    Really? Genuinely surprised at that. I think the interface is pretty clean and nicely laid out. Some of the settings screens could do with a polish perhaps, but on the whole I think it';s one of the better UIs out there - what don't you like about it?

    Dunno. It just feels far too simplistic for me - just boxes with pictures. No shadows, no focus effects, loses default selection whenever you change screens, fonts in some screens aren't padded sufficiently. Not sure, maybe it's just me. I build web applications, which is maybe I'm paying more attention to it than other people. Overall I'd like it to feel more "3D". As it stands it's something I could make in Paint without much effort.
  3. I think 3D menus are not the best way to go. I know them from Forza 7 and they are a nightmare performancewise.
    For me, more important is a fast accessibility. And for what I've heard, for some people even the current state of the menus is too "fancy" for them.

    PC sims traditionally have bland, substandard and horrible looking menus compared to other genres.

    Compared to other PC sims, ACCs menus are very nice. But not quite as good as games like Project Cars 2.

    The developers of PC sims generally tend to force you to use a mouse in order to navigate their menus and they make their menu systems an afterthought to an extreme level of afterthought.

    I remember 10 years back GTR Evolution had a menu system so poorly designed and depressing to look at, and yet it was one of the best menus compared to other PC sims. However, it was 10 years out of date compared to other genres of games such as first person shooters or FIFA.

    In Assetto Corsa, there was such a large disconnect between the interface system and the gameplay that you couldn't even pause the game with the pause button on your wheel.

    If you had an emergency to attend to whilst playing and you needed to instantly pause the game mid race, you would have to take your hand away from the wheel and reach for the mouse. By that time, your car has advanced further along the track than desired.

    Although I want PC driving sim developers to make the driving physics the number one priority, I wouldn't want the design of their user interface to be too much of an afterthought.

    Great finish to the Bathurst 12 hour today. I suppose ACC would need licencing from Liquid Moly to put the great race track in ACC.

    The Bathurst race represents the opening round of the 2019 Intercontinental GT Challenge campaign, which will also take in the Total 24 Hours of Spa as part of its five-round schedule.

    The competition is set to be fierce, with the world’s leading GT manufacturers calling on their top driving talent to contest the championship. With multiple Blancpain GT Series champions and Total 24 Hours of Spa winners among the field, the standard promises to be extremely high.

    Menus from concoles are mostly terrible too. Take a look at latest f1 game or Forza Horizon. Maybe those menus works fine on xbox/ps4 but on pc i feel i am loosing 5-10 mins every time i need to pass through em.

    Guys can someone help, pls? Yesterday I played ACC and all was fine (VR Oculus). This morning went to Single player and keyboard doesn't work. Center View (Lft CTRL + Space) doesn't center the view, F2 doesn't work either,
    even when I want to leave the race (pressing ESC) nothing happens. Essentially, looks like ACC doesn't see keyboard at all. If I enter game in regular screen mode all is fine.
    Trying to cure the problem I was going through different menus (such non-intuitive mess, I don't even want to go there) that now my G25 settings are all reset. What a wonderfull way to spend Sunday....

    I am not sure why the hate for the UI.
    I play using a playseat, VR and wheel etc, and its a pain trying to use a mouse and keyboard for me.
    With the UI the way it is I have buttons on my wheel for left/right/up/down/forward/backwards and my paddles for accept or cancel and it is easy to see and navigates and works great.
    I don't really care what it looks like as I only use this as a way of getting into a race. Its the game play that counts to me.

    To use my keyboard I have to move it over onto t chair as I do my mouse, which is a pain. I also have to remove my VR headset so I can see what I am doing.
    The way it is now, I can fire up the game and leave the headset on and remain seated until I want to come back out again.

    Ok Pcars 2 may look better, but as I said, its only used to get into a game, so who cares about the wrapping, its whats inside that counts.

  14. Yup once I got used to it, I find ACC's UI to work very well with my wheel/VR setup, no more constant taking off VR and awkwardly leaning forward over my wheel to reach the mouse.

    The worst thing for me right now is despite ingame being smooth, the main menu stutters a lot in VR which is a little nauseating, pretty minor though, gameplay is the important part.
  15. Can someboby please give me an information what these codes are about?:
    ACC Licensed
    D1 D2 D3 JP RP 3P
