Still trying to find an Imola ( San Marino ) track that works. I KNOW we've had preseason stuff on that track, but all the version I've tried keep crashing on load. We may go to plan B.

The Austin track or something I KNOW works, like a current track or Road America, which I think all of us know.


Oh, and the server will be set to X4 tire wear, very soon. That's what we ran last season, as I have been reminded. Raise your hand NOW, if I've not recalled this correctly !

I'm loading Austin on the server, as I type. I will set the tire wear to X4 as well. If there are no issues or complaints, we could run the first preseason race on Friday.

Track updated and tire wear set to X4.

Please let me know if you have any issues joining the server.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/rogerawonggame ... stinV2.zip

That is the direct download link for Austin.

This is the web forum where the download is linked:

http://www.trackjunkies.org/topic/2299- ... rack-file/

The folder needed is inside the AustinV2 folder and that needed folder is labelled Austin (without the AustinV2) once unzipped the AustinV2 folder can be opened and the Austin folder cut and pasted into the rFactor/GameData/Locations folder - at least that is what I had to do, and the server works fine for me.

Thanks.

I think that would be a good idea. It's all preseason and a new track. Would you guys like to run two 10 or 12 lap heats ?

I will be just a bit late for the first event. I have a doctors appointment I forgot about, but I should be able to make anything after 6:30 easily.

After a lot of "What about .... " ideas for the last pre-season track, I just took the easy route and loaded up Barcelona. The real F1 guys test there and it has high and low speed corners.

So, the next race will be THIS coming Friday, March 8th at 6 Pm Pacific. I think 40 laps is about right. I may edit that, before the race, it there is a need to.

I'm getting some MAS errors, on the newer version. Once I figure it out, I'll update the server.

OK, the server is running the modern Barcelona. I had to copy the folder from the server to make mine match. If anyone ELSE gets the error, let me know. I may post a link to a copy of the server folder anyway.

No problem here, modern Spanish GP track, last years rFactor install on the computer I have now, and a fresh download of last years track from 2012 listed on this forum.

Connected fine.

I suggest that after Friday's Pre-Season race that everyone check to make sure your tire files were created. You don't want to get DQ'd in the first race because you didn't check that.

Well that wasn't what I hoped for in a result last night, but at least got laps in. I was following Stuff around and making up time on him, then taking it easy a lap, but on that left turn that goes up hill, I looked away at my hud and lost the rear and slapped the wall. I barely made it to the pits and sat in there for 178 seconds, and then came out and ran about 30 qual laps with about a 90% car. It still steered a little wierd, but drivable. I hope we get more guys to show up for Austrailia.
