    Phoenix Racing Asia skin from Blancpain Asia... not a very popular skin but a very good testbed for the new shaders ;-)
    Its amazing how great the cars look with these new shader...

    Hello, most of the time the cars have the same graphics on the right side as on the left side, so i paint just the left side and mirror the graphics when finished to the right side... most of the pixel by pixel alignemnt is done via the grid (first layer in photoshop/Gimp) and then quality control ingame and so on... you can go closer with the mouse - right mouse button and push or pull the mouse

    I'd prefer not to (or make it as an alternative skin)

    well, I spent the day finishing it off and the last 2hrs getting PO'd beyond believe trying to work out how to save the friggin thing to share. Why is EVERYTHING in RF2 such a PITA. :angry face: and I am still none the wiser. and frankly now could not be bothered with it.

    I took the whole working cars folder zipped it up, installed on a different OS RF2 install to test and it doesn't show up In the list

    I'd be happy to do an alternate with the Pirelli sponsors as it is in real life, but I 'd settle for knowing how to save the stupid things to work elsewhere.

    sorry my rant but yer kinda frustrated now.

    this is what I had and worked on my editing install and copied straight into my sim install and it doesn't work.

    Did you created a virtual Ride folder (with RCD file)? You need this that your skin will be displayed in the selektion menue.
    And please name it "alt_IceBreakeB12H..." without "_" between the name!

    Agree. I think it's naming issue.

    Make sure the drivers name "Jaxon Evans" is spelt correctly in the rcd ini file.

    At this time I had no problems to share any skins. What you need is to include the *.rcd file into your zip/rar file. And please rename it from e.g. "1.rcd" to "your skin.rcd". If people have already a "1.rcd" (automatically created) this file would be overwritten.

    ok i got this far....
    worked out how to have an alternate livery. (one with Michelin & one with Pirelli stickers)
    all worked whilst sitting under the car i first made a DIR with.
    when i made the CAR/DRIVER i now only have one skin in that team ??? why not the two that were there when i made the NEW CAR/DRIVER FROM CURRENT ?

    at least i see the .rcd you mentioned now :)

    so how do i get the two skins under the one CAR/DRIVER

    EDIT: I manually copied the other skins files into the NEW car and it now has two skins... but only 1 MAS file. Is this now ready to zip up with the renamed .rcd ?

    EDIT 2: and now one of them decides to stop using the window file.

    For that, I actually load it in the track. It is a PITA to do it that way at it takes so long to load. That gives a few more camera options than the showroom has.I posted that as a suggestion as the showroom is now the official confirmation on how the S397 to allow you to view cars ingame, that they need to update the camera system to allow for extra zooming in, panning and light changes. Hopefully they will change that.

    @SimRacingRob

    I guess that should be the cause of your problem with the IceBreak_B12H livery :)

    Edit: Ah, Frank already told you to leave out the _, I just saw that. I didn't notice it because I was looking for someone mentioning that 12 char limit.

    @philmcqueen I love your livery overview, it's a great addition. But as a passionate painter (not yet for rFactor 2), can you maybe consider linking to the RD page of a livery instead of re-uploading it?

    From a painter's point of view, I'd prefer that by a mile. With RD you can a) keep track of your statistics (number of downloads, comments) and b) easier handle updates/version control - not sure if the notification for the user is default setting, but usually I get a notification when a resource I downloaded earlier is uploaded.

    On the other hand, you're quality assurance (same name mismatches) is also a great benefit for the user.

    Thanks, i can work on that to link directly to RD , but mismatches will have like i had testing all liveries.
    I´ll could maybe make a full "no mismatches" package and put individual link to RD.....
    Or i will find a different way... ;)
