A new racing server

Post by English on Sun Oct 23, 2011 7:27 pm

Ok, here it is finally with so far, everything up n running... our new rFactor server!

it's located in the USA so pings to it should be both reasonable and around the same for everyone, and is managed by NRT racing servers.
The best way to see and get onto it, is to download their own client software here...

http://simulationmotorsports.info/update/SMSLobby_Installer/SMS_Lobby_Setup.exe

install it, and go into it, and in the options make sure you point the rFactor install to your rFactor folder (where its installed) and then next to that choose the default profile you want to use.

then select the 'rFactor' tab on the main lobby page to list their rfactor server, scroll and find DnD Racing... yay!

select it and click 'Launch Race' and it should go directly into the server without having to sit in the rfactor multiplayer lobby yay!

so anyway, the correct mod and race is loaded, if there are any issues then please let me, cropper or shooter know...

donington will be raced this Saturday, 23rd October... usual time.

thanks everyone for your patience and lets hope the rest of the season runs a lot smoother lol.

Top work guys, works great!!!

I have one question however with the stats. With the previous server we have practice and race stats etc set up on the petrol heads part of the DnD site, are we setting that up again for this new server?

Well there is a bit of a 'sticky wicket' in that area (upper class Brit speak there)...

You see, that stuff is run from a lovely little plugin into rfactor which is then published locally on a web server so you can view it. I don't think we can convince NRT to run this on their web servers :/

but, I can think of a way to periodically copy the info to another server that we run, and from there publish online... you don't need rfactor installed, you just need the info and the browser pages.

Ill have a think on that...
