Advanced Challengers for NFSMW -beta-

A career mod that adds unique opponents (inspired mainly by the NDS/GBA Blacklist) in select races with increased difficulty and rewards

15 unique opponents to face across select races through the Blacklist, with increased difficulty (slightly tougher AI and cop probability always set on High) and cash rewards (up to 2x compared to a normal race)
Text intros and outros for each opponent you face.
Slight tweaks to career mode progression: slightly lessened required races through the middle of the Blacklist and changed race order prioritizing shorter events in most instances.

This mod is considered a beta given that although perfectly functional it's also a bit crude partly due limitations, partly since I haven't looked forward yet to some stuff. Some of which are:

Text intros/outros do have a "2" in the background, also they be animated a bit too fast, limiting how much text I can put into them so they can be read at a reasonable speed (probably have to edit the fng files related to them?).
Because of the game treats tracks and events as a single entity and prolly due some hardcoded stuff, a duplicate of each edited race is put in the Black Edition event vault to make it available in Quick Race while keeping the career event separate so it works like a normal event in Quick Race.
Only a handful of NIS were used since not all had the angles I wanted and also some break opponent starting grid position if the NIS is not made for more opponents than it's designed for. (I know about NIS editing but AFAIK there's no public tool for those yet)
Events might be subject to change under future evaluation and feedback.
Only English and Spanish languages are supported for the moment
