SPECIAL THANKS to all people who worked for Blimey! Games & SimBin Sweden : David Wright, DucFreak, Doug Arnao, Mark Reynolds, Eric Boosman... and the big bosses Henrik Roos & Ian Bell for having made such legendary sims !
Developped on Dell Inspiron 531 Athlon64x2 5600+ (dual core 2.8GHz) with nvidia 9800GT 512Mo (8800/9800GT were the high end nvidia card when GTR2 was released so I do not recommend this mod with poor Intel integrated graphics but it will work great with last AMD APU 3200G-Vega8 and above as tested by my friend DurgeDriven).
This GTR2 HQ Anniversary PATCH represents 5 years of work (nearly 10 000 FILES!!!) and includes all the necessary MODS/PATCHES for GTR2 plus tons of HQ textures. There are 2 games in 1, first the default 2003-2004 game with stock cars and tracks which get only few textures updates, second the HQ Cars&Tracks (with "HQ" prefix in menu) which get ALL the fixes/patches, more HQ textures plus exclusive graphics (both 2D/3D) : indeed, my will is to keep original game untouched to avoid online mismatch on internet and to see all the work done so far in this HQ Anniversary Patch when you compare both.
