- Off-road Mode (experimental)

  That's right! You can now drive off-road in pretty much any spot

  Is this the closest thing to Big Surf Island on the PC?

  (i.e. driving pretty much anywhere off-road)


- Stealth Mode (experimental) and Takedown Battles

  A stealth mode has been added. Using this mode you will be able to

  turn off player names above vehicles and map markers. It can be used

  together with the new Takedown Battle custom challenges to make a

  new game mode. The new challenges are:

                   Who will be crowned the takedown king?


- Automatic Backup of Savegame

  Vanity Pack makes a backup of your current savegame with every run.

  If you don't want this, start it with a "/n" switch and no backup

  will be made.


- Steam Support

  As far as we know, Vanity Pack is now compatible with Steam.



Competition

-----------


A competition was launched with the initial release of Vanity Pack.


See the "Burnout Paradise the ultimate box for pc" or Burnout Hints

forums for more information. The competition ended on March 5, 2010.


The winner was Ouerbacker who found all ten objects.



How To Install

--------------


Unpack the installer archive to a folder outside of the game folders and run

VanityPack.exe. If you need to re-run the full installation for some reason,

first remove any vanity.yaml file next to VanityPack.exe. This file holds some

installer preferences that speed up future runs. You will lose any vehicle

editor preferences, however.



How To Use

----------


VanityPack.exe has to be run before starting the game executable every time

the game is played if you desire some of the dynamically added features. The

game is still playable if you don't run VanityPack.exe but you simply won't

have access to all its features. It is recommended to quit VanityPack before

you quit the game at the end of your gaming sessions.


Where are the new vehicles?

* Sponsor vehicles are found at the end of the regular Paradise Cars list

* Community vehicles are found with their respective vehicle in Paradise Cars,

  Online Cars and Boost Specials lists

* Pedestrian vehicles are found in the Online Cars list when you are online


How to use fusion in the Vanity Pack vehicle editor?

* Browse a vehicle in the junk yard (Finish 1 is not eligible unless the vehicle

  has only one finish)

* Activate fusion selection in the vehicle editor

* Select a second vehicle to fuse with in the vehicle editor

* Browse another finish of the vehicle

* Browse the original finish that was the target of fusion

* Select the vehicle, colors and play the game


NOTE: Before you try fusion, it is recommended you make a backup of your

      save game. Restoring a save game backup can break the fusion if you

      can't get the method described below to work.

NOTE: The vehicle finish that was the target of fusion will show up under the

      other vehicle the next time you browse vehicles in the junk yard. E.g.

      if Finish 3 of the Cavalry was fused with the Extreme Hot Rod then Finish

      3 of the Cavalry will show up as a second finish under the Extreme Hot Rod.

NOTE: It can happen that if you change fusion sources around that all finishes

      of the target vehicle become unselectable in the junk yard. If this happens

      you will have to redo the fusion and then break the fusion by browsing the

      fused vehicle in the junk yard, browse another finish under the same vehicle

      and while doing so change the fusion target back to the original value

      before browsing another finish or vehicle.

NOTE: Not much testing has been done on bikes or on fusing cars and bikes, so

      tread carefully.



Known Issues

------------


- Vanity Pack requires UAC to be enabled. If you run the executable but don't

  see an installer GUI, please activate UAC before trying again. There have

  been reports of the process not being able to be killed. If this happens,

  restart Windows and try again after having activated UAC.


- Running the game after installing Vanity Pack might trigger Anti-Virus

  software to question the executable. The changes therein are limited to

  modding the game startup logo, a custom road name and horns activation.

  The game executable can be replaced with the original executable after

  installation if you so choose. You will only lose out on the above

  features for now.


- If the boost flames setting is changed from All Vehicles while the current

  vehicle is in hover mode then the vehicle might get stuck in hover mode and

  its wheels start wobbling. Hey, nice feature! ;-)


- Only the vehicles mentioned in the features section above support hovering.

  For other vehicles you will just see the camera move.


- If you land in water in off-road mode, your screen will go black. Turn off

  off-road mode to respawn normally. The same can be done to get out of off-road

  areas that you can't showtime your way out of. If you land upside down in

  off-road mode you can turn off off-road mode to get back on your wheels, or

  in the worst case start a showtime session.


- If you enter a junk yard with off-road mode turned on, you could end up

  inside the junk yard with no way to get out. Showtime or crashing might

  get you out, if you're lucky. Alternatively you could use the WTR with

  zero gravity to get you out.


