    Which car? Tyrell? I have also found a seat position where I have no black screens at all! But when watching replay from TV cam you'll see it a lot though!

    As far as I know, only the Tyrell has black screens, right? (I hope so)
    But now, ALL seat positions are okay, no position is giving the black screens anymore.

    I might have fixed it; I was using the 0.43 version and that one gives black flickering all around the car plus the black screens. The flickering comes -in some cases- into the car and makes the screen go black too.
    That might have been what I saw after my supposed fix........NOT the original BS bug, but the surrounding black coming into my sight.
    I moved to 0.432 and never saw the black screen again. I kept my fix in there.

    I can't be sure at this point; someone has to test it.
    And; you will see, now I'm happy and when I try it tomorrow, it will bite me in the ass ;)


    EDIT: guess what just bit me in the ass? :(

    I don't know...... I do work on it, but will not hand it over to someone else as long as there is no permission.

    Arnao wasn't in the position to concern himself with all this. He explained briefly and I understand him very well. I don't want to bother him with this; he will contact me or post here when he is able to.
    We just wait.

    Ehm, I want to look into the gtm files and I remember back from when I was doing a conversion of some rF1 mod to rF2, I had a program for it.
    Don't know the name anymore and it was a trial version for 30 days.

    I hope I can reinstall that program again and have to hurry than :)
    Anyway; does anyone know how that program was called? I need it........

    Just ran the Tyrell on 3 different tracks and had no problems in cockpit ( other than an opponent with white tires when he was way in front of me, didn't catch which car).
    Only problem with Tyrell was during play back, and only had one dark screen flash, most opponent cars have chassis disappearing up close. (good looking drivers tho).
    I'm running FOV of 37, never messed with different seat settings, was having too much fun driving.

    I don't know the name of the proggy your looking for.

    One thing I commented to Arnao about, the sound transferred from rF1 into 2 is just not as crisp as it was in rF1.

    Navigator... I'm thinking you will get the bug to do a little work on this mod. Also, I just can't imagine anyone who spent so much time working on this would really feel completely fine letting it just fade into oblivion. Wonder what happened to Zonder??

    That's the one! Thank you!

    Hope I get a new trail version again :)
    Climbing out of a time where the finance was not all that well; now I'm a cheapass :)

    Wait a sec, whers did you get v0.432 from? My rF2 mod manager only says v0.43 and so does the OP...

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just realised that the OP has a v0.432. I've therefore been driving an outdated version this whole darn time (0.43). How many times do I gotta be playing old versions of mods only to find out weeks, even months, later that I've been using an outdated version, geez. The TPM section will save us, don't worry, Spin :)

    Haha, wow! Sorry, but deep down inside you know I just have to do this:



    For someone who is so interested in older mods that he picks up a dozen of +1 year old topics, you pay pretty low attention.......

    Questions:
    - Where in a topic is the smart place -or the most used place for that matter- to post a newer or updated version of their mods for makers?

    - Is there something you could improve or do to overcome this problem?
    (I'll give you a hint)
    Conclusion:
    You dig up older topics to ask if the mods are still alive but don't even bother to look in the starting post if there are already newer versions than the ones on your system........... So you just have to ask yourself; was I really caring for those mods or was I just being........?
    Also; GCCRacer was right.




    Haha, I just HAD to mate. I smiled throughout the writing of this message ;)

    Merry Christmas!

    Well, I got absolutely no gripes about you Spinelli, (as a matter of fact, I just jumped on here to get graphics info in one of your threads again)
    but seriously, I have no trouble with keeping up with updates on mods, especially the ones I'm interested in. All you have to do is at least every other day, for about 5 minutes, check your favorite mod thread (located right here) and your done.

    How to install version V0.43

    Hi all I have not been using rFActor2 for a while so I am having problems installing.

    I get this after installing GP79_UNRESTRICTED_V0.43.rfmcp

    Full install v0.43.rfcmp.PNG

    So it looks like it is installed; however when I go into rFactor single player mode the mod is not listed :(

    If in mod manager I tick only mods I see no mention of GP79.

    Help please.



    Please note I am not installing the 0.432 yet as I want to get 0.43 working first.

    Only mods; that is the one just above the blue bar isn't it? That's installed.

    Did you click "all cars and tracks" in the game?
    Look at the top of the list where your cars are.

    Hope this works.......

    I have checked the main thread multiple times. I saw v0.432, and when I happened to play rF2 i saw v0.43, I didn't memorize the fact that there was a 0.002 missing. I don't memorize, or have a list, of 6000 cars, tracks, and plugin version numbers, and then do a one-to-one check comparing every version number of every car, track, and plugin mod to every version number of every car, track and plugin forum thread, lol.

    I just had another go. It's an understatement to say that there's a ton of potential in this mod. Wow.

    Possible fix for Blackscreen from Seat Leon thread - maybe is the same here ?

    http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/20981-Seat-Leon-Cup-Racer-2014-v1-1?p=331908&viewfull=1#post331908

    Hi Tommy, how did you fix the "black screen" issue?

    Other mods seem to have the same problem. Would be really nice to know and spread this info.

    I used before the "src color" and "one" bend mode for the rpm LEDs, which is a glow effect, and that's caused the problem. I changed to "src alpha" and "inv src alpha" and the black sccreen is gone. Now is no glow effect, but better than the black screen

    Second Info from same thread:
    Can you try the mirror issue with the update? Because the cockpit window shadow caster caused the black screen, maybe it caused this problem as well.

    Guys...

    Is the latest (last?) version of this mod in the first post?

    Unrestricted v0.43?

    :)
