    • nah, RAM is okay for the Battlefield and ETS2, follow instructions that I have given you, hope that would work.

  1. i can paly battlefield4 with high setting in 4gb RAM and the grapics was so cool,but ets2 not like that imust upgrade to 6gb RAM and the graphics not really good, WHY?????

  2. I start the game with steam update 1.17.02s ad after the profiles screen will just stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Does anyone have same problem? i have waited for these update and last night when i started just not work….

      • For game to work i must disable all mods, probably mods not work with and last update ( i write wrong before about update). From what i read on steam forums will have to use a new profile start from 0, probably in short time will have mods compatible. Anyway first look at tell me is worth waiting, until then will start new profile and go on with it.

        • The main problem was tsm map 5.4, they say this on their site. And disabled mods i used iwr 5.5 and perfect real physics, maybe this will help others to fix their problem.

    • Florin Horhat (if you’re there) reinstall the game, and remove all mods.

      Or if you don’t wanna reinstall.

      Remove Euro Truck Simulator 2 in the documents folder. ETS2 will automatically create a new folder for the game.

      Hope that would help. 🙂

  3. Though it’s still in beta, there are bugs esp. that disappearing trailer bug one, it’s quite famous in the SCS forum.

      • it was the same thing with the pink truck, which thought was an anti-piracy measure, but even non-cracked ETS2 users had even the pink truck. Same with the disappearing trailers: it was also an anti-piracy measure, but even non-cracked ETS2 users had even the disappearing trailers. Now it is fixed.

        SCS failed 2 times in anti-piracy measure. So I do not know what’s the next step of the SCS to get the anti-piracy measure.

        Though the pink truck and the disappearing trailer may be also be part of the mod. So too many causes somehow.

  4. So, Steam downloaded the update and it installed just fine. But suddenly, I noticed that all my mods and save files are completely gone, they’re nowhere to be found in my PC.

    Did that happen to anyone else, or am I just a really unlucky SOB?
