ATTENTION: GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so make a backup first or make a second GTR2 install (recommended) on your hard disk (see install process)

No online mismatch (*) : This mod does not overwrite stock game which is still available, so you need to select any HQ car + HQ track.

This GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch is a basis then you can fine tune options with GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION which includes some extra content not available in the 10th Anniversary Patch (HDR 4k Skies, HQ DAYTIME HEADLIGHTS, HQ F360 SOUNDS, and HQ BRAKES/HEADLIGHTS/HUD/LENS FLARE/SAFETY CAR/START LIGHTS/SCREEN DIRT/TREAD/AMBIENT SHADOW/BACKFIRE/MIRROR/SPARK variants) : https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/gtr2-hq-mods-collection.152457/

> HQ tyres : First, many thanks to my beta testers for their feedback, initially Syhlif32 was the first to show me the way, then Shovas gave me precious feedback and more recently TzZyO and Mach77 gave me tips to improve them. I have spent quite a year of work on these HQ tyres with thousands of test laps : 38 different tyres * 6 compounds * 4 laps minimum to reach optimum tyre temperatures = 912 test laps each time you modify values in TYR files !
And now you ask why I did that ? Simply because I have always found that stock tyres have got too much grip in dry conditions and very weak grip in wet conditions, so I reduced grip in dry and I increased grip in wet with optimized tyre temperatures. My tyres are a lot more hardcore to play in dry weather, especially with hard compounds and when they are cold, so remember these advices : HQ tyres need at least 3-4 laps to reach optimum temperature in order to gain max grip, so be nice on accelerator the first 3 laps and especially the first one. Be careful with accelerator in corners/curves (just imagine driving with an egg under accelerator), when you see the car starting to slip from back end then release accelerator and adjust only center of steering wheel in direction of the track, and only when your car is stabilized, progressively re-accelerate. As stock tyres have got glue effect, you may never used traction control with vanilla game, but with HQ tyres I recommend to enable traction control, at least on low, if you cannot stay on track or if you use keyboard/joypad controller (steering wheel is highly recommended though). Moreover, medium compounds are set by default so select soft compounds to gain extra grip, or in contrary select hard compounds if you like more challenge.

ONLINE INFORMATION :
--------------------
GTR2 is more than 10 years old now and SimBin lobby online server is definitely closed : this means that your only chance to play GTR2 online nowadays is to join a GTR2 league such as koelschbierbude.de by example (native german website but do not be afraid as you will always find helpful people who speak english, moreover click on UNION JACK flag at top to translate forum).
Due to specific league files updater, if you experience online mismatch with your favorite GTR2 league then :
- edit your PLR file in GTR2\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 529 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"
- if online mismatch still occurs then ask your league manager to add GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH files to the server

Disk space requirement : 1.46 Go

ATTENTION: GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so make a backup first or make a second GTR2 install (recommended) on your hard disk (see install process below)

No online mismatch (*) : This mod does not overwrite stock game which is still available, so you need to select any HQ car + HQ track.


(*) SPECIFIC Patches for HQ Cars & Tracks only
----------------------------------------------
In order to avoid on-line mismatch, some advanced patches/fixes are not available for stock cars/tracks but only for HQ Cars & Tracks when you select them in menu :
> fixed Donington pitcrew position, added Oschersleben startlights fix by derDumeklemmer, fixed Donington/Enna max vehicles, adusted AI qualification/race speed, fixed Oschersleben safety car position, fixed GDB championships in order to skip Qualif.1 (to avoid random grid bug), added zbuffer shadow in CAS files (gives more fps with New Gfx by Syhlif32), increased seat position range, adjusted driver position for all cars to avoid glitches such as driver in mirror (especially shoulders), hands collisions with legs when turning steering wheel, hand and shift stick collisions. Unfortunately some cars have not got enough space for legs so you may still see collision glitches with feet/floor especially when you use pedals.

