    Hi All

    I just started to do some multiplayer but i don't really like the Original skins from all the cars in SCE

    So i downloaded some really cool skin but when i joined a server it said something with a mismatch.

    So my question is :
    Is there any way to use skins on Servers without getting kicked/booted etc?

    If so
    then please explain it sort of simple because i'm not really a PC Geek Lol

    You can only use custom skins in multiplayer if those skins are loaded on the server.

    If you dont know whether this has been done, you are best to stick with original skins

    you can overwrite the originals so you see the skins you want to see... but only you see them, as they are only on your PC, skin packs from ML2166 do this very thing... only problem is if you use the sync app it will want to overwrite all those skins again back to the originals

    Content downloading is something that would be awesome and would solve lots of MP frustration in GSCE.

    Not have missmatch use own skin worked in rf1
    if drivers not have the "new" skins server drivers not get missmatch drivers load the default skin that comes with the mod.
    That way was not even server need to have the "new"skins installed
    Only people that could see the "new" skins must offcourse download the skin pack to see the skins other wise they see default skins ops long explain
    Do a new folder like this name it SKINS
    x:\Program Files\rfactor\GameData\Vehicles\Megane\Addon\
    Renault Sport\SKINS
    In that skins folder you can create a MISC folder

    End of prb with mismatches that way here is a link to some megane skins and you can see the structure how it was done
    i hope it works in GSC also look at Fiber Racing Megane Skinpack READ ME v0.92.txt GL

    Just put the some name in the new skins dds files.

    Example:
    originalskin.dds newskin.dds

    rename the newskin.dds to originalskin.dds and overwrite the file in the originalskin folder

    Are there any PC Racing games that get this right? It's amazing that we have all this power to skin cars, and then we can't use/share them when we're racing online. GT6 has nowhere near the flexibility, but you never have to worry if your custom paint job works or not. :p

    I found a way to use skins in multiplayer!

    I downloaded the F1 1977 skinpack for the Formula Retro.

    Turns out that if you name the teams in the skins folder just like the original reiza teams then you can use your own skin online.

    Trackmania does it (ya, it's arcady, but it's only about the download thingy, right? *g*)

    The issue with automatically downloading user created content is that you can't ensure that there are no unwanted things on the cars - pornography, racism, ...

    Yes, same names will work but you will be alone to see them

    Sometimes I forget that I live in a world where people of all ages act like twelve year olds.

    On a side note, I love how sce auto saves replays. :)
