    Hello peeps,

    rf2 info on any level seems to be scattered around pages/threads/posts here and on the internet and too often buried away in shady corners that can be easily overlooked. The same questions/problems/fixes over and over again. much Confucius!

    Plus one of my conclusions in this thread was that whining about it, or getting frustrated, was just not good enough.

    We started creating an rf2 wiki for our league but it soon became bigger then that and it is now much more aimed at the entire rf2 community.

    Go have a look


    Info in the wiki or about rf2 in general is likely to change regularly, so it needs updating and some items might not be 100% correct or clear. And since its a wiki we do welcome in guest editors to help out on topics and items.

    Or just post your comments/corrections/wishes in this thread. at the minimum they will be added to the editor-todo-list but hopefully implemented asap.


    I hope its helpful.


    Special Thanks to Noel Hibbard for helping out and of course everyone whom posted info that we could use in the wiki :)

    Very nice.

    Would you be interested in adding a section to do with a thread i made about optimising ffb for rf2? It's at risk of one day getting hidden away into the old pages from new comers to rf2 one day. I can consolidate it better for a dedicated wiki section if your interested?

    Cheers.

    Very interested. A FFB article is in our todo list but so far I only have one thread, yours:
    http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.p...s-in-rFactor-2-The-key-to-being-in-the-Zone-D

    And since I personally don't fiddle much with ffb I lack info onnit. info like yours, plugins, workarounds, hardware info, etc. as complete as possible.

    I'd be delighted if you would want to help out in any way R1pper :)

    Great work looks fab, ideally this thread needs to be stickied otherwise it will eventually fall down the pages too!

    Because of the formatting, its just forum threads and that kinda sucks.
    Plus because of outdated threads from other users, can't edit them and requesting mod's to edit don't work either.
    and hardly anyone knows about the isi wiki as people just bookmark rf2-main forum. so its out of focus.
    plus it doesn't get used much.
    and we started for our own league initially, imagine the amount of single threads in the isi wiki lol :)

    imo the isi wiki would function much better as in the rf1 forum where Tim created a FAQ forum, much more clear.

    Does anyone know if there are more custom language files avail?

    So far I've found Dutch and we already got English/French/Italian/German.
    is there anything else?
    I tried browsing the language-forums here but erm...I don't know what they are saying :p

    And I would love to get as much sites listed as possible whom offer content like drivingitalia etc.
    the more the better I reckon. please post them up if they are not already listed here:

    I've added a changelog to the top of the wiki marking changes that where added so you can keep up to date.