- It takes a while to toggle stealth mode. The player names above vehicles

  appear/disappear right away, but the patching to map marker graphics can

  take a few seconds. When completed the vehicle editor will show "Off!" or

  "On!" instead of the normal "Off" or "On". Depending on your graphics card

  you might have to ALT+TAB out of the game and back into the game for the

  map markers to pick up the change. Some testers have reported that the

  map markers never disappear.


- The new takedown battle challenges has a few known side effects.


  If the host does not have the Vanity Pack, Vanity Pack players will be able

  to complete their part of the host's billboard smashing challenge by

  performing a single takedown in the area mentioned in the takedown challenge,

  i.e. Palm Bay Heights or Downtown Paradise.


  If the host does have the Vanity Pack, players without the Vanity Pack

  might not be able to complete their part of the host's takedown challenge

  regardless if they smash billboards or get takedowns in or outside of the

  area mentioned in the takedown challenge.


  There is currently no automatic syncing of stealth mode setting between

  players. Please follow the host's direction on whether or not to turn

  stealth mode and/or traffic on or off in order to make the game play fair

  to everyone.


- If you drive the Hydros Micromania Custom, or even display it in the junk

  yard, while in an online room the game might crash for people who doesn't

  have Vanity Pack installed. Please don't abuse this.

  An obvious solution is to have all your friends install Vanity Pack.

  A workaround solution is to quickly scroll past the Micromania icon in the

  junk yard without letting it drop down for display.


- If you have a non-ASCII character in your Windows user name, such that the

  path to your savegame folder contains it, Vanity Pack might not play nice.

  A possible, untested, solution could be to use junction.exe from Microsoft

  to create a junction to the savegame folder and use that path in Vanity Pack.


- If you close the game before Vanity Pack at the end of your gaming session,

  you might get an error message output in the vanity.log file. This is normal.

How To Install

--------------

- Make a backup of your save game file as needed. The save game is located at:

  Windows Vista/Windows 7:

   %LOCALAPPDATA%\Criterion Games\Burnout Paradise\Save

  Windows XP:

   %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Criterion Games\Burnout Paradise\Save

  Remember that you might need to change your folder settings to

  show hidden files in order to see the Application Data folder.

- Simply run the Vanity Pack installer to install Vanity Pack.

  If you have used Vanity Pack 1.5 or earlier or Vanity Pack 2.0 beta 7 or earlier,

  it is recommended that you first uninstall and reinstall the game in order to

  not have any files carried over from the earlier Vanity Pack, as this could

  negatively impact the new Vanity Pack. Make sure to first back up

  your save game, if desired.

- Optionally select to install Russian Vanity Pack (partial).

- At the end of installation, you can opt to read the README file, FAQ file

  and/or run Vanity Pack

- NOTE: For the Steam version, the original game folder is renamed

  to burnout(tm) paradise the ultimate box.original and a junction

  is created in place of the original folder, pointing to the

  Vanity Pack folder. This is needed as the game needs to be run

  from within the steamapps folder. If you want to play the original

  Steam game without Vanity Pack either uninstall Vanity Pack or,

  at your own risk, run SteamSwitcher with a command line argument

  of "OFF" (wihtout quotes). In order to restore the Vanity Pack

  version after having done this, run the SteamSwitcher with a

  command line argument of "ON" (without quotes).

- Starting with version 2.0.0 beta 9 you will be able to install

  updates in place without uninstalling the old VP version first.


How To Use

----------

- Start Vanity Pack. With User Account Control (UAC) turned on

  you will see an elevation dialog. After confirming you should

  see a Vanity Pack window. With UAC turned off you should see

  the Vanity Pack without being prompted for elevation. This

  might not work on all configurations. If it doesn't, turn UAC

  on or start VanityPack.exe as Administrator.

- Burnout Paradise will be launched automatically.

- Wait for Vanity Pack to do its thing. If you have auto-login

  turned on, it should all be automatic. If you don't then you

  will need to log in to the Criterion Games Network/Origin

  inside the game.

- To get help about Vanity Pack startup parameters, run VanityPack.exe

  with the command line argument "--help" (without quotes). Some

  help information will be logged to a log file in the logs directory

  of your Vanity Pack installation.

Use the "Switch Menu" hotkeys to switch between the different menus.

