    Does anyone know how to get xfire to work with steam version of race 07 and gtr evo?

    It doesn't unfortunatly. It only keeps track of how long you play it.

    It's possible.

    You have to firstly make sure hidden files are shown, then go:

    C:\ProgramData\Xfire

    Then open xfire_games.ini

    Next step is to find Race07. Which should looks like this:

    [5233]
    LongName=RACE 07
    ShortName=race07
    LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\InstallPath
    LauncherExe=steam.exe
    DetectExe=SteamApps\*\race 07\Race_Steam.exe
    InstallHint=steamapps\*\race 07\mss32.dll
    Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% -applaunch 8600
    _LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS%
    _LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
    RunElevated=1


    And make the race07 section look like this instead:

    [5233]
    LongName=RACE 07
    ShortName=race07
    LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\InstallPath
    LauncherExe=steam.exe
    DetectExe=SteamApps\*\race 07\Race_Steam.exe
    InstallHint=steamapps\*\race 07\mss32.dll
    Launch=
    _LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% -applaunch 8600
    _LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS%
    _LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
    RunElevated=1
    InGameRenderer=D3D9
    InGameFlags=USE_PRESENT|ENABLE_MOUSE|USE_DINPUT_MOUSE


    This works, however, at every xfire program/game update this fix will have to be re-done.

    Its been mentioned on there a lot of times but they seem to think it isn't worth bothering, even though it works completely fine if you do it yourself.
