    May 25th 2019, added a tutorial: How to create an Update of an existing Mod at the bottom of the web home page...

    Update May 2019:

    • revised / harmonized / reworked tools for tire size needs
    Improved the accuracy and usability of the Tire Resize and Conversion Tools:
    1 tool has been replaced where you could upload 1 TGM and that did use the SizeMultiplier of the TGM to modify the tire size... now the tool is doing the same thing, but you can upload and modify more TGM files at the same time.

    Another advantage is that you can quickly check the size of tires where the size is unknown.
    The 3 tools are selectable when you click the button "3 Tools to change tire sizes and/or to convert from rFactor 1", that leads you to a new web page and also gives some short info.

    Made by Chris “redapg”, again online with some change and addition, the series of tools that help to:

    • NEW "all-in-one" tool for generating rF2 physics files, converted from rF1
    • improved chassis tool
    • improved tire size tool
    • new special entries generator

    Enjoy them!

    Thank you for putting these back online. I've missed these in the last couple of months. I do understand Chris' reasoning though so again, thanks a lot for getting these back up.

    A new tool has been added: "Get suspension data for the rF2 Physics Calculator from a rF1 HDV and PM files", that greatly helps you in performing the procedure that Michael Borda explained into his blog.
    In addition the tool gives you the chance to modify, with few clicks, the position of the wishbones if wrongly positioned.

    Hi,
    One question about the fixed upgrades tutorial (http://meetme.bplaced.net/rF2_onlin...pdfdownload.php?file=HowTo fixed Upgrades.pdf)
    After following the steps to add fixed upgrades on dedicated server, when a player join a server, does he saw the * character in front of the fixed upgrades?
    because for me and for other drivers joining the server, it doesnt. I had the * character first times because my client profile had locally the fixed upgrades, but if I remove those files and join the server with the fixed upgrades, no more * character !

    A new tool has been added: "Created a basic flex-chassis + HDV entries from rFactor1 files to rFactor2"

    This tool is still WIP and it needs some more work, but it is already working. The tool performs very complex calculations to provide the new files "in one click".
    You must have available the rF1 HDV + PM + TBC files and the TGM files(s) that you want to use into the rF2 mod. Please, read carefully all info and advice during the procedure.

    Please note: the chassis.ini that you get back (and of course the HDV) is different of the auto-generated chassis.ini, because this one has been generated following the Physics Calculator released few time ago by ISI.

    just updated a couple of tools:
    - Created a basic flex-chassis + HDV entries from rFactor1 files to rFactor2
    - create rF2 steering entries for HDV (to be used only if the mod uses the auto-generated chassis.ini in devmode)

    The first one now works better and generates the steering wheel entries too. The second one has more features to manage data and files coming from "autogenerated ingame rigid chassis", "Physics Calculator spreadsheet flex chassis" and the chassis generated by our tool.

    it is, for both normally aspirated and turbo, but we have to thank Chris! I'm only helping and we have a lot of things to follow... but this is our hobby, isn't this?

    Well, added a new great tool: "Convert a rF1 engine.ini into rF2 format" that allows both naturally aspirated and turbo.
    Enjoy it!

    Finally got around to trying out some of the files and just wanted to say thanks. I was using the rf2 Skip Barber files and trying to edit from rf1 files and these tools made things so much quicker and simpler. Look forward to playing around with all of the other tools over the coming months.

    Keep up the great work and thanks again for your time and efforts to make things simpler for those of us with limited time/knowledge.
