rFactor is a computer racing simulator designed with the ability to run any type of four-wheeled vehicle from street cars to open wheel cars of any era. rFactor aimed to be the most accurate race simulator of its time.
rFactor provides unprecedented flexibility, allowing the series to grow and evolve with mod community involvement, race club formation, and feedback from users worldwide.
Trymedia activation, video config, racing, networked racing, everything else I tried.
Note that this was tested with the official exe, not a no cd version.
What does not
Creating a profile to start has a small glitch, see comment.
What was not tested
Various plugins and mods. Although no reason why other mods would not work.
I also installed the game from within wine. Running the game from the windows partition was not tested.
I'm still rating this a Platinum even though there's one glitch with creating a first profile. When you first load, the game will want you to create a profile, but the screen is all black. The keyboard and mouse still work as expected, but unless you know what the game expects, you may not be able to pass it. Workaround is to know where the input boxes are on the screen, or just copy over your profile from your windows install. Creation of profiles after it loads on works normally. Considering this is what most will do anyways, I didn't consider it a major bug.
