    Hi guys,

    I know there are a lot of topics about the rcd file and I read them all; you have to match up the name from the veh "classes" line, name the rcd the same way. Make the names the same as in the mods veh files.

    Been there, done that.
    To see if it works; I gave one driver a lot less.
    You feel it coming, right?
    He drives just like the others while he should have a few seconds extra.

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance!

    In devmode?
    Is the 'classes' name written into the rcd file?
    Have you put the rcd file into the talent folder?
     
    Stockers and Navigator like this.

    Sorry, no; in the normal game.
    The name is in the rcd too, yes.
    I have no seperate folder for the talent; its just in between the physics files, like I saw in other mods.

    I have found the syntax of the code can cause this issue. Removing as many variables as possible makes it simpler to figure out. Is there any code before the drivers code in the talent file? Like different step distances for different tracks? If so try removing everything but the default step distance & drivers code (if that makes sense).

    Yes but having a quick look at your code I think you have a misplaced curly bracket. Try removing the one I marked in red.

    when dealing with rcd files, try to find one with ISI comments included for each line. There usually is a set range where the file operates properly and the comments often contain the available range. If you enter a number that is too small or too large it will invalidate the entire rcd. Looks like you got it working tho, just a reminder for future editing. Good Luck.

    Thanks mate; that is a good idea.
    I never saw such a file for the rcd though; all others yes, but no rcd.
    I will look for it again, thanks!

    Hi, an RCD question !
    Should there be a space between brackets of the drivers no space between brackets ?

    I have no spaces but my guess would be that it doesn't matter. Other than making it more readable. Why do you ask? Is it causing a problem?

    Thanks for the reply toebee,
    No, it does not seem to be working, I tried the above tip to remove the doubled brackets first but still no go.
    I will post my RCD here if you can take a look, I have been trying to get this working for ages as we race with one local, one online and 18 AI so a working AI would increase the realism somewhat.
    I changed the extension as RCD files do not seem to be allowed.

    I don't see anything that would keep it from working. Technically you are missing a closing curly bracket at the end, but I don't think that would keep it from working. Is "Brandon.hartley" a typo? IDK if that period could affect things. Is "ACFL F2018 RF2" the name of the classes listed in the VEH files? Have you tested this in single player or DevMode? I would try to eliminate as many variables as possible. Test it with a very basic RCD.
    Code:
    //[[gMb1.002f (c)2017    ]] [[            ]]  
    ACFL F2018 RF2
    {
        default
        {
            StepDistance = 3.5
            StepSpeed1 = 18.0
            StepSpeed2 = 38.0
            StepSpeed3 = 55.7
            StepSpeed4 = 69.5
            StepSpeed5 = 88.6
            StepSpeed6 = 113.0
            StepSpeed7 = 150.0
            StepSpeed8 = 185.0
        }
        Lewis Hamilton
        {
            Nationality = British
            DateofBirth = 07-1-1985
            Starts = 209
            Poles = 73  
            Wins = 62
            DriversChampionships = 4
            Aggression = 100.0
            Composure = 100.00
            Speed = 100.0
            QualifySpeed = 0.0
            WetSpeed = 95.00
            Crash = 0.00
            Recovery = 100.0
            CompletedLaps = 100.00
            MinRacingSkill = 100.00
        }
    }
    That should force Lewis Hamilton to qualify last every time if everything is setup properly.

    Thanks toebee,
    Missed the Lewis entry !
    No, this is the whole RCD but the mod maker is dyslexic I think due to the amount of name spelling mistakes.
    Have not tried Dev Mode or single player and still want to look at the VEH files this week.

    I'm fighting with .rcd files too. I'll clean up them as toebee recommends. Has anybody a .rcd file with comments?

    BTW, there are two Pierre Gasly on that file.

    Yeah, that was quite a few mod versions ago ;)
    What mod are you working on ?
    And "with comments" do you mean explanations ?
