    I want to do a clean install for my ARCA copy. Where do i start now. I kinda lost track with all the patches and automated downloaders and stuff.

    Who can help me out?

    Yeah I want to do the same. I think they have a different way of installing things now. You install the sim and there's something called 'Leverage' that supposed to register you and keep things updated.

    I'm installing now to see what happens.

    I've installed it. Now I'm looking for a way to get on Leverage to register and get the latest update, 1128G I think.

    Easy,

    Get the client here: www.thesimfactory.com/ASR_L1.zip
    Next, install it, and then click on register
    Select Update my DVD, and then choose I do not have my code
    Enter your email, and a code will be sent, click continue, enter both and off ya go

    There will be nothing left to do when it's completed. No DISC is required anymore. NO manual patches, all automated.

    Let me know if you have any issues .... :)

    Update went smooth, just did my first online laps after a year and I must say I am pretty impressed with the news physics and the new tracks.

    Top Job TSF :thumb:

    (Bruce will be finished next week :D)

    I'll be finished tonight for sure. Just got out the 4-speed gated shifter and will be up and running within an hour I would guess. Of course with a bit of extra help from a very talented member of the developer's team. :D

    (thanks Zip) :)
