HOW TO PLAY

Dear community,

here I explain how to play RSF after 12 January 2021 on the current user interface.
The new user interface can be found here and the bug forum post can be found here.

I present 4 options (Nr.1 being the best, Nr.4 the worst)

*** IMPORTANT UPDATE: New simple solution to use Flash ***
Option Nr. 1) Portable Firefox incl. Flash (provided by Gipfelstuermer)

For Windows 10 64-bit system. It's what most people use.

Step 1: Download Portable Firefox incl. Flash from my Google Drive. (168 MB)
Step 2: Unzip the .zip-File.
Step 3: Launch "FirefoxPortable.exe"
Step 4: Go to radsportfreaks.de, click "Play Now", let the plugin load, click "Run Adobe Flash" and "Allow"

What you are downloading, is simply Firefox 70.0 Portable Version with an older Flash player (that doesn't contain the Adobe end-of-life time bomb). That means, you don't even have to use time travel!

If you don't trust my files, you can download it from the original source: I found it in the reddit post Simple solution to use FLASH after January 12 2021 which is based on the tutorial Portable Adobe Flash and it was checked by another user who wrote "Can confirm this solution works. Have scanned it with MalwareBytes and it's clean. Thanks creating and sharing this!".

Option Nr. 2) "Time Travel"
Set the time on your device to any date & time BEFORE 12 January 2021. This should avoid the Adobe Flash error, where Adobe prevents content from running in Flash.

For Windows 10 it is easy, find the explanation here. For other systems, you will find out for sure.

Please note, for this option to work, you need 3 things:
1.) KEEP FLASH INSTALLED.
2.) KEEP A BROWSER WITH FLASH PLUG-IN. (List below!)
3.) ADMIN RIGHTS for your system to change date & time.

BROWSER VERSIONS THAT ALLOW "Time Travel":
- Opera 73.0.3856.329 or older. Can be downloaded here. And here it is explained how to disable automatic update (simply delete a file named "opera_autoupdate.exe").
- Firefox 48.0 or older. Can be downloaded here. And here it is explained how to disable automatic update (Options --> Settings --> Advanced --> Update).
- Chrome 87.0.4280.141 or older. Disable Chrome updates on Windows 10 : Windows+R -> msconfig -> Services-> uncheck the 2 boxes "Google Update Services". If you do that, Chrome won't update, but still ask you often (once an hour?) if you want to update. You just have to answer "no", then. In order to avoid the popup "do you want to update", you can delete the file "Update" in C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Update The browser will need much more time to open (it looks for the file you deleted), but after, no more popup since the browser remains open.

An observation: It seems, you only need to time-travel to start Flash. As soon as the game is running, you can switch back to normal time (which is helpful if you have other programmes running.)

Option 3) App
Download the Android app here: http://cycling4freaks.com/radsport/c4f.apk
This is not a link to the app store, it is a link to download the .apk-File.
Transfer the .apk-File to your Android device (usually via USB) to use it on the phone.

Please note, for this option to work, you need 2 things:
1.) ANDROID DEVICE
2.) RSF Licence

Option 4) The old, old interface
Not fully functional, I think for racing doesn't really work... lots of errors... but at least some things can be viewed if other options do not yet work for you:
http://www.radsportfreaks.com/radsport/loginerfolg.php

-------------------------------------------------

Do you have other experiences? Please share your options and experiences below. I will try to update.

Maybe others found some other options?

This is a challenge for the game, but don't panic. We will make it possible to play.

Please help each other in case of questions/problems/translations.

Go on the normal rsf site in the text above the play now button is a blue clicking here. That should send you to the new site.

Now it worked.
Next problems:
- in inscription I only have 5 race points. My license should still have 242 days... (I see it when I login in the old version with my smartphone and in the new version when I click on License)
- Chat, Transfermarket and fair play votes do not load any data, not on firefox, not on chrome

In my opinion, for the service offered in the old version, it is more worth to switch directly to the new one.
I think it actually has more features than the old one, but let me know.

I don't think Internet Explorer will be ever supported. It requires some features to make it work and unless there is a good base of players on that, don't think it's worth. Basically is going to die for Edge or other alternatives.

It's possible for me to log in, but I can't watch profiles before and after signing in. That's not playable. No Calendar, no stats, no team-site.
I can't see any setting-site in race.
Tried on Edge and Firefox.

Also only have 5 Racepoint instead of 30+ .

As said it is still work in progress.

For racepoints everybody got 40 license points at the start of the year so it should be no problem.
More worried about the thing you can't see settings in race, you can't make tempo / set helpers and so on?

I tried and signed in again for 10:00 o'clock today.
BUT 9:36 o'clock:
"You are currently not playing any race, please register to start to play"

I will just wait as long as you need to solve the general problem. See you soon.

I hope we can fix it as soon as possible.
However your team was actually inscribed, so don't know if maybe just needed to wait a bit more or do a refresh as 9.36 is just 1 minute after the "opening" of the race. Did you try that also a bit later and still same message?

I am allowing managers to have a second test team only for testing purposes, but it MUST be announced as they are created (or if you want to create that) and obviously they CAN'T play with the main team in the same race.

In this way debugging should be a bit faster.
Today actually I completed the whole race in the new version, while the graphic is a bit messy and sprint still not on, I was able to do all basic things as attacking, doing tempo, setting helpers, setting follow, settings for final sprint.
This with CHROME latest version.

The only big bug I saw is the online parameter not setted that makes you always offline and I will solve it in next days.

One important thing for testing, try to not switch costantly between flash and the new version, but to do all the things on the new and just refresh from time to time the flash version (just to not be dropped out), as I fear that by using both and refreshing both at the same time, there may be some incompatibilities / settings overwriting.

Translating for Freude:

Es wird erlaubt ein zweites Team zum testen zu erstellen. Aber nur nach Vorankündigung und nicht in gleichen Rennen. Nur zum testen der neuen non-flash Version.

Beim testen nicht zu viel zwischen flash und non-flash hin und herspringen.

Luques hat heute schon etwas getestet und das meiste hat schon funktioniert.

Am besten das ganze nochmal bei google translate reinsetzen. Hilft dir ganz einfach und ist hilfreich.

I think we are getting at a good point with the new version, although many things still not available, let me know when you also think it would be a good moment to change on the home from flash version to the new version (maybe after sprint and transfermarket we are there)