> TVR : fixed rainscreen (thanks to Art), fixed body mask, fixed interior banner height, added HQ cockpit LCD in blue
> HQ tyres : First, many thanks to my beta testers for their feedback, initially Syhlif32 was the first to show me the way, then Shovas gave me precious feedback and more recently TzZyO and Mach77 gave me tips to improve them. I have spent quite a year of work on these HQ tyres with thousands of test laps : 38 different tyres * 6 compounds * 4 laps minimum to reach optimum tyre temperatures = 912 test laps each time you modify values in TYR files !
And now you ask why I did that ? Simply because I have always found that stock tyres have got too much grip in dry conditions and very weak grip in wet conditions, so I reduced grip in dry and I increased grip in wet with optimized tyre temperatures. My tyres are a lot more hardcore to play in dry weather, especially with hard compounds and when they are cold, so remember these advices : HQ tyres need at least 3-4 laps to reach optimum temperature in order to gain max grip, so be nice on accelerator the first 3 laps and especially the first one. Be careful with accelerator in corners/curves (just imagine driving with an egg under accelerator), when you see the car starting to slip from back end then release accelerator and adjust only center of steering wheel in direction of the track, and only when your car is stabilized, progressively re-accelerate. As stock tyres have got glue effect, you may never used traction control with vanilla game, but with HQ tyres I recommend to enable traction control, at least on low, if you cannot stay on track or if you use keyboard/joypad controller (steering wheel is highly recommended though). Moreover, medium compounds are set by default so select soft compounds to gain extra grip, or in contrary select hard compounds if you like more challenge.

ONLINE INFORMATION :
--------------------
GTR2 is more than 10 years old now and SimBin lobby online server is definitely closed : this means that your only chance to play GTR2 online nowadays is to join a GTR2 league such as koelschbierbude.de by example (native german website but do not be afraid as you will always find helpful people who speak english, moreover click on UNION JACK flag at top to translate forum).
Due to specific league files updater, if you experience online mismatch with your favorite GTR2 league then :
- edit your PLR file in GTR2\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 529 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"
- if online mismatch still occurs then ask your league manager to add GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH files to the server

Disk space requirement : 1.46 Go

ATTENTION: GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so make a backup first or make a second GTR2 install (recommended) on your hard disk (see install process below)

No online mismatch (*) : This mod does not overwrite stock game which is still available, so you need to select any HQ car + HQ track.


(*) SPECIFIC Patches for HQ Cars & Tracks only
----------------------------------------------
In order to avoid on-line mismatch, some advanced patches/fixes are not available for stock cars/tracks but only for HQ Cars & Tracks when you select them in menu :
> fixed Donington pitcrew position, added Oschersleben startlights fix by derDumeklemmer, fixed Donington/Enna max vehicles, adusted AI qualification/race speed, fixed Oschersleben safety car position, fixed GDB championships in order to skip Qualif.1 (to avoid random grid bug), added zbuffer shadow in CAS files (gives more fps with New Gfx by Syhlif32), increased seat position range, adjusted driver position for all cars to avoid glitches such as driver in mirror (especially shoulders), hands collisions with legs when turning steering wheel, hand and shift stick collisions. Unfortunately some cars have not got enough space for legs so you may still see collision glitches with feet/floor especially when you use pedals.

> HQ tyres : First, many thanks to my beta testers for their feedback, initially Syhlif32 was the first to show me the way, then Shovas gave me precious feedback and more recently TzZyO gave me tips to improve them. I have spent quite a year of work on these HQ tyres with thousands of test laps : 38 different tyres * 6 compounds * 4 laps minimum to reach optimum tyre temperatures = 912 test laps each time you modify values in TYR files !
And now you ask why I did that ? Simply because I have always found that stock tyres have got too much grip in dry conditions and very weak grip in wet conditions, so I reduced grip in dry and I increased grip in wet. My tyres are a lot more hardcore to play in dry weather, especially with hard compounds, so remember these advices : HQ tyres need at least 3 laps to reach optimum temperature in order to gain max grip, so be nice on accelerator the first 3 laps and especially the first one. Be careful with accelerator in corners/curves (just imagine driving with an egg under accelerator), when you see the car starting to slip from back end then release accelerator and adjust only center of steering wheel in direction of the track, and only when your car is stabilized, progressively re-accelerate. As stock tyres have got glue effect, you may never used traction control with vanilla game, but with HQ tyres I recommend to enable traction control, at least on low, if you cannot stay on track or if you use keyboard/joypad controller (steering wheel is highly recommended though). Moreover, medium compounds are set by default so select soft compounds to gain extra grip, or in contrary select hard compounds if you like drift.

