    There isn't a xenon mod per se - but there is a light flare mod. However it is needs implementing for each mod and needs fairly good skills in 3DSMax

    You could still change the DDS and TGA files - but again it would be mod specific.

    The rF light 'glow' on the tarmac is a just a TGA file - you can easily make it longer and brighter - but you need to position it correctly also.

    In most of the series you put this file in vehicles folder:

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=G49ACH7S
    Credits to Voma and Epox for the file.

    Then open the vehicle.gen file of the car you are going to use and change these lines like this:

    "Projector=Headlight
    {
    Moveable=True Dyn=True Active=False Pos=(0.0, 0.10, -77.2) Dir=(0.0, -0.5, -1.0) Radius=(28.0) Blend=(InvDstColor, One) Texmap=HL_2_PLR.dds
    }"

    And it's done!

    In other series like for example Endurande Series you will put the DDS file in the Vehicles/EnduranceSeries folder.

    Hey guy's I used this link to get the files and had to dig them out off my Temp file. Lucky to find them at all. I'd recommend using the RD link.
