    I have let Joseph know about this via PM but I am unable to make the final round due to being away in the UK.

    Good luck to everyone and hope you all have a good race :thumbsup:

    Nope, the server build / patch version does not appear to be at fault for this issue as far as I can see. According to the server, Craig does connect successfully, so I suspect that something else is responsible for causing the loss of connection.

    If the problem persists then let me know, and I will update the server to try and hopefully resolve the issue.

    So people are aware, the big Windows update may mess up USB drivers. I've been messing around with my wheel for an hour now and it's still not working properly again.
    So I suggest not updating for now.

    I normally delay mine about 2 weeks until i see if others have issues, so thank you for letting us know. I will refrain from updates until after the race.

    I completely reinstalled the Fanatec drivers which seems to have fixed most issues right now. Don't know if will work for Logitech/Thrustmaster drivers.

    I saw the rain in the garage, but the moment I went on track the rain stopped Now it is not raining in the server... I think it may just be a glitch but it is not raining but the track is wet.

    Edit; It certainly feels as if it is raining... this is weird.

    Unfortunately there is nothing that you can do to resolve this problem, as far as I'm aware. The inability to (clearly) see rainfall when in the car is a known issue; this is not the first time that I have seen reports from drivers about being able to see rain while watching the "TV monitor" in the garage menu, but not while driving.

    However, I believe that you can now see the rain intensity, as well as the track wetness (as a percentage) via the HUD. I appreciate that this does not resolve the problem, or necessarily help, but at least it will allow you to see whether or not it is raining.

    Think the server is glitched, there is no rain

    There's no "glitch" - it is currently not raining at Silverstone, so the in-game weather is correct.
