To make sure we can continue to provide you with this
service, we have set a number of rules which have to be obeyed at
all times. Breaking the upload rules will result in a ban.
Right to refuse
First of all, we have the right to refuse posting any file without
prior notice. This can either be a pirated file, a file containing
a virus or we just don't see why this file should be hosted on High
Only racesim-related stuff
It is only allowed to upload files that have something to do with
racing sims or racesim hardware. We will not post videos of real-life
events for example.
Could take a while
Please do not ask us why your file has not been posted yet if you
uploaded the file less than 48 hours ago. Sometimes it could take
a little while for our system to update and sending us mail about
it will not speed up the process.
How to submit a file
You can submit a file via our Upload page (chances are you reached
this page via that page, so you have already seen it). All you have
to do is fill in the small form (we won't revise applications with
info missing, all fields have to be filled in), select the file
with Browse and press the "Send File" button. Please
try to make the file as small as possible (use WinZip
for example) to make the download as quick as possible for everyone.
Check for virusses
Make sure your file is absolutely virus-free. We will also be
checking files, but it's not possible to check every single file
all the time. High Gear is not responsible for the files
provided by 3rd-party users (you) that contain virusses. But of
course we'll do our very best to prevent virusses from being uploaded.
Include a readme file
Make sure to include a readme.txt (or .doc for that matter)
readme file with your files. Tell us who created the file, who helped
you with it, etc. The usual stuff. As you can read further below
we're not going to tolerate piracy, so make sure you credit other
people's work. Also don't forget to mention your own website for
people wanting to get more info, etc.
US Pits No Piracy Network (click link for more information)
The purpose of No Piracy is for sim racers to work together to remove
sim piracy from the internet. The sites listed on this page all
subscribe to the same creed...no piracy. These sites will not post
or offer for download pirated software, and will actively work together
to insure persons who DO post pirated software are stopped. If you
find an incident of sim piracy on the net, or are a victim of one,
you may email us the problem and we will keep you anonymous. Make
sure, in case of freeware piracy, that you have examples to prove
that the product being distributed is originally yours. If you have
questions about copyright laws or piracy, please see the FAQ at
