    Hello Everybody,

    How do you host a game with the new UI? Also how do you make a new Mod with the UI? I cant seem to find the old MAS tool.

    Did you do a basic search in your rFactor 2 folder for it?

    Yes. I found the MAS Tool about half an hour after I posted the question. Searching thru the folder structure looking for something that used to be in the UI is not very intuitive. Have you found a way to host a MP game?

    and this, my friend, is what i pray for the competition system to fix.

    both the difficulty and cumbersomeness of hosting a race in rfactor 2 and the supidity of the user base.

    To host a MP game with new UI, go to bin64 folder, find rFactor2 Dedicated.exe, right click and send to desktop(shortcut). Go to desktop, right click on shortcut/properties, so on destiny add +path="..", apply. So you will be able to host a MP game. You have to open the game first

    I did that. But the problem is that when you launch the dedicated server, Steam detects that you playing and wont let you run the rfactor 2 client.
    Should i install Dedicated server via SteamCMD?

    Choosing the Old UI version did the trick for now.

    Thanks!

    just start the game with new ui first and then the server via shortcut.

    make sure you use different player profiles for server and client and change the web UI port to be different in each. This is what I have heard works.
