    As I will face this question many times, here is the quick solution to get TrackMap plugin running:

    http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/11908-Released-TrackMap-0-94beta-for-rFactor2/page12

    Also note that player data is now stored in player.JSON and Multiplayer.JSON. Following settings are mandatory as per rules, remember to change those:

    • Virtual Rearview In Cockpit: true
    • Net Connection Type: 6
    • Upstream Rated KBPS: 256
    • Downstream Rated KBPS: 256

    I just thought I would post up that when I had TrackMap installed for racing other cars other than FSR, that single-handedly led to connection issues which resulted in me D/C on the 1st lap in Canada........

    Well I checked the new files and there some things that bother me, like:

    • Virtual Rearview In Cockpit: 1 - mine sais TRUE, not 1. I guess it's the same.
    • Rearview: 1 or 2 - I don't have this
    • Downstream Rated KBPS: 256 - I don't have this either

    Right, it seems Rearview is now obsolete, forget that. Connection settings are in Multiplayer.JSON

    I would be very surprised if trackmap plugin caused your connection issues, considering probably something like 90% of racers here use this plugin.

    It could have been the way I installed it or something, but all I'm saying is I was experiencing connection issues consistently and regularly practicing for the GP, DSQ from the race, ripped the files out of my rfactor 2 install, and never had the issue again....
