Does it need a clean install? Or can you add it to the existing P&G install?

you will find 3 options in the installer  .....it is very very easy to install  no messing around  you will see what i mean when you start the install ;)

If you have the three parts download version, you just need to have the three parts in same directory, then select to decompress the first one.
Don't worry, it will decompress from the other two parts as well. ;)

It will create one big installer with name "PnGv2.0_installer.exe", which is what you'll run to install P&G v2.0 (and then just follow the options).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you're a newcomer to P&G and GTR2, then we do strongly recommend a fresh installation of GTR2 patched to 1.1.0.0, ready to receive P&G v2.0 (and only that), prior to the mod installation.

Once the P&G v2.0 installer is started, select installation option #2.
P&G v2.0 will be installed in there, and all the unnecessary old GTR2 content will be deleted as well.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you've been a GTR2 user, and wish to maintain add-on tracks and such, just make sure to uninstall any older versions of P&G prior to anything (this is, IF you have any installed).

Once the P&G v2.0 installer is started, select installation option #1, it will transfer your player profile options and add-on tracks (from an older GTR2 installation selected by you), all going into a separate installation just for P&Gv2.0.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In both cases, the GT-Legends CD/DVD disk should be in the tray before initiating the installation of P&G v2.0, so that it's ready to respond when its presence is asked by the installer, to then proceed with the installation.

All the various installer options are very easy to follow, should be absolutly fine for anyone, it's all really that simple.
Still, any problems, please post about it, we will try to help asap! :)



BTW, many many thanks to SJ colaboration during P&G v2.0 construction, also for kindly providing mirrors for downloads. ...P&G V2.0 is also result of your assistance too!  thumbs up 

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY! ...hope to see you online in one of these magnificent beasts!  :hats off:

 Okay, so I got it me thinks. Am I to assume the installer somehow used the 2nd and third rar's automatically?

 It seems the SJ download area only has prt1 in all 3 mirrors.......


 And I do so love this 'Tina.....

 Thanks to all who worked so hard on this. And thanks Lucio for coming and posting here.

 Hmm, I thought I had installed it in my old P&G folder and discovered it went to program files. (I have an additional GTR2 folder where all my GTR2 installs "live") Just moved it there and reaimed the desktop icon.

 I know I had copied the GTR2 info from my main GTR2 install if that helps at all...??? I know too I had tried 2 of the options before finding one that worked for me.

fantastic mod, big big thanks to the people bringing it to us :)

for the guys having problem with the installer. I might be wrong but i think it's vista related (if you dont run vista sorry then im very wrong)

From Drokk post it seems you are trying to install it into the 'program files' folder, that folder has 'terrible' restrictions under vista if you have 'UAC' running. An idea would try to turn it off (to disable UAC on vista just google and you'll find info about it) or try to install P&G into another folder but not 'program files'. Be also sure to run the installer with 'Administrator' rights (right click + run as administrator).

UAC is just a good security feature imo, anyway I have Vista 64bits and you don't need to do anything special like running the installer as administrator because you will be asked if you give permission for the installer to continue by UAC.  :)

I think one of the options now will "take" the info needed from your GTR2 install and make a separate P&G install if I understand it right. I think that's what happened to mine and why it went to program files. Also, have your copy of GTL in the drive when you do for the disc check.
