Only thing I can suggest is check the install again Jonaton. Must be something on your end as no one else is reporting the issue.

Problem solved after a bit of researching the deep dark corners of the Internet..... R2P.....

The track isn't optimized for low-graphic so when I turned up the texture detail, that fixed the issue.
I might have another issue instead but I'll know after I've done some running, if so I'll update you with my absence (lag/stuttering related due to the graphics settings needed to run the track at all).

Umm.... so I just noticed that I need a different circuit than the one I've been practicing on and have downloading it but I can't run it.

I get the error of "failed to load Texture Road1_s" or something of the same for Material Road2"

Any suggestions on what is going on? Otherwhise I'm affraid I'm a no-show Sad

One problem for me is that none of the 2 items are around in the circuit folder scratch

EDIT: I can run the original Carrera_C4 version ('88) track but it won't run the '75 circuit... scratch

Hello Jonatan,
please try to use / copy another userdata directory into your rFactor installation of your TCL Mod. Our Pascal Jostarndt has had the same problem and that was the only way to fix it.

It seems there's an issue with the standings (not the points themselves), the points from this race should be on race #8, as there are 4 races left.

So it should, will correct in the morning. I thought #8 was still the N/C race at Dijon, but I guess Frank edited it already.

Sorry guys, not a good night for me! :doh:

I didn't have time for practice, so my pace was far from the top runners.

Race1
Had a great start, than slowly went down on the ladder.
Than I made a stupid mistake at the end of the back straight.
I wanted to shift down from 5th to 4th, but I pulled the stick to 2nd gear. :aie: :aie: :aie:
INSTANT LOCK UP :doh: ...spun out to the sand.
Joined to 10th place.
Took back a few spots and finished 8th or 7th.

Race2
Did a fantastic start, jumped up to the 1st spot from 7th or 8th place. :banane:
Than I tried to defend the inside line from Jonatan.
I had to slow down, because I was on the inside line...didn't want to squeez anyone on the outside.
So I started to brake a bit earlier. Maybe Jonatan not expected this from me.
He hit me and I spun out...not able to save it. Sad
After the 1st race, I knew that my pace was not enough to hold back the whole field...but bad things happen, so no worries. :drink:
Joined back last place.
Followed Richard and Jose.
Jose was too fast for me....he disappeared after two laps.
I managed to pass Richard, it was a nice battle.
Than he tapped me at the first chicane, I spun out and hit the wall.
Got a puncture. In my head, I turned off race mode and switched on to fun mode. :D
Went for a stop to change the front tires, than came back to the track, where Jonatan waited for me.
Nice, time for some tandem drift :aie: :aie: :aie:

Not took too much points, but I had a great time with you guys. So I'm satisfied with the last night action. :top:

Grats to JP....man, you're a robot. Win most of the races without any mistake. Respect :chinois:

Comme d'hab' quand je n'aime pas un circuit, j'y cours relativement bien. P9 dans la première et P6 dans la seconde, c'est plus qu'honorable. Je me suis même sortie de la piste quand à la fin du premier tour de la course 2, j'ai vu que j'étais 3ème. affraid N'en croyant pas mes yeux, je me suis rapproché de l'écran pour voir que c'était bien "3" écrit dans les petits ronds. Du coup, j'ai un peu oublié de prendre le premier gauche rapide, et j'ai fait un joli tour dans le sable :aie: , ce qui a permis aux véritables prétendants de ces tops positions de me passer. Descendu en P6, j'allais rallier l'arrivée à cette même place.
Merci à David Miller, pour avoir retarder la remontée de Matthias. Twisted Evil
On ne pourrait pas refaire Charade, s'il vous plait? Car c'était mon circuit préféré, et des problèmes de lags m'avaient empêché d'enchainer 2 tours.  :jp:

@Matthias, for the bump, in the first race, there wasn't problem. I didn't feel the hurt. I saw you in my mirror. And to the end of the back straight, you weren't here. I saw your car jump on the track before, maybe a little lag.

