Online Setup's

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Tomek Popielinski, Mar 13, 2012.

  1. Hello everyone.
    I have a question - does the "online setups" is avalible for You Guys? because I have issue to get them in the last few days. There is only a "authenticating" and "connecting" message and nothing else.

    Sometimes it works, sometimes doesn't. When I put Steam to offline mode, it never works. Guys here claim that it works, but I haven't had that luck so far. When I put Steam into online mode, it works suddenly.

    It's crazy.
     
  3. If no one has put up a setup for THAT car at THAT circuit the game keeps refreshing, because it can't find anything.

    That' s my experience.

    This is very true and certainly happens at mod tracks with obscure cars as well as others. Many times in club racing a driver has acknowledged posting a setup and others cannot see it. It really does happen, the online garage just disappears, coffee break maybe?
     
  5. I made a similar thread over the the race room forums. A fix that worked for me (only if you are stuck on connecting or authenticating) is:
    • Delete everything in your steam folder (assuming you purchased with steam) apart from steam.exe and the steamapps folder
    • Then launch steam.exe and it will reinstall steam
    • login to steam again
    • Launch the game
    Something to do with the Steam authentication and doing it this way ensure steam in reinstalled, but you don't lose any of the games you've already got installed.

    Looks like there are a couple of "fixes", and sometimes we just have to wait for steam to give them back to us, lol!
     
  7. Thanks Guys, if this "fix" will help - I'll write here. Maybe it will be useful for the future.

  9. Agreed... Some people just seem to troll the online setups and vote up really bad setups

    Never understood why simbin used the "rfactor way" of sharing setups, much more handy as you can share a set with the click of a mouse button to an entire room.

    Mine was working online and offline with steam .... but after my upgrade a fully clean install Ive got nothing at all...
    i thought it was me ... :(

  12. Nope, before and after the last clean install (after the latest patch) and re-installing Steam i haven't got online setups.. I might try Steam install again, that's a quick procedure..
     
  13. My online setups are intermittent. They never appear to work in RD servers but they do some of the time in publics. Very odd that the server your connected to should have any effect on the availability of Online setups that are nothing to do with the server but thats what I have experienced. Like I said though sometimes they just dont work full stop...
     
  14. Can connect to MULTIPLAYER OK and compete On-Line fine but I cannot seem to see or download any OFF-LINE files to download other peoples set-ups. Just get AUTHORIZING, THEN CONNECTING and thats it never see any files. Happends on all tracks, all cars.
    Tried uninstalling then deleting the RACE 07 Directory. Deleting my RACE 07 profile in USERS. Then re-installing, but still the same.Tried switching off Firewall, Have the RACE 07 ports open on the router.

    I am not sure what is actually happening when you select OFF-LINE files. I presume that my PC is communicating with a server somewhere to try and download the set-ups.
    Tearing my hair out! Dont know what to try next. All help appreciated.
    Thanks Ed (Eddystone)
     
  15. Online setups fails in est 30% of people, i've been without them for over 6 months now.. We are waiting for a patch. Some have reported a succes with Steam clean install, you need to delete all BUT steamapps folder, then download latest Steam client and let it do the rest. I've done this but it didn't help but i'm gonna try again soon...
     
  16. Many thanks Kennett. Nice to know it's not just me :)
    I will try and re-load the STAM Client to see if that works for me. Will post response here.

  17. Threads merged.

  19. I found the answer!

    The link below details how to solve the problem. Thanks to all who helped.

    From Steam Suport:-

    Please exit Steam and go to the folder called C:\Program Files\Steam\ (this is the default location for a Steam installation - if you set a different installation directory, you will need to browse to it).

    Delete all of the files in this folder except:-

    The \Steamapps\ folder and Steam.exe (this file is listed as an application and features the black and white Steam logo)

    Restart your computer.

    Then, launch Steam.exe from within the Steam installation folder, and not
    from a pre-existing shortcut. (In my case Steam started automatically when did a re-boot)

    With Steam running, re-test the original issue.

    Note: This process will not affect your currently installed games.

    Additionally, please complete this process for your installed game(s):

    This is what i did to get my online sterups working again..

    Exit Steam

    Go to your steam folder directory, and delete everything except:

    Steam.exe (also known as the application under 'type)
    Steamapps (contains your game files)
    Userdata (This is optional, as it contains game saves for *some* games)

    fire up steam.. it didnt complete the first time.. but the second time i had to input my usermane and password...
    All works ok and can see online setups....
