Running a dedicated server, but everyone gets timed out between tracks, any idea.
Are you sure its everyone? seems to be people with GPUs that have low amounts of VRAM that timeout, when a new track is loaded and the lobby is near full.

Yup, we had 4 people playing yesterday, and tried various amounts of bots from 0 to 24, and about 80% of the time we ALL Dc'd at the same time, after the event as it was changing from one map to the next, 2 of us are using NVidia 1080 and 1080i GPUs, and i have 32gb ram on my i7, and the chap who uses the 1080i have 16gb with an i7.
The server is running Xeon processors, and has a 60mb internet connection.

Any thoughts.?

Hmm that is strange,seems to confirm that it is server related and not player specific. Not sure of a specific way to fix it, and not a problem ive heard of before.
I have had issues with certain bots making players ping out on joining, but it was mod related, 100% and am unsure if the base game can create the same problem.

If someone doesnt reply with a fix id recommend trying to narrow down where the problem is.
Can you reproduce the error consistently?
bad event loop .cfg?
certain tracks?
less players?
no bots?
certain bot ai?

Then investigate hardware on the server.CPU and RAM usage (specifically on track change)? And as unlikely as it probably is,networking issue on the server?

More bots or more players increase load times. Happens offline and online.

Get 20+ players\bots, definitely will notice longer loading of tracks. And tracks like the Sandpit tracks take longer to load if players using high or max graphic settings.

You are giving players enough time for track to load before starting the next race?

How do i change the time to load between tracks?????
Sounds like that could be the issue.

You cant, I think purple is suggesting you wait until everyone is fully loaded before starting a race. But if that was the problem,youd all be kicked except the 1 person who started the 'race starting countdown'

Are there any useful logs that may indicate why everyone is timing out.??

There is not,youd need to try narrow down where the problem exists and consistently reproduce it
