    Hmm thats strange, i thought that you maybe started a dedicated server and put the tracks in RACE07DS folder instead of RACE07..

    Did you try removing the .blob files and restarting your Steam?

    • Code:
      [LIST]
      [*]Go to X:\Steam (X=your drive where steam is located)
      [*]Remove both AppUpdateStats.blob and ClientRegistry.blob
      [*]Close Steam -> Right click on the traybar right bottom of your screen and choose Exit
      [*]Boot Steam again
      [*]Fill in account name and password (make sure you have both when you do this!)
      [*]Steam will now check to see if you game needs updating certain parts
      [/LIST]

    What about getting all the tracks moving them somewhere. Then a reinstall of GTRE? Then trying putting them back in there folders?

    That a misconception by a lot of people, you never have to reinstall the entire game :) Steam will update where necessary if you remove the correct folder

    Ah ok that explains it :),

    just before i went to do what u told me to do Bram i thought i'd try loading gtr back up again and there's the add on tracks all back again. Really strange and i didn't do anything else like move the location folder anywhere again. Why is this?? Now i just have to check if game still lagging.
