Manually creating session on VRC's Dedicated Server
« on: December 07, 2017, 07:59:05 pm »


As an alternative to joining empty servers, it’s possible to use “Create Online Event” screen to create session on specific empty dedicated server.

The advantage of using this approach is to ensure that the player becomes the “host”, and that the server starts with settings set in the Create screen. Note that joining servers that control game settings will not be possible using this method (such servers are filtered out).

There is a special “-selectds” command-line option that will trigger server select before creating new game session.

To change the arguments passed to the game from Steam, go to Steam Library, right click Project CARS 2 and choose Properties.


And then enter the command-line option in the box that appears.

If this command-line switch is present, the game will perform extra step before creating a new session. Game Browser will appear in a special “server select” mode. It will show available empty servers (but will exclude servers that control game setup).

Joining server in this mode will allocate the multiplayer session on a dedicated server instead of creating a peer to peer session.

So you setup your session in create new then select VRC FUN SERVER in the 2nd server browser window enter the password "tintop" job done :)
