    Would it be possible for someone to produce a video guide on youtube or similar? I've tried on numerous occasions with different outcomes and zero sucess... Frustrating as I don't think I'm doing anything wrong.

    I don't see how a video is more helpful than a text guide. Actually I think step by step in written form is much easier to follow, being able to glance over the whole process, double check what you just did, place the current step in context, etc.

    What you should do is either find threads describing your issue (possible, but difficult to be sure) or start a new thread in this section, detail exactly what you've done, and what's (not) happening. Then people more experienced with the process can better help you.

    Help!! I don't get it.

    I did the steps on the first post of this thread.

    Copy the serverkeys.bin to local pc
    Launch single player once
    copy Serverunlock.bin and unlock.bin back to server
    Run modmgr and it says Keys Loaded

    I launch the server without any issues

    But when I try to connect to it, it flashes for one second and doesn't load, here's a video. I got it to load a few times, but only once, then I'd need to reload the server and back to this problem.

    You can see here, sorry for the bad quality, I launch the game, connect to the server and everything is alright, I close the game, reconnect, and it fails...wtf?

    The top window is where the server is running, I'm connected with teamviewer

    In your game computer (I assume you have the server on another computer when you mentioned Teamviewer)
    go to the rFm folder ....\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Installed\rFm
    have you got a mas file for the event? And in that mas is there is a rfm and two dds files?
    It's hard for me to see but it looks like it always wants to download the mod file but that normally is downloaded to the client before joining the server.

    I noticed one thing I thought I would ask about even though it probably is no issue.
    The date of the SH Karting - Kartsim_10.mas.
    I would expect the file on the remote to be earlier than the local. Make the Race Event file with Mas2 and install it on the remote then it is downloaded to the local on joining the server.
    I realise it is the Date Modified and not Date Created but I was just curious.

    I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

    So, I followed the steps as shown in the first post from Christopher using the M2 Cup and the Nurburgring. Everything worked flawlessly. However, this morning I went to set up an event with the ISI Clio 2010 and the Nurburgring, and I get a "package not available" error again. I redid the steps in the first post again and created a new race event, but the issue still exists. Is there something special I need to do in order to use the Clio on this track?