The "Toggle Menu" key(s) toggle back and forth between hiding the menu

and showing the information console. The console shows the state of

features like Traffic and Offroad as well as Color and Boost information.

It also shows the selected vehicle to spawn to as well as saved vehicles

that you can spawn to.


Use the "Toggle Traffic" and "Toggle Offroad" hotkeys to toggle those

features on or off.


To switch vehicles outside the junk yard, use the "Switch Vehicle Selection"

hotkeys (in conjunction with SHIFT as needed) to select the vehicle to

spawn. You can then either spawn the vehicle by using the "Spawn Selected

Vehicle" hotkey or save it to one of two slots using the "Save Vehicle Selection"

hotkeys. Use the "Spawn Save Vehicle" hotkeys to spawn the saved vehicles.

You can also use the "Switch Vehicle Selection to Currently Driven Vehicle"

hotkey to set current vehicle selection to the vehicle currently driven.


To switch colors and color types, use the "Switch Color" and "Switch Color

Type" hotkeys. Use a combination of CTRL and/or SHIFT with the "Switch Color"

hotkey to make bigger steps in color selection. Use the "Save Color & Color

Type" hotkey to save the selection for later recall using the "Restore Color"

& Color Type" hotkey. Please note that these selection operate on the car

you are currently driving and that a change in color selection can be seen

right away. This is not the case with boost selection, described below.


To switch boost type, length and fade, use the "Switch Boost Type", "Switch

Boost Length" and "Switch Boost Fade" hotkeys. Please note that a change to

any of these does not immediately take effect to the car you're driving.

You will have to re-spawn the car or re-select the car in the junk yard

for the new boost settings to be activated. "Boost Vehicle Type" selection

has not yet been implemented (car vs. bike).


To save settings for the currently selected vehicle to the VanityPack.ini

file, use the "Save Vehicle Settings for Currently Selected Vehicle" hotkey.

You can also save the current settings to all previously saved vehicles or

for all vehicles using the respective hotkeys "Save Vehicle Settings for All

Saved Vehicles" and "Save Vehicle Settings for All Vehicles". To restore

default vehicle settings for the currently selected vehicle, use the "Restore

Default Vehicle Settings for Currently Selected Vehicle" hotkey. To reset

vehicle settings from the VanityPack.ini file instead, use the "Restore

Vehicle Settings for Currently Selected Vehicle" hotkey.


To toggle auto kick and mute, use the "Toggle Auto Kick And Mute" hotkey.

For this feature to work you will have to add additional information to your

VanityPack.ini file, see the "Bully Repellent" section below.



How To Assign Custom Key Bindings

---------------------------------

The default key bindings should have been added to VanityPack.ini the first

time you run Vanity Pack. To set custom key bindings, edit the values on the

right side of the equals signs (=), not the keys to the left.


NOTE: It is advisable to make a backup of the VanityPack.ini file before

you edit the file. Vanity Pack might not be able to start properly if

you mess up something in the file.


NOTE: Please do not edit the VanityPack.ini file while Vanity Pack is

running or you will most likely lose the information entered. Only edit

the VanityPack.ini file before starting Vanity Pack. There is one

exception to this, see the Bully Repellent section below.


You can use a single key, possibly modified by between zero to three of

the modifier keys, CTRL, ALT and SHIFT. Separate key names and modifier

key names with plus signs (+).


When Vanity Pack starts up it will write to its log file a message stating

whether or not the custom key bindings were successfully parsed. It will

also log the key bindings that are in effect. If there is an error in

parsing the custom key bindings from VanityPack.ini, Vanity Pack will

fall back to using the default key bindings.


Please note that on some keyboards you will need to install a special driver

to be able to use media keys and other keys beyond the 101/102 standard keys.

Some keyboards, like the HP KG-0636, does unfortunately not pass through

presses of some of their media keys to third party applications like Vanity Pack.


If you want to change the key repeat settings, edit the following values in

VanityPack.ini. They are all represented in milliseconds.


KeyRepeatDelay (default 500) changes how long to wait before starting to

key repeat after initially pressing one or more keys.


KeyRepeatRate (default 10) changes the key repeat rate when holding one

or more keys down.


InfoPanelUpdateDelay (default 500) changes how long to wait before updating

the information panel after releasing a hotkey.



