Без комментариев Спасибо!
Looks and works unbelievable for a 2006 Sim!!
Great work!
I have some minor problems - textures of the track flickering.
For example at Monza in the first turn, there's some major textures flickering going on in the stands. It's annoying as that happens at both far and very close distance.
Could be a setup thing?

My PC specs are:

GPU: RTX 2060 Super
Processor: Ryzen 5 2600X
SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus
RAM: G.Skill AEGIS F4-3000C16D-16GISB Memory 16GB DDR4
sadly textures flickering happens here and there on some tracks : I have searched to find an easy fix but with no luck. Bjarne told me that the only solution is to replace faulty GMT objects but it is a high time consuming work.
Thank You
Merci et chapeau pour ce formidable Mod. je joue en Real sans aide. Malgré la difficulté I.A au minimum, je trouve l'I.A encore trop fort. Comment puis-je baisser la force de l'I.A encore d'un cran SVP. Merci
salut, dans le menu tu peux régler la difficulté avec un curseur pour définir le % : à 90% normalement c'est facile de dépasser l'IA. Après si tu veux encore les ralentir il faut modifier ton fichier PLR (dans UserData) avec notepad et en particulier réduire "AI CORNER GRIP USAGE" : baisse par paliers de 0.01 jusqu'à obtention d'un niveau correct pour toi. Voilou :)
as always great :) pretty sure you´re working in the next update for this unique game keep it up!!
Thank you so much for all your work. You have definitely brought this sim to next gen status IMHO. My only suggestion would be to remind people that this upgrade also raises the GPU requirements as well. But the look and feel, as well as physics and ffb are outstanding! Thanks again for making my all time favorite racing sim even better.
This game does not feel old with the revamped HD graphics, and the FFB has not dated at all (NTM is excellent)!!! Nice little tweaks all round and great nostalgia. Feels and looks so solid! 9.9/10 !!!!!!!!!
All around great addon. I just plopped into my existing version after several other patches and addon tracks already installed. Worked great. Although issues I had previously still prevailed after the patch, but that is NOT the fault of this patch. It just looks better and AI seems to be a bit smarter and stronger. Had to turn it down a notch until I get it wired again. Thanks for the great work!
5 stars. Keep up with the classic. Although I found some bugs:

1. the menu selection arrow flickers when I hover my mouse over it(not really annoying).
2.Safety car drifts out of tracks during formation lap(Not all tracks, commonly in narrow snaky roads) .
3. AI car pits in although realism settings: mechanical failures, tire wear, fuel use option is "OFF"( Annoying).

Additional suggestion:
1. Make a ranking HUD. So we can see, who is overtaking and know 1st, 2st, 3rd... places.

No, other mod used. All installed clean...

Thank You
thanks for feedback:
1. It's hard coded so I cannot change this behavior
2. I have never had this experience so which track(s) exactly ? HQ or default ?
3. option is for player only and hard coded so I cannot change that either
4. you can download XD plugin : there is an option to enable ranking and you can set the number of cars (top 3-10)
I love this patch, it's mandatory addon after fresh install of the game, thank you very much to keep it updated.

P.S: If the problem is the 500mb RD upload limit, try to upload only a txt file with a external link to download the whole file in another filehost that support bigger files in the future.
thanks for advice but external links are not allowed here at RD. Anyway no body uses the BACKUP folder : it is easier to redo a fresh GTR2 install, so it is not a big deal in the end :)
Thank you!
great hq stuff! thank you very much!
This is THE patch to install on GTR2. Superb.
Best "All-in-one" mod for the game, thanks a lot!
Thanks for update
Why the car pits in again at 1:35:55 after it just pitted before in a 3 hour race?
Nobody reported such a bug in 3 years so I need to know which car(s)/track(s)/settings ? HQ or default ?
Default cars/tracks are stock game so not modified by 10th A.Patch.
If bug occurs with 3rd party track/car mod (i.e. WEC Le Mans) that you've installed then it is not related with 10th A.Patch.
Can you make daytime headlights on random cars?
I don't understand what you mean...I have just sent you PM to know exactly what you are looking for but for any question I suggest you to use support thread here
very great patch. this is excellent.

however, the cars are way too fast on some of the tracks. for example, on Catalunya in 2003, the pole position was made by Lister with a time of 1:40.975.

the best lap in race was done by a Chrysler Viper with a time of 1:45.081.

in game, the cars, at 100% of difficulty, makes a LMP time around 1:33.

and that's the GT cars. the N-GT cars does the time of the GT cars.

myself, in the Lister, I can manage quite easily a 1:40. it should be harder. I should be like 3-4 seconds slower with my actual experience with the AI at 120% doing close to 1:40-1:41 for the fastest cars. otherwise, I really like the HQ revamp :)
Thanks for feedback ;)
Yes AI is faster as it was asked by members because it was too easy to win. Nevertheless I keep in mind your notice and may provide an alternative AI for next update ;)
Спасибо !
