    I use Photoshop but I think Gimp is similar. Open the windows file and set the highlight level to about 220 in the levels option. The windows file highlight usually needs to be set to about 220 in the levels on the Oreca even if it's coloured. Hope you find this of help.

    I just downloaded and it worked fine. Just unzip and place the the altwindow.dds file into your car skin folder and click reload in in the showroom of rf2 and it should work, it will create a new mass file in the skin folder. I tried gimp a while ago and l couldn't get on with it, so I will be sticking with photoshop, I found photoshop the easier program to use, so I can't answer any questions about gimp. Hope this is of help.

    @FuNK! Its not the skin and colors thats the problem, its when exporting windows to alpha dds. Would like to see your result of my gimp xcf file in the altwindow.zip file from this post: https://forum.studio-397.com/index....f2-car-skins-here.33862/page-158#post-1021171
    and if you can make i it better with gimp then tell me what I did wrong. I have tried everything with outputs colorlevels etc.

    Until then I use @Highlandwalker's photoshop version.

    Are your sure it's transparent? To me it is looking like it is just the white "glare" from the lights. Different showrooms have different lights, which is why for Highlandwalkers screen shot, it looks good, but yours do not, using the default showroom and the simple white one (I forgot what its called).

    Part of the overexposure is that the windscreen texture is not IBL, like the WCCARBODY. So you might have to play with the color like what Highlandwalker also said. You might be able to use the abido map as well to help dial it in.

    Hope that helps.

    I've enjoyed the Legends races on The Race :)
    I have trouble keeping track of who is driving each car with the generic liveries, so I painted up a couple of cars in a "sorta-kinda" style.
    I tried to leave room for the driver names, and the rF2 and The Race logos, which i don't have

    MAS livery for each of those four here, plus the template, if anyone wanted to paint up the rest of the drivers ;)
