Texture Problem On The Original 1969 Mod Matra

Today, 03:50 AM

Posted by Argyle1968 in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Here's one for the car editing guys.

I'm trying to adapt a paint scheme from a modified version of the Matra (pic 1 below) to the Matra included in the original 1969 mod (not the Xtra mod).  My attempt resulted in the car shown in pic 2.

Obviously there are some issues.  I've got the MIPs correctly named.  The driver's name is McNicol, so the MIPs are named mcn4a, mccwing, mccfwng, windjm1 and windjm2.  For some reason when I hex the "ste7a.3do" extracted from the original 69 mod murasama.DAT and save as mcn4a.3do I'm getting the default Matra without numbers.   So I tried using the Mcn4.3do from the "Matra" shown in pic 1 with the Matra car (murasama.dat) from the 69 mod and ended up with the car in pic 2.

I'm assuming the air intakes are the ***spon MIPs, which are included in the driver 3DOs on the 69 mod car but are not included in the 3DOs of the modified Matra in pic 1.   That's problem number 1.  Problem 2 is that the wings default to the Matra "Elf" wings no matter what I hex the names to in the mcn4a.3do (and rename the corresponding MIPS of course)--that one has me totally stumped. And finally, I need to get rid of the high wing struts, which I'm going to assume is the mtrpole.mip file.

I'd really appreciate some input with this because I just haven't been able to figure it out.

Thanks in advance!

Reduce The Heat Of Laptops

Yesterday, 09:49 AM

Some laptops heat up a lot, this is "normal" but there is a major drawback: The CPU speed decreases to avoid overheating (PROCHOT system), and some stutterings may appear in the game ...
The first thing to do is to check the cooling system, remove the dust, and sometimes you need to replace the thermal grease between the CPU / GPU and the heatsink.

If this is not enough, you can decrease the voltage of the CPU and the cache, up to a certain limit (which must be found), in this way the CPU will have the same performance but it will heat less, because the amperage will be lower.

ThrottleStop software allows this, and other things as well, such as preventing the CPU from pausing etc...

Personally, I can't do without it :D

Example here, I drive 3 laps on Monza without ThrottleStop, and with it...
The CPU temperature is much lower (Blue line in graph) :rrunner:
.
If that can help anyone ...

Bargains - Fanatical.com Sale - 'dirt 4' Dirt Cheap, Pc2 On Sale Too.

Yesterday, 02:04 PM

As the title says, if anyone likes to try out alternative sims when they're on sale, Fanatical.com are currently having a spring sale. The two items which caught my eyes are:

Dirt 4 (CodeMasters) currently on a flash sale for £0.74 for the next 20 hours.

Project Cars 2 for £6.74
Project Cars 2 Deluxe for £10.49
Both of the offers above are for the whole 9 days of the sale.

I'm definitely going to get Dirt 4, and I will probably get PC2 Deluxe as well.

It's not that I'm greedy, it's just that I think it's fair if I crash everybody's cars. ;) :D
