    I can't download the correct version of PFI, when I try to join the competition I get an incorrect link message when it tries to download the correct version.

    I get to step 5 and then once rf2 is open I get a download fail with error saying "check content URLs for validity". Looks like I can't play :(

    Edit: No it looks like it hadn't auto updated so I unsubscribed and re subscribed and now it has the latest version I should be good to go.

    I just wonder why the paid content doesn't auto update intermittently? I have had this problem on occasions with the GT3s as well.
    Sheesh, I just want to get in and have a drive, WHY IS THIS SO DIFFICULT??
    It will have to wait another day. :( slow internet means waiting 35 minutes to download a 262mb file.

    How long does it take for you to enter?
    I mean from you click join and steam opens and until you are on track.

    The download from server is not enabled, the PFI should be in store and be updated when it is released. Can you check if you have any vmods installed which is linked to the version of PFI you have?

    As mentioned above, the files are not shared from the server, i have not been able to reproduce the issue, but at least its something i will put forward, still i have not been able to reproduce any of these "not up-to-date" issues.
    Can you remember what versions you had? and did you have any vmod installed which was linked to them?

    I don't think I have anything linked to PFI except the Kart sim, I just checked my version of PFI and it's 1.01, but the hot lap is looking for 1.09.

    No vmods and as Quic Vic said mine was version 1.01, I unsubscribed from Kartsim, shut down steam, restarted steam and resubscribed to Kartsim and it updated the version to 1.09 and I have joined and posted a time. I have had to do the same thing with the GT3 pack on occasions as well.
    @Quic Vic if you follow the method above you should get the update and then be able to join the server and have a crack. ;)

    Ok, maybe because it's early in the morning, but where/how do I unsubscribe? In the store it just asks if I want to buy it, and it doesn't appear in the workshop.

    In steam you mouse over your name then select inventory, then click on the track icon and then select "view Workshop Item" this will take you to the workshop for the PFI track. Then you unsubscribe, close out of steam, wait a minute then re-open steam and go through all that again only this time re-subscribe. It will download the new version of the track. EASY :confused:
