Change is on the horizon with rRactor 2 the most likely sim that we will be moving to but I'll save that for a topic in another forum.

Either start a new topic or post anything that is on your mind here.

The rFactor 2 discussion got me thinking about a new computer. My current box is... *checks date* ...holy crap, ten years old! I did not realize it was that old. My wife has had multiple new Macs in the time I've had this one PC. Unfortunately, unless I get a miracle or catastrophe soon, there will be no new PC for me in the foreseeable future. I would not blame y'all for moving to a modern sim. I just will not be able to join you for a while yet. Please do not let that influence the decision to switch. I'll just be a bit late to the party. :lol:

Pardon my ignorance here but maybe your wife can give up an old Mac which I believe can run rFactor2.

Tom - our visit last night gave us teh boot selecting the Apex mod however the Edurance mod was no problem. When I first went to join, got teh package not available so lucky Dave wass able to get on and see what changes you made. So I as well as Kevin headed off to teh workshop and all is well.

Really, really starting to like what I'm driving there. Looking very forward to some league racing in this modern sim! Now if I can just stop driving an Aston like a Historic. Jesus I was a mess.

Thanks, Pat, still learning the ropes, glad it worked out.

I've started a thread/topic for the current server settings.

rFactor 2 Matchmaker first glance is a step backwards with no mod information but IMO that's inevitable as ANY car can be enabled on a server, can't list a dozen or more cars.

When we settle down to a championship then I can manually type as the game name (?) "Enduracers" or "Howsten Dissenter" or our designation for whatever mod package that we're using.

Yeah, thanks again Tom like I said in the other topic. Enjoying it, especially trying to knock off 4 sec against Dave. What a learning curve. No more ram rodding :D

So I have it installed and running. I have Paul R. loaded but when I try to join the server I get "Package not Available". What else do I need?

Nevermind! I see the thread now

That almost certainly means that you don't have all of the cars.

I post what is on the server here: viewtopic.php?f=97&t=3742

Follow the links to subscribe to each of them.

Enduracers is 4 GB+ so that's going to take a long time.

I intend to change the track to Road America 2016 this afternoon/evening so subscribe to that, too.

That seems too fast for all those to install. I let my PC run overnight for Enduracers.

Restart rF2?

It said it did. Took a little while. I checked that I am subscribed to all of them and restarted a couple of times.

EDIT: I'M IN! I unsubscribed and re-subscribed and it works now

Hey guys, I found a nice step-by-step tutorial on how to use Driver Swap in rF2.

So last Sunday night 8/11 after the normal RF1 races 5 of us moved over to the RF2 server and ran around Mid Ohio with the 70's Stock cars. These cars will defiantly give you that historic driving feel. Then it happened, the first EFNET RF2 race. Ok was only two laps and took us a bit to be able to start and get through the two laps without restarting due to crashing. But for the record Rich won the race.

I had no graphics issues with 5 cars on track, everything ran smooth. I think we are going to try to keep doing this after the races on Sunday, so jump in if you want to test RF2 with your PC.

goddamnit! i keep missing the action. I dont have rFactor 1 anymore. I bought it before my son was born, and he will be 14 in a few months. :shock: Time to move on.

Next time you have test races, or Sunday night scrims in rF2 please text me, and I'll try to join.

4 8 0 - 8 ONE 9 - 4 3 ONE 8 [Scottsdale, AZ] ...(trying to avoid bots collecting my phone #)

... and for the record, we had the first ESR rF2 race back when it was first released years ago. it was at lime rock park with about 5 drivers with an open wheel car. :mrgreen:

Just look for the rF2 server around 19:45 PDT on Sundays, we'll be there reliably after the Simca races.

I turn the rF2 dedicated server off iwhen we are racing on the rF1 server.

Uh, it took a month. :roll: I had a good experience with Velocity Micro in the past. That is why I ordered from them again. I am not impressed with their performance this time.

I did some laps with an Xbox controller just to test it. It was nearly undriveable with the controller, but it looked sweet. I got some graphical glitches in the menu, of all things. I look forward to trying it with the wheel.

I'm looking forward to this! Would it be possible to get a weekly email reminder before a race or car selection dates?

Be sure to have the latest gfx driver installed and do a restart, had a similar situation happen and that seemed to clear it up.

The efnet SIM racing page on facebook will be a good tool to announce our races, we can also share that with other SIM racing groups to possibly attract other drivers.

Keep updates here, as well, however. Some of us aren't on FB. Can you imagine that.

The forum will always the place to check for info.

By the way that I operate, announcing on social media makes little sense when this website never moves and is easier to get to with a simple bookmark and less cluttered with worthless posts but I am trying need to keep up with the kidz I guess.
