    As the title states, I'm trying to figure out how to extract textures and the file names primarily for the 2020-23 stock cars to edit the glass for custom numbers and names. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Yes I have. From what i can see there was no window or banner template for the stock cars. Also was wanting to extract the base liveries to use as a guide for sponsors

    Go to Automobilista 2\Pakfiles\Vehicles and make a copy of Stock_Corolla_23_Livery.bff, for example.

    Use QuickBMS (with the nfsshift.bms plugin) to extract the livery file ... any window stickers, etc. are in there. Make new ones to spec & repackage for your mod.

    Hey there,
    Tried to replicate this and had the following error message :

    offset filesize filename
    ------------------------------

    Error: the specified offset can't be reached


    Are you still able to do it on your own?

    It’s always worked for me, like when the LMDh and new GT3 cars were released during the current beta cycle. Which vehicle’s file are you trying to open?

    Thanks for your quick reply, I was indeed aiming at LMDhs (BMW) as well as GT3s gen2

    I’m not at my computer and I’m no expert, but I always extract the contents of the file into a different folder than the source file itself. Essentially, I place the source file in an Input folder and extract its contents to an Output folder. Launch quickbms, pick the nfshift script, select the source file (copied to my Input folder) and output to the Output folder

    That's very strange. I am trying the exact same process but I can't seem to make it work. Frustrating. Is there anywhere i can reach to you? discord?
