    Hi,
    So it was no easy but I managed to set a server (without steamCMD), all was working and my friend was able to join on zandvoort with the ferrari gt3 only but when we tried on Algarve (from workshop) with several gt3 he wasn't able to join,(couldn't download content) he own everything and I was able to join. Did I miss something?! I saw in multiplayer json file some lines related to max mod file size, do I have to modify this file? Since he own all the content I put in the server he shouldn't have to download anything right?
    Thanks

    Is the RFMOD file inside your packages folder?

    Yes the RFMOD made from the tool is in my package folder, I also tried to send him the file for a manual install but didn't worked, maybe it is on his side we will do more test. If he owns the content he only needs to dl this small RFMOD file right?

    yes, your theory is right. If both of you have the same content and versions (no skinpacks) then yes, all he needs is the rfmod.

    He also have other versions of cars (eerc league one) so it is maybe the problem but it was working with the ferrari on zandvoort, we will do tests later to see if it is the track the problem.

    I get "Error to install Mod".
    So it seems as if your Server isn't configured properly, to let the Clients download the virtual Mod File (rfmod).

    I'm not sure about it, but "Mod" in that Error Message maybe can also mean one or more of the used Components.
    Do you use the same Cars for Zandvoort?
    If yes, please open the Server with that Track and i'll try again with that Combination.

    Forgot something

    recap
    1. Turn AUTODOWNLOADS=TRUE in the multiplayer. json
    2. put RFMOD and RFCMP's in the packages folder.
    3. no spaces or special charactors in the rfmod name. example
    this is a mod.rfmod = BAD
    this_is_a_mod.rfmod = GOOD

    Sorry, i've made a Failure.
    I don't owe the Ferrari GT3, only the GTE. :D
    Can you please open the Server again with Algarve and only the Aston GT3, to recheck if the Problem appears again?

    No worry! Give me 15-20min and I'll make a new mod with a name without space, might be why it was working on zondvoort. I just can't find the RFCMP mods files, are they in a steam workshop folder? I need them If I want people to be able to dl (free) missing content and I should copy RFCMP files in the packages folder?

    Yes, the rfcmp are in the ..\steamapps\workshop\content\365960 Subfolders and yes, put a copy into the Packages Folder.
    And yes, do what @Mangoletsi has written ;)

    Cool good to know, it was without rfcmp files in the packages folder, I now copy all files I need from workshop (nicely organised there!! lol) but my friend still can't join, so it must be on his side now! Thanks a lot

    You're welcome. :)
    And let your Friend check his installed Components, if they really are the same that you use, without any installed 3rd Party Updates or Skinpacks maybe.

    Thats what Im thinking, he has some stuff about eerc endurance race so it might be the problem, does he have to manually uninstallled any modded cars?

    I would suggest to tell him to move the Subfolders with Updates from the Cars or Tracks, if there are some, out of the Game Folder, that he can put them back later if he wants.
    I would not suggest to uninstall them in the Content Screen of the Game, because that probably will also uninstall the base Mod.
    I don't know if it's the same when they get uninstalled with the Mod Manager.
    Moving them out from and back into the Installed Subfolder, in my Opinion, is the most elegant Way to get rid of them and get them back if wanted, in an easy and quick Way.
