    Hi,

    I have downloaded the F1 1992 & 1994 mods ages ago and played them successfully up until the recent update to the driver arms however when I choose a track and try to load either of them, the game just crashes.

    I see others have had problems with various skins and mods and have simply added a reference to the upgrades.ini, in each .veh file, however I noticed mine already had these as this example shows below...

    HDVehicle=1994F1.hdv
    Graphics=B194_06.gen
    Spinner=B194_06_Spinner.gen
    GenString= // Used to generate GMT names in *.gen file
    Cameras=B194_cams.cam // Defaults to cams.cfg in UserData directory
    Sounds=Ford_HB.sfx
    HeadPhysics=1994headphysics.ini // Affects driver eyepoint only
    Cockpit=B194_cockpitinfo.ini
    Upgrades=B194_upgrades_06.ini
    AIUpgradeClass=


    I did however notice that the upgrades files did not have any reference to the Arms update, so I added one for each upgrades.ini file in each vehicle folder for the mod, as show below for the 1994 Bennetton...


    UpgradeType="Driver arms in cockpit"
    {

    Instance="WHEEL"
    Instance="DRIVER"

    UpgradeType="Driver arms in cockpit"
    UpgradeLevel="Arms Off"
    {
    Description=""
    GEN=<ARMSA>=B194_ARMS_OFF.gmt
    GEN=<ARMST>=B194_ARMS_ON_A.gmt
    GEN=<ARMSB>=B194_ARMS_ON_B.gmt
    GEN=<ARMSC>=B194_ARMS_ON_C.gmt
    }

    UpgradeLevel="Arms On"
    {
    Description=""
    GEN=<ARMSA>=B194_ARMS_ON_A.gmt
    GEN=<ARMST>=B194_ARMS_ON_A.gmt
    GEN=<ARMSB>=B194_ARMS_ON_B.gmt
    GEN=<ARMSC>=B194_ARMS_ON_C.gmt
    }
    }


    After doing this for ALL the updates files (swapping B194 for whatever the corresponding car)
    I fired up the mod again but still it crashed upon track load.

    Originally I was getting an error message that popped up in a dialog box that said 'UNKNOWN_TOKEN_ARMSA' but now the game just crashes to desktop.

    Has anyone else experienced a similar issue and know how to fix?
