    I heard (I don't remember where, and I'm not sure this is correct) that Rfactor 2 will be available, on the net, but also on box edition when it will be out.

    guys, people have asked this question about a billion times! ISI has not given any clues to ANYONE on when it's coming out. truthfully i dont even know if THEY know when it's coming out.

    I wouldn't really count on that too much anymore.
    In the last update they said they might include another historic track before release, and there was still quite a bit of work to be done on the AI and post FX stuff.
    Would be one of the best christmas presents ever though :D

    I'm just hoping they do away with the current activation system. Nothing like waiting for more activations while your teammates are doing the league race you couldn't start in because you couldn't activate it... (and yes, I know of the work arounds etc.)

    Whether that means selling this game via Steam (as well as other methods) is another thing, but once I've activated a game, that should be it. Even if I have to format and reinstall.

    Yeah Steam or Impulse would both be a great way for the activation to work. I say put the game on both.

    well, i hope it wont be only on steam, as i've already lost all simbin games from there(+ other games i've bought). my account ended up blocked over one gift game i've received, and steam support wasnt answering my questions over email, but they were saying that i have to contact person who sent me gift every time i've asked a specific question. So i dont have any trust in steam anymore. and i wont buy it over steam, thats for sure...

    rF1 way was good. you had 5 activation keys, and as soon as you "spent" your 5th you'd send email, so you dont have to wait for anything next time you reinstall ;)

    just good experience with steam.

    In rF1 just backup your trymedia folder and you do not need a second key unless you do major changes with your hardware.

    And that was the problem with rF1, so I would prefer Steam.

    How often are major changes @ your hardware?
    Allowing 5 reactivations is a good choice, you can request new reactivations before you have none left.
    Just some lazy guys which deny all recommendations and manuals have issues.

    Since rF1 release I had approximately 4-6 major changes, you only have to add a new hard disc and you have to reactivate.
    The point is Trymedia is very inconvenient ;)

    just contact ISI/trymedia when you have 1 reactivation left and not then you dont have reactivations left.

    Since I have rFactor (which is for 3,5-4 years), I have never received any information, how many reactivations have left.

    Every time I reactivate rFactor, and did that multiple times, (also many times requesting additional renewals, with success of course) I get "Reactivation Notice for Product rFactor" e-mail with that message:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THIS IS AN AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED MESSAGE. ***DO NOT REPLY***:

    Dear Customer,

    You have been granted a free reactivation (license renewal) for the following product:

    rFactor

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    ...but no info about how many still is available to use.

    Exactly. From a marketing viewpoint, pre-Christmas release means mucho sales, but post christmas release will mean people may be strapped for cash and it may take some time to get the sales going. I'm pretty sure ISI are aware of this, and will take whatever course is necessary to provide us with a great sim.

    Having said that....I'd love to have it for Christmas....LOL
