    Yes, well thank you for thinking about us poor poor users with 3 – that's three – huge flat screens mounted to our rig. :D

    I was trying to figure out what exactly was misinterpreted...
    I think @geanmimi mistook "I, personally, are very happy with UE4 on my single screen setup" as @Felge Schneider questioning the need for triple screen support at all.

    Yeah I hardly have the space for three screens between all those stacks of money and gold bars :D

    To be honest I would have been a triple screen user if I had space for them. But then VR arrived and this was perfect for me.

    But I also hope triple screen is properly supported by ACC in the future of course!

    Still early for me to say how this all turns out, but so far i'm not a huge fan.

    Things that bother me with UE4:
    -Bluriness of dash and environment until you get really close (TAA)
    -tree/shadow popping as you approach
    -lack of triple screen support
    -heavy resource requirements
    -VR is too blurry and not crisp

    Compared to some of the other engines, it does have a lot of eye candy but the lack of sharpness really bothers me. I much rather get the predrawn environments like we saw in AC and iRacing then what I am seeing with this engine at the moment.

    My hope, if ACC sticks with the UE4 engine, and other simracing titles migrate to it, is that Epic works with the simracing title developers and gives the engine a simracing twist.
    Right now I’m enjoying what ACC brings that is superior to other titles, and I’m looking forward to a nice long stream of small but regular updates, hopefully reducing some of the niggles in the current implementation (for me that’s shadows appearing out of nowhere...)

    I don't see how they could change now. It's not like UE is a mod that can be turned on or off, I'd assume it's a fundamental part of the game at this stage. Changing would be the equivalent of trying to remove the first 3 rows of bricks from a house that's completed and has been lived in for 2 years.

    This is the problem with being innovative, you don't know for sure what the finished article will look like until it's actually done. But it does mean Kunos is ahead of the game.

    Yeah, you’re right. Should have written ‘Kunos’

    I think and I hope that a specification was established before launching the project, the problems with the graphics engine were known, unless the people of Epic Games have made a promise that they have trouble in solve. Unless virtual reality has been the only solution, but only the people of Kunos know it. Too bad because this engine is beautiful.

    It couldn't be known because it hadn't been tried yet. It's never good practice to assume that plans on paper will turn out as expected once they're introduced to the real world. It doesn't matter how much effort you put into preparation once you start forcing something to do things it's never done before there are going to be unforeseen issues.

    There's a good saying that forging a plan removes the possible outcomes by exactly one :D

    Sounds like a version of murphy's law.
  16. Look on the bright side Kunos Devs, imagine how the big the thread would have been if you had used the AC1 engine instead of UE4.:oops::D

    We fail to appreciate the effort that went into getting VR working so early on. F1 2019, as a AAA release, lacks VR and there is no plan to add afaik.

    Considering that Codies has a significantly bigger team to get it done, having VR in ACC is a testament to the ethos of Kunos.

  19. I play in VR and it's fine, the project has its bugs and isn't properly finished but for a driving experience, its sublime and i cannot stop driving in it. A testament to a masterpiece of sim racing. Keep going Kunos you will get there. And a question to the devs , will Nvidia Ansel be implemented when graphical issues have been addressed?

    high risks, high rewards, and i think if we don't have compagny like KUNOS sim racing would be stuck in the past.
    Now, we just need EPIC GAMES to listen to KUNOS and the simracers.
