2004RH Expansionpack 4 F1C99-02 v1.05 [33.9 MiB] 28 Apr 05
the same file as above but splitted into 3x10 MB packages:
[Part_01/03] [Part_02/03] [Part_03/03]
This package provides all chassis and livery versions of the F1 Season 2004 as seen until the Brazil Grand Prix 2004. That means you get all the different Jordans, Williams and Minardis we have already seen during the season. This Pack incudes also the special Monaco livery of Jaguar as well as the non tobacco cars we have seen in Montreal, Indianapolis, Silverstone and Magny Cours.
This package contains all chassis versions the the final GP in Brazil. This means it contains McLaren MP 4/19 B, and B-versions of Williams, Sauber and Toyota.
Because it is not possible to create dynamic driver switches during a running Season, we had to make some compromises. So each team still has the drivers who made the most races for it; this means Ralf Schumacher is driving each race for Williams, as well as DaMatta for Toyota and Pantano for Jordan.
Requirements [Please READ!]:
Preparation:
  • You need to have Season 2004 RH v1.05 installed. When you have a older version of RH04 installed on your System, then please update first your RH04 BASE installation, before you will install the v1.05 Expansionpack.
  • Additional 2.7 GB free disk space on the drive where the F1C'99-'02 game is installed (really you need two point seven gig!).
Installation:
  • Just start the '2004rh_4_f1c99-02_expansion.exe' (make sure that all the '2004rh_4_f1c99-02_expansion.c*' are located in the same directory.) Select your F1C99-02 installation directory (if it is not automatically selected already) and press the 'Next' button. After the Installer have copied all files to your HD a helper application will be executed that will take care of extracting the apropriate files to the different directories (that can take a while since 2.7 GB have to be written).
Running:
  • Just select your 2004 Team and select the a track. All track dependant shapes & textures will be loaded automatically.
  • Please note, that the NT, NA, BSpec Cars and other special edition cars are not visible in the car selection spinner - these liveries will be automatically loaded when you drive on the specific tracks [MON, CAN, FRA, GB, USA and all the other late season GP's].

High polygon count' Tire update (for smoother tires)...
[the file is now included in the BASE v1.05] [none] 02 Apr 05
This package provides higher polygon count tires in a default and a wall shine version. You can see the difference when you look at the images below [even if the image shows the Season 2003 Minardi the shine effects will be identical to the Season 2004 versions]:
The Default Version
This Version comes with a subtile shine - the tires will look like they are used and have shining grooves.

[click to enlarge]

The Wall Shine Version
The In contrast to the 'default' version, this pack comes with massive shining tire walls. The tires will almost look like on the car presentations.

[click to enlarge]

Additionally to the two high polygon count versions this package contains an installer to get back to the default RH04 BASE tires. When you realize that the high polygon count tires will eat up too much performance of your system, you simply can GO BACK to the default tires with a simple single click.
Requirements [Please READ!]:
Preparation:
  • You need to have Season 2004 RH v1.0 (or higher) installed.
  • NO additional hard disk space on the drive is required.
Installation:
  • First decide what version of the HighPoly Count Tire update you like to install on your F1C99-02 Season 2004RH.
  • Use the '2004rh_4_f1c99-02_HighPoly_Default.exe' file when you simply want to have smoother tire shapes with the same optical effects then the tires that are included in the 2004RH BASE Package..
  • Use the '2004rh_4_f1c99-02_HighPoly_Wallshine.exe' Installer when you want to have tires with massive shining tire walls (no EMAP is used).
Uninstall:
  • When you realize, that your PC is not capable to run on of these packages, then you simply can run the '2004rh_4_f1c99-02_LowPoly_RH04org.exe' installer and you go back to the tire shape version that is included in the original RH04 BASE INSTALLATION PACKAGE. So you can try this ADDON without any worries since it can be simply uninstalled again by using the '2004rh_4_f1c99-02_LowPoly_RH04org.exe' installer.
