    Hi everyone. Just wondering. Is it possible to make a second installation of the game on the same machine so we can have a patched and an unpatched version to try out a few things? :confused: With rfactor I had 4 different istalls. I have the DVD version, and my only options are to play , uninstall, help or exit. Some help would be appreciated.

    I don't know much about Games For Windows Live, but wouldn't that prevent play (online) with an unpatched game?

    I don't know much about windows live either. I play offline. But the ability to have 2 or more installs helps alot. You can have 1 for play and 1 for experimenting with mods etc. 1 patched and 1 not... It works with other games. Just wondering if we can do this with F1 2010....

    I have 2 installs running from f1 2010, 1 with the patch and 1 without.
    What i did was very simple, Copy my first install completly to another hdd and boot it up from there worked like a charm.
    Although i have to say, dont run the install from cd as it wont reinstall it a 2nd time.
    And dont forget when u login with ur 2nd F1 2010 install, make sure u make a different windows live account.
    Hope that helped u abit.
