    Hi,

    a very annoying problem: game runs fine,

    then when i press "Esc" at the end of a session, everything freezes.On one occasion it crashed to desktop

    Has it ever happened to other people?

    thanks

    If you record replays try turning that off and see if that changes anything.
    Also, read the thread above yours, "How to create a trace file". It may help find out what is wrong.
    Your computer specs would be good to know.

    Search for realtimelogging in the player.json file, and set it to 0.

    Running any plugins? Try attaching your entire trace file here, it can sometimes help to see more details.

    I'm assuming you are driving offline? And I'm assuming you are using some sort of mod?

    There is at least one car with engine problems. When you are at the track, do all the cars leave the garage and drive?
    Drive solo to see if the esc crash still occurs.

    Hi,
    yes I am playing offline.
    And yes it's happening with various mods, cars and cars.
    Sometimes it works without any problem (I managed to finish one race without issues)

    but sometimes:
    a) it freezes when I press Esc
    b) it crashes back to desktop when I press Esc
    c) sometimes CTD when I press "start race- go on track" button from the garage menu.

    I have uploaded the trace file of me trying to start a TCR race in Castle Combe (it crashed back to desktop while trying to start the race, after clicking on "go" from the boxes-setting page)

    Well unfortunately, the trace file only shows problems during loading. Which there were a-lot of. The track has some shader errors, all the cars have that engine thing, I would suggest using just stock S397 cars and tracks for testing. If those work correctly, then the mod cars or track are the issue.

    Hi Dave, first of all many thanks for looking into it.

    Maybe that's because I uploaded the trace of the ctd while trying to start the race. Tomorrow I'll post a "freeze after esc" trace. The strange thing is, this TCR mod used to work before!

    And combos as strange. Tcr at Castle Combe crashes. Tcr at Donington runs well.
    Simtek GT3s freeze evertwhere if running in mixed classes as a custom event, but run well everywhere when choosing only one class in "all cars and tracks"
    Stick content like Indycars and US2000 are fine everywhere.

    So it seems certain mods suddenly started conflicting with some tracks..weird. and they're all tracks that run well with different cars and vice versa!

    Hi,

    here is a trace file of the "freeze after I hit esc"
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/0jli5wykm1h19nq/trace_2020_01_17_22_27_32-46.txt/file

    (now occasionaly the game crashes to desktop after the track finishes loading and all the cars are on the starting grid..but it wouldn't let me presso "start" to go on track.)

    I should add that issues began after a Windows update, and after I had to delete various content (cars, tracks) in order to save space. But I don'tthink I accidentally deleted some important thing...

    I am happy to offer some sort of reward for anyone able to solve this

    Do you use TrackIR?
    If you don't you might want to disable it in the Plugins/Difficulty page of the options.
    I noticed it wasn't "unloaded" like other unused plugins.

    Analyzing plugin "TrackIR_rF2_Plugin.dll"
    Successfully loaded plugin "TrackIR_rF2_Plugin.dll"
    Unloading plugin "KnockoutQualifying.dll" because it is disabled according to custom plugin settings
    Unloading plugin "StockCarRules.dll" because it is disabled according to custom plugin settings

    The last entries before the crash, I haven't seen them before
    slot.cpp 914: vi(0)

    HI,

    I disabled all plugins after that and issue persists.

    Guess I will need to reinstall ......
