    Hi
    I have googled and serced 397 dev corner, but maybe I´m getting to old, bacause I´m a bit confused about shaders.
    With RF1 wee should place the shaders in "hardwareshaders", but when i Google, I find that you just point the material editor to a shared folder in RF2 Steam installation.
    In Steam installation I find a mas file in the shared folder, but I can´t extract the CoreShaders masfile with eighter the RF1 mas tools or the RF2 mas tool.
    Someone know what the secret behind the shaders are?
    I know the easy answer: "why don´t you just Google it, if I can find it so can you", but I find different answers around, think some old threads still pop up, and I can´t find some new answers.
    Best regards
    Normark

    You don't need to extract the mas file in rF2.
    In the material editor just select the location of the mas file, then restart 3d max.

    Hi Tommy
    Thanks for a fast reply :)
    I have tried to point the material editor to the shared folder in the steam installation, but that doesn´t work, I think I mess things up as I try to import a RF1 track which has the old shaders.(one of my old RF1 kart-tracks)
    I can import the GMT´s but get som missing shaders, but I have to point to the location of the old shaders.
    I will have to try som solutions, it works but not optimal :)

    Rf2 does not support rf1 shaders, so that won't work.

    Here is a link to my first conversion of one of my tracks, rf1 to rf2.
    I seem to work in some way only with textures, don´t know about that shaderstuff.
