Arrow GTR2 and P&G - ALTERNATIVE ONLINE LOBBY (for when official one is down)

With the recent bankruptcy of SimBin, and with some unsure situation about the official GTR2 online lobby maintenance, both leagues and public servers of GTR2 and P&G may have problems now and then.

The alternative solution when that happens is to activate the Pielsbierbude GTR2 lobby for online racing with P&G and GTR2, both by the server host and the clients.
It works exactly the same as the SimBin lobby.
Which means, it's a perfect solution whenever the official one is down.

For those confused and not knowing what to do, just download the attached ZIP file to this post and follow the simple instructions provided.


EDIT: the file is also available HERE

EDIT-2: when the SimBin GTR2 lobby is back online and you're using this alternative, you can just revert again by using the backup files. (as per instructions provided in the attached file)


No need to postpone or cancel online racing events of P&G and GTR2.

See you online!


PS: For the curious, Pielsbierbude are the same dedicated people of Altbierbude, having also the GT-Legends lobby working for that game for quite some time now.

1). You need be sure that the server you're trying to join is a P&G server (and not a GTR2 server).
The online lobby is the same between P&G and GTR2 (afterall, P&G is a mod/expansion for GTR2), which means that you'll see both GTR2 and P&G room sessions/servers listed in there.

Ever since the start of P&G, we recommend that every server hosting P&G has some reference to the mod, like a "P&G" or "PnG" (or even "Power&Glory") indication in the name of the room session/server.
This is so that the players don't get confused with the dozens of GTR2 servers, and can instantly recognize a P&G session/server to race with our mod. But, unfortunately, there have been a few exceptions, where that reference for our mod does not appear (which makes it more confusing for the players).


2). You need to know if the server that you're trying to join is using extra content.
The server and the player who joins must have same content in game for the hosted session, otherwise you're not able to get into that specific server.

Looking into the video you posted, you're trying to join one of the Festbierbude servers.
AFAIK, that particular host (http://www.festbierbude.de) runs servers with addons, such as extra tracks, cars (and etc) which are not found originally in P&G v3.
If your wish is to dedicate your P&G installation for their servers, then you'll be better joining their site (login) and ask for their assistance.


(PS: I recommend a quick read of the P&G Multiplayer F.A.Q.)

I understand very clear. I tried to join random on servers. My game is "stock" gtr2 then P&G 3.2. So it's possible that the P&G servers are be very rarely now, or their game are modified. Thank you for support informations.

I have no problem with that, but you should be aware that this thread was intially opened years ago.
No longer racing online, TBH I'm not sure how much of it can still apply.

Uwe and the gang at the 'Bude have posted recently about the issue with Simbin servers being down (yet again, possibly became dead?), and especially for the case of P&G, which now has its own 'bude:
