    Hey, I recently got GTR: Evo. At the moment I am capable of racing at 95% for World Touring Cars and Mini's. and 85%-90% at The GT's and F3000's, and I was wondering what sort of level I need to be at before I'm good enough to race online or if you have any setup tips :)

    Thanks

    If you have the game and an internet connection and common sense you are ready to join online Matt. Every minute spend offline wondering if you fit is wasted time :)

    To be honest I'd rather get good at the tracks in practice mode with other real live people. I have to be in an odd mood to want to play by myself.

    I would race online, but my wheel is broken atm, and can only race with keyboard. Could I race online with a keyboard, or would I be far to slow? I can win comfortably at 80% in the FBMW's.

    Sorry to Matt for hijacking this thread, hope you don't mind mate.

    I would imagien that racing with keybaord is certainyl possible but obviously nowere near as controlled or quick as a wheel.

    For myself I would never try and play the game with keys even right now as I sit here with a smashed up Momo pedal set after one too many races lost due to the crappy pots problem!!

    I will just wait to play with the G25, playing with keys just seems a bit Spectrum now!!

    I race with a keyboard so It's not hijacking really :)

    Just another thing. I see all of the videos on youtube, and there is a specific skin that they all use, minus names bein put on. Is this compulsery for casual racing as well?

    If i understood you correctly you refer to league racing that has a specific skinpack. For club racing that is not required. You can use what ever you like and if it is a customskin (ie not built in skin) just post the download link and you're good to go. Just remember that if the skin you chose is not downloaded (and installed..) by other players they will see you in a default skin (the first onw in the list) as GTR uses a system that the skin isn't downloaded when you connect the server. It has to be downloaded and installed BEFORE you start the game.

    In serverlist set filter to RaceDep - this will bring you the RD servers.

    I know that, but are all servers online currently free to join, or are any leagues?

    How does racing online work? Do you just join a server and start driving? Or do you have to sign up here on the forum and get a password or something?

    Edit: Oh, and if it's just to join a server, how do you get a race started? Do you have to agree with the others on to meet at the starting line and do a countdown or something?

    You first need to become a racing club member. Application

    Click on the LINK look for races that you wish to sign up to whether it is PC, Xbox or Playstation formats.

    Make sure you read the top post of each event which give you all the info that you require for that event.