ONLINE INFORMATION :
--------------------
GTR2 is more than 10 years old now and SimBin lobby online server is definitely closed : this means that your only chance to play GTR2 online nowadays is to join a GTR2 league such as koelschbierbude.de or rennsimulanten.de by example.
Moreover, due to specific league files updater you may experience online mismatch with your favorite GTR2 league server. In order to by-pass this issue you can try to :
- edit your PLR file in GTR2\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 529 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"
- ask your league manager to add GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH files to the server


Usage Disclaimer :

Archive was tested with Kaspersky AV and to be sure that the archive you have downloaded was not modified then compare MD5 checksum with the one available at RACEDEPARTMENT.COM


PnG3 note :
-----------
as many patches are dedicated to stock GTR2 cars, you can only install this GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch with PnG install option 3 : if you have chosen install option 1-2 then you will get CTD !!! Moreover you will lose nice PnG3 UI.
For PnG3, I recommend my GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION as you can selectively install PnG compatible mods/patches whether you have kept GTR2 stock cars or not : https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/gtr2-hq-mods-collection.152457/.


Installation :
--------------
TIP: you can have multiple GTR2 installs on your PC so a new/clean install dedicated to this 10t Anniversary PATCH is highly recommended and no need to backup files in this case : you can skip step 1 and go ahead to step 2.

1) BACKUP (make a 7z/rar/zip archive to save your files)
---------
GTR2\UIData\Game.dic
GTR2\GTR2.exe


2) COPY-PASTE-OVERWRITE
-----------------------
a) New GTR2 INSTALL highly recommended

b) Copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTR2 directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

c) Inside GTR2\ directory set all .EXE files as WindowsXP compatible (right click>properties>compatibility) and check ADMINISTRATOR rights

d) launch GTR2Config.exe : set your monitor resolution, choose DirectX 9 (DO NOT set AUTO) and DO NOT CHECK AA/vSync options (go to AMD/NVIDIA settings instead)

e) launch GTR2.exe

f) Edit your PLR : go to \GTR2\UserData\YOURNAME to make a backup of YOURNAME.plr then open it with notepad and replace these lines :

for PnG3/GTL:
AI Driver Strength Boost="0" // For the hardcore only - strength value added to in-game difficulty levels to make AI faster
AI Power Calibration="4" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="0.95" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.93" // you can set value between 0.90 for slow AI and 0.96 for fast AI. THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE SETTINGS TO ADJUST AI SPEED TO YOUR OWN DRIVING SKILLS (confirmed by Shovas and Andrew C. Clegg)
AI Max Load="42000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="8.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="32" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions (40 is FPS killer with heavy mods/tracks)
Player Car Equal="0"

for GTR2:
AI Power Calibration="4" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="0.96" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.97" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.97" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.93" // Fraction of theoretical cornering grip that AI attempt to use
AI Max Load="42000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="6.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="32" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions (40 is FPS killer with heavy mods/tracks)
Player Car Equal="0"

Vehicle Specific AI Setups="0" //This last one is very important when you use mods!!!

NB: this GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch, and GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION as well, will neither cause online mismatch nor CTD but one day you might install other mods which will. If Crash-To-Desktop happens then launch GTR2 with "GTR2_debug.bat" to get more info about the CTD.
If online mismatch happens then try first to edit PLR file in GTR2\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 529 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"


3) [OPTIONS]
------------
a-[PREVIEW] : GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch screenshots

b-[README] : you have got important reading here and especially Shovas-PLR-FFB-Tweaks for better wheels feeling

c-[OPTIONAL LANGUAGES] : choose your language then copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTR2 directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

