    Sorry if it's been asked already but i couldn't find any post...(im not very good when it comes to search stuff).
    Is it possible to Group.some tracks in the same folder?
    I.e. new monza, monza historic and old monza speedway under same folder in ui in game. Thanks

    Happy new year to everyone:)

    Hi, I asked something similar a while ago and I understand you would have to edit the concerned tracks' files, so I didn't bother, so I don't remember the procedure. I believe it was @Gijs van Elderen who suggested it... but you would find it around the SCE threads.

    Happy new year!

    Happy new year!!!

    Indeed, you'll need to
    - unpack the package file
    - unpack the .mas files in the package
    - edit the files (rename the track)
    - make new .mas files
    - make a new version package from the track

    Note: Your new version will be useless online on a server. Everybody need to have the same package with the same "sig" numbers. It's ok to use for private use offline.

    "Sig" number: Each .mas and package file will get a unique number. This number is like a trace number or a barcode that has to match with the server. So no cheating with adjusting files. ;)

    Hmmm, why not editing the venue name In the gdb?
    Put Monza for the 3 tracks for instance, it should work.

    If you're in a hurry, I think you can try this. Edit (w/ Notepad+, etc) the .gdb files of the 3 tracks and change the 'Venue' to 'Monza'. Else, you can wait for Patrick's feedback.

    I wonder what causes a mismatch on a server... I guess the venue name doesn't... what about the "event name"

    If the file is different, it doesn' t matter where - even an extra space somewhere - it will mismatch on the file.

    Sorry, I did a quick reply without explaining more. As said, notepad Is needed to edit the .gdb
    But i did not pay attention to the fact You would like to run online. Dont know If it causes mismatch with only a venue name change. Need to test

    @Patrick Giranthon, You probably know by now but changing the "venue name" in gdb causes mismatch online :(
    I'm just obsessed by organizing
    Thanks for you help
