    Hello,

    at night, huge FPS drop can occur at starting line with several car with headlights on, what could be the display option to be modified to improve this?
    Thanks.

    From the FAQ :

    I´m getting poor performance during night races.

    Look up the "Max Headlights="256" setting on your PLR file. You can turn that way down to even single digits, it should be a big performance saver. Do expect a performance hit relative to daylight racing in any case.

    Perhaps with graphical settings. Never investigated that.
