    Hi everybody, I'm trying to dynamically alter the SC speed once it's on track. I'm running this line:

    info.mSafetyCarSpeed=10;

    I know the parameter is expressed in m/s (that's roughly 36 Km/h). I also noticed you have to change it in every call to AccessTrackRules(), otherwise it's reset to RFM value. I'm displaying the value in the variable for debugging purposes, and it shows it's properly set, but SC keeps running at whatever speed has been set on RFM file.

    Has anybody tried this? Can you please help me?

    sometimes windows takes a copy of an ini file and uses the copy instead

    search you hard drive for info.mSafetyCarSpeed=10;

    see if there is another local copy - I had this problem trying to reverse a FFB direction

    Thanks for help, I guess this is one of those bugs it's been around since rfactor days.

    I'm not sure if you're being facetious, but rFactor didn't offer any race-time ('rules') support for plugins. rFactor2, as in many areas, is about 80% of the way there but doesn't quite finish the job.

    Yes, I was joking, it was a way to say this game has bugs that have been there for years, and yes, that feeling of unfinished product is always there.
