    Is the lifetime subscription price worth it? Is the multiplayer popular?
     
  5. Will those who have the non-steam version get a code like Reiza did?

  7. Though if you read the FAQ you'd see that they have a limit on number of keys per day they can send out, so you'll just have to try again tomorrow.
    I did however encounter a different problem, I activated my Lifetime license (it even said rF2 with lifetime in steam when I activated), but the launcher now tells me I have no valid subscription for multiplayer.

    Edit: The exact wording is: "Online access for this account has expired"
     
  8. Kjell, I already contacted you personally but for the record, we're looking into this. Hold on!

    Question... Can we migrate to steam for free if I have the yearly sub right now then pay for a year?
     
  11. If you have rF2 with a yearly subscription now, you can migrate to Steam and you get the base game that you can play off-line. You will then indeed be able to pay for a year to get your subscription back. It was impossible for us to migrate the subscriptions because of technical limitations.

    Don't migrate to steam until your year is up.:thumbsup:

    The migration is for free. But you'll lose your yearly online subscription.

    So you have 3 options:
    - Migrate now and buy the online subscription again with a 40% discount.
    - Migrate when your online sub expires and buy a online sub (full price)

    Or

    Buy a new lifetime steam version with a 40% discount.
    You still have your normal rF2 account so you can install and use multi-installs, different builds etc...
     
  14. FYI, multiple installs can still be done with Steam. I still need to write a guide on that but there is one for rFactor 1 on Steam and the mechanism is the same. Add a launch option that points to a different config.ini which points to a different path.

    I don't want to give up my non steam, so I'll probably spend the 19 for a second install.
