Disappointed to see that the Dedicated Server is only available for purchasers of the game. While you might think that statement is odd, it's quite common for servers to be made free on Steam.

For example, for a while, I ran a Project CARS server, despite me being a PS4 player. It got moderate traffic, and was there simply because I had a cloud server that was underutilized, so I gave something to the community. With the PCARS2 Dedicate Server locked behind a paywall, though, I have no way to do this again, nor do I have any interest in buying a PC and buying the game on Steam.

It seems that it is a bug at the moment and it is normally for free because this quote from the UserGuide.pdf in the pcars 2 dedicated server directory:

The dedicated server is available on Steam to all users, not just owners of the game.

A lot of that going around.

No change as of Patch 2.0.

(For comparison, see the PCARS DS: https://steamdb.info/app/332670/subs/. It's in Anonymous Dedicated Server Comp, which is free but doesn't show up in the "Tools" list of the Steam client, which is a reasonable compromise for servers you don't necessarily want hosting on desktop machines.)

If your server doesn't show itself. There is most likely an error in config.

The console is not smart enough to recognize them, launches fully without errors. And then....... nothing :)
