Thread: Reskins?

  1. #1

    Default Reskins?

    I thought reskin/repaints wasn't possible with R8? How is this possible?

    One can "Hack" just about any file(s) with the correct tools.

    V1 was very popular for "Hacks.
    V2 not quite as much, still do able, which some of those later models may be carryover to V3.
    With each "Hack" more safety measure(s) come along with further updates, nature of the beast.

    It's when thing(s) go wrong, that can become a problem. & Can
    very much understand the team not wishing to support that position for the moment.

    It's not that difficult, however as far as I know you'll have to purchase more cars in order to get more variety. Basically once you have a car you can change the texture on it but it's not like you have hundreds of new cars. It also doesn't change the reporting marks or the number board fonts as far as I know.

    Thanks

    can you make custom models though? like you could with ORTS or Trainz?

    Not that I know of. I can't even read the length and weight of the cars (actual and not rounded such as the TMU). These are locked up in protected files.

    There is no supported editor in Run8. Still personally I wouldn't run anything else. I'll purchase what I need, when I need it.

    Thanks

    at the moment no modder for run8 has cracked the code to put in completely new and original models. as is by design by the devs making the r8 file format. all they know how to do for the moment is retexturing anything in the game and sounds. some things are actually really lovely, such as a retexture for all of socal.
