MISTAKE
======

In GTR TRACKS\MODS folder

DELETE this mod, TRACKS #14 - 3RD PARTY TRACKS v1.8 GDB PACK FOR 100 CAR GRID

That mod is already in GTR2 ESSENTIALS ( for no Track Linker)
and GTR TRACKS 3RD PARTY ( for Track Linker )

* GTR2 TRACKS folder is only for mods that use the default tracks

Default Basic Track Linker setup

Disable all MODS
Delete blank track folders


Set up Track Linker ( take note of paths)
See mods enabled in GTR2 folder in the last screenshot



Enabled stock tracks and couple track mods
Boot GTR2 is fine, all tracks unlocked and listed

If I download GTR2 essentials parts 1,2,3, do i still need to download this track linker mod? I don't understand what this does. It looks like it's just more mods but it's not called "part 4" so I don't understand...

.......and you can't follow 10th Anniversary/HQ good luck with this


GTR2 Essentials has 3 variations

GTR2 ESSENTIALS v2.6 (Part 1,2 & 3)

1. Essentials Basic - for activating mods with existing or fresh GTR2 install


GTR2 ESSENTIALS TRACK LINKER MODS v2.6 has the 2 other variations

2. Essentials for Track Linker - PnG Track Linker is a tool allows you to use a single track folder for multiple GTR2 installs

I further divided Track Linker for GTR default tracks and 3rd party tracks

3. Essentials Advanced - This is my personal way of solving basic JSGME issues

When you activate mods in a existing or fresh GTR2 you will get no overwrite warnings or backup for default files only warnings of overwrites to other mods.
As well mods that overwrite mods a 2nd time you will get unwanted warnings for folder overwrites, every time

So.........

By using a blank folder template of GTR2 and a fresh GTR2 with a few modifications packed and activated as the first mod solves all the above.
It will backup and restore unlimited overwrites of every mod
Not to toot my own horn it works and does what I said it will

Hi! Thanks a lot, this ESSENTIALS / TRACKS bundle in 3 + 1 packs is AWESOME!!!!

It's my first time modding GTR2 but I have lots of experience with other games (from GTA III and Morrowind to GTA V and Skyrim, with RTS games like Zero Hour and Dawn of War in between, basically I mod whatever I feel can be worth and HELL, this game really is!)

That being said, I followed to the letter all the instructions in the PDF's included and so far all works perfectly, but I'm so confused on how to procede!

So far I activated only the mods you specifically mentioned in the guides in my GTR2 ESSENTIAL, the GTR2 TRACKS linker says it has linked HQ maps and in fact, they show up in game
But I really don't understand what's the "GTR2 TRACKS 3RD PARTY" for, I tried putting inside the "TRACKS #14 - 3RD PARTY TRACKS v1.8 GDB PACK FOR 100 CAR GRID" folder, it says it linked a lot of tracks but I cannot see them in any of the ingame menus (I always look in practice for changes)

Also, following your guide I intend that I made all the steps for the "HQ/RP AI", do I have to repeat all steps over for "Reborn AI" to use the Reborn "Player" I created in the ESSENTIALS pdf guide? Or I can use the AI simply switching over "HQ/RP AI" for "Reborn AI"?

As I said I'm really noobish in modding GTR2 and got to this awesome point only thanks to your instructions, can you be so kind to help me out with some indications on where I can "get some lore" since this game is so old? Googling is painful, so much outdated stuff...

As a last word, my compliments for the AWESOME optimizations on all the mods!
My rig is a i5 4670K+ 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz + SSD Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB + GTX 660 Ti 3 GB, hence is kinda obsolete...
I cannot believe I can play with all mods activated, all ingame settings maxed out at FULL and beyond with:
4k no AA 16xaf over 100 fps
1440p 4x aa 16xaf over 120 fps (my target)
1080p 16xaa 16xaf over 150 fps
(all in practice mode with only me on the track, we'll see with 32 cars lol xD )
It's madness on my 144hz monitor!!!

Thanks again, I hope I'll hear from you soon!
