PC Skins not showing up?

Discussion in 'Assetto Corsa' started by Grant Saunders, Dec 11, 2013.

  1. I've tried installing a couple of skins which I belive are in the right location but they aren't appearing in game when I try and select them.

    Anyone else having this issue or know a fix?

    Many Thanks

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\lotus_49\skins

    Yes that is the correct place.

    Inside the 'skins' folder should be your additional car's folder, and the actual skin files is within that folder.

    Example :-

    assetto-skins1.png

    Inside that lotus_99t folder will be the actual files :-

    assetto-skins2.png

    If you have a problem with a particular skin or mod, then you can ask for help in the forum thread that is attached to every download.

    Cheers :)

    I know that it may appear like a dumb question to you, but you are selecting the skin correctly?

    Use the little spanner tool to get to the showroom :-

    Then the left and right arrows to scroll to the skin you want, then clicking the selection tool to show 'Skin Selected'

  5. Hi Graham,

    Thanks for posting back but I went through it again and I'm definitely trying to select skins as illistrated but nothing is there to select apart from the standard colour schemes.

    I've tried a couple now, one thing I did notice is that the standard skins that come with the game are a listed as Json files where the custom skins I've tried to use are rar.

    Do I need to convert these?

    Thanks

    Yeah, you have to unpack the files. A rar is almost the same as a zip, a compressed archive, but is more flexible and has better security options.

    Search for winrar or winzip, both pieces of software should unpack the rar files. (Windows handles zip file automatically)

    EDIT:

    7-Zip is free. It will pack and unpack zip files. It can unpack rar files.
