Build 218 is about to be released, and with the current state of the mods, I want to share my thoughts on this build, and in specific how I would advise you all to install it.... The reason I have made this post, is because I have noticed that, with the current release of 1.4x components by ISI, the whole mod thing is becoming a big issue again, whilst we just managed to get it under control in some way. People get problems again, as they have different versions of different content installed. Now I want to focus on ISI mods first. Starting with build 218, RaceDepartment will only be using the 1.4x components in its weekly mods. As we are getting close to all content being at 1.4x, and in seperate components everything we at RaceDepartment are using is available at this moment, we have an opportunity here to have a fresh start. I figured, I'd give you all a heads up for that. So, when the new build is released, I advise to do the following (keep the order, so you do NOT have to re-activate the game). - Download the LIGHT installer for the latest build. - Install it in a different folder then your current rfactor2. - To avoid issues, I advise to install it OUT of the default ProgramFiles folder, but for instance in c:\games\rfactor2.- Go to the Windows Explorer, and look up your OLD packages folder. - Copy the ISI 1.4x rfmod files to the newly created package folder (so NOT all the series, but JUST the components). - Copy all the NON ISI mods you want to keep into the new packages folder. - Copy the complete content of your old UserData folder to the newly installed one. This includes your setups and custom skins. I am NOT sure about HDR profiles. If you have any, make sure you copy them from your old install to the new one. - Start the launcher. It should start loged in, if you have selected the Remember my tick box, and should be activated. - Download the updated 1.4x components you have not yet downloaded, and place them in the new packages folder. - Start the Mod Manager Now you have to pay attention! As your mod manager remembers your previous install, the 2 folder settings in the right bottom will most likely point to the OLD install folder, and the OLD packages folder. Change them BOTH! - Install all the mods Test everything to see if you havent forgotten anything. If everyhing is ok, you can now remove the old rFactor2 install. Make sure you delete any leftovers in your old installation folders. This should get you a fresh, and clean install of rfactor, without the old versions of the ISI content.
