    Hey guys,
    since the update to build 1112 my friends and me can't join our server anymore.
    Normally we host our server on our local pc with the buildin server-manager.
    But since the update we can't even find the server in the serverlist.

    What do we have to change to be able, to play online again?

    Cheers.

    Well, if I start the rFactor2 Dedicated or the rFactor2 Dedicated UI from the common\rFactor 2\Bin32-folder, I get the message "no mods are installed" or its all white.
    And I have defnitly installed some mods.
    I also have a CustomPlugin.json file with the correct text.

    You need to create a shortcut to the 32bit exe file, and right mouse click and choose properties. add the following to the target line
    +path=..

    try again

    One last question (hopefully):
    Do I have to add this:
    +path=C:\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin32\rFactor2 Dedicated UI.exe
    ?

    Are you clicking on the new shortcut you made to the 32bit.exe, to start the server?

    Yeah, sure. I created a stortcut with this target:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin32\rFactor2 Dedicated.exe" +path=..
    after that, i launched steam and rfactor. Then I started the shortcut and tried to find my server. :/
