    I've updated the description and moved the big red disclaimer re Windows 10, as one of the reviews has confirmed it works on Windows 7.

    If anyone reads this and has found other cars (than RSS Hybrid/F2) where it is useful, then let me know as I'd be interested to hear.

    is it just the 2017 car that's missing or are non of them showing up? seems odd. I tested it on a clean machine with a fresh install of AC too.

    for the tires is it showing you a folder list at all? if so you pick (in the case of my tires) the 1K or 2K folder etc not the '1. Pink hypersoft', etc or the folder that contains the 3 resolution folders. Propably could have explained it a bit better sorry!

    if not then please post screenshots so I can see where it's going wrong. Thanks.

    This is why it's a version 0.9 as there may be some teething troubles that I haven't foreseen :)

    sorry the folder problem is solved it was my mistake and the 2018 hybrid and rss f2 are there but not the 2017 car. maybe its because I deleted the cars that don't fit the real rules so I deleted the normal 2017 hybrid and the s1 version of the 2018 car.

    if this is the case I don't get it made the cars independent of the parent cars in cm

    Phew had me worried about tires!

    For the 2017 car they are separate cars so it should work. Did you change anything in the UI.json file for the car? It checks name, folder name, author and something else (can't remeber at the minute but the value is also 'Race Sim Studio'). There is a 'parent car' setting in the JSON but it doesn't check that.

    Away from a pc just now so I can't check but if still an issue I'll try it with deleting the standard 2017 car later

    @bob76 2017 S1 seems to be working OK here without the 'normal' 2017 car...
    2017-1.PNG
    2017-2.PNG
    1st one is from my machine... as you can see I just cut the normal 2017 car folder out of the AC cars folder (on D drive) and pasted it to my desktop temporarily.
    2nd one is from the Virtual Machine I used for some testing, with a clean install of windows, steam, AC and the 2017 car (on C drive). Did the same again and shows up ok. Both of these are running the exact same release version that you will have downloaded and was installed using the installer in the zip file.
    It must be either the UI file that you've changed (with CM perhaps) or renamed the car's folder?

    Here is the text out of the supported cars file which it checks against the values in ui_car.json - upper/lower case not relevant as all text from both sides is converted to upper case before a comparison is done:

    "Brand": "Race Sim Studio",
    "Year": "2017",
    "Author": "Race Sim Studio",
    "Version": "ALL",
    "FolderName": "rss_formula_hybrid_2017_s1",
    "Name": "Formula Hybrid 2017 S1",

    Version 'ALL' means it ignores the version and accepts any version.

    Hope this helps :)

    Hmmmm.... I knew I should have built some kind of log functionality in to see what's happening in the event of an issue!
    Is Steam installed on C drive and have a separate library folder on D with AC in? I did intend to test this configuration but it got missed.. should have done more testing! this is why it's version 0.9 to iron out bugs.

    I have the same problem, AC is in a separate library folder than steam and it also crashes when trying to find AC.

    Ok sorry guys I should have tested that scenario. I'll get on to it tomorrow. Is the 2nd library still e.g. D:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\ etc or a completely different folder?

    It's probably as simple as it's not quite giving up when trying to find it in the main steam install.. supposed to ask to locate manually but not getting to that part for some reason.

    I'll definitely have a look and fix it tomorrow. Can you tell me:

    Do you have a libraryfolders.vdf file in \steamapps subfolder on C (inside main steam install).

    I believe it should contain something like this e.g.:
    "LibraryFolders"
    {
    "TimeNextStatsReport" "xxxxxxxxxxx"
    "ContentStatsID" "xxxxxxxxxxx"
    "1" "D:\\mygames"
    }
    and then in the folder specified (our folder on D:\) there will be a \steamapps subfolder containing some files with .acm extension, 1 of which will have 244210 in the file name (the steam content ID for Assetto Corsa).

    This will really help me out I should then be able to get autodetect working for this configuration, but I will first look at why it doesn't give up and ask as it is now.

    Edit: Had a quick look and it's trying to open a file that doesn't exist instead of checking it exists before trying to open it sorry! I'll post an update tomorrow to fix it (after more testing). If one of you can check your files as above for me I can get autodetect working in your setup too, and could maybe add a couple more cars... not sure which other ones have tire packs - there's a pack with different brands for the RSS GT cars I think maybe?

    This is the path to my AC folder H:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\assettocorsa
    Also I do have the ACF your talking about in the steamapps folder on my H drive
    for the VDF file it says this
    "LibraryFolders"
    {
    "TimeNextStatsReport" "1524360679"
    "ContentStatsID" "2743221365801019663"
    "1" "D:\\SteamLibrary"
    "2" "G:\\SteamLibrary"
    "3" "H:\\SteamLibrary"
    }

    other cars you are missing are all the ACFL cars. they include a more basic tire swapper but i would much rather use this.

    I'm afraid I will not support anything ACFL do as they steal other peoples work/assets - this has been well discussed in a number of places.

    Thanks a lot! Only problem I see now is that if you change the brand and car name in content manager, the car doesnt show up in the app so I had to restore the original ui to see them. Thanks for the quick update though. :)

    No probs. I had a little time tonight and got it fixed and by doing that made it easier to implement the better autodetection.

    What did you change out of curiosity?

    I thought it would be better to have more checks to be sure it's the right car. I guess I change it down to only look at folder name and author, as I don't imagine those would be changed by anyone.

    :)
