    After a lot of hard work from Miek and I...

    Ryder CTF Editor

    version 1.2.2013.0106
    With this program you can edit CarTuningFile (CTF,CSV) files for the EGO engine games. These files contain car performance data.

    Features:
    • Intuitive GUI -- The graphics user interface has been built to allow maximum ease of use when editing files.
    • Easy Compare -- Aside from the files' data being lined up side by side, with the click of a button the program will show you all the differences between the files.
    • Community Involvement -- Schema files for each game are in xml format so that modders can edit descriptions of their findings for the file's values and share them with each other.
    • Open With -- Allows you to choose "Open With" and select this program to open CTF files.
    Changelog

    Admin thinks we have too many sticky threads already but admin will make some changes today or tomorrow. I'll sticky the thread for now, so that I don't miss it once I'm getting things done.

    Don't worry, I'll take care of it. ;)

    17:17: all done.

    Does this mean car performance can be changed along with tiers?

    I only got to play around with the values a little bit in game as I had to spend a lot of my time working on the app, so I don't know very much at all. Besides, you guys are the modders, and I can only get you this far. Test things and figure it out ;)

    I really changed some thing where Car get Top acceleration and even top gear will be very easy to reach in Short straights
    it looked for me like sitting in a F1 car with a Rocket booster Behind
    after that i forgot which value i changed to get the Effect :D
    I request people who find new things please post here about Which Value they changed and What was the result.
    So that we can push the Car's to real performance (if possible 2012 or 2011)

    If you didn't change too many things it may be easy to find what you changed by opening both the original and modded file and then pressing the show/hide differences button.

    wow, awesome. ENGINE_DRIVETRAIN_CLASS, choose from Front, Rear, Four. you can now make you F1 car a 4WD! codemasters must have had this value so they could configure EGO values for their other games like Dirt, etc.

    PS* Haven't tried this value yet, but DRIVETRAIN does mean Front, Rear or Four Wheel Drive.
