Is anyone working on getting lights added to the following tracks?
  • acu_mexico_osrw
  • acu_unitedstates
  • acu_yasmarina
I see there are ini files for shaders patch but very little or no lights on these tracks at all. Some tracks have extra KN5 files. I would think that this is where you assign lights? Any tutorials out there on how this can be done and which applications can be used to do this?

Mexico already has a light config.

Yas Marina has a light config too but, due to FPS issues, i removed main track lights and left only other kind of lights such as purple lights and flag lights, and lighted the ambient up trough the weather file, increasing ambient brightness in the night weather file. The combination looks amazing.

If you want my Yas Marina config with the fake glow night config i can send it to you.

Hi Bruno,
Thank you very much for the response. I would definitely like to have the Yas Marina config. I'm not sure if the version of Mexico is the problem that I have at the moment then. There are very few lights that work on my version. And most of them are on buildings, almost nothing on track. If you PM me your email address, would you mind uploading your versions of the tracks and config files to my google drive folders?

I will tell you how i installed mine. I used "JSGME" app to activate the shaders lights patch. After that i only put the config files in it's directory (assettocorsa<extension<config<tracks). There is no need to use any other app. You must set time to 18:00 in order to turn the lights on for these tracks.

Both tracks have already corrected AI lines.

Tested and Mexico looks really good. Yas Marina also works well. Sorry to be a bother though. Do you by any chance have the COTA cirtuit and config? I hace ACU_UnitedSates but for some reason that also does not have any working lights. I dont see any extra kn5 file for it in the config folder.

Cool, do you know if anyone has started on it yet? If not, this is definitely something I'd like to get to know how to do :)

Hi Bruno,

Hi Bruno,
Could you post your config file again for acu_yas marina? The original night version for this was absolutely awesome. However, after installing CM and the Shader Patch it looks terrible. It is completely washed out where there is light or completely dark with no light at all. Sounds like you may have found a solution to bring this track back to all it's glory.

Hi, I'm going to have to test Mexico to see if the ini file I have still works. I'll let you know, but if it doesn't work, I'm not sure where to get a working version though.

Hi Graham,

I have now solved the issue and am working to do the same on other tracks.

Cheers

I had to copy the script from github and create a new .ini file from a blank txt document.
literally copy and paste, works a treat
