hi, another technical problem:

I have re-activated my rFactor lite for the new Enduro-Mod, did a clean install, put in the mod and some tracks, everything's fine.

Joining my first online race in the mod yesternight here at RD I got a huge slowmo effect something like 5-10 mins into the race. We're talking about one frame every 30secs. I had to quit.
My team pointed me at the "racing in the dark" changes in the player file, so I dutifully did that.
Put up a test race with 25 AI and time accelaration x25 as was the case last night.

Same problem.

lowered the graphics.

Same problem.

Turned off the replay.

Same problem.

Bit at a loss now. When I first installed rFactor 12 months or so ago, it worked like a charm, both offline and online.

Now this.

Any ideas?

Must say that I had to install a new mainboard in the meantime, but it's the same build as the old one I used a year ago.

You mean the board is the same model or are you using the same installation of windows?

If it is the same installation of Windows... hmmmm.... I would fear that some driver are slowing you down and I would go for a clean install (maybe a test installation on a separate partition?).

Same mobo model.... then I would check, as Krister indicated, the BIOS. Maybe the mode for your PCIe slot in which you have th graphic adapter is wrong.

sounds very helpful, I am way to stupid to understand what you mean :) I am technically an analphabet (ask Krister, most of his graying hair is from my noobie-techno-questions on our home forum ...)

will do a fresh windows install at the end of the week. will this sort the BIOS (I doubt it ...)?
