    Wow, another magic tool by Chris!

    Why wasting your time for creating the several icons now in use with the new UI?

    Thanks to Chris we have now the way to generate all icons we need, automatically and in a while, providing only one "icon" in PNG at the max resolution!

    More detailed info are shown in the tool itself that is now listed into the main page: http://meetme.bplaced.net/rF2_onlineTools/

    Many thanks for this! :cool:

    I've updated the tutorial I wrote to include this link. It's vastly superior and streamlined compared to the manual batch file process I had.

    After having added new tools, now it's time of restructuring the whole site... It will take time and I'll post again once all will be finalized.

    Everything will work as well, so you are free to use the tools, but, please, post or pm me or email Chris in case you get some error.

    Thank you.

    LOL
    My explanation wasn't clear... restructuring refers to the internal code and management of scripts, folders, files..., nothing that can be seen by users.

    Great tool, thanks very much! Sadly the biggest work in the process is still deleting the background behind the car and making this transparent. This must be done manually. Do you have any tips?

    Hello all together.
    I have let reactivated my Forum Accout, to be able to directly post here again.
    At first, let me thank @Slow Motion, for being the "Wire to the Forum" for me. :)
    And, of course, let me thank all of you, for using the Tools.
    If you ever get Problems, please inform me.
    rFactor 2 is still WIP and Changes in it's Code can have Effects on the Tools.
    So if Problems appear, i need to know it, to be able (if possible) to improve the Tools. ;)

    Small question, maybe just a knot in my head but i dont think so ;)

    I converted a car from rf1 to rf2, used your tools to convert the rf1 tbc and added an tgm from another car (That is the tire i want to use for player and ai).
    Am I correct that the player uses my "new" tgm tire but the ai still uses the old tbc tire?

    So, i need to edit the tbc, too?

    If you did upload the rF1 TBC and the TGM that you want to use and did edit nothing by Hand, the Tool adapts the Sizes of the TGM to the Sizes in the TBC automatically, by using the Size Multiplier.
    And yes, if nothing has been changed in the Games Code, the human Player uses the TGM and the AI uses the TBC.
    You could compare the max Speed, that you can achive with the default Setup, with the max Speed of the AI.
    For example on the Indianapolis Oval.
    They should be the same as close as possible.
    If that is the Case, it is an Indicator that the Tire Sizes of TBC and TGM are OK.
