If you want a complete reinstall i would install the full 1255 (about 1GB) and if possible save your locations folder and userdata ( for your setups and tracks)
after the new install just install the mods you like and copy the locations and userdata folders back again ( saves a lot of time).
Good luck m8 :thumb:
If your interested in the stock mods go for the full version, but if your just going to use add on mods go for the lite version and just download the stock tracks if needed. (1gb full version, 100mb rf lite, )
Lite is for those players primarily interested in community made content, or for those on slower internet connections. It can also act a convenient backup for regular players wishing to make hassle free fresh installs. or multiple rFactor installs. (copy and past I know ound
Don't know if it's still usefull, but the most important thing hasn't been mentioned yet: Trymedia License! Backup this folder and put it back in the same place on your clean install, else you need to get a new activation code etc by mail from ISI which can take a few days.
1: Keep your standard rFactor folder as it is. 2: Download the rFactor1255 Lite and sound files to a temp folder: rFactor Lite and Sounds
3: Install the rFactor Lite to a temp folder called something along the lines "rF1255install" 4: Unpack and copy the sounds to the same folder. Be sure to check that the sounds are in the gamedata\sounds folder. 5: Make an subfolder inside the "rF1255install" folder called "install" 6: Copy your driver from the original rFactor install to the corresponding folder. 7: If you use plugins, copy them to the install folder for now. (No use using the if the mod don't support them. 8: Compress the folder "rFactor1255install". Now you have a base install for all your needs. 9: Save the file somewhere safe. 10: Rename the original rFactor install to rFactorOrg or something.
Part Two, Installation of mod and tracks.
1: Unpack your "rFactor1255install.zip/7z/rar" to a folder called rFGRCC for example. 2: If the mod is a just a compressed file the copy the file into the install folder in your rFGRCC install. 3: If the mod come as an install, make a folder named rFactor and install it there. (remember to rename your original rFactor install, see above) 4: Tracks, can be done in two ways.
4:1 Do as above as with the mod if you need custom tracks.
4:2 If you already have the track change the config.ini to point to your original rFactor install. (change TracksDir=GAMEDATA\LOCATIONS\ to TracksDir=D:\games\rFactorORG\GAMEDATA\LOCATIONS\) or similar. 5: If you have custom skies, copy them as well to the same folder. 6: Copy all the stuff you have in your install folder (rFGRCC\install) to all the other corresponding folders. 7: Copy all plugins and setting files to the plugin folder. 8: Don't forget to run the "rF Config" to set the graphic options. 9: Voila! Now you have a pristine rFactor mod install.
