First you will need to create a profile in the sim despite whether or not you've created an account on the DRL website.
In order to track progress, it is recommended that all new users create a profile with the DRL simulator. To do this, select "Profile" from the main menu and then select "Create Profile". Please enter an active email address, create a username, and finish the account creation process.
If you do not see the "Create Profile" button to click on, you may need to adjust your in game graphics resolution by going into the "settings" screen, click "Graphics Settings" and then adjust your resolution there. Be sure to click "Apply" before exiting.
You also may need to click on "Windows Mode", hit apply and then click "windows mode" again. This will allow the screen to refresh and "Create Profile" will now be on the screen.
Note*** If you are receiving an "Invalid Input Parameters" error when attempting to create an account, you will need to create a profile and/or username without an special characters. Profile usernames and passwords are limited to A-Z and 0-9 characters only.
