Anyone else having trouble with this track?
My game is not loading....
Works fine for me.
Have you downloaded the track from our race page or somewhere else? Does it work offline?
I downloaded it right here
It did not work offline either.
I'll try to re-install the game and see if it works
I have the same problem, offline and online. Loading bar don't start moving. Sometimes it's because msg box in the background (missing something) but I can't see anyone.
Tried delete folder, download again and extracted files here:
Looks like my folder, so the location seems not the problem. I only had this problem, when I placed the track in a wrong folder. Therefore I have no idea what this could cause, searched a bit on google and found a site that additional shader could cause such problems.
Probably you found that by yourself.
Thank you Philipp, I'm not using any extra shading options like sweetfx, just stock.
I'm not sure if this will fix the problem, but try DL & installing this file into the ..\STEAM\steamapps\common\Automobilista\GameData\Locations folder
Thank you Ken, I'll try that tonight.
Probably won't help but when I have a track that doesn't load, it's usually something about the graphic settings, wich needs to be increased or, in some rare scenarios, decreased.
In my Locations folder there are only two archives, terrain.tdf (13,3 kb) and commonmaps.mas (50,7 mb).
unfortunately it is not working at all, I have tried everything. But I figured out what's going wrong. This message is appearing here
I checked here and in fact this file does not exist in my download.
This file apparently existed in Game Stock Car and no longer exists in Automobilista
I'm downloading the GSC Version to see if I find this file that has to go to the GameData/Locations folder
I provided a DL link for this file in post #9 above.
It used to be the case that when a GSCE track was converted to AMS it needed the additional file commonmapsGSC.MAS in the /locations folder. I have it in mine which Is why I suggested trying it.
yes, I saw
but the tutorial I was seeing was to change an arch of the same lane.
but it did not work either
Unfortunately not or can not be present at this stage
But I'm already doing some laps with the BMW M3, so I'll see you all on the track
I tried the the mas file but that did not help, but with help of the msg box from Fabricio, I found I had a bunch of files in "bak" folder in ReizaCommon so I just move them back to the main folder. Not sure if I have move them there but I did reinstall AMS before the Mini series so it could be default.
And now the track loads ok
I have those files and others in my /ReizaCommon folder and in the bak folder. I do now remember this fix but had forgotten about it, so many thanks for finding the answer Jens.
Glad that Jens could join us for the final round. Although the total number of drivers is not that high, it seems we have still good fun and good races. Thanks every body. Even though this mini Mod made it sometimes really hard. I had my problems to get comfortable, but with every race more it got better. So in the end I will somehow miss them
To my race, well I bumped Ramon out of the front row with my last quali lap, which was a bit surprsing because I thought he will be closer to Csaba and I already gave up the hope to get a lap together. It Ain´t over til it´s over. My start was as good as Csabas but Ramon got a rocket start. I was on the outside into turn one and yielded because of two reasons. First I didn´t want to interfere the the championship battle and second I feared both could spun each other out. Did not happen but Paul passed me because of that.
I repassed him because he got the fast right at the end of the first sector wrong. But it was not over because he was still right behind me and I hit the sausage curb at the following chicace. Then this happened
Paul lost his car under braking (it is very tight to enter this turn side by side) and went rally cross. The drift looked amazing in the replay, I would give you 10/10 points @Paul Anstey
rf2 would probably give him a Stop and Go, so in this terms Automobilista seems better. He gave me the position back, which is enough. After that I could clear him step by step. I gained another place as Ramon spun arround, though luck.
In free air and more important with clear view
(The question is where is the apex?)
I was able to push, set the fastest lap and thought maybe I could pressure Csaba a bit. But not really he was fully under control, and I paid the price later in the race. I even went over the sausage curbs and nearly ended up in the wall.
So congrats again to Csaba for the race and champioship win. See you guys.
Congrats to all who raced this fantastic series, Ken for the job done and Csaba for the championship win.
I needed a victory here to have a chance to win the championship but when I saw the laptimes in LiveRacers I knew here it was going to be really hard if not impossible. Csaba was in another league and even Philipp was faster than me in one lap. So I changed my mentality and focused in training only race pace and consistency, wich (despite my incident in the race) was quite nice.
Given the previous races, I knew my strongest point is the last 15 minutes as it seems that I take better care of the tyres. So my race approach was do a super agressive start and take the second place, then try to lose about half a second per lap against Csaba and in the last 15 minutes push to recover.
The "rocket start" worked as expected but there was something I wasn't aware of... and this was Paul Anstey. He was today a man on a mission, and I couldn't relax even a second because he looked today super racy at the start.
And that led to my fatal error at first corner in lap 6. The Mini is quite unpredictable with fresh new tyres, this is the reason I don't like to push in the first 10 minutes, till the tyres go from green to yellow. And I was pushing like hell to mantain the gap to Paul when I spun and ended backwards in the grass.
All my hopes vanished and I knew championship was gone, in fifth and with huge gap to the next driver wich was Jens in 4th.
I did a couple of really bad laps here, as I lost my focus, but then I just drove to have some fun and yeah, it was quite nice fun the fights with both Jens and Paul, wheel to wheel action.
At the end 3rd in the race to seal the 2nd place in the championship, really nice for a midfield driver like me. My initial advantage with the Mini wasn't going to last and at the end Csaba was clearly faster than me and at least Philipp and Paul were both in the same pace. Sad to see the Mini end, but time now for the M3!
