If you are using r2la in DEDI mode there will be no stints. Or, if you not using DEDI mode, then r2la did not find your name and that why you have no stints. With what sim are you using r2la? 1. For rF2, r2la finds your user name automatically when you enter path in first field ("Path to your rFactor2 directory or to directory with rF1 logs") when you first start r2la. 2. If you use r2la with rF1 or Automobilista you have to enter you name in first start form, in field called "If you use r2la with rFactor1 or Automobilista enter your ingame name here". Make sure you not checking "DEDI mode" button in start form for stints to work. They can not be completely wrong. Just in a case when r2la does not know your name or you didn't set lap time in session, then r2la shows car Category for 1st driver in session. Game server is responsible for creating log files. Not sure why this specific problem might happen (server hangs?) I don't think you have to exit before server restarts. This is some server bug or specifics, I don't think I can help with that. Yes, non standard symbols in xml are not supported by r2la and will be ignored. That's a technical issue with encodings. I recommend for users and moders to not use non Latin symbols in their names or mod names.
