Steam Release FAQ

Can't download from Steam
Not sure why this has happened but the game is released on Steam, Steam just not showing the install button.
Go to https://steamdb.info/app/1112400/ and click on the green Install button top right.

This has been fixed, head over to the store page now to play. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1112400/

Game fails to open.
Make sure the following are installed, Steam should install these for you.
Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package
DirectX End-User Runtime

Failed to connect to Login Server.
This is due to some connection issue between your PC and out servers. This could be anti virus, firewall, router or ISP.
We have been unable to replicate this issue on our end so can't provide help with this yet.
Tests with VPNs have worked though so try one of those.

Game is laggy and cars are flying around and off the track.
This could be a number of things. At the moment the game servers are all located in London, UK.
We plan on moving North America and Asia servers to their own regions asap, this will help.
The game also runs on P2P technology. So connect to the game server that you are located nearest to.

Tried to log in with my Steam account but it says my password is incorrect.
You need to register on the forum and use the forum username/email and password to login, not your Steam username and password.

Error, old client version.
Beta client will no longer work. Download from Steam.
If you have downloaded from Steam and you get old client error, restart Steam to force an update.

Where can I buy GP?

Or go to, https://steambilling.projecttorque.racing/

"Error: SQLSTATE[22007]: Invalid datetime format: 1366 Incorrect string value: '\xE3\x83\x85'..."
This is due to none standard text in your username such as Emoji. Remove these and you will be able to buy GP.
