    Hi,

    I'm quickly working on a custom skin for the SR3.

    Created the custom folder. The alt.dds file is sitting there as usual.

    However when I overwrite it with a new one, the game seems to be ignoring it? Tried clicking on refresh a few times but no change.

    Even tried creating a new custom folder for a different car and moving that file across (in case I was saving in the wrong format for example). Nope the alt.dds file is still being ignored.

    Just checking before I go any further, with the livery competition and so on, did Studio397 put something in place that stopped custom liveries on this car?

    I've done about 20 liveries on RF2 so I assume i know all the procedure but correct me if you think I've done something wrong.

    Thanks in advance :)

    EDIT: OK, my apologies. Tried a few more times and now it works, really odd! Maybe the PC was busy doing something in the background and that slowed RF2 down. Works now anyway.

    That's good, glad I wasn't the only one! :)

    Yeah I was just about to give up and then all of a sudden it worked. I see the template texture is slightly larger than normal at 4k. However that's never been an issue before (I've even done a 6k texture once to see if it would work) but seems ok now.

    I also usually save the texture in uncompressed format as it's faster loading into the game to start with.

    Nice avatar by the way (FD RX7 Twin Turbo owner :) )
