I have also uploaded the rFactor Manual, a quick guide to rFactor commands and a Driver Swap guide.
Now, some quick tips:
1. If you canīt see the Atlas rFactor server in the list:
Open the Multiplayer.ini file located, in my case, at F:\Archivos de programa\rFactor\UserData\Arturo Pereira, find the line under the [MULTIPLAYER] section:
Concurrent Server Updates="400" // 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)
and change it to
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)
Save the file and try to login again. Perahps you may still need to refresh the racelist once or twice, but it should work.
2. To improve the driving of these cars, I think it is very important to be able to hear the tyres properly to see if they are skidding too much or if you are blocking them. To change the default sound settings for this specific topic, open your player PLR file with Notepad and change the original values of the following parameters to these ones:
Vehicle Scrubbing VolMult="0.0002000000"
Vehicle Scrubbing FreqGrip="-0.20000"
Vehicle Scrubbing FreqSpeed="0.00195"
Vehicle Skidding VolMult="0.0002220703"
Vehicle Skidding FreqGrip="-0.25000"
Vehicle Skidding FreqSpeed="0.00195"
Vehicle Roadnoise VolSpeed="32.00000"
Vehicle Roadnoise VolMult="0.0000050000"
Vehicle Roadnoise FreqMin="0.80000"
Vehicle Roadnoise FreqMult="0.00391"
The PLR file is located at the same folder of the Multiplayer.ini file mentioned before.
