step by step instructions for how to install rFactor and associated mods


Install rFactor

  1. install rFactor v1150
    •  note that it includes a DirectX update that is required (even though it says DirectX 9.0c, it's really an update to 9.0c)

Configure rFactor

  1. run the rFactor config tool to set the basic graphics options: <rFactor>\rF Config.exe

Compilation Mod

In lieue of most of the following individual pieces of content, you might seriously consider using the NegativeSum Compilation Mod for rFactor.   Stay tuned for more info...

Tracks

A1 Ring

Bahrain International

  • install v1.0: extract Bahrain_v1.0_CTDP.zip (mirrors) to <rFactor>\GameData\Locations (note - the mirror files have the wrong relative path, so you can't just extract directly)

Birmingham Motorplex

Brands Hatch

Brianza

Cadwell Park

Grand Valley

  • install v1.0p: extract GrandValley_1.0P.zip (mirrors) to <rFactor>\GameData\Locations (note - the mirror files have the wrong relative path, so you can't just extract directly)

GP2

  • install v1.0: extract Gp2_Series_Release.rar (mirrors) and run 'GP2 SERIES MOD v1.00.exe'
  • note: this overwrites the original rFactor Uninstall.exe file in <rFactor>, so don't run the resulting uninstall link in the windows Start Menu or you'll likely uninstall all of rFactor (bad mod developers!)

  • install v1.0: extract Formula_One_2005_by_CTDP_V1.0.zip (mirrors) and run Formula_One_2005_by_CTDP_V1.0.exe
  • note: be sure to deselect the MoTeC plugin for the install (we'll install an updated version)
  • even though we didn't install the MoTeC plugin, the F12005 install will still ask which player profile you'd like to have configured correctly for MoTeC support -- so let it
  • run <rFactor>ctdpconfig.exe

Skoda Octavia Cup (GSC)

  • install v1.0: extract GSC_1.0_DSC.rar (mirrors) to <rFactor>

  • install the sound update:

VW Beetle Race


Zonda

  • install v1.0: extract ZondaRS_1.150_JvsI.zip (mirrors) to <rFactor> (note - the mirror files have the wrong relative path, so you can't just extract directly)
