    Just to understand you right, in the Launchers Purchase-Tab-->rFactor 2 Store/Purchase was no button with the Lifetime option available?
    Or was it greyed out or something else?

    You can do all of this as well with just one license. Oh well, I rest my case.

    From what I've read you can semi-periodically find deals for existing members to renew for $49 a year and especially around black Friday, you can get that as well as 25% off iRacing credits. Their pricing model and their behavior when they were F1rst keep me away. I understand you can regain the "investment" if you put your time into series and even make money (in cases to the tune of dozens of thousands) off it.

    It is a gross mistake to generalize everyone under iRacing's subscription pricing model and make all other variants derivative or relative off it, but then again that nears fanboy argument so all sensibility has been long thrown off the ship.

    Please explain how you can do that without getting banned from here.

    You can't run a single licence on 2 PCs at the same time. wtf ?


    Whether they are offline or online you can only run one instance a licence, you can store 2 or more credentials
    but you can't use them together, what ! ?


    OMG you guys are funny bag me, tell me I can't buy 2 licences , now you tell me I don't even need them !@!@ lmao

    If you read my first post few pages ago, I wrote I tested this on my laptop and main PC and it worked (being online on 2 computers). rF2 isn't Steam where there is some magic code that checks if you are online on PC A and somehow logs you out from PC A when starting the game on PC B. It's actally complicated to code such system, I doubt rF2 will ever have such feature thankfully.

    That probably breaks the EULA agreement ??? It has always been my understanding that we can install rF2 on as many devices as we like, but can only have 1 device active at any one time. This is why we are asking about multiple licences with or without multiple email addresses.

    Nope, from quick read I can experiment with my account on as many computers as I wish, as long I don't forward it to other person.

    You shall never use another user’s account or allow another user to use your account. You will immediately notify ISI in writing of any unauthorized use of your account, or other account related security breach of which you are aware.

    It's not that way it should work, no need to log out PC A if PC B ask for login: PC B should refuse to log if PC A is already logged. Far easiest to code, and if rF2 have effectively the kind of breach you describe (PC A and PC B logged at the same time same user), I guess it will be fixed really quickly thanks to your post ;)

    I have never paid more than half price for annual subscription since year 2 of iRacing. You just have to be willing to commit in advance, like Black Friday, etc., as mentioned above. You don't pay until the actual anniversary date, so that is a no-brainer to me.

    I actually nearly vomited yesterday when I realized how much I have spent in total on content in iRacing in only 15 months... I really have to learn how to enjoy that sim, to at least get something in return lol! :D

    Right now I'd much rather have that cash to spend on a new wheel and pedal set, seeing how I am kinda put out of the sim racing business till I get that sorted out...

    Way out of line mate. Way way out of line.

    First of all, you don't know anything about me or my kids so just zip that lip.

    Secondly, I am the one responsible for my kids, not you. I get to decide what is appropriate, not you. I am the one with ALL the facts in regard to myself & them, not you.

    Don't even fall for it man, just hit the ignore button. Pretty sure we won't be the only ones. ;)

    But one question has to be allowed i guess.
    Where is the problem to create a new email-account for each kid, and keep the passwords at your side?
    So you can buy 3 licenses and still be the only one who gets the email until you give the passwords to your kids.

    Well, that isn't an issue really, I have multiple email accounts that I use. But my Paypal account is linked to just 1 of them, and buying a licence for RF2 goes through that Paypal account and email address. It's my understanding that limits the licencing system to just one email address. I hope Tim posts a clarification here.

    In my eyes it shouldn't be a problem to buy a few licenses for different email-accounts, with the same paypal-account (i don't know how PayPal works, i don't use it).
    If so, ISI would limit their selling-options a lot, what wouldn't be very business-minded. ;)

    Now Post #66 and #67 are spinning me into the armco again. hehehe

    I agree #66


    I would cease all talk about running online while a lappy runs offline, leave that to pirate bay, hey. :)

    I do not understand this aversion to email but I do understand why one email one licence.

    When Tim said you can buy as many copies as you want I pretty sure he did not mean to sit and look at or give away to friends, if you email him he can work something out surely.


    Big hole is using a instant Master Card , buy anything digital online with any name, no paypal and any email you like.

    That is only reason my realname in RF2 is the same, DurgeDriven.

    Like I said I am not using a credit and there was no criminal intent, so there is no law against it whether ISI like it or not. Sorry but its fact.


    When you declare it is your real name you do because you can't use anything else, your Credit Cards, Bank deposits, PayPal and all your personal info is linked.

    When you use a instant Master Card and put cash in it at a supermarket nothing is.


    As long as you never put same with the same Machine ID you could run and buy 100 rF2's that way.

    It is not like you could go out and sell them, what would they do when validations ran out ? loool

    You are wrong, it doesn't break EULA to run it the way I described (assuming only one person), because it is not mentioned in EULA, simple.

    This is not how Steam or Origin works. The game must always let you log in, regardless if you are running something on another PC. Steam and Origin will simply log you out and close session from other PC when logging in on new one. Regardless of how this is done, it's a much more difficult implementation than current one, there is no "quick fix".
