I've modified the Mixer that it no longer need the registry to look for NFS and don't uses it to store data. The program is almost portable now. You can move the HS folder, rename or copy it. The Mixer just needs to be in a sub folder of the game directory. But it still needs some DLLs to run, you have to install them once. That's why I split the setup in two parts.

First select what you want to install. If you have copied this Mixer version from somewhere you may just need to install the DLLs. If you upgrade from a previous version be sure you switched to standard tracklist first.


If you install the Mixer, select the NFS4 directory. The Setup will create a 'Mixer' sub folder there.

So if i understand it right, installer do two things... install dlls somewhere into windows and put mixer exe into mixer subfolder whatever i choose to install it

And when i want i can copy it into another NFS4 folder with modern patch and it will work.

Good to see you still update the mixer.

Is it possible to add a column in the carmanager which tells you if a vidwall/showcase exists?

The Mixer needs two things:
- Beeing in a subfolder of the game.
- Those DLLs installed.

Awesome update. The Mixer now perfectly cooperates with the modern patch.
Running multiple instances with different archives is no problem anymore.

I guess I know why NFS3 Scene Selector and NFS 3 Manager does not work for me. Registry issues. Great job though, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to using this.

One more thing, if NFS4 is installed in a path where changes can be made without Administrator privileges you can delete the "Mixer.exe.manifest" file. Afterwards the Mixer will run with user rights.

    Stupid blunt claws.
Jim, I would like to point out there is a very simple way to make the Mixer full portable: just put the required dlls into the Mixer folder (Windows allows that way of loading dlls)
