Gianluca
GenString=MBFG411

Is the correct line for the fuel filler to show up ingame but for some reason
i cant get it to show up this could also be something that may need to be
changed in 3dsimed or it could be something to do with the Alpha layers in the template
something again i dont really understand .....

It worked in GTR2 but not in Rfactor .... Wink

I actually feel a bit bad about this as the car looks wonderful, butI'd like to point out you've used a modern Castrol logo. Although I do admit that searching for period-correct logos can be a pain in the arse - in this case too, as the font's been fairly similar since the 60s Razz

OK guys i have change some things
- wrong Mercer name
- wrong castrol logo and RED colour of the car
- WSC logo different size on right and left
- ---- scratch
I hope not to forget other things...

Carl about the windows, it is more difficoult for me ... i cant help you, but in 3dsimedt the front banner material are "wcextra1" instead the lateral windows are named "m1testwin_old" or "m1testwin" and not EXTRA1 material, then it does not address the proper texture... i think...
We would add, that in the folder (\Vehicles\ProCar\Procar) there are the file M180windows_in.dds that could override all other textures of the windows.

With more probability the probem are that in the folder (\Vehicles\ProCar\Procar)
there are this files:


m180va1.gmt = GenString=MBFG111
m180va2.gmt = GenString=MBFG211
m180va3.gmt = GenString=MBFG311

Ok now What's missing?
missing the

m180va4.gmt = GenString=MBFG411

now can copy as M180VB.GMT and rename with m180va4.gmt because this files recall the EXTRA windows.

I think but im not sure of this ... :rigol:

For the le mans car you need to set = GenString=MBFA411 = m180va4.gmt
you need a GMT file "m180va4.gmt" to put in \Gamedata\Vehicles\ProCar\Procar.

Gianluca if we re-pack the mas file will any of the NEW gmt files overwrite OLD .gmt files ...

I Do not want to re-pack the Masfile until we are sure we have ALL the files we need for the complete Masfile ...

The #111 MK Motorsport car works great wheel and fillers works great
but the castrol car the filler is nearly transparent ....
Not sure why but you are moving in the right direction .... :top: :clap:

I Did not like this car before but it really suits these wheels :clap:

I Think your right about the screen colour for some reason the screens
show up all different shades of transparency ....

This is an area we could improve upon ...

Basically all the wheels we have for the 1979/1980 Procar season need to be Mostly Goodyears
and any cars for the 3rd add on season , Le Mans 24hour ,DRM and Rennsport Trophae ,Imsa
cars should be Dunlop ,Goodyear Or Avon .....

So yes we do need quite a few extra wheels and Tyre combinations ....

What you have to remember is that most of the Procars from 79/80 raced with Goodyears ...

The problem with some pics is it might be the right car but thr wrong year , many of these cars would
have raced in some form or another with probably different tyres so if we stick with the Goodyears for
these two seasons we wont go far wrong ....

I Suspect that this picture is taken more recently with a different tyre supplier ... Wink
