    well, it looks like codies have changed the files, no way to open the files with EPE as the format is now called NEFS

    Patience, young padawan. :) In the coming weeks some bright spark will likely figure out how they can be opened/unpacked/modified. Are you already wanting to modify the base game on day one?! :roflmao:

    They sure love making their games difficult to mod.

    Nothing as of yet, I'm keeping an eye on the usual modders pages to see if they've written anything yet

    is it the same layout with reference to when using EPE and skins?

    Only asking as I'm wanting to add the WD40 fiesta into DiRT Rally and put the correct names on the car too

    No, due to the extraction process still being very primitive it changes all the file names and such. Ive already tried packing it back up but it crashes the game at the moment. :(

    So far, yes :) once the extracted files are renamed to pssg they work exactly the same as usual.

    Are the cars, that already appeared in DR, the same in D4? I mean, can I just coipy liveries from DR to D4? Already made some HB liveries in DR - just copy & paste would be simple :whistling:

    Any updates? Doest it seem possible to mod the Branding Suite Car Patterns? Looking forward to getting my hands on the 3D models and textures. Hope some of you guys will figure it out :D
