    So .. when I want to play DTM, I doubleclick the RRR-E desktop icon and RRR-E starts. When I'm in the main menu I click on the DTM symbol in the menu "circle" and switch to DTM. So far so good .. anyhow, replays and screenshots that I "produce" while playing DTM get stored in the media section of RRR-E as there is no media section in DTM. But the weird thing is: when I publish screenshots to my profile page, they won't appear here:

    http://game.raceroom.com/users/<username>/

    but here:

    http://game.raceroom.com/dtm/users/<username>/

    Wouldn't it be much more logical to have either two media sections in the game or just publish all the screenshots to the main profile page?

    Thank you, Jay!

    It might be good to have separate media sections (for RRR-E and all the "inner" games like DTM, ADAC, WTCC) in the game. And: complete (!) profile pages for each and every "inner" game. Right now, there is a screenshots page for RRR-E:

    http://game.raceroom.com/users/<username>/screenshots/

    but there is no screenshots page for DTM:

    http://game.raceroom.com/dtm/users/<username>/screenshots/

    which makes it impossible to share DTM screenshots to Facebook using the "facebook" button on a DTM screenshot.

    Also, I'm having a lot of problems with logitech profiler trying to switch between R3E and W.I.P It can't seem to differentiate the two and always loads W.I.P. So of course I can only use 360 deg rotation in WIP. If I load R3E I revert back to "Global" 900 degrees which is no good at all.

    Am I missing something obvious here?

    Oh ok, I've always known WIP as work in progress but I didn't realize you were talking about the DTM multiplayer alpha. I thought you may have been referring to some other racing game that I couldn't think of.

    I'm guessing this is a problem because the Logitech profiler is treating them as two seperate games even though DTM is inside of R3E?

    Did you point Logitech to both exe?
    Did you make 2 profiles?

    I only have the problem that the 2 documents folders share some of the settings (sound, graphics,...) with Windows 8.1
