I can tell you what has changed, but not how. The gtr.mnu(not sure if this is correct, at work, and can't check) file has been altered. I do know that the old F1 mod (v.98) by perfectdark changed mine, and created the same exact problem...a black screen immediately following the legal screen. Here is how I fixed mine. I first renamed my GTR2 folder to GTR2 MODS. Then I re-inserted my disk and re-installed the game to it's default location (c:/GTR2) Then I copied that file over to my mod install and bingo!
I also decided to keep the second install for online league racing, as it was clean and bone stock, and starts a lot faster too~! Keep in mind that the internet user name and PW are exactly the same, and if you want, you can copy your userdata folder, which will import your user name and car settings to your stock game. Or you can delete this new install if space is a problem....Oh and renaming the GTR2 folder will impact your shortcut...LOL
I will verify the file name and path at 8pm EST USA time.