> HQ tyres : First, many thanks to my beta testers for their feedback, initially Syhlif32 was the first to show me the way, then Shovas gave me precious feedback and more recently TzZyO gave me tips to improve them. I have spent quite a year of work on these HQ tyres with thousands of test laps : 38 different tyres * 6 compounds * 4 laps minimum to reach optimum tyre temperatures = 912 test laps each time you modify values in TYR files !
And now you ask why I did that ? Simply because I have always found that stock tyres have got too much grip in dry conditions and very weak grip in wet conditions, so I reduced grip in dry and I increased grip in wet. My tyres are a lot more hardcore to play in dry weather, especially with hard compounds, so remember these advices : HQ tyres need at least 3 laps to reach optimum temperature in order to gain max grip, so be nice on accelerator the first 3 laps and especially the first one. Be careful with accelerator in corners/curves (just imagine driving with an egg under accelerator), when you see the car starting to slip from back end then release accelerator and adjust only center of steering wheel in direction of the track, and only when your car is stabilized, progressively re-accelerate. As stock tyres have got glue effect, you may never used traction control with vanilla game, but with HQ tyres I recommend to enable traction control, at least on low, if you cannot stay on track or if you use keyboard/joypad controller (steering wheel is highly recommended though). Moreover, medium compounds are set by default so select soft compounds to gain extra grip, or in contrary select hard compounds if you like drift.

You are permitted to install and play this mod for private home use only, any commercial or public uses are forbidden.
It is forbidden to convert/modify any materials, or use it as part of another mod without written permission.

Archive was tested with Kaspersky AV and to be sure that the archive you have downloaded was not modified then compare MD5 checksum with the one available at RACEDEPARTMENT.COM


PnG3 note :
-----------
as many patches are dedicated to stock GTR2 cars, you can only install this GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch with PnG install option 3 : if you have chosen install option 1-2 then you will get CTD !!! Moreover you will lose nice PnG3 UI.
For PnG3, I recommend my GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION as you can selectively install PnG compatible mods/patches whether you have kept GTR2 stock cars or not : https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/gtr2-hq-mods-collection.152457/.


Installation :
--------------
TIP: you can have multiple GTR2 installs on your PC so a new/clean install dedicated to this 10t Anniversary PATCH is highly recommended and no need to backup files in this case : you can skip step 1 and go ahead to step 2.

1) BACKUP (make a 7z/rar/zip archive to save your files)
---------
GTR2\UIData\Game.dic
GTR2\GTR2.exe


2) COPY-PASTE-OVERWRITE
-----------------------
a) New GTR2 INSTALL highly recommended

b) Copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTR2 directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

c) Inside GTR2\ directory set all .EXE files as WindowsXP compatible (right click>properties>compatibility) and check ADMINISTRATOR rights

d) launch GTR2Config.exe : set your monitor resolution, choose DirectX 9 (DO NOT set AUTO) and DO NOT CHECK AA/vSync options (go to AMD/NVIDIA settings instead)

e) launch GTR2.exe

f) Edit your PLR : go to \GTR2\UserData\YOURNAME to make a backup of YOURNAME.plr then open it with notepad and replace these lines :
AI Power Calibration="7" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="0.97" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.99" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.98" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.97" // Fraction of theoretical cornering grip that AI attempt to use
AI Max Load="39000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="5.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="40" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions

Vehicle Specific AI Setups="0" //This last one is very important when you use mods!!!


NB: this GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch, and GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION as well, will neither cause online mismatch nor CTD but one day you might install other mods which will. If Crash-To-Desktop happens then launch GTR2 with "GTR2_debug.bat" to get more info about the CTD.
If online mismatch happens then try first to edit PLR file in GTR2\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 529 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"


3) [OPTIONS]
------------
a-[PREVIEW] : GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch screenshots

b-[README] : you have got important reading here and especially Shovas-PLR-FFB-Tweaks for better wheels feeling

c-[OPTIONAL LANGUAGES] : choose your language then copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTR2 directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

d-[GTR2 UNLOCKER] : copy SDNDTG.DYN in \GTR2 directory to unlock all tracks & championships

e-[FNTCMOTM.BMP] : UIAssets.GTR is patched (removed FNTCMOTM.BMP) in order to activate cockpit LCD skin, now the FNTCMOTM.BMP used is the one included into every single car XXX_CPIT.GTR. Nevertheless, some 3rd party mods have no FNTCMOTM.BMP or a bad one (see picture). To fix these mods (e.g. XXX_CPIT.GTR in FIAGT2008 and PCC2006-2009), download Geditor then open XXX_CPIT.GTR to include the default FNTCMOTM.BMP provided and save file.

f-[RESTORE ORIGINAL GTR2 BACKUP] : backup of original GTR2 files overwritten during GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch install.
ATTENTION: original GTR2.EXE and Game.dic are not included in this backup !!!

