UPDATE:
We left Tunngle and are using Evolve now
Read here >>> *LINK*

-------------------------------------------
WR2 Multiplayer Tutorial

World Racing 2 is still playable online, without addon lounges etc.
So, what you mainly need to play it online?

1) Tunngle:
*LINK*
2) Stock "MP Lounge 2" application

Download Tunngle from the official site, make sure it's the last updated version.
After you've installed Tunngle, reboot your PC.
Then, make an account (it's free).
When you have created your own account, on Tunngle, search for a room, in the left corner.
Search for "World Racing 2", then join in.
After you joined the room, make sure your friends who are going to play with you are inside your same room (remember, maximum 6 players are able to play together in WR2).
Then, open MP Lounge 2, and start a LAN (Local) game.

You can play in every room, not forced to use the World Racing 2 room, so if the WR2 room is full you can still play in every other room, for example... "ArmA 2" room :D you will still be able to play online, the important thing is that players have to stay in the same room.

Enjoy!

Tried this method with 8 different players, and worked with all of them, so maybe the only problem you can encunter are open/closed ports.

I want to thank my dear friend "BiggBoss93" who told me about Tunngle, and tried with me to play WR2 online!

-------------------------------------------
FAQs/Troubleshooting
made by "FreddyDaimler"

- I can’t see a hosted game in the MP Lounge 2
Windows Firewall should allow both the MP Lounge and tunngle access in private and public networks. Also antivirus software must be disabled completely (game-mode might still block connections). If this still doesn’t work try to run MP Lounge 2 in compatibility modes.

- I have all the addon cars but can’t join the game
You probably have modified your addon cars or have a different version of it. Download the newest one and reinstall it.

- I see a different track than the other players
Open the WR2 Manager and select the addon tracks you want to be driving on only or it will cause a mismatch. All players should have activated the exact same tracks and sceneries.

-------------------------------------------
Now you know how to play WR2 Online
Have fun! :)

Cheers,
A.G.

Thanks for this. I hope it will make some people want to get their WR2 discs from the dust :) I'm still playing sometimes, with a friend. We always used Tunngle and it's super easy. What about hosting some meetings or events in WR2 online right here on VS?


I'm a noob :3

Well, these are my ideas for now, tell me what you think :P

1) Online Cruise
2) Track Racing
3) Drift Session
4) Meetings (I guess this will require personal cars, and obviously each of you have first to create your own I think?)


# BLiTz : I got a problem,i installed it and when i tried to start it enters black screen and then back to desktop

Did you set compatiblity mode to Win XP SP2? :)

We can make a quick test, stock game without mods just to see if it works well, send me a PM when you want :P

Hinata23: sure! feel free :)

BLiTz: maybe I know what's your problem, did you have some issues with windows after installing the game?
if that's your problem, just install the game, apply the latest patch, copy the whole game folder to another location and then uninstall the game. this will avoid every kind of starforce issues you may have. :)

Starforce Driver Fix (Win 7, but should also work for 8)

Note: Don't run the game before my little guide tells you to!

1. Install WR2 from the disc, full installation to your hard drive.
2. Download the Starforce Driver removal tool (I uploaded it to MediaFire for you)
-Removal Tool
3. Do NOT restart your system as it asks you to after removing the drivers!
4. Download and install the 1.3.3 Patch (Also uploaded this to MediaFire for you)
-Patch 1.3.3
5. Download and install the 1.4.3 Patch (MediaFire again)
-Patch 1.4.3
It is very important that you install both of the patches in this order, even though the files say that it's from 1.1.1 to the patched version!
6. Run the game from the .exe in the main game folder.
7. Enjoy the game! :)

This should be all. If anyone is interested I would also create some quick tutorials on how to install mods or even how to create your own mods. I know there are tutorials for all of that on games.reveur but they aren't that easy to understand imo.

Greetings, Hinata

EDIT: If you are experiencing problems running the game (on Win8 usually), try launching it in compatiblity mode for XP SP3 or 7 ;)

Well, I think it could be good for the beginning if we all use adamraga's drift pack, there's something for everyone in there ^^

Btw, do you guys think it would pay out to open a thread to help people with problems concerning WR2? Like helping them when they get errors or teaching them how to install mods? :)

About cars, we'll use Adamraga Drift Pack.
What about the scenery? (or sceneries) Any clue? :)

Polish Roads is great for drifting with powerful cars, but I'd say it depends on what kind of event we're hosting. For example I would prefer Drifthallen by Pischti for a meeting, but for Tandem stuff I'd choose London Millenium by adam ^^

And another thing: How will we interact during the game session? TeamSpeak?

Some days ago me & BiggBoss93 were going to play Online via Tunngle but I had some problem with it (often happens lately). So, bored of the constant issues of this foolish tool (it's full of damn ads recently) I decided to search for a better and more stable one. I've found this one called Evolve:

*LINK*

I noticed it officially supports WR2, it also has some functions for screenshots and video recording with an overlay app, which can be disabled though in case of problems (BB93 had one lol).
It worked greatly, we used mods and everything was fine, connection was pretty nice, maybe even more stable than Tunngle.
For using it you just need to make an account, confirm it, then make sure it installs its own Network Adapter. The adapter will be installed later, when you will try to join some games and things like that. After this, join the Party (room) I've created which is called "WRmania", just like our Facebook Group.

If interested you can join us here: *LINK*

In case you can't find the WRmania Party on Evolve, send me a friend request via the app (my nick is AutomotiveGaming) and I'll add you to the party.

It works the same way as Tunngle, but easier. You have to stay in the party to be able to see and join the hosted game (same applies for who hosts one).

Cheerz! :D

Just tried the program, seems to be working a lot smoother than Tunngle and a lot less annoying (looking at G2A right here...).

Will add you asap, would love to get back to WR2 some time, but I only have about 3 hours a day for my personal freedom.
