    Hi :welcome:

    Some more details would help. Why can't you join, do you get an error message?

    Auto clutch is pretty common, and should be allowed almost everywhere. Not sure about auto gearbox though.

    which lobby should i use?
    as the one im in has 5sessions, but all professional. in professional mode all auto clutch is disabled.
    some sessions, like the one from racedepartment needs a password.
    where do i obtain that??

    Whichever one you want. I only race here, so I use the Simbin lobby that RD currently uses.

    Auto clutch should be allowed in professional mode as well. I've always used it anyway.

    For passwords go to the sites of the servers you want to join.
    For RD, you need to apply for a licence, and then you'll get access to the password. http://www.racedepartment.com/application-rules/
    I think the site is in the process of being migrated or something, so applications are currently closed.

    You need to create (or edit, if it exists) a file in your GTL folder.
    The file name is LOCAL_IP_LOBBY.TXT
    Inside is just the url to the lobby you want to use. Simbin lobby, the one you're using now if you see the RD server, is gtlsrv.race-game.com
    The other lobby I used is altbierdude: gtl-lobby.bierbuden.de

    ive edited the lobby.txt file.

    but then i get general error.

    so im pretty depressed now. i cant race in your races, as i dont have a password, and i cant apply for licence either.
    and i cant connect to any other lobbys with some active users so i can race.
    i need auto gearbox and auto clutch, as its realy not fun learning manual with no clutch and no traction controle

    It's a million-to-1 chance, but it just might work Premium

    UPDATE:

    i have resolved the issue with some 4 hour browsing. thanx

    racing still limited, as i havent downloaded all addons yet.
    and it tells me "track not installed"
    the track is available on single player mode, so dont understand.
    and the track pack is huge to download.
    any suggestions?

    where is a calender for normal, clean version races

    If you want, you can use this to unlock all cars: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/gtl-miscellaneous-24/gtl-all-cars-unlock-691/
    You'll have to create a new driver profile after you install it.

    It's a GTL thing. If the server is using a track you don't have, it will show a default track.

    I don't have any experience with altbierbude, other than there is some sort of an update manager or something. I remember someone saying that they were downloading a lot of GB, I guess all available cars and tracks.

    Events here provide the link to the track and/or car used, so it's lightweight and straightforward.

    I only race here, Tuesdays and Thursdays, so can't recommend anything beyond that.

    You need to register your username and password (and possibly online key) before you will be able to connect to any lobby
