    Hi all, just getting into the modding scene here. I'm looking at the database.bin file with the Ryder program. I have the "ai_driver" table open, and my first question is: is this the correct table to essentially slow down the AI drivers?

    if not, where do I need to go, and do, to slow down the AI drivers?
    If so...here's what I've done:

    Copied table values from the original database.bin file to an excel sheet, then applied formulas to the drivers specs for mistakes, speed_in, etc to things like 50% reduction, 90% increase, etc etc.

    So for instance my driver values are like this:

    [​IMG]
    Name Reaction Speed In Speed Out Variance Virt Perf.
    Jenson Button 1 0.49 0.44 1 0.48
    Lewis Hamilton 1 0.5 0.48 1 0.5
    Michael Schumacher 1 0.5 0.45 1 0.47
    Nico Rosberg 1 0.49 0.47 1 0.48

    Rubens Barichello 1 0.5 0.05 1 0.37
    Nico Hulkenberg 1 0.49 0.35 1 0.4
    Robert Kubica 1 0.05 0.05 1 0.49
    Vitaly Petrov 1 0.48 0.35 1 0.32

    Keikki Kovalinen 1 0.5 0.42 1 0.35
    Karun Chandhok 1 0.5 0.05 1 0.25
    Bruno senna 1 0.47 0.35 1 0.35
    Pedro de la Rosa 1 0.5 0.45 1 0.28
    Kamui Kobayashi 1 0.5 0.37 1 0.46
    Timo Glock 1 0.5 0.42 1 0.44
    Lucas di Grassi 1 0.5 0.05 1 0.4
    Nick Heidfeld 1 0.5 0.05 1 0.4
    Pastor Maldonado 1 0.5 0.44 1 0.46
    Paul di Resta 1 0.49 0.37 1 0.42
    Sergio Perez 1 0.47 0.4 1 0.46
    Narain Karthikeyan 1 0.46 0.37 1 0.05
    Jerome d Ambrosio 1 0.5 0.05 1 0.37
    Kimi Raikkonen 1 0.5 0.47 1 0.45
    Romain Grosjean 1 0.47 0.47 1 0.49
    Daniel Ricciardo 1 0.45 0.4 1 0.36
    Jean-Eric Vergne 1 0.5 0.35 1 0.35
    Charles Pic 1 0.5 0.43 1 0.38


    (Sorry the table copied horribly)

    So as you can see I was pretty drastic with this, in order to see if my values were, in fact taking effect in the game, to slow the drivers down, and have them more twitchy/mistake-y. I want this because I play the game with an Xbox controller on PC and its a bit difficult to finely control the car with it...so I'm dumbing the field down to my level so to speak.

    So my final question is this:
    Do I need to make a new profile each time in order for my changes to take effect in game?
    If not, what values and/or tables in the database.bin file do require a new profile to be created?

    Thank you!
