PostSubject: Problem with new paintjobs...   Sat 27 Oct 2018, 11:00 pm

Not sure if this is the right forum, please feel free to move it to the right place, if its not. Nontheless, I'll ask straight ahead:

Following problem: I'm trying to put a new paintjob into P&G (a Lotus Elan), therefore I create a new folder with all the relevant files, change the 'number'-line in the CAR-file, rename all the textures I unpacked before to match the new number, repack everything, start the game and...


...nuffin' happens.



If I drop that texture (actually a plain white one to check things) into an existing car's folder, it works. If I go and replace the textures in the GTR-file of a working car, it works, too. If I try to load the renamed package, the trace file tells me:

O_BaseGz.cpp 8759: CUBE error loading scene file USERDATA\tmpvehicle.scn: Error loading global material WC_TEAM_BODY1_PA

I'm running a bit out of ideas what the issue is. Any pointers? Thanks in advance.

You also need to replace the original car number references inside the various gmt files found in the LOTUS_ELAN26R_MASK file.

Hm, I already wondered why there are extra body-GMT's in the mask-GTR. Gonna have a closer look at them. Thanks for the moment, I'll let you know Smile

GOOD

Actually, for the moment I just removed the MTS-files from the MASK-file, so it has to fall back on the bodies from the OBJ.GTR-file. That's okay for a paint booth dummy to simply check things ingame, but I'll have a closer look at it when making standalone. Smile

It's usually easy to change the car number references in the gmt files. I'm using a program called Notepad++. Just remember to always use the same number of figures/letters (5 for P&G cars) as the one being replaced or otherwise the gmt will get corrupt and not working.

Ah, simple text editing like in good ole' F1C-days. Trying that over a 3D-programme drove me a bit nuts...

Thank you for your help! Smile
