rFactor Tips and Tricks

Online Dirt Racing is not responsible for any changes you decide to make to your rFactor files. If you are uncomfortable finding/altering files within your computer, then don't do it. These are not requirements to race. Sorry for the disclaimer, I know they are lame.

PLAYER.PLR

To find your playername.plr, navigate to your \Program Files\rFactor\UserData\playername\ folder. Open your playername.plr with notepad, or similar text editor (I prefer notepad++). After you've made changes to this file, close it and select 'Save As' the current file name.



MULTIPLAYER.INI

To find your multiplayer.ini, navigate to your \Program Files\rFactor\UserData\playername\ folder. Open your multiplayer.ini with notepad, or similar text editor (I prefer notepad++). After you've made changes to this file, close it and select 'Save As' the current file name.



OTHER STUFF

If you want to avoid using Matchmaker to 'refresh and find' our race server, you can create a 2nd rFactor desktop shortcut (or Quickstart icon) that will take you directly to our race server. You will only need to verify your car, and click 'Join Server' after you double-click your desktop shortcut. No fuss.


And that's it, you've just created a direct IP connect desktop icon in rFactor. Now, when you want to join the OLDR server, simply double-click on your new icon and click 'Join Server' when prompted.
