    Version 1.62

    Extract to your Online Race07 install

    ...\Steam\SteamApps\**your profile name**\race 07

    If you have any custom skins, you will need to check the .ini file for each skin and make sure that the model is [Vauxhall Vectra 2007]

    e.g.

    This is how the david040799's Martini Vectra.ini from NoGrip should look:

    [[[Martini Team]]]


    [[Massimo Biasion]]
    [Vauxhall Vectra 2007]
    Body=Martini Vectra # 9 Body.dds
    windows=Martini Vectra # 9 Window.dds
    Ext_Driver=Martini Vectra # 9 Driver.dds
    Helmet=Martini Vectra # 9 HELMET.dds
    MenuFlag=Italie flag.tga
    IngameFlag=Italie.tga

    [[Didier Auriol]]
    [Vauxhall Vectra 2007]
    Body=Martini Vectra # 10 Body.dds
    windows=Martini Vectra # 10 Window.dds
    Ext_Driver=Martini Vectra # 10 Driver.dds
    Helmet=Martini Vectra # 10 HELMET.dds
    MenuFlag=France flag.tga
    IngameFlag=France.tga

    those cars look really handsome....
    I assume you still need Crowne Plaza to run these cars.????
    Is it possible to still get the Crowne Plaza add-on?

    I would doubt it as one of the reasons was that you have to download a big demo for just one car, and that still stands. But I agree, it would be nice to see it back.

    It will run side by side with the demo within Race07/GTE Evo.STCC/Race On

    or

    Without the demo...

    Oh right, so this is just the Vectra?

    Are we gonna be able to use it in RC races? Have you cleared it with our staff?

    Yeh that's what I meant, the clearance to use it with our S2000 races. Have you made it less fragile or is it still made of glass? :D

    I didn't know there was a damage model issue, if you can point me in the right direction for the issues, I'll look over the files :) I'll check the .dmg file tonight...

    It just seems very fragile compared to the rest of the S2000 cars, a prang that would normally result in simple aero damage seemed to damage either the gearbox or engine. I remember when I got spun out at Knutstorp and I tapped the barrier and thereafter it would have trouble changing gear. One of many examples I noticed.

    I'm sure other Vectra users will have noticed this.

    Thanx Gunthar, The Vectra's are a great add to the game. Is it possible to skin these cars as I would like to add one to my Indy Oil Team?
