    Hi,
    Since the new build I am getting the option for accelleration of real road but not the choice of any saved real road files. EG Practice is always green.
    Also the screen shots folder is empty after I try to take shots.

    BTW I did a lite install and copied my packages and player file across.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I think RealRoad is saved under UserData\player\settings\<trackname> folders. If you haven't copied that over, you won't have any realroads to load until you save new ones again.

    EDIT: It might be in another folder, but the files you've copied over, will definitely not allow you to reload realroads from a previous install.

    I have saved real roads since but still no option to use them.
    Ill try the scripted weather section.

    EDIT 2
    OK thanks-found it. You have to be in scripted weather to get the saved real road option. Thats new.
    Cheers.
    any ideas on the screen shots?

    Screenshots work for me. Press F12. But check your assigned button.

    Maceij,
    My FPS went up!
    I run AMD Graphics card (7850 twin Frozr) and with the recent new drivers and 798 its "smokin".
    So sorry buddy I cant help, but there are ppl here who prob can.
    Maybe show you GPU and CPU details?? Not sure.
