GTR 1 - FIA GT Racing Game

I bought the GTR FIA GT first version. The game runs ok when in practice mode but when I launch challenge mode it crashes. I downloaded the updates and It still crashes. Also I can't select other cars and it won't save my steering set ups. Every time a start a race I have to re-enter the settings for my controller. Can someone help? thanks

I don't own GTR 1 so I'm afraid I can't help, but I'm sure that there are members around here that will be able to help you out !

Hi Leonardo.

Have you installed a 3rd party app like a new firewall or set up a new internet connection recently?

In other words, did you change anything to your computer that might be the cause of your problem?

GTR 1 isn't very played any more since GTR 2 came out, so it might be difficult to know if the problem is only for you or if the lobby is completely down.

As a general remark, what I can find on the web is a part of the GTR .plr file that gives info on ports that have to be open to be able to race online:


Client Port Start="34297" // Start port at which client looks for host games, range is 1025 - 65535
Host Port Start="34297" // Start port at which host games begin, range is 1025 - 65535

So make sure you have that range of ports open in your firewall / router settings: from 1025 to 65535


Also, have a go at trying to disable your firewall to see if it changes anything.

Hi folks. I have a similar problem with GTR2 too. When i'm in the game, i loose lobby connection every few seconds or minutes, then re-connecting and loosing again. Also, when i join a race, it takes a short time and i'm out. I even switched off my firewall, but the problem still exists. It maybe takes a little longer time, but nevertheless i'm out. I uninstalled the game, installed it again, but it didn't help. I'm very sad about that i can't play it.

Yesterday, i installed the lobby-fix-patch, and had a complete evening without loosing connection.
So it seems, that it works.
Now, i have only several servers, which i can't join,because of modified tracks, and several servers where i get kicked, and it seems this depends on car-mods or wrong cars on server installed.

additional question:
Is/are there any further game-update patch/-es?
