    The rear view side mirrors are not displaying on my low graphics settings.
    I have a fairly old PC and am unable to use the higher screen res and graphics settings so I have all the graphics low to maintain a decent frame rate.
    Does anyone know how I can switch on the rear view mirrors (using low res graphics)?
    Thanks for any help here.

    Dear All,
    Please, does anyone know whether you can force the mirrors to work in low graphics mode?

    You have to edit the file hardware_settings_options.xml in the \F1 2011\system\ directory.

    find this line : <ref category="mirrors" option="off" /> and replace with this : <ref category="mirrors" option="low" />
    edit the line depending on your detail level.

    Sorry but it doesn't seem to be working for me. There's a bunch of lines concerning mirrors and I set them all to low but it didn't work.
