    Guys, please take note of the added download link for the mod. It's a minature file, so should be no problem downloading. We use the regular GP track for this race.

    hello marco,

    i am not good in understand actual rfactor2 all the things, but i have a question.

    i did download the "club racing mod" and install, my question is....
    can i do delete this mod again after the race and i can still drive watskin glenn offline? is this only a short download that we can drive online the megane on this watskin glenn track?
    or is this a MOD that for every RD club race will be needed?
    i do ask, because i will not have to much things in my PACKAGES folder, that i will not confused in future if to much are in this folder and i do not know what file is for what thing.
    so it would be good to know, if i can delete this thing later again and drive offline watskin glenn without problems.

    i am not sure if i do drive this race, i am much interested to test rfactor2 online, but i am not sure if i can drive without problems, before new update comes i had problems in public server, cars did jump sometimes and my FPS was to much low with more cars on track (especialy the start, 1st corners), offline i have now much more FPS, hope it works online now ok for me too.

    Yes, you can remove the mods afterwards. It is indeed just a little mod to make the content available online, and is seperate of the Offline mod.

    To uninstall:

    Open you MOD manager from rfactor launcher.
    UNinstall the mod you want to remove.
    Open your windows explorer
    Delete the mod from your package folder
    Go up 1 level in the folders. There you have a folder called MANIFEST.
    In this folder, a file is present you need to manally delete as well.
    In MANIFEST, look for the file [modname].MFT. You have to delete that one.
    Go 1 folder up again, and go into the folder INSTALLED
    There is a folder called rFm there, in which you have to delete [MODNAME].mas You have to delete that one as well.

    Now, the MOD is removed, and all files are cleaned up. This process will probably be automized in the final release, but for now this is the way to clean everything up.

    Server is up! :)
     
  14. Mod & Track work for me as expected. Still got the very bright sun issue through the Megane windscreen, but sign me up please :).
     
  15. Sign me up please

    This is my first online race outside Richard Burns Rally, so I have a few questions.

    First my name on the server when I just joined to check my mods was tralic, the nickname I use, do I need to change it to Jeff Brown? I looked for a min and couldn't find anywhere to change name in the settings.

    I also noticed the pit entry is a little strange on this track, can we cut into the pit entry land on the last corner or must me stay outside the white line?

    Do we start sitting still or do a rolling start?
     
  16. Hi Jeff, i will try to answer the questions i know the answer to :)

    Yes you need to change your username, open your rFactor 2 directory, open UserData, open the player.plr file in Notepad..
    Then look for [ DRIVER ]
    This is how mine looks, compare to yours, and edit the one needed.. REMEMBER TO BACKUP THE FILE FIRST!! :)
    Player Name="Joakim Skalstad"
    Player Nick="Joakim Skalstad"

    The other questions i'll let Marco answer :)

    Good luck, and welcome to rFactor2 !

  17. Kieron, try adjusting the graphic settings in the game to reduce the rattle in the FFB, i had the same issue, but after tweaking with the setup it got better...

    I have to see for the pit entry. Had not noticed that before.
    The start will be standing.
