Star Ridge Racer 2 - HD Texture Project (1.2/WIP)
«About this Texture Project»

This is a project to modify the game Ridge Racer 2 to have better quality textures for crispness and clarity.

Only possible on PPSSPP.

For use ONLY WITH Ridge Racer 2 (EUR) - NOT FOR Ridge Racer 1 (USA/EUR)

This texture project uses some textures created by Lee "R-Type Leo" Robson,
used with permission from his discontinued/dead texture project.

«How To Use/Install»

1. First, you want to enable the "Replace Textures" option inside PPSSPP.
To do that, you go to Settings > Tools > Developer Tools and check the box for it.

2. Afterwards, go to your PPSSPP directory
(Windows Installer Version is in My Documents/PSP)
(Windows Zipped version is in memstick/PSP)
(Android is in flash0/PSP)

3. Create a folder named TEXTURES in the same place as GAME, PPSSPP_STATE, SYSTEM, SAVEDATA, etc.

4. Put the folder named after the GAME ID inside of TEXTURES.
(Make sure the folder's name matches the GAME ID)

So in a nutshell, it should look something like:
For Installer version: My Documents/PSP/TEXTURES/UCES00422
For .zipped version: memstick/PSP/TEXTURES/UCES00422
(UCES00422 being Ridge Racer 2 (EUR)'s Game ID)

«FAQ»

-- When are you doing the speedometers? They are part of the HUD! --
SOON™

-- But what about the minimaps on the HUD? --
There are a LOT of tracks and track variations in this game.
So pulling and editing every single minimap will take a lot of time. But it will happen eventually!

-- Will this mod ever do car or racetrack/stage textures? --
Possibly! It would take a very, very long time to do them all though.
So for now: those textures are CONSIDERED for the future, but won't be happening any time soon.

-- Why Ridge Racer 2 and not Ridge Racer 1? --
Well, RR2 is more or less the same exact game as the first one, just with extra content and minor tweaks/changes.
Think of it like Monster Hunter Freedom 2 compared to Freedom Unite.
But for whatever reason, 2 was never released in the US. Only in Japan and Europe.
So I'm going with the game that offers more in this scenario.
(You better be used to km/h instead of mph!)

RE: Ridge Racer 2 - HD Texture Project (1.2/WIP)
excellent work.
I just had a quick look, after 1 play before after only, so i can't tell all the differences.
main thing I noticed is the nitro meter, they're now boxes, rather than tanks..
keep up the good work.
