Hi lads,

in addition to the Menu Set I've made for the 69X'tra mod (if you haven't, check it out at http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=9865) I've made also a matching update to drivers' and newspaper's pics (they will work perfectly also with defaul 69X layout). They are provided in 2 different folders:

- "69 X'tra Newspaper's Pics Set"
- "69 X'tra Drivers Pics Set"

First one, contains all new pics (and also previously missing pics for Oulton's Gold Cup and Silverstone's International Trophy) in colors. There is no need for backups (IF you were using 69X default newspaper's pics) since everything you need for uninstallation and restoring is provided within this folder. Check attachment section for previews.
IMPORTANT  within the Newspaper's pics set 2 folders are provided for installation. "Frame" and "No frame". Frameless picture have the standard GPL layout. Framed pictures have a custom layout I've made (fully compatible with standard newspaper if you're not using my menu set ;) ) which for me is better, but that could be personal taste. Check second pic (between those of the newspaper) for a preview.
This pics are fully compatible with 69X Historical Update*.


Second one, contains new pics for all 69X'tra drivers. Unfortunately, it was not possible to find good pics in color for all drivers. A percentage of 20% of total drivers have black and white pics. Nontheless, I tried to use the best black and white pics I could find so there shouldn't really be any problem.
Most important thing, this drivers' pics set is 69X SPECIFIC. What this means is that it WON'T overwrite your previous standard drivers' pics. So, when you'll run standard GPL 67 or another mod there will be the drivers' pics you were using before installing my update. Only when playing 69 X'tra you'll have updated color pics. I made this because I hate when a Mod or an update to drivers' pics makes a mess with my previous collection for a mod and I have half pictures in colors,  half in black and white and half (a third half :P) in sepia. This way 69X will have it's specific pics and no mess will be done in your layout folder.
Please follow Readme instructions for installation.

*These pics are fully compatible with 69X historical update and TvO Brabham BT26 Update, which I highly recommend.
If you do not know about them, check them out at

(please, if you install those updates, install them first and then apply my update)

Enjoy lads! :)
