    Hello, well tried to just to my first race and it just didnt happen Im sure i put the skins and the skin fix in the right folder. I put them in here : C:\Program Files\SimFactory\ARCA Sim Racing\GameData\Vehicles\ARCA\RaceDepartment

    But all it would do is say I had a car or track mismatch. redownloaded the skin pack still nothing. I joined another non RD public server and everything was fine. Have no idea what the problem is at all.

    Please help me :(

    Dont give up Jai. it really does sound like you got a bad connection to the d/l server to me, though I dont know your normal connection speed. I get about 11 meg, and it took about 3 hours to get.

    Delete/rename the ARCA folder and try again.

    Jai, its worth contacting The Sim Factory on here (RD) just PM them. They have been very helpful to those members that have required help from time to time. Seems strange that you have just had a fresh install and it doesn't work.

    Can you get into public servers?

    Hey chaps, yeah your right, i loved the game when i first got it.
    I have a 0.30mps - 0.48mps tops connection, so Tim im guessing your on the money as i left the computer on all night grabbing the files, shame there isnt a 1 patch solution that i could grab at work and install at home!
    I have a 100mb link at work!!!!!

    Steven, i will try the public now bud, same track ect. But yes, best to pm the main man!

    Thanks chaps. Its just so frustrating!!

    Definitely. If your connection is .48MB down then I doubt you'll ever get the game to download. I would contact TSF and see if you could get a disc. Otherwise, you need to upgrade your internet package :)
