Trouble Finding our rFactor server ?
« on: April 29, 2008, 07:32:53 pm »
IF you canot find our server in the list  try this

hit the + button above the list and enter 85.17.168.6 this should then show only our server's in your list

only problem i have found with this is IF you have actually missed the server name in the list rather than it not being there i doesn't always show up with the above way  so go back to list and look more carefully 

 i don't know why but for some reason not all server show in the list right away when you try and join they can take a number of refreshes  to get them to show so before giving up try this  ;) ;)

And the fact that you can't see who's in which servers or in the lobby.  thumbs down

easy to fix, open your multiplayer.ini and change this line (default is 400)
Concurrent Server Updates="1000" // servers in join list, should be less for modem users, more for broadband (game now automatically finds more if (3 * download_kbps) exceeds this number)

Looking at some thing when making the server think Nissan Man told me to, there is a line that says BuddyList allow you to know where your buddies r or something like that...

I change my rFactor shortcut to run F:\games\rFactor\rFactor.exe +connect 85.17.168.6:34299 +password "<password>"

I get the numbers from f:\games\rFactor\UserData\Seven Smiles\bookmarks.xml after managing to find the server in the lobby and joining, then pressing the "computer" icon and clicking "Bookmark server". The password bit is optional.

209.200.236.35 doesn't work for me.

there is another alternative...

Go in to rfactor\userdata\your name and open up
multiplayer.ini (txt file with a cog on it)

line 23 or so from the top says

Concurrent Server Updates="400"  change 400 to 1000 and save it.

close down and you will now have 1000 servers showing in rFactor instead of 400..

Never failed me.
