    Thank you for this new build.

    At first my framerate was exactly the same, but then I remembered to delete everything from the "Userdata\Log\CBash\" folder and now I have some nice framerate improvements. Around 10fps on Silverstone, but almost 30fps on Croft. :)

    I recommend everyone else do the same before judging framerate differences.

    Edit: Also, I used the Auto-updater to download this build and it seems to have worked fine. I was using the DNS fix launcher before I updated to build 298, so maybe the problems people are having is to do with something else entirely?

    If you try a few things before jumping the gun guys.
    Most people can get most things working in mostly different ways.
    One thing that usually always work if all else fail( and is my solution to every new build ) is to UNINSTALL core game, download the LITE INSTALLER, and install again. Your DATA folder is left intact and you can start racing again after about 15-30 minutes depending on DL speed of the new installer and speed of you mouse clicks.

    Autoupdate is nice, but can be buggered. Happens in many games. The testers have tested, you can be sure the game will work :)
    Just remove and install :)

    Have fun.

    For those having problems with the new launcher. Try this. First close the launcher (important) then delete:
    Code:
    \AppData\Roaming\.rFactor\rFactor.credentials
    Then restart the launcher and the renter your login info.

    It can't have replaced the launcher when you installed. Make sure the exe is actually replaced. If you mean "new launcher" as the temporary one, that's not the one to be using...

    ok Tim, add me to the list of people now that cannot run the game. Used auto updater, stopped working, used the content build, crashes the same way. That' is why I asked the question. Now I can't get it to run either. Now what do I do lol, too many questions ?

    I deleted the core folder + the launcher in the rfactor 2 folder and installed the LiteBuild. In the rfactor 2 folder the update created a new launcher. I tried to start the game with it, but it didn´t work.

    Edit: Noel´s suggestion didn´t fix the problem on my end.

    The post above yours. Make sure the launcher is actually replaced. Or, if you did anything with your credentials with the last launcher, you might have to do them again, as the fix became different when that was done. See Noel's post also above.

    I'm sure if you beta test another 70,000 builds... you'll get it right.

    I did autoupdate, I re-installed, I deleted my credentials, still doesn't work. If I press verify in autoupdater I got a lot of files that aint verified.

    I didn't do a complete re-install, that is my last option I can try, with manually deleting every file I can find of rfactor2. And than re-install everything.

    I have helped 2 of my friends with this now. Both times it had to do with something in the DATA folder.
    I have yet to figure out what.
    1.uninstall core game
    2.MOVE you data folder to another location(desktop or something)
    3, install core and data folder to its default locations.
    4. try starting the game now with NO components installed.

    Now you can try and find the files that cause errors in the old data folder, or install components again.
    If it has not been figured out by tomorrow I will try and help more, but night time now.

    Can you try deleting your activation data entirely and reactivating? I think we have a blend of issues based on a blend of ways people tried to fix the DNS issue for themselves in the last build.

    I am going to try it. Will post the result here.

    Edit: Reactivation via launcher didn´t help. When I try to start the single player my computer is loading something (symbol at the mouse cursor). It seems like he is unable to access a mandatory data.
