    Welcome new member to SRD and thanks for joining this community!

    So.......you've read the forum rules on how to conduct yourself at SRD have you? Okay then, assuming you have, here is your NR2003 guide and our way of spoon feeding you what you need to know and how you should proceed with your NR2003 racing experience. Before you dive right in the forums here are some useful links and information that will help you find what you might be looking for. If you are just getting back into NR2003 (or just got it for the first time) this guide will help you find the right resources in the right places. It will also go over some forum etiquette of what to do and not to do to ensure everyone in the community can enjoy a spam free forum. So let's begin shall we?

    Common questions asked about getting NR2003 set up

    Question: I just got NR2003 what do I need to install so I can use add-ons like mods and stuff?

    Answer: To be able to install mods, tracks, and other add-ons to NR2003 you will need the nr2003 patch You can download the patch here: NR2003 patch

    Question: I am on Windows Vista/7/8 and I have the game installed with the patch but it keeps crashing when I try to race, what can I do to fix this?

    There is another sticky thread in the NR2003 General Discussion forum that has your solution. You can read about that here http://www.simracingdesign.com/nr2003-general-discussion/44039-windows-7-8-no-cd-patch-solution.html

    Question: So I have the game installed and it is working great! Where can I find add-ons for the game / which ones are the best to add?

    Answer: This question is rather subjective and really depends on what you are specifically looking for, but here is a thread with a great list of add-ons that many new users will like to update their game to that 2012-2013 feel: Recommended add-ons, tracks, and mods for new users and Another great list of recommendations

    Question: I've got a lot of cool mods, tracks, and add-ons added now but my frame rate is low and/or my graphics on certain cars or tracks appear very blurry. How can I fix this?

    Answer: First and foremost, do you have a video card? Seems like a silly question to ask considering this forum is basically a gaming forum, and you are playing a game. But believe it or not, people ask why they have crappy frames per second when they don't even have a video card. If you don't have one, stop reading right now and go get one. DO NOT WASTE EVERY ONES TIME HELPING YOU IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VIDEO CARD!!

    If you do have a video card and still have issues with your graphics in nr2003, please read on :) There might be many reasons for the issue occurring but here are two great threads that can help you fix a lot of the common graphics issues. They will also help you tweak your settings to allow for the most crisp looking graphics in NR2003 possible as well: Blurry Graphics explained and Graphics tweaker
    Alternatively, if you don't want to download the graphics tweaker program provided to you here at our boards, you can use the web based one provided by The Bullring NR2003 Graphics Tweaker

    Question: I have a more specific question/problem about NR2003, where can I get help for this?

    Answer: The best thing to do first is use the search function on this forum. You can find a lot of your most common questions answered by doing quick searches on specific stuff. The best section to search in if you are looking for NR2003 help is the NR2003 general discussion section. If you've tried searching with no luck feel free to leave a post in this thread to gain some assistance: NR2003 for beginners

    Question: I want to learn how to paint cars for NR2003 are there any useful tutorials?

    SRD has a wonderful tutorials section. Depending on what panting program you have you will find a different variety of tutorials for that specific tool: Tutorials section

    Forum etiquette

    We've seen a lot of members come and go here at SRD and to ensure everyone has an enjoyable time here are a few common things to consider when posting regardless if it is about the NR2003 or not:

    • If you have specific needs or questions about NR2003 do not post them in the general discussion section. That area is not suitable for it. Instead post in the NR2003 General Discussion area and remember to use the search function first. It helps reduce the amount of redundant questions that have been answered many times already.
    • If you are looking for a specific add-on of NR2003 make sure to ask in the correct section such as the beginners thread or NR2003 general discussion section. Asking for and requesting in areas such as the showroom and NR2003 community files are frowned upon. Those are for presentation only. If you need a request for a car visit the requests section.
    • Remember to always be considerate and respectful of others. Especially those who are taking their time to make all these free add-ons, tracks, and mods for NR2003. Do not keep asking when a certain project will be finished. The project owner will inform the community whenever he/she is wanting to reveal more info on their project or release it.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this guide. We hope it has helped answer some of your common questions. We look forward to seeing you around!
