    I just installed Nascar HeatCore, and was able to get the 1978 mod to load just fine. I selected a driver, and selected a track - the Daytona track that came with the mod - and then the game crashed to the desktop. I can't get beyond the initial loading screen. I've tried running the mod selection as an admin, but it doesn't seem to fix it. Any idea why this is happening?

    I usually find that when i get CTD issues an un-install and re-install is the cure...

    Okay, so I re-installed, and got further along than before. I was able to get to a practice session, only to realize I forgot to calibrate my wheel. I went to do that, and it crashed again. I then got a notice that bitdefender had stopped working. I forgot to include that bitdefender notice came up the first time - so that's the common thread here. Any ideas why this might be a recurring problem?

    Also, I only have the trial version of bitfender installed - I don't even use it. I use AVG. So I'm not sure why bitdefender is interfering.

    Simple, just don't enable it when you fire up HeatCore.. I have no idea why your having these issues, but HeatCore works well on all systems up to Win 10 O/S. I don't have bitfender on my system, but I do have other types of Antivirus systems on my and when we created HeatCore we didn't run into any issue's with any of them. So in your case I would just disable and then fire up HeatCore

    Can you install Heat Core all by itself, or do you need heat installed first????

    Hi Garrett,

    No you do not need Heat installed. HeatCore is the Nascar Heat engine packed with a starters kit, with a demo mod, and a few tracks, to get you started. After that feel free, to download any and all 3rd party mods and tracks.

    If your interested also please stop by, TMS and register, http://themodsquad.info. You will recognize several folks from here over there as well. We are a small niche community who enjoy supporting Heat, plus a few other sims..

    Will be announcing more of a road map of what were doing later on in 2017.

    Enjoy Heat bud.

    Also out at our web site, I created a track data base, of all the NH orig tracks and addon's, so you can do a search of any type of track, and then get the download link. For example if you type in Daytona, it will spit out all the different types of Daytona tracks that have been made over the years.. If you visit, TMS, at the top of the header of our web site, click on tracks.

    You drop all the mods into the main Nascar Heat Folder.. So for example trucks would go C:/programs files (X86)/Hasbro Interactive/Nascar Heat/ Camping World Trucks Series

    All tracks that you download, you put them all into the run folder.

    So happy to see more folks getting into HEAT, and thanks to "themodsquad" for helping out folks with any issues that arise...it's worth the trouble (if you have any) to get the game running, lots of fun...

    I think it is great to see so many folks wanting to play with both sims...nr2003 and HEAT. Both are great fun to drive in.
