I made sure to save backups of my drivers before doing anything. When I tried to uninstall the current drivers and put on the new ones, the program said I didn't have the PC requirements for the older drivers. I used an installer and not any archived file. I'll try something again in the future to try to get rF2 to play and get away from the constant "insufficient video Memory thing."


[OMISSION] Thanks for the advice, though, everyone.

Just had a look at the requirements and newest Windows 10 build supported is 1809 so you might have to create a separate partition and install older Windows 10 version just to play rFactor 2 and set as a dual boot. If you have another drive either internally or externally, you could install to that too.

If you don't want to have another copy of Windows 10 installed, and you have older Windows license like Windows 8.1 or 7, you could install that instead and not have to worry about DCH drivers that way. I think they run also older titles better like TOCA Race Driver 3.
 
After a long while trying to learn how to actually get one of these set up, I finally begun my Github adventures! I finally learned how to launch and maintain a Github after watching a YouTube video. I plan on making a series of static pages to add extra content to my developing Github page. It also means I am possibly going to learn using Markdown. I think I can still use HTML, but I feel Github does a fine job with Markdown. For about a year, I had a Wordpress site hosted through Bluehost; but after I couldn't afford paying another full year to keep it up, I discontinued my old site. I am now hoping Github is what I can use for my own personal website and various content pieces.

In case you're interested, you are welcome to visit my Github page: https://johnbmarine.github.io/ . Remember- it's under a lot of construction, so do not expect too much here at the time of this post.


[UPDATE] I learned Github supports both HTML and the w3.css framework. Therefore, it won't be too long to update and set up my Github page. I did a lot of HTML pages under this CSS framework. Some of my past files date back to 2019. So for at least five years, I've struggled finally uploading a Github page. Now that I know I don't have to be stuck with learning Markdown, I can go ahead and make my personal Github site better than previously.

Tried out the app version of ChatGPT on my Mac. Now I can talk to it. And probably other stuff too.
 
Groan. Got "Inaccessible boot device" this morning on my Windows 10 PC (not my sim rig thankfully). At the moment everything points to a motherboard issue. Man, why does this sort of thing happen when I'm at my busiest - I just won't have time to sort this for at least a couple of weeks.

Rant over. PC is powered off now and I just managed to stop myself from drop kicking it to the bottom of the garden. :lol: My son is going to be peeved when he gets home - he and his buddies have a Balders Gate 3 weekend planned - and we have all the game saves. Oops.

I'll wait until I have some time and look at it again.

Well some stuff in my diary got cancelled so I did have time to sort out the knackered PC. After getting some new & used stuff online I have built a Windows 11 PC that looks like this:

Ryzen 5 3600
Thermaltake Peerless Assassin 120
ASRock A520M HVS
Corsair Vengeance 32GB DDR4 3600
Zotac Gaming RTX 2060
512GB Western Digital M.2 NVMe
500GB Crucial SATA 3 SSD
1.5TB HDD
650W Corsair PSU
2x 27" 1080P displays.

So all in I spent:

£51.99 on motherboard (new from Scan.co.uk)
£62.99 on 2x16GB RAM (new from Scan.co.uk)
£100 on the RTX 2060 (used from Facebook Marketplace)

Everything else is re-used from the old dead PC or was sat on a shelf. My sim rig runs with a 5800X3D and RTX 3080 so at some point a few years down the line I'll no doubt upgrade that rig and so I'll chuck that CPU and GPU into this system to give it a nice boost.
