    i have used btb for about 2 years now but for some reason my last 3 tracks have had unusual problems. i dont think i have done anything any differently but here is my situation. i create dirt oval tracks. i like to split the track into 2 or 3 terrains all with different grip amounts to try to achieve multiple racing lines through the corners. in my last 3 tracks i always have 1 or 2 of the terrains non drivable. i can pull onto the track and run the top but as i try to move to the middle or bottom of the track my car goes into nuetral and resets me back on to the top of the track.


    i scrapped the first track this happened on and started fresh. using different materials and yet i still had the same problems

    http://www.mediafire.com/?ql2tyrcqf19t1ae here is a link to the track if you would like to try it . you will need to create a xxx folder in your locations and drop this in along with a generic btb sky file

    Check in BTB that the materials ([​IMG]) each have 'rfactor material name' set.

    yes, as usual i reset the names to top, middle, and bottom. then in the tdf file i change the roaddrygrip values, then i also change the road to top, middle, or bottom

    Everything looks fine. I've even tried splitting the track into three gmts for each material, and there's car still resets. In BTB, make sure you haven't accidentally put a space in the material property. That's all I can think of.

    everything looks normal on my end, this one really has me puzzled. i created a new track today from scratch and still the same problem. but if i go back and change the track to 1 texture, leave it as roada, everything works fine

    I just changed the material names to roada_top and roada_bottom and then changed the .tdf to match and all works ok.
    Rfactor will accept _ in file names but it also prefers its own naming convention, this is 1 way to skirt around it.
