Starter Guide to Street Legal Racing Redline



In this guide i will explain all the basics on SLRR
(street legal racing redline) modding like how to
install cars, how to install parts, how to find errors
and which version to choose from.

Lets start with the versions of the game - thanks to onedownone2go



2.2.1. stock

+ all javas available (this only counts if you want to mod javas yourself

- only few car-add-ons available
- no add-on tracks
- bad memory management
- bad gfx-performance (compared to other versions)
- not compatible with add-ons for other versions
- no automatic conversion-tool available

2.2.1 MWM

+ many add-on cars available
+ many add-ons available in general
+ addon-tracks available
+ opponent-races or races against the clock on several addon-tracks
+ memory-management fixed
+ improved gfx-performance
+ can run in windowed mode

- not all javas available for modders
- does not support 2.3.0LE-add-ons natively
- no migration-tool for add-ons from other versions available
- less eye-candy then 2.3.0LE

2.2.1 LE2MWM

+ many add-on cars available
+ many add-ons available in general
+ addon-tracks available
+ opponent-races or races against the clock on several addon-tracks
+ memory-management fixed
+ improved gfx-performance
+ can run in windowed mode
+ support for 2.3.0LE-add-ons included
+ no conversion of add-ons needed (except you want to stick with the catalog-structure of MWM)

- not all javas available for modders
- less eye-candy then 2.3.0LE

2.3.0LE

+ many add-on cars available
+ many add-ons available in general
+ memory-management fixed
+ improved gfx-performance
+ toool for automatic conversion of add-ons available (B.O.R.A.T. 1.0)
+ has lot's of eye-candy

~ extensively modified GUI - that's a matter of taste, but it can be modified to match your personal needs

- not all javas available for modders
- no add-on tracks
- does not support windowed mode (or I did not find the option .. ;-) )

- Out of my personal experience i would recommend
using version 2.2.1MWM which supports all the extra
tracks and new mods are also made for it instead of
the other versions.



Ok the problem with errors mainly is people installing
10's or more mods all at once then they mix up and can't
find what actually causes the game to crash at certain parts
so the main way to prevent the errors is installing mod-by-mod
this means you install a single mod be it wheels/engines/cars
and go test the game out like dealers, catalogues and checking
that the mod is self is working correctly

to find an error log in case you get some random but rare
crashes you will need to locate to the game directory
- the game directory is where your game is installed for
e.g. x/program files/activision/street legal racing redline/ the
"street legal racing redline" folder will be the root directory
for game files.

the file you need to take a look in case of crash is "error.log"
you can open it with notepad

for e.g.

!Package conflict: multiple packages placed at the
same location ( at cars\racers\eunos_data\scripts)

this is a line from the error.log file what you can see
in here is that the EUNOS mod causes the package conflict
and you can actually see where it is located so if you
want to remove the error you will need to delete the mod
or find the problem - always check the downloads
comments/the download it self for fixes :)

sometimes though you will find errors in your error log
even if the game is not crashing so you might as well
just ignore them :) - if you get mixed up with a bunch
of errors simply select all the text in the error.log
file, delete it and save it once the error happens again
you will find the exact problem

there is chance that the error will not be displayed in
the error log if you get this its best to think of a
problematic mod.. like mod with parts missing/not renamed
etc as those modders normally don't bother with javas and
making the game work properly for everyone

Installing Parts/Cars/Engines etc




now lets say you downloaded a Nissan GTR from vstanced
and you extract the archive on your desktop and inside
the folder you find 2 files - one will be a folder called
gtrvspec_data and other will be a file called gtrvspec.rpk

these two "bits" will need to be copied to root/cars/racers folder

so you will be copying both folder and the file to that
directory after that you will be done with installation
of the mod - now go to test it out ;)



Similiar like cars except they have their own directory
in game folder called "parts" you normally get a "read me"
file with the mod you download which contains all the info
you need like the installation path so for rims you will
need to drag and drop the folder and the .rpk file to the
Parts directory and it should be installed - ignore the
"parts/wheels" folder that is rarely if ever used for mods :)



Tracks only work with 2.2.1 MWM and LE2MWM patches they
DO NOT WORK with 2.3.0 LE :) once you open the archive
you will normally have a folder and an rpk - same as cars
and other mods. what you need to do is to copy these 2
files(.rpk and folder) to ROOT/Maps/Addon_maps/ folder.
After copying them over just start up your game and once
you go for a test drive you will be able to choose which
track to drive on - some tracks will have options like
opponents/no opponents/drift scores etc(rest of the info
will be in download description or READ ME file of the download)




same as Wheels they go into parts folder except that
you need to copy them to the sub-folder - engines

so again you will have a folder and a .rpk file ready
after you extract the mod these files will need to be
copied to root/parts/engines folder

most of the cars will not accept your engine to install
so you will need to use "SLREditor" to use the engines
with the cars you want - download HERE the application
is easy to use so i won't be explaining more about it,
you can also use it to place the parts like batteries,
wheels, engines and so on :)




replacing files can be DANGEROUS because you might have
a messed up file and your game won't work after that :)
the good thing to do is install slrr again in a different
directory patch it to the main version of your MAIN game
for e.g. 2.2.1mwm and keep it completely clean without
mods so incase of loosing a file you can simply copy
and paste over your main game.

always make a backup too if you can't be bothered to
install another SLRR



DOWNLOAD THE GAME

I would like to download "2.2.1 MWM - with a patch already installed - recommended".
But I think that the link goes to some other version.

Yes, this article is still a work in progress but I decided to leave it open live as it can still help people while we are working on it.
