Discussion in 'Racer' started by Bram Hengeveld, Dec 25, 2009.
Sad to see RSC go, but glad that racedepartment allowed us to stay here!
Sort of irrelevant now.
How is RaceDepartment funded? Can we donate?
Is there any way of categorising the downloads for each subsection, maybe sub-sub-sections for cars for Sports, Stock, Offroad etc. or maybe a selector like the threads have for wip/released?
Betas can be released and updated (in the same 'thread') in the downloads section.
Unless the section becomes very big I would doubt we will be providing subsections for now unless Ruud specifically asks Bram to do so.
RD is supported via voluntary donations - haven't the foggiest where the link to donate has gone in the new forum :/
Eventually we will be back to the system where a new upload will create a thread in the relevant forum. Please be patient, we have just moved forum versions to vBulletin 4.0, are one of the first decent size forums to do so and it has been a BIG change. Everything will be back to the normal slick motion soon. Christmas, New Year and our admin's new job have got in the way
This sounds good, a place that Ruud can check for things that he needs to look at.
It was put up for a few hours, then taken down again.
RSC is history dudes!!
post yer screenies theard would be nice in this forum..and other like videos... like "OFF TOPICK" theard..
It´s all gone pete tong!
Edit: Will this be the place for us Racer fans now? I think this looks great!
I think we need a screenshots/videos subsection posthaste, these screenies threads multiply like rabbits. I dunno what the title should be exaclty, but something that indicates screenshot stills & videos.
As much as I love the screenshots, they take up a lot of space and bandwidth for our gracious forum hosts. If I post any screenshots, I will "make 'em count" so to speak, and upload the image files to Image Shack, rather than directly to the forum. It'd be good, for the benefit of Race Department, if others did the same.
I agree! We need a problems/fixes thread so much more so that Ruud can see the problems we run into that give us fits and then he can work on making Racer so much better for all of us in the Racer community.
Like the bug I ran into a couple of days ago, the surfaces /road noise in special.ini no longer works!
Oi? when did you do that? lol
Ages ago, I thought I posted it... hmm. I told someone anyway lol.
In the days of free hosting from the likes of Photobucket etc, I'm surprised RSC carried on allowing hosting of data + posts, and I don't expect it from a forum, and wouldn't expect it here if it allows Race Department to keep going strongly!
It was a shame RSC went down, I'd been putting in £10-20 a month since they came back, they had been excellent, but clearly something was amiss there and sapping £££...
I think moving forward Ruud would do well to have a skeleton forum at racer.nl, that is a solid fall back where the most important kind of forum stuff goes (release threads and bugs/faq's, pacejka (alpines data kind thing) and the like mainly)...
That said actually, has all that lot been lost? I hope it's dug up again as there were some really handy posts on there!
Not wanting to preach to those who run Race Department, but if image hosting causes you grief and adds to your costs having us here, then please feel free to not offer it to us
I totally agree! I host my own stuff at my site wich comes with my DSP account. Size 5Gig. Off course one day I´ll might be short, but there will always be other ways to host stuff.
Example if you reg at Adrive you get 50 gig of storage and you can share wathever you want! Just a tip!
Edit: Just uploaded all BMW´s that I have in one zip!
Want more? Requests no prob. if I got them!
There is no site on the internet that can host files for free. Also RD can't be run for free either unfortunately. But having a forum is not a big deal in costs. File and game servers are
Shame to so the old RSC forums gone, but I guess things don't last forever.
Very nice to be given a place here of course.
If I understood it right Mikkel & James will do everything possible to resurrect the RSC forum in a static state so it at least can be used for reference purposes
