perfection. thx
Thank you very much for this mod collection.
Thank you very much! I've been following this project since nogripracing :)
A lot of great enhancements for GTR2
Thank You
Thank you but oh god this need tutorial to install, i am new to GTR 2 :/
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 :)
GTR2 HQ Mods Collection is a must have for all GTR2 fans!
thanly you for sharing! excellent enhancements. very useful and eyecandy for 3k/4k gaming
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!
Glad to have news from you, no problem I will add your new name in next v9.7 for Xmas ;)
Great work

Thank You
Thanks for uploading here
thank you。Do you have a rfactor edition?
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.
