    Hi guys,
    I just made a dedicated Windows account for my son on the gaming PC and shared my games and contents with him using Family Sharing on Steam.
    Our rFactor2 installation is shared (on a dedicated disk) and to start the game I use the +profile="my_son_name" option so we can keep profiles separated.

    One weird thing I found is that when I played after my son, my HUD was reset.
    However, the most annoying thing is that every time we switch from an account to the other, rF2 reinstalls all content (or almost, I don't know, but it's more than 200 packages).
    Until we used the same Windows and Steam accounts on the PC the +profile="my_son_name" option worked fine, but now waiting about half an hour every time renders it unusable.

    Any ideas on how to fix that? Thanks!

    PS: I'd try not to duplicate the whole rFactor2 installation if not necessary because I'd have to buy an additional disk.
