    I have just given up on this game.
    Twice the game wouldnt start after a normal shutdown and without any error messages.
    I have both Raceroom, pCars2 and ACC running completely stable without problems.
    But with rF2 both times the 3 JSONs with Player, Multip and worst controller had suddenly no content inside.
    Which means that I had to start all over setting the damned game and my custom (SRW-S1) controller up again.
    What made me complete stop this joke of an install is that now it doesnt help to delete the 3x jsons and start all over - eventhough I did let the game download all the content again 1H+.
    Hehe never since my DOS game days I have had such an unstable game.

    So How do I complete get rid of this goofy game from my HD?
    NOTE: Steams uninstall doesnt do the trick - something is still left.:mad:

    Just delete the folder \Steam\SteamApps\common\rFactor 2\ after uninstall. Just beware that this gets rid of everything, including mods and personal settings.

    Thank you Stonec
    I had just figured that out - and was surprised how many GB was actually left after Steams socalled "uninstall".:rolleyes:
    To really get rid of the last leftovers I used a Registry tool and deleted all HKEYs with Rfactor 2 inside.

    Hehe so now I will use my gaming time on mainly Raceroom - but will follow close what will happen with the announced strange AMS Madnes clone:D

    EDIT: The only thing I will be missing from rF2 is the use of the MoteC telemetry.
    Using this gives a certain proff feeling to ones gaming experience;)

    Most uninstallers only remove what they installed themselves, so any addon downloads would probably be left alone. Anyway, sounds like you've worked that out now, so all good.
