Since this has become a recurring problem, thanks to the new UI I suppose since I haven't changed any of the processes I've followed for years, I'll add some instructions on how to successfully join the server.
If you are trying to join and the game hangs loading or downloading something, here's what you have to do:
- Inside the game, in the Packages section, uninstall any old versions of the cars and tracks, make sure that the packages files are also deleted from the packages folder
- Manually download the latest version of the cars here: https://www.simracinghub.com/rfactor-2/rf2-cars/5688-srhf1-2021
- Manually download the track being used, track download links can be found here https://www.simracinghub.com/rfactor-2/rf2-tracks
- Inside the game, in the Packages section, install the cars and the track you just downloaded
If you do that, you should be good to join the server. If this did not work, please post the exact steps you followed and what you experience.
