Running G-Sync (when you have modded Reiza content)

    Hi
    I'd like to get a little advice re G-Syncing for the 1.27 update.

    My GSC Extreme is heavily modded including having rFactor menu, and modded Reiza content: skinned Minis, skinned (and re-classed) Camaros, skinned Formula Classics.

    What should I do before running G-Sync?

    I figure I should backup the folders for the rFactor menu, the Minis, the Camaros and Formula Classics (as the G-Sync will overwrite this content). Then after running G-Sync I should copy the backed up folders back in.

    That'll work fine, more or less, I'm sure. But won't I miss out on some of the 1.27 updates, like the physics/tyre updates relevant to the Minis, the Camaros and Formula Classics? Or are physics / tyre updates installed somewhere else?

    I hope I've managed to explain this properly. Any advice would be very welcome.

    If the mod isn't original Reiza content, it'll be fine (no need to back up)

    I haven't quite got the answer I'm looking for, so here's another way of asking:
    • In which file(s) are physics/tyres defined?

    In the vehicles folder and then in the folder for that car/ mod.

    Physics are HDV files.
    Tyres are TBC files.

    I should add you can't access the Reiza cars physics and tyre files.

    Thanks a lot for your reply. That's what I needed to know.

    In fact, I don't want to access the Reiza cars physics and tyre files. I want to know which files will be updated by 1.27 so that I don't overwrite them when I copy back in the back ups I make of my re-skinned / re-classed original Reiza content before G-Syncing to get 1.27.

    Sorry that above sentence is hard to follow.

    I think they would be in a packaged file along with many other aspects of the car. I would say its a lot of hassle even if it is doable. Reiza quite rightly don't allow easy access to their physics secrets etc.
