Hi, I have downloaded some tracks from here, Super Speedway, Sunset Peninsula Speedway, Pine Hills Raceway, Cocoa Beach Raceway & Blue Moon Bay Speedway. None of these tracks will load, I get "Can not load track" when I try to use them. All of my other tracks work just fine. Anybody have any idea what might be going on with these tracks? Thanks in advance for any help.

I have the shared folder in my tracks folder. I have 16 other tracks in the tracks folder and they all work fine in the game. It's just the 5 tracks I just downloaded from here and put in my tracks folder that wont work.

Were they unzipped correctly? No folder inside of the main folder with the same name? And the main folder should always be the same name as the .dat file.

I unzipped them with WinZip like I always do. There is no folder inside the main folder with the same name. The main folders are all the same as the .dat files. Thanks for your help, I am at a loss to figure out why those 5 tracks wont load. Do I have too many tracks inside the tracks folder? Is there a limit to how many tracks you can have in the main tracks folder?

NR2003 will only detect the first 128 tracks in the folder. Any more and they will not appear on the list, using alphabetical priority. So if you have 129 tracks, and say the last one is Watkins Glen, it will be absent from the track selection list.

I only have 26 tracks in the main folder

OK, I don't know if this would make these tracks not load or not but none of the 5 tracks I was talking about have raceline.lp in their folders. All these tracks were made by KitsuneAmy, maybe he can shed some light as to why they wont load in the game.

OK, thanks, I appreciate everyones help, maybe KitsuneAmy can fix these tracks so they will load.
There’s nothing wrong with the tracks.
I downloaded and installed 2, blue moon & cocoa beach, both load without a hitch.

They work with the original “shared.dat”. They don’t require the SBP shared updates.

Well, I don't understand why my 26 other tracks load just fine and those 5 don't. Could there be somethiong wrong with the downloads? I used WinRAR to download these tracks just like I did most of my other tracks and I downloaded them from right here at Stunod Racing. I have the original "shared.dat" installed in my tracks forder.

When you enter the game, the track(s) show up in the tracklist, you click on it, you click "continue", then you get the "could not load" followed by "canceling the weekend".

If yes,
Because I know the tracks contain all the necessary files to load (I have tested all 5 tracks)...
Because you said your other tracks load, you have a legitimate "shared" folder in the "tracks" folder... (However, neither blue moon or cocoa beach use any files from the shared folder)...

All that's left is:
1) You're trying to load the tracks in the GTP mod, GTP mod needs the 4 gtp fast setups, fast.gtp.(marque)
2) You have a corrupt download, 5 corrupt downloads for 5 different files seems unlikely, but stranger things have happened. See if you can unpack the dat file. How recent are your downloads?

Thanks for your help. I do not use the GTP mod. I have not opened the .dat file but the "raceline.lp" file is missing in the folders of all 5 of these tracks. Yes, when I enter the game the tracks do show up in the tracks list but when I click on continue I get the "could not load track" and then "canceling the weekend". I downloaded all 5 tracks from right here at Stunod Racing and unzipped them with Winzip.

I also downloaded them from here in the last few days.
They all load and work.
The raceline.lp is not a requirement, it is only a visual aid for the Player.

I suggested the unpack because if there is an error with the download or a fault in the uncompressing of the rar file, unpacking the dat should reveal the problem.
