    In order to export from 3dSimed you have the tutorial in this thread.

    AIW needs to be created with rf2 DevMod. There is some guide to do this but I can't remember where. I have never created an AIW that way. I only use BTB that creates AIW since it directly exports to rF1. RTB is not doing it yet that I know.
    As you suggest, RTB is quite incomplete for the moment. I would suggest to buy BTB instead.

    Thanks everyone for the effort but my idea was if i could easily export from Rtb to rfactor 2 but it looks like is a lot more than i expected or more than i can handle.
    Rtb is not for me just yet . I appreciate all your answers and effort.

    RTB is not a finished and really usable product. It still doesn't even have a save as function in order to make backups. It doesn't have any type of support. Forget about it. BTB is a much more compete option from the same author who decided to drop support to it in order to get new revenues from this RTB.

    Check xsectors to be correctly setup in the scene.
    Check AIW sector distances in the heading.
    Check AIW wpscore to change in the waypoints where sectors change.

    Where do i put the xfinish?
    I dont know about AIW wpscore.
    Advice please.

    Xsector1 should be hit prior to xsector2.
    Xfinish should be in the finish line. Beware xpitin xpitout not crossing the main track.
    Distances are approximate if I am not wrong.
    For hillclimb you might need special xfinish with double wall one in the start and one in the Finish line. However, I am not sure about this since I have only made closed circuits.

    Can't promise anything but pm with a link to your project and I might have time to take a look at it on the weekend.

    Isn't this the trick to make the timing gates working for a hillclimb track? I ask because i'm working on a hillclimb track too.

    I figure it out (short off)
    The first time the timming works ok but the next run ,
    i get black flag because for some reason so time wont work
    so , everytime i want the time to work , the track needs to be reloaded.
    I guess that turning flags off would avoid the reload everytime.

    in order for it to work , the length or two cars
    must be given in between gates.


    is like in rFactor 1 rally tracks but i added the xpitin and
    xpitout gates too.

    Instance=xpitin
    {
    Render=False
    MeshFile=xpitin.gmt CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    Response=VEHICLE,PITSTOP
    }
    Instance=xpitout
    {
    Render=False
    MeshFile=xpitout.gmt CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    Response=VEHICLE,PITSTOP
    }

    Instance=xsector1
    {
    Render=False Change=False
    MeshFile=xsector1.GMT CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    MeshFile=xsector1001.GMT CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    Response=VEHICLE,TIMING
    Response=VEHICLE,SECTOR
    }
    Instance=xsector2
    {
    Render=False Change=False
    MeshFile=xsector2.GMT CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    MeshFile=xsector2002.GMT CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    Response=VEHICLE,TIMING
    Response=VEHICLE,SECTOR
    }


    Instance=xfinish
    {
    Render=False Change=False
    MeshFile=xfinish.GMT CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    MeshFile=xfinish1001.GMT CollTarget=True HATTarget=False
    Response=VEHICLE,TIMING
    Response=VEHICLE,SECTOR
    }

    And also pit lane corridors have to be minimized to minimum possible
    and i mean both red and green .
    Example normal corridor ---------------0----------------
    Have to be set like this --0--
    with minimum posible.

    Now...
    Bik movies....
    Ive got a track with a tv screen that plays a video bik. ( I've checked and the video is in the maps folder).
    In 3dsimed the tvscreen seem ok and ponting to the bik file and set animation to movie but shows in pink like is missing texture.
    Does rf2 allow bik videos on tracks?
    Any ideas??

    rF1 did but rF2 doesn't. You can have tv screen show the drivers view or you could use texture animation.
