Rain Effects on Camera gone!

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Zargkhon, Oct 16, 2011.

  1. Howdy folks!

    when I drive in a wet race you normaly get the rain effect on the camera itself, you know, the raindrops and blurry vision. But since a few day I don't get them anymore. I can only see them when I chosse the "track-cam" where you only see the track you drive on.

    Does anybody know why?
  2. I had this happen and it turned out to be the fact that i had changed the cars camera file from highres true to highres false, so i could see the cars arials, so change it back to true
    Hope this helps
  3. Howdy Guys,

    I have a Problem with F1 2011 for some time now. When I drive in the Rain I see the Rain, my Car is Wet, everything seems fine. But when I drive I don' get the Rain Effect on my Camera Lense!!! Blurry Vision is also gone.

    Does anybody know why this is gone?

    If you have downloaded the latest ATi drivers from a few days ago there have been a few issues cropping up about this.

    Have you enabled the antennas in your camera files? Because when I did that, the rain drops didn't appear on my screen either as well as cars in front of me would kick up spray but it wouldn't blur my vision.
    So if you have enable your antennas then you won't see the rain effects and you'll have to disable them to get it back.

  6. Where would i find the specific antenna file please I also have the same issues as OP
  7. Hi Ian,

    Any chance you could tell me the location of the high res camera file that needs changing

    cheers in advance

    Merged threads. One thread is fair enough, two threads aren't necessary. :)

    Okay, so for each car, there is a "camera.xml" file. You need to convert that to text, ideally with Ryder's XML converter.

    In there, there will be heaps of code, look for the lines that say something like
    "high res interior = False" , if it's false then it means you have antennas enabled for that camera view, so to disable it just replace "false" with "true". However, you'll have to do that for every camera view in that file if you want them all to have rain drops, but If not then you can just select which ones you want, because at the start of the camera code , it has the title of the camera, like "head-cam" or something, that's how you know which one your editing.

    However, if, for the camera(s) that you choose, the high res interior says true, then I don't know why you don't have rain drops.

    Hope it helps

  10. Ok so tryed the above and also got xml file of lad i play with all the time and he does NOT have the same problem.

    Now i have rain effects in grand prix not had career race yet but in multiplayer and co-op ( who i play with above mentioned lad) I still have nothing surely there must be more then a select few with this problem

    Have read codies forum but cannot find anything

    I play with everything on ultra using a Nvidia Geforce GTX 550 Ti which i bought about 2 months ago before that i was using a crappy 9950 model

    Really don't understand it

    Cheers Though for you help
  11. In multiplayer you only get raindrops and blurry vision if you are hosting the session. Could also be you only get it when you host Q and R, and not in case of race only.

  12. Well thats a bit crap, hope they sort that out for 2012 because for me its one of the best features of the game. and also that means you have a much better advantage then the host in online games because you have a clearly more visible field of view as no effects on screen

    Cheers for the answer though and help guys
  13. neg we run a full championship online and everyone gets full rain effects when its wet by default. If u don't then its not normal.
  14. In my case I was talking about PC. I assume you're talking about a console version?
