    I have been having problems with GTR2 online races since a long time, when I’m near other car he just starts to shake from side to side, at first I think the problem was my old PC, but now with a new one the problem keeps going.

    I’m running a PC with,
    Intel Core I7 920 2.66
    4 GB Memory
    Asus 5850 1Gb
    Windows 7 64 bits

    Offline I can race with full graphics with no problem, but for the online I change it to medium but this kind of freeze problem comes always I’m near other car, yesterday at Fuji someone else was with this kind of trouble, any ideas why?

    I find some answers to this question and seems like the GTR 2 config doesn't read the system well on anything beyond windows XP, so I change my config.ini file in the GTR 2 folder with this settings:

    CPURATING=5
    SYSTEMRAM=4096
    VIDEORAM=1024
    OBJDETAIL=3
    TEXDETAIL=3
    RUNBENCHMARKS=0
    FSAA=0
    VSYNC=0
    SHADERLEVEL=3

    Still not perfect, when I’m near to other car he still flickers a bit, but is better now.

    Get rid of the Shadows...

    This is one of the biggest eaters of frame rates. Also running lower graphics online will give you a better ping... Absurd I know but it does work! I learnt this little trick playing the Battlefield series and I do it in all multiplayer games to get a smoother experience while playing.

    In VIDEORAM you have to type your GPU RAM in MB x 1.5, that is to say 1536. Also you can change OJBDETAIL and TEXDETAIL to 5, and FSAA to 36.

    I have a now old Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 (2.66), 6 GB RAM and a nvidia GTX 260 and I can race online with the setting above.

    Maybe it also depends on your internet connection.

    Regards.

    Thanks for the tips, Ian and Bakke.

    About the internet connection, I think it should be enough:

    well i had this problem to. I solve this to use a cable connection, instead of the WiFi connection from the router.
    The internet (play)connection is now more stable.

    If you have a router, try to play without this one. ANd see what's happening. Find out if youre firewall is expecting youre (open) ports for this game.

    I didn't waht to make a new topic, but where has the racedepartment server gone??
    couldn't find it...
    quite good to play in, even alone, because some crashers wont get ingame to ruin a lap.
