    INSTALLATION

    1. Copy the folders inside the archive (Custom Previews & Custom Showrooms) to the following directory:
    C:\Users\[YourUserName]\AppData\Local\AcTools Content Manager\Presets

    2. Open Content Manager and check whether "Use custom showroom for previews" is enabled (Settings>Content Manager>Custom Showroom)

    3. In the Content tab, update the previews of the cars by clicking on the small arrow next to "Update Previews" at the very bottom and select the preset of your choice.

    To update the preview images for ALL cars/skins at once, go to Content>Tools>Update Previews (Launch)>Auto-Select/Tick the skins>Update Previews
    Thanks @ramon31 for that very useful information!

    Be aware, updating the previews might take a while due to the higher resolution the preview images are rendered at.

    For the Custom Showroom Presets to work, simply select the preset of your choice when entering the entering the custom showroom from e.g. the content tab or the car preview picture (right-click).

    Have fun! :)

    When I want to update the preview CM tells me that the showroom is missing and I can´t find an option to "use custom showroom for previews"

      Please make sure that your CM is up to date. Here is a pic that should help you locate the setting(s):

    Looks really good! Love the white one.
    But it takes forever to Update each car.
    Is there a "Update all Cars" option?

      Thank you!
      I honestly have to admit that if there was such an option to update all cars' previews in a single go, I too haven't found it yet.
      Did it the 'hard way' myself, updating car by car.
      Maybe someone else knows?

    Awesome, thank you, still learning though. Must be me (not this) but is a little fiddly getting the car in place?

      Hey Shaun,
      I'm not entirely sure I understand what you mean. Once installed (the presets), all you have to do is update the previews of the cars using the preset variant you prefer.
      You don't have to do any fiddling whatsoever, the cars should be in the right place from the get-go.
      If you're still having trouble please ask away in the support thread!
