I'm sorry if this ain't right place to ask but I'd like to know how to replace old Elkhart track with the new Road America that was released recently. I mean in the CA71seas.ini file that is. Could somebody tell me please how to do it?

If you are only asking how to change the track within the ca71seas.ini file - find the Road America entry and replace it with this:

[Event XX]
name=Road America Can-Am Challenge Cup
shortname=Road America Can-Am
trackDirectory=roadamer
trackShortName=Road America
flag=usaflg
month=8
day=29
numberOfLaps=50
startingGrid=2

Change the [Event XX ] with the event number from the old Road America entry.

Thank you very much. That's exactly what I wanted to do. And BTW, I noticed that there is an empty event in the CA71seas.ini file (from the latest historic add-on). It's event no. 11 (under section "other events / venues). I don't know if it's left empty intentionaly or not?

It may be a Can-Am track that is available that you did not have installed when you installed CA71.  Maybe Nassau???

No, it's an original file from the historical update that I downloaded from CA71 website.

One more thing I would like to ask about CA71seas.ini file - I've just noticed that Road Atlanta has two different entries there. First one - as event #3 (track folder name: roatla71). And second one - as event #12 (track folder name: roada). Is it because those two tracks have different layout?

roatla71 is a relatively new track made by community member Gaus.

roada is an import from another sim ... very basic and should be replaced by the new track.

Thank you very much for the explanations. I wasn't sure about the layout of those two tracks (I have only roatla71 installed). Looks like I don't need the other one.

Hi.

Does anyone know how I have to rename the file bwpic in order to have a correct picture on the winner newspaper?
I tryed to rename the pwpic.pbf to pwpic71CA but at the end of the race I don't see the picture on the newspaper.
Here and example.

The newspaper image for the CA71 Mod is named bwpicCA.pbf.  It must be placed in the track's folder that you are racing on.

There are images for each of the Can-Am '71 tracks.

Also, for your info, the newspaper image for the CA66 Mod is named bwpicCB.pbf.

Hi.

Thank you very much for the explanation, I've just solved my problem.
I share with you all my bwpic.
I did not have the image for the tracks, I don't know why, so I decided to makes mine...
