Ok, so, I managed to make my AMS work, even though, Im unable to connect to server, I get repetedly "timed out" messege, so if there are some setup rules I should follow, please let me know. I can see the server, but only when I enter IP adress, in other case, I see no servers of any kind at all... ??
Due to mod issu, I have it now, but the in the main menu where Im to pick up the series I have everything messed up. This mode is on the first place under StockCar logo.. but other than that, it works ok..
And finaly, Id like to book the #66 Mercedes, but since Im not going to practice a lot, and Im not sure If Im going to be able to attend the race (or even able to get online), if anybody else comes with the AMG wish, Ill pass it..
also i found the individual road america download on race dept works if you don't feel like doing 5+ gb in one go
Yes I believe the tracks can be downloaded individually at racedepartment but I'd highly recommend getting the track pack. Patrick's work is at/near Reiza quality. If you can swing the 5Gb download its imo a must have. Its like a free DLC package.
Since we have a low amount of entrants, would people rather do a 2 shorter races or keep the length as it is?
My vote is keep the length. For me, I like a length long enough to force us not to be able to go full on attack mode without possibility of repercussions. While possible to do that in half an hour, it's far more possible double that time frame because of fatigue, zoning out, etc etc...whatever. .....and riding with a flatspotted tire or two for half an hour is a good 'learning' experience.
But, I'm in for whatever others decide.
TC and ABS always seemed to hinder me, more than help me. (I wonder if AMS has the same "penalty" system as rF with TC, mainly?)
Im still not able to connect to server, so I think Ill have to skip this one, even I thought it could be doable.. Ill keep trying, but at the moment Im not finding the solution.
I cannot see the server in the list either. But, I entered the server address manually and I can click the little + icon and it's already stored in there.
The "join timed out" message is often associated with a wrong password. Rather than a message saying the password is incorrect, that message will often come up. So, as dumb as it sounds, you are sure you are putting in the password correctly, right? Not sure why everything would be working in the mod and offline....and for others to get on the server. It's got to be something really simple, surely...
When I enter the "multyplayer" page, I have no servers of any kind, nothing.. When I enter IP address, our ISO server appears on the list. My guess is that it is visible and reachable.. however, when I enter the password, I get joint time out. With wrong password I get "bad password" message..
I dont know if there are any parameters which could be modified, but my Matchmarker adress line is empty (I dont know if that makes any difference).. I played a bit with connection type (LAN, modem, etc) and speeds, but nothing changes.
But, since Im using a pirate game, maybe it is the reason for not being able to connect, since, there are some other issues in game, for example, car class and logos are completely messed up..
So, if Raul is out, that leaves 6 of us. Are we going to do this race with only 6 participants? If not, I'm about to put in some practice elsewhere for some racing today. If so, I'll stick with this as I've committed to it and don't intend to jump around for no reason.
I was thinking: if there is going to be this number of drivers on next atempt of racing, maybe we should choose shorter track.. I mean, 7, or even 10 of us, on RA, well, after few laps it will be like Im all by myself.. its just a suggestion. And maybe we should do more shorter races too..
