Really, now, this multiplayer is totally broken:

1. Half the time server doesn't appear in list until I exit and come back in, sometimes I have to do it multiple times

2. Having server control track does not work. It will work at first, but exiting out and coming back in (multiple tries) lets the user select any track

3. With these attributes set, when I join server (after multiple exits) and when I'm by myself on server, it appears that I can't even start the race

"allowEmptyJoin : true
controlGameSetup : true
sessionAttributes: {
"ServerControlsTrack" : 0,
"ServerControlsVehicle" : -1,

One would think, with all the folks working on PC, that they'd get things right. I mean, the way you have to setup these servers is the most cumbersome I've seen of any racing title.

But maybe I have something askew with these settings, that isn't allowing me to set up and start a race. It worked before; now it doesn't. Totally inconsistent mumble-jumble.

Whoever is steering this ship, needs some lessons in navigation.

Can you break down what Flags you are using?

Here's the flag thing and what they might mean, according to "flags_CALC".

FLAG 0/1
AI_ALLOWED 0
FORCE_IDENTICAL_VEHICLES 0
FORCE_IDENTICAL_VEHICLE_SETUP" 0
ALLOW_CUSTOM_VEHICLE_SETUP" 1
FORCE_REALISTIC_DRIVING_AIDS" 1
ABS_ALLOWED" 0
SC_ALLOWED" 0
TCS_ALLOWED" 0
FORCE_MANUAL" 1
ROLLING_STARTS" 0
FORCE_SAME_VEHICLE_CLASS" 1
FORCE_SAME_TRACK" 0
FORCE_TRACK_STYLE" 0
FORCE_HANDLING_STYLE" 0
FORCE_LOBBY_NAME" 1
FORCE_GAME_MODE" 1
FORCE_GAME_LENGTH_DESCRIPTION" 0
FILL_SESSION_WITH_AI" 1
MECHANICAL_FAILURES" 1
AUTO_START_ENGINE" 1

Flag to enter in Server 967960

The reason why the countdown doesn't begin when I select it online is, I suspect, because there is no practice or qualify laps, though I clearly have those set in the configuration. But it's possible that the flags or some other switch in the config over-rides those numbers.

Once in the server, I notice this,


217563


indicating that there are no other sessions besides the race. How can I fix that little discrepancy?
