  1. I've followed this set by set and still couldn't get it to work. I don't know why they changed it from the old system which actually worked. Is there an easier way to make a server then this because I don't have a PHD in coding

  2. Great guide and got my server up and running. One thing I would add is copying the ModMgr.exe file from the bin64 directory to the root of your rfactor 2 install as this ensures the path structure is correct.

  3. I'm really surprised this doesn't have this written on the guide already but this steam CMD executable must be ran from your windows drive. Not any other drive on your computer. It doesn't work on any other drives you have installed. D E H etc. Also it would have been so much easier to watch if you installed a brand new server just for this video. To stop new users doing this for the first time to have any user errors.

  4. I'll have to have a look at this tomorrow properly on the PC. Creating something similar took me a long time and drove me a bit insane so it will be interesting to see your approach Michi 😉
