  3. Apart from the introduction of sp & mp, i think this update is better than the last update. I mean the last update will always be the best update but damn... wtcc, time of day, steering detection etc... Oh and the store, oh my god the store looks way better now. Kudos to the html & css dudes/dudettes over there.

  4. Ohh I'll add two feature requests for future updates (small ones imo):
    Please add a "Exit game" button in the new R3E interface, actually, add it top right corner in EVERY menu, so we don't have to click 3-4 times just to quit the game for the day.
    Also, please add a "buy ALL liveries" option to the store, with the same discount system that you use to check if we already own some of it.

    I think you can just keep pressing escape and you'll end up in the portal asking you if you want to quit and just press enter

    All the gear, no idea...

    After a spinning indicator goes on for a while and a red quit box appears underneath I then get taken to a page asking me to login and on the right side in a box it says "error 503 portal services unavailable"

    edit: just tried the r3e web page and that is also giving me an error when i try to login

    500: Internal Server Error
    Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Please try to refresh your page.

  16. There is something strange with the steering force.
    After restarting the race or leader board challenge the steering force is much heavier.

    edit: The FFB is not the same anymore like before the update. Was happy with it....
    On every track i tested it's the same problem , the steering force change.


    Edit: Wheel G25

    Yeah, all you should do in your drivers is to disable spring and dampers.
    You can change the degrees of rotation in the game now (setup menu).
