I need Norisring for a GPLRACER race.
However, after I isnstalled it, nothing appears in the folder.
Can someone send me a .zip file with all needed data?

You should have it, as long as it was the old package with the old installer and a handfull of loose files. If this is the case, follow this procedure:

1) Extract the content of the (probably zip) archive to a temporary location.
2) Copy the six *.lp files, readme.txt, record.ini, track.ini and dat to the empty norisrng folder.
3) Rename dat to norisrng.dat.
4A) Add Norisring to the necessary season.inis with GEM+ OR
4B) Open install.ini and the season.ini(s) to which you want to add Norisring manually.
5B) Copy the section from [Event_XX] to starting_grid=# and paste these lines at the bottom of the season.ini(s).
6B) Change XX to the event number of the previous track plus one.
7B) At the very top of the season.ini(s), change numEvents to the event number you just entered, which should be one higher than before your edit.

Load Norisring and have fun! :) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this works for you!

I ain't. I have no .ini files, for example. Nothing. Just a track updates, more there isn't.

He meant to copy the files for zip you downloaded... but that wont work neither, as I saw, because the dat file is named dat.file... obviosly something is wrong with the installer too. Download the zip I attached, extract it directly to your tracks folder, then add the track to seazon 67 from gem+ season manager... that worked for me.

I assume your folder has the GTmod fix?

If not there's a fixed installer in this thread at post 17: Norisring

I just had this same problem with the Norisring installation. Just did what s2173 says (extracted his norisrng zip file) and now yes, the track gests installed.
