Hey mates.

I've started skinning the chevrolet extreme car, but how come i can't get it ingame? it's nowhere to find in the customskins readme and [Chevrolet Lacetti Extreme] doesn't work.

Can anyone help or is it un-skinnable atm?

It's a million-to-1 chance, but it just might work

Pretty sure I read somewhere that the skin was locked :( I think it was a post in the GTRe skins section

Found it:

Nobody knows the ini lines for either the:

Seat Extreme
BMW Extreme
Chevy Extreme

Also there seems to be a problem regarding the EVO driver files as in custom one are as of yet not showing. The only NEW line for EVO people can get to work is the "Wheelcolor" line

wheelcolor=1 (white wheels)
wheelcolor=2 (silver wheels)
wheelcolor=3 (black wheels)

You'll have to wait it out like the rest of us till Simbin decide to:

A. release a new readme covering all new EVO and STCC skins and teplates
B. Release a patch to get the Evo Driver line to work correctly

I found a while back you can get one in game .... but its a little screwy and gives you a bunch of entries in place of the defaults ... :confused:

No ini requried ... directory and filename to do this as below:

Create directory
\GameData\Teams\WTCC_Extreme\Chevrolet Lacetti Extreme\Chevrolet\

Name your skins as below and put them in the above directory ...
00006_LACETTI_X_BODY_D.dds
00006_LACETTI_X_windows_D.dds
and/or
00007_LACETTI_X_BODY_D.dds
00007_LACETTI_X_windows_D.dds
and/or
00008_LACETTI_X_BODY_D.dds
00008_LACETTI_X_windows_D.dds

Only 3 def skins, so this is limited and messy in game.

(BTW ... this is for the online version, be careful you don't overwrite the originals if you have the offline version!!)

i for my wait till simbin have sorted it out should be not taht long since there are a lot of probs with
- 3 of the 4 WTCC cars locked
- Corvette C5R-GTP bodyfile locked
- Driver Suites int and ext are on all evo cars locked
- Helmets on all evo cars locked

i think i read somewhere that this is not all and there are errors with the STCC cars too but i dont can confirm since i still waiting for a Steam release of it