Key Binding Names

-----------------


The following section shows the key binding names that Vanity Pack knows

about. Please note that not all these keys are actually available on

every keyboard. The chart below shows them as laid out on my standard

US keyboard. You keyboard layout might differ.


To further investigate key scan codes, should you not find what you're

looking for in the chart below, you can use the VanityKeys.exe program,

which you can find in the Vanity Pack installation directory. If you

are running on a non-US keyboard layout and you are having problems

running this software, please report any issues.


Another program that might be helpful is "Keyboard Codes Display" from

http://delphiforfun.org/programs/utilities/KeyCodes.htm

The Vanity Pack names do not match 100% to these, but they're close enough.



Modifier key binding names:

Bully Repellent

---------------


Vanity Pack includes an experimental feature that allows for

automatically muting or kicking one or more players. Please

note that this does not do anything that you could not do

yourself in the original game - it just makes it a bit more

convenient as it is automatic (when it's working properly).

Because of this, you can only kick players automatically

using Vanity Pack if you are the host.


Please also note that the bully repellent features are not

active by default as Vanity Pack starts. You will need to

press the corresponding hotkey to toggle it on (or off).


NOTE: It is advisable to make a backup of the VanityPack.ini file before

you edit the file. Vanity Pack might not be able to start properly if

you mess up something in the file.


NOTE: Editing the VanityPack.ini file while Vanity Pack is

running for anything but the auto kick and auto mute values

described below will most likely not retain the information

entered. Editing AutoKick and AutoMute values while the

Vanity Pack is running is supported, but tread carefully.

In order for updated values to take effect in the game

if editing while Vanity Pack is running, you must disable

and re-enable auto kick and auto mute using the designated

hotkey.


To automatically kick players from your room when you are

the host, add the desired player names, separated by comma,

on a line like the following in the UserSettings section of

VanityPack.ini:


AutoKick = playername1,playername2


To automatically mute players from the room, whether you are

the host or not, add the desired player names, separated by

comma, on a line like the following in the UserSettings

section of VanityPack.ini:


AutoMute = playername3,playername4


Player names need to match the full names of the players

you desire to kick or mute. "playername1", "playername2",

"playername3" and "playername4" are just examples to

illustrate how to use these features.



Away From Keyboard (AFK) mode

-----------------------------

An experimental Away From Keyboard feature was added to

Vanity Pack in version 2.0.0 beta 9. The AFK mode starts

automatically under the following conditions:


 - You are in an online freeburn room

 - There are at least two players in the room

 - An Online Marked Man freeburn game is not running

 - You have been parked, without moving, for 30 seconds

 - You have not used any Vanity Pack hotkeys for 30 seconds


If you move before the timer has reached 30 seconds, be it

volunteerily or by being hit by another player or a traffic

vehicle, the 30-second timer resets. The same goes for using

a Vanity Pack hotkey.


When AFK mode activates, your car will start blinking to

alert others that you are AFK. During the time you are in

AFK mode you will also be immune to takedowns.


Once AFK mode has activated, it is canceled under the

following conditions:


 - You leave the online freeburn room

 - An Online Marked Man freeburn game is starting

 - You start driving



How To Uninstall

----------------

- Run the Vanity Pack uninstaller.

- Restore your save game from your backup as needed.



Known Issues

------------

- See the FAQ for the most up to date information on issues

- The save game may not be compatible with the original, un-modded,

  game after using this mod. Please make backups as necessary.

- The toy P12 88 Special does not, just like its bigger parent,

  silence the engine while hovering.



How To Report Issues

--------------------

- Send a comment describing your issue to smilingfrog at

  Burnout Hints (burnouthints.webs.com). Please include the corresponding

  log file from the Vanity Pack's logs folder. It is best to run

  VanityPack.exe with the command line argument "--detail" (without quotes)

  before reporting the issue as this will add more diagnostic context

  to the log file.

- Alternatively, if I am available, send a message on Xfire/Steam/Origin.



Where To Find New Versions

--------------------------

- Sign up for the Vanity Pack News mailing list at

  https://mailman-mail5.webfaction.com/listinfo/vanitypack-news

- Gamer Hints/Burnout Hints (burnouthints.webs.com)

- With version 2.0.0 beta 8 automatic updates is possible and

  you will get prompted upon starting Vanity Pack if a new version

  is available, unless bandwidth limitations prevent it. In that

  case you will still get notified when starting Vanity Pack that

  a new version is available for download outside of Vanity Pack.
