Q: What are the original resolution values?
A: It varies from game to game. For this one it's Road: 320x240, Vehicle: 256x256, Mirror: 512x256, and PIP: 256x256.

Q: What does "PIP" mean?
A: Picture-In-Picture. It's the box that occasionally appears when racing against a boss character.

Q: Isn't PauseBlur from Extra Options? Why did you add this feature?
A: I'm the creator of PauseBlur, and since not everyone uses Extra Options, there's no reason why I shouldn't add it.

Q: Is this compatible with other mods?
A: I can't make any guarantees. It's been tested with Widescreen Fix, Extra Options, Unlimiter, HUD Adapter, and HUD Resizer. All texture mods and car mods should work.

Q: What are the system requirements?
A: It's difficult to say because it depends on your resolution, settings, and other enhancements being used. For 1080p, anything with a GTX 1060 / RX 480, Core i5 / Ryzen 3 should be able to easily run this.
