    Dash switches flickering.

    As the title says, when driving the switches on the dash and steering wheel have a light/shadow/reflection error, where the switches seem to catch sun light that isn't there.

    Anyone else have this bug?

    Not sure what you are referring to but there is a limitation of the 3D engine which sometimes reflections from the ground can show on some cockpit pieces.

    Have you tried messing with the graphic settings to get a better result?
    Never noticed the problem myself.

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. The flickering is on the the switches, the parts that would normally illuminate when the headlights are on.
    For example: In the #63 gt3 Corvette all the circular dials on the centre console flicker white when the car is at a certain angle to the sun light.
    Most settings are on high.

    Been trying a few things and the only way I can sort this is to turn shadows off and that's just rubbish.

    Nope sorry, there won't be any more fixes for pCARS.

    I feel this 'time frame' especially in clear weather is the weak spot (graphics wise) in pCARS as the morning, late afternoon and night look much better. I use DS6X for day time and it looks great but not as good as morning, late afternoon or night (I use DS4X for late afternoon and night). Before when I did not have the 'horse power' to push DSX6 I would never race in the 12 noon time frame as I had the same issue(s) you describe.

    "Had the same issue(s)" does this mean you don't have them any more?

    Hang on, hang on. Can someone just confirm that this is a game wide issue when using the rift, and not just me! If it's just me having this there is no point in me moaning about it to the Devs'.

    If it is game wide; then I'm quite saddened that they don't want to fix it. For me this is the only issue I've had/got with the game and if I was the Dev' I'd like to think that it was all that it could be, a flagship of polished perfection....
