    Hello All,

    I currently run a dedicated server on my machine, and for the last few months it has run with no problems. However today after my daily server reboot, when members join the server most of them can no longer see any cars in the selection screen (including myself), and if those people whom cannot see a car hit RACE, it loads them onto the track with either a Clio Safety Car, or the rF2 Corvette Official Pace Car, both of which are NOT in the server normally.
    If by some chance of miracle someone DOES manage to see all cars in the selection screen, they are 110% fine and run with no issues, but anyone spectating them only sees them as the above cars.

    This is an issue that is completely blowing my mind thus far, and I haven't found much help for it anywhere else, so I am REALLY hoping you all can help me out here.

    TLDR - Server Rebooted, Cars no longer in selection screen, default places people in Clio or Corvette SC and then boots them promptly. How Fix.

    You have written that the server runs since a few months.
    Do you use the steam dedicated server?
    Is your rfactor 2 installation and the dedicated server on the latest build version, especially the steam dedicated server ?
    Create a new vmod and use that to run the server.
    Does that change something?

    @FreakVelocity

    Are you using the host button on the launcher, or have you installed the dedicated server using SteamCMD ?

    If you used SteamCMD, either your rfmod needs updating, or your server key .bin needs updating on the server.

    Just had the same problem with the GT3 Pack on the dedi server, I had to redo the serverkey.bin again as @Mangoletsi mentions.

    Alright...

    I have updated SteamCMD, and it was on the most current build.
    I have re-done the whole process for the serverkey.bin
    I have made an entirely new RFMOD.

    Nothing worked. I am at the same exact issue still.

    Have you checked if you have this text added to your dedi server shortcut ?
    +path=".."
    And check the path to Packages in ModManager (ModMgr.exe) is correct.

    That text is indeed added, and the path is correct.

    @FreakVelocity How many mods are installed in the server installation?
    It sounds a little bit like you have a conflict with 2 mods, that, for example, use the same menu entries for the cars or something like that.
    Maybe you remove all not needed vehicles from the server installation, to check if that changes something.
    It could also be your rfactor installation, with that you want to join the server, that has a mod conflict.

    @Bernd.

    The server is running....
    Silverstone
    S397 Endurance Pack.

    That is all.

    I have tested on an entirely fresh server install on another computer and have the same issue, so I am now leaning towards it being a client side issue.

    The server works wonders with old vanilla content. Ran a 370Z race just fine on the server, at this point it is ONLY the paid content not working.

    Ta, all looks good there, latest versions of cars and tracks and the keys loaded says that the unlock procedure done correctly....how did you install the cars, using steam cmd to download and then install or copy the vehicle/installed folder from local computer to server?

    Are spaces in the rfmod file an issue?

    Shouldn't be, they've worked with spaces and without in the past.

    If I'm honest, I don't recall exactly how they were installed, but looking in the server files, they all look like they're installed just the same as my normal rF2 install.

    The reason I asked is that there are some who have had issues with some GTE content not showing locally, and if those vehicles/installed folders were copied to the server then that could cause probs. I reckon @Lazza is onto something with the space thing....I know in the early days you couldn't have a space in the rfmod name...dunno if that's still the case today, perhaps create a new rfmod without any spaces and see.
