Just wondering if there any updates for this cracking little track?

I`ve looked around here but didn`t find any so thought I`d ask all you knowledgeable chaps...

I don't think there are any. I searched around at one point as well and came up with nothing. Hopefully I am wrong. :P

Hopefully you are but I`m beginning to think your not...

Can`t seem to find any anyway...

Hopefully we`re both wrong.  :P

Hi all !


As far i know, there are no updates out for Cognac.

I made my own with a grey asphalt. And some corrections on mips too.

No, as I say, I don`t think there are any either...

Mmm...

Sadly I`m not talented enough (yet, anyway) to make my own. Would you know where I could get any tutorials or information on doing this kind of thing? I`m becoming more and more interested in it... I realise it`ll probably be quite a lot to get to grips with but I`d like to read up on it if possible. :)

Got any screens of your version Achim? Is it ok to show them?

:)

Hi tjc !

Yes, i will make some screenshots for you.

If you like what i do, we will find a way for the files ...........

In the moment i am at work. Today at evening at home i will post 3 or 4 screens, so you can check what i have done with Cognac-track.

For do some things by yourself, hmmmmmm ..........

I learn it by doing myself.  :huh:  My knowlegde is only for mips and srb's. Never change 3do or other things on tracks. But mip's and srb's are the files i see at driving.  ;)

I use some tools for manipulate some things: GPL Image Viewer / WINMIP2 / DATMAN / PapyBMP / PaintShopPro 5.0 / etc.

Maybe download "GPL Image Viewer" and latest version of "WINMIP2" for a start.

Many thanks Achim...

As I said, I`m becoming much more interested in being able to do updates etc but as of yet know very little about it. I`ll track down those tools you mentioned...

I look forward to seeing your screens. :)

Hi tjc !

At home now and ready for show what changes i make at "Cognac Airfield" and upload the files.

I install the original track and must drive 2 races for my home-league (65er and 69er). At first test i see not good the groove and asphalt and gravel are both violet. Some parts of pit and chicane are very dark, near black.

I change the main asphalt of the track with a mip-file from an other author, fiddle a bit with paintshop for one special asphalt-part and make the asphalt for pit and chicane 12 % more brighter with Paintshop. By checking all files i see the people at pit are with wrong mip-type, starter-box was the same error. I correct this and the black lines around the mip's are gone. Unlucky i don't have the skills for correct the double-pole-error at left pit-side.

I make some screens for show the difference to the original install and load up the new files.

Please unzip all files in your Cognac-folder. If you get any problems or don't like it, delete the additional files and you are back on original.

All credits to the track-editor.


Greetings

Achim

P.S.: I upload the files here first and make another post for the screenshots (see below).

Had a few laps earlier with your updates installed Achim and just popped back to say they`re excellent.

Spot on. Great improvement...

Many thanks again. :thumbup:
