    G'day and welcome Brian, it should prove to be the best 6 euros you ever spent. :)

    Look forward to seeing you join our Club Rallys and hopefully our RDRC as well.

    I'm keen to see what hardware you recommend for Rallying, I'm currently looking for more realism by adding a suitable upright handbrake rather than my G25 shifter (or maybe a better custom shifter?).

    Have fun sliding around the gravel, snow, and tarmac. :D

    Brian can never keep it straight anyway, so I'm guessing he's gonna be right at home in RBR :tongue:

    The Mulligatawny profile should be created by RSRBR2011.

    Not sure at what point you are crashing the game, so a bit hard to advise.
    Did you select Mulligatawny to run RSRBR?

    Make sure to read both of these tutorials to better understand how to play Off-line vs On-Line.

    http://www.racedepartment.com/richard-burns-rally/31470-rsrbr2011-installing-using-guidelines.html

    http://www.racedepartment.com/richa...ow-play-on-line-how-set-up-rally-on-line.html

    The user friendliness could be improved with RSRBR, but if you play around, things should become clearer. If you need more help, just holler and someone can get on TS with you and explain things better.

    BTW, try driving France, then you'll really see the importance of the handbrake.

    Welcome Brian!!

    Can you post pics of the sim setup you have, so that a dummy like me can know what a real sim looks like... Right now I am addicted to the sim thru my keyboard :p

    Thanks, n Happy New Year guys!!

    This sim is a classic isn't it. We've done our best to keep it to ourselves, but the aliens are invading us now. :D:D:D A year ago we were struggling to keep the Rally Club afloat. :eek:

    BTW, the Escort Mk2 is great, but you won't need the handbrake for it, it is pretty much useless with the RWD cars. You probably already know, but you steer it with the throttle. :cool:

    Great to see you've made and are already up and running :).
    Shush, I'm driving like that all the time, as I've mentioned in another thread before :p. The only button I am able to press at any time on my wheel really, driving with 540 degrees and one hand half the time :D.

    To clarify Warren's comment about handbrake usage in RWD - it's the RBR limitations (physics are reversed FWD ones), not the actual lack of use for a hanbrake in those properly powered cars ;).

    Thanks again for the great welcome guys! :)

    Much to learn, but found the Escort FAR EASIER to drive than the fwd stuff already! and the 4wd 6R4 is awesome but VERY hard to turn in as defualt. This is gonna be FUN me thinks :D

    Just gonna get a couple of quick stages in, then gonna look at what needs to be done on the .ini to get the most from the sim :)

    Its like xmas......hang on :) lol
