    Hi all, not often I need this kind of help but I'm sure someone can answer.

    It's something I've been scratching my head on for ages. Bascially I can't get the map plugin to run at all. I follow all the installation instructions, but I can't get it to disply in rFactor at all. I tried again recently and all I got was a Direct X error when I tried to run rFactor

    Cheers guys :)

    Yes I believe it was, although I don't think this file was related to any other plugins.

    Alex seems to be having this issues lately too.

    He tried it as part of testing something for me, but encountered DLL problems.

    Very Odd.

    I occasionall got d3_d940.dll errors - solved by getting that dll and sticking it in the rF directory.

    Ok, but even when I don't get that error, the plugin simply does not display! Hardware plugins enabled in game, I can't think what else I may be doing wrong
