I need help

Discussion in 'Racer Problems & Fixes' started by John Smith, Jun 4, 2012.

  1. I have been playing racer for several months now. I own an older laptop so I have only been able to run version 6.5.5. I can't run the new ones, even with non-cg. The problem I would like fixed is that the old racer is hitting a problem. Every time I try to start a race with any settings, it flashes to a loading screen with the message, "Connecting to 127.0.0.1. port 25000." After displaying this for several minutes, it goes back to the main menu. How do I fix this? I have already tried re-downloading.
     
  2. Does it do it with any car and track or just specific one(s)?
    Oh, I forgot, also check the QLOG.txt file in Racer's main directory.
     
  3. Using the site search on racer.nl with a term like "port 25000", you can find the answer to this common question.
     
  4. Here is the QLOG entries that I believe to be relevant. There are others but they specifically mention certain cars and not others.
    Code:

    Mon Jun 04 01:42:02 (ERR ): [racer/4668] Can't connect to server '127.0.0.1'
    I can't figure out what is blocking the connection. I use windows firewall and have since added an exception for racer. Could one of my antivirus programs be stopping this?
    Thank you Ian and cosmo for helping. It does happen with all cars and tracks but I think that this is irrelevant now that we have diagnosed the problem.
     
  5. What kind of network card do you have?

    Don't have a bigfoot NIC by any chance do you?
     
  6. here seems to be the problem.
    .............
    4668] QNClient:Connect(); failed to create enet peer; out of connections
    Mon Jun 04 01:42:02 (ERR ): [racer/4668] Can't connect to server '127.0.0.1'
    .............
    I'm assuming it's something to do with your "enet peer"

    some times a car won't load and it will mention that at the end of the Qlog file
    ...can't load car, must be version 090...
    or some thing like that

    server 127.0.0.1 is your computer so there's no problem there
    QNClient:connect .... seems to be something to do with the failure your getting

    I don't think it would be your virus checker
    of course your should only be running one (1) virus checker on one (1) computer or the second one will think the first one is a virus or visa versa

    looking at the Qlog you showed us it say your "out of connections"
    bloody computer always lead us up a merry path.
    I'd follow up with "Camsinny's suggestion first and work out if your card is giving you bogus information, that happens with legacy hardware and software it has not got enough instructions to keep up with new code or hardware it's never heard of.

    would be good to know more about the system your running so that others can help you further and maybe tell you to go and spend more :rolleyes: money .. so sad
