– The Alt+Tab functionality of the Sim has been adjusted due to several issues that could occur, such as crashing during exiting or notifications causing the screen to go completely black. The new changes work as follows:
– – The Sim may be toggled between Full-Screen Mode and Windowed Mode by pressing Alt+Enter.
– – When running in Full-Screen Mode, Alt+Tab toggles the Sim into Windowed Mode.
– – When running in Windowed Mode, Alt+Tab switches the active app focus as normal.
– – The Sim will not automatically toggle back into Full-Screen Mode when regaining active app focus. Be sure to use Alt+Enter to toggle back into Full-Screen Mode from Windowed Mode.
– – The Sim may automatically switch from Full-Screen Mode to Windowed Mode for several reasons including certain program notifications, or DXGI detecting another window suddenly overlapping the Sim window. A registry setting, “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\DXGI\DisableFullscreenWatchdog”, may modify some of this DXGI behavior. Experiment at your own risk!
– – If you experience problems with Full-Screen Mode, a highly recommended alternative is to use Windowed Mode with a full-screen sized borderless window. This may be configured during the auto-configuration or using the Graphics Options screen inside the Sim.

PopcornFX

– We have worked with the folks at PopcornFX and fixed an issue where the Sim could freeze when the Particle Detail setting is at the “Medium” or “High” value. With this fix, please feel free to adjust the Particle Detail setting as you wish. If you increase the Particle Detail setting and start to experience application freezes, please try reducing it back to the “Low” value and contact Customer Support for advice.

Dallara DW12

Formula Renault 2.0

– Fixed a bug so that brake pressure bias value is now displayed in the Garage and F8 Black Box instead of the brake bar bias value. This fix has no effect on existing car setups, it only corrects the displayed value for brake bias.