Ca a été le bazar au départ à l'avant : de la pole, j'ai encore pris un mauvais départ, et j'étais 4 ou 5e avant le 1er virage. Mais ensuite, certains ont tenté de passer en poussant tout le monde, du coup, tous ceux devant moi ont fini au tas, et un peu comme toi, je me suis retrouvé en bonne position par hasard :jp:

J'avais bien vu des gens au tas au premier gros freinage, mais j'ai mis bien longtemps à percuter que j'étais en 3ème position. Toutefois j'avais au moins fait un départ correct. Je crois que Franky a laissé à la maison quelques germes de son ADN de partant fou, et que ça m'a imprégné depuis quelques temps. :hihi:

Bonjour Messieurs,

Trop class ton avatar Ben, il a de la gueule :slurp:

Perso, passé de 19 à 10ème, me suis pris pour dieu mais Marie ma vite remis les pied sur terre :aie:

Toujours à la recherche d'infos pour les setups, j'ai envoyé 2 MP à des pilotes BM mais silence radio :hum:

Pour la course d'hier par exemple, j'étais en médium, les pneus soft auraient tenus la distance à votre avis ?

Merci.

Well...

Considering I had no practice on that specific layout of the circuit prior to the event (me not liking to practice online unless I'm working on a setup with a friend/teammate) and then the subsequent trouble with getting the track to run in the first place, I was a bit "revved up" coming into it all Embarassed

Qualifying went really well, the track suited the Mustang over a single lap pretty well, there were just a few too many long corners in the last sector for it to be perfect but a very nice time anyway Smile


Race1 and I got off to a decent start. Feels like I had a bit more in it at the start but still managed to outdrag everyone going into T1 which was crucial for me to even have a chance at a good position in the race.

Managed to stay ahead in the first lap but then JP was free of everyone else and started to try to preassure me. Even though I didn't feel pressured as such I still had to drive defensively in those really curvy spots but JP got passed me a couple of times and in the end he managed to pull a small gap before the last two corners where I then had a bit of help from Jan (no worries about the touch mate, you missjudged my mid-corner speed, I've done that myself before, it's easily done), I was hoping to be given the position back but as it was such a touch and go incident on the replay, no anger on my side.

Rejoined the track in the middle of a fight for 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th. Sorry for the less than decent rejoin Peter, I checked my mirror and thought the track was clear for a second until I heard your toy in my ears :smil20:
Pulled in between Peter and Jose and did my best to stay ahead of Peter in the first sector to then go ahead and pull past Jose and Maté down the back straight.

I honestly thought I had then cleared enough to take my usual line through the following 2 corners but suddenly a wild, slightly fishtailing Mercedes appeared in from of me in the form of Jose who must have Round 9 - Grand Prix de France - Le Castellet [May 6th] - Page 2 1623587389 his car through the fast right hander and then braked very late into the next right hander. Did my best to hook onto his car which I could do after a small battle with Maté before his misstake at the end of the back straight.

The rest of the race was pretty much a transportation of a Ocean Liner, I needed the Atlantic, and at times the Pacific Ocean, to turn the car in the long right hander that tightens lol!

Jan sadly has his off after him and Jose had had a tight hard battle for 2nd position so I could grab a 3rd place, sort of undeserved yet deserved scratch


2nd Race and I had a much worse start but could still drag past a few of the cars but then I missjudged the situation as I thought me and Maté, at least Maté, was clear of traffic so I only slowed down to be able to make the corner and still leave a bit of space on the outside but Maté wanted to leave even more space so I gave him a touch which then turned into a stacking effect with saw him, me and Jose, maybe more besides, off the track, I'm terribly sorry guys Crying or Very sad

I nudged the wall and got a puncture so I pitted, got it fixed, and then tried to catch up to those ahead but when I saw Maté in the pits I decided that I'd wait and just have a bit of fun as I realized he probably was in the same boat as me damage whise.

So for the rest of the race we drifted around the track and switched positions while trying to keep out of the way of those lapping us (sorry to anyone held up by us, we did our best to get out of the way  Embarassed  )



So overall a good event considering I was able to get a podium but I feel as if I could have gotten even more had I had the right track right away and just gotten more track time in.

But anyway, thank you to everyone Smile


PS: Richard, honoring Kieth on the 20th year of his passing (your profile picture)? If so, you have my deepest respect for also thinking him one of the best TC drivers of his generation :drink:
