    It might be that the plugin can't write in the directories. It would be strange to be honest, but it could happen.
    By default the plugin tries to write into your UserData folder, in rFactor2\player\UserData\Settings\DeltaBest. The directory will be created automatically if it doesn't exist. If the plugin can't write in that directory, it will continue to work, but won't save any best lap to disk.

    I don't think that is the problem. I and many others use the plugin regularly with the Steam version without trouble.

    Fixed it now. Thanks for letting me know.
    Seems that the forum migration to Studio-397.com made all the attachment links invalid.

    Please share with the other users how you fixed the issue.
    Was it the space character in the directory name?

    Well yes, I have a space in the path: "d:\Steam\SteamApps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\player\Settings\"
    But that "rFactor 2" in the path is the default folder Steam creates for the game, so I can assume all users have that space. Strange as it won't be easy to change that name I guess.

    In fact, that's what I have as well, as I run the Steam version of rF2, and it works OK for me. :-/

    So is there any way to debug that error? The plugin doesn't create that Deltabest folder at all.

    Edit:
    I remember earlier versions had problems with overwriting these laptimes but at least they were creating .lap files.

    Those bugs were fixed I think.
    Do you see the initial message when the plugin starts up? Can you write it here?

    OK, one thing I don't get then. When you say that the DeltaBest folder is not created, how do you know? Where are you looking for it?
    If you see the message "Best lap for this car/track" right after the start of a session, that means the plugin has loaded a valid .lap file, so the folder must exist.

    Well it only shows after making a lap in the session, hence 2 screenshots. I look for a Deltabest folder where you wrote: "rFactor2\player\UserData\Settings\DeltaBest"

    But finally I know something more. Do you use data.path file in your plugin? I have a full path there to fix some other plugins/tools. By default Steam install uses relative path (.\) and with that path your plugin works! But not anymore with a full path (d:\Steam\SteamApps\common\rFactor 2\). Can you confirm?

    Hi
    I switch from V19 to 23, but there isn't a 64bit *.dll in the download?
    With the only one *.dll in 64 Pluginfolder, the Plugin don't Show anything.

    The only dll in the zip file is the 64 bit one. There is no 32 bit dll anymore.
