    To download rf2 plug in etc please. I know everybody just says yeah just drop it into your rf2 root folder blah de blah well guess what??? It doesn't work!! for instance, maptrack plug in, I've spent an hour trying to sort that. Have you seen how many different files are in the download?? I appreciate the downloads and thank you all for doing them but please make it simpler for Windows 8 people because when I try and drop anything into the rf2 root folder, IT DOES NOT WORK!!!! and yes I'm shouting because I'm frustrated!!! tracks and cars are piss easy but all the other stuff is hard. Cheers, Happy New year :)

    First of all if you have any files from a previous trackmap installation delete them.

    Download the latest version from racedepartment. It is 0.96.

    Then inside the rar file there are 3 folders.

    Extract them to the main rfactor2 folder. Overwrite if necessary.

    It should work when you start the game.

    IT should but it definitely doesn't and I haven't had any trackmap installed before but I've tried to the main folder, I've tried them to bin 32, I've tried installing them all seperately, I've tried well ....everything nothing works. Is it that whoever uploads these instructions, it is meant for windows 7? a folder a folder right?

    Does it give any error or just doesn't show up in the screen?

    If you use the 64bit version of rfactor2 you need to have in the rfactor2/Bin64 a d3d9.dll file.
    In rfactor2/Bin64/Plugins a TrackMapPlugin_64.dll file.
    In rfactor2/Plugins a Trackmap folder.

    If everything is in the right place and still doesn't work go to the rFactor2\Plugins\TrackMap\Redistributable and Install vcredist_x86.exe and vcredist_x64.exe

    If it still doesn't work try and run the game with administrator privileges.

    I just don't know why it won't do it but I've lost enough time with it now and thanks anyway.

    So after @Simon Christmann helped me last night, will I have to re-install the trackmap with the new build? I think I know what to do but would be better If I didn't have to go through it all again.

    It depends. If you update your install no. If you do a parallel install yes.

    I'll go with the update install then :)Also think I'll delete the other installs I have as I think there was a problem especially after I messed it up last night.
