Ah, but I would rather try it out for myself to see if it is true ;)...but does it have a dedicated 'Photo Mode' where you can move the camera around to compose a screen shot, or is it just pause the replay and that's all you get :O_o:

Here's a long-winded answer and sorry for the late reply but to answer your question, yes, it does have a dedicated photo mode.

Photo mode can be accessed during a race, in free roam or in replay. You get full camera control. Think of it as a "drone" style where you can fully move around your car (even at great distances). Pan, tilt, zoom, aperture control, depth of field, brightness, contrast, temperature, vignette, bloom, etc. During replay mode, photo mode allows you to even move the car through the scene.

TBH, there's more control in photo mode than many sims offer (not that this is a sim). As a photographer, I find a lot of enjoyment taking screenshots in games so I like to praise a good photo mode.

Thank you for taking the time to reply :):thumbsup:...have had a look on You Tube and found a few videos that did show Photo Mode in action.
...another question is....does 'Art of Rally' have 'Triple Screen' functionality, and not necessarily true triple screen support, just having 3 monitors working.

I honestly don't know. It does have great ultrawide support, though.

I'm surprised by the poor performance on my media rig with i5 9600k and 2060, can't run anywhere near native 4k and maintain 60fps
Mine struggles as well, I’ve got 5700rx and can play a lot of games 4k but this one I need to drop settings to get it at decent frame rate.. it looks simple but seems to be heavy on my card
