    I discovered same, but it was just me being impatient. You have to wait until list is complete. Option for stop refresh would be useful. Cool

    i can understand this in something like rfactor with 900 servers but i think we can all twiddle our thumbs while it finds 30 servers .....

    sorry Jeff but maybe this may sound harsh but have you read the guide to install the update (1.3 final)
    you do not need to get a new install just that you needed to copy your license and driver info , in documents/Netkar pro then delete that folder , next back up your tracks and then use the uninstaller , if you reinstall to the same folder afterwards it will have kept all of your tracks and skins addons etc . start the game "DO NOT" create a new driver , colose the game now go back to your diocuments and paste the license and driver folder back into Netkar pro folder and all works , no need for any new installs

    It's excellent - and the KS2 is now a bit more than a handful.

    Cheers and cudos to Kunos and his team of testers.

    No worries on sounding harsh. lol. and no I don't read...lol. Yeah looks like netcar pro is done for me. No page to ask for new installs and I haveTWO licenses. I really don't know why netkar never auto updates. It is what it is now.

    Ks2 still ridicously fast, not only because of laptimes, also on the telemetry data. real gp2 08 car wich kunos told me its the ks2 based on, was around corners from 3,2 to 3,5 lateral g

    and it is still able to pull 4,6 g easily[img][/img]

    Since the autoupdate I have had 2 black screen crashs, I still hear the sound but only black screen, I know someone left and rejoined the server both times this happened, but i'm not sure if this is the reason scratch
    It was not on a RSR server. some other server with monza KS2

    lol (cool) the KS2 is now a lot faster I think (less aero effect at higher speed ?), I get max. 316 km/h now instead of max 300 km/h at Spa.
    but on the other hand it has definately less grip (downforce) in fast corners, so laptimes are a bit slower or equal to v1.3b despite more topspeed.
    so physics of the kS2 seem to be more real now (the unreal high downforce at high speed vanished, it's no Red Bull kind of car anymore Wink ), it's more challenging, because you can't handle it
    every moment the same now anymore like a programmed machine-driver, more fun now I guess for sure.

    rear wing is only 1-17 deg. setable and frontwing starts at 5 deg somehow.

    I think the FF is the same as before, maybe just a very little bit more light / less strenght, but that you can adjust a bit in the usual ways..
    .
    Like in all the other versions before you just need to set 'FF gain' to a value (0.500 or a bit less than that is good), where the grey FF bar in the overlay display is not ! at the limit always / just
    in extreme situations...and then afterwards set your desired strenght within the logitech profiler / in the settings of your wheeldriver -use the first and third strenght-bar in the logitech wheeldriver settings-
    (45 - 50 % strenght work for me for both of this bars under WinXP Pro) !

    FF is completely personal preference. everybody has different wheels, setups and driving styles - you cant tell someone which specific values to use. i have 150% in profiler for everything and use 1.6 for the KS2. it looks and sounds a lot, but its perfect for me. if you think its too much, lower it. if you think its not enough, increase it. dont forget this has a completely new re-coded tyre model and physics, so racing with an old setup is a bit daft, lets be honest Wink

    Feel free to use an ounce of common sense and email Kunos. Its what anyone else would do if things went wrong.

    Whats not user friendly about netKar? Start game > Online > Server > Done?

    Glad to see the update is finally here.
    Currently downloading it from the Radiator Springs BLISTERINGLY FAST 38kbps download mirror[/sarcasm]

    If its done before the end of reality i'll hopefully crash into catch some of you guys online.

    I'm having some problems with my pedals, when I join a server everything goes fine, then if I go out and re-join again when I use the gas pedal, the green bar moves, but there's no engine sound and the car doesn't move at all.
    Then I exit the sever go to options-controls, just say ok and all is fine again.

    I know, but regarding the specific value in the game in the car setup it might be the same thing for everyone. When you chose a higher setting than 0.500 than the grey bar is too much/often at the maximum and you
    don't feel any FF effects than anymore as long as the bar is always at the top, a too high FF gain set in the setup's view-tab kills all the effects, the grey bar needs to be flexible while driving at all time.

    stop being a cock. hes obviously having problems and talking to him like that isnt helping

    jeff - what you need to do is head into your documents folder, backup "drivers" and "licenses", then completely delete all NKPro folders, including the one in "my documents". install the new patch and overwrite your drivers / licenses folder in your documents with the ones you backed up.

    -the suspension values changed a lot at all cars.., the general fast rebound setting at the rear is much higher compared to the other values now and the other values are higher / stiffer too.
    so don't keep it only optical as it was usual before (mainly watching at the bars only) when setting up suspension things, you need to have a close look at the specific values at every bar now.
