it IS rather out of date. I'll get on it...
I have updated the first post to reflect the changes made by S397 in regard to managing DLC.
Hopefully that will answer questions about where to go now that DLC items give you an error message if you attempt to manage them from your inventory.
even if you go through proprieties and Workshop it says hidden
Yeah, you can't view them anymore. The purpose of this thread is when you have an issue with the DLC and you need to unsubscribe from them - you do that from that workshop menu. Clicking the item will just take you to the same 'hidden' page.
what if you want to subscribe to it again
THAT? I do not know. I was originally going to write both unsub and resubscribe, but since I haven't done that, I, for once! Self edited myself. We'll have to try that soon.
DLC auto subscribes. You can't permanently unsubscribe from it.
I purchased the Endurance pack on Nov. 25th 2021 and I'm missing two cars, Ferrari 488 GTE and the Ligier JS P320 LMP3.
I have the same issue and tried the fixes described in this thread, but nothing worked.
When trying to join a server I get:
The first post solution doesn't work, because in Steam workshop list I have are no paid DLC to unsubscribe from. When I got to Steam login name -> Inventory I see my bought DLC, but when I try to click "View Workshop Item" I get the:
"The item is either marked as hidden or you do not have permission to view it."
Good thing is I can still play using DLC content.
How can I unsub from DLC (and re-sub after that)?
I've also removed all mods that might block DLC update.
Steam changed about 2 weeks ago and no longer shows DLC in the properties. It's a pain but you can search for each car in the workshop folder and delete the car's folder there, which will uninstall it next time you run the game. Verifying rF2 files in steam will redownload it, and rF2 will install it on the next start.
Thanks, I will try it.
By worksop folder you mean :
I deleted one car there and verification of file integrity detected 1 file so I guess it may work.
I noticed that in my Packages folder I have files (I assume downloaded when trying to connect to a rf2 server) for the problematic cars:
No, that's where rF2 (un)installs them to/from.
The workshop folder is here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\365960
Each car will be in one of the numbered folders. Searching the whole folder by name usually works. As I said, it's a pain.
Ok , will try it tomorrow.
Unfortunately it didn't help. When trying to join a server:
But it's interesting the server wants to install previous version (2.55) and I have 2.60 and 2.61. So I guess I have up to date content and just can't install older version?
But again when I go to my Steam Inventory all bought DLC are there, but when I click "View Workshop Item" I still get:
I will try once again with deleting whole folders instead of car's files.
You can't view the DLC workshop items. That was a deliberate change some months ago.
At the moment you can't get to them via the rF2 properties either, because of a recent steam change. I know Marcel is in touch with them and will be trying to work something out.
The point of this thread is reinstalling DLC when it has an issue. Your specific problem is probably something else (perhaps skins or upgrades linked to an older DLC version) and you should have your own thread for that.
OK, thanks for the explanation.
Regarding my problem - I already uninstalled/deleted all mods that may interfere, except All Cars and Tracks. Where can I find skins or upgrades?
I will try with different server. It looks like the one that I try to join, requires older versions of the cars, which for some reason no longer can be downloaded.
