    Hey guys! I'm having a few issues creating my own series for my new Mini championship, with completely personalized teams and drivers. I've created the series file (.srs) and it loads up in game as a new file. The vehicle class is set as "World_Mini" in the teams files, and this matches the .srs vehicle filter (OR: World_Mini). However, when I load up into the game, the series is shown, yet none of the teams are shown. When I go to the championship mode, also set up with the correct class (= |World_Mini) it says that it is missing the cars.

    Your help would go much appreciated, and if your idea works, I will add you as a driver into your own personalised team for the new series. Thanks in advance!

    ~ i can't show any screenshots as I run triple monitors, and it freaks out my screenshotting.

    Are the veh files pointed at the correct dds files? Can you at least copy and paste an example .veh file to here for us to see what's wrong, plus copy and paste up to the championship part of the .srs file so we can see how all vehicle filter entries are made.

    I've also copied and renamed all of the graphics, spinner, ect. to make sure that none of the default minis would be included. Ive copied and renamed the files MINI.hdv for example to WORLD_MINI.hdv in both the vehicle files and the actual .hdv file itself.

    Steam13.veh file

    Also when you create a new class you can give it his own name.

    Gamedata / Vehicles / World_Mini (Make a new folder with World_Mini in your Vehicles dir)
    Put there all new cars in.

    You are using the same physics as the mini?

    When you use the same physics than you can not rename the .hdv the .gen and the .sfx files, because this are hidden files

    Than you must do this:

    HDVehicle=Mini_Challenge\MINI_CHALLENGE.hdv
    Graphics=Mini_Challenge\MINI_CHALLENGE.gen
    Spinner=Mini_Challenge\MINI_CHALLENGE_Spinner.gen
    GenString=BLB
    Cameras=World_Mini_cams.cam
    Sounds=Mini_Challenge\MINI_CHALLENGE_Sounds.sfx
    HeadPhysics=WORLD_MINI_headphysics.ini
    Cockpit=WORLD_MINI_cockpitinfo.ini
