    I searched via Google and in the forum, but couldn't find an answer.
    How can I replace the picture in the track selection menu?
    The loading screen wasn't really an issue, but the track selection still just shows a white screen with "Bob's Track Builder" on top. I scrolled through the whole trackfolder, but haven't found a picture I could replace.

    EDIT: Forget it, I think I found it. It's the Thmb.tga right?

    No not Thumb.tga, it's xxx(track name)_loading.jpg
    Just make up a new jpeg of whatever you like & drop it in after copying the name across...
    I usually use a picture of the route in GE if it's a real road as it's a quick & easy fix much better than that blank screen, plus it shows the locations co-ordinates in case anyone wants to go have a look at it themselves...

    He means the picture when you select the track. Not the loading screen. Like he said in the first post, that is not the issue.[​IMG]

    Exactly. The loading screen wasn't an issue, still waiting for a permission though, because I use a screenshot of a mod car in the background. The thumbnail for the track selection is also done.

    Sorry, my mistake, Im still not running at 100%....
    OK, so if Thmb.tga does that, what does mini.tga do?

    The mini.tga puts a small map of your track into the "race settings"-menu. You can replace that one with a map of your track.
    I use rFactor trackmapper for that.

    Btw. I tried to change the thmb.tga, but it doesn't show up.

    Have you unchecked the "Alpha Channels" while saving it as .tga? I did it and it worked in my first try. I made my custom trackmap by the way. :D Some Photoshop magic and done.
