Hello, fellow sim racers! Welcome to this guide on how to use SimSync for the M1 Endurance league. This is a fantastic program that M1 Endurance is going to use for the 2018 season. Instead of having to manually package and install the M1 Endurance content. You can just run this program and it will sync all the M1 Endurance content.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RFACTOR2 LAUNCHER CLOSED BEFORE YOU RUN SIMSYNC!
You Need To Have Purchased The rFactor2 DLC Endurance Pack For SimSync To Work!
*PLEASE NOTE* IF YOU TRY TO JOIN A ENDURANCE PACK SERVER WITH THE M1 ENDURANCE CONTENT INSTALLED YOU WILL NOT SEE THE BMW, ORECA, PORSCHE AND CORVETTE IN THE CAR LIST. TO FIX THIS GO TO SIMSYNC AND CLICK ‘DELETE SERIES’. THIS WILL DELETE THE M1 ENDURANCE CONTENT. THEN TRY TO JOIN THE ENDURANCE PACK SERVER AGAIN. ALL CARS FROM THE ENDURANCE PACK SHOULD BE IN THE SERVER CAR LIST. YOU WILL THEN HAVE TO RERUN SIMSYNC AND DOWNLOAD ALL THE CONTENT AGAIN FOR YOU TO SEE THE SERVER CAR LIST ON THE M1 ENDURANCE SERVER!
You will need a program such as WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract the zip file. Download 7-Zip here
2.) Extact the zip file to your root rFactor2 folder. This should be \Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2 though it will depend where you have rFactor2 installed. It should look like this below.
3.) Next right click on SimSync and run the program as administrator.
4.) You should then see a message saying SimSync has a new update available. Click yes and let SimSync update itself.
5.) You should now see a box that says ‘Auto Update Succedeed’ simply press ok.
6.) Right click on SimSync once again and run the application as administrator again.
7.) SimSync will then open. Make sure the check box is ticked next to ‘M1 Endurance’ and then simply click start to start the synchronisation. A popup window will open. Simply click ok in the top left.
8.) The synchronisation will now begin. Just let SimSync do the work. Sit back, get yourself a coffee and let it download and install all the files you need. The size of the content you need to download will vary across the season.
9.) Once the SimSync has finished. It will then give you a pop up window saying ‘Synchronisation has finished’. Simply press ok and then exit SimSync. All the files have been download and installed. Startup rFactor2 and join the M1 Endurance server.
