    Is it possible to install F1 2010 on a PC? I would like to have a clean install and one with mods as a test bed to see how the mods work. My current game is located in :/ProgramFiles/Codemasters. I am sure that I can direct the install to a different path, but I was wondering what about the files that automatically go to MyDocument/MyGames/FormulaOne.

    The only way i could think it would be possible, is to have different window accounts. But maybe its possible with a steam version and a retail version.

    I have the Retail version, I do not go through Stream when I play. I am also not an online player.

    I think someone tried it in 2 different user accounts and it didnt work. Despite seperate profiles, it uses the same registry so it prevents a duplicate install.

    Unfortunately no. I personally only use it for the ai mods and the autosave fix so that I can play online and play a good singleplayer. I'm not sure what mods you are testing. If you are serious about the multi installs, I would do a fresh install of the game (or check integrity of the files in steam, which restores the original game, if you use steam.) Then I would use the mod manager for everything.

    Thanks for the reply. I don't use Stream as I am not an online player. Lucky for me I am only three races into my second season, so a reinstall and starting over would not be a killer.

    Surely you can save off your game progress in my docs and then reintroduce it once you have done the fresh install?

    Alternatively, if you know what mods you have installed, then it will be easy to see which original files you need to roll back. Im sure someone on here would gladly upload the originals to save you having to install from scratch.

    Ill do it for you if you can tell me which mods you currently have, no worries.

    Actually, I did copy each original folder that was going to be modified and save them in a backup directory. So I could simply copy and paste them back to there original location and I would have it back to the unmolested state.

    Yup, that should sort you right out.
