    I was able to find the CEF DevTools UI which allows me to see all sorts of debugging info about BeamNG's UI. And I found that GPU Raster (hardware acceleration) is turned off. I'm just wondering why UI hardware acceleration is turned off (and where did the setting go in the options UI?) since it's pretty beneficial as it enables GPU rendering (when off the CPU does all the rendering and is less efficient), and especially since BeamNG is a heavily CPU intensive game where every bit of CPU power is needed.

    Also I was trying to render some OpenGL/WebGL stuff in a UI app but it seems like WebGL is disabled (which looks to be the result of hardware acceleration turned off)

    Here's how to open CEF DevTools if you're curious (run Lua command in GE Lua console):
    Code:
    toggleCEFDevConsole()

    CTRL+U also toggles the CEF console, by the way.

    As for it being removed after they added it, I'm not really sure... Maybe it introduced more bugs than they originally expected?
    I do remember the options menu having a toggle for it at one point, though.
