GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH v9.5 by GTR233 and friends
------------------------------------------------------

This archive was compressed with 7-zip archiver v17.01 (update your archiver if it tells you that archive is damaged)
Archive size = 232 Mo
Archive md5 checksum = 20C9373F161749CFA5BBA2436C7077A8


v9.5
- updated legal screen to v1.1.9.5
- added HQ MIRROR v1.0 : increased resolution up to 1024 (thanks to DurgeDriven for advice)
- updated GTR2 HQ Cars&Tracks to v9.5 : updated HQ tracks fog, increased seat position range (you need to map the keys in controls menu to adjust seat up/down/forward/backward), Gillet & Saleen hood fixes by Zipdrive, updated HQ tires (thanks to syhlif32 for advices)
- updated GTR2 MULTI-PATCHES to v14.0
- updated GTR2 HQ SCREEN DIRT to v7.0 : medium version (for GTR2 cars only), removed DDS from GameData\Teams directory

NB1: my skins use standard GTR2 windows so they will work for all mods which respect GTR2 windows format !!!
NB2: remove all SCREEN_DIRT00/05.dds from GameData\Teams\ directory (FOR ALL CARS option) to fix the black windows bug when you install 3rd party mods which are not converted properly with same windows format as GTR2. Side effect is that all other 3rd party mods which are properly made (99% mods) will not benefit anymore from HQ dirt screen textures (i.e. WSGT, SGT500, etc...). Nevertheless, you can still have the black windows bug if you run 3rd party mods with a mix of cars from GTR2 windows format and non-GTR2 windows format : probably due to material textures conflicts inside the mod itself (if modder is not able to fix his mod then an alternative solution is to disable windshield view in GTR2 menu).

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
- MS Dx9/dll last updates from 2010 packages to improve GTR2 compatibility with new OS
- 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 New Gfx v1.6 by Syhlif32 (patch for Dx9 shaders, see included txt readme)
- GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION v9.5 :

etc...

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 : 956 Mo

ATTENTION: GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so make a backup first or make a second GTR2 install (recommended) on your hard disk (see install process below)

No online mismatch


Usage Disclaimer :
-
This mod is PRIVATE (need registration to nogrip to download it), this 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 [OPTIONAL LANGUAGES] 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 (removed FNTCMOTM.BMP) in order to activate cockpit LCD skin, now the FNTCMOTM.BMP used is the one included into every XXX_CPIT.GTR. Nevertheless, some 3rd party mods have no FNTCMOTM.BMP included or a bad one (LCD shows gears only). To fix these kind of mods (e.g. few cars in FIAGT2008 and PCC2006-2009), 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="0.97" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.99" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.98" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.97" // 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="5.00000" // 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".
