    I'll be editing this post with info as I can.

    Installing from previous:
    Use Update tab on installer, or download lite and either uninstall old, reinstall new, or just install new over the top.

    Installing new:
    Download installer from the link below that you wish to use. First timers might want to use the demo build first to try rF2, others probably want lite, then you can add cars and tracks from the other download pages.

    Download: http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/installers/

    Hallelujah.

    I hope next time we have an experience like 494 ISI will just bite the bullet and roll back to a previous build ( or whatever it may take) in order that we have a game that essentially works, and can be used to race with.

    Hi Tim,

    I Posted just before in the old Build 494 thread with the question of to what extend the MP issues influenced the development and testing of some additional code which was held from build 494? You probably missed that one so here the question agai:)

    Thanks ISI.

    This line in the AI section:
    "Small change attempting to reduce AI tendency to stay behind a slower car."

    I could not (and still could'nt today with the Unstable Build) see any improvement in the AI regarding this issue so I'm not sure if it works correctly in 590 unless there was a last minute code change, will check it out later.

    I just answered this with someone in the unstable forum, but pretty much. With Jeremy, completely altered everything he could do. And of course he is the senior guy.
