The blindness seems to be strong here. The game somehow can't see the file. No idea why.

In the "Installed" directory, the .mas files RD_Endu_Spa and RD_IMSA_Spa (or somewhat like that) have been there. Deleted them, tried to join the server -> new one is there, but still my old error.

When trying to extract the rfm file from inside the newly created mas file, the mas tool crashes. :(

Is this known behaviour? Should I maybe forward that to one of the S397 guys/tag one of them?

Hmmm, try to just sort on type of file, and check if you have any uninstalled mod-files.

You can manually check it by using the "ModMgr" in Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin64
When you open the ModManager, down right in that, you have "packages dir", you need to choose "Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Packages" as the directory (it defaults to bin64/packages which doesn't exist!).
There you can see eventual errors.
It's basically the same thing, as whats in the new UI, just more "bare".

Any advice for the lmp2s?
Didn't drive any of them since over a year ago and didn't find time to practice at all. But I know spa and I've driven one lmp2 in a Silverstone multiclass event :p

Any of them being easy and okay on default setup?
And any advice for fuel? :roflmao: :whistling:

Cadillac. Start with full tank, pit when you are almost empty, use brainpower to figure out how much to fill :)

That's how I roll.

First, thank you for your help!

I guess I'll just really skip tonight. :(

That is a new one O.o

There are only two possibilites: My PC (especially my Steam SSD) is taking it personal and is pissed because I was thinking of replacing that particular SSD with a bigger one. Or it's just confirmation I really need to swap that SSD. :D

(It's not like there is plenty of storage left, but 12 GB free storage should not be causing any issues I guess.)
 
Im unsure if i can make it, my ISP decided to **** itself and i have no connection for 3 hours now. Hopefully it comes back before the race

Discard that, im back in 2021 with internet connection

It’s going to be tight time wise for me so just giving notice I may not make it but it looks like you’re not subscribed

Sorry I couldn't make it today was having trouble with the mod before practice and while trying to fix it the internet went out in my area for an hour so I was unable to join. Hopefully won't have everything against me next race so I can join in
 
Cut warnings in this game are absolutely me driving nuts. My only focus today was not getting a damn DT but it seems impossible. I have no idea what I am doing wrong, everyone seems to go just as wide or off track limits just the same. Really getting to the point it's not any fun anymore. :mad:

EDIT: Things like this get me every time...ugh only rF2, gotta love it

First I want to apologize to the Ferrari I tried to overtake like a moron twice..... Apologies to Steve also ! That was a bit of a mess with all the GTEs....

I have been dirty :sneaky: but Oh boy I was quick :alien: !!! Feels good to have the pace for once.

You guys are super quick in qualify but not any more during the race I am always surprised by that :p

Well that was a bit of an eye opener. I thought in offline practise I was maybe mid pack fast, then seeing a 2:12 pop up in quali i realised I was going to be at the back.
Also in the settings menu I had ABS on low from when I installed the game a few days ago, and I assumed that it would automatically turn it off as GTEs don't have it. Nope how wrong I was, so first time I came to Les Coombe, full lockup. All my offline practise had been with the ABS engaged. I basically had the warmup to try and get used to the brakes. Lesson learned, in a new game, learn all the settings!!
