You are probably wondering how you can join and race with us online. The following is all the necessary information that you need to know in order to join our league. Please if you have any questions whatsoever.
1) Buy/Download/install rfactor- If you need help getting it, please let us know on facebook
2)Go to the following link and download SimSync (XSTSR.zip)
3)Download and extract it to your desktop
4)Copy and paste the simsyncpro blue icon (SimSyncPro.exe) and the SimSyncPro.ini file to your main rfactor folder located in program files. It should look something like this:
5)Right click on blue sim sync pro icon and hit run as administrator. You will want to do this everytime you run sim sync to make sure all files install correctly. When you doubleclick the blue simsync pro icon it will ask you to update to the latest. I click no. After you open up the program you will see a bunch of options (series/tracks) with check boxes next to them. You can click on whatever series it is you want to download. Every series in sim sync, XSTSR runs.
Check "Xtreme Tracks by Perry" -Tracks made by our very own Perry Vance.
Check "Flash Tracks" -Tracks made by Doug "Flash" Forgue
Check "Non JCR Tracks" - Tracks from various track builders
Check "ALL JCR Tracks" - Tracks made by Jason C. Ray (JCR)
Those will get you all the tracks on our servers. Anytime you get a mismatch entering our server, it's recommended that you run sim sync to get the latest files and paint jobs for each mod and track.
After that you will hit start. It will take a minute or two and it will pair whats on our server versus what's in your rfactor install. You will then see a big white screen pop up with file names. Those are what you don't have in your rfactor folder. They will be downloaded for you. "Click Ok".
If this is your first time running sim sync, it's going to take a while. Sim Sync is awesome for installing files! It's a beautiful thing!
From there it's a matter of downloading Teamspeak 3 and connecting to our IP addresses.
