These mirrors show a somewhat realistic view of the cockpit for the 67 cars.  They are much better than the stock mirrors.  Unzip them to a safe place and read the readme.  Then NES improved on my work.  You want these.

...Nice job on the mirrors Mikey...Posted Image  you are right, that is alot of work ... keep up the good work Posted Image  ...

"My mirrors work at all external camera angles and distances" ... you infer that they work dynamicaly  
...when viewed from  the exterior angles, they look ok , on some of the close to the cockpit cam views
but  the others look odd, because the static scene in the mirrors reflection does seem to look right...
Overall you did a fine job... Posted Image  

... i downloaded and tried them out , and i must say, i prefer the nondescript view in the mirrors , personally

It was never my intention to infer they are dynamic mirrors.  That is not possible.  Because they are a static picture they will not be perfect at all angles.  But they beat the heck outta the old mirrors.  The hardest part was modifying the 3dos so each car has its own mirrors.  The mirror mips were easy in comparison.  Hmm.  I think I still have NES's mirror frames around so anyone could make their own mirrors.  

I haven't done it yet, but I intend to use your mirrors starting with the Thundercars, and then certain 66's.  No more 3dos for me.   :mumbles:

Those mirrors are great!  Just one more little detail that adds to the overall ambiance of the game.  It thinks it is sometimes instructive to compare the cars from the original game to how we can get them to look now.

anyone else notice the spectators in the 2nd group of shots are like epic sized? i mean compared to the cars and the trees?

which reminds me. anyone notice there's two spectators near the a van at rouen that are like the michelin guy? 12ft high or something. this is the corner where you turn from the straight onto the cobbly bits to enter the s/f straight

Excuse me, (and sorry if they are easy to find) But I cannot find the tyre texture shown in your second screenshot. They look really cool! Where can I get them?

For those interested in seeing the differences in between the original cars and the hard work put in by editors too numerous to mention I can recommend the GPL Video "Beauty and the Beasts" by Kinst a finer film of GPL has not been made :rolleyes:
