Does anyone know how to get xfire to work with steam version of race 07 and gtr evo?

It's possible.

You have to firstly make sure hidden files are shown, then go:

C:\ProgramData\Xfire

Then open xfire_games.ini

Next step is to find Race07. Which should looks like this:

[5233]
LongName=RACE 07
ShortName=race07
LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\InstallPath
LauncherExe=steam.exe
DetectExe=SteamApps\*\race 07\Race_Steam.exe
InstallHint=steamapps\*\race 07\mss32.dll
Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% -applaunch 8600
_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS%
_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
RunElevated=1


And make the race07 section look like this instead:

[5233]
LongName=RACE 07
ShortName=race07
LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\InstallPath
LauncherExe=steam.exe
DetectExe=SteamApps\*\race 07\Race_Steam.exe
InstallHint=steamapps\*\race 07\mss32.dll
Launch=
_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% -applaunch 8600
_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS%
_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
RunElevated=1
InGameRenderer=D3D9
InGameFlags=USE_PRESENT|ENABLE_MOUSE|USE_DINPUT_MOUSE


This works, however, at every xfire program/game update this fix will have to be re-done.

I've asked a few times on the xfire forum to support Race 07 In game chat, they never listen :(
Its been mentioned on there a lot of times but they seem to think it isn't worth bothering, even though it works completely fine if you do it yourself.

is there a way to make it work with the offline version of gtr evolution?
