Title: Fixed setups
Post by: Cowboy on December 14, 2017, 10:45:13 PM
We are running VHR 2009, and we would like to put in fixed setups on the dedicated server. I have no idea as how to load a setup. I have tried dropping a set up in the favorites and fixed sets under the dedicated folder, and clicked the fixed set up on the game server. But that didn't work. The set up I put in the fixed and favorites does not stay even after clicking edit and save.

@Cowboy

What I used to do when I ran a league was to take a setup from my computer, upload it to
my dedicated server (VHR09>UserData>DedicatedServer>Settings>name-of-track>setupname.svm), then
modify my FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal file (VHR09>UserData>DedicatedServer).

For example if you want to run a fixed setup at Chicagoland in the Truck Series using your setup named chi-town.svm

You would upload chi-town.svm from your computer to your dedicated server- VHR09>UserData>DedicatedServer>Settings>Chicagoland>chi-town..svm

Then you would modify your FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal file
(VHR09>UserData>DedicatedServer)

Here is an example of an old one I have:

//[[gMa1.002f (c)2007    ]] [[            ]]
AutoLoadEntry
{
  Track="Darlington"
  Classes="VHRCUP"
  Session=7 // not currently used
  File="USERDATA\DedicatedServer\Settings\Darlington\darlington.svm"
}

AutoLoadEntry
{
  Track="Chicagoland"
  Classes="VHRCTS"
  Session=7 // not currently used
  File="USERDATA\DedicatedServer\Settings\Chicagoland\chi-town.svm"
}

AutoLoadEntry
{
  Track="Talladega"
  Classes="VHRNW"
  Session=7 // not currently used
  File="USERDATA\DedicatedServer\Settings\Talladega\tally.svm"
}


Save your modified FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal file, and you should be able to run your fixed setup.
I have attached my old FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal file you can use if you want.

I hope this helps!

Thank you very much for your help. I would have never figured that one out on my own. I did as you mentioned, using your rar file that you were so kind to send. Dropped in the set up after the changes for .gal and it worked like a charm. Your help was very much appreciated. Again Thank you very much.
