Problem joining SJ GTL server
« on: November 21, 2006, 09:39:09 am »
Hi guys,

I tried to join a GTL server, to see how the online stuff works in GTL....tis all new to me this stuff.

I tried to join one of the 2 SJ GTL servers. Both were showing Imola. I could join one, but the other one said track not installed.
I tried another non SJ server later that was showing it had Hockenheim GP running and got the same error.

Any idea whats causing this?

Cheers
Sandy

If the server is running a track that you dont have installed it just gives you name of one that you do have instead.If you get me.So for example if it was Watkins Glen it might show to you as Imola or any track that you do have.Server 2 is on kyalami atm which you probably dont have.

Yes, you're right Mario.  I think, in those cicumstances, GTL shows the name of the track you last loaded.

If you look in the Server Status thread, Sandy, you'll see which track is on the server...  If it is on the SJ server then you will definately find it in the SJ downloads section.  :)
