    Usually you have to edit the alpha layer in the dds files for the cars/skins/drivers. RF1 needed a much brighter (almost white) alpha channel but in AMS you typically need it to be much darker. When I have moved any mods from RF1 to AMS I have had to edit every alpha channel in every single DDS file to help reduce the glare.

    This is pretty much the color that (usually) works best for the alpha channel:

    Hello. Yes of course.
    Open the scn file and search for "helicopter". Then blank it out like this:
    //Instance=helicopter

    I just tested it and it worked fine. ;)

    Yes, very useful. There are a couple of tracks where I have wanted to do that.

    Hello,
    Some weeks ago i tried to make a conversion via rfactortools to bring the BMW 320 E21 from DMatzies to AMS. I like this high revving Formula 2 engine in this small Car, feels different to the Turbo 320. In game the mod appears, all liveries are listed, but no car is displayed. Showroom shows me the available upgrades but there is no car to see. Any suggestions, what can i do?

    Did a second and a third run, but no success:(. I cannot see a big difference to the 320 turbo model from DRM and this runs smooth.

    Sorry I missed this @sci006 -- I cannot seem to send you a PM mate?
