    Wondering if anyone had tried anything to force the water surface and car body/nose reflections to kick in earlier?.

    cheers

    Been looking at some of the config files and it seems Codemasters have set a max limit on these things, so guessing that it wont be possible to go beyond that :(

    You can add more reflection with the materials.xml file.

    It would work in conjunction with the particular speccoc file for a car.

    You'd need to tinker a bit....but you can get a complete mirror finish, all the way down to almost a complete matt finish.

    That could be a LOD setting in the hardware files that could do with turning up.

    Not sure really....just my guess.

    Anyone uses ENB to make them look better? I really wish to use ENB or inFX on F1 2012.

    Sure joe, sorry about that. Just said about the ENB because makes the reflections and lots of other things more realistic. Anyway whats really annoying to me is the bad quality of the mirrors image quality. I did some tests with xml files yesterday and didn't got any good thing. At least i did some changes in the hardware_settings_config.xml to increase shadows and reflections but i haven't noticed any difference. :cry:
