I'm easy, any of those sound good.

Apart from the VLN mod, I'm not going to download all the cars I already have in different mods in one new very big lump.




PS. Which version of rFactor. v1.250 or v1.255 ?

I ran rFactor the other day after a long break, and it had lost it's activation key! Got it running in the end though but I suspect my "free" reactivations count is near the limit.

Although I won't be able to make every race, I'm up for this.

  1. Gallardo
  2. Anything not F1-esque.
  3. Otherwise I don't mind.

All activations are free, you were only given a few to try and combat hacked copies and updated game engines.

From the rFactor.net site.

Reactivating rFactor on Your Computer

In the event of a license loss, a change in your computer's configuration, or if you wish to install the software on additional computers, you will have to RENEW your license by providing the ACTIVATION CODE: aaaa0a0aaaa00a0000a0aa00000a00a0.

Once you have this, use the ACTIVATION code by following the Already Paid link at the lower right of the first purchase screen.

You should have a confirmation that was emailed to you from Trymedia. Your Order Number (IMAxxxxxxx) is also in this email. If you do not have this email, please visit http://csc.trymedia.com/csc/start/cu...ace/index.h... to obtain a new one.

If you run out of renews, you can request additional ones at this same customer service site or email you request along with your Order number to sales@rFactor.net.

I find it quicker to get new activations by emailing Gjon at ISI through, purchase at rfactor.net along with your original order number.

15 Minutes last series, but I thought it was a bit short, so how about 20 ?

Oh boo, I would have been up for this... Unfortunately, I've just started a season in Gentlefoot's LFS league, which races between 8 and 10pm on sundays, so that kind of rules me out frown

I would agree on the previous races being on the short side. 20 sounds good to me. How about, as an idea, a one off longer endurance style race in the mix somewhere? Just a suggestion.

Not too bothered really - I'm probably going to miss a few races due to travelling anyway. I'll let everyone else decide.
