    Mine only works like that if I had it selected before I removed the file. If I had another series selected before I removed the file then it doesn't work. Similarly if I change the series away from "All Tracks & Cars" then I can't go back to it.

    Should just add in both cases the "All Tracks & Cars" 'button' does still appear at top of the screen and highlights when I click it but the large icon (circular rF2 with a ring of different cars around its edge) does not appear and is replaced by the default rF2 'fallback' icon (rF2 logo on a lo-res background) and "All Tracks & Cars" functionality is lost.

    I just deleted an All Cars mod I downloaded one time while truing to get that stuff to work.

    Might also be that I just miss a piece of content. Because how I understand it you need to have all the cars and tracks for that option to appear?

    No, the "All Tracks & Cars" option is (and always has been) part of the 'full' build installation it doesn't require any further action from you.

    Interestingly ISI seems to have removed the "All Tracks & Cars" option from the list in mod manager certainly in last couple of builds as I recall, perhaps to stop people deleting it in error one assumes lol.

    Well, I just had a closer look, that "all tracks & cars_10.mft" doesn´t seem to be necessary at all with a fresh installation of build 146, not to have that option appear at the top of the UI anyway. I selected the F2 mod, exited rFactor 2 and the Launcher, then deleted the manifest file and started rFactor 2 again. It is still there and working.
    I then went and deleted "Installed\rFm\allcarstracks_10.mas", which is referrenced by "all tracks & cars_10.mft". Now the option is still there but it does not work anymore.

    If I understood you correctly, O11, you cannot even see that option, which is a different problem. So to make sure you have a prisinte installation, you should do a completely fresh installation with deletion of all leftover files as I suggested earlier.

    And the "All Tracks & Cars" does not require you to have all content available installed. It is there to give you access to all the content you have installed.

    Cheers,
    Marcus

    I will try a new install again then. And also remove all the files I can find.

    Thanks for the tips, guys.

    Yep, a friend of mine got a refund straight away because he was having trouble with the installation procedure. He simply couldn't be bothered with it.

    His loss I suppose but I completely sympathise with any new players that feel this way.

    This week whenever I felt like driving something I've started up the AC tech demo.

    LOL tried to update to 198 from 107.
    FAIL
    Never seen a game/sim that was so hard to get along with.
    It's like it really doesn't want you to use it.
