Afternoon to all:

I searched the forums trying to see how to set up a dedicated server...to no avail..

I have downloaded the Steam version after purchasing to the Dedicated server I have up..

I have opened all the ports...launched the dedicated...and when i launch my game...enter the IP it says no games available...
What might I be missing
Thanks in advance

Official Simbin lobby is definitely closed (13 years game) so if you want to play online then you must join a GTR2 league with dedicated servers.
German leagues are still very active nowadays such as :
http://www.koelschbierbude.de/
https://www.rennsimulanten.de/
https://www.rms-gt-racing.net/

Last year RD was supposed to open a GTR2 server here but I think idea was dropped ??? Perhaps it could happen if many members sign a petition ???

Edit: ahh I think I have read your post to fast lol, you don't want to join a server but create a new online server for GTR2 right ?
So I suggest you to ask more info to @Dumeklemmer here via pm as he is admin at bude websites ;)

I'm not sure any longer ... but does GTR2 player side not need a kind of Online Lobby Patch ?
We had a test 3 or 4 years ago ... and I found that I told a driver to install it ... the link given was at NG at the time.
What I think to remember also is that the game was rather slow to let the server appear in the list with the IP adress at the 1st connection.

Thanks Fellas for the replies...much appreciate it..
I do own a Game Server Company that only does Race Simulation Servers
I did host 1/2 dozen GTR2 dedicated servers like you said over 14 years ago..and can't for the life of
me remember how to have them do a direct connect via IP/Port so racers can connect.

I kinda figured the way it is acting as it looks for a Matchmaker Lobby...But do see that you can connect
using direct IP...but to no avail.

As my Servers currently do host the rF1 Match Maker Lobby and Reiza has a dedicated to host there lobby..I thought that there might have been a backdoor like they do that lets you connect via the Query port.. But so far no Joy...
Hopefully I can get some-one that reads the thread that can help me sort this out..
Again..thanks for the replies...
