    After seeing the awesome videos of this league, I figured I should give the FSR mod a go. I am having some problems with actually getting the game to start up, though.

    As recommended by Dennis in the Mod download thread, I have created a fresh install of rFactor, but rather than download the entire installer over again I have just copied the relevant folders, .exes and .dlls to a new folder on my hard drive. I followed the instructions and installed the mod to this new destination. However, when I click on the rFactor.exe file in the FSR2010 folder, the initial loading picture flashes on the screen and then disappears; nothing happens after that.

    Am I launching the game the wrong way, or does it have something to do with the way I have created a fresh install?

    Why did you copy your Exe files over?
    If you do a new install you already get a new exe.
    If you want to keep your personal settings just copy the Userdata folder over to the new one thats it. :)

    I know that I get a new exe, Ivo. I just copied them all over because my download speeds are horrible, and I wanted to avoid downloading the installer again. I copied my UserData folder into the new destination as well. Theoretically I should be fine, right?

    Dont know maybe it can cause conflicts. Or there is something wrong when you installed Simsync
    But rFactor Lite is not that big. Just 100 mb i thought. :)

    I guess I have nothing to lose... I'm downloading rF Lite now. 20 minutes left to download the remaining 40%...
