Advice on a clean re-install of RF2
« on: November 07, 2018, 03:06:00 pm »
I have had to install a new SSD after the previous one died.
So a new install of Win 10... and every thing else I had on that drive.
The RF2 install on that old SSD was quite bloated with a bunch of mods, tracks and cars I really didn't use.
I would like to do a new install (with just what I need for this league for example) of RF2 but I'm not sure exactly how to go about it correctly... with Steam Workshop
I've been googling around for that info but thought I would ask here too,
Thanks in advance!

Best thing to do is check on which Steam workshop mods you are subscribed to. unsubscribe to any mods you no longer wish to use. Once you have done that Steam will take care of all the necessary mod downloads from the workshop. Also make sure to backup your user data folder since that contains the custom wheel files and settings.

Make sure you have a beverage and snack. The install and mod dl will take a very long time.

LOL
yea, I was up til almost midnight dink'n around with it  ;D
Went online for a bit this morning to test online, I think I have it all back to where it was before, maybe a Little bit of tweaking the graphics and the Thrustmaster T300 settings.

Got a 3 day weekend so I hoped to get the system running good and get some practice in on the Mclaren  :)

Should be under settings. I'm here on the right hand side of the garage menu. There should be an option for wheel only view.
