Using Origin version here. The first time I managed to pass the login screen.  I've got the completed 102% save file, but somehow running the RV2 I had to start again from 0, gotta watch that long initial movie. As usual the game start me off with the cavalry, went to the repair station, went back to the junkyard and then the game froze.  Tried again and the game froze at the loading screen right after the logging screen. 

So it's no go with the origin version, my version of origin at least.

PS : those challenges ... man they are true hardcore stuff lol

Ah yes, I missed the step to copy the burnout paradise folder to RV2 folder.

Will try again later, really looking forward to try the chopper and see the aerial-drone view of the paradise world.

Thanks Pashok, great job !

Melex, DLC cars are not there because they aren't completely unlocked yet (i believe at least). A friend of mine has the same problem.

Will steam be supported in next update please? Also why doesnt it have a self installer like VP to make it easier? The instructions arent clear. Copy the RV2 folder content in the game folder. Do you mean copy/paste file contents of RV2 to Burnout game folder? Or just copy RV2 folder to Burnout game folder? Then someone posts it didnt work because they forgot to put the Burnout game folder in RV2???  Why wasnt this included in the instructions then? Then it says Deletion: delete .RV2 files from the game folder. ??? Maybe, I just wait for next VP...

I finally manage to run it correctly  :D

Here's what you do :

1) Copy just the contents of RV2 folder to Burnout game folder. This is the folder that contains the exe files : BurnoutConfigTool.exe, BurnoutLauncher.exe, BurnoutParadise.exe.

 I'm using Origin so the contents of the RV2 folder go to the "Program Files (x86)/Origin Games/Burnout Paradise" folder.

If you just do this step, you'd start over from the beginning. 

2) If you want to use your own save with its completion percentage, then go to "users/[username]/AppData/Local/Criterion Games/" folder (this is the default user game folder, if you're using windows 7). This is if you're using Origin.  If you're using Steam , then I suppose you'd need to use the Steam user game folder.

In this folder you have the "Burnout Paradise" folder (which contains your save files).  Create another folder named "Russian Vanity 2", then copy everything in "Burnout Paradise" folder to the newly created "Russian Vanity 2" folder. 

That's it.

On a different subject, I do miss the ability to change the boost fade, and the ability to change cars outside the junkyards hehehe

PS : oh I forgot to add, you can access the various DLC cars without signing on to the server.  Usually the DLC cars are not accessible if you don't logon to the game server.

The next VP may not be coming at all, DFGT. Since you want clearer install instructions: copy the contents of the RV2 folder into your Burnout folder. That's all you have to do, unless you'll keep a backup of your vanilla game somewhere else, which I highly recommend.

Also, most people don't read the readme, where it says RV2 has a different save folder. Pretty important info.


As for the Steam game not working, it worked for me in Alpha 3, IDK how it wouldn't in Beta 1.


Edit: I've had the browser open on this page long enough for someone else to post without it showing on the webpage that was loaded...

Thanks Burninrubber0 and Semutkuning for your kind help. I did everything you said but when I launch the RussianVanity.exe i get message: Wrong disc inserted. Please insert the original "Burnout Paradise Ultimate" CD/DVD.

I found a problem, sometimes my friends who are logged in Criterion network not appear as if they are using online VP2.0.0 .not know if any friend still uses the Burnout without the mod .just who are using RV2.0 appear as "friends playing burnout "is not always, I only know that I have friends online when entering a room that has not been created by me .where can see play but says there is no online friends. ps, to me it is not problem and I use the steam to know who is online and playing at the time, my game and not steam and Origin

@b51

it's a bug in burnout not in VP2 or RV2. It happened to me a long time ago before VP1.5. The only fix is to remove them and add them again

I tried installing the demo but it tells me to remove Burnout (TM) Paradise The Ultimate Box installed on my computer, presumably its the steam version (I also have cracked Burnout) as steam has the (TM) in title.

So I cant risk my steam burnout being removed. I did look at Origin and its on sale for $10 but I refuse to pay for the game again. I read somewhere that EA games bought on steam were free on Origin since EA own Origin but I cant see any evidence of that .

I tried downloading Origin client but for some reason my Origin ID (I redemed Amazon DLC on Origin while back) was not being accepted even though on the website it is. People have said Origin clent is screwy and I dont doubt it. So Im back on square one again. I really hope RV2 will work on steam next update. I wish it was simples...
