Hello sim racers.

Just a question regarding skins files. I´ve downloaded most of the skins make by the community for the different STUDIO397 mods (challenger,GT3, Porsche CUP, Endurance etc..)

Some show up in the list in game, others no. Any solution for that?

I´ve checked the root folder: steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\player\Settings
Also the correct name of the cars

In advance thanks for your support.
 
My hot guess is the old problem with equal driver names causing the game to ignore any duplicate RCD; You would try to avoid that by changing the names - or create VEH files and modpackages ;)

Also it could be a wrong reference to car or class in a RCD file (e.g. the VEH name changed like for official content recently but RCD/skin wasn't updated).

Guess there are little other reasons why skins don't appear in game ;)

If needed sometimes i change the RCD file name .Instead of 1,2,3,4,5 etc i put the same name as the folder.

Do you know if there is a tutorial or a post somewhere, where i can find the explanation of the RCD file content.
Ex:
Team =
Component = Audi_R8LMS_GT3_2018
Skin = alt.dds
VehFile = WARPAINTAL4A98DBA.VEH
Description = IMSA 2019 GTD Frederic Vervisch #88
Classes= 19IMSA_GTD
Number = 88
Etc.....(I know there is some more)

Trying to understand why the skins does´nt appears in the list.
I take this example:

The RCD file looks like this:
//[[gMa1.002f (c)2016 ]] [[ ]]
GT3
{
2018 Strakka #44 Spa24
{
Team = Strakka Racing #44
Component = Mercedes_AMG_GT3_2017
Skin = alt_44.mas
VehFile = MERCSLSGT3DFB72797.VEH
Description = 2018 Strakka #44 Spa24
Number = 44
}
}

In the 2018 Strakka #44 Spa24 folder there is only a MAS file. I make a try unpacking it and adding the DDS file JSON file and replacing the line Skin = alt_44.mas by Skin = alt_44.dds but it still the same .

Can someone knows where is the mistake?

Knowing that in my Mercedes_AMG_GT3_2017 (UserData\player\Settings\Mercedes_AMG_GT3_2017) i have only this skin in it

edit: At first try to change the VEH in the RCD file to: VehFile = MAXERU2C0BAAAC.VEH

1. Try to rename the folder name from "2018 Strakka #44 Spa24" to "2018_Strakka_44_Spa24" and do this in the RCD file too.
2. If this doesn't work too, try to make a new Virtual Ride and copy all STRAKKA files into it. Then make all changes in the RCD file.
