    I've suggested that we should but Craig doesn't want too, but if anyone has a skin which is not loading they should be booted. Pleased to see the earlier post on that front from Craig.

    But I think there is an option in game for me not to load custom skins? Rather than it being at server level, I'm sick of problems caused by others.

    I love a custom skin, but if not using one means the game has less problems then I'm happy to use a default one to ensure this and I think others should be as considerate.

    @Craig Dunkley

    I did not get an alert from this post, if you add a tag after the post it does not work. Wanted to let you know as others might not see it. Might be worth adding something to the OP?

    It seems good to me that skins are used if the box is green, if a pilot sees it in red or gray that leaves the server and fix it or not participate, that is correct for me,Obviously if there is no solution, then official skins:);)

    Yep, there is a "load custom skins" setting, don't remember exactly where... No in front of my PC so can't tell you exactly before this evening, but I'm pretty sure you'll find the box to uncheck. :)

    Multiplayer.JSON, lines 23 and 24

    "Download Custom Skins":true,
    "Download Custom Skins#":"whether to automatically download skins from when clients join server with custom skins",

    I think there's a checkbox somewhere in-game too. But mine is in a middle of a big update atm and can't run it to check.

    The issues might be more with the server not properly handling clients that don't have skins set up right. So it might not do much if nothing at all if a client is set to not download them. But just speculation on my part.

    Take me off the reserves list, please. Haven't had time to properly reinstall rF2 and can't be bothered at the moment. I'll let @Cosimo have a go with his new pedals if a spot opens up ;)

    I have been doing some testing with custom skins ...if your skin consist of one file (.dds .mas) all appears to be good. However if you use a skin that comes with 2 windows files (custom front and rear) included it will fail to load correctly. So it appears the custom windows are the cause..delete the two windows files and let rF2 use its own default windows instead, then you should be good to go. I believe this issue is only at this track.

    I'm sorry to do this again Craig, but I'll have to sign out! Out for the day with the family and the weather is so good we're going to stay out and make the most of it. Happens so rarely! I'll have to stop signing up for races I can't attend :redface:
