    i cant complete competition sign up , i got an error text telling me than upgraded car or tracks cause this ,,,

    so i uninstall the game , and i unsuscribe all workshop items , and remove all rfactor2 files from steam common,,, and use ccleaner to clean registry base ,,, and install a new time game

    and its same ,, also when i look all car and tracks i dont saw all the buyed content ,,,

    and at this time i am a bit tired , i bought 65€ into beta version 2012, , +more than 50 € dlc ,,, and never works well , and ask me 8€ for a car 10 for a track but not shows me if the needed content is present,,,, we are far away from rfactor1 communauty meanings and expectations about rf2.

    and i am a bit curious about what i got for my 65€ life online access :) online access is not free for all ?
    actually the game cost is 3.90€ on instant game .

    Online access was just that. A Guarantee by ISI that there would be servers you could access. ISI was paying for servers to ensure online racing back when rF2 first debuted and today there are dozens if not hundreds of servers available. NOTHING ELSE was implied by that sale to you. ISI no longer owns rFactor2. The Competition System is not tied to that promise, even if ISI still owned rF2. However, the Competition System has had several join problems since the last update. Because August is often a near universal vacation month in Europe, I don't expect a quick repair. Usually the problems occur from conflicts between what the CS expects to be installed on your system and 3rd party mods. While several of the series in the Competition System do require tracks & cars that are require purchase, they always have a completely free series as well. I should note that paying for a car or track has nothing to do with online access.
    You purchased something in 2012 for 65€. You have gotten dozens of improvements in graphics, sound, physics and probably another dozen free cars plus free tracks like Zandvoort, Portland etc that have cost you nothing. So for 6.5€ per year you have gotten your Online ACCESS. rF2 still is plagued by a myriad of broken features, especially for offline users, but the pace of progress has picked up since S397 was purchased by MotorSport Games.

    it does work, if you are properly configuring rF2. AND you can use ANY of it online, there is an entire list of multiplayer servers for dozens of different cars and tracks. THAT is the online access you paid for(again, to a company that no longer owns rF2. The current owners of rF2 are under no obligation to honor any part of ISI's original price plan). However, getting your content to match the Competition System is apparently what you are trying to accomplish. When you register for a series, the Competition System checks your inventory to verify your cars & tracks match the list of cars & tracks in the series. If you have a mod that conflicts with the Competition System, then you will often have problems signing up for a series.
    If you are getting an error message when you try and use the Competition System, please post a screenshot of the error.

    Which content specifically can't you see? You could be subscribed to an event that is blocking the DLC from working correctly, a trace file may help. It could also be as simple as expecting a different name, as silly as that sounds.

    Did you run some online events at either Brands Hatch or Donington? There is a mod or Competition System event that is blocking your further particiaption. It looks like you joined something when the cars/track were first released. All have been updated and you have the newest versions but there is a CS or mod that want to use the original 1.00 versions of the tracks

    Reinstall the game is not usefull in your case.
    The "unknownbase cmp" problem is known.
    The series or mods that you are subscribed at, are going to be there until you unbubscribe of them.
    Take a look to your subscriptions in the workshop and unsub of all the mods (races, championships, events, etc).
    Furthermore, if you are subscribed to an upate of any car or track, this can be blocking the update of the content.
    Good luck

    If you have content issues you should start a thread if you want help. Digging up an old thread and saying you have "similar" issues isn't very illuminating.

    Yes? However today, what?

    just me being grumpy. Other forums have users bemoaning problems from years ago and I may be getting tired of the same 'ol same 'ol.

    it is not an old thread ,,,, its an unsolved one ,,, also this is very strange to look at this way to resolve a commercial problem ,, a forum with open threads to everyone ,,, when answering to a customer ...

    for moment i am really tired about the unsignificative reaction and advices i found here

    Thus my grumpiness @Lazza, folks who complain about free advice from knowledgeable users who have a history of solving problems(and I'm not including myself in that statement )

    @Raisi Stephane

    Just been reading this thread for the first time.

    From what you have posted, I suspect you have been on the competition system and raced. unfortunately after being on the competition system, you can't remove the rfmod the conventional way via workshop or modmgr.exe.

    You need to open steam, and click on library at the top.
    Find rfactor2 in the left column, right mouse click and select properties.
    In this new window, click on WORKSHOP.
    In this list, remove any mod/series or skinpack.

    Once done, in the same window click on LOCAL FILES and do a INTEGRITY CHECK which will check base game files, and then validate and repair all your paid dlc.
