But I now used the data.acd from version 1 of the car and then v2 of the car is working. Must be something with ini´s..
Found the problem with ferrari_488_gt3_acc version 2. I can fix it, but I do not know what it does.

How to fix v2:

1. unpack data.acd within ferrari_488_gt3_acc folder
2. delete data.acd
3. open suspensions.ini
4. find this line "USE_DWB2=1" at [_EXTENSION] section
5. comment this line by adding a ";"
6. save the suspensions.ini
7. car is now working with latest CSP version

Does anybody know what this line "USE_DWB2=1" is for?

@Fanapryde
no, did not work here

Something from my wild time:

It's you... 😆

Sorry, had to be...
I saved many who would otherwise have lost themselves in evil trips, with this saying.

Yeah, @TheRealCeeBee ninja me. :lol:
mostly just use the good old kn5 materials tool, its old.. but it works.. without all the schlep of opening the kn5 in 3dsim or screwing around with ext_config you can adjust all material settings you need and just save the damn kn5.

(my version is a little tweaked to allow me to save out the textures themselves, (not in the original tool). Useful when I want to jsut dropkick a texture or two for a skin or something.)

Changed the line to USE_DWB2=0 and the car works indeed. I have no clue either what it means though...

Ah, that's brilliant, thanks, I did search the forum but weirdly these didn't show up, I had to type "cams for castle combe" after seeing this.

It's a track I've been working to update in blender as all the advertisement boards are wrong/in the wrong places, there's no infield tyre barrier IRL and the field in the middle is a solar farm now... taking time though.

Excellent story. About skins and cars, I always download free models that interest me, usually the formula, gt and endurance types, I often buy others. It's a good time to make the changes. As I said, the models as they were created in 3d, it's very difficult to change what I wanted, in case I took the bumpers off to get even closer to the racing models, but I couldn't, at least I changed the wheels, I changed the "DRIVER3D", consequently "DRIVER_SUIT" and "HELMET", I've already put them to test on the track, all right. As they always say, when talking about Endurance or Grand Prix racing, certain brands always come to mind, the Chevrolet Corvette is one of them.
The Cunningham Corvettes' lack of chrome and their Indy-style mag wheels were what distinguished them from the other 'Vettes (like Camoradi's rather diffidently-prepared version).

DWB should stand for Double WishBone - the suspension type. Presumably DWB2 is the second implementation of double wishbone suspension via CSP (or original AC), which may either be not working in your version, or in conflict with the rest of the suspension geometry for this car.

I decided to revisit Valencia Street Circuit, as I haven't driven it in a while, but I remembered that it's one I enjoyed.

There's a few different versions around, but I think I used this as the base:

I then added @Delta7Fox 's update:

There is also an ACU version out there.

-The ai fast lane I had was by @F_B, which was pretty good, but I tweaked the sidelines and removed the boosted ai hints for less crashing. The hints were probably good for some cars, but it could cause issues for others, imo. The ai seems fast enough without them, so I created a blank placeholder instead. Some cars may graze an inside wall on tight turns, but nothing race breaking so far in testing. F_B's original ai can be found here:

-I made detailed Rain FX, and added it to the lighting config found on Shader's Patch Discord. I believe it was uploaded by CreamyCornCob (?). Not sure if he is the author. It was originally for the ACU version, but I altered it and it works fine.

-I also included an alternate groove.ini sourced from the acu version, as the one in the Delta7Fox update may have been botched by a newer version of CSP. YMMV.

-Two DRS zones added by kenkenco, uploaded at RD:

(Side note, kenkenco had also added ai for the track, also available at RD. It's pretty good as well, maybe just a hair slower, but the pit lane is messed up, and no ideal line added to data folder.)

-Lastly, I made some background images for the loading screen as well.

As usual, back up your track before installing. If you have them, delete those darn .bin files etc., from ai folder when updating ai.

Good afternoon. Anyone suggest a Ferrari SF90 Stradale link with working wipers?? Thanks

If possible, link the Ferrari 430 Scuderia with Cleaners as well. Grateful

Yes, that had seen. The wheels I put (Chevy Bel-Air) were similar to the Corvette (team Camoradi), but those from Team BS Cunningham, the wheels were more similar to the GT40 and some other Corvettes I have between 1965 and 1969, but it didn't work. the simple exchange. We're waiting for the Corvette racing version, I've read that they'll be doing it soon. For now I'm like "frankestein", but that you can have fun and put it together with other cars to share the famous curves of the circuits of the time.

