    I just installed the game on my new pc. I start the game, it sits there as a black screen and does nothing. I looked in my task manager and it was using 0.5% cpu and 80mbs of ram. So basically sitting there to sit there.

    I also check game integrity and it has 105 errors, but it fixed them but still the same problem. I installed the DX provided in the redist folder, but still no luck.

    What can I do? I also don't understand how games can break before I even ****in' install them but whatever.

    Try turning off all controllers and only use keyboard, just to get he game going. Sometimes strange USB ordering or controllers themselves require some in-game configuration that can only happen after an initial start and close (that you might be stuck not able to complete).

    If it's not that, do a Steam file integrity check and fix.

    Most likely it’s any graphics card or OC program that’s open in the background. Close them and start AutoMobilista, takes a little while to start.

    I have the same issue as OP, I tried a clean install and verifying the files' integrity, but nothing's worked. :thumbsdown:

    I managed to get the game working again.

    All I had to do was delete everything in Gamedata/Shared except coreshaders.mas.

    Gamedata/Shared in that folder shall only one file be there and that is the coreshaders.mas file it exist so much ShaderPack in the rfactor folder for many different rfactor mods
    best is before people install or drag and drop ams mods to take a close look what files it is that comes with a new mod or car
    so ams works best as it is from scratch
