    11) GTR2 HQ LENS FLARE by GTR233
    ----------------------
    Fully compatible with PnG3 and GTR2 demo

    14) GTR2 HQ PIT & START LIGHTS by GTR233
    ------------------------------
    Fully compatible with PnG3 and GTR2 demo

    Work only with standard GTR2 lights (work with all GTR2 default tracks), so it might not work (no lights or wrong light position) with modded tracks which do not use the same kind of lights, in this case then just delete the 8 dds files from the track folder. Or use the second install option with Geditor : no compatibility issue with this method.

    Installation :
    Easy method
    a- Choose between styles (GT/F1/FANCY) then copy all 8 dds files into each circuit folder (\GameData\Locations\TRACKNAME\)

    or
    Recommended method
    a'- Make a copy of misc.gtr file (make a zip/rar archive by example) located in \GameData\Locations\Shared
    b'- Copy 8 DDS files into misc.gtr with Geditor


    Uninstallation :
    - if you have chosen easy method then delete
    \GameData\Locations\TRACKNAME\PTLIT01.DDS
    \GameData\Locations\TRACKNAME\PTLIT02.DDS
    \GameData\Locations\TRACKNAME\PTLIT03.DDS

    or

    - if you have chosen recommended method then restore your misc.gtr file


    15) GTR2 HQ RAIN by ArmedLightning-GTR233
    ----------------
    Fully compatible with PnG3 and GTR2 demo

    Installation :
    - Copy the folder content in your GTR2 directory (overwrite \GameData folder)
    NB: to do screenshots without raindrops, make pause then hit page-up or page-down several times in order to generate new rain map

    Uninstallation :

    16) GTR2 HQ SCREEN DIRT by GTR233
    -----------------------
    Compatible with PnG3 install option 3 only (default GTR2 cars required) and demo

    NB1: my skins use standard GTR2 windows so they will work for all mods which respect GTR2 windows format !!!
    NB2: remove all SCREEN_DIRT00/05.DDS from GameData\Teams\ directory (FOR ALL CARS option) to fix the black windows bug when you install 3rd party mods which are not converted properly with same windows format as GTR2. Side effect is that all other 3rd party mods which are properly made (99% mods) will not benefit anymore from HQ dirt screen textures (i.e. WSGT, SGT500, etc...). Nevertheless, you can still have the black windows bug if you run 3rd party mods with a mix of cars from GTR2 windows format and non-GTR2 windows format : probably due to material textures conflicts inside the mod itself (if modder is not able to fix his mod then an alternative solution is to disable windshield view in GTR2 menu).

    Installation :
    - 2 OPTIONS : FOR ALL CARS (skins will be stored in GameData\Teams dir so it will affect ALL 3rd party mods too : nevertheless few 3rd party mods do not use same windows format as GTR2 and will show black windows, so do not use this option if you have installed these kind of mods) or FOR GTR2 CARS ONLY (skins will be stored in dedicated car teams folders so it will NOT affect 3rd party mods)
    - Copy the folder content in your GTR2 directory (overwrite \GameData folder)

    Uninstallation FOR ALL CARS :
    - Delete
    \GameData\Teams\SCREEN_DIRT00.DDS
    \GameData\Teams\SCREEN_DIRT01.DDS
    \GameData\Teams\SCREEN_DIRT02.DDS
    \GameData\Teams\SCREEN_DIRT03.DDS
    \GameData\Teams\SCREEN_DIRT04.DDS
    \GameData\Teams\SCREEN_DIRT05.DDS

    Uninstallation FOR GTR2 CARS ONLY :
    - use windows search engine to find "SCREEN_DIRT" then select all DDS files found to delete them


    17) GTR2 HQ SPARCO SUITS 2018 by GTR233 for DDS skins and Art/Scorpyo/Syhlif32 for GMT
    -----------------------------
    Fully compatible with PnG3 and GTR2 demo

    - copy "GameData" folder into your GTR2 directory (click yes to overwrite GameData folder)

    -----------------------
    Compatible with PnG3 install option 3 only (default GTR2 cars required) and demo

    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.

    Installation :
    ATTENTION: UIAssets.GTR will be overwritten so make a backup first !!!
    - backup (make a zip/rar/7z archive) GTR2\UIData\UIAssets.GTR

      There is a long readme with explanations. If you are new to GTR2 then I suggest you to install GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch which includes quite all HQ MODS in one single install, the only option will be language files :)

    Glad to see you've found a new home after the demise of NoGrip. Once again this mod makes the stock content for GTR2 look excellent. Even from the old 9.5 to 9.6 there's a very noticeable difference. A definite must-have.

    I was looking forward for this update, but then NoGripRacing went down. BTW, my nickname was Razgriz back then at NoGripRacing. I had to change username since it's already being used here. So, if you can, please fix my name in the credits' list. Thank you to everyone involved for the hard work!

      Author's Response
      No, sorry I have never fallen in love with rf1, GTR2 is based on rf1 but includes many major updates and quite all rf1 mods have been converted to GTR2 so I have never had the feeling of missing something.