I downloaded the "Ferrari 488 Evo 2020 v2 ACC Conversion v2". Cannot remember where I got it.

When loading into game, I cannot drive the car because it says "Validating Setup - please wait". This messages stays all the time so I cannot jump into driving.

Can you help fixing it?

Perhaps I downloaded a bad version of this car. Anyone got a link to v2-version which is working fine?

Thx!

Puh, really bad. Hope to get it running again with newer CSP versions.

But I now used the data.acd from version 1 of the car and then v2 of the car is working. Must be something with ini´s..
It's a known bug that cars with cphys (Extended Physics) aren't working in the newest CSP. It's (apparently) been fixed in the newest preview version (not Patreon).

Very nice. Thank you. The only thing I adjusted for me was the race flags. They were just too bright for me. The Value_1 value was at "255,255,255,1"

Code:
[MATERIAL_ADJUSTMENT_28]
DESCRIPTION = RFlag M
ACTIVE = 1
CONDITION = RACING_FLAG
MATERIALS = rflag, core_start_lights_a
KEY_1 = ksEmissive
VALUE_1 = 255,255,255,0.01

It's almost real looking.

I've noticed a few trends with these 'photorealistic' videos.
They always use ReShade, as well as CSP and a PP filter. I do this too, but a lot of people seem to frown upon this and say that it could cause issues.
I've tried a few of the ReShade settings in these videos (including those used by the person that uploaded this video) and they seem fine for one type of weather, but the second that the weather changes, the effects become either overexposed or too dull.
They always seem to use the same two tracks in their videos - Tsukuba and Nordschleife. That's because the lighting looks good on these two tracks before any other effects are added (although admittedly the uploader whose video you've linked uses a few more tracks in his videos).

My point is that, as impressive as it looks, don't expect every track and every type of weather to look photorealistic without huge changes to your settings every time you start a race. In some circumstances those settings will cause your game to look worse than it does now.
For the sake of your own sanity, you would be better off finding a preset that makes every track look good, even if it makes none of them look photorealistic.

Yeah, the joy of Sol for me is being able to do races that start pre-dawn and finish post-dusk with lots of extreme weather variety in between, so it's important to have a consistent aesthetic throughout this whole cycle. I've never bothered trying Reshade because of all the negative press and issues it can reportedly cause (whether these are true or not... IDK), but find the bundled Sol PPFs perfectly fine in VR.

Hi All, I have an animation modding question. I was trying to create animation for a rear wing. I followed the following youtube tutorial precisely, https:/HOW TO: Hood Animation | Assetto Corsa | 3dsmax/www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjN2tOQjfbxAhVQqJ4KHTiYDOYQwqsBegQIDhAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D5H2qJyMefr0&usg=AOvVaw1fNBK6hItegXFgpA1ENHcZ, but when I open the fbx animation in kseditorAt, the rear wing moves from its original position slightly and when I move the animation bar in the animation tab, it does not play the animation at all. But if I export the model to kn5 and move all the required files to the car folder, I can see the animation in AC manager showroom. But similar to what happened in kseditorAt, the rear wing was moved slightly from its correct position when the car was loaded into AC manager showroom. If I open the same model and fbx animation in Kuno's kseditor, it also move the rear wing slightly, but the animation can be played in it. Can anyone shed some light on me on this? I tried to delete all dummies to start all over again but the same problem remained. I made sure the axis of the animation dummy points to the right direction, Z-forward, Y-up, and units were in meter. Only thing I was thinking is if kseditor would move the object a bit if it was clashing into another object in it's initial position, but I do not think the program cares about that..... thank you

p.s. my wing moves up and down instead of flipping like the hood in the link above, but i don't think i did anything wrong moving it from original position in scene one to its final position which i have picked to be scene 80

Using a ppfilter with a reshade Rt profile also depends on the management of lighting on a circuit, the weather chosen. Personally, I try to create a ppfilter and a realist and generalist reshade Rt preset for all circuits, but not obvious with each version of Sol, CSP, etc.

Sol 2.2 - CSP 0.1.76

Sol 1.5 - CSP 0.1.48

Is there an easy way to make "rpm" lights brighter in cockpit view? I know how to arrange and brighten various items in "digital instruments" but never quite worked out how to specifically make the rpm lights brighter.

Thanks

I really enjoyed your changes to the track, thanks! Is there a way to lower the volume between tyre and track?I find it`s a bit louder than others. Thanks
