Un-official Setup Comparer Fix

Description [hide]
"Setup Comparer" has been broken for ages... probably because of the newer
rFactor executables.
Because of that, the SVM files gained a few lines and Setup Comparer got borked.
I needed the thing and it wasn't working anymore.

The link to the original coder's page is dead so I could not get in touch
with "Lester Teschner". Since there hasn't been any movement or any updates for
an eternity... in Internet time; the Setup.exe dates back from 2006.

So without asking no one, I figured out what was broken and half a dozen
adjustment later... it's fixed... I think... I hope...

A little additional:
In all vehicle setup files, .SVM, under the [GENERAL] heading, there is a "Notes" field. The content of which is displayed in the bottom box of Setup Comparer.
Most mods don't write anything there but some do. An issue arises when the setup file is saved multiple times, the Notes field gets... saturated and a 2nd Notes field is created. This pushes all subsequent values down. Setup Comparer is not equip to deal with that so it starts displaying garbage.

If you open an setup file and it's all crooked, use a text editor to verify if that is the case. If so, remove excess Notes field but leave at least one with the following syntax:


Thank You.

This is a simple Zip archive, no installer provided.

Just unzip and it should create "SetupComparer" folder with all files in it.
Copy or move that folder with your other rFactor utilities.

Create and move your own shortcuts where needed.
