Sudden disconnect problem.

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Erik Jakobsson, Apr 5, 2011.

  1. Hello! Been racing race07 on and off for almost a year. Never been active for longer periods but i never had an issue with the game.

    Now ever since the patch came out before Formula RR ive been having disconnection problems. Not on my own server but only on others. This is completley ruining it for me, no other applications or programs lose their connection for me.

    This happens 5-10min after i join a server. I have already tried reinstalling but that didnt help-

    Anybody else experiencing this problem and maybe have a solution? If not i might have to put race 07 on the shelf..

    If you have any modifications installed, please remove those first.

    For a clean install completely delete the following folder:
    X:/Steam/steamapps/yoursteamname/race 07/
    Then restart your game to unpack the core files of the game and you have a clean game without having to redownload anything.

    Lets see if the problem then still persists.

    Follow what Bram suggested, but make sure to test before you put any of your mods back in to see if one of the mods is the issue.
  4. Alreeady removed all the mods and tried a reinstall, sadly i got the same problem. Also removed all my skins folders exc.
  5. Try this Erik. This might help. Although this is to do with the update. The method might still work;

    That would be a huge bug imo if you have to reinstall GB's of files into a other locations to avoid disconnections.
  7. Bram all Erik needs to do is install steam again in the new location. Then go to Control Panel\Program Features uninstall all the mods that are there.
    Then copy over the main folders only...... (But not skins that have been added) Make a copy of his Documents\Simbin\Race07 folders ( minus the skins one) so he doesn't lose them. Then reboot and then start up the Steam and try and start the game.
    Erik knows how to do this, so he should not have any problems.
