    I've tried installing this track several times and it always hangs on loading.

    Curious thing is there are 4 subfolders in this mod with each track twice - one with -AC added on to the folder name. Only the non AC folders show up in the game. Should the -AC subfolders be deleted?

    Should all the files from this MOD be in the Donnington folder? Or should the ones not in the subfolders be in the Location folder?

    Hi Lou.

    All the Donington layouts should be contained within a folder named Donington and this folder should be inside a folder named BBSE.

    Just curious, are you taking all the files out of the BBSE folder then installing into the Locations folder? because if you do that the track will not load.

    Just drop the BBSE folder containing all the track files into your Locations folder and everything should be ok.

    Ah! Thanks Steve and Hiroshi - thought the BBSE folder was unnecessary.

    So what kind of times are you guys running here? In the 1:40s?

    As a rule of thumb anything inside the Gamedata\Locations folder should be placed into where you have your tracks stored (even if it does look odd).;)

    As for lap times.... we don't like to talk about this in the forums as we have drivers of all skill levels racing with us and if they see someone is 5 or 6 seconds faster than their best effort then that could put them off joining the race and this would lead to smaller grids and perhaps an elitist one at that etc etc etc ..... but in a word, yes.:thumbsup:

    As someone who is far slower than that time, I understand completely. I'm a total noob to this type of racing and am just looking for a ball park number to practice towards.

    Thanks again.

    Don't worry Lou, you'll be in good company. It's a learning curve but well worth it. If you look out for other drivers on the server, you can join them to get an idea. They'll help with setups, suggested gears, braking points and the like if you ask. It will also ensure that everything is working at your end so that you don't find out last minute on the night that you have a
    mismatch/problem.

    Hope to see you on track soon. I'll post here before I go on the server later today. Good luck for Sunday if you decide to sign up. I have a feeling you'll be just fine.

    Thanks for the warm welcome Denis. I've been able to get on the server.

    I'll keep an eye on you guys but I'm GMT-7 so it's not easy - also restricts me to weekend racing.
