    Nice track!! that is your lap time?
  4. Sorry, but I'm not sure what to do with the 8.14 kb file that I download from the links. It seems to be the same file from both links. When placed in My Documents\rFactor2\Packages\, rFactor install sees it but won't install it. Pardon my ignorance. I'm still trying to figure out more about rFactor2.

    The track file is not the correct download. It's the track from the modding section. Link updated.

    I corrected the download link for the track. Made a mistake there, sorry.

    Download both of the links. 1 of 8Kb, and the track file (65mb). First install the track (Untick the Show Mods Only option in the OPTION menu to see it), and when you have installed the track, the small mod can be installed.

    Then join the server ;)
  8. Thanks, Marco. Do we need to download and install the track if it's already installed from the last attempt?

    Edit: I'm not having any luck getting this working this time. In my packages folder I have:
    RD Classic @ Snetterton.rfmod

    Mod manager says I can't install the last item. Within game I can choose RDClub mod and race F2s at Snetterton 300. I've got the previous download of Snett and the current one. Any help would be appreciated. TIA

    After a few laps, 2:23's :eek: so slow!

    Jim if you can't get it running; delete track and mod from your Packages folder, unzip the track to Packages and run the launcher to install it. Then[!] download the mod file and put it in Packages.
  10. Thanks, Dennis. However, when I right click Snetterton300 and choose "Uninstall" I get a message box that says:
    "Snetterton300 1.1 is currently in use by 1 mods and cannot be deleted. Use Properties/Advanced Info to see which mods use this component." I then right click Snetterton300 and choose Properties and click the button for Advanced Info. This reveals a box with no text in it, where I presume it should be telling me what mods are currently using it.

    You probably have the MOD RD Club Racing installed. (look at the file location displayed in the mod manager, which should en with rdclub.rfmod.
    Uninstall that one first

    Then go to the track, and uninstall Snetterton 1.1
    Delete the file from the package folder
    Download (or unpack if you alreday downlaoded it) the 0.71 version (the offline version which is on the forum)
    Install that one

    Now the RD Classic @ Snetterton should be able to install.

    Check this post out. Ít's told in detail there, since I expect this to happen during the league as well ;)
  12. hi guys,
    I will probably be interested on trying this race, its all depends on the turn-up. Ill be around anyway incase:)

    Just noticed the server dropped out of the matchmaker from ISI. I restarted it, so it's back up again.

    There are no official signups yet, but I know some already have tried the mod, and had some practice. Would like to hear if all went well, installing wise, but also server stability and stuff.

    We went to a lot of trouble finding out how this new system actually works. I believe we have it covered now, after litteraly hours and hours of trying and perfecting. I hope the signups will soon start coming again. It's such a shame not to use this fantastic game :)

    I thought I installed the track and mod correctly but evidently not. I don't think I ever had the 1.1 track. The 0.71 track is listed and the mod can only be uninstalled so it should be a done deal but not.

    What is the exact problem? It does not work when joining?

    OK, I just went thru the "remove Snetterton 1.1 routine. I didn't find any of the files mentioned but finished the process. Looking for the RD event online, not present!
  18. Thanks for the detailed instructions, Marco. I can now race the F3s at Snetterton300 offline. I also went to look for the server online and only saw the RD server for the Megane event.

    Can anyone check if it is back up again? I will keep an eye out on the server today. It was again in status Could not connect to matchmaker. Not something we can do anything about at this moment. The matchmaker service is an ISI thing. I have been online, and when I reset the server, it connects to the system again.

    Will keep an eye out to make sure it stays available. Really strange. Will look at ISI forum later today to see if others have this as well.
  20. It is back up, but I cant join, have tried all your suggestions, still not able to join, says mod not installed.......?
