    I found something similar but it's not solved in this thread:
    http://www.racedepartment.com/bobs-track-builder/23981-exporting-into-rfactor-question.html

    So I'm asking again.
    This is my specific problem.
    I'm making my first track in BTB and I didn't realize that I use wrong Venue name and Track name. So I want to change it, but! When I change it when I export track to rfactor it disapear from list of tracks. I rtied to delete new and old folder with track, delete .hat file, all files with name of my track (replay, .xml, motec files..) but still cen't get it in game. I also changed xml file in BTB where is written venue and track name, and still no luck. If I change it back to original venue and track name track is listed in game again. I don't know what can I do else.

    Also, is there some option in BTB where I write track real location and lenght, image of loader or I must change those manualy when the track will be finnished?

    You set these by editing the location and length in the .gdb file for your track, just near the top. Remember if you re-export the .gdb file from BTB later you'll have to do it again!

    For the loading image you need to replace the yourtrack_loading.jpg - make it the same resolution as your monitor for the best effect.

    Sorry I can't answer the first part . . .

    Thanks chub, I found that, but it's little lame to do it every time I export track from BTB. I will do it on the end of making my track, or sometimes later and backup it, so I don't need to do it avery time I export track.

    OK, Here it is.
    My first names when I for the first time made project in BTB:

    Your Venue Name: Petrinja Street Race Short
    Your Track Name: Petrinja Street Race


    from gdb:
    Code:
    PetrinjaStreetRace
    {
      Filter Properties = RoadCourse 2005 SRGrandPrix OWChallenge 
      Attrition = 30
      TrackName = Petrinja Street Race
      EventName = Petrinja Street Race // shows up in rFactor as the subfolder.
      GrandPrixName = Petrinja Street Race //this must be the same as event name in order to sort circuit info correctly.
      VenueName = Petrinja Street Race Short // shows up in rFactor as the main folder.
    and this version works in rfactor.

    I want change it to:

    Your Venue Name: Petrinja Street Race
    Your Track Name: Petrinja Street Race Short


    I get this is gdb:

    Code:
    PetrinjaStreetRaceShort
    {
      Filter Properties = RoadCourse 2005 SRGrandPrix OWChallenge 
      Attrition = 30
      TrackName = Petrinja Street Race Short
      EventName = Petrinja Street Race Short // shows up in rFactor as the subfolder.
      GrandPrixName = Petrinja Street Race Short //this must be the same as event name in order to sort circuit info correctly.
      VenueName = Petrinja Street Race // shows up in rFactor as the main folder.

    All looks ok but it wont show in track list.

    I didn't change anything. I'm talking about exported files from BTB. And I will make those changes once when track will be finished

    In the Export dialogue, you can't use spaces or underscores, the words have to all be joined together. YourTrackName

    Baybe someone will know what is the problem with this. That's not on my priority list right now anyway. It will be at the end of making track ;-)

    I also tried with short venue name before posting here. Something like just simple: Petrinja. Maybe is problem with just track name not venue name. I'll try that today. I didn't try to short venue and track name together

    Guys thats it!!!
    I found problem. Venue track can be long but track name can't! I rename Track name to shorter name: "Petrinja Short" and now it works!
    Thanks to all who helped with this problem.