Description :
-------------
This GTR2 10th Anniversary PATCH represents 3 years of work and includes all the necessary MODS/PATCHES for GTR2 :
- OFFICIAL SIMBIN update v1.1
- MS Dx9/dll last updates from 2010 packages to improve GTR2 compatibility with new OS
- no-cd by Reloaded with 4GB PATCH by Daniel Pistelli : GTR2 is more than 10 years old now and keep on using this old precious DVD of GTR2 in the DVD tray may possibly get it scratched/damaged. Moreover, this no-cd was available during more than 10 years at nogrip and RD so I suppose that SIMBIN tolerates its usage. So for both reasons, I decided to include it in order to make a full single patch with 4GB PATCH (works whatever amount of RAM, this patch allows to use more than default 1.8GB RAM)

In order to avoid on-line mismatch, some advanced patches/fixes are not available for stock cars/tracks but only for HQ Cars & Tracks when you select them in menu :
> fixed Donington pitcrew position, added Oschersleben startlights fix by derDumeklemmer, fixed Donington/Enna max vehicles, adusted AI qualification/race speed, fixed Oschersleben safety car position, fixed GDB championships in order to skip Qualif.1 (to avoid random grid bug), added zbuffer shadow in CAS files (gives more fps with New Gfx by Syhlif32), increased seat position range, adjusted driver position for all cars to avoid glitches such as driver in mirror (especially shoulders), hands collisions with legs when turning steering wheel, hand and shift stick collisions. Unfortunately some cars have not got enough space for legs so you may still see collision glitches with feet/floor especially when you use pedals (sometimes I had to choose only one collision to remove : either hands/legs or feet/floor, I have chosen the first one as this is closer view).

> HQ tyres : First, many thanks to my beta testers for their feedback, initially Syhlif32 was the first to show me the way, then Shovas gave me precious feedback and more recently TzZyO gave me tips to improve them. I have spent quite a year of work on these HQ tyres with thousands of test laps : 38 different tyres * 6 compounds * 4 laps minimum to reach optimum tyre temperatures = 912 test laps each time you modify values in TYR files !
And now you ask why I did that ? Simply because I have always found that stock tyres have got too much grip in dry conditions and very weak grip in wet conditions, so I reduced grip in dry and I increased grip in wet. My tyres are a lot more hardcore to play in dry weather, especially with hard compounds, so remember these advices : HQ tyres need at least 3 laps to reach optimum temperature in order to gain max grip, so be nice on accelerator the first 3 laps and especially the first one. Be careful with accelerator in corners/curves (just imagine driving with an egg under accelerator), when you see the car starting to slip from back end then release accelerator and adjust only center of steering wheel in direction of the track, and only when your car is stabilized, progressively re-accelerate. As stock tyres have got glue effect, you may never used traction control with vanilla game, but with HQ tyres I recommend to enable traction control, at least on low, if you cannot stay on track or if you use keyboard/joypad controller (steering wheel is highly recommended though). Moreover, medium compounds are set by default so select soft compounds to gain extra grip, or in contrary select hard compounds if you like drift.

PnG3 note :
-----------
as many patches are dedicated to stock GTR2 cars, you can only install this GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch over PnG install if you have kept GTR2 cars : if you have chosen "slim down existing install" then you will get CTD !!! Moreover you will lose nice PnG3 UI.
For PnG3, I recommend my GTR2 HQ MODS COLLECTION as you can selectively install PnG compatible mods/patches whether you have kept GTR2 stock cars or not : https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/gtr2-hq-mods-collection.152457/.
