  3. This skin is, as I said before, very amazing.
    Just one thing: Michelin tyres on a Pirelli-sponsored livery/car?
    Aside from that, your job is marvelous.

    I now, but I don't have the skills to change the tyres :(
     
  5. Hey you can use chargingcar's tyre megapack, I'm pretty sure he has a Pirelli there (I was yet to use it though).
    Just use the tyre template that is compatible with the Audi and you're good to go!
    Just don't forget to credit him if you decide to use his template.

    Hey,

    Here is a link maybe helps you to understand the situation better: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/audi-r8-lms-falkenberg-12-03.5663/ (couldn't delete the logo on hood, but your skin has no logo on hood..)

    I was trying to delete the logo on hood so wanted to use detail files of your skin.. But then I realized mine is not the same car with yours.. Mine is lms yours is lhm.. So, nevermind..

  8. Well, I got bad news for you...
    ...but first things first, a brief explanation of how to install the tyres.
    Just put the tyre files you want to the folder of the skin you want to change. Make sure the tyres are compatible with the car.
    Here's a picture preview:

    And now to the bad news...
    You see, the SimTex-TireFactory-Megapack is designed only for GT and Lotus Exos cars.
    I tested it earlier and it fitted snugly with GT cars like the McLaren, BMW, etc. and also went well with the Lotus Exos.
    Examples:

    However, when I tested it on the Audi... :

    It just won't change! I suppose the author of the Audi used a different kind of tyre template than that of the GT cars SimTex-TireFactory-Megapack is compatible with.
    ...
    I am so sorry to have given you bad news.

    My R8 keeps crashing on startup with the latest AC update. Is there any way to sort it out?

    Jus modify the aero.ini in data directory.

    [HEADER]
    VERSION=2

    and delete all the [DATA] section in the same file.

    Allan, many thanks.....top job :)
     
  12. Allan,
    don't wanna be the one, but have to tell you.
    The Pirelli sponsor is across the windshield, but you're riding on Michelin's.
    Otherwise great job, just don't let Pirelli know about the Michels, hi.
     
  13. To be honest, the tyres can't be changed.
    I've tried changing it with chargingcar's tyre textures, won't work.
    I've tried custom-making the tyre textures, won't work too.
    I honestly don't know what to do with them.
    (Maybe changing the sponsor, if it niggles you anyway)

    I won't tell :)
     
  15. It all looks easy at first, a little deeper into the project and problems over problems will surface.
    Understand, not all goes as we want it to.
    Thanks for your replies....
