Hi kids,
Just made an observation. I've been using the Steam .exe for a few GTR2 installs because I heard it might be better. Well, I do a lot of testing/fucking around, and when you crash a GTR2 install with the Steam exe, it can leave GIGS of "crashdump" files. I just recently found almost 249gb of minidump files from this exe. If you just play, and don't any dev/mod stuff. you're probably ok. If you crash an install a lot with this exe, check for a Minidump folder in your LOG folder, you may be surprised.......

PostSubject: MiniDump fix for those running crewchief   Minidumps and the new GTR2 exe EmptyThu 06 Jul 2023, 7:02 am


Fix for minidumps by the iron wolf for those running crewchief located in the Crewcheif.ini file:

Set this to 1 to disable minidump collection on crash.
disableCrashDump = 1

This will help avoiding stressing your SSD with gigs of data written all the time, which as you said is common to happen while working on the new stuff Wink

I have a question on the Steam version of GTR2...the only advantage I see is that Crewchief works only with steam. I have multiple installs of GTR2 running various carsets including Power & Glory--can these carsets be installed with steam or does it run the plain vanilla version cars only?

Everything will work on the steam version of GTR2 including PnG3 I recently converted my complete master GTR2 install to Png3 adding the latest anniversary patch then Crewcheif.

Make a copy of your install of GTR2 first rename it to "GTR2 Modified" and work on that as a test
The steam version of GTR2 costs £1.24p just looked

ignoring CC plugins,

the big plus of the STEAM EXE is it is more stable on switching between tasks (ALT TAB) without running in a window
it does also behave better on the CONFIGURATION side

big minus is that it is not compatible with XD

For folks who want XD-like experience on Steam there's alternative:  SHO GTR2 XD Style SimHub Overlays - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmdyiMauHTI&t=158s

It is not exact replacement and will require learning doing things the new way, but it is under development and Shovas (author) is very responsive to suggestions.  For best experience with this overlay Crew Chief GTR2 Enhancements Plugin is still recommended, because it fixes some telemetry bugs in GTR2 (and many other bugs in the game).  It may be confusing, but plugin doesn't just "enable Crew Chief or VR" it does tons of things to improve GTR2 and work is still ongoing.

There are some things that work differently on Steam .exe vs DVD, but in 5 years I noticed just two issues and I never had issues that prevented enjoying the content I race.  Also plugin is not tied to vanilla content, it should work on most content (it works flawless on P&G, in fact it adds revmatching and gear damage to old cars if you want that) but there are no guarantees of any kind.
