    Australian V8 Supercars MOD for rFactor

    This install includes:
    - Base Install (the core files for running the MOD)
    - Community Edition cars (ideal for league use)
    - Championship Season 2010 cars
    - Championship Season 2011 cars

    !!!IMPORTANT!!!
    Before proceeding with this installation we recommend you uninstall "V8Factor Unleashed BETA v0.9" AND "V8Factor Unleashed Add-on Season 2010 v1.0"

    NOTE: Our old V8Factor 2006 v1.3 mod is a completely separate MOD and is not required for V8FU. It can remain installed or be removed without any problem.

    Installation:

    Follow the instructions in this Installer. Please make sure you select the correct path to your rFactor installation. Files will be automatically installed.

    A note on the legal stuff:

    We regret having to include harsh sounding legal conditions, but the fact remains there are people out there using our work for their own commercial gain. This is illegal on many counts but is also morally questionable and doesn't make sound business sense. There is a fair and legal way to use our work commercially by contacting us to ask for permission. If anyone sees or hears of our work being used in any commercial sense we would appreciate hearing about it so we can take appropriate action, as well as notifying other license owners (eg ISI, V8SA).

  2. Please be aware.....

    There have been reports that Norton 360 is hiding the files when you try to install.. You may need to disable N360 before installation..

    How to Temporarily disable Nortons 360.

    1. Open Nortons from the system tray,
    2. Choose settings > antivirus > realtime protection > autoprotect off.
    3. It will then ask for a timeframe, choose that based on the estimated download time..

    If you are concerned about the Virus implications, it is recommended you virus check the download before installing.

    If you have dowloaded the file already, and you can't see it, the file should be on your system in quarantine. In most situations search the help for setting a file as safe.
