    I know these have been updated recently as well, but they were already updated to dx11 before, and now got some patches.

    Hope they fix the smoke someday. Ugly is a understatement regarding it.

    Very happy that progress on this great sim continue, thanks Studio397!

    *Don't use rain effects during my races though, but still would like to do a Lemans race with rain during one of these times.

    Go to X:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Installed\Locations & if you have the folders:

    ISI_Atlanta & ISI_Palm Beach, then delete both these folders.
