Yo all,

Im having some problems trying to export my track to rfactor. I've been working on it for a few weeks and its my 1st one. I've had no problems exporting it to rf for testing, it worked fine, i added more and tested and everything was cool, But now, as its nearly finished, it wont export.

I've tried removing everything that was added after the last time it worked but its still not exporting for some reason. Im sure everything has been removed to its last working state but i cant be 100% as there is lots of vegetation. So before i scrap it all together, can anybody de-chipher this error message? Maybe someone can spot whats wrong? But its not the end of the world if its gone for good, as it was track making practice, but i would like to save it :wink2:

It was made on version 0.6.0.6, and i now have 0.7.0.0 but it still wont export.

Here's the error i get whilst trying to export to rFactor:-

Yeah, 1st place i looked m8. There's no venue.xml file or any other .xml files.
Also no 'venue' files in the track folder or anywhere else?? Hmmm

BTB saves to a folder which can be moved to anywhere you like. The current location can be found by looking at the Projects Folder setting under the View ... Options menu.

use filefront,or 4share.com to zip it up,make sure you zip the root folder, that way no problems of piddy trying to get it going.
