welp. reinstalling the game fixed whatever was causing the my problem with the service not running. now i have to contend with the download manager that persistently crashes / hangs / service unreachable.

and the game that freezes on exit. but at last i can crap drift limerock in an 86 again lol.

Hey guys, I just came by to say hallo and read a little through the "news"

 

I was very moved and I still believe in SRWs comeback.

 

Very interesting fact is, that since SRW was down after the last LiveChamps, I started playing some other driving sims..... BUT after some time I totally stopped. In fact I did not play any driving sims in a couple of months now.

There is this feeling you know, when playing other sim and then always comes back this nostalgic feelings about srw, srw chat, hotlapping, championships etc. and I still miss the Skillquants.

The other games have such a stupid way of handling races, that I just do not like them. I also miss the McLarens and other great cars, which were in SRW.

 

When I personally meet with Ingange and Majomhus, we always get to say some words about SRW and how we miss it, despite having all of this bunch of ther sims.

It is just not the same.

 

So... to keep it short. My hopes are all up. If there is a rebuild or comeback  - I will be back too and I think some other friends will be glad to come back also.

Lets make SRW great again ;) - lets make it clear:

There is still no SIM like SRW  and its Team of people who were creating some memorable moments for us, while organising some great champs.
 

Sometimes I just make myself a cup of coffe, sit down in my chair and watch this:



 


SQ: 820ish -- Miles Raced: 12000 -- Team: ATS -- RIG: DFGT + TV

Need advice for gaming build or workstation? Ask me, don't be so shy.

I left this game in disappointment about 3 years and 10 months ago, can't say that I'm surprised to find it dead now. And with no new content worth 4 years of time. I guess they wrapped this up long ago. It's more expected than anything, I'm afraid.

 

A stupid pricing model for the cars, and next to no freedom of choice in multiplayer. The game is fun until you're looking for more than oval racing with the Evo X, but find only pre-created multiplayer events to push car sales, and no people to play with because they can't drop $1,000 on the content.

 

Rest in peace you failed business model. And now I'll probably get flayed  :rolleyes:

The agent works ok, why are you saying it is broke?

Unless you have used the patched version, if so you need the original one or it will not work.

Ok, just one question: could you explain how did you calculate that $1000? All of Simraceway's content that's for sale, which is only cars, because you never had to pay for any of the tracks, is about half of that ($500) and you could also get it in a bundle, for less than a third of that, so $299.

I think he was looking to make some around here...

The game it is fine and as we say in Portugal, only will be missed the ones that are playing it, the ones that aren't won't be....
