Converting rFactor tracks to GTR2?
« on: December 31, 2007, 12:00:32 pm »
Hey y'all...

I'm looking for a bit of info on how exactly to convert rFactor tracks to GTR2... As I might just have plans to toss a few Renault Turbo 5's around a few rally tracks...

Basically, what do I need to get an rFactor track working in GTR2? Apps, what needs to be done, etc.

Thanks in advance,

~Kyle

for info you can find a well done guide here

http://www.nogripracing.com/details.php?filenr=1861

now a very good conversion requires some more skills (which i dont have) to optimize the textures and other stuff specifically for gtr2.

another problem you might have with a 'straight' conversion is a bad AIW file, sometimes the AIW file in rfactor doesnt work very good for GTR2 (AI car not doing pitstops, ...), and this requires some skills to fix. But sometimes it works without problem.

which tracks would you need ? think most have already been converted, check addon tracks at nogrip or some other popular gtr2 sites

Oho, there's the problem.

I'm converting a dirt track. Thanks for the link and I'll see how far I can push it.

EDIT:  :cry:

Damn. 3dsimed is out of the question. Am I screwed? Probably. Damn. :cry:

hmm yeh, i think its pretty much needed for an easy conversion, it's possible without it but that will require some more knowledge and other expensive programs like 3dsmax

btw, the renault turbo 5 is also available for rfactor (Historic Rally Car mod)

Well, that is another problem. :( rFactor won't start on his computer. :(

But that may be solved soon from what I hear :dunno:

Well, I'm trying the boxed version right now.. Maybe it will start.

If not.. We've got new mobo's and procs on the way.
