Description :
-------------
This GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH represents 2 years of work and includes all the necessary MODS/PATCHES for GTR2 (no options here except language for French, German, Italian, Portuguese & Spanish) :
- OFFICIAL SIMBIN update v1.1
- GTR2 New Gfx v1.6 by syhlif32 (patch for Dx9 shaders, see included txt readme)
- GTR2 UI MOD by DucFreak (16/9 - 10th Anniversary, see included pdf readme)
- MS Dx9 last update from 2010 package
- no-cd by Reloaded with 4GB PATCH by Daniel Pistelli : GTR2 is more than 10 years old now and keep on using this old precious DVD of GTR2 in the DVD tray may possibly get it scratched/damaged. Moreover, it is been more than 10 years now that this no-cd is available at nogrip so I suppose that SIMBIN tolerates its usage. So for both reasons, I decided to include it in order to make a full single patch with 4GB RAM enabled.
- GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION v9.3

This GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch is a basis then you can fine tune options with GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION available here : [url]http://www.nogripracing.com/details.php?filenr=43930[/url]

PnG3 note : as many patches are dedicated to stock GTR2 cars, I do not recommend to install this GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch over PnG install, especially if you have chosen "slim down existing install". For PnG3 install I recommend my GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION : you can selectively install PnG compatible mods/patches whether you have kept GTR2 stock cars or not.

Disk space requirement : 1 Go
No online mismatch

v9.3
Finally it makes sense for me to re-add HQ AI, cars & tracks as many glitches/bugs are fixed in these files
- removed leftover BMP files
- updated DucFreak's GTR2 UI MOD 10th Anniversary to v4.0
- updated GTR2 MULTI-PATCHES to v12.2 : added #69 Proton Spa liveries (thanks to Chopchop)
- updated legal screen to v1.1.9.3
- added GTR2 HQ AI v3.1
- added GTR2 HQ Cars&Tracks v9.3 : ATTENTION! HQ tracks files have been moved to dedicated HQ folders so delete any HQ previous versions

Usage Disclaimer :
-
This mod is a non-profit work made for fun and provided as is, without warranty of any kind, use it at your own risk
You are permitted to install and play this mod for private home use only, any commercial or public uses are forbidden
It is forbidden to convert/modify any materials, or use it as part of another mod without written permission
The original source is only available at nogripracing.com : [url]http://www.nogripracing.com/details.php?filenr=44586[/url]
Archive was tested with Kaspersky AV and to be sure that the archive you have downloaded was not modified then compare MD5 checksum with the one available at nogripracing.com


Installation :
-
TIP: you can have multiple GTR2 installs on your PC so a new/clean install dedicated to this 10t Anniv. PATCH is highly recommended and no need to backup files in this case : you can skip step 1 and go ahead to step 2.

1) BACKUP (make a 7z/rar/zip archive to save your files)
-
GTR2\GameData\Talent (make a rar/zip of all folder)
GTR2\GameData\Locations\SHARED\Skies_Central.gtr
GTR2\GameData\Locations\SHARED\Skies_North.gtr
GTR2\GameData\Locations\SHARED\Skies_South.gtr
GTR2\GameData\Teams\expo.set
GTR2\GameData\Teams\spin.set
GTR2\UIData\UISounds\click_1.wav
GTR2\UIData\UISounds\click_2.wav
GTR2\UIData\UISounds\mouse_over.wav
GTR2\UIData\UISounds\thunk 1.wav
GTR2\UIData\UISounds\thunk 2.wav
GTR2\UIData\Game.dic
GTR2\UIData\gtr2ui.mnu
GTR2\UIData\legal.bmp
GTR2\UIData\UIAssets.GTR
GTR2\UserData\defviews.cam
GTR2\GTR2.exe
GTR2\gfx.GTR


2) COPY-PASTE-OVERWRITE
-
a) New GTR2 INSTALL highly recommended

b) Copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTR2 directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

c) Set (right click>properties>compatibility) GTR2.exe + GTR2Config.exe + GTR2Dedicated.exe + GTR2TimeTrialInstaller.exe as WindowsXP compatible and check ADMINISTRATOR rights

d) launch GTR2Config.exe : set your monitor resolution, choose DirectX 9 (DO NOT set AUTO) and DO NOT CHECK AA/vSync options (go to AMD/NVIDIA settings instead)

e) launch GTR2.exe

NB: this GTR2 10th Anniv. Patch, and GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION as well, will neither cause online mismatch nor CTD but one day you might install other mods which will.
If Crash-To-Desktop happens then launch GTR2 with "GTR2_debug_mode.bat" to get more info about the CTD.
If online mismatch happens then try first to edit PLR file in GTR2\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 529 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"


3) [OPTIONS]
-
a) Language : go to [GTR2 UI EXTRA LANG] folder, choose your language then copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTR2 directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

b) FNTCMOTM.BMP : UIAssets.GTR is patched in order to activate LCD skin, now the FNTCMOTM.BMP used is the one included into every XXX_CPIT.GTR. Nevertheless, very few 3rd party mods have no FNTCMOTM.BMP included or a bad one (LCD shows gears only). To fix these kind of mods (only few cars in FIAGT2008 and PCC2007-2009 to my knowledge), download Geditor (see link in credits) then open XXX_CPIT.GTR to include the default FNTCMOTM.BMP provided in [FNTCMOTM.BMP for bad LCD] folder and save file.

c) Edit your PLR : go to \GTR2\UserData\YOURNAME to make a backup of YOURNAME.plr then open it with notepad and replace these lines :
AI Power Calibration="7" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="0.98" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.98" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.97" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical cornering grip that AI attempt to use
AI Max Load="39000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="8.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="40" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions
Vehicle Specific AI Setups="0".
