    Damn, i had a whole bunch of IMSA skins collected and all (except for the latest ones with the new shader) dont seem to work since after yesterday :(.

    I tried fiddling with the VEH file link in the txt but when i changed (all of them to test heh) it it gave me the jackie chan DC racing shader over the custom skin on every car for the Oreca.

    Anyone found a solid workaround for this yet? how do i find the right VEH filename for the old skins? they dont show up at all anymore in the menu's

    Unfortunetly it's a material bug and they're still working on a fix. Objects which you'll place on window glass area will not displayed. It's not your fault...

    Heck I can't get the NEW ones to load. Best I've done is a couple GT3 skins that I can load as the players car but they default back to original skins when used for AI. The one Oreca I tried won't even show up as a duplicate

    Yeah, found the same issue. I'm going to go through and fix all of my installed skins this weekend. I have not gone through the GT3s, but I do know about the Orecas so far.

    1. Seems that the .veh have been renamed in the newest update. You will need to change the reference .veh in the .rcd
    2. The new skin file name is longer than 12 characters. I see this as being a bigger issue in the future as "alt" takes up 3 of the available characters. My personal naming convention of YY Series _ Manufacturer ## (ex 18IMSA_Oreca38.dds) is all ready too long, and then I have to have "alt" in it
    3. In speaking of "alt", that is now needed. That may not prevent the car from showing up ingame, but the custom skin will not load with out it.

    A future improvement that I hop S397 will take into consideration
    1. Having a longer file name limit
    2. One issue I have seen a lot on here lately, is that modders have the file names, named as the driver names. The reason behind that is that it will show the driver name in the standings. Unfortunately becomes an issue when one driver drives in 2 different cars. The game will only show one car, or none at all. I feel that there should be a driver name field in the .rcd so that the file names can be completely separate from the driver name.
    3. Personal preference - the .rcd should be replaced by the current format of the .veh file. Things like GENStrings should be editable from the mod car, and be completely separate from a reference car. Painting Endurance Series mod cars can be a bit difficult if you don't have a Liger with Michelin tires, HPD engine, a certain brake lights etc. I hope that makes sense.

    Nice livery, Well done.
    Shame about the issues but everyone is having the same problems.

    I'm personally not going to share new cars or update the old ones till all these bugs are fix.

    ahhh, i found the new VEH filenames for the Oreca and went and changed them. But still havent figured out how to get rid of the 'original' cars shader of which the skin is on (see shot below)

    upload_2019-2-21_0-15-46.png

    I did change the skin filenames to xxxxxxalt.dds for those which didnt have it, as did i change the veh file name to the new name it was supposed to have.

    Havent figured out how to get rid of the shader/gleam thats over every car with a reskin.

    Thanks a bunch btw, also for your skins & contribution! :)

    Posted this last night https://forum.studio-397.com/index....e-rfactor-2-1-1112-now-available.61715/page-6

    Easy fix for skins not working.
    Create a alt for one off the new cars. This will put a folder in your setting.
    [​IMG]
    Copy the folders name and pasd in the rcd file
    [​IMG]
    Now the skins will show.

    Known issue. These cars don't have a region. They don't really need one because they will load and use the default one in the Main car Mas that contains all the cars textures.
    Issue is the person who put that folder (Mas) together annoyingly but all to common put a livery and it's region into the Main Mas instead off a blank White car and a base region.
    This means the region will ghost through your livery add-on so those "who can" will have to make a base region with Car Paint. Which "should" be the default !!! To cover over someone else's rubbish.
    Sorry for that, Wasn't me. I know better!

    Totally agree if 397 want to remove the creation of new skins from the mas file with virtual rides the rcd file needs to be able do everything the veh file does this includes classes and categories which currently when they are used the talent parameters stop working which is a pet hate of mine hopefully one day the whole virtual ride element will get some dev attention as it’s very clunky atm

    I suck at making skins but is it okay to make a single request here?
    I am a big fan of audi team WRT and their liveries.

    Any chance anyone can make one? Preferably 2016 but anything is okay for me.
