For those of you that use OGL and get the extremely slow 'spinning newspaper' between finishing a race and seeing the static newspaper with results image - I found a way around the slow-down.

By replacing the 28 varied images of the 'spinning newspaper' with 'blank' pbf images, the animation of spinning is bypassed.  On completing a race, and after clicking on the green flag to go to the newspaper with results, you now go directly to the newspaper.

I am supplying this 'fix' in two methods.  One method is to extract the 28 blank pbf files into your layout folder.  The other method is a layout.DAT file that I have substituted the 28 newspaper pbf files with blanks.  This second method is more manageable when using separate installs for each mod.  Please, note that you only need ONE of these D/L to get the spinning newspaper bypass.

I hope this is found useful.  :)
