    I'm making a lightweight backup install that I can reuse for individual mods but running into a few issues. I've deleted a few un-needed files like the intro movies etc and the Locations folder (I'm pointing the Config file to another locations directory) and all works fine to this point.

    However If I try to point to another Vehicles directory I get MAS loading errors. Or if I just remove some of the stock vehicles I don't use, the game will crash when scrolling through the car selection menu.

    A question too, I use the 2008 DVD Special Edition version, is the 1255F patch recommended or compatible with this version of the game?

    Many thanks.

    rF Lite wont work for some reason even with the disc in the drive. I'm guessing it's because its a digital version that requires registering and I don't fancy buying the game twice lol

    Never considered that would work so never tried, but lo and behold it does. Now have a 125mb install, thanks!
