Dedicated P&G installation
« on: April 02, 2008, 01:10:03 pm »
DucFreak has posted a step by step guide to creating a dedicated GTR2/P&G installation over at No-Grip

I had problems initially with 'incompatible game version', but that was because I'm a knob and used the wrong no-dvd patch :)
The only other thing of note is that I didn't rename the .exe. I didn't see a reason for it and it would mean buggering about with other software.

If you decide on the above you do get a nice slick and snappy installation for P&G releases available today and in the future.

I like it...  effectively creating a new game called GTR2/P&G.

Cheers Pete and Mr Freak.

 That's the way I always understood it to be done, just never understood how. Ther tutorial is very well written and I'm downloading the mod as I write this. Second install of GTR2 or should I say GTR2_PnG (LOL) is ready. YAAAY! thumbs up

:grrr:  Well, I guess I won't be joining you fast catz anytime soon.   :grrr:

Got the 3 part download, ran it  to make 1 file, it verified the files, started up, and when it got to gtl dvd, got error it could not find it and canceled install.  All this while autorun has the GTL menu in front of my eyes on the screen.  Tried w/ autorun off as well.  Jiggled cables, chked the bios...aaaaaggghh!!

Yes, I have a virgin gtr2 install, a REAL copy of GTL, but no more patience.  I will go back to working on the Sim Junkies Polka....I'm out.   thumbs down

   Help!
