what about 3 drivers in one car? 3, 1 hour stints. i think this may be the best way to go. plus its just like le mans :)


Like I said. You do as you see fit. I would love for more cars on track instead of more people in a car, but again, you do as you see fit.

Me Caspar and Gizmoto will probably be 3 people in 2 cars. swapping between cars doing 2/3 of the race each.

I know I'm being a bit anal, but how would this work with points allocation?

edit: errrrr, just worked it out - car 1 and car 2 score the points yeah? not so much drivers. I see, I think

It has to be worked on a bit with the points thingy.
But it will be done. I am thinking about it.

Gizmoto is a master with points, so I will lend his advice alot.

I love this idea.  But I hate this game and I hate this mod, but I'm going to have to forget about because this has to be done.  But I am going to have to find a car that I feel right in.  P2 or GT2.

Updated first post with driverswapping guide.
Read it carefully if you are planning to use it and practice with your teamates. Very important that you get your tactics set up when swapping. VERY IMPORTANT TO PRACTICE. :salute:

To use these "Bright_Headlights" just put the file "HL_2_PLR.DDS" in your "Vehicles" folder.  Then edit the "<car_name_here>.gen" with the following information (Making this change in the gen file will not cause online mismatches):

Projector=Headlight
{
Moveable=True Dyn=True Active=False Pos=(0.0, 0.10, -77.2) Dir=(0.0, -0.5, -1.0) Radius=(28.0) Blend=(InvDstColor, One) Texmap=HL_2_PLR.DDS
}

I was going to add this to the first post when I got back home. did not have time yesterday to do it. Yes this is a good thing to have at night. And there will be night races (24 hours)

I will add this to the first post aswell when I get home.

Again. Read the driverswap guide if you wanna use driverswap in your team. Also read on how to use individual setups for each driver if you wanna do that.
Everything is in the guide.

}


Pardon me for being useless at this kind of stuff, but I have some questions.
I D/L the bright lights, unpacked the HL_2_PLR.DDS file.
Opened gameData, vehicles and placed it at the bottom of the list, is this correct or should I open the SCC folder and place it in there?
Next, when I open the SCC folder/AudiR8 I see the AudiR8short (and long).gen files, when I go to open them I get a message from windows (vista) telling me I can not open this, do I want to select a program to open it with, or search the net for one. Could someone explain what I need to open the file and if possible post a link to where I can D/L something to open it with, so I can adjust the lights.
Thanks
Mike

EDIT, thanks works a treat

good to see more are coming on board, I would love to see more cars though as this series looks to be a great test.
As we are only about a week off could we have some more detail pls on times laps and official prac and when servers will be up so driver swaps can be tested etc. Could we also have the links for the upcoming tracks added so I can check to see I have the right version and do some off line testing etc.

Adrien (popo) can be added to the front page as a co-driver for Team Aus and we will be competing in an Audi.
