.svm files

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by ooncho, Aug 2, 2011.

  1. what program is used to open files with the .svm extension?
    thanks
     
  2. It's a setup file, you use it from within the game. But you can open them with Notepad, plain text files.

    You don't need to open them, but place the file directly in your RACE 07 setups folder to see them in the game.
     
  4. more than likely, he wants to compare two setups an needs to have a default program to open them.

    Good luck to him! I don't find the svm files usefull for comparison at all.
    I'd love to have a setup comparator like the one that was available for EA's F1 sims.
     
  6. What kind of a comparator was that?
    If it's just plain comparing of values from two files, that's not that difficult to do. Doubt it was that though, don't see much use for it.

    It would put the car setups side by side. The same way you see the car in our garage but for two cars so you could easily look at both and see all the differences without having to memorize or write them down. If I remember right, you could make changes to a file right there.
     
  8. Doesn't sound too complicated. Not a programmer, but I might give it a shot, as a newbie project.

  10. thank you all for your replies. Guenthar was correct.
     
  11. There was another thread that listed some sort of program that would load a couple of setups and show you all the info that way you could compare the differences, but I am not sure where it is at the moment.
     
  12. ooncho, have you tried Notepad? .svm files are text files in fact.

    Best regards.
     
  13. Post #2 :)

    Jim, I posted in that thread too. The problem with his comparator was that it just looked at he numbers in the file and listed them. Everything in the files is noted using plain numbers and while they have a relationship to what you see in the garage they're not the same as the units they represent, you can't see the gear ratios, just a #10 for example and what is a spring of 14?
