    I just started playing around with AI racing, have mostly done testing only to first learn how the cars handle in SCE (as I noticed they're quite different from AC). In an earlier trial with lower AI, I started at pole, then at start all I could hear is the audio beep, but don't see any lights. Is there a key to activate them? I've to try yet from a lower position.

    There are no virtual lights, just the ones that are physicaly present at the starting line. So it can happen, that you stand under the lights and can't see them, or you stand too far back. I suppose it's just like in real life. a workaround is to look at the HUD with the lap time and start, when the time starts running. Alternatively I have seen a HUD plugin where you could see virtual starting lights somewhere but I cat remember what it was called.

    I don't like those big bulky lights that appear like spooky ghosts in front of your eyes. Having only the "real" lights is the way to go IMO.

    I just go when the cars in front of me start going. I'm never in the front to have to worry about it. ;)

    I think it's just active at a rolling start.

    But i always use "Use track default" for start type and only had rolling starts, so maybe this doesn't shop up on standing starts. Don't know :)

    Pole is usually the worst for this since depending on the light's position and the field of view you use it can be impossible to see without head movement. For any other situation, such as further back on the grid, a narrower field of view can aid you in spotting the lights at start.
