    Hey guys, going to ask a question and I should really know better.

    I've had rFactor for a long time but never actually painted a car, and I decided today that I was going to learn how. I don't have Photoshop so I'm trying to use Gimp 2.8 instead. It's all good, except the colours that I use show up like a metallic colour ingame, and I simply cannot get a solid black colour (it's goes metallic instead).

    Anyone have any idea how I can get a solid black colour? I have a feeling it's something to do with Alpha and all of that stuff, but I'm not canny enough to figure that out.

    Thanks heaps in advance

    If the alpha channel is white or a light grey colour, the car will look more light, glossy. try darkening the alpha channel.
