  1. There is a lot of information on RBR/RSRBR available here, and it may be a bit difficult to find the information you need. I hope this post, containing some of the more common problems, will be of some help. It will be updated as time goes by.

    If you notice an error, or have a suggestion/solution, send me a PM please.

    How do I join the rally club?
    Please refer to this post, it contains everything you need to know to join.​

    Game doesn't work/game crashes
    If you are using Windows Vista or 7, make sure you didn't install the game in Program Files.
    If that's not the issue, check that you have installed all updates.
    And if that doesn't solve your problem, post it, and someone will try to help.
    If all else fails, try reinstalling everything, it has been known to work.​

    Pacenotes are in French
    After installing RSRBR, the default language for the profile Mulligatawny is French. To change that, launch the regular game (without RSRBR, or go to Play Alone, and start RBR SSE), choose the profile Mulligatawny, go to Options -> Pacenotes, and change the flag to the one you want.​

    Wheel and game settings aren't being saved
    Same as with French pacenotes. You need to save your settings under the profile Mulligatawny, in the regular game (without RSRBR, or go to Play Alone, and start RBR SSE).​

    Graphics adjustments
    Any resolution and aspect ratio (no stretching of the image) is supported by installing FixUp 1.7 (included with RSRBR)

    Set the resolution you want in RichardBurnsRally.ini:

    And use these settings in FixUp.ini:

    Fixing the aspect ratio (no stretching of the image) with CamHack (superseded by FixUp above):
    Run CamHack.exe once. Then open config.ini in your RBR install folder. You need to change the FOVY parameter to suit your resolution.
    FOVY is determined by: (4*YRES)/(3*XRES)

    For example, to get a 1920x1080 resolution with the correct aspect ratio, you would do the following:
    Set the resolution in RichardBurnsRally.ini:

    Set the FOVY in config.ini:

    Window mode
    Richard Burns Rally doesn't allow alt+tabbing, so if any window pops up from the background, the game will be minimized to desktop, and you won't be able to go back.
    The solution is to switch the game to window mode. Provided you have the FixUp plugin installed, simply edit these two lines:

    In RichardBurnsRally.ini:

    In FixUp.ini:

    HDR plugin
    Download and unzip these files to your install folder.

    Clock Synchronization to RSCenter
    Some people have reported problems with synchronizing their PC clock to the RSCenter clock for On-Line Rallys. This has mainly been reported for drivers in USA (or those who are in "GMT minus" zones).
    Please refer to this topic for a work around.

    This issue is also a problem for New Zealand drivers during DST periods. They require a setting of GMT +13 hrs, but RSRBR2011 only goes to GMT +12. NZ drivers may need to use the same work around.

    Can't join a Public Session after the Session has started

    Can't Connect to the Server in RSCenter
    If you are using a different browser to IE, your IE browser may not allow connection.
    Try this:
    Open Internet Explorer go to Tools / Internet Options / Connection / LAN Settings and tick the Automatically detect settings button.

    Have you checked Rallyesim for your problem?

    Here at RD, we try to help solve people's problems as best we can, but the main RSRBR program is designed by Rallyesim. They understand the problems far better, so always check their website to see if they have a solution.
