Brabham BT44 added
I tried to open the BT44 template in GIMP but got a fault in layer error. filesize is 66MB much larger then e.g. M23 template... Anyone else having this problem?
i opened it in Photoshop and it worked
Unfortunately another ai is using the same skin ...
yes, gimp can't handle the BT44 template
Error loading PSD file: Unsupported or invalid layer height: -1
That is the only downside unfortunately, there could be multiple Ai using your livery, you installed.
But it is a start in the right direction.
Paint.net is free , and export to dds dxt1, you can open and modify another dds from another user. Or export the layer whit wireframe and open in paint.net and add another layer on top, (no 3d preview)
I use GIMP to edit dds files, but we need something to open the PSD files not supported by GIMP,
I can't open the AMS2_Brabham_BT44_template.psd with Paint.net as-well
Probably this file is saved in another format than the other templates are saved in.
The Template PSD's feature more layers than the dds files do
i opend and saved again in Photoshop.
maybe it helps. Try it
Dropbox - AMS2_Brabham_BT44_template2.rar - Simplify your life
here you have a transparent png layer, you can open with your editor, add your color or decal layer, save as .dds (hiding the wireframe layer)
I forgot about the headlights!
NVIDIA Texture Tools Exporter
this is work for me direct from Photoshop as plugin (i dont now if is not working if you not have a nvidia card), final result is excelent and many options before export
Thanks for the effort, but this file shows the same error, I update GIMP to he latest version
Thanks it gives good guidelines,
I will use quickbms to extract the dds files from the livery files
and use the uv mapping as extra layer
is there a way to force the game to refresh the livery once on track? either live or in a replay?
on shoowroom you can, load another livery go to shoowroom, go back an select your skin and go to shoowroom again
could someone help me with ams2 skins
I didn’t quite understand the procedure of how to place the custom skin replacement inside the simulator
Dowload a car template like those in the first page of this 3d, put the directory in
nope. Totally wrong assumption. Please don't spread wrong information.
That is how i did it in my first example and do it on all my packs.
But you can name all files whatever you want, as long as you enter that name correctly in the xml. Its just a filename and exactly that name you used you'll have to enter in the xml !!!!!
Separate names with a comma.
