    Where is the 'Custom Previews' folder!!! I can use the wonderful showrooms fine in the AC showroom, but why can't I put them in the Content Manager Custom Showroom?!? I know you have detailed the path to put them in, but I ain't seeing it there.....

    Hi
    Does your Content Manager look like this? Does it let you load showrooms and presets from the red arrows?

    I don't know if I understood everything you said but now I make you questions and we try to fix it little by little. :)

    Do you have installed the latest version of Content Manager?

    Do you have enabled "Update to non-tested versions" option in Settings>Content manager>General? Enable it if not.

    Do you have enabled "Use Custom showroom for previews" option in Settings>Custom Showroom? Enable it if not.

    Are you using Content Manager to take the screenshots? Use it to be able to use my presets and get high quality screenshots.

    If you can't find the path try to search for it, "AcTools Content Manager", on your whole C hard drive, maybe your Windows installs this program to another directory.

    Ask me if you need more help.

    I wish there would be a tutorial around how to take screenshots with your wonderful showrooms. Can you tell how to take screens in CM?

    Unfortunately still having issues...I can't use everything I want to and I have no idea how to get screenshots out of it.

    I can't select any presets and I appear to still be missing some features? It looks slightly different for me:

    Hi

    Follow this mini guide.


    [​IMG]
    Open Content Manager, go to content and select a car. Then click Update previews>>Options.


    [​IMG]
    Then click "Switch To CM Showroom" if you have not done yet.


    [​IMG]
    Then go to scene and select a preset or a showroom and take a screenshot by clicking the [+] icon.


    Remember to have the latest version of Content Manager, version 0.8.882.17282 or higher, by enabling "Update to non-tested versions" option in Settings>Content manager>General.

    Hope it helps. :)

    Pressing the + icon does not do a screenshot...?! It just updates the preview picture. Or do you mean that with screenshot?

    Yes, just updates the preview picture with a small dimensions screenshot.

    If you want a fullscreen screenshot just press F11 and then click the [+] icon.

    Ask me if you need help more help. :)

    Okay, so I did that and got the screenshot saved as the preview image. I have two questions.

    1) How can I make the program generate a 3840x2160 resolution image even if I only have a 1080p monitor? Does the CM use dynamic super-resolution (and in that case how do I enable it?)

    2) When I take the screenshot, it's divided into two halves down a diagonal in the middle. I'll post a picture, but nevertheless it means I can never get a clean image to be output. Is there a solution for this?

    Many Thanks!

    Hi :)

    I don't know both questions.

    You should ask at the official forum: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/content-manager-aka-alternative-launcher.33824/
