and can't see myself buying this if this can't be fixed.

    Its possible. You must edit the file "driverwindow.dds" with Photoshop. Each driver has its own file so there are 34 files to be edited.

    I found it guys:

    I did a google search for rFactor virtual mirrors and I found the following instructions on the enabling VM for rFactor:

    1. Go to the PLR file that is found here - X:\Program Files\rFactor\UserData\YourName\YourName.plr

    2. Open the PLR file in Notepad.

    3. Under [ Graphic Options ] change Rearview="1" to Rearview="3" and Virtual Rearview In Cockpit="0" to Virtual Rearview In Cockpit="1"

    [ Graphic Options ]
    Broadcast Overlay="1"
    Texture Detail="3"
    Vertical FOV Angle="34" // 34=use default, otherwise is the FOV for attached cameras (horiz is calculated based on aspect ratio)
    Rearview="1" // 0=Off, 1=Center and Side, 2=Center only, 3=Side only (virtual mirrors only, in-car mirrors are on/off)
    Allow Rearview In Swingman="0"
    Virtual Rearview In Cockpit="0"
    Rearview Width="64.00000"
    Rearview Height="14.00000"
    Rearview Cull="1" // Whether to cull objects in the rearview based on visgroups in the SCN file
