WHAT TO DO IF YOUR GAME IS CRASHING ON CLASSIC TRACKS?
No fear, I covered this issue too. It won't look nice in the main menu, but it'll work.
-open the folder "DATABASE - If your game was crashing" in my part 2 package, and put the database file inside of the database folder in-game.
-Now, go to the tracks folder, and create a folder called "new". Open the circuits folder, and move the following folders into the "new" folder: Brands, delhi, nurburgring, jerez, imola.
Now, rename the folders inside the "new" folder as follows:
Brands --> silverstone
delhi --> monaco
jerez --> catalunya
imola --> monza
nurburgring --> hockenheim
This video shows exactly how you should do it!
