Clear Cache

Author: brain child of many veteran users 🙂

This is a small yet elegant batch file which takes care of one nasty task you sometimes have to perform. And no i don’t mean doing diapers or wrestling a skunk. It flushes the game cache for Spin Tires in case you run into trouble after installing a mod with a defect etc.

Download it. Unzip directly in the same folder as where spintires.exe is and you can use it from there.
Edited the batch to have RMDIR /s “%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\SpinTires” which takes care of my own problem when your User profile is not on C.
Thanks iceroads, i totally missed that one.

    I would change the remove line to read:
    RMDIR /s “%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\SpinTires”

    this way it works if someone renamed their user in windows – when you rename a windows user the %USERNAME% is changed but the path on disk remains the old one

    I don’t seem to have appdata/roaming folder…?
    Really weird.
    With previous installs i had the game on like drive D: and then i could find the appdata/roaming folder on C: Drive (OS).
    Now i can’t find it, it doesn’t seem to be there at all.
    If i use this clear cache things it says it works, but how can i be sure?

    Doesn’t this delete the profile folder, instead of just the cache file?

    del /q/s “%APPDATA%\SpinTires\ShaderCache.sdc”
    del /q/s “%APPDATA%\SpinTires\MeshCache.mhc”

    would work better
