    No matter how good you are, it always feels better. When I think about where we were when we started and what happens now ... no one expected that. But, it is the way it is and we have to deal with it and learn it. We have enough time to think about improvements. But I have to say that some drivers always report very late to see how full the grid will be. If ever, and is disadvantaged, it is a pity and we are sorry, but the next race is sure to come.

    Thanks for the test race, that seemed really useful I did have fun despite some mistakes on my part; I hope that it will be a good learning experience and that I will manage to do better for the main race!
    @Mehmet Ugur Elveren Is it you I caught too fast in the last corner? I'm truly sorry, I was surprised to get to you so early, I was just trying to get behind for the pits straight. I certainly was not trying to pass you in the corner, sorry. I passed a couple of BTCC cars earlier without such a problem but they probably had better tires then... I felt BTCC cars were really nice during the race, thank you for that! I hope you feel the same about me (except Mehmet who has the right to be angry at me...)! That was not always easy.
    Quali was quite hard with traffic, I'm not use to that! Again, sorry to the fast z4 I kept behind me at the end of Q2: with 2 mn to go I still had not been able to set a proper lap, I really needed to make one...:)

    @Dennis Richter Are you sure you linked the right race?

    @Simon Christmann : good to see you guys trying some different things for the race management, but could you either provide the information on the forums well before race start or make sure that everyone is guaranteed to be paying attention during the qual/warm up as you explain it? Chat as as well as TS explanations, keeping the drivers from driving while you are explaining, that sort of thing. Various techniques have been used in other leagues to capture and hold the attention of the participants. I've also seen chat messages from race control during the formation lap to remind drivers of the routine - this morning it was clear that many of the participants were thinking about the race rather than the shake-out (if they even heard your instructions in the first place) and then at that first start......better left unsaid.

    Sorry I couldn't stay while you sorted out the race and got it restarted; I was hoping to get in at least 1/2 of the race but I had things to do in RL and so had to leave. Glad to see that you did indeed get it back on track - hope that it gave you the information you needed.

    Slow downs and freezes on every lap in practice and quali,some in the same place.It almost caused a couple incidents.I skipped the race,it's really basically not practical to race like this until there is a solution.

    Are you using DX9 or DX11 version of rF2? I ran DX9 with 10 year old PC and it worked like a charme even at the start. Was suprised myself.

    dx11 since it's the default now and it's rubbish.I guess it could be issues with the track also.I never had problems with rf2 in dx9 but it's not supported anymore.Always something with rf2.:rolleyes:

    You can downgrade in Steam to Version 1109, it still works.

    or you could just select the dx9 version of the current build through game properties on Steam like I did
     
  15. They are problems with the track. Its having huge clip planes which is causing a lot of problems to the people but also to the server side.

    I believe it will be fixed in the next update that will be launched in 1 or 2 days.

    Cheers.

    Vmod is in the making an server will be up shortly. There are some changes to pitlane and garage to have enough space for 50 vehicles.

    Don't worry if your team skin is not shown correctly. There is a mistake in the naming of the skin which will be sorted tomorrow. i'm currently working on a fix.

    Cheers
