Whoops, disregard this post! Found the issue, I had the monitor plugged into the wrong GPU port. My cpu has 2 ports and I was accidentally using the intel port which is above the other port that my Nvidia graphics card is.
My bad, should have diagnosed it a bit more before posting here, all is good now
I wouldn't guarantee that it would work correctly, there's several hacks going on that are reading/writing to specific memory addresses in the game, so if for some reason the rfactor exe is different, then it might not work.
@RustyGears You can set up the canard wing while in the pits. Click on "garage", "general", and look for "front wing". Adjust the value up or down to your liking. There is no way to adjust the canard while you're driving the boat.
Merry Christmas! So, I now have a new computer. I installed rFactor and HydroMod and tested it out. The clock still doesn't work. I made sure to have DX9 setup in the Config, and I even ran the game as an administrator. Still nothing.
Did you read the rFactor 1.255 Join Timeout.pdf ? That should tell you how to fix the problem if it's a port-forwarding issue. It also says to read the FirewallGuide.pdf in the rFactor Support folder. It will guide you through setting the game up to race online.
If that's not the problem, are you using the right password for our server? If you keep putting in the wrong password, it will eventually give you the JTO message. The JTO message will also come up if you wait too long to put the password in.
You could also try re-starting the game. That sometimes fixes it.
If nothing helps, then try re-starting your router. The game may not like your IP address. Re-setting the router should give you a new address.
These are all the ideas I can think of to fix the problem. If these don't work, then I probably won't be able to help you.
