    well, to be honest, only the rF2 footage of the F1LR 2.0 conversion work in progress exists, as far as I know.
    I can put a few AMS images at least. here is the latest visual stage, however its not a final stuff yet.

    supposing a few people already tried to convert the rF mod version into AMS with the rF-GSCE conversion tool. it is not allowed without permissions of course, but its the quick way to check how the cars will handle...

    Well so far from what I've seen and heard, they both look and sound good, so If the handling is there this should be a winner all the way around !

    well, I can say the car handling depends also on what for Automobilista game version the user have, I suppose... see below.

    to be honest, at my Steam game version all Reizas cars seems to me they are undrivible with a keyboard control - which is for me as a 2D/3D mod stuff maker my default sim game control ;) my G25 steering wheel mostly sleeps patiently in a dusty box.

    when turning the default F-Vintages cars left or right it tilts like a boat on a stormy sea. even the super-exaggerated GPL game car handling is a lot stable comparing to this :) Ive tried a few another AMS default cars, including something like Audi R18 looking car, and same result, it tilts like a boat when turning left / right, just less a bit, comparing to the F-Vintages.

    and now the important thingy: Ive got from one friend some stripped AMS game variant, Steam independent, for internal testing our mods there too. what is interesting is the physical results made at this game variant - Ive made a copy of the F-Vintages into this game, out of a pure curiosity, ran it there and the "tilty boat" effect was a much much less noticable.

    as to our F1LR cars, they runs at the Steam AMS game version very well, however they acting just bit more "wilder" comparing to the AMS stripped game variant. therefore its all about the current game engine updates, I would say.

    note: original Reizas car physical files (hdc, tires, suspensions) and sfx soundset files are encoded into the AMS main exe file, to be protected from modding / ripping.

    Looks beautiful! It took me a very long time to get used to the F Vintage physics, lots of understeer! Looking forward to seeing how this mod handles :)

    looking for someone who could make a decent videofootage. a trailer, racing record, various cam cuts... in HD resolution.

    I'd love to help but my video editing skills aren't good enough. I'll see if anyone in the Australian group might be able to help.

    You know that's who I'm aiming it at :)
    But it sounds like he's working a fair bit at the moment.

    thanks guys for bothering the video record case ;)
    well, some trailer would be there just to "hook" some simracers to try the mod / to inform about some upcoming release, still for any common videofootage isnt needed anything special infact. I personally would do it all myself, but lacking a very important thing - a decently powered PC. and enough of free HDD space.

    as to the video cuts etc. I just dislike boring videos presenting a car running ages on a track, taken from same "fly-by" external camera view (a PageDown key for AMS). every footage needs some kind of action... it can be achieved simply by switching the cameras when record, wisely :)

    as to the trailers, again its easy, here is my short and actually a first videorecord made everfor youtube by past, created with Windows Movie maker. no Adobe Premiere needed :)

    btw, together with the Britus 43 footage taken with my poor smartphone has been published two another records aswell, this time with Yonda RA300 . if you didnt noticed it and you still arent shocked of the video "quality" too much, you may check the stuff below.

    ok guys, I was playing latest days to get working the cockpit RPM warning lights.
    I never thought it is so complicated for AMS. once Ive got it working for one car finally by cloning the mesh material settings and cpitinfo.ini related row logics from F-Retro car, Ive cloned it into the other ones and the result is it doesnt work with no F1LR car... unbelievable.

    this hugelly slowdowns the mod finalisation.

    It's looking great man! And no shame in asking for a little help from the guys mentioned above. You have a great mod being developed and it deserves to be completed the way you intended it to be! You have already created something great , and to make it totally awesome on a new platform from guys who " know " that platform....could make your mod better then you may think is possible. And thank you!!....for creating such an awesome mod! Hope to be able to drive it one day.

    thank you :)

    yesterday Ive tried to rework the windshields for AMS mod version. they are remodelled, with a new glass shader.
    its not exactly what I wanted to achieve yet, but does look not so bad, I would say :)

    thank you ;)

    well, I can say my plan is to fix a few things like the cpit warning light, the driver head mesh materials / mesh shaders and the windshields only, for the initial public release. unfortunatelly the christmass time is soon there, which means a time for family and friends rather then any deep night sitting at PC :)

    well, during latest 15 years (or more) of a modding Ive learned a less is more, infact, so I am not hunting for making things superperfect... but I cant promise any release date, even not any aprox one :/
