    How are they based on the S397 physics? Official cars are encrypted.

    All the encryption does is prevent you from viewing/extracting the files from the encrypted .mas.

    You can still make a mod which uses files from the .mas as long as you know what the files are called.

    For this mod I was able to give all cars the MP4-13 physics since I knew what the MP4-13's .hdv was called.
    To make performance different for each car, I just added drag/reduced downforce in each car's upgrade file.

    Hopefully that makes sense lol

    Makes sense I guess, thanks. Any idea if the hdv is the only thing you can change through the upgrade file? The engine ini would be another desirable target.

    If not just look for Guiseppe Rainieri and ask :) He's a good guy!

    That's actually not a bad idea. Sorry for taking this slightly off topic, but was wondering if you ran into this issue. For some reason, I don't think it works for all the S397 cars. Over the weekend I was attempting to do something similar with applying the Norma LMP3 physics to the Enduracers Ligier LMP3. I referenced the .sfx and that worked. But for some reason, referencing the .hdv, the game would crash right at the end of loading. I can't figure out which file it is causing it.

    Just wondering if you have any ideas? I'll have to look at your F1 1998 files to see how you did it. I also need to figure out how you did the "update" to the original .rfcmp. I've never been able to figure that out LOL!

    You can extract all of the files from the encrypted mas for the open wheelers but none for the gt's and lmp's so I would assume that would have something to do with the Norma not working, slightly more protection than the rest :)
