Is there any update or WIP for the driver names to be more visible? maybe get a black or red outline on the driver names perhaps, as you can see 99% of the time is hard to see the names 1% only for night time races which is ok. :)

This, plus keeping the size of the font constant over the whole distance, in a size which is easy to read, also would help lots.

AC style is the best. Constant sized font with black borders, visibility based on distance, and arrow colored based on latency. Knowing this won't be fixed in PCars, the best we can do for now is to look at the bottom left for the name.

hmmm,
in the left bottom corner normaly it can be seen which driver is in front or behind. I personaly have drivernames disabled (its to arcadish for me, sorry :o ).
If someone like more visibility then it should be implemented configurable like:
- fontsize
- color
- transparency
- ON/OFF

Can agree on that. Best solution would be a relative box where u can see the 3-4 people behind and in front of you. Although we do not have sth like that in pcars1, at least make the names at the top more visible. I mean white font on the sky, obviously you can not see the names :D Who came up with this idea? :D

agreed this is a needed improvement. as the guys already said, put a simple black border around the font that will give enough contrast for it to be readable in most situations.

In the mean time I found TonyR's tool to be fantastic - not only do you get to see who is in front, but also who is behind and the timing too.

Second screen or overlay in window mode.

You will need to spend 10 mins reading up and carefully installing as explained but once its up and running its a peach.

Yes, bottom left corner is the only option when you race people constantly without overlapping traffic, but i like to keep the UI as clean as i can and dont want to see anything that will make loose focus on as i am very easy to distract:) so for some of us will be really helpful.

Yes, i have seen it, but honestly this isnt something people might,should and must do, as a product owner and still buyer of content i believe at least drivers names and a relative box working well is something really essential for the UI to be working well since beta.

Tony's and many other app developers have done and amazing job of course.

Yes, i would say most of the times i got this vision on driver names, but i hope something can be done, i know pcars 2 might start doing pcars 1 a little to the dark side on fix stuff but i think there are some fixes that can be done instead of using third party apps, not that is wrong of course. :)
