Start Lights

L

Lumacor

Hello, I am new to making tracks and using BTB.

I have added start lights to my track and they work so far as they light up, however, they are not in synchronisation with when the HUD start lights go out. They go green too early. How do I get my lights to go green the same time as the HUD lights go out?

I am using BTB Evo and exporting to GTR Evo.

Thanks.

Where are they!!!

I just updated to .9 and I can't find lights anywhere. I've looked in every xpack. What did I miss???

Possibly this, (cut and paste from the FAQ)

None of the new Objects are appearing in my old projects?

As new version of BTB are release, any new Objects are contained in the new XPacks under the BobsTrackBuilder\XPacks folder. They need to be copied to any project that you wish to use them with. eg. Copy the file C:\Program Files\BobsTrackBuilder\XPacks\Default.zip to C:\Program Files\BobsTrackBuilder\My Projects\YourProjectName\XPacks\Default.zip.

The reason this is not done automatically for you is because if an XPack no longer becomes backwardly compatible, because of a missing object or material, then copying into your new project would mean the project would fail to load.
I know I missed it a couple of versions back.

Export the track then load the stlight.gmt or whatever EVO calls it into 3DSimED and set the Event in the textures to these settings. Save it back to your track folder and save a copy somewhere else so you don't have to do it everytime you export from BTB.
Pitlight settings here also if you need them.
Thanks to Goresh for these settings.

Red Light \ stlita
Sequence = 0011110 Frequency = 1
Red Light \ stlitb
Sequence = 0001110 Frequency = 1
Red Light \ stlitc
Sequence = 0000110 Frequency = 1
Red Light \ stlitd
Sequence = 0000010 Frequency = 1
Green Light \ stlite

These are from original EVO tracks.
I don't think it makes any difference either, doesn't have any effect in Rfactor either, aslong as you have seven sequences in EVO and 6 in Rfactor.

Cheers for the guidance guys.

For anyone else who is struggling with this, it was the 'stglow.gmt' file that i had to edit.
