    So, since I replaced the steamplugin.dll (I think; can't remember this happening before), everytime I exit AMS it freezes at the credits and then I get the "Automobilista doesn't work" error.

    Do you have two steam plugins now? Cause that's what would happen if you did. Try deleting the plugin folder and verifying your game install?

    It seems to work fine now, no disconnect or ctd after I deleted the old file, I guess it could be that I had the old file in the same directory.

    For me it's still present, even after verifying game files via steam, and removing the (differently named) old dll from the folder

    It seems servers are good now. Just raced with ACR then F-Vee. But I still don't get any points... And I think the only points I have are from a Beta Race for testing with you guys. It was Karts at Buskerud.

    How many people took part in the race?

    Until the results are shown on VX only @Dave Stephenson can answer why a result didn't count...

    The regs say 4 people min, so first one should count, but it's not immediately processed

    I don't think it's a matter of later processing. I had two races last week also:
    Anyway, I'll try to hit a more crowded server and see what happens.

    Me too, But I had been unlucky because when I have freetime, some crowded race session had just started.

    maybe with the passing time the pilots will get used to joining the ranked server.

    EDITED. Btw, I guess I already did 3 or 4 races with more then 4 drivers and my ranked also kept the same.

    I've watched my ranking over the past few races now, and other than from decay over time, it didn't change. I've had races with 4 people, but also one or two with more participants. Is it important how many people start the race, or rather how many finish it (without disconnecting mid-race)? Because I remember from the races with just 4 drivers, only me and one (maybe two) actually crossed the finish line, the others disconnect at some point, so the car is still there in the pits, but there are just two people actually left on the server.

    Just a little addition here: I just came back from two races on the Mini@Floripa/Salvador Server, and in the classification during quali and race, my rank was at 0.00, while on my profile page it still is at 3.something.

    I think the ranking servers should have the tow time disabled. Several people seem to leave the server and it might be because sitting and watching a timer countdown on what is meant to be a quick fire fun server is not ideal. I like the tire limiting but not the tow feature (at least on quick fun servers).

    Could it be turned off please?

    For my time zone servers are always empty no chance to set a ranking.

    I was on the same server and feel the same: having short 20 mn sessions is ideal but towing kind of kills the practice you could get. I made a mistake and blew my engine; that was quite frustrating to watch a 2 mn timer when there was only 6 mn left. 2 mn for towing and replacing a blown engine is not realistic anyway! :D I think AMS fans love realism but I think that in this case the play pleasure should come first. :)

    Same for me. I'm on the east coast in the U.S. My free it time is limited so I don't know if I will ever get a race rank.

    All servers (with normal content) are always empty
