This makes switching the drivers and changing the language soooo easy... perfect for the lazy ones like me ;)
Thank you very much for making Vegs patch even more accessible for eveyone!

small thing - that nfs3setup what i posted here has really small piece of code (on the other hand SetupMP does not) :D

Looks good :)
Definitely increases ergonomics of the Modern Patch.

So it will be one tool for both games?

Btw, if you are looking for the NFS4 font, you can grabt it here for free:
http://opti.netii.net/fonts-i/index.htm
"Iambic Heavy Italic" (capital letters only)

Greetings

NICE!!!, thanks, i couldn't find that font! (btw it has upper and lowercase > https://ctrlv.cz/xkm7)

Yes, it is one program for both games.



btw does anyone know where i could download font for NFS3? that what i used is pretty close -> ESP Earth.ttf

I also want to know what Prefer32bitModes and Variant does in nfs4.ini?

And what is text.CMT and text.MET in NFS4

Yes, i meant ingame only lowercase is used ... "typo" - but you got it right. Looks great :)
One setup for both, okay - will it autodetect the game by nfs3.ini and nfs4.ini?
Prefer32bitModes - most likely a setting for color depth (for menu?). Guess Veg has to clarify that himself, since its not mentioned in the readme. Same goes with Variant.

For text.CMT and text.MET (both are in english language) - field test: deleted files - NFS runs normally. My guess is, these are some kind of "trash" leftovers, like the plac.viv in Data folder.

edit: just try to rename text.met to text.eng - its normal english menu, but some buttons are not labeled -> unfinished text file

It checks if nfs3.exe or nfs4.exe is present... this setup will work only if files from modern patchs arent modified/renamed

Another update on this "was supposed to be small utility for nfs3" setup :D
I know what you mean. The Mixer was planned to be a simple tool to exchange standard tracks, to get other knockout races. I wasn't thinking of adding tracks or cars at all.

I just tested you setupMP and it works fine here on Win 10 64 Bit. I played around with the Trash Driver and other settings. Nice that you have a advanced menu there.

Just one thing, it allowed me to set the language to german without having the german speech files. So the game was very silent. Maybe you could add checks for the speech folders and disable the ones not available.
