Addon problem

Goodday,

I have a nasty addon car problem. And i cannot find a solution to this problem.

I use the steam version with the data folder from the meldpack but also using the sound folder from the first demo.

Then i install addon vehicles (a few including self made, from rr2000 and mastros download page)
I start the game, then choose a vehicle and hit done, it works like normal. Play one race and want to choose a different vehicle for the next one, but this time the game crashes when pressing 'done'.

And that is it, i do not know where to go from here.

I tried to reproduce the problem but the game never crashed. Here's what I did:
1. installed GOG C1
2. ran it and decrypted the files
3. overwrote the original DATA folder with the one from the MELDPACK (I didn't delete the original DATA folder)
4. started a race with a car, ended the race, choose another car. Both with a new game and a saved game. Game didn't crash.
5. installed the car from Alone In The Dark and tried again. Game didn't crash.
6. overwrote the SOUND folder with the one from the early demo.
7. tried again to race then change car, game didn't crash.

So here are some questions:
- Could you upload your OPPONENT.TXT somewhere? (pastebin.com etc)
- Are you running within the lowres, hires or 3dfx mode?
- Did you decrypt the data files?
- Do all addons crash the game? Even older addons without crush data?
- Have you installed any other addon?
- Does it crash after ending any race? (be it from C1 or SP)
- Does it crash if you start the race, then directly abort it and go to change the car?
- Have you tried without overwriting the SOUND folder? (why do you even do that?) From exactly which demo did you take that SOUND folder?
- Are you playing from a loaded savegame (that came with the Meldpack I mean), if yes then which?

If I were you, I'd simply remove the Steam C1 install and start anew. And with each step I'd test the addon car to check if it makes the game crash. (I mean, once before overwriting the DATA folder, once before overwriting the SOUND folder, then again before installing any other addon).

That's all that comes to mind at the moment.

Strange, usually it works that way over here.

-Sure https://joker.toshiba-3.com/OPPONENT.rar
-Lowres at the moment, on some moments hires.
-Yes, although most already are it seems.
-All addons so far, most of them without crush.
-What do you mean, race tracks?
-It crashes after a finishing a race and selecting a different vehicle. So far it seems to happen to all tracks.
-No
-I have not yet. I used the sound folder from the very first demo mostly because some effects sound better. Normally i would not have any trouble with it.
-No

I'll later take a look with uninstalling and installing again and testing what you wrote down.
