I'll put Overhaul 2.0 to shift 1 as it solves many problems also. Keep in mind I'm using a controller/gamepad, so maybe shift 2 modded is better but it's aimed for wheel users (as PTMu states in the description) so I'll probably stick around with shift.

In case you missed my post. Check this out for the 1st game.

I did everything and then just put all of the files back into my shift 1 steam folder and the modded game starts up just as if it were the steam version of it.


Let me know if you need any help with anything. thumb.gif

Not at all... then thousands of people would get banned for modding Skyrim... Oblivion... and they would not even promote it by having the steam workshop.

I have 100s of games modded and have never had an issue. thumb.gif

I don't think steam cares at all, I am sure it's all up to the actual game to ban you, steam distributes games, its not like gamestop bans you if you mod a game tongue.gif

I saw it, thank you so much. But I changed my mind recently. I decided to go for Dirt 2, I liked a lot Dirt 3 but I've reading a lot of comments saying Dirt 2 is much better because it's more racing focus rather than all the Gymkhana stuff (which I hated, I dropped out the career mode because they force you to do them in order to advance). Also, I kind of feel like playing something arcade-y right now, and not so serious stuff like Shift.

Besides, there's another reason (completely unrelated to this). My hdd is dying, and reducing performance every day. When I installed HD mods for skyrim loading screens took almost eternity. In about a month I think I'm getting a new one, so that's where I'll do all that unpacking ("heavy" stuff) and that HD visuals.

Anyway, I have bookmarked your post for later need, thanks biggrin.gif

Ok, so I got tired of dirt 2, and I decided to try Shift moded. I like it so far, overhaul goes fine with gamepad, the ai is kind of aggressive which I like a lot. However, I'm not comfortable with physics. I don't like the feeling of pseudo-drift in every large corner. I almost never hit the apexes, and unless I don't have dynamic racing line, (maybe it's because I'm used to F1 which requires to know perfectly the circuit and I can't do that here because they change the circuit every event) I have to restart the race for about 5 times. It's not that the ai beats me, it's that I don't know the track and physics don't help me.


Really, I keep playing because I have nothing else to play right know (I would try Shif 2 but I read physics are actually worse). Any chance overhaul is causing this?

That's just how Shift handles, everything wants to slide like you're playing Burnout. Certain cars are better than others, perhaps try and stick to the 4WD cars instead.

Iracing is easily the best racing game I have ever played. I have grid grid 2 dirt 1 2 3 also formula 2010 2011 2013 and used to play hours and hours of LFS and they are all fun games but feel nothing like the real thing. Iracing is as close to the real thing as you can get and, the rating system makes moving up to different licenses a really rewarding feeling. Honestly cannot recommend any other game.
