I'm assuming you guys paid to unlock rFactor. Question

I'm out of the loop on crossover - no idea what this crosstie thing is Neutral
It's 5 activation till you have to renew, by email, at no charge.
Or, you can back up your Trymedia folder:

CrossTie files are cool little scripts that automate the install process for Windows apps and games in CrossOver (WINE) for Mac. With a single click on the CrossOver website, the script goes and fetches IE7, DX9, rFactor, and several other little Windows patches that seem to be necessary, installs them all and... VROOM.

No study just click and Twisted Evil

"Li'l RLer Server" changes?

Post  Kenners on Fri Nov 18, 2011 12:17 pm

I'd like to see about updating the server a little more regularly. As a first step, I'd like to put the "V8 Unleashed" car mod on there; then, maybe a couple of the tracks that are up & coming in the Race2Play site, with the expectation that we (or at least I) can have some participation in some of the races there.

Comments?

Kenners

Edit - Here are links to the mods I'm thinking of:

http://files.race2play.com/rf/V8Factor%20Unleashed.exe

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Istanbul.exe

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Barbagallo.exe

I just love to comment on that topic Wink

I have no idea what is played in rfactor these days, honestly i can hardly await to spend some bucks on rfactor 2 - even if it were just to see what is possible im sim racing today and if the mac hardware is capable to handle it...

I am not sure if i got it right. do i have to download that stuff manually or is it served by the server if i connect?
I am willing and will download it of course.
Would be fun to have some more percentage of my foot in rF.

And the team has to get some points, that's when we all come into play, no?

so - just do it,

I looked at the events coming up that used the V8 Supercars that Dandy referred to.. For any particular event, there's a list of files needed. That's where those links came from - download and install. I think I'll install them & configure Li'l RLer server to host them. Look for me over the weekend, early evening in the Eurozone...

Don't forget teamspeak - Server amckenzie81506.dyndns.org, password blad3runn3r.

Cheers,

Kenners

EDIT - I pulled the trigger on the server changes, the new mods are installed & running. see this thread for links to the downloads:

Dandy et al-

I'm thinking of updating Li'l RLer Server again. I'd like to have more of a choice, as in maybe have the Skoda and the V8 mods both available.. and then put the tracks on there for upcoming R2P events. Is this feasible? I do have the Skoda mod downloaded (and the skins), but not yet installed.

I didn't think server set ups could run more than one race series type at a time. But what do I know. hehe

Well, in the server, it appears you can select "all tracks & vehicles" at the first screen, then select specifically which cars to allow in the second, and then which tracks in the third. So.. then you can choose the car you want when you join. The downside: If there's AIs, they could be any car, and if someone joins, they could pick any car. But, workable.

Kenners

FYI - I added Skoda and the GP '79 tracks to the server; download at these links:

http://files.race2play.com/rf/Skoda.exe

that is very cool. Like a Propeller Race Works test circuit! It's great that you guys tweak the set ups. Every time I go in there to try stuff I end up braking something and the car drives badly. Love the fact that you and Dandy work on set ups. I'm having a hard enough time to do half decent times.

FYI - I'm planning on participating in several upcoming Skoda races; to that end, I've set up the server to host the tracks listed here:

http://race2play.com/schedule/show/1212

The page has links to all the events in the series, and each event has a link to all the files used in the event. To make it easy, I'll link all the tracks here:

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Misano.exe

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Road_Atlanta.exe <- we should all have this one ;-)

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Rattlesnake%20Point.exe

(Barcelona is one of the built-in tracks)

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Watkins_Glen.exe <- yay!

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Virginia.exe <- Yay too!

http://files.race2play.com/rf/tracks/Nurburgring07.exe <- Oh yeah, baby!

Cheers,

Kenners

Some distressing news in the R2P Season 23 Series announcement:Guest members (i.e. free accounts) will no longer be able to race under a team banner. It's unclear if Guest members will be able to belong to a team - I would certainly hope so. I fail to understand the reasoning behind this decision.
I've posted a complaint in the discussion thread, as I feel this is punitive to supporting team owners like myself. Hopefully the admins will come to their senses. While membership does have its benefits, I will not ask anyone to upgrade their membership for the sake of scoring team points, and no one should feel they are obliged to. If R2P sticks with this decision, then I may fold the team and revert to a free account myself when my membership runs out in six months. While it will still remain a great site, it's not the only one of its kind...

Ah, so that's what happened.. All of a sudden you weren't there! Sleep well.

Dandy-

I have to say, $8 a month is annoying.. R2P does have MANY organized races. Will watch for more news.

Roger that. Official word is guests can be team members, just not able to race under its banner. Annoying, but not a huge deal. The team will continue to exist for at least the next six months. We'll see if saner heads prevail. In the meantime, race and be merry!

Well.. I may be 49 years old, but my wife is apparently still willing to indulge the kid In me. I got a new racing wheel for Christmas! Wonder what it would cost to send my old one to Alphonse...

Course, there's going to be a learning curve with this new one.. And I'll be able to see if it'll work in Redline. In case anyone else is wondering.

See you on the track!
