Hi everybody.

Post by FCDean on 12/3/2012, 10:33 pm

Hi, My name is Dean,
I'm from Queensland and was put onto this site by a mate of mine Aus_Chrisrx.
I recently got myself a g27 as a xmas present from my boss and fixed/fixing my computer to play again. I used to use a gamepad and i raced in the bathurst fun league on Ausfactor.
Last night was my first race with the g27, no practice no setup (Raced as BzR5150, fixed that now though). I was still downloading/installing the track up until the last race with Chris on the phone talking me through it Razz

I have put some practice in on the wheel and tried different cars around Amaroo and got the Corolla and the M3 to the low 52's could break 51 in the bimmer if it all came together Rolling Eyes

Looking forward to Lakeside on sunday.

A few questions

1. I have downloaded the all addons package and yet im still getting a lot of White cars confused

2. When using teamspeak what mic do people use? I'm curious do people use headphones & the mic and play the race audio through the headset along with the teamspeak? I use an expensive wireless headset on my xbox and would consider trying to make it work but im not sure. Dont really want more cables hanging around and cant afford a good wireless setup right now.

3. I also downloaded the GID HUD but cant seem to get it to work. Any pointers?

Thanks
Dean.

Hi Dean and welcome to TTR

1. I am hoping one of the TCL guys will help you with this Very Happy
2. I just use a cheap microphone and use wireless headphones running both TS and the game through them. You just have to find a happy medium with the volume
3. Is the GID version 1.1.2? also have you got A) DirectX End-User Runtimes from Microsoft and B) Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) sometimes it takes a couple of installs to work.. I have a couple of rFactor installs where it won't work but that may be the mod.
It does work in TCL for me (the odd time I race TCL)

Let us know how you get on

Hi & Welcome

I use headphones to play race audio and TS at the same time I use a set of Logitech G35's but alot of guys I know use the Logitech H340 or H540 they are usually $20-$40 from JB and work quite well while using speakers to play in game audio Smile

Cheers Sean

Thanks for the reply guys.

well i bought myself a headset so i can get on teamspeak and i'll run the game sounds through them and just work out a volume that suits.

The GID dash just suddenly started working today, it has also crashed the game twice confused I'll see how long that lasts and if i'll keep it.

The major problem of the car skins not showing is annoying my no end. Luckily ive been practicing alone but come raceday i want to see colours.

Any help?

Cheers

Hey Dean Welcome

Ok with the addon pack you downloaded Once you extract the data there should be a folder called GameData and a few others. You Need to Copy these into your rfactor install and should fix the problem I can Jump On TS now and give you hand if you want

Ben

P.s Also thanks for the Pm with confusion with TS Address will get that one sorted out

Ben

Hi guys. I hope to be back racing soon. I've been busy with my apprenticeship and my son. He just turned 8 months old last week and i haven't even turned the computer on in all that time 

ChrisRX has been geeing me up once again to get back on posting videos and photos of old rx7s and celicas racing and it's made me miss the sunday night sessions.

If anyone could point me in the right direction to download any updates i might need that would be tops.
