Once you have installed SpintiresMod with the setup (which I assume you know how to do. If not, ask below for guidance), it will launch. On the top left there is a button that says Mod Settings as seen in the screenshot above. Click that. Then, this window will appear.

Launch MudRunner from SpinTiresMod. You will have a new button in Settings at the bottom that will say Advanced Options. That’s the in-game Mudrunner Plus Config panel, you’ll want to check all the boxes in there. Also, you must launch Mudrunner from SpintiresMod.exe on your desktop. Any other way like through steam library in most cases doesn’t work. And you’re done! (this also works for Spintires 03/03/16. Just install the Spintires directory in the according Install… button)

    1. Did you re-install the full game or the mod program? Having some trouble with this steam_api.dll error on my epic games copy

  1. Hi, Unfortunately I have the version of the game Spintires MudRunner from the Epic Store and this mod (SpintiresMod.exe) is not compatible with the version from the epic store. The mod tells me that it cannot find steam_api.dll. They could make this mod compatible with the Epic store version. When I install a tracked vehicle and when I enter the game, the vehicle appears without the tracks and I read on web pages that this mod solves that problem. Please make this mod compatible with the epic store version, I downloaded a lot of tracked vehicles and none worked.
