Wow, Spa looks awesome in VR in my new HP Reverb G2 that arrived Yesterday. The trees also in distance look really awesome feels much more realistic than ACC. Also frame times are very good around 10-11ms in 4k+ res.
You mus be kidding right? I dont use VR but comparing RF2 1990s look to ACC makes me ask if you have by any chance ingested some psychedelics....

No missing textures here, what are you're ingame settings? Screen shot would be good, I'll try on my machine and see if i get same results if you like?
Thanks for helping Here you go:
System is i7 9700K @5.0Ghz, 32Gb RAM, RTX3080 GPU if that's of any interest. All the other tracks are fine. Weird, huh?

Call off the dogs: I found the solution on Studio397s forum. I rolled back to the old UI this week, because my mouse stopped working after the last UI update, the solution to the missing texture problem was to change to the new UI again...is this part of a cunning plan to get us to change to the new UI? :D Only joking....

Thanks @Badwheels I was using AI in the context of the topic of Sim Racing, or if you prefer computer racing game.
I will now refer to them as 'computer generated cars that are not controlled influenced in their ability/skill set by human interaction and only can be modified in tendencies by changes made to a game computer file'

Wait wait.
Was that a joke or is new UI really needed for spa textures?
I am having trouble believing it.
Can anybody else confirm that?

GT, it is always handy to keep your motherboard/mouse/usb type drivers ready to deploy. Windows 10 updates have messed with my mouse several times over the years. Try re-installing your drivers and see if that cures the problem.

I always use the "old" UI if i'm not being blackmailed to use it.
I haven't asked for a new one though. :D
Don‘t buy Spa then. I changed to the new UI and the textures were there. Changed back to the old UI, no textures. Cunning eh?

I've tried going from old to new and back again three times, I rolled back to the UI this week because my mouse pointer stopped working in the new UI., in VR. So now I have the choice of the new UI and Spa, but no VR ( the VR works, but I can't select anything because my mouse pointer doesn't work in VR), or the old UI where my mouse pointer works, but missing textures in Spa.
At the moment I'm trying a workaround with new mouse drivers, in the hopes that I can use VR in the new UI, and also be able to use my mouse to select things, and exit when I'm finished. At the moment I have to ALT+TAB out of the game because the buttons don't react to my mouse. Always something new with rF2.....

Did you try all the suugestions which people have made in this thread?
Somebody said something about checking the stretch UI button or something, but in the screenies you posted it didn't look like the button/box was checked?

Have you checked the new function key to hide the cursor? Maybe that is your problem, iirc it's in controls/other.

Also the new UI gets the interface rendered in a different thread, it may be very possible that it unloads the workload for the ingame graphics rendering thus making it in a more effective way.

You do know that AI learning is a feature of rF2, don't you?
Tried telling peeps 100 times throughout the years

You can tell people are here just to bleat because they will never acknowledge what you said or ever mention trying it

I mean if other studios had Ai learning they would say it's the most awesome thing since slice bread :rolleyes:

Personally I can't remember the last time a field of my rF2 never swapped places because they do real things like understeer and oversteer , other random stuff that mixes order
You should all spend a weekend playing with aggression strength and limiter

More limiter without running a qualifying session so they are not gridded by outright pace will have them passing ;)

P.S.

Another good thing is how rF2 Ai drop pace later in race but problem there is it happens at a set period no matter how long or short race is so in 5 lap race the Ai will start to drop off near end which obviously they should not

There is no conspiracy here. Spa works just fine in both the old and new UI. Just opt out of public beta. Spa does not render correctly in older builds. We built some new shaders that are used (on the trees for example).
I'm experiencing this in the latest build. If I could use the mouse pointer in VR, I would gladly stay with the new UI. Until this week when the latest update broke my mouse I've been using it since it became available . In 2-D mode everything is wonderful in the new UI, but I drive in VR. And the mention of the conspiracy theory was just a joke, there was a big grin smiley in the post. I have an English sense of humour, and the opportunity to make a joke about it was too good to pass up.
