The virtual mirror mod (stickied at top of forum) is great but if, like me, you run GPL at a lower FOV then the virtual mirrors get cut off the screen.

I run GPL with an FOV of 60 so I've edited the 3do files to bring the mirror back on screen.

Couple of pics....

Backup your 'cars67' folder then drop the 3do files into their respective folders (I can't guarantee compatibility with your particular installation or carset)

Credit goes to the original editor/uploader and if I've stepped on anyone's toes please let me know.

Try to use Lee's "no letterbox patch" to get rid of the black bars...

Cookie,

Any advice on how to create  virtual mirrors for the 55 cars? I see they're all dat files and not 3do.

Thanks,

Will

The 3do files are contained within the dat files.  You can extract and edit them;  no need to repack the edited files, the game will read loose files first then the ones in the dat.

Thanks. Just need to figure out which 3do to edit. I checked out a few at random but cant find the cockpit. If that's in fact the one I need. I'll reread the file on how to build virtual mirrors and give it the old college try. Cheers. Will
