    Hi,

    I can't seem to save my layout with the trackmap plugin. When I go to 'save track map' it says: 'NOT OK'. Everytime I enter a race weekend my layout is lost and the standard layout is back.
    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Thx!

    You first no to select add track or so, drive on complete lap until the text disappears and then go to save track map.

    It doesn't work. I really like the plugin, but I always need to rearrange everything :/.

    Is it possible that the game/plugin has no write access to the game/plugin folder? Try to start rF2 as admin and check if there still is no saved track map.

    Are you saying that the different information windows don't save their position or you can't create a map of the track?

    To save the layout of the information windows you do the changes you want and then in the options select Layout to All Sessions and press Enter. It should save the layout for all the sessions.

    If you want different layouts in Practice, Warmup or Race to automatically load it can be done to. You need to go to the options and where it says Unique Layout select No. Then do the changes you want and select Layout to xx Session corresponding to the session you want that layout.

    As for the map i use the method outside the game extracting the AIW and GDB files as it says in the manual.

    No, I don't want to create a map of the track. The information windows don't save their position. Sorry, wasn't clear about that. I have tried it like that but it doesn't work. I'll try again.

    Then you need to save layout to session or how it is called and not save track map.

    I think you should uncheck "read -only" option to the rF2 installation folder....try it

    Done that, doesn't help. Everytime I quit the game and start it again I have lost my layout of all the information windows. This is frustrating :p.

    Can you edit the trackmapconf.txt manually?
    Does it show the new layout that way?

    I guess you run windows 10? I am having the same problem it refuses to save my changes.
